mac RAID0 recovery

Post by hornady » Mon Feb 23, 2009 9:15 pm

Hi All,
I need your help desperately...well that's why i'm here...:)

I have a 6-disk RAID0 in my intel MacPro.
The RAID is software, MacOSX 10.5.6.
5 disk is in a eSATA port multiplier enclosure + 1 disk inside the MacPro = 6 HDD RAID size is 6TB.

Yesterday a friend turn on the comp without turning on the eSATA enclosure, so the other RAID slice inside the MacPro is seen as unmounted.
She thought the harddrive is a new HDD, she initialized it and then erase it into a normal Journaled HDD.

I caught her while the comp is still formatting. So no file has been written to that HDD. But it's already formatted.

I immediately bought RStudio Mac. But following documentation seem unsuccessfull to me. I have created a virtual stripe set, dragged the HDDs, tried many combinations of order, also differrent block sizes, but the scan is not succesful.

How can i determine the correct order and block size?

Can somebody help me out on this?
I attached generated system info .scn file from RStudio. I dont know how to open it, yet here it is.

Many thanks for any kind help,
