Flaky DL380g2, can the HD data be saved??

I have a strange problem with my DL380. It is configured for NT40 (tse) and after the OS reported corruption of the \temp directory I tried a chkdsk /f only to have the unit not boot up. I have two drives sys and data. Is all that lost? I was able to take my sys drive, use smart start, create mirror, pop out mirror, place in working DL360 (w/W2k) drive contents of sys drive fine.

When I tried to place this drive back in the DL380 it stated there were no logical drives. I'm ready to panic now as the data logical drive has disappeared. As you can tell there is no recent back-up of this server. PLS help. Thanks

Did you have the drives mirrored before the mishap? And was it on an array controller? Start up the Array Controller Utility in smartstart and see what you have for arrays when you have the drive in there.
