Server Recovery Tips

Here are some tips from our expert engineers for successful server data recovery:

  • If a drive is making unusual noises, turn it off immediately and seek professional help
  • Restore the data to a separate server or location, never the server that lost the data in the first place
  • If the data has been accidentally or maliciously deleted, turn the device off immediately, without shutting down
  • If you’re planning on making hardware or software changes, also make sure you have a valid backup in place first
  • Label all drives with their position in a RAID array
  • Never run repair or defragmenter utilities on a suspected bad drive

If your server has failed or you’ve lost server data, we’d always advise seeking support from a server data recovery expert.
