Writing makes it all better, believe me.

rprIn order to recover a Poweredge RAID, you have to ensure that you do it the right way. A lot of individuals who lost their files because of a RAID breakdown attempt to fix it according to their rather limited knowledge and computer skills. However, if they fall short and unsuccessfully recover the RAID, it’s often because they don’t even have a parts diagram. They end up wasting their time and money because they have recover a now severely damaged parity disk. So if you encounter a RAID breakdown, the best thing to do is sit there. Be calm. Find a credible RAID recovery specialist.

Most of these technicians know how to recover Poweredge RAID often by running through a bank of their proprietary tests. But not everyone is absolutely skilled when it comes to recovering this kind of server. It’s always good to check with the Dell website to see if there is a licensed RAID repair company in your area.

Do not forget also to make comparisons of the companies, and don’t be afraid to ship your server. If you are able to get the right company to fix your server, you save mainly because you do not have to buy another set of disks because the RAID array is functional again and your files are retrieved.

Ways To Poweredge Perc Controller Recovery

The Poweredge Perc controller has many functions. If this is damaged due to some factors like shock or water or fire damage, you have to make an effort to find a company that can provide Poweredge Perc Controller recovery and repair like Hard Drive Recovery Group. Basically, these guys are masters with Dell PowerEdge based RAID 5 and 10 disk arrays. These skilled individuals are familiar with the recovery process already and have represented Dell in the trenches for about 20 years now. If you were to ask these guys about some of the war stories they’ve gone through battling to recover data from huge corporate servers, they would keep you entertained all week.

Believe us… when we had one of our Linux web servers crash recently, we just picked up the telephone, talked to Lou and shipped the drive array out to Irvine, CA (where these guys do their clean room stuff). They ended up waiving the 24 hour fee and had us back online with full system functionality in less than two days door to door.

It’s a good thing to have a company like this on your speed dial. It’ll save you, believe me.

    Thanks for posting this. We have a Dell Poweredge 2800, and it’s been seriously on the fritz for a couple of weeks now. This article at least helps us narrow down the search for a good provider.

    I’m making the call now!

    Cool story here. It’s funny how little information there is online about PowerEdge servers. Seriously… it’s just the Dell site (which is awful), and some forum stuff. You’d think Google would be better at finding this niche information.

    Seriously, Reg! You’d think with all those big brains you’d be able to find good info out there. And yet, I had to go like 10 pages in before I found this.
