as stated above, i use recuva, works as good as any other recovery software. beyond that you would have to pay for recovery from a professional which can cost big bucks

the softperfect program should do. I used it on NTFS volumens. The RAID is transparent 8at least it should be).

If your RAID array has not been broken and your MFT is good, then it should work.  Should have mentioned before that you want to stop using the drive until you get a tool to run to search for the deleted files.  Typically the file is just marked as 'deleted' in the MFT, but the actual data has yet to be overwritten, so you need to stop users from accessing and writing new data to the drive ASAP otherwise you risk the 'deleted' data actually being overwritten and then it will be corrupt and you can't recover it.
