warranty? are all three disks bad?

Kind of left us with a little to go off of. If you're under warranty, call them right away to get the machine up. If it's not in warranty, well, that's not good - i hope you don't run a business without them under warranty if you can really help it. (sometimes management just won't pony up the money but it is your responsibility to tell them why they should and the risks)

Is the machine working but the hard drives not posting? If the drives just stopped working, maybe it's the backplane that they sit on and not that actual data. If two of the three drives are still working, you're okay, that's why you have RAID 5.

Grab another 370 and connect these drives to that would be the easiest, fastest and cheapest solution here.

If you don't have a Backup this would be the best way forward here if you are unwilling to send these drives to a Data Recovery Company.

Where used in a RAID Array you need to send them off to a Data Recovery House who can deal with RAID Arrays. There currently is no software solution to recovering the data off these disc's.
