RAID Data Recovery
Definition: What does RAID data recovery mean?
RAID data recovery is the process of recovering and restoring data from a RAID storage architecture or infrastructure.
It uses a combination of automated and manual data recovery processes to extract and restore data from one or more RAID drives and storage components. RAID data recovery can be implemented in both hardware-based and software-based RAID.
RAID data recovery is different from standard data recovery processes, since the RAID storage architecture uses a unique and complex method to store and extract data. RAID data recovery can be for any of the RAID levels, including RAID 0, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10. Recovery is usually required due to technical errors such as:
- Hard drive defective
- Faulty controllers
- Overwritten data
- Software application / corruption
- Reformatting RAID
Recovery generally requires the reconstruction of all RAID storage arrays to the original or last known good configuration and configuration. The individual / software must know the RAID configuration at the hardware, software and firmware level to recover data successfully. Identifying the correct RAID array is an essential part of the RAID recovery process.
