Raid configuration deleted

Hi, I have a dell power edge R440 server with two SSD configured in raid 1 format, but unfortunately i have cleared the raid configuration from system setup. Now how can i restore the configuration without loosing data!

Depending on the controller, you will see either a foreign configuration (where controller raid configuration data differs from configuration data present on drives), in that case you would need to import the foreign in order to get the configuration from the drives. The other thing would be that you may need to retag the Virtual Disk, a retag is where you go through the process of recreating the virtual disk (must be configured exactly as before (raid level, stripe size, etc) but when you create it you do NOT initialize it, as that will format the drives and delete the data. 

Let me know if this helps.
