RAID Data Recovery Services
RAID Data Recovery Services - Servers, NAS, SAN
Our dedicated team of RAID data recovery engineers is trained to handle all of the current RAID hardware platforms as well as SAN and NAS appliances commonly 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. Unfortunately, human error is a common cause when data is lost from a NAS. Data loss often happens accidentally due to reformatting, reinstallation, deleting or overwriting a volume. This is human mistakes and not shortcomings of the technology used or the design of the array.
Even the best-configured RAID 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
Professional RAID Array Data Recovery
ACE Data Recovery 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:
RAID Data Recovery - Our High Priority
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 RAID Array Configurations:
- RAID 0
- RAID 1
- RAID 0+1
- RAID 1E
- RAID 3
- RAID 4
- RAID 5
- RAID 6
- RAID 10
- RAID 50
- RAID 60
- RAID 5E
- RAID 5EE
- RAID 7
- RAID Z
You can compare different RAID level advantage at RAID Level Comparison table.
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.
