RAID 5 two HD failure

Hello all,

I can use some help here. My server has 6 160 GB SATA on a CERC 6-Channel SATA RAID Controller. Drive 5 failed and I was sent a replacement. In the day the sent the replacement drive 0 failed. What are my options to recover? I know I am shooting for a longshot but I would appreciate any tricks or attempts.

I have ran a media check on all 6 drives with drive 0 failing. Drive 5 is new and I intialized it but it still shows greyed out in array manager.

No backup....only had received server on Wednesday, loaded O/S, ran updates, was transferring data and BAM!

I actually have 99 percent of the data since the transfer just began. I am sure I could recover the rest with old e-mails and such. So I already blew it out and started over.

Jeff you get the points for the attempt at constructive help. Not like the previous sarcastic answer.
