We have developed unique solutions that can recover data on RAID 0
Recover files RAID 0
RAID 0 is based on the synchronised distribution of information among several disks, in other words, the system causes all stored files to be written to all disks at the same time.
The RAID system is designed to increase performance and security when writing and reading data on a disk.
The controller in RAID 0 divides all files into multiple blocks (stripes) on all disks in the array, the data is written sequentially. This makes RAID 0 extremely fast, as it distributes the writing and reading of the stored data among several disks.
RAID 0 is the most performant RAID levels, besides not compromising the storage capacity of the disks used, at this level only 2 disks are required for operation.
But, even if there is a large increase in performance, RAID 0 is not fault tolerant, if any of the disk fails the stored data can be affected and become unavailable.
Why Digital Recovery?
Digital Recovery works in data recovery since 1998, with time and experience we have specialized in data recovery in RAID systems. We have a division exclusively dedicated to meet cases of high complexity, as is the case of data loss on RAID 0.
This business unit is known as Data Center Recovery Services and specializes in recovering RAID (0, 1, 10, 5, 50, 6, 60, vRAID, RAID-Z and JBOD), Storages (NAS, DAS and SAN) with iSCSI Host Channel, SAS and FC (Fibre Channel), Databases (Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, Firebird, DB2, Informix, Caché and Btrieve) and virtual machines (Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware, Citrix XenServer, Proxmox and Acrópolis).
We have the ability to act in cases where other data recovery companies have classified as irreversible, we can do this because we have a unique and proprietary technology that we call Tracer.
With Tracer we generate differentiated results in data recovery in large datacenters, we can execute this solution remotely, in most cases, thus drastically reducing the time of the recovery process.
We are a Brazilian company with a branch in Germany. Other partnerships for information exchange and technology sharing are made between companies in countries such as the United States, Russia and Ukraine.
In addition to providing services to governments, financial institutions and small, medium and large companies, Digital Recovery also provides services to other companies that also operate in the area of data recovery.
In case your data is stored on any device located outside the countries where we have laboratories, we have the technology that enables us to assess and recover your data remotely. If this is your case, please consult our department 24×7.
If you require, we can also provide you with a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) in a language of your choice. It is important to mention that our NDA is already adapted to GDPR. Please speak to one of our experts about this.
Being fully aware of the existing levels of pressure and urgency in data centre and cloud computing environments, we also offer a 24×7 emergency service. This type of service provides our customers with the possibility of performing services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Soon after a new wave of LockBit 2.0 ransomware attacks, many companies saw their business come to a standstill because of data locked out of encryption. Here is a case of decryption for one of them.
We received a contact from a company that said it had suffered an attack and was unable to continue its activities. When they arrived at their offices after the weekend, they realised that a large part of their data was inaccessible.
One of the largest River Logistics companies in Latin America contacted us to decrypt files after a Quantum Ransomware attack.
There has been a wave of attacks by the Quantum group targeting several different companies. Small, medium and large companies have been targeted. In this case a large Fluvial logistics company in Argentina was the victim.
What our clients say about us
"We had a serious problem after a power failure of a NAS server in Raid 5. I immediately contacted DIGITAL RECOVERY. After a few days of hard work the problem was solved."
"One of our raid servers had stopped. After several attempts without solving the problem we found DIGITAL RECOVERY and 5 hours later, at 4am, the data was recovered."
"We appointed DIGITAL RECOVERY in a special case (of data loss) in a raid 5 storage. Digital Recovery was able to recover 32 million files so our customer was extremely satisfied.”
"Without a doubt the best data recovery company in Latin America. The contact Digital Recovery will always be saved on my phone, because inevitably I will need again."
"The quality of the service is excellent. The attention given to customer service is gratifying and the feedback we receive reassures us that we can trust the work and dedication."
"Great company, they saved me from a big problem! I recommend, fast service, my thanks to the Digital Recovery team for the attention and quick solution to the problem! Show!"
"Second time that I count with the agility and professionalism of the Digital Recovery team, they are very experienced and agile. I recommend to all"
"They helped me recover some data that I had thought was lost. I had a great experience with the team for their calmness, agility and transparency."
Answers from our experts
What are the main reasons that cause data loss on RAID 0?
RAID 0 has no redundancy and this leaves stored data vulnerable, as any disk that stops working prevents access to files. Here are the main issues that can lead to data loss on RAID 0.
- Loss of Array data;
- Deletion or change in the RAID controller settings;
- Exclusion or change of the Array volumes;
- Loss of the sequential order of the disks.
- Deletion or corruption of data on partitions;
- Formatting drives or partitions;
- Overwriting information;
- Formatting followed by reinstallation of systems;
- Problems booting the system;
- Dissynchronization of data from one HD to another.
- Burns or problems occurring on the RAID controller;
- Burnout of electronic circuits;
- Burn in of reading heads;
- Breakdown of reading heads;
- Damage to the disk surface (HDD platters);
- Bad Blocks – Defective Sectors;
- Natural wear of the media;
- Scratches and scratches surface;
- Scratches and scratches serious;
- Braking of the motor bearings;
- Motor burn-out;
- Problems caused by falls or impacts;
- Problems related to Servomechanism area;
- Firmware problems;
- Problems with water or other liquids.
Will replacing the RAID controller bring my data back?
RAID controller is a hardware specifically designed for processing information from the volumes and partitions of an Array. The controller board has among others two main functions: The first of them is to perform all the calculations regarding the data processing and storage of the parity information in the Arrays. The second function is to store the configuration data of the arrays created and managed by the controller itself.
A common technique used by the controllers to protect themselves from problems, is to store the data of the managed arrays in reserved areas in the own disks that it uses to create the arrays.
This way, if a controller presents problems, a new controller can be installed and then execute the necessary commands to read the configuration data stored in the disks of the array avoiding data loss. Normally this region of the disk is known as the DACStore. If in fact the problem is in the controller, because of the protections previously reported, it is very likely that the environment will return to work normally. However, if there is a problem with the information recorded on the disks, the data will remain inaccessible.
Can I pre-select the most critical files to be recovered first?
Yes, you can send us a list of the main files and folders that need to be recovered urgently so we can focus on those specific files and recover them as a priority.

What you need to know
What are the differences between RAID 0 and RAID 1?
While RAID 0 is based on synchronised distribution across all disks in the array, with a focus on performance, RAID 1 has the main focus on data security by applying disk mirroring, i.e. all data stored on one disk is written to another.
Can I recover data when two or more RAID disks fail simultaneously?
Certainly it is possible, as there are techniques available to reverse this type of scenario, as in most projects, we can safely change the disk status from defunct to online, in order to clone in isolation as soon as possible, the sectors attached to this problematic disk.
How much does RAID 0 data recovery service cost?
Because of the many variables involved in a RAID data recovery project, it is not possible to know the final value without performing a detailed evaluation. The purpose of this assessment is to determine:
- Level of complexity and urgency
- Real possibility of recovery
- Time to perform the service
