Trashed disk drive using RAID, please help

    I did a very stupid thing today. I thought that I could mirror my hard
    drive (which I had installed everything onto in an unmirrored format)
    on the fly. However, when I enabled the Silicon Image 2112 controller
    for RAID on my AX4SPE Max I found that this wiped the format
    information off my drive. So I have a drive that (I'm sure) still
    physically contains all my data, but I can't reach it because there's
    no format information any more.

    If anyone has any ideas, software, pointers to a way to restore at
    least some of this information (in particular I'd really like to get a
    few documents that I saved on this disk and my mail folders back) I'd
    sure appreciate hearing from you.

    Try this app out, it's recovered data for me even from a damaged RAID 0
    array so I know it works. There's even a demo version so you can see how it
    works.
