My supervisor replaced a failing drive we had in our RAID 5 array on our PE2900 xmas eve,.  I come in today and go to browse the network shares we have for that array and all folders are empty but the free/available space is the same as it was prior to replacing the bad drive, just now no data, but the drive we replaced now has an orange LED.  I cannot restart the server for a few hours as people are using one of the VMs that's hosted in Hyper-V.

Any idea how to fix this?  I've never seen this before.  It's a PERC 6/i controller.
