RAID 5 storage arrays are currently the most popular form of RAID array. RAID 5 combines redundancy and speed, for a fast and efficient use of storage, making it attractive as a common solution for server storage.
RAID 5 disk configuration is a set-up where the data is striped along with the distributed parity information across three or more hard disks. The striping gives you speed while the distributed parity provides fault tolerance. Should one of the disks fail, data on the failed disk can be rebuilt using the parity information stored on the remaining working disks.
When a RAID 5 array fails, RAID 5 recovery is still possible because of the inbuilt redundancy. However if more than one disk failure in the RAID 5 array at the same time, then the missing data from the failed disks can not be rebuilt without expertise and RAID 5 data recovery experience.
RAID 5 data recovery requires thorough understanding of the RAID disk sequencing, RAID stripe lengths and XOR parity information, along with experience in file system and data structures.
DiskEng RAID 5 data recovery specialists can recover your data from RAID 5 storage arrays. For many years now, our RAID 5 recovery specialists have been recovering data from a wide range of complex RAID arrays. This includes software RAID 5 and hardware RAID 5 storage arrays.
