Hard drives are sensitive devices, and must be handled with extreme care. When they are opened and stripped down for repair the internals of the drive must be handled, at this point handling procedures are even more important,static charges created by the movement of the handler, and even those present in the air can cause unseen damage that could prove to be irreversible and terminal to the hard disk drive. Particles in the air can cause further problems if they interrupt the delicate air bearing that holds the read/write heads microns above the platter surface.

Losing access to your Server or RAID data can be a harrowing experience, particularly if it happens to be a file server or system running critical services such as Exchange, SQL or similar. Our recovery services can have you up and running the same day in most cases.

Data Solution UK can recover data from your failed RAID 5 array regardless of the type of server or controller that created the data. We are experts in the recovery of Microsoft, Mac, Solaris, Linux and Unix systems.

Not only can we offer to recover your data from the array, in most cases we can even resurrect the operating system and have the server up and running as it was before failure with all of your settings and data intact.

While expanding capacity from the mirroring disks the server may fail (usually around the 50% mark), or may fail during the raid rebuild. Rebuilding may additionally hang for ages and show no further progress. Disk may be shown as invalid or the raid may not start or be shown as un-mounted. The volume data appears to have gone. We recover data from the failed raid hard drives. Sometimes problems can happen when adding spare or additional disks.
