RAID 6 Recovery
We recover your data professionally and are very experienced in restoring RAID 6 arrays.

RAID 6 Recovery

Profound knowledge is a absolute precondition for RAID 6 recovery, because RAID 6 defines the use of a double parity and redundancy and not - as frequently assumed - the algorithms for calculating. The algorithms used by the different RAID 6 controllers differ from model to model.

Attingo is specialzed in recovering data from unusual storage systems. In over 98 percent of cases our enigineers are able to restore the data from a RAID 6 system.

Causes for data loss from RAID 6 arrays

Three or more hard drives break down at the same time

If three or more hard drives break down, the RAID 6 is offline. This may happen after physical damage like concussions or blackouts, overvoltage, overheating or air pressure changes. A reboot of the RAID 6 server can lead to the hard drives blinking and the access being no longer possible.

Hard drives break down over a longer time period

It often happens that hard drives break down one after the other over a longer time period. This often goes unnoticed, if the RAID 6 doesn't report an error.

RAID 6 rebuild cancelled

One of the most frequent causes for data loss from RAID 6 systems is a cancelled rebuild. All of the sectors are being accessed at the same time, so a simple reading error can cause a hard drive being kicked out of the network. The more hard drives and the older they are, the higher the possibilty of the rebuild being cancelled.

Defective RAID 6 controller

A defective RAID 6 controller leads to a break down of the array. Possible reasons are bugs, firmware bugs or defective software.

What to do when a RAID 6 falls out?

A RAID 6 breakdown often means standstill for a whole department or - even worse - the whole company. High pressure situations like that may come with hasty actions and irrational decisions. Therefore it is crucial to keep calm to prevent consequential damage.

Trust our specialists - we know the solution

We are confronted with RAID 6 recoveries on a daily basis. Our technicians and engineers are experienced in restoring RAID 6 systems and know exactly which steps and measures must be taken.

Contact us if you need an emergency data resuce and save precious time! Our staff is there for you all around the clock. To avoid confusion, please mark the defective hard drives and label the hard drives with their position (slot).

Never change three or more hard drives at the same time

If three or more hard drives from the same RAID 6 network are changed at the same time, it can lead to corruptive data after the rebuild.

Forcing the RAID 6 online is very risky

If you want to force a RAID 6 online, you should keep in mind that this is very risky! It may lead to a total breakdown with complete data loss. The correct order of the hard drives in the RAID 6 array plays a crucial role, because it often differs from the SLOT numeration. It could also be the case, that hard drives have broken down before and are now reintegrated into the RAID 6, so old data gets mixed up with new data. This can lead to corruptive data and severe logical damage, especially in databases.

Professional RAID 6 recovery with Attingo

Attingo is rescueing your data already during the diagnosis

After the diagnosis is finished you receive a fixed price offer and a list of saved data. We'll be happy to advise you on our different diagnosis options.

Your RAID 5 does not leave the country

Defective hard drives will neither be sent abroad nor to third-party providers. The data rescue will be solely performed in our in-house clean rooms. Attingo has over 14.500 spare parts from all manufacturers. That's the basis for a successful data rescue.

Profound technical knowledge

Fine mechanics and knowledge about internal system structures (e.g. firmware), algorithms and performance of RAID controllers are necessary for a successful RAID recovery. Our specialists have reverse engineered RAID controllers from the following manufacturers: Adaptec Controller, 3Ware, ICP Vortex, Intel, Areca, ATTO, Dawicontrol, HighPoint, LSI, QLogic.

Leistung ist super, Preise sind halt in der Datenrettungbranche extrem hoch.

Waren mit Service sehr zufrieden
2012-03-28: , Seagate Barracuda ES.2 ST3500320NS aus Thecus N7700 | Linux | NTFS

hab von Branchenkollegen auch nur Gutes über euch gehört

Alles wunderbar funktioniert
2011-03-02: , Seagate Barracuda ES.2 aus Open-E NAS RAID | RAID6 | Linux | Unix

Hätte es natürlich gern günstiger gehabt, aber Sie waren immerhin halb so teuer wie K****.
