I haven't heard of it. Before doing anything potentially destructive, gather information that might help solve the problem.
What is the controller? Is the raid created by the controller and Windows installed on top of it?
Do you have indicator lights when one of the drives goes bad?
For raid5, you can replace one of the three drives and rebuild the array. If two drives go bad, then you can't recover.
However, once at work, we had a baffle go bad, and the temperature inside dropped to -20 F causing the drives to freeze up and all of the drives were marked bad by the controller. We were able to recover by entering a command to "pretend" the array was OK. It actually was OK and that trick worked.
You probably have a raid setup screen. It is important to find this out before running a third party program.
