RAID 0 Data Recovery
RAID 0 is the most basic array in RAID data storage with an average of two disks and a low cost. It is a popular choice for data storage among home users who process a lot of read and write requests but don’t need redundancy. The simplistic format for a RAID 0 also means that failure is just as easy. If one drive in a RAID 0 fails, then the data on the entire system is lost and only a professional data recovery company can retrieve your files. Secure Data Recovery has over a decade of experience recovering data from all RAID levels.
A single hard drive failure can prevent you from accessing data on your RAID 0 system.

A RAID 0 displays the hard drives in its configuration as a single volume. Data that is written to the RAID is striped across the disks without parity, meaning there is no redundancy if a drive fails. This configuration offers high performance for tasks like video editing and gaming that need speed.
Users with this array understand that they need to have their files backed up elsewhere, but many do not follow this procedure, resulting in serious data loss. The engineers at Secure Data Recovery have the knowledge and proprietary tools to recover critical files in difficult RAID 0 failure scenarios.
Types of RAID 0 Failure
The nature of the RAID 0 array means that there is no protection against physical and logical damage on the hard drives in your RAID configuration. There are a variety of failure scenarios and instances where your array can lose data.
- Fire or water damage
- Power surge
- Multiple hard drive failures
- RAID 0 controller failure
- HDDs overheat
- Printed Circuit Board (PCB) damage
- Accidental deletion
- Reformatting of partitions
- Overwritten files
- RAID 0 user error
- File or database corruption
- Software issues
In some cases, a RAID 0 will even become inaccessible because the ethernet or other power connections are faulty. No matter what type of failure your RAID 0 experiences, Secure Data Recovery has seen it and recovered data from the array. Our state-of-the-art recovery labs throughout North America and engineers with decades of experience in the data recovery industry allow us to provide a professional and effective recovery service.
When we receive a RAID 0 in our lab, we begin by performing diagnostics on the array. After we determine the cause of failure and the recovery process, we give a price quote and estimated turnaround time. Once the client agrees to the price, we will not charge more, even if the recovery takes more time than anticipated.
We begin the recovery by repairing the disks in the array to a temporary working condition. This takes place in our Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom using our on-site parts inventory. After the repair, the engineers image the media to work from a copy of the data. They then recover any available files from the file system and extract the information manually. We are the only data recovery company to return your data on a hardware encrypted and FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validated data storage device for total security.
What to Do When Your RAID 0 Fails
When your RAID 0 array fails, do not use recovery software as it may overwrite your data while installing on your host device. In many cases, the software will not work with your RAID’s operating system or if it does run, will not retrieve all the files you need. Due to the range of possible failures and severity of the damage, software will not be able to recover data in serious cases.
Do not attempt a DIY recovery because opening your drives in a non-cleanroom environment will only cause further damage and can make recovery impossible. The best thing to do when your RAID 0 fails is to power down the array and disconnect the connection. This will prevent any further damage or accidental deletion while attempting to retrieve the files.
