My client has a Dell PowerEdge 2600.

3 pairs of disks in RAID 1+0.

We copied the data from a volume, replaced a pair of drives for bigger drives (drives 4 and 5 in the array), copied the data back to the new (larger) volume.

The client is now saying some data is missing. It's been about a months, I are able to simply remove the new drives in 4 and 5, put the old drives back in, quickly access the data and find the files they are after (using Windows search with a date switch). After we have the data then pull drives 4 and 5, put back the new 4 and 5 and everything will be fine?

Win 2003 SBS.

Onsite now and would really appreciate some assistance.

Thank you guru's.
