RAID Data Recovery

Widely considered to be one of the safest and most reliable data storage options, a RAID data system will usually leave you with no problems at all when it comes to data loss and recovery. When it comes to securing your data, a wise choice is to install a RAID data system in your personal or professional devices. This ensures that you have done all you can when it comes to data security.

However, there are exceptions to every rule and no device is completely guaranteed to work perfectly at every given time.

Because a RAID system works differently than many other devices and computer hard drives, even an individual who is familiar with basic device functionality should not attempt to restore a RAID device on their own without prior experience. A RAID data system should only be handled by someone who is trained in specifically these systems.

At Data Recovery 47, we service RAID data loss from:

-Water damage

-Software damage

-Media surface contamination

-Electric source issues

-Power failure

-Device overheating

-RAID internal corruption

-Physical damage, such as dropping

Understanding RAID Data Storage

A data storage system that uses multiple disks when storing data, a RAID system is able to act as a backup storage system for itself. RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks and it was created in order to help solve the problem of data loss. By saving each piece of information within itself multiple times, each unit of data is already backed up as it is entered with a RAID system in place.

RAID systems are also comparatively fast and work efficiently compared to an outside data storage system of similar data storage capability. Because it works cohesively within itself as one device, it is able to perform significantly better than comparable outside storage systems.

To understand a RAID device, begin by looking at the number within the title. The numbers will start at 0 and continue up from there. The higher the number, the greater the memory storage. A higher number will naturally ensure a greater level of protection from data loss.

While it may seem that a RAID system is doomed for failure because all of the data is backed up within a single device, they were actually designed to prevent this exact such scenario. With a fail-safe mechanism built internally, the RAID system will disconnect from a failed device to ensure that the rest of the devices stay secure and the data is thus protected. However, it is still possible for a malfunction to occur and the entire device to fail.

Should you experience data loss even with a RAID system in place, reach out to a professional who understands RAID technology and can help restore your data. A Data Recovery 47 specialist is standing by the line for your call today.
