Hi Expert !

I have a NAS Solution THECUS, which is on RAID 5 with 5 disk.
I use it to deploy my master of PC and for all my software sources.

The problem is : i have 2 disk failed and i wait to receive two new disk.
the question is :

Do you think i have a chance to recovering my volume even with 2 disk failed ?

Thank you

incredibly high ... with a data recovery firm and maybe $4000.

A professional recovery agency might be able to get the data, but it would very expensive.

Maybe you have another problem rather than 2 disks like in this post

So just goes to show that not always are 2 disk failures actually a failure at all of the disks them selves but actually a controller issue!

Hard drive recovery services can generally recover data from failed arrays such as yours.  It can be expensive depending on how much data you have and how fast your need it back.  About 4 years ago, I had 800gb recovered from a failed 3 disk raid 5 array.  Drive failed on Saturday, I had the data back on Monday night.  Cost was just under $10,000 (overnight service was most of the cost).

Ok, so a chance to get back my RAID 5 volume after having replaced two new disk doesnt exist.

Probably not. Runtime Software has software that might work, if your drives can all be recognized by windows.

The drive may be failed, but still readable.  If not, then you need to perform an off the metal recovery by a specialized service.
