transfer raid 0 array from freenas to windows

I have three disks in raid 0 with some data on it (not mission critical). This pool was created on a freenas installation and I was wondering if there is a way to re-mount the same raid 0 array in windows server. I created three vdisks in my raid card (one for each drive) and Freenas dealt with the pool creation across the three drives. Is there a way to open the array on windows or at least link the three drives back together in windows. I know the filesystem is going to be a problem but I first want to know if it would be possible at all to re-link these drives in Windows.

Answer

if there is a way to re-mount the same raid 0 array in windows server

No, there isn’t. Even if it was on a binary level, the FS (FreeNAS uses ZFS) will not be moundable under windows.
