Data Recovery Charnwood: Many small to medium sized enterprises are turning to RAID arrays to allow their staff to access the same information at the same time across a network, giving each of them the opportunity to access a different flavour of information whilst dealing with a whole host of clients. However problems can arise with RAID devices if a hard drive(s) fails and disrupts the mirroring and striping process. When this happens members of the workforce may find that the data they need to deal with their clients is unavailable and out of date and as such our data recovery engineers are called upon to (a) help retrieve the most up to date information and (b) assist with the rebuild of the RAID array after a new drive has been fitted. Call our team today on 0115 8220606 if you are having difficulties with a RAID array and find out how we can help and receive a no obligation no hassle quotation too.
What is RAID? Redundant Array of Inexpensive/Independent Disks. To simplify RAID is a set of hard drives contained within an enclosure and attached to a network that allows multiple users to access the same data at the same time, making changes to it and saving it so that everyone can access these changes as they are made. Our data recovery Charnwood engineers have been helping clients just like you who have had issues with their RAID device after the loss of a hard drive or after an attempted rebuild has failed.
Many of the newer RAID arrays come complete with what is known as a ‘Hot Swapping’ facility which allows for the removal and replacement of a faulty hard drive whilst the RAID array is still in use however problems can arise if the drive has not been formatted to match the format of the drives already in use or because of incompatibility issues between either hardware or software controllers. Our data recovery Charnwood engineers have years of experience in dealing with such issues and have even been credited with developing unique recovery techniques that allow for the recovery of data from ‘virtual clusters’ that have been written off as unrecoverable.
We offer RAID recovery solutions that not only accommodate the recovery of the data from a drive (or drives) that have failed with an array but also help with the rebuilding of such an array after a drive(s) has been replaced. We can offer you a 24 hour recovery service for RAID devices that are used across large networks where time and data accessibility are of the essence.
Hewlett Packard P4000 & P4500 – recovering the unrecoverable!
Our data recovery Charnwood engineers are proud to say that we have done what for many has been considered the impossible. Hewlett Packard cited after the takeover of LeftHand Servers that both the HP P4000 & P4500 ‘StoreVirtual’ storage nodes (based on RAID technology) were non-recoverable but our team of experts have developed a series of bespoke recovery techniques that go against this particular grain and make it possible to retrieve the data that would have otherwise been considered lost. To our knowledge we are the only company that can provide this service.
If you have lost access to data on your RAID server or are having trouble with a rebuild after the replacement of a drive contact our data recovery Charnwood team on 0115 8220606 and speak to one of our engineers who will provide you with an initial assessment of the situation as well as our no obligation (no hassle) quotation – the quote may contain an additional charge if the drive has failed due to mechanical error but our engineer will discuss this with you. They will also provide you with details of our No Fix No Fee policy and diagnose the problem during our initial assessment. If you are happy that we can recover your data then we ask that you send the drive to us at our data recovery Charnwood and Leicestershire centre. This can be done by post, courier or in person if you so choose. We recommend that if you decide to use the postal service you should register or record your package as we cannot accept responsibility for a lost storage device.
Once we have your device our data recovery Charnwood engineers will make a firm diagnosis of the problem and report back with their findings by email. The email will include a list of all the data to be recovered successfully (this is in the form of files, folders and directories) and if you are happy to continue we ask that you make payment via credit or debit card (corporate or personal) or BACS transfer. We may ask you to purchase an external storage device if the data we are asked to recover is in excess of our standard 30GBs allowance. Once we have received payment we will recover and return your data via next day courier service (the cost of which has been factored into your quotation). For more information on how we can recover the data from your failed RAID array and for a no obligation no hassle quote call our team today on 0115 8220606 – telephone lines and data recovery centre are open from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday (except Christmas Day and Easter). Please note we do not accept payments via PayPal.
