Don’t Panic, we can successfully recover all RAID Arrays! Have one or more drives drop from your array? Email now for a free quote!

RAID Arrays we recover:





RAID 0+1

RAID 1+0

Servers are likely needed to be picked up rather than shipped.  Due to hardware-based RAID’s we would likely need the complete server to recover the data. We can come onsite to recover data off of servers at an hourly rate. Call to schedule a time for onsite data recovery.

Servers are quoted at a different price based on the hardware setup and the type of failure.  Flat-rate pricing does not apply to RAID’s or Servers using RAID.

RAID (originally redundant array of inexpensive disks, now commonly redundant array of independent disks) is a data storage virtualization technology that combines multiple physical disk drive components into a single logical unit for the purposes of data redundancy, performance improvement, or both.[1]
Data is distributed across the drives in one of several ways, referred to as RAID levels, depending on the required level of redundancy and performance. The different schemas, or data distribution layouts, are named by the word RAID followed by a number, for example RAID 0 or RAID 1. Each schema, or RAID level, provides a different balance among the key goals: reliability, availability, performance, and capacity. RAID levels greater than RAID 0 provide protection against unrecoverable sector read errors, as well as against failures of whole physical drives.

Resilient File System (ReFS),[2] codenamed “Protogon”,[3] is a Microsoft proprietary file system introduced with Windows Server 2012 with the intent of becoming the “next generation” file system after NTFS.
ReFS was designed to overcome issues that had become significant over the years since NTFS was conceived, which are related to how data storage requirements had changed. The key design advantages of ReFS include automatic integrity checking and data scrubbing, removal of the need for running chkdsk, protection against data degradation, built-in handling of hard disk drive failure and redundancy, integration of the RAID functionality, a switch to copy/allocate on write for data and metadata updates, handling of very long paths and filenames, and storage virtualization and pooling, including almost arbitrarily sized logical volumes (unrelated to the physical sizes of the used drives).
These requirements arose from two major changes in storage systems and usage — the size of storage in use (large or massive arrays of multi-terabyte drives now being fairly common), and the need for continual reliability. As a result, the file system needs to be self-repairing (to prevent disk checking from being impractically slow or disruptive), along with abstraction or virtualization between physical disks and logical volumes.
ReFS was initially added to Windows Server 2012 only, with the aim of gradual migration to consumer systems in future versions (although modifications were quickly developed by enthusiasts for the latter). The initial versions removed some NTFS features, such as disk quotas, alternate data streams, and extended attributes, causing concern among onlookers. Some of these were re-implemented in later versions of ReFS.
In early versions (2012–2013), ReFS was similar or slightly faster than NTFS in most tests,[4] but far slower when full integrity checking was enabled, a result attributed to the relative newness of ReFS.[5][6] Pre-release concerns were also voiced by one blogger over Storage Spaces, the storage system designed to underpin ReFS, which reportedly could fail in a manner that prevented ReFS from recovering automatically
