ok, i have (had) a raid 5 array on an adaptec 2410sa card. the card has gone down, and keeps randomly dropping channels. i've done a bit of googeling and it is not a unique problem. it seems the card is dead. so i bought an identical replacement card to migrate the array onto. trouble is, the array is degraded because of the dropped channels issue, and the new card sees no array at all.
is there a way to save the array settings to the new card and rebuild the array on there or is there a data recovery utility which might save my data and my neck?
adaptec have been no help at all - the original card is an oem, so they aren't interested, which is nice. i would really appreciate some help in recovering my array, and the 200 gb data i can't get to at the moment.
