Is it also possible to restore a defective RAID partition in Windows?
A software RAID in Windows can be offline or inconsistent for a variety of reasons. Other than suggested in the error message, it does not recommend using tools like CHKDSK without the necessary experience and protection. For important data, always contact a data recovery specialist to determine the best way to recover data. It also provides recovery of broken RAID partitions in various file systems and operating systems. It starts with a structured analysis of the defective RAID partition. Thereafter, the reconstruction of the logically damaged data, so that the actual RAID partition also called volume can be read again and completely restored. For the hard drive recovery this is the smartest detail now.

Experts often receive requests from users who tell us that their partition has been destroyed. In the analysis, this type of logical damage is often confirmed. It is important in the case of defective partition tables of external hard disks and USB sticks that as far as possible, no direct write accesses are made on the medium.

I need individual files from a deleted partition, could you restore them?
If individual files, e.g. Outlook PST files or Office data are needed from a deleted partition, usually the entire partition is restored. Depending on whether logical damage has been caused by further processing, by formatting and overwriting the deleted partition, it may happen that not all files within a deleted partition can be consistently restored. Therefore, it makes sense to restore individual files of high importance and priority from a defective or deleted disk partition.

Definition of terms: partition of a volume
A partition represents part of a physical volume on which data can be written and read consecutively. Different partitions are treated as separate drives by the operating system and are therefore largely independent of each other. Only the physical constraint and the existing context limit the size and availability of partitions. If several partitions are accommodated on a physical data medium, then a mechanical defect threatens a loss of data of all partitions located thereon.
