Accidentilly deleted Raid 5 config and need data back.
Posted on 2011-02-26
I have a DEll Poweredge 830. It was set up with (3) 80 gig drives in a raid 5 configuration using a 6 port Raid pci controller. It had Windows Server 2003 as OS. The drives were set with 3 partitions forming (fat partition), C drive and D drive.
I was attempting to add (3) 500 gig drives in another raid 5 configuration then move an image of the first raid to the second.
However, during editing my second Raid Configuration, I had the first raid array highlighted and deleted the array and lost all data in the first Raid 5 array.
I put the array back together in the raid bios but how it is completely blank.
Anyway to recover this data? If so, what steps must I take to do so? I have a program called File Scavenger but never uset it on a Raid 5 array.
