Have you ever come up with a huge amount of data being lost from your RAID system and decided to do data recovery from RAID? Only profesional Data Recovery Labs can help you get back the data through your crashed RAID collection with a Data Recovery.

RAID stands for Versatile Collection of Independent Disks / Inexpensive Disks and was established in the 1970s as a common data processing technique. RAID is among the most commonly used strategies for disk visualization that lets us handle several disks in one location. This lets us avoid data duplication and duplicity while at the same time enhancing overall system performance. While the device helps one to logically combine multiple disks together, it may also suffer from unexpected data loss

To all RAID systems and modules, NicoGroup Data Recovery provides exceptional RAID recovery services at your location in Belfast and across Northern Ireland UK, in-house and on-site. We can recreate and retrieve information from every NAS raid build, like RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 4, RAID 5, RAID 6 Hard Disk Drive or system, and even beyond Raid devices such as Drobo Storage. Proudly delivering customer support on Face Value for over 15 years. We don’t outsource our job and guarantee a No Data No Charge. Free mail and return service available.

Let your Data Restored with our RAID Data Recovery Service today. Server Raid Recovery commences from £349 incl. VAT for a single drive but can cost much more depending how many drives have failed and hoe complex the RAID system is.

What you have to do when RAID fails

Continuing to operate a damaged RAID device will severely harm or disable the network as a whole. Does the Attack contain strange behavior patterns? The following three-step walkthrough should help secure your data from a potential loss:

Don’t Panic! Switch off the device or server to minimize the risk of massive damage.

Should not trick, or attempt to fix — there is a good risk that some DIY repair would make the problem worse.

Call the NicoGroup team 24/7 to figure out what we can do, by phone, email, or talk. And we’ll be glad to have a reliable RAID data recovery service for you.

Types of RAID Server Setups

There are two distinct ways to handle RAID on a server. One system utilizes a specialized piece of system equipment, while the other manages software-level RAID practices.

Hardware RAID

Hardware RAID includes the drives link to a RAID controller card inserted into the server’s motherboard. Hardware RAID is affiliated with an early greater cost owing to the requirement of hardware, but the configuration involved is extremely easy, as the controller handles everything. This provides optimum efficiency, as the loading is done by the RAID card instead of the server, giving fewer burdens when creating backups and restore results.

Software RAID

On the other side, software RAID control has a little cost but you still need to understand how to install it. As drives are attached to the server motherboard without some kind of RAID controller, the Operating System program handles the setup. This is the cheaper alternative; just link the drives and install the OS. You are perhaps limited to the level of RAID your Operating system can support. Data performance and server resources will be used, so the dedicated hosting setup should be vigilant not to slow down.

List of common RAID server levels

Here are some common levels of RAID used and for which we have been providing RAID Data Recovery Services:


In this setup, the minimum number of drives required is 2. The RAID 0 setup involves a method to gather and analyses data from multiple drives, termed disk striping. The main aim of this is to improve efficiency because several drives are immediately used. This enhances the effectiveness of Input / Output significantly. The main problem with these types of RAID is there is no redundancy of data, so if one drive is damaged then it will impact the general array. For sensitive devices RAID 0 is not suggested.


This kind of RAID is using disk mirroring to develop redundancy of the data. This is the simplest way to build data redundancy which is the most cost-effective with just two necessary hard drives. Data is concurrently transferred on several disks, and the dedicated servers will not suffer any lack of data if one crashes. It is necessary to mention that the server’s storage capability is split in half in this setup. The main drawback of RAID 1 is a performance significant reduction owing to the necessary resources to duplicate the data and, the input/output efficiency is not fantastic as it needs stripping and parity.


Finally, the RAID 5 level depends on block-level stripping, with details on parity in each move. For businesses such as web hosting demanding high efficiency and redundant data the most widely accepted RAID configuration is RAID 5. RAID 5 needs 3 hard drives and will operate with 1 broken disk. If a drive fails in this setup, you’ll notice a performance reduction. In order to establish consistency and improved efficiency, it uses data parity (extra bits applied to data to ensure the data is intact) and data striping (the method of segmenting data through several volumes). There is also a hot-swappable RAID5 setup which implies drives can be substituted without needing to restart the computer.


This setup is similar to RAID5 thus it requires an extra block of parity which ensures even if two hard drives fail in your network, storage operations would proceed as if nothing occurred. The drawback of RAID6 clearly is that this system needs external hard drives.


Its architecture is the best choice for any kind of sensitive application, particularly databases. This level uses four disks at least, as well as the blocks are mirrors but also striped. This is also known as RAID 1 + 0 as it blends the Input/output advantages of a RAID 0 with RAID 1 hardware failure security.
