RAID 1 Data Recovery Services

Recover Data from RAID 1 Drives

RAID 1 uses a method known as “mirroring” to store identical data on two or more hard drives. This provides extreme redundancy, as the system essentially stores a local backup of the data. As such, the array will remain operational even if one of the two drives fails. As the system’s other drive houses identical data, total data loss will only happen when both of the two RAID drives break.

Despite it’s high redundancy, you should always seek help when you notice a RAID 1 drive has failed. With only one operational drive, your set no longer acts as a RAID and you’re at risk of losing all your data.

However, mirroring also enforces some limits onto RAID 1. The RAID mirror principle reduces writing speed as all data has to written two times, and the array’s storage space is always limited to that of its smallest member disk.

TTR’s RAID 1 data recovery services offer:

  • 100% Cost-Free Diagnosis
  • Data Verification Before Payment – You will receive a detailed list of all the data recovered from your RAID 1 set before you pay.
  • No Data, No Charge Policy – Should your data be unrecoverable, we’ll ship your hard drive back to you free of charge.
  • 24/7 Emergency Services – We know that data stored on a RAID array is vitally important, and we will get it back to you when you need it.
  • And more!

TTR Data Recovery has more than 14 years of experience in recovering RAID data from every kind of array, including RAID 1. Operators from private individuals to large corporations, U.S. government agencies, and NASA have placed their trust in TTR to recover RAID data from their systems.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Restore a RAID 1 Drive?

You can attempt to restore a RAID 1 drive using a data recovery software, but professional RAID 1 data recovery services will give more reliable results.

Is RAID 1 Good for Backup?

While a RAID 1 drive stores a backup of its own data, it is not a substitute for a robust external backup plan.

Can a RAID 1 Disk Be Read On Its Own?

Yes, in most configurations RAID 1 array disks can be read on their own.

What Happens If a Drive Fails in RAID 1?

With one failed hard drive, the RAID 1 array will work, but it no longer functions as a RAID and is vulnerable to data loss.
