Data Recovery from RAID, Servers and NAS Arrays
We have the experience and technical capability to solve complex RAID recoveries when a fault occurs.
RAID arrays use different techniques that allow multiple hard drives to be combined in order to use them as a larger singular volume. A RAID array can read and write much faster than a simple configuration, as it splits the data and accesses the hard drives in parallel.
Generally we find RAID arrays in file servers, but lately they have become popular in external units, such as LaCie, Iomega, Sonnet, etc.
With our initial diagnosis, you can know what data is recoverable and at what cost, before making a decision to proceed with the retrieval of the information. In these cases there is always a charge for the diagnosis. You can request a personalized quote by contacting us by phone.
Our engineers use advanced techniques and tools to repair, recover and rebuild inaccessible data from any type of RAID and any problematic situation.
Any type of RAID array, controller, level, and architecture; Any brand, model and type of hard drive.
For situations in which there are physical internal faults on multiple hard drives, we have a world-class laboratory run by engineers, for the correct handling and recovery of your data.
Procedure for a RAID Fault
- Never set up a new RAID on the same controller or cabinet, insert the hard drives into a new controller or cabinet, or swap the position of the hard drives. This will overwrite the configuration metadata, making data recovery difficult.
- Accurately record all events that have occurred since the last access to the data.
- Note the positions of the hard drives.
- If any of the hard drives have been replaced, keep the originals.
