We are experts in RAID and Server data recovery.
Bring or send your RAID or Server hard drives to us and we will help you get your data back.
We provide the fastest and finest data recovery service in Adelaide and South Australia.
When you notice loss of your data or become aware of a failure or irregular
operation of your data storage device, you need to know the following:
RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive/Independent Disks) stores data on more than one hard drive.
With recent technology developments RAID applications are becoming widespread, both in enterprise servers and NAS devices.
There are various RAID configurations and the most common are:
RAID 0: Two or more hard drives, no fault tolerance, total combined disk capacity available
RAID 1: Two or more hard drives, data mirrored on all drives, fault tolerant – will work with one drive only, disk capacity equivalent to one hard drive only
RAID 5: Three or more hard drives, fault tolerant – one drive failure, total capacity excludes one drive
RAID 6: Four or more hard drives, fault tolerant – two drives failure, total capacity excludes two drives
RAID 10: Four or more hard drives (even number), fault tolerant – one or two drives failure, total capacity half of combined drives capacity
Although most configurations provide functionality in case of failure of one or two drives, there are many reasons why RAID malfunction can result in data loss, some of which are:
- Expansion & reconstruction of RAID array.
- One or more drives down or failed in RAID
- Missing RAID partition(s)
- Accidental replacement of RAID Drives
- Corrupt RAID configuration
- Array controller failure
- Corrupted partition & invalid volumes
- Registry configuration lost
In addition to this, RAID configuration can be hardware (with dedicated controller) or software (with operating system, most often Linux) controlled which adds to complexity and requires technical expertise for RAID data recovery.
We have a range of tools, equipment experience and expertise that we deploy to recover data from failed RAID array with the best chance for successful RAID array data recovery.
RAID arrays are widely used in enterprise servers where Virtual Machines (e. g. VMWare, Citrix) may be deployed. We can recover data from enterprise servers with any RAID array configuration and Virtual machine deployment.
Our Server Recovery services are performed by experienced Recovery engineers whose expertise includes IAS, Exchange, NT Server, Server 2000, Server 2003, Server 2007, Server 2008 , Data Center 2004, Data Center 2006 etc. Linux Server, Ubuntu, Redhat, Debian etc.
We are specialists in recovery from all RAID configurations (RAID array, RAID level) including RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 3, RAID 4, RAID 5, RAID 1E, RAID 6, RAID 5E, RAID 5EE, RAID 0+1, RAID 10, RAID 50, RAID 51, Hybrid RAID and all RAID, Volume Set, NAS and SAN data storage devices and servers.
We recover data from RAID data storage devices of any size, type, interface and configuration, including all operating systems and platforms.
In each case we will apply the best suited recovery procedure which will maximise the likelihood for successful data recovery.
