RAID 10 Explained

RAID recovery:

Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks, abbreviated as RAID, undergo recovery processes when needed. RAID recovery is a precious tool for every RAID array user. It recognizes configurations of RAID 0, 1, etc. and JBOD. It can support manual and automatic detection of important parameters like type of array, type of RAID controller, stripe size, disk order, etc. hence it is possible to reconstruct an array from the hard disks that are available.

What is Raid 10?

Raid 10 is also known as RAID 1+0 and it makes use of at least four drives. It number of additional drives used by it should be even. In case four drives are in use initially a pair of drives is mirrored as in RAID 1 and further striped as in RAID 0. The total storage capacity of RAID 10 is the sum of the storage capacities of all the drives in the array and then dividing by two.

RAID 10 is typically very expensive as it uses a very little capacity of all the drives. But its performance is an improvement over the other RAID levels. Mirroring leads to the tolerance of the failure of one drive. Servers demanding high performance along with the Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices require RAID 10.

The initial stages of the RAID 10 Recovery process demands the identification of the cause of RAID 10 failure. The various data recovery technicians offer you help in order to determine the reason for the failure.

What is to be done in case of RAID 10 failure?

The following actions should be undertaken in case of RAID 10 failure:

  • You must turn of the RAID 10 device immediately so that no extra data can be written to the array.
  • Document the events that occur serially causing RAID 10 failure. In case you remove the drives from the array make sure you label them properly.
  • The final action is to contact the raid data recovery team immediately so that you can get help for raid 10 data recovery.

What are the common causes of RAID 10 data loss?

Common causes of RAID 10 data loss are as follows:

  • RAID 10 Controller failure.
  • Corrupted, lost or damaged RAID Array configuration.
  • Formatting done accidentally.
  • Intermittent drive failure.
  • Drive markings are done wrongly.
  • Errors rebuilt.
  • Incompatible drive addition.
  • Conflict of hardware.

Why do we need RAID Partition Recovery?

The physical disk when divided into a number of logical disks namely C:, D:, E:, etc. they become volumes. A RAID Partition Recovery becomes successful only when you know the sizes and the locations of the volumes that go missing. The filesystem recovery algorithm does its work efficiently when the disk is partitioned on a single logical disk. In case multiple disks are involved the situation becomes very complicated as multiple volumes disappear simultaneously.

Partition recovery recovers lost, damaged, deleted and reformatted partitions, information and virtual disks. Corrupted MR or MBR is no more a cause for your worries and you now have a solution for your data raid recovery.
