RAID recovery services
Whether your device has suffered physical damage or undergone a logical failure, we offer you a range of services to match your specific needs.
The best recovery option for any type of RAID system, no matter what data loss situation has been experienced.
This recovery service is provided in our state-of-the-art data recovery lab and ISO-5/Class 100 cleanroom environment to ensure the safety of your data.
Remote RAID Data Recovery
Your data is recovered remotely without your media ever leaving your premises. We connect to your system via the Internet to perform a live recovery.
Available when the storage device or system is still operational.
If your RAID system cannot leave your premises, our engineers can bring their recovery expertise to you.
This option is only available for emergency service. For on-site data recovery, the storage device or system must be operational.
Custom RAID data recovery
We offer custom-designed recovery solutions for proprietary RAID systems and/or highly complex enterprise-level systems.
Our R&D team will work with your IT staff to create an emergency solution to retrieve your data.
Client Attended Recovery
Your staff may transport your device to our facilities and remain with it during the recovery process so the chain of custody for the data remains assured.
Appropriate non-disclosure agreements and insurance certificates are required. Only available for emergency services.

Common causes of RAID data loss
Each RAID data recovery is unique, but there are a few common causes for data loss.
Whether on accident or completed with malicious intent, data loss from reformatting, reinstalling or volume overwrite can be conquered by expert data recovery engineers.
RAID systems can be affected by loss of power, power cycling and power surges causing loss of data. RAIDs running in a degraded state are especially vulnerable, as power issues can cause out-of-sync drives to be reincorporated into the array.
Mechanical issues and failed rebuilds
RAID systems are built to withstand individual drive failure, but once it runs in a degraded state, the workload of the remaining drives increases and so does the risk of additional drive failures. This can lead to failure of the RAID.
Fire, water, dirt and other contaminants from natural disasters can destroy a RAID array in an instant.
The different types of RAID
RAID configuration, including the number of disks used, determines the type. As a reminder, the RAID that stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks or Redundant Independent Disk Array is a storage solution that distributes data across multiple small disks that together form a single system. In addition to being less expensive, this device has a high level of performance and data security as RAID tolerates breakdowns better.RAID configurations

Frequently asked RAID recovery questions
We offer In-Lab, On-site and Client Attended recovery options for damaged devices where a software solution is not suitable. Contact us today to find out more.
Yes, we can. Our data recovery software can be used to recover lost or permanently deleted files from RAID 0, 5 or 6 drives. We also have in-house experts who may be able to recover data where other companies or software solutions cannot..
The price of recovery varies depending on a number of factors. What’s required to recovery the data? how quickly is the recovery needed? Do you require an on site visit? Has the drive been physically damaged? Contact us today and talk to one of our experts.
We offer RAID recovery services ranging from 12 hours to 10 days. Each customer’s requirements are different, so if time is a factor, don’t hesitate – choose Ontrack data recover experts.
You’ll be able to recover data even if the rebuilt operation has failed. Our recovery software does not need the controller card in order to run, to build virtual RAID, search deleted/lost RAID volumes and recover RAID data.
