    Accidentally disconnected 2 hard-drives on a 4-drive RAID5.

      I have a 4-drive RAID5 on a D975XBX board. This is my boot volume. The 4th drive failed and I accidentally disconnected the 3rd drive. When I saw my error, I reconnected the 3rd drive and disconnected the 4th. However, now the 3rd drive is shown as 'Unknown Disc' and the array is 'Failed'. I know the 3rd disk is fine... but the array no longer recognizes it. At this point I'm just trying to recover my data... I know I have 3 good drives with data (and 1 failed; which is recoverable for RAID5). Can anyone please offer any suggestions?
