Summer heat can become a hard disk killer - warns Attingo data rescue
With the tablet on the beach or with the laptop on the sunny alps - we can only strongly advise against it. An internal investigation of manufacturer specifications revealed that current notebooks and tablets are only designed for a maximum operating temperature of 35 degrees Celsius. The summer heat is a problem for PCs, servers and NAS systems, albeit at a different level. “Only a few sunbeams result can in a high temperature”, warns Nicolas Ehrschwendner, managing director of data rescue specialist Attingo. “Few users are informed that their mobile devices are not suitable for outdoor operation, they are meant to be used in air-conditioned offices.” Even a short period of time in a parking car can become in a fiasco. An infrared measurement test of Attingo – done yesterday around lunchtime on car fittings - resulted in a tremendous heat load of 90 degrees Celsius.

Data recovery NAS systems
The need of a data recovery of NAS (Network Attached Storage) has raised, due to the popularity of NAS systems for small and medium-sized enterprises and by households. NAS systems often contain several hard disks combined in a RAID array, mostly RAID1 (mirroring) or RAID5 and in rare cases, RAID0 (Stripe, no redundancy). Attingo reconstructs the data from all NAS systems, regardless of whether there are faulty hard drives or errors within the file system, even if entire data shares have accidentally been deleted.

Heat and Thunderstorms damage computer hard drives: Attingo reports first loss
Data rescuer provide tips for "E-Health" in the summer - from the Tablet PC to the server, the summer temperatures are reflected not only in the human circulatory system. Also, computer hard drives suffer from the current heat - and the subsequent heat thunderstorms. An iPad at the beach can take damage while stewing in the sun.

Data Recovery: "In case of a data emergency, all security rules are suddenly suspended"
Attingo and DeepSec warn: data recovery partners should be pre-audited. Larger companies have sophisticated security policies and process descriptions from backup to data recovery. But emergency plans in an emergency event often fall by the wayside: namely, when defective disk cannot be restored internally and a data recovery is required.

Virtualization favors data loss - Recovery gehts more complicated
The topic of "Data security in virtualized environments" splits the professionals. On one hand, virtualized systems with multiple servers, virtually united onto hardware are widespread due to space and cost reasons. On the other hand, virtualized systems can be additional sources of error, potentially favoring the loss of data and complicate recovery.

Secure RAID systems: hard disk failures from 2009 to 2010 tripled
The as a supposedly secure counting RAID technology is used in the industry by more than 95 percent of companies with own servers – this starts with SMEs for only a few employees up to corporations. Multiple hard drives are combined to form an array, which increases the performance and enhanced security is achieved. RAID systems are used for data storage, databases, document management and archiving as well as mail and web servers. Even in case of failure of one or two hard drives, the operation of the RAID is still possible on the remaining disks.

data rescue extreme: the most exciting cases
If important data is suddenly lost, it means a state of emergency for the affected. Particularly difficult or sensitive cases lead even professional data recovery companies sometimes to the limits of what is technically feasible. Nevertheless, the experts at Attingo can reconstruct the data in nine out of ten cases. Whether an act of revenge, washed laptops or very old systems: the circumstances of data recovery are sometimes strange, often tricky and as exciting as CSI.

Attingo warns of unprofessional rescue efforts
According to an Attingo market research, the larger damage in data rescue happens during unprofessional efforts. Companies still put their trust in and give their precious data to technicians (or sometimes even amateurs) who have no experience with data rescue technologies. This leads to even more damage and higher costs of the professional effort

On problems and defects in Seagate Barracuda hard disks
"In several internet discussion groups, such as Microsoft Software Forum Network (MSFN), users complain about disfunctioning of hard disks of the Barracuda-7200.11-series (eg. on firmware SD 15 and Site Code KRATSG).

The engineers of Attingo have a solution and they are able to reconstruct the data of the damaged disks for a fixed price. More information as well as a list of the damaged models you will find here."
