RAID 5 data recovery can call for extensive technical expertise. Because these hard drive configurations are designed for speed and reliability, they tend to be used for a variety of applications.
In theory, the disc striping and redundancy of parity between the drives should render the odds of experiencing a failure or data loss extremely low. In practice, however, multiple drives can fail within a relatively short amount of time. Or, in the more likely case, corruption can spread from one drive to another as a result of misuse or malicious acts (i.e., hacking and cyber theft).
Regardless of the reason, when your hard drive or RAID configuration fails, RAID 5 data recovery might be the answer. If you find yourself in that situation, here’s what you need to know:
#1: It’s Important to Take Your Drives Offline ASAP
This is important for two reasons. First, letting damaged hard drives continue to spin can cause internal physical damage to the drive. If there is already physical damage, then keeping the drive on will most likely cause more, irreversible damage.The longer they continue to turn, the higher the odds that the data will become unrecoverable.
#2: You Shouldn’t Try to Recover Damaged or Corrupted Files Yourself
At TTR Data Recovery, our certified IACRB technicians use specialized tools and techniques, software, and an ISO-certified Clean Room to minimize the risk of damage, and to maximize the possibility of fully recovering the data. Most of the time when we see hard drives that are damaged beyond repair, it’s because someone else had already attempted to recover the data, prompting irreversible damage.
#3: RAID 5 Data Recovery is a Job for the Experts at TTR Data Recovery
Because RAIDs are built with reliability and redundancy in mind, most people are surprised to see that their RAID system has failed them. And because most people believe it couldn’t happen to them, the chance of failure is even higher due to the little precaution taken to avoid the unexpected. And when you lose the high capacity of critical data that is usually stored in a RAID, you can’t trust just anybody to save it. You can however trust the certified and highly experienced professional team at TTR Data Recovery to take every necessary step to ensure the efficient and timely retrieval of your mission critical data.
