Raid 1 Systems Failure including HP, Dell, Lacie, Qnap, Linkstation, G Drive etc:
Raid 1 Systems fail on a daily basis. We are the leading UK Raid 1 recovery experts and have 15 years experience recovering Raid 1 systems such as Lacie, Qnap, Linkstation, G Drive etc. We offer very quick turnaround times for all raid 1 systems. We can recover data from raid controller failures, rebuild failures, reinstalled failures, VMWare – Virtual Disk failures, deleted, formatted or reinstalled failures etc. If your raid system has failed and cannot boot up and you cannot access the data phone us for a quote and some expert advice. Below is a list of some of the Raid 1 failures we receive in for recovery:
Raid 1 System Mechanical or Physical Failure:
Raid 1 System components will fail normally due to the heavy workload of the system being on 365 days x 24 hours. Raid controllers can fail without warning, replacing the raid controller with an identical controller does not always enable you to boot raid system. Hard disks can also fail on raid systems, whether it is SCSI, SAS or SATA disks we are experts at diagnosing and extracting data from mechanically damaged disks such as read/write heads, motor damage, disk platter damage, water or fire damage etc.
Raid 1 System Rebuild Failure:
Raid 1 Systems fail, if you are running a Raid 1 system and one disk fails you will normally have the option to rebuild the Raid 1 data parity onto a new disk. Sometimes the rebuild process will fail after a few percent or will complete but then raid system will not boot. We are experts in recovering data from failed raid rebuilds and have a very high success rate of recovering data from this type of problem.
Raid 1 System PCB or Firmware Failure:
Raid 1 System PCB failure is common problem with hard disks. The PCB is contains the electronic components on the back of the hard drive and allows the hard disk to power up and get recognised etc. Hard drives that have PCB problems normally are completely dead or have burning smell coming form them. Firmware problems on servers can happen in two ways. Upgrading the firmware code for a Raid controller card can cause the raid system to stop functioning. Also sometimes the firmware code on the raid server hard drives can also fail. We are raid experts at recovering data from PCB or firmware failures.
Raid 1 System Missing Data, Corrupt Data, Faulty Raid Controller:
Raid 1 systems can contain data that has become corrupt or missing. This means the file system has become corrupt normally due to read/write issues with the server hard disks. When this happens it means there is either read/write head issues or bad sectors on the server hard disks. A faulty raid controller card is a common issue. These will fail, simply replacing the raid card with a like for like card will probably not allow you access to your raid data.
