Repair corrupted RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 4, RAID 5, RAID 6 and many other types of arrays by connecting the disks to your computer.
Recover data from single-disk and multi-disk attached storage devices and NAS servers. Extract data from hard drives used in Synology, QNAP, ASUSTOR, Western Digital, Thecus, TerraMaster and Buffalo NAS systems.
Magic RAID Recovery by East Imperial Soft is designed to help users repair many types of corrupted RAID arrays and recover information from single-disk and multiple-disk volumes created in popular DAS and NAS devices as well as a wide range of RAID controllers manufactured by HP, Dell, Adaptec, IBM, Intel, Fujitsu, Silicon Image, LSI, ASMedia, Broadcom, and many others.
Rebuild and repair corrupted RAID arrays created in Windows, Linux, macOS and NAS devices;
Mount multiple-disk volumes if the original storage device or RAID controller is broken or unavailable;
Supports RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 4, RAID 5, and RAID 6;
Supports RAID 1E, RAID 5E, RAID 5EE and many types of composite arrays including RAID 01, RAID 10, RAID 50, and RAID 60.
Mount multi-disk volumes and RAID arrays regardless of the type of RAID controller;
Automatic detection of disk order and array configuration parameters;
Recover data from logical volumes spanned across multiple disks;
Recover data from corrupted single-disk volumes and JBOD arrays;
Extract files and folders from degraded and corrupted arrays without a lengthy rebuild/resilvering (for mirrored or checksum-based arrays).
Synology, QNAP, ASUSTOR, Western Digital, Thecus, TerraMaster, Buffalo and many other Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are readily available. However, the limited system resources and restrictive user interfaces of many pre-build NAS solutions may render the data inaccessible should one of the hard drives in multiple-disk volumes fail even for redundant arrays. Magic RAID Recovery makes it possible to save your files and folders by connecting the remaining disks directly to your computer and extracting the data without the lengthy and unreliable rebuildiesilvering.
A NAS device is not always about RAID or disk volumes spanned across multiple hard drives. Somes it's just a single disk or a JBOD array formatted in a file system not recognized by your computer. Magic RAID Recovery can help you extract your files and folders by automatically detecting the type of the file system and making the data accessible on your Windows PC. All major file systems used in Windows (NTFS, ReFS, FAT, exFAT), macOS (APFS, HFS+), Linux (Ext2/3/4, XFS, ReiserFS), and Unix (UFS 1/2) are supported.
Magic RAID Recovery was tested on hundreds of single-disk and multiple-disk storage configurations. The tool supports all types of RAID arrays including those managed by mdadm (all common NAS units), software and hardware RAID controllers. Magic RAID Recovery recognizes RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 4, RAID 5, and RAID 6 arrays including exotic configurations (RAID 1E, RAID 5E, RAID 5EE) and composite arrays (RAID 01, RAID 10, RAID 50, RAID 60). Single-disk volumes and JBOD arrays are also supported.
Depending on the type of the RAID array, it may tolerate one or more faulty hard drives. However, it is common for parity-based arrays to have another disk fail when recovering from a single-disk failure. You can reduce the possibility of the second failure by using Magic RAID Recovery to quickly recover the data instead of perfog the full resilvering. If the second disk had already failed, Magic RAID Recovery will apply complex algorithms to attempt recovering the files that are still accessible on the remaining disks. Needless to say that Magic RAID Recovery will recover 100% of the data if the remaining disks were enough for complete recovery.
While many controllers advertise support for the various RAID levels, the devil is in the detail. Manufacturers of the different RAID controllers have their own preferences on how to configure non-essential parameters of the array. As a result, one cannot make assumptions about the stripe size or parity. Magic RAID Recovery supports a wide range of RAID controllers including those built into Intel-based motherboards, as well as those manufactured by HP, Dell, Adaptec and many others, including server models.
From to , a NAS device or RAID controller may throw the disk out for various reasons, immediately putting the array into degraded state. In certain cases, re-adding the disk only leads to the same problem repeated after many hours of resilvering. The disk may be perfectly readable outside the enclosure with longer than expected outs (which is often the case for SMR drives), or there might be just a few bad blocks not affecting the majority of the data. Magic RAID Recovery allows remounting such arrays and extracting the data without the lengthy synchronization.
A perfectly healthy RAID might be unreadable because of corrupted file system structures. Rebuilding or resilvering such arrays would be a waste of , while inaccessible volumes can be repaired by reconstructing their file system structures. Magic RAID Recovery can check the volume and safely extract the original files and folders.
Fully automated performance has its benefits, but it has its drawbacks. If you are an advanced user and know your RAID, or if you work in a data recovery lab, you may achieve a higher recovery rate by manually specifying the correct RAID parameters. Should you know only some characteristics of the RAID array, Magic RAID Recovery will help identify the remaining parameters automatically.
