COMMON CAUSES OF RAID FAILURE

 

Controller Malfunction:

Controller malfunctions are among the most common types of data loss and are often caused by a power surge, which is why it’s so important to choose the right surge protection options.

Missing Partition:

You may employ partitioning to reduce speed loss on your RAID. However, RAID failure can occur when the system cannot find a partition it expects. This may happen if you’ve recently modified partitions or if RAID striping has failed and corrupted the partition, causing drive failure. Furthermore, if the system cannot find a partition even though it exists, RAID failure or data loss can result.

Power Surge:

Much like a power surge can damage a personal computer, it can also hard drive in a RAID array, leading to data loss. In fact, a power surge could also cause the controller to malfunction.

Data Deletion:

While you probably don’t intend to delete necessary data, it sometimes occurs. Commonly, a reformat can delete data without you intended to do so. We’ve all heard the adage that it’s better to be safe than sorry, so backup data before you reformat any machines.

Malware:

Whether due to a virus or another type of malware, RAID failure isn’t fun. Protect your hardware and data by employing robust antivirus software and firewalls. Use redundant backups so that ransomware doesn’t cause you to lose valuable data.  Wildfire Data Recovery can help you set up a secure, safe RAID and/or server employing the latest in cloud cybesecurity technology developed in-lab by us. 

Wrong Replacement Drive:

Choosing the wrong replacement for your RAID array can have disastrous results. Similarly, using a drive that is improperly formatted in your setup may have negative consequences that you’d prefer to avoid. Even if your replacement should be compatible, rebuild errors could cause drive failure and data loss.

Application Upgrade:

Upgrading software can occasionally lead to data loss, especially if upgrading the application revokes access to the RAID disk for whatever reason.

HOW TO PREVENT RAID DATA LOSS

 

There are numerous warning signs of a failing hard drive. You may be able to identify them even before you lose your data. 

  • Here at WDR, we understand the types of RAID failures that can happen, this means we also understand the times when those failures are more likely to occur. For example, you might experience a failure after installing new hardware or making software configuration change.

  • We check and double-check hardware compatibility and software changes before making any adjustments and we can also train both yourself and your staff on best practise for data storage.

  • Failures due to power surges can happen after a storm or other electrical event. This risk can be minimized by using a datacenter that has enterprise-level battery and generator backup..

  • And because no drive lasts forever, it may be more common for them to fail after years of continuous operation or during times of particularly heavy stress or high temperature.
