Part 1. How to recover RAID using RAID Wizard.
RAID means a class of systems developed to protect the data, increase the access speed or just get the larger volume sizes by using array of a drives instead of single drive. Today almost everyone who wants to keep protect family photo archive safe, get higher speeds to work with heavy files uses RAID at home, and we even can't imagine business environment without RAID. Some RAID levels provide higher access speeds with lover levels of data safety even comparable to regular hard drives. Basing on all these facts we can say that the problem of data recovery from RAID is even more important than recovery from other devices.
Is it difficult to recover RAID?
Recovery data from RAID is more complex than recovery from single drive, as files are physically cut by blocks and stored on different drives. When the RAID system area is damaged or lost, it may not be possible to find the original schema to determine how the data was organized on the drives. In such cases our product is the only solution on the market which can recover RAID structure to let you recover your data. Even if you sure the RAID header is not damaged, to recover RAID it's always better to reconstruct it virtually with RAID Recovery, as some RAID controllers may ignore read operations over logically emptied blocks and return zeros to reduce access time.
RAID Recovery makes recovery from RAID easy to follow and understand even if you don't know how the RAID works, you can just follow our wizard to recover RAID.
Just follow the steps below to Recover your RAID.
Disable the RAID in BIOS of your motherboard. If your RAID is based on discrete RAID controller, disable it and connect the drives to the motherboard directly. If your RAID is organized on Network Attached Storage like MyBook, you need to extract the drives and mount to your motherboard. The drives should be seen from BIOS and Windows as separate drives.
Let the RAID Recovery work with your drives directly.
Start the RAID Wizard, click Next to continue. Here you can select the mode of Wizard, choose to recover RAID or Dynamic Disk, process to Expert Mode or just skip everything to open the RAID Constructor screen.
In this example we'll recover the RAID 0 array from two drives, so we'll select to recover RAID.
In the next screen you can choose the RAID level, disk count and stripe size. If you don't know the stripe size, you can leave the Unknown and click Next. Another form will ask you to select the drives used in your RAID. We've selected the images of two drives from RAID 0.
Next form is called RAID Constructor. The upper part of the window is used to change the RAID configuration while in the bottom you can preview the folder structure, open the details and the previews for the files on the fly to be sure your configuration is correct. Left upper part of the window is active configuration, here you can see two our drives added into the RAID. In the right top part you will see all the available drives you've selected to include. You can use drag'n'drop to add and remove the drives to configuration. You also can create more than one configuration and switch between them. When you click Finish, you'll see the RAIDs you've created in main window of RAID Recovery marked in red and available to scan. Now all that you need to recover RAID is to use Disk Wizard to scan them and recover your data.Download Buy Now Overview Features Tutorial FAQ Press
