RAID Data Recovery

Raid Data Recovery Services

With alot of experience on Raid recovery and through our advanced and up to date technology.East Africa Recovery Experts has the capacity and technical expertise required to solve complex, technically challenging RAID recoveries.

We use advanced data recovery tools and techniques to repair, recover and rebuild inaccessible data from all types of RAID systems and situations such as:

  • Any RAID level, RAID controller or RAID architecture
  • Any hard drive type, make or model
  • All causes of data loss — from simple to the most complex and catastrophic data loss situations, including data loss resulting from human error, natural disasters, power loss or surge, logical or mechanical failures and viruses.

Note: Attempting to recover a RAID without an experienced data recovery specialist can put your critical data at further risk. When hardware malfunction is a component of the problem, permanent destruction of data can occur with failed recovery attempts.

Tips on using RAID
  • Never replace a failed drive with a drive that was part of a previous RAID system; always zero out the replacement drive before using
  • If a drive is making unusual mechanical noises, turn it off immediately and get assistance
  • Have a valid backup before making hardware or software changes
  • Label the drives with their position in a RAID array
  • Do not run volume repair utilities on suspected bad drives
  • Do not run defragmenter utilities on suspected bad drives
  • In a power loss situation with a RAID array, if the file system looks suspicious, or is un-mountable, or the data is inaccessible after power is restored, do not run volume repair utilities

    Hi

    I have a server that was running RAID 5. Unfortunately 2 disks failed. Now my server cannot boot. Iam afraid the RAID is corrupt and I have some critical data that needs to be salvaged which was not backed up. What is the possibility of getting that data back or the RAID back online.

    Hi ,

    We can help you get the data back, step one will be for you to bring over the Server Hard Drives (properly marked) so that we can perform a Free Diagnosis. After that we will furnish you with a Diagnosis Report as well as a Quote for the Actual Recovery Work.

    Diagnosis takes approximately 24 – 36 Hrs then after that we will send a quotation based on what we find.

    You can send the device (properly protected from damage) via courier services ie TNT Express, DHL etc or

    Visit us at Comet House, 1st Floor, Monrovia Street, Next to Anniversary Towers contact us on +254716079961 / +254729691003 for directions.

    Tips to avoid further data loss;
    Don’t try unprofessional data recovery attempts.
    Don’t copy new data to the device in case of formatting or deletion.
    Don’t try to rebuild the raid in case of RAID cases, it might render your data unrecoverable.

    Have a great day.

    Regards
