RAID recovery software is a type of data recovery software that enables recovery of data, reconstruction of drives and restoration of data in a RAID data backup environment.
It is purpose built to restore data, parity, configuration and other RAID environmental configurations exactly as they was before in that particular RAID infrastructure.
RAID recovery software typically requires a RAID reconstruction map to restore data in a RAID environment. Generally it has the ability to restore data on all different RAID settings, including RAID 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and others. It can recover data from hard disks, disk image files, NAS devices and hardware and software forms of RAID environments. Most RAID recovery software can scan and identify RAID maps and configuration from the existing infrastructure. However, if it fails to do so, it can also be manually configured with a RAID map and other controller and configuration parameters.
