    This morning we encountered a failure in our Raid-5 array and the server won't boot. Our datacenter told us the array and the disks need to be replaced as they are damaged.

    I'm looking for someone who can help me to get some backups out from this server.

    The server uses a Adaptec hardware RAID controller which comes with an tool I don't have a clue to use.

    Please feel free to PM if you can help. Of course we pay for the help we can get.

    Many regards

    R1Soft is the most useful backup software in such cases to restore the server. It backup the data per block and restore in same way on destination server.
