How can I Recover Data from a Failed Raid?

8-drive raid data recovery


Do you belong to the majority of pc users who refuse to back up their files because they think that data loss will never happen to them? Do you believe that your Raid (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is invincible and will never break down? If you are, you better start setting up your backup now. Remember, it’s better to be safe than sorry. And if it’s already too late and your files have already been lost, here are a few things you can do to try and get them back.


Look for Data Recovery Software

The first thing that comes to mind of the average pc user when he encounters a problem with his machine is to try to fix the problem on his own whether through troubleshooting or asking in relevant forums. When it comes to raid data loss, the internet is once again your friend. There are numerous free and paid software applications in the World Wide Web that can help you with your problem. Just remember to do a little research about a product before downloading and installing it on your computer. Make sure it is free from spyware, adware, and viruses. Just keep in mind that free software can only get you so far. Recovery is usually limited to accidentally deleted files. There are, however, some paid software that can perform recovery even if your operating system is corrupted.


Look for a Data Recovery Professional

Downloadable applications and programs can only restore files if the cause of the problem is software corruption. Unfortunately, there are times when data becomes inaccessible due to hardware damage. If your raid looks like it is not getting turned on when you power up your pc, chances are high that it needs to be looked at by a technician. It is vital that you do not tamper with your raid or else you will just make matters a lot worse.

A raid is very sensitive. It should be opened only when inside a “clean room”. A clean room is a closed space with a controlled environment that prevents dust and other impurities from entering. The said room is necessary when opening up a raid because just one particle of dust can cause severe damage to an exposed raid.


Ready Your Wallet

Raid Data Recovery can cost thousands of dollars so you better be prepared. Fortunately, there is a cheaper alternative. $300 Data Recovery charges only a fixed rate of $300 for all its services.

Having at least one backup of your important files has been recommended for more than a decade now. Unfortunately, very few people bother usually because they believe that with the superior technology we have today, losing wanted files is very remote. This is, however, not really the case. There are still several reasons why a hard disk can become inaccessible. Having to many viruses and spyware in your system can cause it to go haywire. Frequent improper shutdowns can also cause damage to your hard drive to pile up. Then there is also the classic “I deleted my files by mistake”.


For Those Who Don’t Do Backups

If you are one of those who do not backup their files and it has come to a point where it is already too late to regret not doing so, there are still a few things that you can do. First of all, there is the traditional “troubleshoot any and every problem” approach. You can start by downloading and installing some file recovery software from the internet. There are a lot of them that you can get for free while there are also those that require payment. If you are lucky you might get the files you need back. Most of the time, however, you will end up not retrieving enough.


For Those Who Can Perform File Restoration on Their Own

If you cannot do the file restoration on your own, you can still seek the help of a data recovery service provider. Just make sure you have a few hundreds of dollars prepared. Sometimes, the cost might even reach to one or a couple of thousands. Just getting the hard drive checked is likely to cause you to shell out around a hundred bucks.
