Now Data experts are highly specialized when it comes to RAID 0 Data Recovery. Our data recovery professionals have successfully retrieved data from huge RAID systems as a vital part of our Data recovery service. Recovering data from this array configuration can be particularly tricky, due to the lack of redundancy with the configuration and the data being stripped. Don’t worry! Contact Now Data Recovery regarding your Raid 0 data loss or hard drive failure.
RAID 0 is known as the striped set without parity, since it bases on striping technique. Raid 0 is one of the most popular disk arrays. This is a non-redundant array and it is created mainly to increase system performance because N-disks array provides N times read and write speed improvement as compared to a single disk and it can be easily created using either controller (Hardware RAID 0) or operating system (Software RAID 0).
RAID 0 configuration and recovery includes:
- Number of member disks if any changes has been made in the array.
- Disk order, along with the position of the disk in the array and how they are modified or configured.
- Configuration changes in the disks and any damages in the drive array.
Data Recovery in RAID 0 is possible only when all the member disks are available. In case any one of member disk failure occur in your RAID, first the failed disk needs to be imaged and only then using our proprietary Data recovery equipment, we work on RAID 0 recovery. Sometimes single disk failure destroys the entire Raid array, since the data is broken into stripes. The number of fragments is determined by the number of disks in the server. The stripes are written to their respective disks simultaneously (in theory, but it depends on what kind of RAID controller and disk drives used) on the same sectors. This allows smaller sections of the entire chunk of data to be read off the drive in parallel, giving this type of arrangement some bandwidth advantage. More disks in the array mean higher bandwidth, but also makes gives you greater risk of data loss.
RAID 0 Failure Data Recovery
Some of the failure cases which we work for data recovery from Raid 0 array are:
- Operator / Human errors.
- RAID Controller or Software failures.
- Failure of one or several RAID 0 member disks.
- Many other common reasons for the failure of standard hard disks, such as logical, as well as firmware issues or improper user handling and even viruses.
- Bad sectors on one drive, this can harm the entire array
- PCB / Circuit board level damages
- Failing R/W heads on hard drives.
- Fire / Water damaged server
With these failures, it is possible to recover data from RAID 0. Firstly, the array configuration needs to be determined.
RAID 0 is mostly used in many different types of servers, external hard drives, NAS units, Snap Servers, and in certain desktop computers. For RAID Data Extraction and Recovery we require all disks from the array, and unmodified. Hard drives including PATA, SATA, SAS, SCSI / Scuzzy, SSD and SSHD drives used in RAID 0 configuration are recoverable from our expert team.
Why “Now Data Recovery” for RAID 0 Data Recovery Services
Hard drive failure and controller level failures are the main reasons for RAID 0 data loss. In fact, data loss from RAID 0 hard drive may even be due to many other reasons, in which situation one needs to contact Data Recovery experts who understand the configuration and are well equipped with data recovery tools to recover the same. Our Raid Data Recovery experts help in recovering Corporate and Business data like documents, emails, database, SQL, MS-Access etc., when the RAID 0 hard drive is corrupted / damaged. Data loss could even be due to other reasons like deletion, formatting, virus, human error like changing the drive slot and more.
Recovery is possible from any operating systems like Windows OS including Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, 2005, 2008R2, 2012, 2014, 2016 etc., Linux OS like RedHat and Fedora. RAID recovery is possible even from NAS drives with XFS, UFS, ISO and others, SAN and DAS Units, irrespective of the failure or operating system it is on.
The damaged RAID drives to be maintained in the same condition as original. Either the disk interchange or any kind of activity on the drives will lead to further damages.
