RAID 5 Data Recovery
There are many different RAID configurations, but one of the most popular is RAID 5. This setup uses multiple disks to create a striped array, with parity data distributed across all of the disks. If one disk fails, the data can be rebuilt using the parity information. However, if two disks fail, the data is for all intents and purposes lost. This makes RAID 5 a risky configuration for mission-critical data. But what if you need to recover data from a failed RAID 5 array? We are a professional data recovery service that can help you retrieve your lost files.
RAID array failures can come at any time, and when they do, we are here to help. A common failure is when 2 or more drives in the array fail and so the RAID array cannot rebuild itself.
We have the technology and the expertise to recover most data from all types of RAID array when they fail. RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 or 50 are all recoverable in most instances. You just need to remember:
WHEN A RAID FAILURE OCCURS, DO NOT TRY TO REBUILD IF YOU HAVE NO BACKUPS. STEP BACK, TURN OFF THE ARRAY AND CALL US IMMEDIATELY.
We have recovered from most RAID arrays that have arrived here, as long as they have not been played or tampered with after the failure.
Once a RAID shutdown has occurred, the more you try to rebuild it, the more chance you are overwriting the data.
IF 2 DRIVES HAVE FAILED, DO NOT PULL THEM OUT AND RESEAT THEM. If one drive failed before the second, then it may inadvertently write over your data with month old data from the first failed drive.
