- Q: How does data loss occur on a RAID 0+1?
RAID 0+1 is a mirror of stripes, and the mirroring component of the RAID offers decent fault tolerance. However, a RAID 0+1 can lose data if two hard drives fail, and this can occur due to overheating or unusual electrical events.
More often, a RAID 0+1 will lose data for logical (non-hardware related) reasons. File corruption, user error and virus damage can occur on any RAID system, regardless of its configuration.
- Q: How do data recovery companies treat RAID 0+1 arrays?
While the process varies from case to case, engineers always need to treat any physical media issues first in order to restore the damaged array to a functional condition. Secure Data Recovery Services maintains a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, and our teams work in this specialized environment when performing physical repairs. This allows for better recovery rates and faster turnaround times for physically damaged RAID 01 systems.
Engineers often need to work directly with RAID data in order to restore damaged files. To do this, they need years of experience and access to proprietary file utilities. We invest heavily in our technology in order to maintain an overall success rate of 96 percent.
When data is accessible, the engineers can transfer recovered files to an external hard drive or another device.
- Q: What should I look for when choosing a RAID data recovery provider?
RAID data recovery is a specialized process. Providers should have an experienced staff and a reputation for providing consistent results.

- Q: How much does RAID 0+1 data recovery cost, and how long does it take?
There is no simple way to estimate costs and turnaround times, as RAID 0+1 configurations and failure scenarios vary greatly from one case to the next. Factors that can affect the process include the RAID's operating system, the number of drives in the array and the total size of the requested files.

- Q: Can I use data recovery software to treat my damaged RAID 0+1?
No. Most commercial data recovery utilities are not optimized for RAID 0+1, and you may put your array at risk by operating it in a failed condition. For the best possible results, you should turn your RAID off as soon as you notice signs of media damage or data loss.
