Data Recovery Wyre Forest: Our engineers are able to recover important data from faltering hard drives, external hard drives, RAID arrays, mass storage devices, network assisted storage (NAS) and a host of USB-connectable devices including memory sticks and memory cards. To find out how we can help recover your data and get you back to work using the most up-to-date version of your data call us today on 0121 6614461.
Many small to medium sized enterprises now use RAID devices as a means of storing and allowing access to their data across a network populated by many users. RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks/Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) is used by many as a more cost effective way of allowing access to data over a network as opposed to such things as ‘virtual clusters’ that can cost many thousands of pounds. Our data recovery Wyre Forest engineers are called upon regularly to help recover the data from RAID setups that have failed to mirror properly or have failed to work correctly after a rebuild.
RAID arrays come in a variety of formats but for small to medium sized companies they usually adopt the RAID 0 policy which is a set of hard drives working in unison within a RAID device that are controlled by either a software or hardware controller and allow for the continual saving of data even after one drive has failed. Our data recovery Wyre Forest engineers have helped RAID clients with devices that have failed to mirror the data properly across the other drives after an individual drive has failed.
Our RAID recovery service allows for the retrieval of data from drives within a RAID setup that have failed and in doing with such a high level of success we are considered by many to be the premier RAID recovery service in the Wyre Forest and Worcestershire area.
RAID rebuild failures and ‘Hot Swapping’
One of the most advantageous developments in RAID technology is that of ‘Hot Swapping’ which allows a user to remove and replace a hard drive from a RAID array whilst the array is still in use by other users across the network. However there are occasions when this process can fail to allow for the up-to-date passing on stored information after a new drive has been installed and our data recovery Wyre Forest personnel have been asked to help provide data recovery to ensure that the network’s users are using the most recent data available.
If you have a RAID device that has suffered problems with a faulty hard drive then call our data recovery Wyre Forest engineers today on 0121 6614461 and a member of the team will provide you with an initial assessment of the situation as well as a no obligation quote (the quote may include an additional charge if the drive has suffered mechanical damage). If you are happy with the explanation we have provided you with and wish for us to recover the data from the non-functioning drive we ask that you send it to us here at our data recovery Wyre Forest and Worcestershire centre. You can do this by post (we recommend you register or record your package for peace of mind as we cannot be held responsible for the loss of such packages whilst in the possession of Royal Mail), courier or in person if you are close by.
On receipt of your drive our data recovery Wyre Forest engineers will make a final diagnosis of the problem and report back with our findings. We will do this by email and include a detailed list of all the files, folders etc that can be recovered (if the data to be recovered is in excess of 30GBs then we may ask you to purchase an external storage device from our stocks). Once you are happy that we can recover the data you need we ask that you make payment to us via BACs or credit/debit card (we do not accept PayPal) and on receipt of payment we will recover your data to its new medium and return it by next day courier. For more information call us today on 0121 6614461 (our lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm (as is our data recovery centre).
