  1. Data Recovery

    I have a RAID 5 x IBM 200GB array with huge microstation files on it. I wanted to add another drive as one drive was clicking and was in fear of

    a crash amid rendering process. I attempted to add an extra drive, I added the additional drive to RAID 5

    array, gone through the setup and set the controller to reconfigure the current RAID 5 array to house the extra drive. Then controller crashed and

    the reconfiguration failed. Is there any chance to extract the data on the current array by reinitialize the RAID array and copy the data back, without restating the

    reconfiguration process. I desperately need any assistance here.
