I had all hard drives connected to Mobo SATA ports, i then bought and installed 2 Dell SAS cards and connected the hard drives to them. The storage controllers are showing in Device Manager just fine. Now Flexraid cannot see the hard drives... how do I get it back running?

Well-typically you have to go into the bios for the SAS card and tell it how you want to handle all of the drives connected to it.
In other words the card needs to know if it allocates drives into a RAID0.0.1.JBOD configuration.
Once you have configured the hardware then the operating system and its drivers will see the arrays/drives connected to the controller. Good luck.
