  • Standard – Your RAID data is recovered within 5-10 working days.

We recover files and data from:

  • Any RAID Level (eg. RAID 5, 6, 1, 0, 10, 50 etc)
  • Any System (Dell Poweredge, HP Proliant, IBM, G-RAID, Synology, NetGear, QNAP etc)
  • Any Operating System and File System
  • Any type of data eg. Virtual Machines (VM’s), SANs, Microsoft Exchange Server, SQL Server, general Microsoft Office data, Video and TV production, music production, SANs, custom systems etc
  • You name it, if it’s stored on a RAID configuration, we’ll recover the data from it.

Our RAID & Server Data Recovery Process

1. Contact Us

0800 151 2207

Or fill in the Contact Form.

 We will determine the nature of the problem and give an indication of recovery costs and timeframe.

We will arrange to have your device collected for free from any UK address.

Or you can all in at one of our UK locations and drop, Mon-Fri 9am-5pm

3. Diagnosis

Analysis of the problem begins in the lab.

The fault is understood and a recovery plan constructed along with an exact recovery cost.

4. Recovery

Once the recovery cost is approved, data recovery begins immediately.

The transfer time is dependent on how much data there is to recover.

5. Return

Your data is returned along with you faulty equipment using a secure point to point courier.

We will keep a copy of your data for 10 days.

The RAID Data Recovery Process

  • An initial diagnosis by our RAID data recovery team determines whether each media device is accessible to our lab equipment. If so, the first priority is to create a raw image of all data from accessible media onto new media so that logical analysis can determine the nature of the information loss situation
  • If some of the media is inaccessible our lab will test the components and closely examine its internal health to determine the extent of physical damage.
  • Recovery of crashed RAID and other hard disks often involves replacing failed or damaged components in a clean environment and using specialized hardware and software tools to create the raw image. Failed components typically include electronics, read/write heads, head assemblies, magnets & drive motors.
  • Logical RAID data recovery uses the raw images of all the server’s media by examining the low-level data sectors. Technicians must determine both the exact layout of volumes which span or are striped across multiple drives and what fixes to filesystem structures are needed to get access to the important data.
  • Multiple-drive servers are typically ‘destriped’ onto our media so that filesystem repairs can be performed and the data files extracted. Sometimes the existing filesystem structures are missing or damaged so much that data has to be extracted directly from one or more fragments of the destriped image.
  • Our programmers have created a full set of software tools used by our technicians to analyze, destripe, fix & recover data from raw images drives to virtually all operating systems. Once a recovery has been successfully performed, file lists are created and information validity is checked.
