RAID 6 Failure
Nowadays, many companies, self-employed individuals, and creative hobbyists with terabytes of data (e.g., multimedia files) use RAID 6 systems. Active usage of RAID 6 in businesses and advanced home computing makes it necessary for data recovery services, putting our Certified ISO Class 10 Cleanroom and industry-certified technicians to work.
We repaired thousands of RAID 6 failed drives recovered over the past few years. Thus, our engineers are experienced enough to recover a device from any data loss scenario in the shortest timeframe possible.

RAID 6 Disk Failure Compared
RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) 6 arrays use parity technology as in RAID 5 arrays. They are a little more advanced and mature in their development.
Besides, they are safer and more reliable. RAID 6 arrays are at least as powerful, if not more so, than their little sibling. RAID 6 arrays utilize “parity” disk organization, just like RAID 5 arrays.
However, RAID 6 is the next generation of technology. It has a “dual parity” feature that spreads data across 4 to 32 drives instead of sixteen. By adding a second “parity data” block in each disk, RAID 6 achieves a level of fault tolerance not matched by its younger counterpart.
The annual failure rate of a RAID 6 system is arguably lower than, let’s say, a RAID 0 setup. Thus, while functioning similarly to a RAID 5 array, RAID 6 brings a level of fault tolerance that the other one cannot match. As a result, RAID 6 systems ensure no data gets lost after a catastrophic failure. While some feel RAID 5 has enough safeguards for data loss, those who want to be extra careful go with the “dual parity” RAID 6 array.
We would rank RAID 6 arrays somewhere between RAID 5 and RAID 10 (1+0) in terms of balancing cost, data safety, and efficiency. It is safer than RAID 5 but more expensive. Also, it is less potent than RAID 10 but arguably just as fault-tolerant.
For smaller businesses with modestly-sized configurations, many can afford it opt for RAID 6 or RAID 5. If the setup reaches a larger size, we may start advocating for a RAID 10 array.
Regardless of fault tolerance and performance, RAID 6 is the more secure, less speedy version of RAID 5.
Causes of Failures in RAID 6 Arrays
While more expensive and potentially slower, RAID 6 arrays are considered the superior RAID level to RAID 5 systems. However, like with all machines, there is an inherent failure rate that comes with mass production. Thus, we have recovered even RAID 6 arrays crash from logical disk failures.
Our engineers are experienced in performing RAID 6 data recovery by rebuilding the entire array. However, unforeseen physical damage is usually the main concern with a RAID 6 array. We recommend doing regular health checks and setting up alarms to receive notifications about failures. This way, when one drive in your RAID 6 array fails, you will notice the slightly hampered performance and warning signs.
Note: if you experienced RAID 6 failure, you can contact our customer service to apply for an evaluation. Additionally, after we recover your lost data, we will provide you with a backup plan. This way, we ensure that you never face such an issue anymore.
Again, just because RAID 6 has excellent fault tolerance does not mean you should use it as your backup disk.
Risk-Free Device Evaluation
We offer technical assessment and overnight shipping services for failed RAID 6 arrays, as we do with all storage devices.
Additionally, we offer consultations after we recover lost data. This feature is convenient for companies struggling with which RAID array to use (and how to back it up).
There we discuss how to set up a backup system for your company data expertly and copy critical data to external hard drives. Besides this, we will make sure that the backup meets data safety protocols that do not interfere with your day-to-day operations.
Emergency RAID 6 Recovery Services
If your case is extremely time-sensitive and you need access to lost data immediately, we can recover your device in 8-48 hours. We offer emergency services for businesses that cannot wait for a long time to get the data back. Contact us at (888) 611 0737 or fill in the request form, and we will respond as quickly as possible!
Frequently Asked Questions
RAID 6 data recovery is the process of retrieving lost or inaccessible data from a RAID 6 configuration, which is a type of RAID that uses two levels of parity for data redundancy.
To prevent data loss in a RAID 6 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 6 configuration and to replace any failed disks in a timely manner.
The advantages of using a RAID 6 configuration include increased data redundancy, improved data reliability, and the ability to withstand the failure of two disk drives without data loss.
RAID 6 is generally considered to be more reliable than RAID 1, as it provides a higher level of data redundancy and is able to withstand the failure of two disk drives without data loss.
A RAID 6 configuration is designed to handle the failure of up to two disk drives. When a disk failure occurs, the RAID 6 configuration continues to function using the remaining disks, and the failed disk can be replaced without causing data loss.
Yes, a RAID 6 configuration can be used for both storage and data protection, as it provides a high level of data redundancy and can withstand the failure of multiple disk drives.
Yes, a RAID 6 configuration can be used with different disk sizes, but it is important to ensure that all disk drives are of similar speed and capacity.
It is not necessary to use a RAID controller for a RAID 6 configuration, as the RAID 6 functionality can be provided by software. However, using a hardware RAID controller can improve performance and simplify the management of the RAID 6 configuration.
The recommended number of disk drives for a RAID 6 configuration depends on the desired level of data redundancy and the capacity requirements, but typically 4 or more disk drives are used.
Yes, a RAID 6 configuration can be used for high-performance applications, as it provides a high level of data redundancy and can withstand the failure of multiple disk drives. However, it may not be the best choice for applications that require the highest levels of performance, as the overhead of the RAID 6 parity calculation can impact performance.
