Drobo storage devices are becoming very popular, because they offer both consumers and enterprises a robust, scalable storage solution at a budget friendly cost. Their devices are primarily designed to allow installation and removal of different capacity hard disk drives without requiring manual data migration, and also for increasing storage capacity of the unit without downtime.
Drobo Data Recovery
The various models include series of multi-disk devices featuring a wide range of capacities, using anywhere from 4 to 12 disk drives. Drobo devices include both Direct Attached Storage (DAS) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) options. We support these models of Drobo:
|Drobo||Drobo Pro||Drobo FS||Drobo Mini||Drobo Professional||Drobo S||Drobo 5C, 5D, 5Dt, 5D3, 5N2||Drobo B810n, B810i|
Even with all these cutting edge features the Drobo storage device offers, it is not excluded from failure, as with all NAS devices.
Common failures we recover from are:
- Drobo unit failure
- Physical drive failure (clicking drives)
- Logical drive failure
- Firmware failures
- Failed RAID Rebuilds
- Metadata corruption
- Cannot access the device or share
- Drobo units stuck in data protection mode
- User errors such as accidental reconfiguration
A Drobo failure can leave your data inaccessible and cripple your business. A successful recovery usually involves a detailed understanding of Linux file systems, as well as the Drobo’s proprietary nonstandard storage technology called BeyondRAID. Most RAID storage devices use standard algorithms to store the data across all disks in the RAID. Drobo uses it’s very own proprietary BeyondRAID storage technology, which offers its own set of unique challenges during the recovery process. We are one of the only companies that can offer this level of recovery due to the sheer complexity of BeyondRAID.
Our Team of Data Recovery Experts are here to assist you with both simple and complex failures of your Drobo device. Our Engineers have years of experience and have been specifically trained to perform recoveries from Drobo NAS & DAS devices. Don’t trust just anyone to recover data from your Drobo device, trust Data Analyzers.
