Commonly Experienced RAID Difficulties:

A RAID server or array can operate with as many as five hard drives at the same time, each one sending, receiving and mirroring the information sent to the others in order to keep an up to date record of the data being used by more than one person on a network. Of course nowadays with RAID technology becoming so affordable it is not just the SMEs or corporations who are turning to this technology to store all of their data. Home users are doing so to if only to stream audio and video around the home. But just as an ordinary PC or laptop hard drive can develop a fault so too can a RAID drive. Indeed the problem that many see with RAID setups is that sometimes more than one drive can fail or one drive can cause others to fail during a rebuild

RAID Hard Drive Hot Swapping Failure:

There are advantages to RAID setups that allow for hot swapping. The most common and obvious advantage being that there is no requirement to dismount a drive or indeed switch off the whole array in order to replace a faulty drive. Hot swapping refers to the practice of removing and replacing a drive whilst the array is still powered on and other drives are still sending and receiving data. If all has worked well then the drive that has been swapped will then have data sent to it from the other drives in order to create an up to the minute mirror of what has been created during its down time. However problems can still arise and there are instance when an entire RAID array will grind to a halt during a hot swap. If this should happen the recreating an accurate copy of current data can prove difficult but we at brackenell data recovery can help you recover your data should this occur.

RAID Rebuild Unsuccessful:

Rebuilding a RAID server or array is always tricky and it is worthwhile noting to anyone attempting such a procedure that it will fail unless all of the components contained within the array are of 100% working order. Failure during a RAID rebuild ranks as one of the most common reasons we are asked to help with the recovery of data from a RAID system. It would seem that to many the risk of data loss through a failed RAID rebuild is something of an unknown quantity. Contact us should you have any qualms about carrying out a RAID rebuild and we will be only too happy to help if we can

RAID Array Firmware Non Compliant:

When it comes to RAID arrays one of the top ranking issues we have been faced with is the loss or corruption of firmware data stored on the disks within the array. As almost all hard drives come with their own firmware built in and passed through a small printed circuit board, a strong power surge can render the firmware unreadable and therefore render the disk(s) useless. When this happens you may find yourself unable to repair a RAID array or reconstitute data accurately. If you should find yourself in this position please contact us here at bracknell data recovery and we will be only too pleased to offer you advice and support as well as our knowledge and use of sophisticated data recovery tools

RAID Controller Failing To Allow Mirroring:

There are times when replacing the drives in your RAID server are not enough or it doesn’t prove necessary because the problem arises from a faulty controller card. The controller card, which is built into the PC to which the RAID rack is attached may develop a problem if its firmware is corrupted or indeed simply because of general time degradation. Using the instructions provided with a new controller card may allow our clients to install new ones but having installed a new card does not always ensure an easy transition or allows for correct mirroring of the data on the enclosed disks. When this happens we are called upon to help them rectify the problem (a) ensuring the data is safely retrieved and (b) making sure the controller card is communicating correctly with the RAID rack. Contact us for more details if your controller card (new or old) is not allowing the correct storage of newly created data
