RAID systems are a configuration of multiple disks that present themselves as a single storage medium, and like all mechanical devices can break down. RAID controller failure is a common problem, which can cause booting problems. Most RAID servers rely on a single controller to direct the array's options, which can occasionally fail. Individual partition disks in the RAID can become corrupted and stop working, causing the partition to become unusable, and if a RAID volume isn't rebuilt correctly, there can be problems accessing the data.
When you experience a RAID failure it's important first and foremost to turn off the array immediately. The more you run the array in a degraded state, the less chance there is of recovering data. When a drive in a RAID fails, the data on the failed drive must be rebuilt from the parity data on the remaining, active drives. All of our work is carried out in class 100 clean rooms to ensure an environment free of contaminants.
Our specialist RAID data recovery team operate 24:7:365 reconstructing corrupted arrays with the latest technology. They can identify and rebuild all RAID configuration including RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 1E, 4, 5, 5R, 6 JBOD...and more. We also support all RAID controllers, RAID enabled motherboards, software RAIDs, dynamic disks, virtual machines and VMWare.
