RAID Data Recovery
Due to the Covid-19 Virus and the subsequent economic impact. The Data Rescue Center is closing its doors until further notice, effective 3-30-2020. Our sister company Prosoft Engineering will continue to provide data recovery utilities and support, if you are experiencing data loss or a physically failing device, we would suggest you download their free demo.
If your hard drive is clicking, grinding, has a burning smell, or has become completely unrecognized by the system, you need a physical hard drive recovery immediately. To ensure no further damage is done, please disconnect the device from the power and fill out the form above to begin the data recovery process.
The Data Rescue Center is capable of dealing with all kinds of multi-disk setups, from just a bunch of disks (JBOD) to every RAID configuration from RAID 0 to RAID 6 and proprietary RAID systems like DROBOs as well. Whatever your needs, be sure to contact our RAID and server experts for more information.
RAID data recovery cases always require all the drives that are involved in the setup, even if the problem was only caused by one failed drive. Sending in all drives provides the best chance for successful recovery.
You will need a RAID data recovery if any physical damage to the drive(s) occurred. The RAID needs to be repaired first before the structure can be recreated in the lab. Once the RAID has been reconstructed all of the data can be extracted to a healthy drive.
We make it easy to get started!
We are confident that our prices are typically 30-40% lower than our competitors. Because of this, we offer an exclusive price match policy. If you find a recovery lab that offers you a lower quote, send it to us and we will match their price.
Have any unwanted drives? We'll take them!
HardDriveRecycle sources and recycles hard drives to later be used as donor parts for hard drive recoveries performed by The Data Rescue Center. We are proud to offer this free, enviormentally-sensative and secure service to the community.
Do I need to send in all of the drives from the RAID/Server array?
Yes, all drives that were part of the array and any attempted rebuild drives will need to be sent in to provide the best chance for a successful recovery. To prevent further damage to your RAID array maintain the integrity of the data contained within that RAID, it is important to create clones of each array member and attempt to reconstruct the RAID array using clones. For this reason it is necessary to send in all of the drives from the RAID/Server.
Do I need to ship the RAID/Server enclosure or can I just send the drives?
When shipping in a RAID or server, you will want to remove the drives form the enclosure. Be sure to label and wrap the drives separately from the enclosure. This will ensure that the internal SATA connections in the RAID or server do not snap off during shipment.
What if only a single drive has failed in the RAID?
In most cases, a RAID splits your data across multiple drives to have redundancy as well as make the data accessible at a faster rate. So in order to perform a successful recovery, we will need to see all the drives from the failed unit as well as the enclosure for the drives as well. Repairing the single failed drive will not allow the data on the RAID volume to be accessed without reconstructing the array.
Can I ship the drives in the enclosure?
When shipping the device you will want to take all the drives out of the enclosure they are in and label and wrap the drives as well as the enclosure separately. This will ensure that the internal SATA connections in the Raid or server are not snapped off during shipment.
Will you rebuild my server to how it was before the failure?
Unfortunately due to the many circumstances that can lead to server failure, there is no way to know if we can provide a fully-running rebuilt server. In most server failure cases there is significant damage to the file system leading to unstable performance and repeated errors. In all cases we will try to recover your server in its original state but this is a rare outcome. Typically all of your important data will be extracted to an new healthy drive which you can then transfer and use on a new server.
