RAID 6 is an extension of RAID 5, adding a parity block to provide extra redundancy and improve data protection. In RAID 5, the parity block is distributed across all drives in the array, allowing for the recovery of any one drive’s data from the remaining drives. However, the entire array can be lost if two drives fail simultaneously or during the same rebuild operation. 

 AT PITS Global Data Recovery Services, we specialize in RAID 6 data recovery to help businesses and individuals recover critical data from failed RAID 6 arrays. Our team of experienced engineers utilizes state-of-the-art tools and techniques to recover data from all types of RAID 6 arrays successfully. 

RAID 6 Level

RAID 6 addresses this issue by adding a second parity block, allowing data recovery from up to two simultaneous drive failures. This added redundancy significantly increases the reliability of the array and reduces the risk of data loss. Additionally, RAID 6 offers improved performance compared to RAID 5 in certain scenarios. 


For example, while RAID 5 can only handle one write operation simultaneously, RAID 6 can handle up to two simultaneous write operations. This is because, in RAID 6, the two parity blocks are stored on different drives, allowing for parallel writing. This can result in improved performance for applications that require frequent write operations.

Importance of RAID 6 Data Recovery

Despite its added redundancy and improved performance, RAID 6 arrays are not immune to failure. Like any other storage system, they are susceptible to issues such as physical damage, logical errors, and human error. When a RAID 6 array fails, it can result in critical data loss that can have severe consequences for businesses and individuals.

That’s where specialized RAID 6 data recovery services, like those offered by PITS Global Data Recovery Services, come into play. Our team of experts has the knowledge, experience, and tools required to recover data from failed RAID 6 arrays successfully. We understand the complex architecture of RAID 6 arrays and utilize specialized techniques to ensure the best possible outcome for our clients.

RAID 6 Failure and Data Loss Reasons

RAID 6 arrays may fail for several reasons, leading to data loss. One of the most common causes is physical damage to the drives in the array. This could be due to improper handling, exposure to extreme temperatures, or even natural disasters. Physical damage can render the drives unreadable, making accessing the data stored on them impossible.

Another common reason for RAID 6 failure is logical errors. These are errors in the software or firmware that control the RAID array. These errors could result from bugs in the RAID controller software, power surges that corrupt data, or issues with the operating system. Logical errors can cause the array to become inaccessible, leading to data loss.

Human error is another significant cause of RAID 6 failures. This could be due to accidental data deletion, incorrect RAID array configuration, or improper replacement of failed drives. Even with the redundancy provided by RAID 6, such mistakes can lead to data loss if not handled correctly.

Even though RAID 6 offers redundancy and can withstand the failure of two drives, simultaneous failure of more than two drives or a failure during the rebuild process can lead to a complete failure of the array. This can happen if the drives in the array are of the same age and have been subjected to the same wear and tear, increasing the likelihood of them failing around the same time.
Lastly, virus or malware attacks can also cause RAID 6 failures. Malicious software can corrupt data, delete files, or even take control of the RAID array, leading to data loss. Regularly updating antivirus software and practicing safe internet habits can help mitigate this risk.

In all these situations, professional data recovery services like PITS Global Data Recovery Services can assist in recovering data lost due to RAID 6 failures. Our specialists can often recover data that would otherwise be lost by employing advanced techniques and tools.

How We Recover Data from RAID 6 Arrays

At PITS Global Data Recovery Services, we follow an established procedure to recover data from RAID 6 arrays.  Our engineers are well-versed in handling various types of RAID 6 configurations and have experience recovering data from all major brands, including Dell, HP, IBM, and more. 

RAID 50 Drives

1. Diagnosis: The recovery process begins with a thorough diagnosis of the failed RAID 6 array to identify the cause of RAID the failure. This involves examining the physical drives for damage and testing them to assess their functionality.

2. Repair: If any physical damage is identified, our engineers will attempt to repair the drives to make them operational. This can involve replacing damaged parts or cleaning the drives to remove dust and other contaminants.

3. Imaging: Once the drives are operational, we create an exact copy (or image) of each drive. This ensures we have a backup of all data and allows us to work on the copies rather than the original drives, minimizing the risk of further data loss.

4. Reassembly: The next step is to virtually reconstruct the RAID array using the drive images. This involves determining the correct order of the drives and the RAID configuration parameters, such as the parity distribution and stripe size.

5. Data Extraction: Once the array is reconstructed, we can access the file system and recover the data. This involves copying the data to a new, healthy storage medium.

6. Quality Assurance: The final step is to verify that the recovered data is intact and accessible. We use specialized software to compare the recovered data with the original data on the drive images to ensure a successful recovery. 

We maintain strict confidentiality and security measures throughout the recovery process to protect your data. We understand the importance of the data stored on your RAID 6 array and are committed to providing the highest data recovery service. 

Data Security for RAID 6 Disk Recovery

At PITS Global Data Recovery Services, we prioritize the security of your data during the RAID 6 disk recovery process.

To be honest, I am super happy and satisfied with the delivered service by PITS Global. I have met so many people and read reviews of many others with their amazing experience at PITS. Firstly, I had ... a nice chat with my account manager, John, before shipping them the device. He even sent me a prepaid shipping label for my 4TB WD blue HDD)) Happy to say, I shipped then the device very next day and waited for ny evaluation results. So after 3 days, they sent me an email with the quote and a whole explanation of my hdd’s problem, so I can have a better understanding of their service. The pricing was fair and I decided to move with the standard procedure. Fast forward, after couple days, I got a call from Filip for the verification session. The final results were not what I expected because PITS could get ALL of my data without a missing file. These folks are the real professionals in their field and I am super blessed that I had a chance to work with them. High five for excellent results!)

I have been using my brother's 2TB WD HDD for a while but last month when It was connected to my laptop, we had a power surge which affected the device. I knew that he will be furious if he finds out, ... so I needed to move quick. A whilee ago, I already had a talk with PITS but never used them, so I believe this was the time. I explained them the situation, shipped the device, approved the recovery process and just waited, just waited.....But thankfully within only few days, Filip called me that they recovered everything, so it's time for a verification session. I jumped on my computer, had to see all of the files like nothing happened to the drive and approved the same second. Thanks to PITS, my brother never found out, so I am incredibly thankful for the job they have done

During a routine system update, our office’s 24TB RAID 6 array with operational data experienced a catastrophic failure. Thankfully, PITS Global Data Recovery in Los Angeles was recommended by a ... fellow technician. We had a good talk with Eric and moved forward to the recovery process after receiving our evaluation results. I personally was in constant in touch with them because of my stressful situation but they were incredibly professional and never let me down during any of our calls. I am putting 5 stars for their communication and another 5 stars for the successful recovery of the data. Losing this data could have definitely disrupted our tech startup's operations for months
