A 1TB volume storing 600GB of data has disappeared on my myth 
server.  It was formatted with the XFS file system and was running on 
top of a six disk (each disk being 200GB) 1TB RAID5 array.  On boot, 
the volume does not exist and the RAID5 array is running with 5 out 6 
drives.  The 6th drive is visible but not formatted.  In the past, 
when you have 5 out 6 drives working, data integrity was 
maintained.  In this case, however, the volume just disappeared.  Any 
ideas on how to  recover my volume and its 600GB of data?
