RAID Data Recovery
RAID data recovery is internationally regarded as one of the most intricate and challenging types of data recovery. This is primarily because of the very nature of RAID systems, which offer unparalleled benefits that are sometimes offset by the difficulty of RAID data recovery in the event that your system becomes damaged or inaccessible. Our engineers have successfully completed thousands of RAID data recovery projects and are considered among the most competent in the world.
Platinum Data Recovery offers one of the most comprehensive RAID data recovery solutions in the industry, encompassing the entire spread of RAID systems
RAID Types We Recover
RAID 0: Mainly used in external hard drives to get fast read/write speed.
RAID 1: Exact copy or mirror of two disks. Decreased write performance.
RAID 5 and 6: Redundant array of independent disks configuration that uses disk striping with parity.
RAID 10/50/60: Combination of different RAIDs for speed and data protection.
Database Data Recovery: RAID data recovery often requires MYSQL data recovery and database data recovery and management. We are experts at understanding the multi-layered RAID systems and their operating components and programs.
We specialize in RAID data recovery and possess comprehensive tools and resources in order to do so. Our RAID data recovery services have an exceptionally high success rate, leading to our reputation as one of the best data recovery companies in the world. Understanding why your RAID configuration hard drives or SSD might fail is critical to developing a strategy for data recovery and extraction in the event that your system or hardware fails.
When is RAID Data Recovery Needed?
The following are a number of reasons that you might experience data loss in your RAID configured system:
- Multiple hard drives/ssd failure, drives are in offline mode
- Intermittent failure resulting in configuration corruption
- RAID volumes or arrays won’t mount
- Configuration corruption or damage
- Addition of incompatible drives
- Software corruption/hardware conflicts
- RAID array/controller card failure
- Controller card set-up corruption
- RAID container crash
- Server won’t boot
- Server registry configuration lost
- Rebuild failure
- Damaged striping
RAID Data Recovery Services
RAID, Redundant Array of Independent Disks, combines multiple physical disk drives into a single logical unit. These disks together form a single system that works by distributing data across individual small disks. The disks can be combined into the array in different ways which are known as RAID levels. By combining the capabilities and storage capacities of several disks and putting them in a single array, RAID offers larger storage capacity and better data safety. RAID offers a high level of performance, data security, and can even tolerate breakdowns. But RAID arrays are still susceptible to data loss. It is a redundant way to store data and has fault tolerance to survive one or many disk failures. However, due to the nature of the storage drives, system failure often occurs.
Unexpected RAID failures cause stress and downtime for your business. RAID server may breakdown due to power surges, malfunctions in the RAID controller, or malicious software. When data stored on the RAID server goes missing, enterprises need a quick solution to get back to normal business operations. If you’ve lost your data, the Platinum Data Recovery team can come to your rescue. We specialize in RAID Data Recovery Services and provide the highest chances of recovering data from crashed & failed RAID Server. As a Certified RAID data recovery company, we have a dedicated RAID Recovery Laboratory. Our secure in-lab recovery operations guarantee the safety of your hardware, as well as maintain the privacy of data. We have a Cleanroom that limits the number of dust particles to offer the best possible environment for data recovery.
RAID systems are built to withstand individual drive failure. However, if a RAID is running in a degraded state, it increases the workload of the remaining drives and that may lead to additional drive failures. At Platinum Data Recovery, we understand that each RAID data recovery is unique. Our team is qualified to recover lost data from any RAID configuration. Our certified engineers have performed hundreds of successful recoveries on a wide range of hardware from various manufacturers. No matter what type of array, we have the highest success rate in the industry to ensure successful RAID data recovery.
Pros & Cons of RAID Server
RAID provides a way of storing the data in different places on multiple hard disks. There are several different levels of RAID, and each has its own place and purpose. RAID is commonly used by small- to large-sized businesses for data protection purposes. It is popularly used because this system combines multiple hard disks to form one or more logical units. The RAID technology provides redundancy, reliability, and scalability. This system ensures that if one hard disk drive fails, RAID enables you to keep accessing your data by adding redundancy. The multiple disks in the RAID server provide fault tolerance, as well as increase the storage capacity of the system. Data is distributed across multiple disks as per the RAID levels such as RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 2, RAID 3, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 10, RAID 50 and RAID 60.
Using RAID has some advantages, as well as disadvantages. One of the biggest benefits of using RAID is fault-tolerance which is the ability to survive one or more disk failures. This system uses either disk mirroring or disk striping to protect data. RAID provides a reliable storage solution in environments where data accessibility is critical, and fault tolerance is essential. However, there are also some disadvantages of using RAID depending on the RAID level you are using. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of using RAID.
- Advantages of RAID
- Higher Data Security
- Simultaneous Reading and Writing of Data
- Increased Availability and Superior Performance
- Frequent Checks for Any Possible System Crash
- Ensures Data Reliability
- Fault Tolerance
- Disadvantages of RAID
- Data Recovery can be Complex
- Not Complete Protection of Data
- Improper use may slow down the system performance
- Data striping makes it difficult to locate a single data file on specific physical drive
Frequently Asked Questions

What does the term “RAID” stand for?
The term RAID is an acronym for a “Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks” or a “Redundant Array of Independent Disks”. A RAID system found in high-end server applications consists of multiple disk drives that are grouped. RAID storage systems are used to provide data mirroring, striping and/or redundancy.
How many different levels of RAID are there?
The RAID levels are RAID 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10 (or RAID 1+0), 50 (or RAID 5+0), 60 (or RAID 6+0) 100 (or RAID 10+0). All these RAID levels represent different configurations and have different speed and fault tolerance.
Is it possible to recover files from accidentally re-formatted RAID volume(s)?
In most cases of data loss, it is possible to retrieve lost files. However, the chances and process of recovering files depend on how the volume was re-formatted and what action was taken after. At Platinum Data Recovery, we have expertise and tools to recover lost data from all RAID systems.
Can data be recovered if multiple drives fail in a RAID volume all at once?
Yes, we can recover data in this case. Our team will temporarily repair the drive(s) to make a clone from it. Once we have all drives cloned, we will virtually match the controller and assemble the RAID.
