Our network has a small file server running Windows 2003 Server.  It is setup with six hard drives with s RAID array system.  Not sure if its linear or not, or if that even matters...

It appears that a file folder called "Marketing", which contained many sub folders and documents, turned into a 0kb file this morning.  I'm not sure what to do, whether this is reversible or salvageable data.  

Is the information that used to reside within the "Marketing" folder recoverable?  
What might have caused this issue?

If shadow copy is running, then no problem. Right click the file, click Properties, click Previous versions, pick open to view the contents, if OK, pick copy to place a copy in a specified location or restore to overwrite.
