12 TB RAID 6 Successful Data Recovery with 3 Hard Drives Failure

The recent success of data recovery from RAID 6 Server, SAS type hard drive of 1 TB each, the total server capacity of 12 TB with 3 hard drive failures. Recovery went successful without losing a single bit of information.

The client had power fluctuation for about 2 days of time and the server restarted 3 times during boot. Three drives went offline and the entire server was offline. IBM engineers have replaced the faulty hard drives with the new ones and tried to run the server but due to the failure of more than 2 hard drives, the RAID 6 cannot be completed or rebuilt with new hard drives. Our engineers visited the place for onsite analysis and later found that the drives have issues in detection and the motor rotation does not initialize.

Our engineers have acquired the hard drives and recovery process continued in our lab. The drives had firmware and the circuit board related issues wherein the firmware is the software code which controls the drive working condition, the capacity of each faulty drives has been converted into Zero MB capacity.  After successfully imaging the 3 faulty drives and rebuilding in our servers, we have completed the recovery without loss of any data. The recovery was successful 100%. The client was happy to see the entire server online without installing his operating system on the same.

Burnt Seagate Hard Drive Data Recovery



Recently our client had an incident with fire damage in their location which was occurred due to an electrical short circuit, entire CPU was melted down and the hard drive was completely damaged. As the hard drive arrived our engineers have taken the circuit board out of the drive and cleaned it well and replaced with new one after taking readings from old PCB circuit board. Seagate hard drive requires original PCB board readings, which is important to recover data from the magnetic platters. We have completed two level of cleaning by removing the residues on the upper surface and the head and PCB board contacts. We have to blindly work on the hard drive since no upper sticker information is available which is charred in black, we have worked with the drive by taking information from PCB board parameters, which got us Model, Part No, Firmware version, Site code and other information which is

The model of the hard drive and the serial no. with other parameters and readings are taken from the drive via firmware access. The data recovery started in our lab working with the hard drive internal components. After 20 working days and several attempts for data extraction, the recovery went successfully with the extraction of about 70% of useful information from the drive. The required tally database and the user information which was necessary was prioritized and completed. The user was happy since other hardware can be claimed for insurance but not the data which was available on the fire-damaged drive.

Most of the Fire damage on the drive yield physical component failure, data extraction is difficult due to the involvement of finding a model of the donor drives and cleaning dust particles and foreign particles accumulated due to burnt plastic and rubber materials, majorly data extraction requires several levels of work on the drive.
