Recovering Files on formatted RAID 5/6 using Recuva 1.43.623 (Settings Recommendation)
Posted 23 August 2012 - 05:17 PM
I am using Version 1.43.623 of Recuva and am looking at the best settings to recover files from 2TB HDD's that have been formatted a couple of times with different RAID configs such as RAID 5/6...
I scanned one of my HDD's but came up with little results...
I will add that the files I'm trying to recover are 4GB+ in size...
Is there a limitation with this software as far as different RAID configs go on HDD's that have been formatted a couple of times?

I suggest that any writing of files would have a greater impact upon your chance of success than a simple quick format

Raid 5 requires a minimum of 3 disks and Raid 6 requires 4. How did you format with two disks?
What was the format of the disks holding the files you're trying to recover, i.e. before you formatted with Raid? Was it Raid or single disk?
Were the old files deleted or left as they were and the disks formatted on top of them?
i feel in my bones that the chances of recovery are low.
