Highly Recommend!!

When your external hard drive takes a crap it can be a stressful and uncertain time. However, Secure Data Recovery and Jake Gambatese changed that and made the experience the best it could possibly be, considering the circumstances. Excellent customer service and communication throughout the entire process. They went above and beyond and even had my data back to me sooner than anticipated. I h... Read More

exceptional service

I (unfortunately) have had two issues with data on hard drives being lost. I have used Secure Data Recovery on both occasions, and they have been exceptional on both occasions. They made a complete recovery of data, even after my own IT guy could not recover the data. They finished the job quicker than anticipated, and quicker than they had promised. Scott, my local contact, has kept in great... Read More

Amazing Job!

Jake was amazing to work with. My drive was diagnostic fast and then the recovery didn’t take long either. Email were answered almost instantly and the process was amazing without any hiccups. My replacement drive was sent out overnight and I received it the day after the payment was made. Amazing! I hope to never run into a problem with my drives again but if I ever do I know Jake and Secure Data... Read More

RAID 5 recovery with double disk failure

Scott McMacken and the Secure Data team were able to help recover a failed RAID array and lost data. He kept in constant contact with us throughout the process and explained everything in detail. I recommend Secure Data Recovery for recovering your data in any of the scenarios for having great communication, easy process, and excellent results.

Data Recovery Success

I have been running a personal server for years that had 35.34TB at point of loss. Unwisely, I did not have proper backups of my data due to cost considerations. Little did I consider the cost of not having appropriate backups when needed. After more than one of my disks in my RAID5 bit the dust simultaneously, i was in a tight spot. I contacted Secure Data Recovery and Jake Gambatese was incredib... Read More

Great service, great results

tl; dr: expensive service, great customer service, great results.

For almost 20 years I''ve run my own file server. 4 disk RAID5. I''ve lost many, many disks over the years to normal failures, but through diligent management, never more than one disk at a time. Long story short, the entire server dropped one foot to the ground, causing problems in all four disks at once. I spent weeks t... Read More

SAN & NAS RAID Recovery SAN & NAS RAID Recovery

SAN & NAS RAID Recovery

While vastly different by design, SAN and NAS data recovery requires similar methodology. Our RAID recovery engineers specialize in rebuilding the RAID architecture of complex file-based and block-based storage systems for the best results with NAS and SAN data recovery. In addition, our team holds an immense library of custom tools required to address many of the proprietary NAS, SAN and SAN-NAS hybrid operating systems and non-standard file systems that challenge other data recovery companies to deliver results with minimum downtime.

Hybrid & Nested RAID Recovery Hybrid & Nested RAID Recovery

Hybrid & Nested RAID Recovery

These RAID types combine two or more levels, blending the best RAID attributes to improve redundancy or increase performance of standard RAID configurations. Still, no storage is failproof and these RAIDs still fail from multiple causes such as disk errors, multiple disk failures, and human errors. Recovering data from hybrid and nested RAID arrays requires specialized data recovery techniques and tools uniquely available to Secure Data Recovery Services.

Virtualization Storage Data Recovery Virtualization Storage Data Recovery

Virtualization Storage Data Recovery

With the wide adoption of virtualization software in most SMB and enterprise environments due to their many benefits, performing RAID Recovery services commonly requires us to repair damaged hypervisors, virtual machines, snapshots, and virtual disks as part of our scope of work. Our data recovery engineers specialize at restoring data from storage virtualization failures caused by read errors, hardware failure, ransomware attacks, and human errors.

Server Data Recovery Server Data Recovery

Server Data Recovery

Data loss due to a failed server is especially costly since the impact of inaccessible data spreads to numerous endpoints instantly and can grind productivity to a stop. Our server data recovery services are uniquely skilled at recovering everything from single disk to large cluster computing, app, web, mail, print, and database servers with maximum efficiency to get our customers back online with minimum downtime.

What NOT to Do When Experiencing RAID Failure What NOT to Do When Experiencing RAID Failure

What NOT to Do When Experiencing RAID Failure

Limiting the time an array runs in degraded mode greatly decreases the risk of permanent data loss. When experiencing data loss on a RAID array NEVER:

  • Attempt to reset the RAID
  • Re-insert and force online RAID members
  • Try to repair file system by running CHKDSK or fsck
  • Read from drives making abnormal noises or have SMART errors & bad sectors
  • Run software-based recovery programs

These actions will cause damage to the drives, destroy redundancy, damage file systems, and permanently damage the data.

What to Do When Experiencing RAID Failure What to Do When Experiencing RAID Failure

What to Do When Experiencing RAID Failure

When experiencing a RAID failure, immediately shut down the system and call a data recovery professional.

  • Make detailed notes of the events which occurred (noises, power, and other anomalies)
  • Label the sequential order of the drives in the array
  • Compose a list of crucial and critical data, including file types and volume/data size

Detailed information will significantly help cut the data recovery turnaround time.

Common causes of RAID Failure

When RAID data is lost or compromised, production comes to an abrupt stop — and the results can be lethal to your business and your bottom line.

While RAID configurations have higher redundancy and fault tolerance, in many cases, one disk failure can affect the entire configuration. Your array can experience data loss due to a variety of scenarios including:

  • Accidental data deletion
  • Formatted partitions
  • Virus infection
  • File system corruption
  • RAID controller failure
  • Incorrect RAID rebuilds
  • Single or multiple drive failures
  • Failed Rebuilding of RAID Volumes
  • Power surge
  • Extensive time required for a rebuild
  • Abnormal termination of a rebuild
  • An uncorrectable read error has occurred
  • A replacement drive has failed
  • Another drive in the array has failed
Secure RAID Recovery Process Secure RAID Recovery Process

Secure RAID Recovery Process

How does RAID recovery work? Our process begins with a diagnostic review of your failed RAID. During the examination our team will evaluate the condition of the RAID members, scan, and analyze the file system, RAID/SAN/NAS metadata to determine the probability of a successful recovery.

Once the examination is complete, we provide a quote for the recovery and finalize the scope of work. Upon approval, our team will repair damaged RAID members and image them to preserve the original state of the disk. The final stage is to perform RAID assembly, SAN assembly, file system repair, or database repair (SQL, Exchange, Oracle, etc.) as needed and test the integrity of the critical files upon request. To complete the process, our technicians transfer the recovered data to a new secure FIPS 140-2 LEVEL 3 Validated storage device and prepare it for return shipping or customer pickup.
