Realtime Support Data Recovery provides round-the-clock RAID 0 1 data recovery services. The RAID 0 1 configuration involves using RAID 1 arrays with RAID 0 elements, offering the speed of RAID 0 and the safety of RAID 1. This setup is simpler to implement compared to RAID 3, RAID 5, or RAID 6. However, the main downside is its high cost. On the other hand, a RAID 1 0 array is built as a combination of RAID 0 with RAID 1 elements, offering similar advantages in terms of speed and safety but in a different manner. With RAID 1 0, a large stripe of small mirrors is created, and in case of disk failure and replacement, only a small portion of the entire array needs to be rebuilt. Nevertheless, it shares the same drawback as that of RAID 0 1 – high implementation cost.


Pros: In the event of a malfunction in one of the disks within a RAID 10 setup, the reconstruction process is remarkably swift as it simply involves duplicating all the information from the remaining mirror onto a new drive. This operation can be completed in as little as 30 minutes for 1Tb drives.

Cons: Half of the storage capacity is allocated to mirroring, making it a costly method for redundancy compared to larger RAID 5 or RAID 6 arrays. In the event of a data loss disaster, we are equipped to efficiently and rapidly restore your mission critical data regardless of the cause.

Common RAID 0+1 Failures

Physical RAID Server Failure

If the components of your RAID 0 1 Server experience a physical breakdown, you may find yourself unable to access your crucial daily files. This encompasses potential failures in the RAID 0 1 controller, RAM, power supply, motherboard, or backplane. Regardless of the server’s RAID 0 1 failure, our skilled RAID engineers are capable of retrieving your data.

Logical Failure of RAID 0+1 Server System

When the operating system, such as Windows, Mac, Linux, Novell, Unix, or VMware, experiences logical failures, it becomes corrupted. This can happen due to a virus attack, improper shutdown caused by a power surge or failure, an update that was performed incorrectly, or user error that damages the operating system to the extent that it fails to boot properly and may exhibit symptoms like booting in a loop or displaying blue screens. In such situations, access to your data is lost and you should consult with one of our RAID engineers to decide on the next steps.

User Error

If your RAID 0 1 server experiences accidental data deletion, corruption, or formatting, there is a high likelihood that we can successfully retrieve all your files. In the event of user error, it is crucial to cease usage and power off the system, as any further actions significantly decrease the chances of a complete recovery.

Physical Hard Drive Failure of RAID 0+1 Hard Drives

When the physical components of the hard drives in your RAID 0 1 server malfunction, it results in a physical hard drive failure. Typically, such mechanical failures necessitate clean room procedures to effectively retrieve your data. If any of the member drives in your RAID 0 1 encounter a mechanical failure, it is essential to seek professional data recovery services for the retrieval of crucial files. Our engineers possess the expertise, tools, and facilities required to mend your RAID 0 1 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 crucial to properly label them in the correct sequence to facilitate virtual array reconstruction and save time. Identify the type of RAID array, server, filesystem, and operating system in use. Additionally, ascertain which drives are malfunctioning and which one failed most recently if feasible.

**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 RAID due to the extensive time required, we stand out by offering a flat rate for RAID data recovery. Our team of specialists will gather information from you over the phone to provide an initial estimate of the recovery process. While our flat rate covers most RAID recoveries, the final cost may vary depending on specific circumstances. Our competitive pricing structure ensures that we offer the best value in the market. We advise against attempting to repair the RAID yourself, as this could lead to irreversible damage. Feel free to contact us for assistance before taking any action.

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, there is no definitive answer to this query 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 time required for data recovery.

Hardware Condition – An operational drive allows for faster data recovery compared to a severely damaged one that requires repair. Cases involving accidental deletion, formatting, or viruses typically have a quick turnaround, usually within 24 to 48 hours for most instances, although there are exceptions. Hardware recovery for drives generally takes about 7 to 10 days, but this duration can be extended due to other factors.

Drive / RAID Array Size – Despite being fully operational, a 4Tb drive can take 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 create clones of the drive as an initial precaution against potential mishaps during data handling. It is advisable to allocate an additional day for drives exceeding 500Gb in size, or several days for those surpassing 2Tb. Furthermore, substantial time may be required for very large arrays.

Number of Failed Drives – The turnaround time in striped RAID arrays can be impacted by the quantity of failed drives. If there are several failures, all drives need to be examined to identify which hard drive(s) became inactive first, ensuring that the accurate data is utilized for the rebuild process.

Availability of Donor Parts – When dealing with drives that have hardware problems, we often require parts to fix the drive so that it becomes partially functional and allows for successful data extraction. Some types of hard drives have readily available parts from our suppliers, while others do not. In some cases, we may need to dedicate weeks to scouring the internet and contacting other data recovery facilities in search of the specific drive or parts we require. Alternatively, we might have to purchase a donor drive from abroad and await its delivery. Typically, this is the most time-consuming aspect of the entire process for hardware-based recoveries.

Functionality of Drive After Repair – Numerous hard drive brands are not compatible with replacement parts and may experience significantly reduced performance after internal repairs. The microscopic level at which drives write magnetic data means that even minor variations in the manufacturing of parts can lead to constant data re-reading. Although uncommon, certain drives may require a month or longer to extract all the data following internal repairs.

Pricing for RAID Data Recovery?

The pricing for our RAID data recovery service depends on various factors such as the number and capacity of drives in your RAID array, the type of drives, the nature of the failure, and the file and system type. While our RAID recovery falls under a single rate fee structure, the cost may vary depending on different scenarios. However, we assure you that our prices are highly competitive within the industry. We are committed to matching or beating the price offered by any reputable data recovery company for RAID data recovery as part of 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 media for the returned data. If you have a RAID setup, we recommend using a high-capacity external hard drive. 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. In the case of extremely large arrays with substantial amounts of data, special arrangements may be needed to copy the data onto a NAS or another enclosure with RAID capabilities. If you need recovery from such an array, please get in touch with us for further information.
