RAID Recovery Yorkshire – Reuniting You With Your Data
RAID recovery Yorkshire can be very different to recovering data from a regular piece of hardware. Generally they are seen as a more reliable computer data storage system, especially if you are using RAID 1 or RAID 5 as they will store your data on multiple drives to protect you from single disk failure. If you have RAID 1, all data will be stored on two drives whereas if you have RAID 5, each file will be split between many physical drives. This is designed purely for redundancy purposes, so that if one disk fails, you can still access your data. In fact, if you are using RAID you may feel so secure that you do not bother to run backups. This would be a mistake. If more than one disk fails, you will lose access to your data so it is vital that you maintain this system as you would any other. When you need Data Recovery Yorkshire or the best Data Recovery Leeds we can help.
One of the most common problems with a RAID setup can simply be wear and tear and overwork. RAID servers are intended to function under a heavy work load, but this cannot go on forever. Wear is increased not only by the amount
of time it is on, but also the number of users accessing it. It is preferable for the servers to be allowed some downtime, but in today’s work environment, when employees are able to access servers from home at any time of the day or night, this is increasingly unrealistic. With the sheer volume of traffic that is repeatedly passing through a server, it is unsurprising that the components are gradually weakened, leading to a sudden and seemingly unprecedented failure. In addition, sometimes we will find that components are faulty, which means that they can take even less of the strain than the fully functioning ones. In this scenario, you will need to contact a professional RAID recovery Yorkshire firm.
The Benefits of Specialist Data Recovery
Most companies that utilise RAID will have an IT department that are able to rebuild the system when necessary. This will usually happen when you experience drive failure and need to replace the existing faulty drives with new ones. If your RAID array does not support ‘hot swapping’ then the server will need to be powered down one drive at a time and then built. It is a delicate and complex process and not always successful, through no fault of the administrators working on it. Sometimes the process will fail after a few percent, although sometimes it will appear to be successful only for the RAID server to refuse to boot up. However, all is not lost. Our RAID recovery Yorkshire firm have specialists who are experts in recovering data from failed RAID reboots, and have a very high success rate.
