RAID Recovery Helps You Recover Important Data Stored On Your Hard Drive

Computer & internet

RAID is the short form of Redundant Array of Independent Disks. Originally its full form was Redundant Array of inexpensive Disks. The technology combines multiple components of physical disk drive into one or more logical units for improvement in performance or data redundancy. Windows consider the whole RAID as a single disk. RAID level 0,1, 3 and 5 are implemented in hardware-based solutions.

Hardware-based RAID makes use of intelligent drive controller as well as a redundant disk drives array for protection against the data loss if the media fails. It also improves the performance of read/write operations. A disk array proves to be a good disk-storage solution for computers that are running database software.

How Can I Recover Data From RAID

In the past users had no choice but pay money to professional services for the RAID recovery services. There was no other way to recover data as a result of loss.

R-Studio is the best for hardware RAID recovery can help you get your data back. It detects as well as  treats valid hardware RAIDs as regular drives. Even if you have only drive images of a faulty RAID, it can help you to recover your data. The drives or their images that are necessary for the RAID to work should be working. The total number of drives depends on the layout of the RAID.

How Can You Create a Simple Virtual RAID 5

Let’s look at the parameters:

  • The number of disks should be three.
  • Block size should be 64kb.
  • The offset should be zero.
  • The objects in R-Studio should be: SCSI (3:0), SCSI (3:1), SCSI (3:2)
  • The block order should be Left Asynchronous (Continuous)

These parameter s are the most important to create the RAID so that you recover your files successfully. That’s why it is always a good idea to have a larger preview of the parameters to see if you have entered them correctly. A single or better a double verification is necessary to create a RAID.

How can You Create an Advanced Virtual RAID 5:

Let’s look at the parameters below:

  • The number of disks should be three.
  • The offset should be 64kb.
  • The block order should be custom.
  • Detail of Objects in R-Studio: disk manage files: Y:\Disk1.dsk, Y:\Disk2.dsk, Y:\Disk3.dsk
  • The block size should be 4KB

Use keyboard to enter the block order in the table on the Parents tab

How to use keyboard: Use arrow keys to navigate. Digit and P keys can be used to enter the block order.

How to use Mouse: By making a right-click on the cell, you can select the number or parity from the shortcut menu. In case of a large block table, use keyboard to enter the digits.

R-Studio will correct you: If you have entered wrong digits, R-Studio will rectify you by putting red color in the cell. Navigate to the cell and enter the correct value. Delete key will clear the cell. You can correct your mistake.

After that click on the apply button.
