Data Recovery from a Buffalo Terastation Server with error. This was a Model Number TS-XEL/R 5 Series, TS-XE20TL/R5-EU which stored data on 500GB SATA hard drives in a RAID 5 Array. 3 weeks ago when we heard squeaking noise and red flashing display on the server. The errors showing were listed as:
HDI is faulty error E23.
Degrade mode – operation mode I 12.
Raid array error E13.
Peeping and red flashing display.
No initiate file at HDD3.
We switched it off immediately and restarted next day but same red flashing display appeared with same errors.
First we tried to get it repaired locally but could not find anyone. We found Apex Technology and once we contacted them the response was very quick based on the query with comprehensive information on possibility of repair and associated costs. Once we heard that our data has been successfully retrieved and that the existing server can still be reused within its limits we were very relieved and pleased. We were very happy with Apex's approach, very personable and professional. We are very pleased to have approached the Apex Technology and would happily recommend it to any professional company. Thank you Howard that you managed to retrieve all the data!.

We will have no hesitation in using or recommending your service in the future. I will be delighted if the data is can dispatched today.
THE RECOVERY ... The Evesham Silverstor XS 4x WD 800GB hard drives hdd had lost it's share folders after power system failure. The customer had attempted a raid rebuild which failed after about 10%. When Apex recover the data we do not attempt Raid rebuild - we first clone the drives to preserve the data then recover files in a read-only environment outside of the Evesham unit..

Marvellous, thank you for all your have done. The client was very impressed with the speed and level of service - we will certainly be using you again!
THE RECOVERY ... The Buffalo Terastation TS-0.6TGL/R5 0.6GB RAID5 had suffered the error E21 chip failure Network Controller. This meant no shared folder or data access as the system would not boot up..
Acer Altos Easystore - 2TB (4x1TB) hard drives in Raid 5. Access to the system was not possible, ie web interface did not work and the shared folder and files could not open. Eventually I powered off and on, after which the unit just hangs. Acer NAS controller failure - unit lost from network after turned off. Model No. NS04-4110B-ACE with 4 Seagate 7200.11 ST31000340AS disks. Thanks for this - Your service is exemplary and very much appreciated - happily (not always what you want to hear) we rarely get failures but rest assured you will be our first port of call in any further cases of this kind..

Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ (RND4410 / RND4000) disk 1 died - it contained 4x1tb HDDs with Netgear's X-RAID. We replaced the disk but the volume is refused to re-sync - can't access any of the data. Could access the drive, and view the web GUI, also saw the folder structures from a windows PC but it would not access the share and the front end said the share is offline or cannot be found. The device contained all the important documents and artwork - required 48 hour turn-around. Drives were Seagate ST1000528AS Sata. We received the drives back this morning, thank you so much for turning that around so quickly!.
HP Proliant DL385 Raid 5 6x 147GB HDD SCSI 2 failed disks running Citrix OS Operating System (Linux). Possibly a hotspare disk as well attached to scsi controller. Data Recovery required. The array consisted of 4 Fujitsu SCSI 10k rpm drives MAT3147NC with pcb no.CA21326-B42X Ultra 320, and 2 WorldDisk MXJ3147SC800600X. Both WorldDisks failed and remained totally silent when switched on, they did not spin up or boot when powered. The recovery was very good news..
Thecus N3200PRO 3 disk raid 5 - data recovery - simply was working then 1 hour later failed raid array. 3x Blue WD Caviar 320gb hdds. You may recall you recovered the data of a Thecus drive for us last year - you did a very good job. Thank you again..

2x1TB Seagate Barracuda LP HDD from Iomega Ix2-200 Mirrored Array. Possibly corrupt Superblock. A large pdf photoshop file was being saved just prior to the corruption / damage to the NAS. Since then the Iomega device has booted up but not been able to see the drive data. Iomega have exhausted all options and not been able to access the data. The array is visible but volumes will not mount due to no secondary superblock and needing a clean structure for the raid. I want to say thank you so much for helping us out, I can maybe get a good nights sleep tonight knowing we can operate fully again. Many thanks from me and my team..

4x 750GB Hard Disks from Easystore Altos. We had a RAID 5 with 4 hard drives. The RAID was working well, the discs are fine, can access the Home folder, but the rest only see the shared folders, but not their content. This happened after an unexpected power off. FalconStor filesystem. Thank you very much for your work, we are very happy..

Iomega STORECENTRE 150d 2TB NAS with 4x 750GB Seagate SATA Hard disks. Disk volume unreadable - the system NAS crashed after power outage. The unit did not start anymore but the disk status led blinks red/green. Main board defect, possibly header corrupt for the raid 5 configuration. The disk arrived this week, was busy so I\'m a bit late in the feedback. Have loaded the data on the new NAS. It looks fine. Thanks for your support..

FibreCat SX80-i iSCSI Raid 5 ESX VM-ware Virtual Machines - data recovery. 12x 750Gb Seagate Hard Drives ok - Raid Controller failed. System NAS crashed after unexpected power outage. 11 drives were in the raid array and disk 12 was Hot Spare. After the crash disks 2 6 and 10 were in Left Over state. Fujitsu engineer applied the Trust Command but the raid would not start. There were 4x 2TB LUN's each formatted with VMFS. The VMDK files were a mixture of Linux EXT and Windows NTFS virtual disks. Thank you also for recovering our data, we have a lot of users who were without services, including Belgian administrations. I will recommend your services....It was a pleasure to work with such an expert like you..

Thecus i5500 iSCSI NAS 5x 1TB drives in Raid5 array, Disk 4 failed and was replaced 10 days ago, now disk 1 failed and says that d1 and d4 no longer part of raid. No data access as 2 disk are missing from the RAID 5. Thecus service engineers could not gain access to the unit remotely as the unit would not allow them to repair it. The unit provided iSCSI partitions formatted in Windows NTFS file system. Thank you - it is reassuring to see some familiar images again..

Acer Altos Easystore - stopped talking on network - drive lights appear ok. Data Recovery required from the 4x Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB drives. System was setup as raid 5 and failed over the holiday. Could not find Public Directory. You have done a marvellous job. Well done..
Iomega Store Center Ix2 failed and I needed to recover the data stored on the device. The issue was that the device would not power on and a red light is flashing on the front. A friend has taken a look, possibly a mistake having read your site. I insisted no further action was taken as I believe the drives are configured in the RAID mode, and therefore I hope to get my data back! The device had 2x Seagate 500GB HDD in raid..... I've hooked the drive up to a USB caddy and I can see all data. Thank you for the service, it's good to have our data back..
Buffalo Linkstation Duo 1TB NAS drive failed to boot up when powered. It contained 2 off 500GB 3.5 inch Samsung SATA hard drives. The Linkstation was incorrectly switched off and now only enters Emergency Mode when switched on. Both hard drives inside it remained silent and would not spin up. Thanks for rescuing our files so quickly..
Buffalo Terastation HS-DHTGL/R5 with 4x Seagate 7200 250gb hard drives. The terastation would start to boot up then fail with System Error E04 - can't load kernel fault message. Obviously we could not access it via the network. The recovery was excellent news. Thank you very much..
Buffalo Terastation HD-H1.0TGL/R5 4x250gb WD2500 Western Digital Hard Drives. The Network connection appears to be broken - no activity from the Link/Act LED flashing. 1 disk had red status light and stopped syncing. Thanks for the speedy turn-around..
We had installed a netgear nas SC101 but had problems with one 200 MB hard drive. The Netgear SC101 has 2 Maxtor DiamondMax hdd in separate use with separate drives (not use as a mirror to system). The Disk spins
and is recognised by the Netgear software. The Netgear Smart Wizard shows the drive as available, but there is
no way to attach the drives of one of the hard disks, so there must be something broken. The other Hard Disk is still available and all partitions / drives are attachable and reachable. The failure happened after firmware update, after this step, we could only reach the one of both hard drives. Thank you for your help, have a wonderful weekend..

WD MyBook World Edition (blue ring leds) NAS - broken mirror raid 1 array.- WD7500AAKS 750gb drives x2. Possible attempt by raid controller to rebuild the array. One drive failed. The other does not show any files or folders when connected to the computer. we can confirm that we are in safe receipt of the drive. Not only that but we have now added it to a workstation (our server is SCSI, no SATA), with drives mapped to it, so we're back online. I see the folder structure appears to have been retained, which is a bonus. Your assistance is appreciated..

Acer Altos Easystore NAS drives. There were 2 Easystore raids each with 4 Seagate 500GB Hard Drives. No longer gave access to disks.
Without disks inserted, the unit restarts and can access on the web interface. Inserting disks into it gave no access. Powered off by front button, after reboot both NAS are unreachable over the LAN network, i LED blinks and all disk lights are green. Without disks the NAS gets default parameters and works fine. We have reset it by pressing the button but no effect. I've just checked the files in the external drive and i confirm that your work has been perfect. Thanks..
Dell PowerEdge 2850 PERC 4DI Raid5 SCSI Data Recovery. The Raid array consisted of 4 146GB SCSI SCA-80 U320 connected drives. The disks were fine but they have corrupted RAID database information from a faulty RAID controller, which has run in degraded mode. The drives were Maxtor Atlas 10k Ultra320, Seagate Cheetah 10k.7 ST3146707LC, and Cheetah 15K.5 ST3146855LC. That's a huge relief for us as it will save us a couple of months redeveloping a lot of web forms.
Thanks for looking at this so quickly..
Terastation failed to start from power failure just booting into "Loading Kernel". After several attempts to restart it went to EM mode and could not be recovered. Buffalo suggested firmware update, it did re-boot it then power-cycled again but would not re-start. Terastation could be seen by NAS Navigator, on PC but not in File Browser or firmware update utility. Now displays RAID failure, HD1 faulty. No file/folder Shares are visible. Buffalo Teratstation Raid E13 error in array D12 running degrade mode drive 1 fail - not visible on network - data recovery. 4x500GB Samsung HD501LJ hard drives. Thank you very much - got all the disks and data back now - we shall pass on your details to others who may be in need..
Buffalo NAS - Linkstation Quad LS Q4 0TL/R5 4x 1TB Samsung hard disk drives. Correspondence with Buffalo Tech suggests that the motherboard has failed.

Buffalo Terastation lost RAID 5 (4 x 500GB Hard Disk Drives) after a Power cut while the NAS box was online. 2 disks were showing as faulty so Data Recovery from the share folders was required. Thanks again for all your help..
Terastation Raid5 Data Recovery - Disk2 failed. Then took it out on advice from Buffalo but could not get the data as Raid had failed. They suggested it needed professional data recovery service. I have had the disk today. Thanks once again for the speedy turn around.
Seagate Sata Hard drives from Iomega StorCenter Pro 150d 1T network hard disk, we had a problem in shared folder, the Network Access Denied on shared folder on Iomega StorCente, it seem that lost windows share folders. We could access to the Iomega StorCenter and see all the setting for it, and when click on disk management we saw the capacity properties (how many GB used and how many GB free), we saw all options, but not access the share folder and see our data. Thank you so much for help and cooperation..

Buffalo Terastation with RAID5 array on 4x 250GB IDE hard drives. The setup console/web screen claimed 2 drives in the RAID 5 array have failed. I'm now as happy as can be, and have been able to restore all the affected files from this backup. Thanks again for your help with this. Its great to have been able to restore the images we would otherwise have lost..
Hypersys O.E., Attica, GREECE.
Intel NAS contained 500GB seagate SATA Hard Drives with RAID-5 configuration. The problem was caused by an unexpected power failure. On system boot, the web configuration console requested the disks to be initialized and their status is now New instead of RAID5 array. The initialization phase has not been kicked off, as this would probably have deleted all the data that is already there. Once again thank you for the recovery. Hopefully I will not need anymore..

After a power outage on the Fujitsu Siemens Fibrecat SX80i the Virtual File System disappeared. The system consisted of 2x 2TB drives VMFS configured as Raid0 stripe used with ESX iSCSI. Apex was the first company we talked to that could recover Virtual Filesystems. Package arrived onsite at 10:15, and is all up and running now! Once again you have performed miracles, thank you. I hope you don't take this the wrong way but I hope it is a few more years down the line before we need to do business with you again..

External Network Storage System (NAS200 Linksys / Cisco) containing 1 Western Digital SATA II HD 400GB (WD RE2 WD4000YS). During a file transfer, the connection with my NAS200 system suddenly got interrupted. From that moment on the NAS200 system asked for a user/password whenever I tried to connect to the external drive.As I had never configured a password, the login always fails (even with admin/admin). After resetting the NAS200 I could connect again to the NAS200 using the IP address and a browser.The NAS200 indicates that a drive is available with zero, 0GB Disk Space and zero, 0GB Free Space.
I could no longer access my files, so, I guessed I have a corrupted hard disk. ..The hard drives have arrived.
I just connected my laptop to the new hdd and it seems that I can access all files ;-) Many thankx for your support and recovery. It was a pleasure to work with you..
I had a Buffalo Raid5 3tb Terastation Live with 4 disks. It worked fine except cannot access old shares directories. New shares can be added/accessed OK but since the drive filled up the shares created before this are now inaccessible. Possibly shares went corrupt while deleting files. A message suggests "You might not have permission to use this network resource contact the administator of this server to find out if you have access permissions" and "The network path was not found". The nas navigator could see the terastation but folder is not accessible. Fantastic news on the recovery!.

I had a Buffalo Linkstation HS-DHGL-500 NAS that has the error sound then flashing red light (flashes 6 times).
meaning that it no longer recognises the hard drive. It made a siren like sound e.g. a low tone followed by a higher tone. Network share unavailable - no access to disk. The linkstation remained totally silent with flashing red led. 3 flashes - Partition problem with hard drive. I did not Reformat the hard drive as I did not want to loose the files. I have now received the data. Thanks again..
There were 9x 300GB SAS disk drives from RAID 6 HP MSA2324fc G2. 3 disks in the RAID6 ADG Array failed and the MSA put the vdisk (virtual disk ) offline. Smart warnings were shown on the console and the disks brought back online using the Trust command. The RAID appeared online and rebuilt using a hot spare - one volme was available on VMWARE hosts but others were not. 3 drives marked as LEFTOVR (leftover). Needed to recover vmdk file representing a drive from a vmware virtual machine. All the vdisks were vmware vmfs format.Thank you very much (for the recovery work), that is great news..
Buffalo Terastation Pro, 4x Internal Samasung SATA hard drives. At least one disk has an error and RAID rebuild has not been successful. Various messages have flashed up including I18, E13, E14, E23. The data appears to be accessible, but any attempt to copy large amounts of files fails after a period of time. The recovery is great news. Thanks again.
There was a Dell Perc SCSI Raid Server containing 5xQuantum 18GB hard disk drives in a RAID5 configuration. One day the Raid failed and some hard drives were showing offline in the configuration screen so data recovery was required. Previous Raid rebuild attempts had failed. Thanks - this job was a huge relief for us..

Altos Easystore 2TB, 4 x 500Gb in Raid 5. We could not browse data from network, error log showed active directory not synced. Powered unit off from within the console software, when it switched back on it did not appear on network.Pressed the reset button (oops) unit now appears on network but will not use preset IP, replies on DHCP.
Could not access console software, unless unit is powered up without the drives installed, if they are plugged in then it powers up at the same IP but cannot access data or console screen.
Unit gave no indication of hdd or raid errors. This is the second one we have had problems with, the 1st constantly came up with a disk change screen, had to reformat it. I have just noticed your email from last night (do you ever go home?). Great news (on the recovery), thanks..
The Sagitta raid system failed due to power supply / raid card failure. Thanks for the recovery. That's good news - thought it'd be wrapped in red tape for at least a month!! Would it be fine to come and collect the drive tomorrow morning? Thanks for the fantastic service!.
E21 Error - Buffalo TeraStation Pro data recovery. I am super pleased to say that everything has arrived and I have already connected the WD drive up and am currently going through the data and it looks really good so far.

iSCSI Buffalo Terastation Rack Mounted TS-RI4.0TGL/RR-EU serial 4584308490031. RAID 5 2x LUNs with NTFS and VMFS partitions. Drive 3 had an error, the unit tried to rebuild but got in a loop of rebuild. Buffalo support said take the drive out, format it and put it back in to see if it would rebuild. Unfortunately it then thought the drive was ok but showed an error on the Raid and would not offer a rebuild option.Just to say a big THANK YOU for all your help in getting the data back for me. I have (just!) now got all the VMs transferred back over and up and running..
Iomega Nas P435m 320GB Network Storage that freezes when booting up.we removed the 4 raid 5 drives and fitted them into a pc to see the raid status and the drives all say failed. Raid 5 consisted of 4 x 80gb Hitachi hdd. Thanks for having recovered my files..

Can I thank you personally for all you hard work to get us back up & running again. Many thanks.
Recovery of missing Western Digital NetCenter 500Gb shared folder was missing - the configuration screen is still visible but the files were not. The reason for the failure seems to be that I inadvertently filled up the drive completely. I received the recovery drive in the post this morning and the files seem to be there. Thank you..
The Terastation showed a raid error and ethernet failure E21 which needed files recovering. I wanted to place on record how very impressed I have been with your data recovery service. As you are well aware, these incidents when they occur, are quite harrowing. The files which you recovered represent several year’s photographs taken by our Publicity Department.
I was impressed with:
. The way in which you kept me informed at every stage
. The speed at which you responded
. Your professionalism
And most of all, that you managed to recover the data! You will see that I have copied this reply to a contact at Livingstone Solutions. These are a small firm of IT consultants who have helped me with various IT issues. I told them of my data problem and they were interested to know our experience of dealing with your company.On the basis of this incident I can thoroughly recommend your services to anyone.

The Redhat Linux 9 Raid-1 Mirror array consisted of 2x 73GB SCSI Drives with ext3 filesystem. Unexpected / sudden failure of the Power supply caused one disk not to be recognised. The scsi controller error message was "ASYN start unit request failed". Data hard drive was delivered before 9am - I have plugged drive into a PC and it works a treat..
QNAP 409 pro. Problem when migrating from Mirror RAID 1 to 4 Disk RAID 5. The NAS reported one disk as invalid;, which was removed half way through the migration. The migration got to about 50% . After removal of HDD4 the NAS reported it was ’rebuilding 1%’ but no further progress. Qnap support then said that the volume data had gone so I contacted Apex for re-build. Thanks for that, I’ll arrange payment today. Looks like all the data. Cheers..
The Intel SS4000E INNS04-4200 incorporated 2 x 1TB Western Digital WD1000FYPS sata hard disk drives in RAID1 mirrored configuration.

St Joseph’s Catholic School, Staffordshire
Thanks for your hard work with the recovery - that last data dump you did for us had everything on it we needed! 3x73GB SCSI RAID 5 Netware Server..
The reality of my situation was pretty grim with having the drive "Crash" but also not being visible in the BIOS, as well as being the primary drive in a RAID-0 stripped array - I really thought my chips were up! I think my situation had to be one of the worst you could get, and I still have my data at the end of it. All my data files have been recovered and precious irreplaceable files have also been recovered.
I just wanted to thank you for your help and because of the nature of my work I often get people asking me for PC advise - If anyone ever has a hard drive crash there is only one place I’ll be sending them.

Buffalo Terastation Pro (4x 250gb hard disk drives). One disk failed and a rebuild was attempted for RAID-5. The unit was not allowing access to shares and not allow to mount raid the Raid array. Terastation LED lights flashed red, beeped and gave error E13. On the web interface disk 2 was showing as "not connected". Thanks I’ve received the package, just put this recovery disk in the computer. Nearly all the photos seem to be there, which is a great relief, and my backups. Thanks again.

Quantum CX13A2F1. I have received the discs and am relieved and pleased with the result. All through the crisis of the loss of function of my hard disc you have provided the very best possible customer care and support. The worry about the potential loss of data was greatly eased by the confidence and reassurance that you provided and inspired. From the very first contact with Apex, right through each of your follow up calls I knew that I was in the hands of a highly professional and caring organization. The care that was taken to prepare for receipt of the disc, the research into product and serial details, acknowledgment of receipt of the disc, confirmation of work starting, advice of successful recovery � these were much appreciated and confidence building messages. Even through a weekend, I was provided with excellent feedback. Apex sets a new and valuable standard in IT care and support. Even the giants in the industry pale into insignificance. Very well done. .

I can only describe your expertise as "brilliant"!! I am absolutely delighted at receiving ALL of my data from my "dead" memory stick. On Monday evening I was absolutely distraught at the thought of the loss of hundreds of hours of preparation of lessons and work. I really didn’t realise the actual quantity until you e-mailed the 15 pages of listed files on Tuesday when you had already re-assured me that you had sorted it. What a relief and yes, you were still working and e-mailing during the late evening. That meant I actually had more than the 3 hours of nightmare sleep that I got on the night it happened. I have and will recommend your service to ALL. Thank you again for your speedy and most helpful service..

GM International Information Systems,
I would recommend Apex Technology to anyone who has a problem retrieving data from ICT hardware which becomes faulty. I thought I’d lost two years hard work on a USB pen which would not boot-up. I nearly hard a heart attack and could not sleep for three days. I called my ICT friends who told me to find someone ‘good’ to retrieve my data. I looked up different companies on the internet and sent my disc to one. They told me that the data on my USB pen was not recoverable and I there was not the slightest possibility that an ICT engineer in the UK could recover the data. I was totally distraught but decided to try another firm. My husband advised to use Goggle to find a firm which specialised in recovering data from USB pens as well as other hard drives. Thank God , my search discovered Apex Technology Limited! After briefly speaking to them I sent my pen to be investigated and he told me in less than 24rs that he had recover the data on my pen and was sending the information in the post. This was really quick and I was really happy because the data would arrive in time for me to use the information in a head teachers conference I was scheduled to deliver during the following week. . The service at Apex is wonderful, efficient, effective, polite and very reasonable. I will back up all information stored on my USB pens in future but also keep Apex in my address book and will not hesitation recommending Apex to anyone in the future..

Thank you so much for your time and attention to my problem! I will remember about your company in case I ever have any other problem with my pictures! And I will recommend you to my friends!Thank very much again! Sincerely, Svetlana Markova.

Data Recovery HiSpace USB Drive 128MB. I would just like to say thanks for all your efforts and speedy responses. I was so impressed with your support and quick responses that I have already recommended your services to a couple of colleagues who I hope will contact you with the issues around their lost data. Many thanks once again..
What can I say? I cannot thank you enough for finding the files on my usb flash drive. As you know, I had hours and hours of work stored on it and I was absolutely distraught when my local computer shop told me there was no chance I would be able to retrieve the data at all, no matter what. I was delighted when I saw your website and even more chuffed when you replied so quickly and positively to my problem.The same night as I felt all was lost, you very quickly reassured me and gave me the confidence that you would, indeed, find my data and therefore save me hours of repeating work. There was no way that I would have remembered every detail of my files and the amount of work I would have had to repeat would have been unbearable. Therefore, I found your service priceless and was more than happy with the reasonable price for the service.Throughout the whole process I couldn’t have faulted your company, I received up to date emails with your progress which confirmed the data being retrieved. I think the turnaround was far less than 48 hours, and this was only because I couldn’t get to a Post Office immediately – unbelievable!I really cannot thank you enough; I think I’ve said that about a hundred times in my emails to you, but its true! Your service was fantastic and although I have learned a very valuable lesson about saving my work, everywhere, every time, it is still great to know that you’re there waiting to rescue others like me, even after everyone else has gone home from work!I would strongly recommend your service to all..
