I don't mean this to seem glib, because it really, really, really sucks to lose data (I have), but this is an excellent example of why RAID is not a backup.

RAID can protect you from hardware failure of HDD(s). It does not protect you from (among other risks) file system corruption, accidental deletion, or in this case, accidental reformatting of the filesystem. I know no one in this thread claimed otherwise, but for any future readers, I think the scenario witnessed in this thread can be instructive.

Best,
Andy
