I don't understand how is it possible to recover data if the disk was filled with zeros!?

Please clarify, why isn't using dd not doing it properly?

comment Does software RAID-0 really improve performance?
I got that thanks, I've never experienced any hard disks failure with this provider and since I will be have 1 GBPS on both servers and they are relatively close together, it will just be the matter of replacing the drive and copying over the data. I need RAID0 Cos hard disk I/O seems to always be the bottleneck in my setups, thanks for the clarification though.

Thanks for your answer, the page you linked to was very helpful.And regarding downtime I will be using SSHfs for off-site backups so I think I will be alright

I understand this, but I was wondering if SOFTWARE RAID will have the same effect cos I tried it on my computer and set up software raid with Windows and there was no improvement

comment CPU load steadily increasing and MySQL 1.5 GB open deleted file in temp directory
I also wanted to ask, I was going to add a cron job that checks to see if there is any >1GB file opened by MySQL and restart MySQL so this does not happen again, temporarily until I find the solution, so is this safe?
