RAID Data Recovery for Enterprise Storage Systems

A comprehensive analysis of the damaged media, combined with state-of-the-art tools and techniques, yields the highest quality results possible.

  • How are we different than other recovery companies?
  • Free Evaluation – RAID systems up to 10 drives
  • Fast Service – Same day evaluations available
  • Secure Remote RAID Recovery Service available
  • Competitive Rates – RAID recoveries start at $2000

Please contact us for advice to help ensure your RAID does not get further damaged by additional recovery attempts.

You may be tempted to try and fix it yourself. Many actions that may seem logical as a possible fix can cause irreparable damage. One wrong keypress in the controller BIOS, or one incorrect disk swap/rebuild operation can mean the difference between a 100% recovery and a 0% recovery.

**If you’re unsure and need a professional opinion, call us now and a RAID Recovery Specialist will help you to determine the path to the best possible recovery result. Advice is free. RAID Recovery Engineers are standing by.

Database Data Recovery & Repair

We realize how vital your corporate databases are and we’ve developed processes and techniques to recover the data and/or repair corrupted tables safely.

Common causes of Databases data loss:

  • Backup files not recognizable by database engine.
  • Database locked as ‘suspect’ preventing access.
  • Deleted or dropped tables.
  • Accidentally deleted records.
  • Corrupted database files and devices.
  • Damaged individual data pages.
  • Accidentally overwritten database files & storage devices.

Supported databases include:

  • Access
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • MS Exchange
  • Sybase
  • Oracle
  • MySQL

Once we’re done analyzing the database and records contained, data will then be extracted in order to rebuild database. After completely rebuilding the database we then check for structure integrity of each file to assure that your system will be back up and running as expected. We regularly recover database backups and all their objects: including views, triggers and stored procedures.
