    help recovering lost harddrive due to deleted partition pl

    hi ive made a balls up and hoping sum1 can advise the best recovery method.
    i have a server with win8 on a 360gb sata drive with 4 1.5TB drives as storage
    which i had joined under win8 to be seen as one drive.
    The system had been slugish lately so was going to replace the 360gb with a ssd
    which i had used b4 on my laptop, so when i had it connected and started to install
    i seen 5.8 drive and ssd 12ogb drive and a few small partitions i deleted main partion
    on ssd and few other small partition which i thought was on the SSD but one was
    related to the storage drives and they are all screwed up now and when i connect the
    original win8 os harddrive it doesnt boot anymore.
    my question is whats the best way to proceed to save all the data on the hard drives
    nothing was formated on theses drives.
    thanks for any advice
