Logical Volume failure after disk failure in RAID 5 set

Hi experts

I have a DL580 server with direct attached storage in an external enclosure. I have 10 disks in the enclosure, 5 for logical volume 1 (Drive E:\) and 5 for logical volume 2 (Drive F:\), each running RAID 5. One disk failed in the logical volume 1 and it caused the whole logical volume to fail. (Windows can't see it anymore)

Now, is there a way to repair this logical volume without damaging the data on it?
(Drive F:\ is still intact)

And is there a slight possiblity that another disk might have failed without me picking it up (i.e flashing lights on the disk in the enclosure)

Thank you in advanced

Kind Regards

Cresswell

Re: Logical Volume failure after disk failure in RAID 5 set

The first thing to do is to get and ADU report, to see the state of the disks.
You can do it from the OS or booting with SmartStart CD.
Attach it here and let me take a look.
