ReclaiMe Data Recovery Training

Entropy Analysis - Practice part

Entropy analysis is the last to be done for disks coming from parity-based RAIDs. This analysis should be applied after content and parity analysis. With entropy analysis, you can determine the block size, number of disks in the original array, and get an idea about disk order.

In this practice, you are offered two tasks in which you should get as much information as possible about RAID configuration working with disk image files in ReclaiMe Pro.

Task 1 - Determine configuration of a parity-based RAID

4 disk image files compressed to a ZIP archive, 232 MB


Task 2 - Determine configuration of a parity-based RAID

4 disk image files compressed to a ZIP archive, 363 MB
