My hard disk on the server has crash.  The OS hard disk is the one that has crashed.  I have setup a raid 5 setup on the server.  How can I get back the data that was on the other drive.  I remove all the drives and plugged it on an XP PC to retrieve the data but I cannot see any data on the drives and also does not show a NTFS Partition.  I am very much in need of the data. Please advice my on how i can get the data back.  I am wondering why the server did indicate that the drives where about to fail.  Also I am not sure on which hard the data was kept.  How will I  come to know on which drive the data was Kept.
