What to do when your RAID fails

dell poweredge data recovery

If you experience a RAID failure from your server do not perform the actions listed below.


  1.  Do not run any chkdsk options like FSCK, or CHKDSK. These utilities can corrupt or destroy your file system.
  2.  Do not try to rebuild the RAID array. Doing so can wipe out data needed to recover the data you are seeking.
  3.  Do not remove several failed drives at once hoping to reinitialize the array.
  4.  Do not lose the correct order of the drives in the array.
  5.  Do not try to repair any damaged drives yourself.
