Windows 7: Recovering data from a spanned volume

Recovering data from a spanned volume

Help!

I had three 2TB drive spanned together into a single volume for all my media files. I had the hose on my liquid cooler break and dump all the coolant on one of the drives. It, obviously, is toast.

Now, I would like to get the data of the remaining two.

I have run two different recovery software suites (Easeus and File Scavenger) on them and only find about 1TB of data.

Is there any other way or did I really lose 4 TB of data?

Thanks!

Wow, This was posted a long time ago. I think you may have already solved your problem, but Spanned volumes take the first disk, fill it and moves on to the next disk. For example:
If the 2TB drive that got trashed was the first, well you're ****ed.
If it was second, and no more than the drives capacity was full, you're ok.
If it was 3rd and untouched, you are good to go.
Word of advice: DO NOT FORMAT
