The majority of NAS units  are connected to a host network through a standard network cable and are configured using a web or other interface. NAS units are used with Windows or Mac OS systems and beneath the user available interface is a Linux, Netgear (ZFS)   SNAP, Guardian OS, or proprietary based Admin operating system that manages the network file sharing and other services required by the NAS unit. A multi disk NAS unit generally uses a regular RAID configuration in its operation and this is normally established during set-up by the user or his agent. RAID 0 RAID 1 or RAID 5 are the usual configuration candidates,  contingent on performance , security and  fault tolerance that meet the users operational imperatives.

Failed NAS Hard Drives.

NAS systems generally contain multiple hard drives in a mirror or stripe configuration. In an adequately provisioned system you can generally deal with a faulty hard disk drive by swaping-out the faulty drive then allowing the system to rebuild, after all this is what they are designed to do. Please be aware however that . “If the controller does not recognize new disks it will initialize and you may lose your data”.

Failed NAS File System Rebuild

Datlabs Data Recovery  can rebuild any level of NAS configured RAID such as RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 4, RAID 5, RAID 6 and the hybrid levels of Raid 10, RAID 50, , RAID 51, etc and from any proprietary NAS configured RAID such as Drobo and Netgear XRaid, ZFS, etc.

Recovering data from a faulty or inaccessible NAS unit  requires a detailed knowledge of the file system structures and its hardware configuration.

The de-facto OS for the majority of  NAS units is Linux with file systems such as EXT3, EXT4, BTRFS, and XFS.  Many  NAS systems however use a modified version of Linux.

RAID levels vary from between manufacturers, some use proprietary RAID based systems such as Infrant’s X-RAID (Infrant are now owned by Netgear).

NAS Data Recovery.

If you have a non responsive NAS unit, are not IT savvi and you need access to your stored data then please don’t gamble with potentially risky maintenance actions as these can lead to complex situations and the potential loss of your important data.

Call Datlabs help line for expert assistance in restoring access to your data.

Data recovery services from Drobo  NAS units.

The Drobo file system “Beyond Raid ” is a proprietary system that  differs from other file and RAID systems.  System meta data describes the manner in which the user data is stored  and examining and re-stating the meta data  often allows inaccessible data to be recovered. There are no freely available software recovery tools that will facilitate the recovery of data from a a corrupt Drobo unit. The drobo system data structures have to be manually rebuilt and re-instated.

Data recovery services from  QNAP  NAS units.

A QNAP NAS system is a good data storage solution for both home and business. Like all digital storage solutions however they can develop faults that will frustratingly prevent access to your data. Datlabs Data Recovery Services  can however invariably  repair your QNAP System and  recover your files and folders to an alternative storage unit ready for restore.
