Netware's been dead for years really, though there's a lot of old-timers like myself who fondly remember it. You may find some disk recovery companies about that will give it a go, best just google in your local area for 'data recovery' and call them up.

That said I'd be paying more attention to your backups (you make and test them right?) as even if you can find a data recovery company who will try to help they could be weeks getting your data back.

Come back to us if you have further questions, good luck.
