RAID 1 is a data storage technology that creates an exact copy or mirror of data onto several hard drives. RAID 1 guarantees redundancy and enhanced reliability if one of the drives fails. Nonetheless, despite this level of protection, there may still be occasions where RAID 1 data recovery is required. Our team of specialists in the UK is well-equipped and adept at recovering data from RAID 1 systems.

Can RAID 1 Data be Recovered?

RAID 1 data can be successfully recovered, thanks to the mirroring feature inherent in RAID 1 configurations. Since data is duplicated across two or more disks, failure in one disk does not mean data loss, as an identical copy exists on the other disk(s).

Our team utilises specialised software and techniques to access, diagnose, and recover data from the disks in RAID 1 arrays. However, the extent of the damage to the failed drive and the timely initiation of the recovery process can influence its success.  Therefore, seeking professional help promptly is crucial to maximise the chances of full data recovery.

RAID 1 Data Recovery

RAID 1 Failure

While RAID 1 is a fault tolerant system, there are still potential causes of data loss that can necessitate RAID 1 data recovery services. Some common reasons include physical damage to the hard drives due to power surges or mechanical failures, accidental deletion or formatting of the drives, and software or operating system errors.

Additionally, human error or intentional acts of sabotage can also result in data loss in RAID 1 systems. Our experts have the necessary skills and tools to manage all these scenarios, ensuring a successful recovery of your important data.

Common Causes of RAID 1 Data Loss

Controller Malfunction

RAID controller failure can result in data loss or corruption, impacting RAID array management.

Missing Partition

Partition information loss or corruption can make data inaccessible, even if the physical drives are intact.

Hard Drive Failures

While RAID 1 can tolerate a single drive failure, simultaneous failures can result in data loss.

Accidental Reconfiguration

Mistakenly reconfiguring a RAID array can lead to data loss or corruption, especially if not done properly.


Malware can corrupt or encrypt data, rendering it inaccessible.

Accidental File Deletion

User errors such as accidental data deletion or disk formatting can lead to data loss.


Excessive heat can harm RAID setup components, possibly causing failure.

Power Surge

Sudden power surges can damage the drives or the RAID controller, leading to potential data loss.

Furthermore, using RAID 1 with one drive after the second one fails allows your system to keep running, but it’s a temporary and risky state. RAID 1 mirrors data across two drives for redundancy, so if one drive fails, data is still accessible from the other drive, preserving data and system functionality. However, this mode isn’t a long-term fix. The main issue with a single-drive RAID 1 setup is the lack of redundancy.

 If the remaining drive fails before you replace the failed one, all data is lost. This defeats the purpose of RAID 1. Operating in a degraded state strains the remaining drive, potentially shortening its lifespan. Replacing the failed disk and rebuilding the RAID 1 array to full redundancy as soon as possible is essential. Our team can assist you in this process and ensure your data is fully recovered without any further risks.

I took my Synology NAS to PITS for assistance after one of its four drives failed unexpectedly, leaving me unable to access any of my data. PITS immediately understood the critical nature of my ... predicament and wasted no time getting to work. They even completed the data recovery much sooner than I had anticipated. They also organized a verification session, allowing me to review the recovered results. Honestly, I was skeptical about the possibility of a full recovery, but to my surprise, all of my documents, media and the rest of the files were successfully recovered. The service was truly commendable. Should I ever face a similar issue in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again.

I've had my LaCie SSD Pro for a really long time, and it's been super important to me. It has all my stuff from high school to the end of college. I had to contact PITS because my drive started having ... problems and all my files got messed up. But, thanks to PITS, they got all my files back, checked everything was okay in our verification session, and gave me a new drive with my files on it. I couldn't have asked for more, truly chuffed with their help.

Great service - I've never been as satisfied with anyone as much as I've been with PITS

After my Nan passed away, we discovered an old computer brimming with decades of family photos. The following day, when I attempted to transfer the media to my drive, the laptop displayed a black ... screen and ceased functioning. Having taken it to several computer repair shops without any success in recovering the data, PITS was highly recommended to me. And rightfully so. I can't thank PITS enough for what they've done for our family - we received all of the media and even the rest of her data. I am truly blessed to know that there are people who can help during these times
