RAID Data Recovery
Our dedicated team of RAID data recovery
engineers is trained to handle all of the current server hardware platforms as well as commonly used legacy systems
utilized in the market today.
Complex fault-tolerant systems can also suffer from a crash. Often, failure to correctly implement these systems leads to point of malfunction and
can cause data loss. This is human error and not shortcomings of the technology used or the design of the array.
Even the best-configured system can fail due to:
- RAID Controller failure
- Multiple drive failure
- Accidental replacement of media components
- Accidental reformatting of drives or whole RAID array
- Array configuration lost
- Intermittent drive failure resulting in RAID degradation
DRS has extensive experience in recovery from failed RAID
's, including parity-distributed and basic spanned or striped volumes. We only require the
active members of the array in order to recover lost data – no controllers, cables or enclosures. If you are asked for the original RAID controller or
array system by a data recovery company, be careful – you may be risking recoverable data to an inexperienced firm!
RAID Levels with different architectures have a lot of similarity, but each type also has its own “favorite” failures and different techniques to handle too:
Every single RAID data recovery
case which arrives at our labs receives high priority importance because we know and understand them to be a top
priority for most organizations. Our disk recovery process, coupled with our ability to produce a safe sector-to sector dump of the complete volume,
allows us to process an array as a collection of image files. RAID recovery
of crashed members of the array is similar to hard drive recovery procedures.
We are expert in all Disk Based Hardware and Software

All further procedures to recover data from array members are done on the raw images, leaving original drives intact. Our advanced software tools will
extract the data from the images. When a drive image is not available, the tools can reconstruct the data 'on-the-fly' in the same way that the RAID
rebuild process would have done on the original system.
After determining what steps will be necessary to complete your RAID data recovery
, we will contact you for approval . No work will be done without your approval.
As soon as you approve the quotation, our engineers will continue with the recovery process.
We recover data from any hard drive RAID arrays made by but not limited to the following manufacturers:
