RAID 5 is one of the most widely used storage platform used my most of the enterprise these days. RAID 5 offers best level of performance combined with best protection to your data stored on drives. However, despite its overall robustness, sometimes RAID 5 platforms fail. Since RAID 5 arrays built on mechanical hard disk partitions, they are susceptible to logical failure. When RAID drive gets logically failed, all data resides on such drives become inaccessible and eventually results in data loss. In such critical situations, you must have to use a legitimate backup to overcome RAID data loss crisis. However, if you don’t have appropriate backup and thinking about how to recover files from raid drive, here is the simplest way for you. Even though plenty of tools available, but when it comes to recover data from RAID 5, RAID Recovery Tool is the most powerful and user-friendly tool available in the world.
Whenever you come across RAID 5 hard drive partition loss, stop using that drive because it might overwrite the existing data and results in permanent data loss. When data has been lost from RAID 5, only index of data has been removed. The Windows OS fails to access such data due to absence of index pointer. However, RAID 5 recovery tool will easily search such data with its strong scanning algorithm and restores with the help of unique file signature.
Few common reasons for loss of RAID 5 drive from computer
No matter how you have lost data from RAID 5 partition, RAID 5 recovery tool will easily restore all kinds of data at your fingertips. In addition to RAID 5, you can restore data from various RAID storage allocations like RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 2 etc. It can also retrieve RAID hard drive of SATA, SCSI, IDE and many more hard drive types. When you launch RAID 5 recovery tool, the inbuilt scanning algorithm of this tool will search for lost or deleted data throughout the complete drive and restores them using unique file signatures. One can use this tool to recover various types of files from storage drives like memory cards, flash drives, external hard disks, FireWire drives, USB hard disks etc. Moreover, it can used as Windows RAID recovery to recover RAID partition from Windows OS versions like Windows 8 and many more.
Step 1: Download RAID Recovery Tool and install it on computer then launch this software to recover RAID drive as shown in figure A.
