Data Recovery and RAID Drives

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper addresses the recovery of information (user files) from hard drives which have been used in RAID systems. There is a history of successful data recovery efforts when working with drives from RAID systems. RAID systems are unique in that multiple drives can be used to store the data and as the 'R' in the acronym states they are 'Redundant'. This redundancy not only helps the system administrator or IT staff keep the systems running when a drive fails but also aids the data recovery engineer in recovery efforts when multiple drives fail. Simple mirror RAID (RAID 1) recoveries are far less complex than any other as the file structure(s) are intact on a complete physical volume.
