My Drobo RAID drive was accidentally reformatted by USB duplicating software and now shows as an 8 gig USB. But there are 17TB still locked away. Data recovery programs are having trouble because of the way a RAID drive works. Anyone know how I can get back my 17TB of .mov files intact? And don't just direct me to a data recovery program - I need RAID-specific info, please!

Since I am a fan of EaseUS products, I recommend the following app:
