    I`ve a scsi megaraid raid 5 array which has 2 failed drives. There are some files which i need since the last backup. Is there any utilities I could use through dos to try and recover these files?

    Nope, you lose. How did you manage to get two drives to fail simultaneously btw?

    More than 1 failed disk in a raid5 array and the whole array is toast.

    Physical recovery of one of the disks by a data recovery specialist is an option.

    Maybe look at raid reconstructer by get data back...

    but to be honest from all the theory ive ever been taught, seems like a lost cause


    Good luck!!!

    Re: Megaraid recovery

    did someone call?

    post up some details of how the drives sound etc and I can talk you through some tips to try before the huge cost of sending it off to a company like mine
