Server Recovery: A Case Study

Server Recovery

In today's digital landscape, servers are vital in storing and managing critical business data. However, server failures can occur, leading to potential data loss and disruption. In this case study, we will explore a scenario where a company approached us for server recovery services to retrieve data from their Dell PowerEdge T420 server, which experienced issues with specific hard disk drives (HDDs).

Initial Cause of Data Loss

The company contacted us as their Dell PowerEdge T420 server, consisting of five HDDs, encountered accessibility issues. Despite the server being operational, the files are unreadable. The IT team attempted to resolve the problem by restarting the server. It only received prompts indicating issues with Drive 4 and Drive 5, with light indicators blinking in yellow. The company informed us that Drive 1 and Drive 2 were configured as RAID 1, while Drive 3, Drive 4, and Drive 5 are in RAID 5 configuration. The server had two available partitions.

Server Recovery Process

Our skilled data recovery specialist assessed the Dell PowerEdge T420 server and identified that drives 1 and 2 function properly within the RAID 1 configuration. However, Drive 3 was working, while Drive 4 and Drive 5 were faulty, contributing to data inaccessibility.

Server Recovery Outcome

Through our comprehensive server recovery procedures, our specialist successfully retrieved data from all the hard disks in the Dell PowerEdge T420 server. The EHDR recovery team securely transfers all recovered data to a backup external hard disk, which the user provided. The company was relieved to have its valuable data restored.
