RAID 6 Data Recovery Services

Recover Data from RAID 6 Drives

RAID 6 – also known as double parity RAID – is a development of the RAID 5 array. They are functionally very similar, but RAID 6 provides higher reliability than its sibling configuration.

RAID 6 achieves its high reliability by making use of double parity, according to its name. With this method, the configuration uses block-level striping to write two parity blocks on each of its member drives.

In the case of data loss or corruption, the system can use the stored parity data to compare against the damaged data and rebuild itself. As such, you could say RAID 6 performs a minor form of RAID recovery on itself.

However, the increased security does come at a cost. When comparing a RAID 6 array to its brother RAID 5, the former has to major drawbacks.

The first is its lower read/write speed. Due to a RAID 6 array having to write two blocks of parity data on its drives, it cannot compete in write speed with RAID 5, which has only one parity block.

The second major drawback is storage capacity. Storing the parity date eats up hard drive space, and therefore RAID 6 can’t provide capacity similar to RAID 5.

Finally, as RAID 6 requires at least four hard drives, it can be fairly expensive to set up. As such, it can’t be called a strict improvement to RAID 5. RAID 6 is most suitable for file and application servers.

Raid Stacks

While RAID 6 data is fairly secure due to the array being able to handle two cases of hard drive failure at once, it is not bulletproof. For example, incorrect operation or a power surge could cause three drives to fail at once.

In such a case, RAID 6 data recovery processes are necessary to prevent total data loss. TTR Data Recovery is well placed to help you recover your data when you encounter RAID 6 failure.

Types of RAID 6 Failures We Accept

TTR technicians have successfully recovered data from RAID sets owned by private users all the way to those used in NASA space shuttles. We are familiar with all forms of RAID array failure.

While it is tolerant of many failure types, other forms can still cripple a RAID 6 array and require extensive data recovery. RAID 6 is – despite its redundancy – susceptible to data loss brought on by total system failure.

Among the types of RAID 6 failure TTR Data Recovery accepts are:

Hardware and Software Issues

  • RAID Controller Failure
  • Power Surge
  • Fire and Moisture Damage
  • Overheating
  • Physically Damaged Drives
  • Disk Surface Contamination
  • Read/Write Head Crash
  • Computer Viruses
  • Malware Infection
  • Circuitry Failure
  • Data Corruption
  • File System Errors

Human Errors

  • Accidental File Deletion
  • Improper Handling
  • Accidental Hard Drive Removal

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Drives Can You Lose in RAID 6?

Due to the double parity included in the configuration, RAID 6 can manage two failed hard drives while remaining operational.

How Safe is RAID 6?

RAID 6 has high redundancy and fault tolerance thanks to its dual parity, making it a generally safe and reliable mass data storage option.

Which is Better - RAID 5 or RAID 6?

RAID 6 is superior to RAID 5 in redundancy and reliability, but RAID 5 provides faster read/write speeds and has more storage capacity per member drive. As such, neither is strictly better than the other and the choice comes down to the intended application.

How Does RAID 6 Work?

A RAID 6 array functions similarly to RAID 5, utilizing block-level striping across all member drives. Unlike RAID 5, RAID 6 writes two parity blocks on each disk, enhancing security and resistance to failure.
