What to do if your RAID Configured  Server has crashed.

RAID Configured Systems fail due to a loss of power, failing hard drive/s environmental failure and a variety of other reasons .  Whatever the reason for your RAID failure, it is important to know how to respond in a data loss crisis.

  • Don’t panic
    The first rule of any data loss situation is not to panic. Panicking leads to poor decision-making and knee-jerk responses. The fact is that it is possible to fully or at least partly reconstruct the data in the majority of data loss situations as long as the correct approach is adopted.
  • Don’t allow any disk checking software to run on the array, (e.g. Scandisk / Chkdsk etc)
    These utilities deal with file system errors. However, some underlying hard drive problems can create file system errors as symptoms. The operating system will automatically run a utility to fix the file system errors and, in doing so, can damage or fragment previously retrievable data.
    Earlier Windows operating systems offered users the choice whether to initiate these utilities, but more recent versions will run them automatically if the computer is shut down incorrectly. You can abort the utility by watching the boot process and pressing ESC to cancel it within ten seconds. The important files should then be copied to another type of media.
  • Don’t change the disk order
    It is extremely important not to change the disk order in the array. If the order has been changed, a professional data recovery company should be contacted. It should not be necessary to remove a disk from an array, but if a disk or disks have been removed, it is crucial that they are replaced in the same order.
  • Don’t continue to run the system
    The RAID BIOS may report that one or more of the constituent hard drives are faulty. This may be because of a physical problem with the hard drive or a configuration problem.
  • Don’t reconfigure the array
    If there is a problem with the configuration, it’s crucial that the RAID is re-configured correctly. Incorrectly configuring the RAID will often make the data unrecoverable.
  • Do not attempt to rebuild the RAID
    Under no circumstances attempt to rebuild the RAID. This could result in wide-scale data loss.

If you have any of the above problems and are unsure how to proceed, it is vital you  contact our  data CRASH team for  knowledgeable and professional support.
