RAID 0 Recovery
RAID 0 configuration also known as a striped array is where the data is striped or equally spread in sequence around each of the disks in the array. RAID 0 volumes are configured without any redundancy, so if any disk in the array fails then the entire array becomes inaccessible. RAID 0 is normally chosen when there is the need for fast read write access typically employed in a file server.
The risk of a RAID 0 disk failing is no more than a disk failing in any other RAID configuration. The only real problem is that there is no redundancy in a striped array. This means that when a RAID 0 disk fails you are left with data on the remaining disks but with a missing part that is lost in the failed disk.
Our RAID 0 recovery service can still recover the data from your RAID 0 array and depending on the number of disks in the array and the size and type of files stored in the array the results can be very good. Recovering data from RAID 0 array requires expertise, understanding of the stripe size and RAID disk sequences. Once the sequencing and stripe size are confirmed the array can be de-raided for recovery.
DiskEng RAID 0 data recovery is carried out using our strict RAID recovery procedures. This requires each RAID disk in the array to be imaged onto our secure servers for data preservation and integrity. The images are then processed as virtual disks through our powerful RAID recovery software tools. This allows our data recovery specialists to create a virtual RAID 0 volume from which your data is recovered. RAID 0 arrays can fail for many reasons, below are a few of the common causes of RAID 0 failure to look out for if you are using a RAID 0 volume;
