I have run photorec on a raid hard drive. It recovered many files. It however as far as i can tell did not recover any files that had been in the my pictures folder there are many. I have all kinds of files from off the system folders such as internet files. Also i tried to run photorec a second time to just focus on the photos the second time. now when it runs it takes about two seconds and finds nothing.

Some raid configurations (like raid2) wite data to drives so that accessing the data is fast and each sequential bit is written to a differnt drive so that if you have 2 or more drives in the raid it will write a single file's data across all the drives. So in order to rebuild the file you would not be able to remove a single drive from the raid and rebuild the file from that single drive. Is that the case with your raid configuration?
