    checkdisk during raid reconstruction

    Brice

      Hello,

       

      my hard drive had a mechanical failure during raid reconstruction.

       

      Using Intel matrix storage manager, it took 2 weeks to construct the RAID 5 logical drive from the disk with original data.

       

      This disk crashed after 10 days and the computer rebooted and initiated a checkdisk.

       

      intel manager poped up saying the logical RAID 5 drive needed to resync

       

      When i opend the drive the main folder was empty.

       

      I am going to ask professional services to recover my data, however i m wondering if i need to pay full price for data recovery on the RAID 5 array or just on the faulty drive ?

       

      My question being, does Intel manager rewrites data on the original disk during RAID 5 creation ?

       

      when i load the 2 spare disks it fails to load the logical drive.

       

      Thanks for your opinion.

       

      Regards,

       

      Brice.
