How about a section in this forum dedicated to data recovery topics.  It's why many of us will have invested in this product, and it's always a little bit stressful when you go through it "for real" no matter how many times you've tested failure scenarios.

I think we could build up a good body of advice, best practice (to ultimately end up on WIKI) and, importantly, SUCCESSES!

I just recovered an 80% full 500gb drive that failed after a power cut.  Process was painless, easy and very fast.

Added a poll.
I don't mind the idea, but splitting topics can sometimes create more confusion than help.
Tips on recovery will depend on whether you are on Linux vs Windows and whether you are using Snapshot RAID vs RT RAID.
