Raid Recovery

Raid Recovery

RAID is a technology that is used to increase the performance and/or reliability of data storage. The abbreviation stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. A RAID system consists of two or more drives working in parallel.

Problems that occur in RAID Server systems:

Data recovery due to hardware failures

  • Bad sectors
  • Backup drive failures
  • Burnt or failed power supply
  • Damaged actuator
  • Damaged Motor
  • Damaged head
  • Damaged controller chip
  • Hard drive firmware corruption
  • Hard drives making clicking, grinding, or other abnormal noises
  • Hard drive head crash
  • Hard drive crashes
  • Hard disk drive malfunction
  • Hard disk drive component failure
  • Intermittent hard drive failures
  • Intermittent drive failure resulting in RAID degradation

  • Media surface contamination
  • Multiple RAID hard drive failure
  • RAID controller failure
  • RAID disk drive overheating
  • RAID drive incompatibility
  • RAID drive overheat
  • RAID Array unrecognized
  • RAID degradation caused by intermittent drive failure
  • RAID Configuration Corruption
  • RAID controller Malfunction
  • RAID Array disk failure
  • RAID Array hard drive repartition
  • RAID Array missing partitions
  • RAID server won’t boot up
  • RAID disks logical and/or mechanical failure
  • Vibration damage

Data recovery due to software failures

  • Corrupt files / data
  • Computer virus and worm
  • Corrupt or damaged files and folders
  • Computer virus or worm attack
  • Directory corruption
  • Damaged files or folders
  • File structure corruption due to disruption of logical volumes
  • Firmware corruption
  • Missing or inaccessible drive partitions/volumes
  • RAID array configuration lost or corrupted
  • Server OS unable to boot
  • Server registry misconfiguration

Data recovery due to user errors

  • Accidental physical or liquid damage
  • Accidental RAID drive/array reformat
  • Accidental repartitioning
  • Accidental file deletion/overwrite
  • Data loss due to employee sabotage
  • Incorrect replacement of drive components
  • Lost/forgot password
  • RAID array misconfiguration
  • RAID configuration overwritten
  • Water Spilled over RAID hard drive

Data recovery due to application failures

  • Applications unable to load or open files
  • Corrupted application files
  • Corrupted database
  • Deleted/missing tables
  • Locked database(s)

Data recovery due to natural causes in the area

  • Fire, flood, earth quake, lightning or storm damage
  • RAID disks failure due to power spike or fluctuation
