RAID 10 Recovery
RAID 10 recovery process can be made with special software or manually. To recover the array manually, you should be able to reconstruct the data using your tech skills and the software for manual recovery. If you are not a tech-oriented person, it is better to use the software for automatic recovery. We offer RAID Recovery by Diskinternals that will restore your array.
About RAID 10 Array
The most complicated thing about the RAID 10 array is the fact that it consists of two RAID 1 arrays united in the RAID 0 array.
To protect your data, RAID 10 uses striping and mirroring at the same time. But in the striped sets, there is no parity, and if two disks from the same mirroring pair fail, the data cannot be restored. If only one disk fails, you can restore all the data with the special software.
RAID 10 Data Loss Causes
The most common causes for data loss from the RAID 10 array are the following:
- The array disk failed.
- Multiple disks failed.
- The rebuild process failed.
- An array disk or disks contained corrupted sectors.
- A disk was infected by the virus.
- The power supply failed.
- The RAID controller is corrupted.
- The data on the disk is corrupted.
- You accidentally deleted the data from an array.
The first and the most important advice in all of this cases is not to use an array for other data to avoid overwriting the information you need to restore. If you experience any of these issues, start the RAID 10 data recovery immediately.
RAID 10 Array: Recovering from a Two-Drive Failure
In case your type of RAID 10 contains two or more drives, the possibility for recovering data depends on which drives fail. The RAID group can be recovered if the failed drive ureis striped, but not if it is mirrored.
To find out which drives failed and recover them, simply recover RAID 10 with the Diskinternals RAID Recovery software.
