In case if more than one HDD is not working properly that can be a disaster for the company and could also affect others as well.

Securing data in case of RAID arrays is a key priority for us.

In case of a RAID failure please do not panic!

Turn off the provider and shut down the system!

  • Please do not restart the system in case of uncertain operation because it can cause   further damages
  • Please turn off the system if you notice any kind of strange noise
  • Please label the position of the drives in the RAID array
  • Numbering of the system should start with a 0 ( ie. If an array consists of 5 drives the numering will be 0-4 )
  • Please do not run any correction or defragmentation software on the damaged drives!
  • Please do not replace any drives in the system!
  • Please do not repare!

Important! If you notice any failure in the RAID array or server please turn off the system immediately and disconnect power. Further damages can be avoided. There are several free recovery softwares available. Using them without any experience could lead to more severe irrevesible failures on the defected disk.
