Just got a RAID 5 server this evening from a company that had a brown out and a tripplite UPS fried 2 of the 4 hard drives because it obviously mismanaged the power.

The kicker? Their backups only go until 1/30/04

I tried everything. everything software related for OS repair/recovery does not work, 3 HD + 1 new didn't work, rebuilding array, repositioning physical drives, new RAID / SCSI manager, Dell utility, SCSI utility, Using onboard RAID with same array numbering, second server with ident array, etc....

Has anyone used a service to recover data that would be familiar with a RAID5 array?

TIA!

Ontrack (site is ontrack.com) is a long-established company that can handle anything. Not cheap, but good.
