We recover from physical and logical damage due to mechanical and electrical failure, software corruption or human error.
Any type of server role (e.g. file, application, database, email server)
Any type of storage array (e.g. Single Hard Drive, RAID, SAN, NAS )
Any type of file system (e.g. FAT, NTFS, EXT, HFS, Linux / Unix file system)
Each recovery case begins with a free diagnostic to determine the potential for recovery and to provide a firm price-quote for your review.
Recovery of crashed hard disks often involves replacing failed or damaged components in a clean environment (Clean room class 100) and using specialized hardware and software tools to create the raw image.
Failed components typically include electronics, read/write heads, head assemblies, magnets and drive motors.
Logical recovery uses the raw image by examining the low-level data sectors and determining what fixes to file system structures are needed to get access to the important data. Sometimes the existing file system structures are missing or damaged so much that data has to be extracted directly from one or more fragments of the raw image.
Once a recovery has been successfully performed, file lists are created and data validity and integrity is checked.
