  • Any method to recover RAID 0 Data?

    I have Dell T610 Server and configured RAID 0 on two disks. Unfortunately my one drive got dead I mean fully dead! I need to recover data from other disk, Is there any way to recover data from other disk? Please it's important!

    The data is split across both drives. Unlike some other forms of RAID there is no parity information stored on the disks in a RAID 0 array so recovering data when one disk fails is not possible. Do you have backups?

      If you didn't back it up, it's gone. RAID 0 might be fast, but it has no fault tolerance. Where a server has 2 discs, run them in a RAID 1 config (mirror), so that both discs are identical. If one fails, the other carries on while you get a replacement for the first.
