What is RAID Redundancy?

A RAID system links multiple drives together. Each drive has components that mirror the functions of other parts of other drives. The storage functions (i.e. reading and writing) are then operating at multiple levels across multiple disks all at once, sometimes with certain functions occurring identically in different disks. This functionality allows for Fault Tolerance, or the ability for a drive to function even with drive elements that aren’t a working. These systems can even pair with HDDs and SDDs and mirror their operations allowing for further redundant functionality. By building in the safeguards and increasing Fault Tolerance the system is often safer, faster, and more powerful systems because of Redundancy. 

There are still chances for RAID systems to crash, regardless of their stability. Due to their complex nature, do not trust your RAID data recovery to novice.

Client Reviews

“We had a hard drive failure at work, and we didn't have a backup. We went to Ron for a free analysis and he verified there was an issue within 15 minutes. We've never had to deal with data recovery before, and he was willing to answer any questions. He got our data restored to a new drive within 2 days. Would definitely recommend.”
– Seth Allen
“Great company with fantastic service! My laptop was causing me terrible issues and I was terrified that all of the valuable data that was stored on it was gone forever. I went to several different companies for help with no solution to my problem. I finally found Carolina Data Recovery and they were able to recovery all of my data that I thought I had lost forever. Friendly staff and great recovery time. I highly recommend this company! ”
– C. Haynes
“Carolina Data Recovery is terrific. We lost a RAID 5 array with critical data and we needed to recover it quickly. We spoke with 3 different venders, and Ron made a big impression over the phone. We did not regret our choice. He worked with us on shipping and priority, and within three days of placing that call we had our data back in 3 days.. HIGHLY recommended. .”
