A common problem that occurs during a data loss is the company or individual experiencing a data loss will panic. As a result, recoverable data stored on hard drives, digital media or usb keys are put at risk.Although many corporations backup their servers, we have seen backups go directly to the wrong server location, or fail to restore from tape.
When performing a RAID Data Recovery or repairing a hard drive failure it is critical to perform a hardware image of the failed hard drive or media. Most corporations and individuals are not equipped to perform this task. Our hardware images never change or write onto the original RAID hard drives or failed storage media undergoing the data recovery.
Unless you have a thorough understanding of how to resolve a data loss situation, we recommend that you do NOT attempt to recover your data.
