RAID & Server Data Recovery Services

 

In a world of ever expanding data, the need for RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Drive) configurations is increasingly common. Generally if RAID systems are properly configured and maintained you don’t have to worry about data loss. However in rare cases, multiple drives fail simultaneously and you can experience data corruption on top of already failed drives. Because of this we highly recommend avoiding DIY solutions for these types of recoveries. You can make the damage much worse and often irreversible.

Don’t panic just yet because we specialize in recovering data from even the most complicated RAID configurations!

Here we have cited from Seagate (drive manufacturer) just what can cause a RAID to failure.
