view story

http://askubuntu.com – Hello this is my first foray into ubuntu, or any form of Linix for that matter, as well as my first attempt to ever recover a lost a raid, but I'm a fairly quick study. I have an 8TB WD Sharespace, four 2TB drives set up on Raid 5 with two "failed" (maybe not) drives. I'm desperate to recover my data. Aside from all the music and movies and games etc, all my photos and home videos of my children growing up are on this thing and I'm fairly desperate to recover them. Aside from preferring to do things myself I can't afford professional data recovery. I do not have back-up drives to copy my orig (HowTos)
