3-Hour RAID / NAS Recovery

3-Hour RAID / NAS Recovery

Some have asked how a failed RAID array can be recovered in such a short 3-Hour time window. Briefly stated here are some of the factors that make such a quick recovery possible.

Knowledge — Hundreds of successful RAID recoveries performed remotely since 2011. It’s likely I’ve already worked on a case very similar to yours.

Experience — Over 30 years of experience as an IT Pro managing Windows and Linux servers in a corporate data center.

Automation — Custom software built to assist in the data recovery process automates much of the recovery work.

Remote Operation — No need to pack and ship your drives. I connect to you via the Internet so recovery work can begin very quickly.

Add it all together and a 3-Hour recovery is very much possible. Of course some cases present complexities which require more time to resolve. But in general 70% of the RAID cases I see are 3-Hour achievable.

Data Recovery, Worldwide

Data Recovery, Worldwide

In operation since 2011 many clients have had their data recovered through my service. Most clients reside in the United States but I’ve had many clients from around the world as well. Performing data recovery, securely, over the Internet as I do provides an outstanding client value. And it does not matter if the client is down the street from my Boston office or half-way around the world I am able to provide the same level of high quality service to all clients.

And as far as I know no one, not even the big expensive data recovery companies, offers a similar type of on-line data recovery service. That is to say no one else has developed a data recovery CD that uses free technologies and a built in secure remote connectivity feature to make it possible to recover data from problematic hard drives and failed RAID / NAS arrays, remotely, anywhere in the world.

And certainly no one else sets their fees on a donation basis!

So if you are in need of a fast, affordable, high quality data recovery service that specializes in the remote recovery of desktop, laptop, and external USB drives plus NAS / RAID devices such as the WD ShareSpace, Buffalo Terastation, Seagate BlackArmor, Dell PowerEdge (PERC), HP Proliant (Smart Array), Netgear ReadyNAS, Lacie, Iomega, Synology, Thecus etc. then I invite you to contact me to discuss your case.

On-Line RAID / NAS Recovery

On-Line RAID / NAS Recovery

If your NAS storage server or other RAID data storage device has crashed and you are seeking data recovery services then you’ve come to the right place.

My name is Stephen Haran and I specialize in on-line NAS / RAID data recovery. Western Digital ShareSpace NAS boxes seem to be the most common recovery I perform these days and is the major reason clients from around the world find my site when searching for ShareSpace data recovery.  But I also recover data from Buffalo Terastation, Seagate BlackArmor, Netgear Readynas, Lacie, Iomega, Synology, Thecus etc, basically any NAS or RAID device is a good candidate for on-line data recovery.

So if you need help I invite you to contact me by phone, email, or on-line chat to discuss your case and if it’s an urgent matter we can begin working to recover your data right away. And because I operate remotely there is no need to pack and ship out your NAS hard drives, so it’s possible to recover your data quickly sometimes in less than one day.

The ShareSpace, to give an example, is a four drive NAS box provisioned with either 2TB, 4TB, or 8TB of storage space. And internally a RAID5 DataVolume is created to hold user data. This configuration is typical of other vendors as well.  And these NAS devices all work well until one day they don’t.  With the ShareSpace typically you see the dreaded, “Volume ‘DataVolume’ doesn’t exist” error. Although there are other failure scenarios and error messages depending on the vendor.

Fortunately recovery is often possible in these cases. If you browse through my client comments page you will see that I have successfully performed remote data recovery operations on NAS boxes for clients located throughout the world.

When you consider the high cost of any RAID or NAS recovery the remote recovery service I offer represents a significant value to my clients. Ask for a price quote from another data recovery service provider and you will see what I mean. Plus since all work is performed remotely over a secure Internet connection my service is much much faster.

So if your ShareSpace or any other RAID or NAS storage device has crashed or is otherwise inoperable I’m here to help and I invite you to contact me by phone: 617 506 9392, email: Stephen@FreeDataRecovery.us, or on-line chat.
