Data recovery from deleted files

so we had a disaster at an office. someone deleted tb's of data from a storage array.
becuase the backup was able to run that night, it deleted all the files off the backup.
I was able to stop any writes the the drive. but it was all deleted.
i ran several undelete tools to try to recover the files.
one worked 100% but was really slow. that was undelete 2009
one worked not 100% but all the files that it did restore worked 100% and it was fast, this was getdataback. the problem with getdataback is it could not scan the whole raid, our raid was too big for their software and after going back and forth with their tech support they said their software could not scan our large array.

do you guys have any recommendations on restoring those files?

try recovermyfiles
I tried it to recover formatted harddrives and it worked
Try Easeus Data Recovery Wizard: http://www.easeus.com/datarecoverywizard/
It supports raid and an 'unlimited' number of recovered files, according to its makers.

If it, too, should have a problem with the sheer amount of your lost files, there is a "professional" version of this same software to try.
All of those products, including Easeus will crap out on you if you have insufficient RAM.  So you need to eliminate any product that isn't a 64-bit executable because they have constraints on how much stack & virtual memory they can address.

Also, you need to be running a 64-bit  version of windows, and plenty of RAM,  32-64GB or more may be required.  
I've never had a configuration too big for 64-bit UFS Explorer "professional" edition, as long as I had enough RAM.
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
