How to Recover Data from Mac RAID?

"Increase in number of bad sectors on RAID partition can result in loss of data from the respective Mac volume, so I started defragmentation process on my Mac computer. After some time of initiating defragmentation, the system failed to respond. I was unable to switch on between the tasks or applications, hence I restarted my Mac PC. Once I restarted the Mac machine, I was unable to find RAID partitions that were present in it. Can anyone provide me a procedure as to how to get access to the information present on those RAID volumes? Thanks a lot!"

Here Mac RAID refers to the presence of multiple hard disk components that are combined in a single logical unit. These RAID partitions are used only when user needs to access and store large amount of information from a single storage media. With the presence of more number of RAID partitions in a single system, it may become difficult for users to maintain the information and at times it can end up losing valuable data from those RAID partitions.

  • Accidental deletion of the partitions while trying to create new volumes on RAID drives may result in severe data loss
  • If there are more number of bad sectors on your RAID partition, then files present in it become inaccessible
  • Usage of improper third party tools in the system for read / write process will lead to loss of files that were being shared
