RAID analysis in ReclaiMe Pro

Deal with unknown RAIDs:

  • Determine RAID level quickly,
  • Weed out hotspares and unrelated drives,
  • Detect mirrors,
  • Literally see parity on disks in RAID5 and RAID6.

It often happens that people bring a set of disks from different RAID arrays. Worse yet, a client sometimes says that he or she knows the RAID level for sure while actually it is not so. With ReclaiMe Pro, you can confirm what they say in a couple of minutes.

Simple RAID data analyzer

Useful to detect copyback hotspares which are otherwise easy to miss. Provides:

  • Ratio of zero sectors on a disk,
  • Average data entropy on a disk,
  • The degree of identity between the pairs of disks,
  • The percentage of even rows (parity) in the full disk set and in every exclusion combinations.

Entropy analyzer

While requiring certain skill to operate, entropy analyzer produces a lot of fancy pictures.  if fancy alone is not enough, these pictures are extremely useful in detecting block size and number of disks in RAID5 and RAID6.
