Default Help Deleted Raid 5

Struggling to type this as I feel sick sick sick!!!!!
In a moment of madness preparing to switch a Mac formatted Drive to Windows I deleted the Volume of my 11TB Raid 5. instead of the 1TB drive

Now it doesn't show except that it is there in Disc manager.
It seems it is on an LSI mega raid controller.
Is there any simple way to recover this?

Whet do you mean by "deleted"?

Deleted the data? Removed the partition? Destroyed the raid stripe on the controller? Etc.

For data recovery, I pretty much swear by UFS Explorer https://www.ufsexplorer.com/

I have successfully recovered stand alone drives and raids (even Linux and bsd mdadm raids) in ntfs, hfs+, ext3, ext4, and ufs file systems. Like any data recovery tool though, you need to have enough free space on a different drive to restore the data to. Then you can rebuild the raid and copy the data back.

There are also tools that can attempt to recover a partition in place, that has been removed, but I prefer the ufs explorer for the sake of safety, since it is not trying to modify the drive you have the problem with so there is no risk of further data loss from a failed attempt to rewrite partition information.

OK here is what I did to "delete" the Raid.
Disk Management/ select (wrong drive)- right click/delete volume.
This came about as I needed to format a previously Mac HFS Formatted drive.
Most of the 9GB that was on the 11TB raid is backed up and the two projects that are "live", have the latest project changes saved in the C drive back-up.
(How many users dont set that up? USER settings/Project File/BackUp)

I have looked at two pieces of software that suggest they recover from Raid5 as well as speaking to two Data recovery programmes. At present I am taking stock...in between crying and looking in the mirror and calling what I see very rude names!
If I manage to recover the data one way or another the next hurdle will be to reinstate the raid however that is done....but that's a million miles away at present.

Thank you for heads up on the software, just been reading the website. Stay safe.
David

There is a guy on this forum whose name is George Dame. He is my IT guy and is very knowledgeable. Give him a shout out. It can't hurt to try. Good luck.

Thanks for the heads up Bern and also to ajc and raptor for suggestions.
I downloaded the trial of https://www.ufsexplorer.com/ufs-expl...d-recovery.php and all files showed up and after buying the S/N they are happily copying across to a 12 TB external. No idea how long the recovery will take
As I understand it, because the Raid is on an LSI 9260 card the drive still showed up as one drive.

The next obstacle to overcome is getting the Raid to show up as a drive.
Do I just reformat? Screenshot of Disc Manager.
Stay safe all...and dont be as stupid as me!!!!!!

Correct, on the LSI controller point. The controller looks after the RAID functions and makes the array appear as if it is one drive as far as windows is concerned. Once you get the files copied off, you should be able to simply re-format/re-partition as NTFS and copy the files back on.

Recovery of the files will likely take a while though, as UFS explorer operates differently than simply copying files in windows, and will not necessarily make use of copy buffers to speed the process.

I used this a few years back on a Raid I deleted. It worked!

Cheers Bern. Yes it is slow. I reckon it will be a few days before everything is 100% restored. Just as well work has dried up.

Sat 28 Here is the Update:
8hours for ufs software to scan the Raid
16 hours later to copy files onto 12TB external
2mins to quick format the Raid on the LSI card
14 hours to copy data back...and all is now back to where I was before my complacent lack of concentration caused such a disaster.

Wow, what a story. As a regular user of Raid 5 your experience is of great interest. I have always been very nervous of using Raid 5, so I have a backup clone of all my data on a cheap external 6TB HD. But it's good to know all is not lost if a drive goes down. You must be greatly relieved. I have made a note of UFS Explorer. Seems to be worth every penny.

Stay safe!
