5 Tips to Save your RAID Data from Data Loss

by Techchef Data Recovery Techchef Data Recovery
A redundant array of inexpensive disk or Redundant array of independent disk (RAID) was invented to answer the rising cost of hard drives and failures by combining multiple hard disks to perform into a single array.

The array of multiple disks is built in various RAID configurations (RAID 0,1,5, etc.) according to the file sizes and storage needs.

The data is read/write in multiple arrays simultaneously divided equally in particular petitions of the various disks. Even if one disk fails, the rest will continue to work. 

Due to the disk redundancy feature, various small to large-scale businesses and individuals use RAID for storing their business and personal files.

However, redundant RAID is also susceptible to failure due to numerous causes of mechanical and logical damages that render your precious files inaccessible. 

You never know when your RAID array will fail and lose your essential files that can ruin your business workflow. Following some essential tips can prevent data loss situations due to RAID failure.

1. Backup your data

Keep the proper backup of data in a host device that you feel is most important to you that you fear losing any time. Several online and offline backup options can save lots of time and money to invest in a RAID data recovery. An up-to-date backup of precious files are always accessible and works in data loss situations.

2. Get suitable RAID configuration

Conceptualizing RAID design according to your essential business file sizes would perform better when RAID failure occurs. If you have bigger sized files, using RAID 0 makes no sense. Using RAID 1 or upper level can reduce data loss chances due to higher redundancy. However, data can be corrupted and fail the whole configuration that might be a call to RAID data recovery specialists.

3. Avoid rebuilding system when too many disks have failed

Never try to rebuild a RAID array system that can render your lost data inaccessible forever. Suppose in RAID 5, more than one disks have failed; if you replace failed disks with a new one, it may corrupt the system and lose your data forever if not processed correctly.
 
4. Always be prepared for a hard drive failure

If you purchase the RAID array, assuming RAID 5 disks installed simultaneously are of the same batch and production date. This gives the idea that all the disks may reach their end-of-life at the same time, so replacing the one failed disk in the first place will reduce data loss and give continuity to the business workflow without any data loss worry.

5. Avoid DIY rebuild attempt if you are unaware of hard drive failure reason of cause

It is best to contact or reach a RAID data recovery specialists that can better perform recovery on your failed RAID array. Performing DIY rebuild or recovery on your failed RAID might get the procedure wrong and tend to lose data forever.

Conclusion

RAID configurations can be convenient and perfect for storing your important business files but susceptible to various mechanical and logical failures despite one or multiple disk redundancy. Updating the backup of vital files is essential so that your business workflow run smoothly without breaks. Using these tips to protect your RAID configuration can save you a massive amount of money and time.
