Solutions for NAS data recovery with a number of RAID configured hard disks
We offer recovery data solutions for NAS conigurations from the following manufacturers: Western Digital, Intel, Seagate, Iomeaga, Lacie, Netgear, Buffalo, Promise and we execute customised recovery solutions for any type of NAS.
NAS (Network attached storage) configurations perform the role of a server but at a low price, usually consisting of 2,3 or 4 hard drives. According to the number of the disks NAS are configured in RAID 1, 5 or 10. In certain situations, due to power fluctuations or due to hard disk problems it happens that configurations are altered and the data can no longer be accessed. In these cases the NAS data recovery service is necessary.
Considering the fact that the hard drives are configured with RAID matrixes, their extraction from NAS and the attempt at recovering the data for every individual disks is not possible. If the data is important do not attempt the recovery yourself, contact specialised centres or you risk losing your data for good.
For the recovery of data specialised equipments are necessary, for the identification first of the hard drive or the hard disks causing problems, and then the recovery of the hard disks necessary for the rebuilding of matrixes and subsequently recovery.
In general these NAS configurations use LINUX operating systems, RAID software for data storage on hard drives and virtual volumes (LVM). In certain cases, these NAS configurations are more difficult to recover than a RAID matrix configured on a HP, IBM or DELL server, where there is only a hardware matrix.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ATTEMPT TO REBUILD WHEN THE NAS IS NOT WORKING, OR YOU RISK LOSING ALL OF YOUR DATA.
DO NOT EXCHANGE NAS HARD DRIVES UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
Usually the most destructive factor is the customer attempting to exchange the disks without really knowing what to do or to rebuild in hope of solving the problem. They contact us next and we can only find that the data cannot be recoverede.
IF the NAS is brought to service exactly in the state it is when it stops working, there are 95% chances of recovery.
If you have a NAS which is no longer working send it for a free diagnosis. In consequence we will be able to give you more details of the means of recovery data in your case . How to send NAS equipments for service. For details click here.
