I have been asked to assist with recovering important data from a server that has six drives in a RAID5 setup for a Windows 2003 Std server. One of the drives failed and during the rebuild they tried booting it into windows and it failed. Now on boot it says “A disk read error occured, hit ctrl + alt + del to restart”. The array says it is bootable but obviously I cannot get past that to recover data.
I also hate to say that the backups they were doing were going to drives that were not working :evil: so now this recovery is high priority (they didn’t even bother checking that backups were working) :(
