Techopedia Explains RAID Recovery Software

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.
