How to recover RAID

RAID recovery is needed when the array cannot be mounted as a whole. In this case, one needs to reconstruct RAID parameters from array member disks alone.

Earlier, you had to either look for some expensive RAID recovery software, or send the RAID to the data recovery lab which was even more expensive.

Now you have a possibility to recover the RAID parameters for free using ReclaiMe Free RAID Recovery software which allows you to determine parameters for a RAID 0, RAID 0+1 or 1+0, and RAID 5, then import the array parameters into ReclaiMe and recover data.

ReclaiMe Free RAID Recovery works with both physical disks and disk image files of the array member disks. ReclaiMe Free RAID Recovery determines the following parameters:

  • Start offset on the disk at which the RAID data starts,
  • Block size,
  • Disk order,
  • Parity position and rotation for RAID 5,
  • Synchronicity/asynchronicity for RAID 5.

Just like ReclaiMe, ReclaiMe Free RAID Recovery is as easy-to-use as possible and utilizes advanced RAID reconstruction algorithms. It allows you to save the RAID recovery results in one of the following ways:

  • Run ReclaiMe to recover data.
  • Save layout to file (RAID XML).
  • Create the array image file.
  • Write array to disk.
  • Get detailed instructions on how to use the results with other data recovery software.

ReclaiMe can now work in the RAID recovery mode. RAID recovery mode can be activated in two ways:
