Hi, I have a windows server 2012 with one solo HD for the OS and 2 HDs in RAID 1. The OS HD got corrupted, so i want to put a new HD but now install windows server 2019. So my question is, is the new OS going to recognize the RAID 1 without problems? If not, do i need to somehow backup any array information stored in the old solo HD?

TKS

    Assuming a hardware raid. It should just work, but not a guarantee. Just don't initialize or anything like that.

    No, it is not hardware RAID 1, i used the windows server 2012 RAID 1 capabilities to create the array.
