The users who know what the real term data means and are trying hard for the data safety and integrity, are aware of the various RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) levels. The RAID comes in various levels, each having its own set of characteristics. RAID 5 is considered as one of the popular level among them.
RAID 5 does the striping and mirroring of the data and the parity information across three or more drives. RAID 5 is seen by many as the ideal combination of good performance, good fault tolerance and high capacity and storage efficiency. But some times this level can be problematic in terms of the data when operated with Mac operating system.
This has been reported that RAID 5 doesn’t mount after you reboot along with a strange event is seen and a Fibre Channel LIP (Loop Initialization Primitive) is detected. Actually this happens when any new device is connected to the Fibre Channel network. But the users may find it amazing fact as no new device may has been connected. Checking the array tab also doesn’t give the useful results. Verification of the array and rebuilding parity data also doesn’t give the fruitful results. This can also happen after you update the firmware. This is the weird situation where you need Mac data recovery.
Actually this may be the case of the overwriting of the metadata by some utility. The metadata, which describes an individual datum or content item, or a collection of data including multiple content items and hierarchical levels for any storage media, is stored on the first 64 KB in the RAID schema. The absence of the metadata leads to many complications of data loss.
The solution for this would be to have Mac recovery by separating the disks and use them individually to retrieve the data. You can then attach the drives in a sequence to any healthy system and install and use the data recovery Mac software on the healthy system to get the data from.
Mac data recovery software would scan the affected hard drive and get the inaccessible data. The software run the powerful scanning algorithms and end up at the perfect Mac recovery. These ease the user’s work through the user interface they provide, being effective and non-demanding for any technical skills.
Stellar Phoenix Macintosh Data Recovery software is the superior quality product for data recovery Mac. The software uses the most powerful scanning algorithms to have Mac data recovery in each possible case of data loss.
This Mac recovery utility is usable with HFS, HFS+, HFSX and HFS Wrapper file systems. This will prove as the complete resolution for all your posers and will recover all types of files. The safe and non destructive nature makes the results of Mac recovery more effective.
