Our highly skilled team of RAID data recovery professionals can handle the most challenging of RAID recovery scenarios. We can recover data from all types of file servers, application servers, web servers, direct-network attached RAID storage devices, and SAN system failures.
RAID and other enterprise server environments have a high degree of fault tolerance. However, even the most well designed systems are susceptible to malfunctions and RAID systems can hardly be an exception to this rule. There’s a litany of reasons that can cause a RAID system failure. Sometimes power fluctuation, software, hardware problems (disk controller malfunctions) or even human error are the cause leading to the need for RAID data recovery.
When a business RAID, NAS or SANs storage server system first fails, it can be the first signs of an unfolding catastrophe. The damage and loss caused by such failures are not only disruptive to productivity, but the downtime and outage can also often have astronomical financial consequences if not quickly remedied. At SalvageData our dedicated RAID data recovery team understand this and have helped many small, medium and large enterprise businesses dealing with data loss resulting from various types of RAID and network storage server media failure outages.
Our in-lab RAID Data Recovery service and critical server response team of professionals can quickly assess the situation and provide instant access to experts for advice and guidance on how to best address the specific RAID data loss situation. Once in possession of the server or RAID disk set, we can quickly make the necessary arrangement at our facilities to salvage and recover your data in order to reduce organizational downtime.
Some Data Recovery Do’s and Do Not’s of Data Loss:
DO NOT try to swap circuit boards on modern drives. There may be firmware/system area conflict issues that may cause major problems.
DO NOT put your drive in the freezer and then try to spin it up. It is possible that moisture has condensed on the media surfaces. This WILL cause head contact if it has and will destroy the drive.
Stand Alone Drive Failure:
DO NOT open your hard drive and expose the media!!! There is nothing inside that needs the attention of a common user or do-it-yourselfer. Only a qualified hard drive data recovery engineer in a certified clean room environment should ever open a drive.
DO NOT listen to your friends or continue to look for home remedies on the net such as the one mentioned above, seek professional help if you value the lost data.
DO NOT run the recovery CD/DVD furnished with your PC. Most OEM helpdesk techs Don’t care about your data; they only want the hardware back on line.
DO try to slave your drive into a working system to check for readiness and file system integrity. You may be able to copy your data with no problem if only the OS is corrupt or if there is a hardware issue with the original host computer.
DO try an undelete demo from the net to see if what you’re looking for is available for recovery, if so, purchase the tool.
DO seek professional help if you’re not 110% sure of what you’re doing. You can learn basic recovery procedures on an expendable system.
DO back up your data early and often. It’s not if, it’s when.
DO NOT continue to power cycle a clicking or non-responsive drive; it’s not going work for you and may make the drive unrecoverable. If it should come “ready” by some chance, the possibility of it loading the OS for you, “just one more time”, is a million to one.
DO NOT install recovery software on the same drive/partition that you’re lost files are on, you will overwrite them with the installation.
DO NOT try to rebuild an array unless you know exactly which drives failed, why they failed, and most importantly,
DO NOT make a backup of the database to the same drive.
