Understanding RAID 1 Setup and Recovery Options
In many ways, RAID 1 is the most basic form of true RAID. RAID 1 systems use mirroring, which means that each drive in the array is exactly the same. When the array writes
data, it writes identical data to each hard disk drive. Most RAID 1 arrays have two drives, although some systems have additional drives for additional fault protection.
Many businesses mirror RAID 0 or RAID 5 arrays with a RAID 1, creating an identical copy of the primary array to add additional redundancy.
RAID 1 offers several advantages over other popular RAID configurations such as RAID 5 and RAID 0. It is an extremely dependable option, as the system will not lose data as
long as one drive is functional. However, RAID 1 does not offer performance improvements over a standard hard drive and may actually offer slower performance without the
implementation of multiple RAID controllers. Because of this, RAID 1 is typically used when high fault tolerance is more important than performance.
For many businesses and personal computer users, RAID 1 failures have catastrophic consequences. Fortunately, Secure Data Recovery Services offers high success rates for
these systems due to the built-in redundancy of the RAID 1 configuration.
Some of the most common causes of RAID 1 failure include:
- Accidental File Deletion or Formatting
- Faulty RAID Controller
- Errors During RAID Rebuild
- Hardware Conflicts
- Software Errors Causing File Damage or Corruption
- Corrupt RAID Array Configuration
- Multiple Hard Drive Failures
- Electronic Damage
- Operating System Failures
RAID failures may be preceded by physical symptoms such as unusual clicking and whirring sounds, electronics failures and frequent crashes. In some situations, RAID systems
will simply stop working or files will disappear.
Our engineers have decades of experience with RAID media, and we offer recovery and repair services for every RAID 1 failure scenario. Call our customer service team today at

Steps to Take After a RAID 1 Failure
If you cannot access data on a RAID 1, do not attempt to rebuild the array or take any other steps to repair your system. Do not reboot the array. You may inadvertently
contribute to platter damage and media corruption by operating the system in a failed condition. Power the array down by holding down its power button or by flipping its
Likewise, you should never run any disk utilities on the system. Common utilities like Scandisk and chkdsk can damage a failed RAID, and while RAID 1 is more resistant to
this type of damage than other RAID configurations, disk utilities can only contribute to data loss. Turn the array off immediately and contact Secure Data Recovery Services
to discuss recovery options.

Advanced Laboratories and Experienced Data Recovery Teams
In order to successfully treat RAID 1 systems, data recovery engineers need access to specialized equipment. Secure Data Recovery Services invests in research and
development, and our RAID specialists have developed a number of proprietary tools and utilities that allow for higher recovery rates and faster turnaround times for all types
Cleanroom technology is particularly important for data recovery providers, as damaged hard drives have several components that are extremely sensitive to airborne
contamination. We were the first data recovery provider to use a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom for physical media repairs. Our advanced Cleanroom allows a maximum of 10
airborne particles per cubic foot, greatly improving on the Class 100 Cleanroom technology used by other data recovery providers. Visit our Cleanroom page for more
Our engineers treat all physically damaged RAID members, then make a bit-by-bit copy of each drive before rebuilding your array. By creating copies of your hard disk drives,
we can safely use logical data recovery utilities on your RAID 1 without risking accidental damage.
Our engineers have experience with all common RAID operating systems including:
- Windows and Windows Server
- Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server
- Solaris and More
We can treat most RAID failures within 2-5 days, depending on the extent of media damage, the array's filesystem, the size of the array and several other factors. Secure Data
Recovery Services also offers 24/7/365 emergency data recovery services for expedited treatment. We can recover most RAID 1 systems in less than 48 hours under this service
