RAID 0 DATA RECOVERY
RAID 0 Data Recovery Service from True Industry Experts
If your home or business relies on a Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) for data storage, it writes information to two or more drives. The first form of RAID storage was RAID 0. If you experience failure, recovery is possible if member disks remain accessible.
RAID 0 DATA RECOVERY
Causes of RAID 0 Failure
Several issues might cause RAID 0 array failure:
- If one member disk has sectors go bad, data in those sectors will be inaccessible, causing the drive head to crash and the array to fail.
- If drive heads become damaged, the array will no longer correctly function.
- Firmware corruption or logical issues with file system formatting may cause one of the member disks to fail.
- Corrupted partitions within the array might become unusable.
- A power surge or natural catastrophe might damage components.
- Virus attacks might cause device failure.
Data Recovery RAID 0 Array Failure
If you’ve received notification of RAID 0 failure, you probably experienced that sinking feeling that often accompanies the loss of something valuable. An expert may still be able to recover your data. If your hard drive is only disconnected, power down your computer and reconnect it. When you restart your computer, RAID 0 volume may be restored as normal.
If your hard drive failed, do not attempt to use software for restoration or you might overwrite the data you most want to recover. Instead, turn off your system and call a professional data recovery RAID expert to find out your options.

We have successfully restored data lost from natural disasters and malicious attacks with the most advanced recovery solutions in the industry.

HELP! WHAT DO I DO IF MY RAID SYSTEM DRIVES FAIL?
It depends on the RAID level and your knowledge of the system. If it is a complicated setup that you are unfamiliar with or feel uncomfortable at all, contact a data recovery RAID professional immediately, especially where critical information is involved. In the event of a single hard drive failure in a redundant RAID type where the data is still accessible, replace the failed drive with an exact spare and let it rebuild the array. If you have a second failure, or you have hot spares set up and you are unsure of the order of the drives, you will only make matters much worse or even unrecoverable if you try to replace or rebuild drives. Whatever you do, do not reinitialize your system if you are concerned for you data.
We have seen countless situations where staff that is not completely familiar with their systems, try to ‘fix’ the problem but only make it impossible to perform a RAID data recovery. In most of these situations, it would have been possible if they contacted a data recovery professional before trying to reinitialize.
