SAN Data Recovery

Storage Area Network, or SAN, devices provide businesses with a massive amount of secure data storage. The popularity of SAN devices has grown as their cost decreases and they become easier to use. However, any device can fail, putting your data at risk. With the amount of storage SAN devices contain and the relatively complex nature of some networks, it can be challenging to handle problems with your SAN devices.

Common Symptoms of Failing SAN Devices

Your SAN device may hold a massive amount of data spread out over several drives, which can make it difficult to notice the signs of a failing SAN device. However, recognizing the early signs of a failing device is the best way to prevent permanent data loss. The sooner you take action, the better chance you have of fully recovering any lost data.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, contact an expert at Drive Data Recovery today.

  • Inaccessible or missing data
  • Drive not recognized by device
  • Errors connecting to your SAN device
  • Slow device performance
  • Slow drive data read/write speed
  • Overheating device
  • Repeated freezing, crashing, or errors
  • Blue or black screen
  • Clicking sounds from hard drive

Causes of SAN Data Loss & Failure

Identifying the cause of your data loss is the first step our experts take during the free diagnosis of your SAN device. Once we have identified the cause, we can select the best method to recover your data. You will receive a diagnostic report that details the cause and provides an up-front quote on the cost to recover your data and the time required for the recovery process.

While data loss can occur because of a range of issues or accidents, the three fundamental types of damage that cause SAN data loss are logical drive failure, electrical drive failure, and mechanical drive failure.

Logical drive failure, or corruptions to your storage data, can happen to a SAN device if it is mishandled during use. Powering off the device or disconnecting storage improperly while the storage drive is busy can cause damage that makes your data invisible or inaccessible.

Electrical drive failure caused by an electrical surge can put your entire library of SAN storage data at risk. Faulty plugs, hardware, and cables, or power outages and lightning strikes, can all result in electrical drive failure.

Mechanical drive failure, or physical damage to your drive, is a common form of data loss in many hard disks. Drops, spills, and disk degradation due to age can harm any storage media your SAN device manages.

What to Do if Your SAN Device Fails

If your device breaks or you realize your data is missing, Drive Data Recovery is here to help. If you cannot access data on your SAN device, follow these steps immediately to improve your chances of fully recovering your data:

  1. Safely turn off your SAN device by holding down the power button.
  2. Remove all cables connected to your device.
  3. Do not attempt to restore device power or use free data recovery software found on the web. This software often causes greater damage to the device and can make recovery impossible.
  4. Contact a specialist at Drive Data Recovery to start your free consultation.
