I have an issue with my Raid 5 array that is puzzling me. The PC crashed yesterday and after a reboot my raid 5 array was empty.

cat /proc/mdstat

Personalities : [raid6] [raid5] [raid4] [linear] [multipath] [raid0] [raid1] [raid10] 
md0 : active raid5 sdi1[3] sdd1[4] sda1[0] sdc1[2] sdb1[1]
5860545536 blocks super 1.2 level 5, 256k chunk, algorithm 2 [5/5] [UUUUU]

sudo mdadm --detail /dev/md0

df
/dev/md0       5858458624     44744 5858413880   1% /mnt/raid

Any help would be appreciated.

I am using Kubuntu 13.10

Added by edit; The xfs file system checked out OK using

sudo xfs_check /dev/md0

The top level of the file structure is still visible

ls /mnt/raid
library  library1  library2  lost+found

I had just finished restoring to another drive mounted on library1 which still contains the data on an ext4 file system.

Still totally puzzled where the data went.
