Default Data recovery form a Raid

Hi
My First post

I have ( should really say HAd ) a raid with 4 40gb drives the raid was setup to strip/mirror ( 1 pair stripping other pair mirroring )

Unfortunatly 3 of the drivers all decided to fail today, 1 had the click of death the other 2 just stoped being regonised by the motherboard.

I have got the machine back up and running with new drives but had to start from scratch, What i need to know is, is there any way of recovering any of the data on the drives.

One of the drives is ok but as it's part of a pair windows can read the data on it

any help would be gratefull
Cheers

if these are IDE drives remove the ones known to be faulty from the cables as they may be interfering. it may be that not all 3 are faulty if it is an IDE RAID. however from what i know if 3/4 disks in a RAID 0+1 array die you can not recover data.
