RAID 0 configuration, also known as a striped array, is where the data is striped or equally spread in sequence across each of the disks in the array.
RAID 0 volumes are configured without any redundancy, so if any disk in the array fails, the entire array becomes inaccessible. RAID 0 is normally chosen when there is the need for fast read write access.
The risk of a RAID 0 disk failing is about the same as with any other RAID configuration. The only real problem is that there is no redundancy in a striped array. This means that when a RAID 0 disk fails, you are left with the data on the remaining disks, but have a missing part that is lost from the failed disk.
Our RAID 0 recovery service can still recover the data from your RAID 0 array and depending on the number of disks in the array and the size and type of files stored in the array the results can still be very good.
Recovering data from RAID 0 array requires expertise, understanding of the stripe size and RAID disk sequences. Once the sequencing and stripe size are confirmed, the array can then be de-raided for recovery.
DiskEng RAID 0 data recovery is carried out using our strict RAID recovery procedures. This requires each RAID disk in the array to be imaged onto our secure servers, for data preservation and integrity.
The images are then processed as virtual disks through our powerful RAID recovery software tools. This allows our data recovery specialists to create a virtual RAID 0 volume, from which your data is then recovered.
RAID 0 arrays can fail for many reasons; below are a few of the common causes of RAID 0 failure to look out for if you are using a RAID 0 volume:
- RAID 0 disk failure
- RAID controller failure
- RAID 0 configuration damage
- RAID 0 deleted or formatted
- RAID 0 storage offline
- RAID 0 disk swapped
- RAID 0 partition damage
We have handled some of the largest RAID 0 arrays spanning across tens of drives and storing terabytes of data. If you need RAID 0 data recovery, you can rest assured that we can recover your data.
