    Only if the controller and drivers are identical to the old one. Also, if this is a bootable array, you need the identical MB to boot it.

    Of course, this is where your backups come in, right? You do have backups, no?

    Yes, good up until last week, so it is not a life or death thing, but it would still be more convenient to have access to these drives.
    thanks,
    Dave

    I'm guessing unless you have an identical controller, that's not going to happen.

    That should do the trick, providing the lightnling didn't take one or both of the drives. ;)
