I got back everything.  The only thing I lost was $108 on the Drivewarrior which was completely useless.  Data Rescue 3 was worth every penny.

I'm sure the op thought he was backed-up with raid1, I made the same suggestion on Fredmiranda to him 2 days ago and he never responded. Hope going forward he realizes that raid is not a backup and  in the future uses a sensible backup strategy and dose not count on raid.  RAID OF ANY KIND IS NOT A BACK UP!

Great news Joe! The trouble is a lot of people swear by DW and don't realise it is not good for everything but tell you it is. Same as Data Rescue is only good for certain things and for your need was spot on.

One tip, avoid buying two drives at a time that are from the same batch as if it is a bad batch (and it does happen sometimes) your backup of the backup will most likely to go soon afterwards as well.
