Stop! Attention: Avoid Further Data Loss Stop!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

Do I need to ship the RAID/Server enclosure or can I just send the drives?

Most RAID enclosures will either use a proprietary RAID configuration or an encryption card in the enclosure itself to keep the data secure, however this will require that we also receive the original enclosure so that the data can be read once the drives are repaired.

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.
