Disk 0: C: operating system, D: data partition, E: recovery all is well with this.

Disk 1 no longer shows up in Disk Manager, there are 4 300G drives. Only thing noticable is one of the drives is predicting a failure I already replaced it and rebuilding the new drive. Doesn't make sense this would cause a partition to disappear.

How exactly is your setup? Do you have 1 or two RAID volumes? If it is only one Volume, you should also only see one disk in diskmanagement.

What was on disk 1? An image or was it part of raid 5?
Raid 5 however requires 4 x disks by itself?
So where does disk 1 come in?

Hi EE's, I haven't been able to get back on this server since posting. It's a PowerEdge running RAID5 and I'm not 100% sure in hind site all the details as I was troubleshooting as I came across what I felt was the problem as a missing partition.

Sorry this isn't much help awarding points to all for the quick response time, closing this and will reopen if/when I get access to the server again.
