Why choose us for your RAID Data Recovery?
RAID data recovery is one of the specialised data recovery services offered by Data Retrieval. Over the year, we have built our reputation as one of the leading data recovery companies based and working in Central London. Our team has advanced knowledge and experience in complex data recoveries, including system formats, drive corruption and recovery from the array
RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) configuration systems have the reputation to be safer than all the other digital data storage systems. While this is generally true, because the configuration is designed on multiple physical drives, whether standard hard drives or SSD, they are instances when one or more drives fail. When this happens, the system no longer works as it should and the redundancy process may be disrupted. In these instances, Data Retrieval can intervene and will rebuild your system as if nothing ever happened. Our RAID data services are carried either in our data recovery centre in central London, remotely or on site.
The advantages of using us include:
- Free evaluation
- No obligation quote
- High success rates for all RAID configurations
- Fast service reducing business downtime
- A specialised RAID data recovery lab with a certified clean room
- A friendly customer service that is available to discuss your RAID requirements immediately
- Highly secured premises and secured systems
- Highly confidential process – your data is in safe hands with us
Why does a RAID fail?
The most common RAID failures include a failure of the RAID controller, a missing RAID partition, failed rebuild of RAID volume, multiple disk failure or crash of the server. When this happens, time is of the essence. We look after all the RAID hardware failures, RAID software issues, human errors and application failures. Taking the right steps is essential to prevent further damage and ensure a successful recovery. Data Retrieval has the right tools and facilities to ensure this difficult situation is corrected without delay. Our technicians have over 15 years’s experience in this field of work and can deal with any RAID configuration including the most common ones RAID 0 (striped disk array without fault tolerance), RAID 1 (disk mirroring), RAID 4 (dedicated parity drive), RAID 5 (the most popular RAID configuration with block interleaved distributed parity), RAID 6 (independent data disks with double parity), RAID Level 0+1 (a mirror of stripes), RAID Level 10 (a stripe of mirrors) and RAID 50 (distributed parity with striping).

Types of RAID Data Recovery Services offered by an industry leader like us
Data Retrieval provides unparalleled RAID data recovery services for all RAID devices and configurations.
In-house RAID Data Recovery
Data Retrieval is one of the leading data recovery centres in London. We are equipped with all the facilities and tools needed to carry out successful in-house RAID recoveries. Our technicians have years of experience in RAID configuration and server maintenance. They will assist you to restore your data as soon as they have diagnosed the fault and identify which of the disks on the system is causing the loss of data. They will then be able to discuss the most adapted recovery solutions and their costs.
Remote RAID Recovery
In some case of RAID failures, the recovery of the data can be done remotely. This is a particularly popular service in cases of emergency logical RAID recoveries when the data is highly confidential and has to stay on-site. All the procedures are done using highly secure remote RAID recovery tools and help save time. The other advantage is that they can be done anywhere, whether you’re based in London or elsewhere.
On-site RAID Recovery
Data Retrieval can dispatch an experienced field technician on your site if the RAID recovery needs to be done on a large storage server when too many disks are used and it would be too complicated to dismantle the entire system. The technician will troubleshoot the RAID problem and carry out an on-site diagnostic. If possible, he will repair the RAID on the spot, but in some cases, it may be necessary to take away the faulty drive to be recovered in our data recovery lab.
Server Data Recovery
Losing large amount of data saved stored on a server can have catastrophic consequences. Data Retrieval priorities business server recoveries where the company’s data is extremely sensitive. We always endeavour to recover the maximum amount of data possible. Out of hours server recovery is available in cases of real emergency, with the fastest turn around in London. We recover data from all brands and types of servers, no matter the problem including inaccessible drives, drives making clicking noises, drives not booting, corrupted partition table, drives that have been formatted, failed operating system, RAID rebuild failure or RAID damaged by floods or fires.
NAS (Network Attached Storage) storage technology is becoming increasingly more popular. By offering a more effective way to store and share data through the wireless network, NAS makes it easier to manage your data in one centralised location with speed and convenience while ensuring regular back ups are carried out. In case of problem with the performance of your NAS, Data Retrieval will be able to isolate the cause of the issue. In some cases, you may be unable to access your data, in other cases, the retrieval of data and applications is very slow. You may also be receiving error messages. The hardware may have failed or be about to fail. By providing hands on assistance on all NAS types and brands, you can trust Data Retrieval to help you, whatever the issue.
RAID Data Recovery
When one of the drive of your RAID starts making noises, if the RAID is crashing or doesn’t boot up, if it displays error messages, if some of the files have disappeared, have been formatted or have been deleted or if the RAID has been subjected to a power surge, a fire or a liquid damage, you can trust Data Retrieval to assist you quickly and efficiently.

VMware VMFS (Virtual Machine File System) Recovery
Virtual Machines are software implementations of computer systems either through a hardware or a software or a combination of both. It offers computer virtualization service which has helped to make efforts in the computing world. The use of virtual machines has become more popular these days. Virtualization offers a number of advantages in disaster recovery, but still it is exposed to data loss caused by various internal and external factors. The most common reasons why virtual machines lose data are
- Unexpected deletion of virtual disk files
- Corrupted virtual disk files
- Corrupted file systems
- RAID and Hardware failures
