Recover data from SAS disk drive

New customer has a fried Prolient (Ml350 G5) with 2 DF072A9844 SAS disks. We want to remove the disks and recover as much data as we can. Can I connect one of the drives to an inexpensive SAS controller (Promise, HighPoint or such) just to access the data only and copy to another drive?

Re: Recover data from SAS disk drive

Yes if the drives were stand-alone or a part of RAID1 set.

Yes that worked!  Thank You!

I bought an inexpensive Highpoint 2642 SA/SATA controller and used the enclosed cables to connect both drives to a Windows 7 machine. The drives must have been RAID 1 since data looked the same on each drive. I was able to copy all over to a USB drive for recovery on their new server.
