Here is how to recover Apple RAID Card data

In this article you will find out:

  • how to work with Apple RAID Card
  • how to protect your data

Are you ready? Let's read!

RAID is a redundant array of independent disks

That is, multiple standard hard drives become a large storage engine that your operating system treats as a single unit. RAID tuning can occur at different levels with different performance characteristics. RAID 0 has good performance, but failure of at least one disk will damage the entire array.

RAID 1 uses a mirroring mechanism to display data, which in turn protects files from hardware failures.

RAID 0 + 1 represents a combination of the performance and security of data levels 0 and 1, but much less information can be stored.

RAID 3 uses a striping and redundancy mechanism with lower installation costs.

RAID 5 combines the characteristics of levels 0 and 1, and the speed of reading data is faster than writing data.

Apple RAID Card Exploitation

Apple RAID Utility is installed in the Utilities folder of the Applications folder. First, you connect the required number of hard drives to the computer's motherboard, then insert the Apple RAID into the PCI slot on the eligible XServe or Mac Pro , and then reboot the computer. This will allow the card to prepare a backup battery that stores the cached data.

This process is not that fast and will most likely take you a whole day. It is recommended that you use the RAID utility to set up the drives and start using them before the battery runs out of charge. To complete the migration, boot from the OS installation disk and use the RAID utility to convert the existing RAID set to an internal RAID configuration of some level.

If you want to create a RAID from scratch, you must boot the computer from the boot disk and run the RAID Utility. Using the Create RAID Set command, you can select a configuration and turn the disks into a RAID set that behaves like a unified storage engine.

RAID Card Data Safety

To recover data from an array and protect your Mac Pro RAID card, you need the unique DiskInternals RAID Recovery application. The application supports both manual and fully automatic detection of important parameters such as array level, RAID controller type, stripe size and disk order. The built-in and reliable recovery wizard will help you recover data for free, even if you are doing it for the first time or simply do not have sufficient technical skills.

Virtual disks can be used as local disks available in Windows 10 Explorer, etc. All major Windows limitations are ignored by the recovery process, which increases the recovery rate of lost data. This professional software supports Unicode filenames and multilevel folders.

Be sure to pay attention and carefully read the instructions on DiskInternals RAID Recovery before using it.

In general, working with the application is quite simple, of course, the first step is to download and install the utility.

When you first open the program, you will see a window asking you to use the Recovery Wizard. Be sure to accept this offer and follow the instructions on the monitor screen.

The automatically detected arrays will appear in a new dialog box; select the one you want.

Then select the array scan mode: full (deep scan) or fast (surface scan).

Once this process is complete, you will see the search results, which you can preview for free using the Preview in a new window feature.

This is where DiskInternals RAID Recovery ends its free trial capabilities. To save the recovered information to another drive, you need to purchase a license for this software and complete this process by exporting the data to the location of your choice.
