We actually saved it on a RAID5 system. Unfortunately, two drives died at the same time.
Believe it or not, this actually often happens. It happened to me with my DVD collection and I lost 300 DVDs that I still have yet to re-rip. It's just like light bulbs that are from the same batch failing around the same time. And particularly if they are Seagate drives! RAID is a reliability solution, not a back-up one. May I suggest you back-up things like this to one of the many Cloud back-up services/offerings.
