i'm Mohammed, i have been visiting this site from time to time , i don't lie if i said i have read every topic in this forum (For Real ),
but now i decided to signup to be part f this forum, also i have contact Mr. Jared Palmer for a few times, asking him about data recovery, i found him very helpful, he tries to explain the basics of data recovery to anyone asking for help,if you are bored you can skip the below and read the direct questions that are at the end of this thread
i have ORICO 3549U3RF 4 Bays Raid enclosure (NAS & DAS at the same time )
i don't know what happened suddenly my Raid-0 Partition become not accessible and error message pop-up says
"The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. "
i went to "Disk Management" i found that the Raid-0 Partition split into 2 Partitions !!! one Healthy and the other one marked as "unknown" !!!
then suddenly i was able to access it, but most of the files are gone !!!, i used check disk function it found some errors and it fixed them but my files are still not recovered !!!
i know that:
- it's not Permission / Security issues ,
- i tried to access to my raid-0 through Linux OS Using a Live Session , it did not work i was not able to access it
- there is no bad sectors found, no strange sounds the drive Is not physically Damaged ,
- No Virus/malware infection
so i came to conclusion, it must be the MFT !!. Somehow it got corrupted because of the bad Raid Hardware, it seems that my (ORICO 3549U3RF 4 Bays Raid enclosure) is not good as i thought the quality of it is bad!!,
so in order to recover the data from the corrupted MFT i used the powerful r-studio software and it was able to read the corrupted MFT and reconstruct all the files again in seconds , then my face went like
, now im going to recover my data i hope every thing goes wellq.1 why the partition split into 2 partitions !? if the MFT is corrupted will this happen ?!
q.2 the most important question is,, what is the best 8-bays/4-bays enclosure that comes with Raid Function ???? what do you advice me to buy !? i want to avoid any risk and buy the correct enclosure from the first time
