Re: HP MediaSmart EX485 - System Drive Failed - Questions So reading between the lines, it sounds like the HP device runs Windows, yes?
Chances are it uses NTFS then. However, whether or not it uses "dynamic disks" is unknown -- my guess is that's probably what it uses. Really don't know at this point though. As you can see from the documentation (bottom of page), there are multiple models/methods available. If striped (that means RAID-0) then the data is lost (n+0 bytes would be on the 1TB disk, n+1 bytes would be on the 750GB disk). If spanned (concatenated), there may be recoverable data but I'm not sure. if RAID-5, the data is lost. If mirrored (RAID-1), I would say the data is probably recoverable.
