We have been getting a lot of calls about RAID data recovery lately. As more and more computer manufacturers utilize RAID systems in home computers, RAID failures rise exponentially. It used to be that RAID data recovery calls that we received were large companies, that were running massive multi drive arrays. It stands to reason that a large company can afford the costs associated with RAID data recovery.
RAID Data Recovery Costs
To most consumers, the costs for RAID data recovery will seem rather high, but since the majority of RAID systems that we are seeing are RAID 0 which are 2 drives that are “striped” or combined to create 1 volume. This increases performance, but is also dangerous. The fact is if a RAID 0 fails, both drives must be repaired to recover the data. That is why RAID data recovery is expensive to a consumer.
