RAID Recovery

[divider]

RAID is an acronym that stands for redundant array of independent disks. RAIDs are method of using multiple hard drives to achieve what one hard drive is normally incapable of doing on its own. RAID’s are typically used for one of the following reasons, redundancy and failover or speed.

RAID’s can consist of nearly any type of hard drive, run with most modern operating systems and while they are generally used for redundancy they are prone to the same types of failures as any single hard drive. No matter which type of RAID you have, PROBE Data Solutions can help recover your valuable data.

  • RAID 0 – Striped – Best performance but also greatest risk of data loss.
  • RAID 1 – Mirrored – At least two drives, identical data is written to all drives.
  • RAID 2 – Bit-level striping with dedicated Hamming-code parity – Not very common
  • RAID 3 – Byte-level striping with dedicated parity – Not very common
  • RAID 4 – Block-level striping with dedicated parity – Not very common
  • RAID 5 – Block-level striping with distributed parity – One of the most common
  • RAID 6 – Block-level striping with double distributed parity – Becoming more common
  • RAID 10 – Stripe of mirrors – Excellent speed and redundancy
