Recovering Lost RAID Partition Data on Windows


Here, let’s begin with understanding the basic logic and principle behind a RAID disk, get to know what the reasons causing loss of RAID disks are and finally, let’s know how to recover lost RAID partition data on Windows.

A RAID partition, stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks, is a data storage technology that employs a technique of merging multiple Hard Disk drives or SATA drives into a logical disk in order to enhance performance and data redundancy.  In Windows systems, there are different RAID levels (RAID-0, RAID-1, RAID-3, RAID-4, RAID-5, RAID-6, RAID-10, etc.).

A RAID partition appears to be a single logical hard disk drive to the Windows operating system. It employs a technique called Disk Stripping, which partitions each drive’s storage space into different units varying from sectors 512 bytes up to several MBs. The stripes of all disks are interspersed and addressed in order. The different levels of RAID partitions offer different functionalities at various prices which can be chosen depending upon the requirements.

Actions leading to missing RAID partitions:

If one or more of the RAID partitions of your Windows computer are missing, you may be unable to do anything to figure out the reasons behind it and may be looking for a way to recover lost RAID 0 partition, and other RAID partitions on Windows and Mac. However, the actual reasons for this can be anything such as the RAID partition is corrupt, and hence operating system refuses to detect it. Described below are some issues in Windows computers, which may cause missing RAID partitions or a similar scenario:

  • Corruption in the header of the partition due to a virus or malware infection may cause the infected RAID partition to get disappeared leading you to recover lost RAID partition
  • Power surges or power related abnormalities while the partition is being read or write accessed can lead to corruption in the RAID partition, and hence the partition may no longer be visible
  • Hardware issues can cause corruption in a RAID partition or make it to get invisible, even if it is in healthy condition
  • Most of the RAID Disk drives function with a single controller and if it encounters any failure related to the controller, large single point failure of arrays is caused resulting partition loss or corruption
  • Any partition may get corrupted due to a large amount of bad sectors, or due to RAM errors, and hence it may no longer be visible or the Windows operating system fails to access it while booting
  • Missing RAID partitions can be due to errors in logical structure of the hard disk drive, causing one or more partitions to go missing
  • Reconfiguring the RAID disks due to any motive or while replacing the failed RAID disk incorrectly, may lead to partition loss and eventually to restore lost RAID partition
