DATA RECOVERY RAID
RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks means it is a group of hard drives that reduce the chance of data loss by working together. RAID provides additional processing speed and is designed to provide duplication of your files so that there were less chances of information loss.
It can hold business databases and consumer libraries (includes movies, music and pictures). When you are looking for a RAID data recovery service it is essential to find solution from the technical expertise and with the tools required to restore the data. It is wise to access the professional to access the damage and get you the solution because if you experience a catastrophic event (like fire or flood, etc) and you find yourself with a RAID that has damage your data.
And once you perform any function to fix the problem on your own by pressing too many buttons and try to repair the hardware your own there’s no way of going back and you might lost your data permanently.
Consider the security measures that company employs to protect your data instead of doing it correct on your own. Make sure company follow the ISO standard with number 5 of rating that rates clean rooms based on the dust particles per volume of air and they should have up-to-date software and tools for best chance of data recovery otherwise it could cause further damage to your hardware.
Recovery service should maintain a secure and private environment and this include around the clock security, locked cleaned rooms, monitoring and background tested employee. Further company should be SSAE 16 certified (third party standard) which checks company security and privacy.
RAID 1 Data Recovery
It is established in level 1, mirrored (means the information written to one disk is written to another disk making clone of the original hard drive) and drive set.
It is a set of disk drives that are configured for data to be written to two volumes simultaneously as this configuration provides complete redundancy during drive failure.
People mistakenly assume that they are fully protected against data loss with a RAID 1 volume, but nothing could be further from the truth as RAID 1 volume provides only a measure of protection against data loss but it does not eliminate regular backup of critical data need.
RAID 10 Data Recovery
RAID 10 (combination of RAID 1+ RAID 0) uses a minimum of four drives and additional drives in even numbers must be added. In four drives a pair is first mirrored as in a RAID 1 and striped as in RAID 0.
Total storage capacity is calculated by summing the storage capacity of all the drives in the array and dividing in half. RAID 10 is very expensive as it uses only half of the total capacity of all the drives and it does offer increased performance over some of the other RAID levels due to the striping in it.
The failure of one or more drives is tolerable as long as there is only one failure per each mirrored pair since mirroring occurs in RAID 10. It is used in high performance servers and in many NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices.
- Download and install RAID Recovery software ReclaiMe Free to start procedure.
- Then select all available RAID10 member disks to continue.
- Click RAID buttons and select Start RAID10.
- Once you completed RAID recovery, select one of the output options depending on what you want to get:-
- Click Run ReclaiMe to recover data button if you want to recover data files by files from the RAID10 array.
- Click Save layout to file (RAID XML) button to save the recovered array parameters in order to recover data later.
- See at the Use with other data recovery software section if you want to extract data using some other data recovery software [Note:- Instructions are provided only for the software which is capable of recovering data from RAIDs]. Otherwise, first you need to click Create the array image file and then feed it to data recovery software.
- You can try to get access to the array data if sure about the file system on the RAID10 array that it is not damaged. Click on Write array to disk to do this. However, before accessing the data you might have to reconstruct the partition table in some cases.
What to do at time of RAID 10 failure
- Immediately turn off your RAID 10 device.
- Document the events that occured causing RAID 10 failure.
- Contact expertise immediately like ReWave.
Causes of failure
Bad sector, corrupt data and files and controller, damaged and deleted files, missing partitions, overwritten files, RAID 10 crashed, backup unsuccessful, broken, disk and drive failure, power surge and failure, etc.
