PowerEdge Raid Failure
1. Data recovery help request

Are you located near Ontario?
There was a power outage yesterday after a fire near our WEB facilities there. We have a RAID 5 server there with 6 Western Digital disks, one TB each Apparently 2 disks failed. At first it was only one disk according to what the server administrator sent:
root@cl-t211-171cl ~]# tw_cli info c0

Unit UnitType Status %Cmpl Stripe Size(GB) Cache AVerify
u0 RAID-5 DEGRADED - 64K 4656.56 OFF OFF

Port Status Unit Size Blocks Serial
p0 ECC-ERROR u0 931.51 GB 1953525168 WD-WMATV2138776
p1 NOT-PRESENT - - - -
p2 OK u0 931.51 GB 1953525168 WD-WMATV2229014
p3 OK u0 931.51 GB 1953525168 WD-WMATV2272507
p4 OK u0 931.51 GB 1953525168 WD-WMATV2213367
p5 OK u0 931.51 GB 1953525168 WD-WMATV2244600
p6 NOT-PRESENT - - - -

Then after they tried to replace the disk apparently 2 disks are failing. We would like to get a quote to go there and try to recover as much information as possible. We are already getting a new server were we are putting the backups we had, but they are not current, so the information here is very important for us. Though the array is of 6 TB only about 1.5 was in use.
We are located in Mexico.

Thanks in advance
