Unhappy data recovering ???


After running "fsck -y" command on one of our raid disks (with ext3 file system)
we have found that some files disappeared (they are not seen in the directories
where they have been before). The data are extremely important and contain
a lot of programs, scripts for some analysis and very hard to recover by hands.
Is there any way, any tool that would allow to recover the data?

Is this striped RAID? I'm no expert on disk recovery, but it's extremely difficult to recover lost data from ext3. Using striped RAID will make things well-nigh impossible, I should think.

To state the obvious: you should always back up important data!
