Data recovery from RAID
Complex data storages or RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) are widely applied nowadays by both corporate and home users. RAID-systems expand storage capacity, providing a faster access to the information and increase storage reliability through redundancy – the process of duplication of critical components of a system. Though also called redundant, RAID0 and JBOD systems are rather an exclusion, as their operation is based on a non-redundant algorithm. Despite increased data safety, the information from RAID can still be lost due to various reasons.
When recovering data from a RAID-system you should take into account RAID data distribution algorithm, information distribution algorithm and redundancy. For most RAID-systems, a preliminary assembly of the RAID components is required to get access to data on the file system. For such cases SysDev Laboratories offers UFS Explorer and Recovery Explorer editions for RAID Recovery.
