There are several reasons that cause the data loss of RAID drives. No matter what the reasons are, RAID recovery software will help get data back. Here are the common causes for data loss in a RAID array.
A single disk failure in the RAID 0 array will cause the whole data loss of the RAID 0 level and all the disks will quit working.
If more than 2 disks failed or are broken in a RAID array, it will damage the data on the whole array and cause data loss.
Any failure, like power off of a RAID controller will destroy the RAID array, causing all the files and disks unreadable.
Any server fault, like motherboard failure or SATA controller damage on a local RAID setup, will cause RAID array damage.
When a disk failed, it will get reconstructed. However, if the controller failed to rebuild the RAID array, data corruption caused.
RAID configuration error or server hardware error will cause RAID controller doesn’t know how to boost the OS, causing data loss.
Local or online RAID data recovery services always ask you to wait. As an emergency, it will take you 12-24 hours for RAID data recovery, let alone standard service takes 3-5 business data. With this RAID hard drive recovery software, you can perform the data recovery on RAID drives right away, with no waiting, and no risk for data overwritten issues. Just do the RAID data recovery whenever RAID hard disks failed.
RAID Drive Recovery software scan RAID disks, looking for recoverable files. You don’t have to pay for it until it shows you the found files and you learn the files are what you’re looking for. Preview before recovery. It fully guarantees the data are what you need.
Stripes data evenly to each disk. Single or multiple disk failures will cause RAID data loss. The RAID drive recovery will scan the fragments to collect and match the information to recover RAID 0 data.
The main disk performs the data reading, writing, transferring and other disks will create a mirror of the main disk. The RAID recovery software will recover data from RAID 1 when 2 or more disks fail simultaneously.
It divides the information into blocks and it has a parity function distributing blocks for each disk for fault tolerance. The RAID disk data recovery will recover files from RAID 5 when 2 of disks failed at the same time.
Each drive has 2 distributed parity blocks, which will reconstruct when a single drive failed. This RAID recovery tool comes with advanced technology to recover data from RAID 6 disks and the whole array.
RAID 10 array equals 2 RAID 0 and RAID 1 mirror. If 2 drives in the same mirrored pair failed, then data will be lost. The RAID data recovery will scan both the mirrored disks as well other disks to recover data.
To increase the RAID Data Recovery success rate, you should avoid the potential wrong practice when you face RAID disks failures and data loss. What You Must Do: shut down the system immediately when you hear abnormal noise or see the abnormal light.
Re-insert and force online RAID members
Try to rebuilt RAID
Try to reset RAID
Try to repair the file system by running CHKDSK or FSCK
Click the DOWNLOAD button to get the installation of the data recovery for the RAID drive on your computer. After then, install it on your PC. It works for all PC running on different Windows operating system versions, including the latest Windows 11 and most widely used Windows 10.
Launch the RAID disk recovery software. At the bottom left panel, you can see the "Go to Settings" option. By clicking it, you will be able to select file types to recover from RAID disks. Deselect unwanted file types and confirm the action.
Launch the RAID drive recovery software. From the main window, you can see all the hard disks connected to or the internal hard drive of the computer. Please select the hard disk for RAID and click the "Scan" button. After then, you can see the RAID recovery tool begins to scan for lost files from the RAID disk.
Since a RAID disk contains large numbers of files, then it will take longer for the RAID data recovery software to scan the drive. Wait patiently for the scanning process to finish if you want a complete view of the recoverable files. When it is finished, then you can see all files are sorted in the directory. Next, you can click the directory in the left panel and check the details for the found files on the right side.
After previewing the recoverable files found in the RAID disk, you can decide whether to get back them or not. If find them, just select them all and click "Recover" to save the RAID data to an external hard drive which you should prepare before doing the RAID data recovery. You know, RAID disk always contains large capacity since large storage is needed for RAID purposes.
RAID is a Redundant Array of Independent Disks. It is a data storage virtualization technology that combines multiple physical disk drives into one for data redundancy, improving the data writing, reading, and transfer performance.
A single drive in RAID 0 failed or damaged will cause all data loss of RAID 0 array, making it quite the task right away. Get the guide to learn how to recover single RAID 0 data.
Though it is time-consuming and large extra storage devices needed to back up RAID array data. It is worth it because it will make data secure. Check an easier way to backup RAID.
Single RAID 5 drive failure doesn’t matter much since it will not affect the RAID 5 array work. However, you should learn how to recover data when 2 drives fail in the RAID 5 array.
