RAID Data Recovery - NAS – SAN – Xsan – Xserve – JBOD – VHD - Windows – AppleMac – UNIX - LINUX

Data Recovery Specialists are experts in RAID data recovery from multi-drive systems. From common RAID levels, up to highly specialised Network Attached Storage, supporting all operating systems and configurations. Our extremely high RAID data recovery success rate, results from many years of experience, combined with specialist tools and software, specifically developed for multi-drive RAID data formats. This is why customers including the MOD, NHS and Kodak trust our expertise.

Although highly fault tolerant, RAID configured storage can fail due to many reasons. These include component failure (including hard drives and controller cards), operating and application corruption, but most commonly, simple user error, leaving the data inaccessible.

RAID data is extremely complex and data configurations numerous - such as striped, volume, spanned etc. Manufacturers also add complexity with unique configurations. Successful RAID data recovery relies on pattern recognitions and understanding the array configuration, the file system on the data array, what the problem is and why the array failed in the first place.

Our Raid recovery capabilities don’t just stop at NTFS Based Raids; we also have extensive capabilities with MAC (Xsan & Xserve), UNIX, FAT and VMware Raids. Our engineers are dedicated RAID data recovery specialists. We have unique knowledge and experience and are always available to talk you through the problem free of charge.

Our RAID Data Recovery Service...

With regards our RAID data recovery service, we would initially complete an assessment to determine the nature of the fault. We will then respond with a detailed diagnosis, including prices and timescales. At this stage you are under no obligation. The cost of RAID data recovery varies depending on the level of corruption and capacity of the RAID array.

If you decide to proceed, we will carry out the RAID data recovery and provide a file list report of recovered files. The presence of a file in the list does not guarantee that the file is not corrupt; we will need you to inform us of important data, so that we can verify it. Once you have checked the data recovery file list and this has been verified, we can then return the data on whatever media and in any format that you request.

  • no fix, no fee no charges if the data cannot be recovered.
  • confirmed 99% RAID data recovery success rate for the previous 12 months.
  • fast turnaround we work 24:7 on your recovery
  • all RAID data is treated in the strictest confidence
