  • Buffalo raid recovery is consistently well reviewed and offer great help when data is lost.  But there are certain things where one must be aware of conducting buffalo raid data recovery. Here in this article, you will get an understanding of the types of common BUFFALO Server, NAS and SAN Device Failures and what to do if it happens.
  • Physical Server, NAS and SAN RAID Device Failure
  • Like any other electronic device, physical failure of your Buffalo Server, NAS and SAN can happen. These failures can take place any time leaving you scrambling to recover your data. When a Buffalo Server, SAN controller or NAS fails, it can result in false positive drive failures, a lost RAID configuration, and more. This can include the failure of many components such as power supply, RAM, motherboard or backplane.
  • In such a situation, data recovery becomes far more specialized and complex because nearly all Server, NAS and SAN devices use the less common XFS file system.
  • Logical Failure of SAN Device System, Server, and NAS failure
  • Logical failures happen when the operating systems such as Windows, Mac, Linux, and Novell, UNIX, or VMware system face corruption. This could happen because of any of the reasons such as, improper shutdown, virus attack or due to a power surge or power failure.

Sometimes, the system fails because of improper update where the system fails to boot, boots in a loop, blue screens, etc. At this point, you have no access to your data and you need to perform buffalo raid recovery.

User Error

Your files can still be recovered; whether the data on your server, network attached storage or storage area network device was accidentally deleted and secondly, in the case where the server, NAS or SAN RAID configuration got corrupted or formatted.  Make it a point that if a user error occurs, it is extremely important to stop using your system and turn it off. Everything done by you after the initial problem can help in a successful recovery to a large extent.

What to do when your Server, NAS or SAN RAID fails.

  1. You must not run any chkdsk options like FSCK, or CHKDSK. These functions can corrupt or destroy your file system.
  2. You must not try to rebuild the RAID array. Doing so can wipe out data needed to recover the data you are seeking.
  3. In order to reinitialize the array, you must not remove failed drives at once.
  4. You must not lose the correct order of the drives in the array.
  5. You must not try to repair any damaged drives yourself.
