Data Recovery: QNAP NAS with Western Digital HDDs

Qnap Data Recovery

In digital storage, unexpected data loss can throw us into a frenzy. Today, we share a compelling case where a client sought our expertise to recover his QNAP NAS, housing two Western Digital 3.5" 6TB hard disk drives. Unable to access the NAS despite the physical spinning of HDDs, the client's attempts at self-recovery using an online diagnosis platform proved futile. Suspecting a potential mainboard issue and with a RAID 1 configuration in place, the NAS presented a unique challenge that our recovery team was determined to overcome.

Diagnosing the Challenge

Our dedicated recovery team embarked on a meticulous diagnosis of the QNAP NAS and identified a hardware issue. While the NAS powered up, it did not function normally and remained undetectable. Both Western Digital HDDs had malfunctioned due to burning, possibly caused by a power surge, overvoltage, or overcurrent. The situation's complexity required a careful approach to ensure successful data recovery.

Triumph in Recovery

Undeterred by the challenging circumstances, our experienced engineer successfully recovered almost all data from the faulty HDDs. A thorough online data verification session followed, confirming the accuracy and completeness of the recovered files. The client expressed satisfaction and relief with the outcome, prompting the next crucial step. The result shows that it is related to mechanical failure, and recovery is required in the recovery lab.

Safeguarding Recovered Data

Recognising the importance of securing the recovered data, we transferred it to a hard drive provided by the client for immediate backup. This additional step not only offered peace of mind to our client but also served as a crucial safeguard against potential future data mishaps.

Expert Suggestions

We advise against attempting DIY solutions found online, especially when the drive has mechanical issues. Incorrect handling might exacerbate the situation, making recovery more challenging. If data loss is suspected, cease using the device immediately to prevent the overwriting of deleted or lost files. For those needing professional data recovery services, we extend our expertise and encourage contacting us.


In the intricate landscape of digital storage, unexpected challenges may arise. Still, successful data recovery is achievable with the right expertise and professional guidance. Your digital data is valuable, and we are here to navigate the complexities and guide you through any data recovery journey you may encounter.
