Can you post the content of testdisk.log file after a RebuildBS of this partition ?

Ok, I ran RebuildBS under Intel, as it wasn't an option under EFI FPT. Below is the log file immediately following the command.

Have you been able to list your files?
Looks like, that you wrote your boot sector.

Yes - I can list my files (roughly half of them) just like before. I ran RebuildBS as requested by Christophe, so if that wrote my boot sector, I guess I did. I was willing to try anything, even though this partition was not my boot drive. And now I can't even boot, nor get to my bios unless I disconnect the 2 raid drives...so I avoided my computer for the weekend. :(

If you write a boot sector you can make your file system visible.
If there are any errors it might hang or doesn't start.
Please, use a LiveCD to have a try to start with your RAID.
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Livecd
For disks larger than 2.2 TB always GPT should be used.

Just try to boot from a LiveCD containing TestDisk.
If it works, please check your RAID should still 4 TB.
I'll need infos from Analyse about your partition table.
Also, don't change your partition table type to Intel.
Please copy the log.

Thanks for all your help, but I gave up and just formatted my drive. The LiveCD did not recognize my drive after several attempts and switching to GPT never was able to list my files. I was able to recover some files with PhotoRec, so at least I didn't lose everything.
