The absence of any fault tolerance mechanism makes data loss a serious situation in a RAID 0 setup. However, don't despair - there is an excellent chance that your critical data can still be recovered. We have performed countless successful RAID 0 recovery operations, and you, too, can get the second chance you need.

  • We specialize in performing RAID 0 recovery for all major hardware manufacturers and platforms.
  • With more than 10 years of professional experience and specialized equipment, you can rest assured that we have the best chance of recovering your valuable data.

RAID 0 Data Recovery

RAID 0 is a popular option for those who want crave the ultimate in performance. They can be configured to work with any number of hard disks and are used in applications where I/O bandwidth is the critical factor. However, RAID 0 does not involve the use of redundancy, which means that the risk of data loss is perhaps the highest of any RAID level. A single disk failure can take down the entire array.

We have specialized tools and techniques that allow us to excel in RAID 0 data recovery. Our data recovery experts work around the clock to recover your critical data. We treat server and RAID recovery jobs as high priority cases. We realize the importance that these platforms tend to have, and many businesses depend on their servers as they are an integral part of their operation.

We are proud to be the data recovery service of choice for many IT professionals and businesses. As one of the most common operations that we perform, RAID 0 data recovery is at the core of our expertise.

RAID 0 Data Loss

Due to the lack of fault tolerance as well as the fragmented nature of the storage scheme, the failure of any one drive in the array will result in the failure of the entire array. Data recovery is often possible, depending on the nature of the damage, but the lack of redundancy may make recovery more difficult.

Some common causes of RAID 0 data loss are:

  • RAID Controller Failure
  • Lost, Damaged, or Corrupted RAID Array Configuration
  • Accidental Formatting
  • Intermittent Drive Failure
  • Incorrect Drive Marking
  • Rebuild Errors
  • Addition of an Incompatible Drive
  • Hardware Conflict

What to Do If Your RAID 0 Array Fails?

  • Do not reboot: Simply power down the server/computer and the array. Rebooting can cause serious damage when a RAID array fails.

  • If you suspect mechanical failure, power down the array immediately: If a drive is making an unusual noise, such as clicking or grinding, power it off as soon as possible. Continuing to run a physically failed drive can cause irreparable damage to the platters where data is stored.

  • Do not run defragment or volume repair utilities on suspected failed drives: Utilities such as chkdsk, scandisk, and fsck are generally not intended for RAID repair. They are designed to solve very specific problems relating to the filesystem, and unless you are sure you have these problems, you should avoid running them at all costs. These operations involve moving and writing a lot of data, which can make the damage far worse.

    • Furthermore, the kinds of problems that these utilities are meant to fix can often exhibit themselves in cases where the actual cause of the original problem is different. Running these operations can be very dangerous!

  • Label the positions of all drives in the RAID array and mark the one that failed: People panic when they lose data, and in attempting to fix the situation, it happens surprisingly often that they will mix up the order of the drives or forget which ones failed. This is understandable - data loss can be highly stressful. But it can make data recovery more difficult when we lack such information, so please take care to label your drives as soon as you can.

    • Please note that drives in a RAID array are numbered starting from 0.

  • Log the events you observed that led to the failure: This will provide valuable information that will make the data recovery effort more likely to succeed.

    • Also please log all attempts you have made, if any, to remedy the problem and any consequences you observed.

  • Do not change the order of the drives in an array: When the situation is already dangerous, you run an extremely high risk of data loss if you alter the RAID configuration in any way.

  • Do not swap another disk into the array: This can also become catastrophic if done incorrectly. New disks have to be completely zeroed out before insertion, and it is crucial to follow the manufacturer's instructions when swapping. It is highly advisable not to perform this operation in any potential data loss scenario.

RAID 0 Recovery

Generally, data recovery from a RAID system is feasible, but the knowledge, time and resources that are required make RAID recovery the most technically demanding form of data recovery. RAID manufacturers differ vastly in their designs of the internal components and circuitry of their systems, and an in-depth knowledge of these designs is crucial for successful data recovery. But because manufacturers do not disclose this information, RAID recovery techniques require many years of development in order to determine which ones are the most effective.

Although the lack of redundancy tends to be a prohibitive factor in the recovery process, the likelihood of a successful RAID 0 recovery is still fairly good. Once we manage to extract a full image of all the data on the array, the RAID 0 recovery process becomes similar to that of a standard single-disk hard drive.

If the data cannot be recovered, we do not charge a recovery fee. We can recover data from all servers, home computers, direct-network RAID storage devices, NAS devices, SAN systems, and a wide variety of other storage environments. Our engineers have performed countless successful RAID recoveries over their two decades of combined experience.
