If you have deal with a lot of big data then you may have heard of RAID. It is a dedicated solution that can help users store a lot of data without having to spend too much on servers. But many of our users still ask what RAID is and how it can help. Recently, however, we have been getting questions regarding lost RAID data and whether it is even recoverable.
In this article, we are going to be looking at this issue in more detail. We begin with exactly what RAID is before moving on to how you can recover RAID data for free.
RAID is an acronym for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks which basically means that it a simple and logical way to put multiple disks together into a single array. The main goal here is that when these disks work together, they will provide the same speed and reliability that a more expensive solution would provide. The level of reliability and speed you will get will however depend on the type of RAID you are using.
One of the main advantages of using RAID is that they easily bypass the limited speed and physical limitations that hard drives often experience. There are different types of RAID to use including the following;
