RAID data recovery software - MiniTool Power Data Recovery

Data loss is always a brain-rending issue for many computer users. Thankfully, we can recover those lost data with third-party data recovery software. Commonly, FAT and NTFS are the most densely utilized file systems under Windows operating systems. By contrast, RAID is an rare partition for some computer users. Talking about third-party data recovery software, I would like to recommend MiniTool Power Data Recovery, which perfect supports RAID disk partitions and possesses powerful functions.

RAID, an acronym for Redundant Array of Independent Disks (Changed from its original term Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks), is a technology that provides increased storage functions and reliability through redundancy. This is achieved by combining multiple disk drive components into a logical unit, where data is distributed across the drives in one of several ways called "RAID levels". This concept was first defined by David A. Patterson, Garth A. Gibson, and Randy Katz at the University of California, Berkeley in 1987 as Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks.[1] Marketers representing industry RAID manufacturers later attempted to reinvent the term to describe a redundant array of independent disks as a means of dissociating a low-cost expectation from RAID technology. RAID is now used as an umbrella term for computer data storage schemes that can divide and replicate data among multiple physical disk drives. The physical disks are said to be in a RAID array, which is addressed by the operating system as one single disk. The different schemes or architectures are named by the word RAID followed by a number (e.g., RAID 0, RAID 1). Each scheme provides a different balance between two key goals: increase data reliability and increase input/output performance.

Five main functions modules of MiniTool Power Data Recovery:
1. "Undelete Recovery"
2. "Damaged Partition Recovery"
3. "Lost Partition Recovery"
4. "Digital Media Recovery"
5. "CD/DVD Recovery"

The following is a demonstration on recovering lost data with MiniTool Power Data Recovery:
First, launch MiniTool Power Data Recovery. Select "Damaged Partition Recovery" to enter next interface.

Select a desired partition and then click "Full Scan"

Select a highest suggested partition, then click "Show Files".

Last, check desired files and then click "Save Files" to finish data recovery.
