I have a server running Ubuntu which had a software RAID 5 array of 3 640 GB drives. For some reason when I set it up, I created the array, then partitioned it and installed the system on one partition. This seemed really dumb to me, so when I tried to add another drive to the array, I also tried to move the system to a separate drive. I failed and have not booted the machine since.
What I am looking for is someone to walk me through reconfiguring the server through IRC or IM. I believe the data should be recoverable, since I have not touched the drives since they were last configured as an array. If you help me rebuild the array and I can recover the data, I will pay you 50 BTC. If the data is unrecoverable, I will still pay you 25 BTC for helping me rebuild the array.
If there is any information necessary to determine if the job is worth while, let me know.
