RAID data recovery is a whole new challenge as it’s much more complex than single drive recoveries. Each damaged drive must be repaired and imaged reading all bad sectors then virtually rebuilt. We use a certified class 10 clean room to repair damaged drives. Hex tools must be used to find the correct parameters such as block size, the correct offset, order, and which drive to leave out. The success rate is much lower due to user error and faulty rebuilds and can become very complicated because of this. However, if we receive the array in it’s original state once it has failed then the odds of success are great. All work is done on site in a secure, alarmed lab.  No other person has access to your drive besides the engineer performing the work. Confidentiality is of utmost importance to us.  We are one of the only companies in the Tri-State area that is HIPAA certified and compliant. If you aren’t local please don’t hesitate to call us directly and feel rest assured you can safely ship your RAID drives to us.  It’s important to label each drive in it’s correct order when removing them from your server.

What to do when your RAID fails

   Do not run any chkdsk options like FSCK, or CHKDSK. These utilities can corrupt or destroy your file system.  Do not try to rebuild the RAID array. Doing so can wipe out data needed to recover the data you are seeking.  Do not remove several failed drives at once hoping to reinitialize the array.  Do not lose the correct order of the drives in the array.  Do not try to repair any damaged drives yourself.
