I have four hard disks, each one is 2 TB, they were configured as spanned  dynamic disks under windows, I want to get the data from them,

1- How can I find the orders orders of the drives. The disk orders
2-I will try to use R-Studio to recover the data, but what is the offset from the start and the empty space at the end, I need the sectors offset from the start and end, in order to build Volume set.
3-Do you have any idea of a utility that can recover the data from the spanned dynamic disks.

I tried the whole disks, and in all options, but could not succed.

Please help me.

Thank you in advance

You first need to explain what happened in the first place.
What hardware and OS ?
What happened and what errors are you having ?

I hope this helps !

How did you loose the partition ?

I would first try either chkdisk or the free diskchk, and then easeus, but before anything.
I would do a byte by byte image of all 4 disks to another drive ( Ghost or similar in byte mode )
so that if you do not succeed with 1 program, you will be able to test some other by doing a full byte level restore.
