World-Class RAID 1 Recovery Services
PITS Global Data Recovery Services specializes in all RAID arrays and their data recovery. We can recover any RAID configuration within the shortest time possible. Our company meets all required security & management protocols. Thus, you can rest assured that your essential data will remain safe and confidential with us.
When small businesses and companies reach a certain size and volume, they usually turn to high-performing, data-intensive RAID servers. This way, they can efficiently store, process, and translate terabytes upon terabytes of data.
RAID 1 has increased fault tolerance and data protection over RAID 0 arrays. Still, RAID 1 mirrored volumes are prone to failed drives and lost data – fortunately, a lot less. However, when the signs of drive failure appear, do not waste time or try to recover it on your own. Call data recovery service and speak with a professional to save your valuable data.
Our offices utilize ISO Class 10 cleanroom facilities, the latest data recovery tools, and a set of industry-certified data recovery engineers. This is why we can recover data from disk drives dealing with physical damage, logical/mechanical hardware failure, or both.
Other Advantages of Our Data Recovery Service include:
RAID 1 Disk Failure
The data is mirrored on RAID 1 arrays to member drives. While RAID 0 is ditching “disk redundancy” (and better fault tolerance) for more efficient data processing speeds, RAID 1 servers use pairs of disks that read and copy the same data two times over. These “mirrored” disks give you a “backup to your backup” if any disk failure occurs.
Whereas RAID 0 servers are recommended most for high-speed file transactions like online gaming and investing, RAID 1 servers go to the other end of the spectrum. RAID 1 array is used in “mission-critical” databases where data loss is not an option.
Law firms, hospitals, banks, and government agencies have used the RAID 1 array configuration for redundancy purposes. The data redundancy creates a safer environment for reading and writing data with multiple disks. If one of your mirrored drives fails, the other has all the data backed up, saving you all the stress and uncertainty.
This feature is essential for any business that cannot risk a byte of lost data during an unruled event.
Note: If you already faced data loss, you can order our data recovery services. After we deliver your data recovered, we will also provide you with a backup plan so you never experience data loss again. Your vital data will be backed up each night to external and offsite data storage devices with this formalized backup system.
Pros of RAID 1 Arrays
- One of the safest RAID arrays available due to its “data redundancy”
- Can withstand single-disk failure
- Its simplicity makes it easier to troubleshoot if damage occurs
- High read performance
Cons of RAID 1 Arrays
- The slowest write-speed time Compared to all other RAID types. This means that saving data to the disk can take far longer than expected
- Low input-output performance. The drive has a lower data-saving “horsepower” than other RAID arrays
- Expenses. Multiple disk arrays are required to achieve “redundancy”. This can double the RAID array cost compared to RAID systems that use striping and parity over mirroring techniques
RAID 1 HDD Failure
Our company can cover any kind of damage to RAID 1. We perform RAID 1 data recovery services for hard drives infected with malware to hard drives melting from overheating. Our data retrieval technicians can quickly form the RAID 1 data rescue and save it in most data loss scenarios.
RAID arrays are highly intricate devices with components that function at the millimeter level. Thus, even their systems are susceptible to physical hardware damage. Flooding, dropping, or accidental smashing of the device can damage component pieces inside the system, requiring a complete rebuild of the RAID 1 configuration.
Fortunately, our RAID 1 data recovery service package includes the rebuild option as well. Some causes of physical RAID array damage are:
- Overheating and melted component pieces
- Accidental dropping or smashing of RAID array server
RAID 1 Controller Failure
When some part of the motherboard or operating system malfunctions, it can spell doom for your RAID array. Input/output access can be blocked by damaged chips or broken firmware pieces inside your RAID array. If so, it won’t have any storage power to initiate reading and writing functions. Other common causes of RAID controller fail, and degradation due to logical or software malfunctions are:
- Power Outings Or Surges (e.g., accidentally unplugged cables)
- RAID Controller Failure
- Multiple-Disk Failure (rare & unlucky, but defeats the point of data redundancy)
- File System Corruption Due To Bad Sectors
- Failed RAID Rebuilds (an attempt to replace a failed disk in the system goes wrong)
We used in-house developed data recovery software to recover any kind of corrupted and damaged RAID 1 logical volumes. The software we use has many helpful RAID recovery functionalities which help us recover your data in the shortest time possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
RAID 1 data recovery is the process of retrieving lost or inaccessible data from a RAID 1 configuration, which is a type of RAID that uses mirroring to provide data redundancy.
The most common causes of data loss in a RAID 1 setup include disk failure, corruption of the file system, human error, software bugs, and power outages.
If you notice that data is missing or inaccessible, or if your computer or server is no longer able to recognize the RAID 1 configuration, it may be necessary to perform a data recovery.
In many cases, it is recommended to seek the help of a professional data recovery service.
Attempting DIY data recovery from a RAID 1 configuration can increase the risk of further data loss or corruption, as well as the risk of damaging the disk or the data stored on it.
The cost of data recovery from a RAID 1 configuration can vary widely depending on the cause of the data loss and the complexity of the recovery process.
The time it takes to recover data from a RAID 1 configuration can vary widely depending on the cause of the data loss, the size of the data, and the complexity of the recovery process. On average, a professional data recovery service can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to complete a RAID 1 data recovery.
To prevent data loss in a RAID 1 configuration, it is important to regularly backup important data, implement a robust backup strategy, and keep all hardware and software components up-to-date and well-maintained. Additionally, it is also recommended to monitor the status of the RAID 1 configuration and to replace any failed disks in a timely manner.
