Hi All,

Had a server crash & had to change 2 drives in the 6 disk RAID 5 array. Recovered the C:\ and D:\ from an image we had. But Lost everything on E:\ drive as it wasn't been imaged. Is this data totally gone or is there a way 2 recover the data back?

It's unlikely you'll get anything back, you could try runtime's RAID Reconstructor:

Better prospects would be to send all of the failed array's HD's (also those that were bad) to a data recovery agency like gillware's:

Must be having a senior moment, as this doesnt mean anything to me!

Did you leave them in your car and it was stolen? if so what were you doing?

Also that isn't a proper reason. Apart from that my answer was correct. Chances are very low that data can be recovered in RAID 5 with 2 disks gone bad.
