Quick question for my hardware-fu is weak. 

A friend of mine had hardware RAID set up in some form and then the 
controller went kapoof and despite the fact that the data was 
theoretically all still intact he claimed he was unable to retrieve it.

Does this sound feasible? And, if so, was there a way to mitigate it?
