RAID 5 Recovery Services from an Industry Leader

Industry Leading RAID 5 Data Recovery Services

RAID 5 arrays are universally used across storage systems including standalone, NAS, and DAS. They are commonly used because they allow for fewer disks to be utilized while still maintaining redundancy. However, redundancy does not guarantee your system won’t experience data loss.

Secure Data Recovery can recover your files from a RAID 5 array in any system. We are the industry leader in RAID data recovery and our engineers have decades of experience working with all manufacturers of RAIDs. We boast an overall 96% success rate for recovery from both physically and logically damaged RAID 5 arrays.

Raid 5 Data Recovery

A single RAID 5 system must have a minimum of three hard drives. Data is written to the drives at the same time and is equally distributed among them. These systems are the most popular RAID configuration for storage archival, database environments, and more. Data loss on a RAID 5 can occur due to accidental file deletion, parity loss, or it may simply wear down after time.

Secure Data Recovery engineers have decades of experience in RAID recovery in all data loss situations. Our dedicated R&D team works to discover new recovery methods for existing and emerging media and uses proprietary technology for recovery.

RAID 5 Failure Scenarios

Consumers choose RAID 5s as a way to protect their data because they offer redundancy across disks. No matter the level of redundancy, a RAID level 5 can still fail due to user error or unavoidable physical damage. With its block-level striping and distributed parity, all drives except for one in a RAID 5 array need to be present in order to function.

Drive failures can fall into a few different categories including user error, environmental damage, and mechanical failure. In any of these scenarios, the best course of action is to power down your RAID 5. Attempting to turn on your system or rebuild it may result in data loss if done incorrectly. Some of the most common causes for RAID 5 failure are:

  • Failed Rebuild Attempt
  • Malfunctioning RAID Controller
  • Physical Damage Including Fire and Water
  • Multiple Disk Failure
  • RAID disks inaccessible after system upgrade
  • Missing RAID partition
  • Accidental Reformatting/Reinitialization

How to Recover from a RAID 5 Failure

When your RAID 5 fails or is receiving error messages, the best course of action is to turn the system off immediately and take the following steps to recover:

  • Call a professional data recovery company like Secure Data Recovery and give details about your RAID failure.
  • Securely package your array to be shipped to our certified lab.
  • Receive your recovered files on secure transfer media with our FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated data handling practices.

    Life Saver

    Called Secure data after RAID 5 HD failed on server. Chris McMacken was very knowledgeable and collected all necessary information. I shipped them he failed HD and status updated can be checked online. He called back with price and timeline after engineer analyzed the HD. After about a week, I received a copy of the data in an external drive. The process was painless except for how much it cost. Overall, I''m happy with the process and the way everything was communicated. Thank you

    WHEW! Life Savers!

    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!

    Amazing Results

    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.

    Great Job

    We had a server go down, that contained our accounts payable. They were able to do an emergency recovery, and got all of our data back extremely fast. Our account rep Alec Sakenes did a great job keeping everything moving forward and fast tracked.
