Data Recovery West Berkshire: Our team of expert data recovery engineers have been asked a lot over the last 16 + years to help with the retrieval of data from RAID servers that have either failed because of problems with their hard drives or because of issues that have arisen during the rebuild process. With over a decade and a half’s experience in this field plus up-to-the-minute technology and our own bespoke recovery techniques we are the premier data recovery solution when it comes to problems with RAID arrays in the West Berkshire and Berkshire area. Call us today on 01865 593000 for more information.
What is RAID? Redundant Array of Inexpensive/Independent Disks. What is it used for? Its primary use is for storing and accessing information across a network by a number of users who can make changes to that information as they go without having to shut down for other users to access it. What can go wrong? As our data recovery West Berkshire engineers can vouch – a great many things and over the last 16 + years they have been and this is where we have stepped in.
RAID devices as we have already said are primarily used amongst those businesses where it is necessary for the workforce to have access to the data at the same time; for example the accounts department and the production department may require access to a customers’ file in order to calculate an order and produce its corresponding invoice. When problems occur with such activities because of issues with the internal hard drives, controller software or hardware controller, our data recovery West Berkshire team are on hand to help.
With our RAID recovery solutions we enable the user to continue using their data after we have successfully recovered it to a new medium or storage device or had it reinstalled to a new drive within the RAID array. We do this in several ways and provide several levels of data recovery based on the timescale required for recovery; which in the case of RAID devices and their specific use within the business office, can be urgent.
We were told ‘Hot Swap’ was the way to go!
Our data recovery West Berkshire engineers have been asked to step in when the rebuild of a RAID device has failed because of issues with the new hard drive. If it weren’t bad enough that the drive’s older counterpart has failed and needs recovering now the RAID server needs rebuilding to accommodate a new one! This can be frustrating and time consuming. New hard drives are not always compatible with existing RAID devices if they have not been formatted correctly or if the controller card governing their interface falls outside a certain age.
Are you having difficulty with a RAID device? Is your workforce unable to access the data they need because of RAID problems? If so contact our data recovery West Berkshire today on 01865 593000 and speak to a member of our team who will provide you with (a) a no obligation quotation (this may include an additional charge if the drive has suffered mechanical failings), (b) an explanation of our No Fix No Fee guarantee and (c) an initial diagnosis of the problem. If you are happy with what we have told you and would like us to recover the data we ask that you send the affected drive to us (we only need the drive not the entire housing) at our data recovery West Berkshire and Berkshire centre. You can do this by post, courier or if it is really urgent you can deliver it in person.
Once we have the drive our data recovery West Berkshire team will make a definitive diagnosis of the problem and communicate with you by email. Our return email will detail not only the cause of the problem but how we aim to reunite you with your data and indeed a detailed list of all the data we can recover (if the data is larger in volume that 30GBs our engineer will discuss the option to purchase an external storage device from our stores) and if you are happy to proceed we ask that you make payment to us by credit or debit card or BACS transfer. On receipt of payment our engineers will recover the data to your new media or storage device and return it to you via next day courier (this is included in your quote). For more information on how we can recover your data and for a no obligation quote call our team today on 01865 593000 (our telephone lines are manned 9am to 6pm and our data recovery centre is open for business during those hours also).
