RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a technology used for storing data by combining disk drives into a unit. It offers benefits such, as expanded storage capacity improved performance and data redundancy. However similar to any storage system RAID arrays can encounter failures leading to the loss of data.
Some common RAID failure scenarios include:
- Failed disks that cause data to become inaccessible.
- Multiple disk failures that overwhelm fault tolerance mechanisms.
- Corrupted RAID metadata like partitioning structures or parity information.
- Deleted disk configurations or accidental overwrites.
- Physical damage from drops, fire, floods, etc.
- RAID controller failure.
- Viruses or power surges causing file system or drive corruption.
Stellar data recovery software is one of the best RAID drive data recovery software available on the market, and it provides a wide range of services to enhance the user experience. It recovers data from RAID Drives (0, 5 & 6) and Hybrid RAID like 10,50,60. This tool helps to recover deleted documents including photos, emails & more. Crashed PC data can also be recovered via bootable USB media. The supported formats are NTFS & FAT, exFAT, and file system. It is compatible with Windows 11, 10, 8 & 7.
