Best Raid Recovery in Nairobi ( by East African Data Handlers Ltd )
RAID Data Recovery Proccess
What is Raid? by defination its “A redundant array of independent drives” (“RAID“) . The process of data recovery for the Raid drives is much more difficult than a single hard drive recovery and should only be attempted by a qualified specialist, like the Raid Recovery in Nairobi by our experts at East African Data Handlers. RAID manufacturers set up the internal controls of their arrays in very different configurations. One thing that is certain is that the RAID configuration is most likely proprietary, hence is never disclosed to or shared with other data recovery companies. That’s why RAID data recovery engineers must have years of experience and be able to write recovery programs for each separate RAID data recovery operation.
Types of Raids
On most situations you will be using one of the following four levels of RAIDs.
What is the First step in Raid Data Recovery Process
Key Notes about Raid Data Recovery process
Each recovery procedure is unique to a particular RAID array. For example, a level 0 RAID (also known as a RAID 0 ) is the most challenging type of recovery because there is no fault tolerance and thus, no margin for error. A RAID 0 is made up of two drives, with the data striped in small sets across one or both of them. Since there is no parity in a RAID 0, the information that was saved on a failed drive is not replicated elsewhere, meaning that it will be difficult or impossible to recover.
How about the Rest of Raids?
On the other hand, a RAID 5 is made up of three or more drives and does offer parity data, so when one drive fails, a replacement drive can be used for recovery and the array can be rebuilt. However, if two drives of a RAID 5 fail, the recovery process becomes more difficult. If enough data can be saved from the malfunctioning drives, an experienced RAID data recovery engineer ( Like our Raid recovery in nairobi engineers ) can usually succeed, because the RAID parity is still available.
Other key Points about Raid
Each RAID data recovery is unique, because manufacturers set up their internal arrays differently. A RAID recovery engineer must be able to determine the arrangement of data and the parity cycle to recover the data and rebuild the RAID . The data is accessed on a file system level instead of on a controller level. Normally, an NTFS file system is used in this type of recovery , because the logical drives will be providing the basis for working on a RAID image. This allows the RAID recovery engineer to assemble bits and bytes after a successful recovery using propriety high skillful software operated by engineers.
Why Raid data recovery is not for amateurs but for pro engineers?
RAID data recovery is certainly not recommended for amateurs, nor for the weak of heart. East African Data Handlers Data Recovery Services has invested heavily on high end professional on Raid Data recovery and has successfully recovered data from RAIDs as well as all popular types of storage media since 2006.
