We have successfully restored lost, inaccessible, and corrupted data in various instances of RAID 0 data loss, and we are equipped to assist with any type of RAID 0 failure, whether logical or mechanical.


Pros: RAID 0 provides excellent performance for both reading and writing data, with no overhead from parity controls. It utilizes the full storage capacity without any additional overhead, and is straightforward to implement.

Cons: RAID 0 lacks fault tolerance, meaning that if one drive fails, all data stored in the RAID 0 array will be lost. This type of setup is unsuitable for mission-critical systems. If you encounter a data loss scenario due to a disaster, we are capable of swiftly and effectively recovering your essential data, irrespective of the cause of the data loss.

Common RAID 0 Failures

Physical RAID Server Failure

If the components of your RAID 0 Server suffer physical failure, you may find yourself unable to access your crucial daily files. This encompasses potential failures in the RAID 0 controller, RAM, power supply, motherboard, or backplane. No matter the nature of the RAID 0 server failure, our skilled RAID engineers are capable of retrieving your data.

Logical Failure of RAID 0 Server System

When the operating system, such as Windows, Mac, Linux, Novell, Unix, or VMware, experiences logical failures, it becomes corrupted. This can result from a virus attack, improper shutdown due to power issues, an update that went wrong, or user error that damages the operating system to the extent that it fails to boot properly. In such cases of data inaccessibility and system malfunctioning like boot loops or blue screens, it is essential to consult with one of our RAID engineers for guidance on the next steps.

User Error

In the event of accidental data deletion or corruption/formatting of your RAID 0 server, we have a high probability of successfully recovering all your files. Should a user error occur, it is crucial for you to immediately cease use and power off the system, as any further action significantly diminishes the likelihood of a complete recovery.

Physical Hard Drive Failure of RAID 0 Hard Drives

If the mechanical components of the hard drives in your RAID 0 server malfunction, it results in physical hard drive failure. Typically, such mechanical issues necessitate clean room procedures for successful data retrieval. When a member drive of your RAID 0 encounters mechanical failure, it is essential to engage professional data recovery services to retrieve your crucial files. Our team of engineers possesses the necessary expertise, tools, and facilities to fix your RAID 0 member hard drive and promptly restore your files within our class 100 clean room environment.

What to do when your RAID fails.

  • Do not run any chkdsk options like FSCK, or CHKDSK. These utilities can corrupt or destroy your file system.
  • Do not try to rebuild the RAID array. Doing so can wipe out data needed to recover the data you are seeking.
  • Do not remove several failed drives at once hoping to reinitialize the array.
  • Do not lose the correct order of the drives in the array.
  • Do not try to repair any damaged drives yourself.

Prior to shipping out the drives, it is important to label them in the appropriate sequence to facilitate virtual array reconstruction and save time. Determine the type of RAID array, server, filesystem, and operating system being utilized. Additionally, identify any faulty drives and ascertain which drive failed most recently.

**Important** We need all original disks that were in the array the last time it was operating normally.

Although the majority of data recovery companies do not provide a free diagnostic for receiving a RAID due to the extensive time required, we differentiate ourselves by offering fixed-rate fees for RAID data recovery. Our team of RAID recovery specialists will gather information from you over the phone to provide a preliminary estimate. While our fixed-rate fees cover RAID recovery, the final cost may vary depending on specific circumstances. Our competitive fixed-rate fee structure surpasses all other prices in the market. We strongly advise against attempting to repair the RAID yourself, as this could potentially cause irreparable damage. Please contact us before taking any action that could jeopardize your RAID system.

What You Can Expect during your RAID Data Recovery Process:

  • You will be assigned a personal service representative for your project who will guide you through the process.
  • The data recovery process can take 7 to 10 business days based on many factors, see below.
  • The assigned service representative will be in daily communication with the data recovery technician working on your case and keep you up-to-date with the recovery progress.

How Long Does RAID Recovery Take?

Most customers inquire about the duration of the recovery process as one of their initial questions. However, providing a definitive answer is challenging due to the unique nature of each case. While some arrays can be reconstructed within a day or two, several factors may influence the overall timeframe for data recovery.

Hardware Condition – Functional drives allow for faster data recovery compared to severely damaged ones requiring repair. Cases involving accidental deletion, formatting, or viruses typically have a quick turnaround of 24 to 48 hours, although some may take longer. Hardware recovery for drives generally takes 7 to 10 days, but additional factors can extend this timeframe.

Drive / RAID Array Size – Despite being fully operational, a 4Tb drive can require up to 20 hours to complete a single scan, and multiple scans may be necessary for a comprehensive recovery. In our capacity as a professional data recovery lab, we consistently prioritize drive cloning as a precaution against potential data mishaps. It is advisable to anticipate an additional day for drives exceeding 500Gb or several days for those surpassing 2Tb. Furthermore, significant time should be allotted for very large arrays.

Number of Failed Drives – The turnaround time in striped RAID arrays can be impacted by the number of failed drives. In cases of multiple failures, all drives need to be assessed to identify the hard drive(s) that went offline first, ensuring that the accurate data is utilized for the rebuild process.

Availability of Donor Parts – When dealing with drives that have hardware problems, it is frequently necessary to obtain parts in order to restore the drive to a partially operational state where the data can be extracted successfully. Certain sub-models of hard drives are widely available and it is easy to procure the necessary parts from one of our suppliers. However, there are also sub-models that are more difficult to find. In some cases, we may spend several weeks searching online and contacting other data recovery facilities in order to locate the specific drive or parts we require. Alternatively, we may need to purchase a donor drive from another country and wait for it to be delivered. This aspect of the process typically represents the longest phase for hardware-level recoveries.

Functionality of Drive After Repair – Numerous hard drive brands are not compatible with replacement parts and may experience significant degradation in performance following internal repairs. Due to the microscopic nature of magnetic data writing, even minor variations in the manufacturing of components can lead to continuous data re-reading. Although uncommon, certain drives may require a month or longer to fully retrieve all data post internal repairs.

Pricing for RAID Data Recovery?

The pricing for our RAID data recovery service depends on several factors, including the number and capacity of drives in your RAID array, the drive types, failure type, and file/system type. While our RAID recovery falls under a single rate fee structure, the cost may vary based on different scenarios. However, we assure you that our prices are highly competitive within the industry. In fact, we are committed to matching or surpassing the prices offered by any reputable data recovery company for RAID data recovery through our lowest price guarantee.

How Do I Get My Data Back After Recovery?

After your recovery is finished, feel free to bring your own storage device for the returned data. For RAID arrays, a high-capacity external hard drive is typically recommended. Alternatively, you can buy a new external hard drive from us at a competitive price, and we will transfer the data onto it for you. If you have very large arrays with substantial amounts of data, we may need to arrange for the data to be copied onto a NAS or similar enclosure with RAID capabilities. Please get in touch with us if you need recovery from such an array and require further information.
