Unlocking Data from a Failed Drobo Array: How Fields Data Recovery Can Help

Unlocking Data from a Failed Drobo Array: How Fields Data Recovery Can Help

When it comes to safeguarding your data, choosing the right storage solution is paramount. Drobo, a well-known manufacturer of external storage media devices, offers unique configurations that set them apart from the rest. Unlike most RAID units which employ common configurations like RAID0 or RAID5, Drobo utilises a proprietary setup known as "BeyondRAID". This innovative approach writes data across multiple locations on all drives, promising enhanced protection and flexibility.

However, even with advanced technology, no system is immune to failure. When a drive in a Drobo array fails, any piece of data stored on the array can become inaccessible, causing significant disruptions and potential data loss. At Fields Data Recovery, we specialise in recovering data from complex storage systems like Drobo’s BeyondRAID. Here’s how we can assist you in navigating a drive failure and recovering your valuable data.

Free Diagnostic Assessment for Drobo Units

Understanding the complexity of Drobo's BeyondRAID, our experienced technicians begin with a thorough diagnostic evaluation of your unit. During this free diagnostic process, we meticulously:

  1. Identify the Failed Drive: The first step is to pinpoint which drive within the array has failed. This is crucial in mapping out the recovery process.
  2. Locate and Reconstruct Data: Next, our technicians work to find the exact locations of all your data. Using sophisticated tools and techniques, we recreate the necessary file-lists to ensure no piece of data is overlooked.
  3. Develop a Recovery Strategy: Finally, we determine the most effective means of extracting and backing up your data. This step is tailored to the specific circumstances of your Drobo array, ensuring a high likelihood of successful data recovery.

Understanding Recovery Possibilities and Costs

Each data recovery scenario is unique, especially with Drobo’s BeyondRAID configurations. Therefore, determining the likelihood of complete data recovery and the associated costs can only be accurately assessed after a detailed diagnosis.
