Ok. Thanks. That makes sense as I thought there was only about 5TB of space instead of the 7TB it was reporting with Raid 5, but looking at the data initially pointed to raid 5 and re-claim me felt it was that as well. Is there any hopes in recovering it? How do I go about recovering the data? Thanks for all your help.

I tried to find out the RAID layout for synology hybrid RAIDs, but actually found not much useful information.
What is Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR)
I cannot right now tell you how to create such a structure, I'll try to think it over.

Thanks for all your help. I was thankfully able to recover it by using Reclaim-Me and R-Studio to detect and verify the raid parameters needed. I then used Raise Data Recovery for Ext2/3/4 with the raid plugin. Specifying the parameters for it allowed the data to be pulled off. Again, thanks for the help.
