RAID Data Recovery

Avoiding the need for RAID data recovery is really about watching your drive setup to ensure that you don't have any real issues with degraded single drives. A failed single drive can quickly lead to two failed drives, which means the total failure of the array. 
Hard Drive Recovery Associates offers a variety of data recovery service solutions. We never charge for a recovery diagnosis. Our 24 hour toll-free support line is always open to customers across the country to answer your specific hard drive questions, and our engineers are experienced with nearly every kind of hard drive data recovery scenario, whether we're talking about iPhones, SSD drives, laptops, Macs or even RAID 5, 6 and 10 arrays. Even in cases of fire and water damaged hard drives, we can restore your data immediately. While we do work with customers nationwide, we have offered specialized data recovery services to the Irvine, Santa Ana and the surrounding Orange County areas since we began. For businesses, this means immediate, free server pickup on RAID recovery and repair jobs. For consumers, this means a fully-equipped and appointed clean room lab that is located directly off of the I-5. Plus, we are also just a call away.

Prevent RAID Failures with these three steps:

1.      Refrain from setting up RAID volumes utilizing all the drives from the similar tray. These storage array trays or shelves are often populated by drives numbered in sequence from the similar manufacturing line and go one after the other consecutively. There is a higher likelihood of serial drive failures if you set up RAID across a group of sequential drives. This is especially true if the failure is due to manufacturing flaws affecting each drive on the line during a specific production cycle.

Rather than making a RAID volume from the first trays’ drives, it is better to use differing drives from various trays. This simple tip can save you from costly and stressful RAID volume failures.

2.      Identify potential disk failures by taking advantage of self-monitoring analysis reporting technology (SMART) along with similar disk monitoring technologies. You can also benefit from these technologies as they can issue warning signals regarding a possible disk failure or other potential problems that may occur allowing you to replace disks sooner and with fewer complications. The sooner you can address a disk failure, the sooner you can also commence and wrap up the rebuilding process. It is a shame that a lot of companies do not make use of these built-in smart error notifications because they can really prevent small problems from blowing up into big and costly ones.

3.      Don’t try to extend the life of your drives if it was already identified as nearing failure or failing already as identified by your RAID software or controller. Seagate and other companies may tell us that most bad drives they receive are actually error-free, so why risk or put yourself in a detrimental position when RAID system monitors have already identified them as nearing failure or already bad drives. 

You only unnecessarily expose the RAID to further drive failures before appropriate interventions can be taken since you insisted on using a failing or bad drive.
