Hi all,

I have three 1 TB drives on my Ubuntu machine that I was using in a RAID 5 array. I had 50 GB on each that I arranged in a logical partition that I used for the base installation. The other 950 GB I used for the RAID 5 array. Sadly, I managed to format the section that had the base installation. Silly me.

Now I want to get the data off the raid piece. What's the best way to do that? Is it to just reinstall the OS on the 150 GB logical partition? The RAID 5 will be fine as long as I tell it it is a RAID 5 array? This seems the only way though I'm nervous that I could lose the data on that piece.
