    Raid Drive missing windows 7

    wayne2oo8

      Hello,  I have (3) 2TB drives ran in RAID 5 that seems to have this disappeared in windows 7 this morning.  I believe the RAID is controlled through my motherboard (ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z), using AMD RaidXpert utility.  This utility shows all physical drives status as 'functional', S.M.A.R.T. Status 'Healthy' and the logical drive status as 'functional' with all 3 physical drives assigned to it.  RaidXpert event log shows no recent logs (last one 20 days ago).  Windows disk manager shows the array as unallocated, not initialized.

       

      No windows updates have been installed, only thing that was changed was new version of mozilla firefox installed yesterday (which I used the array after installation anyways).  I have done a system restore to last week to no avail.  Is there any way to get windows to see the array again without losing data?  See attached images
