Expert Drobo RAID Data Recovery
Drobo RAIDs were created to be a stronger backup solution than a traditional RAID configuration, but they are still susceptible to data loss. Secure Data Recovery engineers have years of experience working with all types of Drobo RAID systems.
The Drobo is a highly specialized RAID system, and our technicians have the experience to treat all Drobo arrays safely.
A Drobo BeyondRAID system can be formatted with a single or dual redundancy. Secure Data Recovery has experience working with all RAID configurations and Drobo models including:
- Drobo Mini, Drobo S
- Drobo Pro, ProFS
- Drobo 5C, 5D, 5N
- Drobo B810n, B810i
- Drobo B1200i
- DroboElite and more
Importance of Professional Drobo Recovery
There are several benefits to having a Drobo system. You can add drives of different storage capacities and they do not need to be placed in a certain order within the configuration. You can also add in new hard drives at any time and the Drobo will adapt and copy data to the new drive. While it can withstand one drive failure, anything larger can result in serious data loss.
It is important to choose a professional data recovery company like Secure Data Recovery to work on your sensitive Drobo configuration. Our engineers work in the country’s only Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, giving failed devices the best chance at a full recovery. We have the advanced technology and proprietary tools to keep you from losing critical files and years’ worth of personal data.

Failure Scenarios for Drobo RAID
A Drobo RAID configuration can fail due to a variety of issues and Secure Data Recovery engineers have experience working with all of them. Failure scenarios for Drobo include:

Drobo Data Recovery Process
We begin the recovery process by diagnosing the Drobo configuration and analyzing the drives. After the analyzation process, we give our customers a full diagnostic report complete with an estimated turnaround time and price quote.
Engineers begin the recovery process by imaging all of the drives in the configuration. They perform a reassembly on the damaged drives in the configuration and repair file systems as needed when imaging.The process produces a copy of the data to work from, keeping the device in its original condition.
Drobos are commonly used with home users, but are many times more complex recovery cases than some enterprise systems. We have an overall success rate of 96% for recovery on all types of media and promise that if we are unable to recover your information, no one else can.
What To Do When Your Drobo Experiences a Failure
People use Drobo systems because of their low maintenance. The configuration is supposed to rebuild itself automatically if one drive fails. Unfortunately, one drive failure can easily lead to errors on another member of the configuration. Once there are two drive failures in a single redundancy or more than two failures in a dual redundancy in your Drobo, you need a professional to recover your data.
When your Drobo fails, do not attempt to rebuild it yourself. These drives need to be handled in a Cleanroom environment to ensure the best possible recovery outcome. Pay attention to the lights on your device. When a slot turns red, that signifies a failure and when you have multiple failures, immediately power down your Drobo and send it to a professional.
