A Seagate SSHD circuit board with repaired plastic data connection point

DPHarding, We can repair the data cable attachment point on Seagate hard drives when the plastic breaks off. The repair is sufficient to allow the data to be copied off the drive to a new disk. This particular drive was only 6 months old and working fine. Unfortunately the data point attachment had been broken in that the plastic over the connector point has broken off and so the customer could not attach a data cable. Clearly there is a PCB attached to the drive which might have been replaced but the customer settled for just having the data (about 500GB)..

An Evesham Silverstor NAS drive box which incorporates 4 hard disks in Black and Silver. It is connected buy an Ethernet network cable and is basically a Thecus Network attached storage device (also sold under Allnet brand) which often fail to boot up after a power cut.
Evesham Silverstor Raid5 Share Folders

Evesham Silverstore Data Recovery, Typical problems with the Silverstor are that it looses its share folders after a power cut. The are basically re-badged Thecus NAS drives. Often the customer has tried to rebuild the raid in order to access the data but this can be dangerous as the configurations may have been wiped during power outage, so it rebuilds on default values. When we recover the Raid5 we firstly clone all the drives to preserve the data, and then re-construct the files and folders. We do not place any drives in another Evesham or Thecus as the results can be unpredictable, so we use an independent read only system for data recovery..


Easystore Shared Folder Access Recovery

An Easystore nas raid drive that was made by Acer under the Altos brand. Following a power cut this drive lost its shared folders and disappeared off the network so was sent to us for data recovery.
Easystore Recover Shared Folder Access

Acer Altos Easystore Recovery, Sometimes we feel the Easystore should be renamed the EasyLost. Unfortunately the marketing people make it too easy to invent a closely derived descriptive name for when an item fails. When the Easystore fails it tends to disappear from the network meaning you can no longer access the Home or Shared Folders. This often occurs after power outage / supply failure or sometimes no apparent reason. The Disk Change notification may display or show raid failure. Best thing to do is simply turn off the device and contact us. The less that happens to the device the better chances of file data recovery..

Netgear ReadyNAS Mirror Raid failure

ReadyNAS, Drives arrive for recovery and the history of what has been attempted so far is sometimes denied by the customer as possibly their IT job is at stake. So it was with the Netgear Readynas NV+ Mirrored Disk (Seagate Barracuda 1TB). The client said the 1st drive was "unavailable" and so only sent the 2nd Mirror drive. It appeared the Disks had been reformatted and re-partitioned in a newer Readynas. Luckily we were able to reconstruct the overwritten critical filesystem data and recover the files. .


HP Compaq SCSI Raid5 configuration

A set of SCSI hrad disks from an HP Compaq server awaiting data recovery after the raid5 array failed.
HP Compaq SCSI Raid5 configuration

Raid Configurations, There are not many companies who recover SCSI drives these days. However we like the cases no one else wants to touch. After we clone the disks (to preserve the data), the next problem is to work out the raid configuration as the customer rarely knows this since the people who set them up have long since left the company. Often they are set up as Raid 5 or Raid 5 with hot spare, stripe sizes vary. Finally we put the data on a modern USB drive which holds many times the original capacity at a fraction of the cost of the original HP Compaq system. .


Fibrecat Virtual Disk Recovery

A Fibrecat made by Fujitsu Siemens, with  12 hdd raid array and virtual disks managed by VMWare. Hard drives went f=down so we recovered the data to new hard disks.
Virtual Machine Recovery from Fibrecat

Virtual Disks, The Fujitsu Siemens Fibrecat SX80 is a 12 bay storage unit with 1TB SATA hard disks drives. A recent job saw the drives were configured under a raid 5. Overlaid on this large storage area were a series of virtual disks managed by VMWare. The unit had been used to backup data for the local County Council so when it went down on a Friday night there was a mad panic to get the data back for Monday morning. While not all data was back for Monday, several critical drives were recovered in time for Monday, to enable the Council to function, and the rest followed by Tuesday. So if you have a similar situation and need fast recovery then email or call us - details at top of the page..

Intel SS4000-E not boot up

Intel SS4000-E data recovery, The Intel SS4000-E can be configured as RAID5 Raid10 etc. Customers who experience failure often say to us that "it was working one day then failed to boot up the next day." Consequently the problem is that the drive data is not accessible from LAN Network so the Shares Directories are lost. Also the console may show he raid array configuration requests disks to be initialised and the hard disks are shown a NEW. The best thing is to pull the power off the devuice and call or email us for a quote. These units are usually recoverable in 2 days..


SCSI Proliant Server recovery failed raid

A set of 6 SCSI hard drives from a Compaq Proliant 3000 Server. They were configured in a Raid 5 array which failed to boot up, so the disks were sent to us for data recovery and repair.

Proliant Server recovery, Compaq Proliant Server SCSI Hard Drive Recovery. There are many of these old units still in service - chugging away - usually under a mountain dust in a less frequently visited corner of the server room. They were well built and cost a fortune but no-one gives them a thought until they fail and panic sets in because no one has used a scsi disk for 10 years. Often a drive has failed and - the raid 5 array is down. Do not fear - we know these units and will carefully extract your data before you finally consign your faithful proliant to computer heaven or hell..

Fibrecat data recovery, The Fujitsu Fibrecat can support Raid 5. Thr raid may not restart and some drives can be in Left Over state. Although we do not recommend it as it can corrupt data, some customers (and even Fujitsu Engineers) try to use the Trust command to get the raid re-started. No data should be written to the raid after Trust is applied as it may make recovered data corrupt/impossible. We can recover the data - we do this by making a clone of the system and only working from the cloned hard disk drives. This way the original data does not get destroyed. If your data is critical, do not mess with the system. The best thing is to power down the drives and call or email us for a quote now..
