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.
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
