I just sent a few text messages back and forth with a friend who used
to work at STK and knows a little about them.
Quote: "The hardware is a boat anchor without the software."
He didn't give a lot of details, but didn't hold out a lot of hope for
you. Best bet is to try to find a STK guru who held onto the CDs.
If you are sure they are RAID0 on each unit, just mirror each RAID0 to
get RAID10; that might give you enough redundancy.
Sorry to be negative, STK was never an open company to begin with ...
