RAID 5 Data Recovery

Secure Data Recovery Services specializes in RAID 5 data recovery. If you need to regain access to important files after a RAID failure, our excellent turnaround times and high recovery rates can help you avoid downtime, productivity losses and other serious consequences of data loss.

Raid 5 Data Recovery

RAID 5 is by far the most popular RAID configuration option. It offers serious performance advantages over RAID 3 and 4 thanks to its distributed parity, and with fault tolerance for a single hard drive failure, RAID 5 is an ideal option for web servers and storage servers.

One of the major advantages of a RAID 5 is this distributed parity. This feature allows for faster data access speeds than RAID 4, a similar configuration with a dedicated parity drive. A RAID 5 can write to all of its hard drives at the same time, whereas a system with a dedicated parity would be limited by the speed of the parity drive.

However, RAID 5 systems need to be rebuilt after losing a hard drive. Many of our clients lose access to their data during this rebuild process when a second hard drive fails or when the RAID controller stops functioning properly. While RAID 5 offers fault tolerance, it cannot replace a well-planned backup strategy.

RAID 5 failure scenarios include:

  • Controller Failure
  • Failure During RAID 5 Rebuild
  • Multiple Hard Drive Failures Past Point of Redundancy
  • Electronic Damage
  • Accidental File Deletion
  • Parity Loss or Damage
  • Accidental Formatting or Re-initialization

What to Do When a RAID 5 Array Fails

If your RAID 5 stops functioning or if you cannot access data, turn it off immediately. Never use data recovery software on striped data. Exercise extreme caution when attempting to repair or rebuild your array, especially if a previous rebuild attempt failed. Do not rebuild your array if you notice any unusual failure symptoms or error messages.

In our experience, most RAID 5 systems are completely recoverable if they are shut off immediately after failure symptoms occur. Operating a damaged RAID risks accidental overwrites, parity loss and other serious issues that can complicate the data recovery process. For the best chances of a successful case result, you should contact a professional RAID data recovery provider as soon as possible.

    We had all of our data on a RAID array on our server. When our server went down our office came to a screeching halt! SDR did an excellent job recovering our data. They were able to get 100% of our data back. Our recovery specialist, Jeremy, kept us up to date at every step and was able to answer all of our questions. If ever we need data recovery again, I know we can count on them!

    We had a failed 12 TB RAID 5 array, with two of the drives having a partial rebuild already started and file system damage. SDR was able to do a 100% recovery of all data on that array. Highly recommended and a great customer experience.

    SDR lead me thru the entire process from the moment I dropped off my hard drives until I received my recovered data. Having Jeremy as my dedicated account rep was especially helpful...he answered every question I had and kept me updated throughout the process.

  • Reliable Service

    Reviewed on Oct 20 2016

    Secure Data Recovery completed the task thoroughly and completely. Jeremy Provchy (the primary rep I dealt with) was very patient with me, as I was not always able to respond in a timely fashion, particularly during the exploratory phase of our possible engagement. However, once committed, the company executed quickly and reliably, and delivered the recovered files/data/media without issue. Cost was a bit high, but comparatively speaking, their rates/quotes were in line with other companies. I would recommend them for others who need data recovery services.

  • SDR came through for us

    Reviewed on Oct 12 2016

    Let me say that Secure Data Recovery saved us in a significant way. Like many of the other stories here, we had a complete hard drive failure (BOTH mirrored hard drives from one of our servers died). Two hours of tech support with Dell and they gave up. Then I found out our backup software stopped backing up (just this server) in July. So we’ve lost 3 months of documents, a crippling amount for our business. My last option was the service offered by Secure Data Recovery. Less than a week after sending them our data, we got an external drive overnighted back to us with a 100% recovery of all the files from the failed hard drives. The process was actually easy. It wasn’t inexpensive, but totally worth it. Thanks Chris and thank you to your team!

  • Data is back! Moving on.

    Reviewed on Aug 31 2016

    After an accident involving water damage within our server room, the terrible feeling in my gut came to an end thanks to the services of Secure Data Recovery. A RAID array on four drives swollen with water damage and loaded with data was completely recovered. From my initial phone call to my case manager, Jeremy, the sense of urgency never diminished and all communication was quick, concise and very informative. We were kept up to date throughout the entire process.

    The total cost of recovery was a lot more than I had anticipated. However, in the end, we are back up and running.
