Did you also face the RAID server crash issue? Do not panic; every problem has a solution. In this article, we will be guiding you on what to do when a RAID server crashes? Author Divya Dhami View all posts

Redundant Array of Independent Data, popularly known as RAID, is a configuration of multiple hard disks in a logical unit that makes RAID data run, read and perform tasks smoothly without any hassles. RAID improves data redundancy, but one must know that RAID is a storage system, not a backup. So whenever RAID data crashes or is corrupted, expert intervention would be preferable but taking necessary precautions.
Let’s look at the reason why the RAID array fails:

1. Human error: Humans are not infallible; mistakes are an inevitable part of human lives. Similarly, in terms of technology, humans can make mistakes. Any human error can lead to a data loss, such as unknowing deletion of data from RAID, accidental installation, reformation of drives and arrays, incorrect placement of hard disks in the RAID array, etc. Hence, check twice and read about it thoroughly before formatting, deleting, or installing anything.

2. Physical error: Another important factor for RAID failure or inaccessibility is that RAID becomes inaccessible or server crashes due to multiple disk failures, bad sectors, RAID controller failure, etc. Sometimes server crashes may lead to data failure, or data may become undetectable.

3. Technical error: Along with human and physical error, a technical error is also an important factor to highlight while discussing RAID server crashes. For example, when viruses and malware continuously attack RAID servers, files and folders get corrupted or damaged, RAID and registry configuration issues arise, etc.

After knowing the cause of RAID failure, let’s put some light upon the preventive measure:

Avoid overwriting and reading.
Avoid fallacious installation
Avoid RAID partition reconfiguration.
Ensure proper place of drives in a RAID array
Always keep antivirus updates.
Ensure no power outage or interruption of power supply
Check twice before formatting or deleting Drive Data.
Always seek IT professional advice when multiple drives fail or become inaccessible.
Avoid DIY hacks and software; it may be a helpful but not yet proven method.
Avoid the process of rebuilding RAID where multiple drives failed.
Keep your data backup available; RAID System is not a backup, so the RAID should be protected against natural disasters or future mishaps.


After discussing the causes and measures, there may be some severe situations where you may lose your RAID data.
