Web server using CentOS with 3 drives RAID 5 using a 3Ware 4 Port 9650SE-4LPML RAID Card will not rebuild raid
Posted on 2010-08-18
I have a dedicated server with 3 drives and RAID 5 using a 3Ware 4 Port 9650SE-4LPML RAID Card at ServerBeach hosting 70 website. Yesterday my websites began to fail and the server died I called support they told me that there was a RAID failure, the techs tried to fix the raid to no avail as per the techs the raid can not be rebuilt I have the following email from their support:
I replaced the raid card with a brand new one, still showing the two existing drives as an unusable array and I cannot rebuild the previous array
had a couple other guys here take a look, no matter what combination of hardware or configuration we try this RAID cannot be rebuilt.
3x's 250 GB SATA
3Ware 4 Port 9650SE-4LPML RAID Card
How can my data be gone? They have sent the drives to a recovery comapny will they be able to recover my information? Can someone explain this to me I need as much information as possible?
