RAID 3 Recovery

Definition - What does RAID 3 Recovery mean?

RAID 3 recovery is the process of recovering and restoring data in a RAID 3 infrastructure.

It utilizes both automated and manual measures that enable a RAID 3-type array to recover data and operations to last known or best configuration after a failure or error.

Techopedia explains RAID 3 Recovery

RAID 3 recovery generally requires specialized RAID recovery software. Typically, RAID 3 recovery is required due to a failed RAID controller, rebuilding problems, data corruption and deletion as well as other causes. RAID 3 recovery works by reversing the XOR equation of the parity data. The XOR calculation is achieved through the user data and is stored on a parity drive. Using this XOR equation, any data on any drive can be recovered.
