Hello all,

2 Raptor 160 GB Alien drives.

Drive O is intact.
Drive 1 has been formated and reloaded but nothing more. I can pick up the all the files but cannot open any. Is this recoverable in a lab?

Some data should be recoverable.  When hard drives are striped, data is basically split between the two drives with no redundancy.  When you reformat a drive, the data is marked as overwriteable, but is usually not completely lost.  If you brought both hard drives to a lab, some data may be recoverable, but don’t expect this to be cheap.
