Over the past few months, we have been seeing more QNAP servers coming in for data recovery. The issues we have recovered range from multiple drive failure to accidental deletion of the RAID arrays.
A few common mistakes made that complicate the recovery efforts by the team a Recovery Force include swapping drives out and forcing arrays back online. Not only will this make the recovery process more complicated, it can seriously impact the chances of recovering all the data.
QNAP servers can be used as basic NAS units, simply sharing files across a network or setup to be iSCSI storage spaces containing virtual machines. Because of this, the complexity of the recovery can vary, as does the time and cost to recover the data.
If you are in the unfortunate situation where you can no longer access data stored on your QNAP server, contact the team at Recovery Force to seek advice on how to avoid making things worse and to discuss the best course of action to take in order to improve the chances of recovery.
