1. Must Relax and Keep Calm:
Although the failure of a server hard drive and the possible loss of data can be distressing, it is important for you to stay focused on the work at hand. Work at a reasonable pace. Don’t allow yourself to rush. If you rush, you may make a mistake
2. Do not run file system checkers (chkdsk, or fsck, or xfsck)
Running these utilities will not save data. These system checks are not designed to save data. Their only function is to align a file system so that it can be mounted. In fact, you may damage your system still further if you run any of these programs.
3. Shut down the RAID server
When you are dealing with a hard drive failure and attempting to recover data, you must ensure that all drives are shut down. None of the drives on the computer system should be getting power.
4. Check the RAID server backups
Don’t make the mistake of reconfiguring the array too soon. Many IT techs make the mistake of bringing a damaged drive back online too soon. Instead, you should start by checking the backup and the data.
Taking these steps will help ensure that the data is up to date. It will also allow you to start your migration process right away if it turns out that you cannot get the RAID to come back online.
5. Call Certified and Qualified Recovery Support
Once you have step 1 and step 2 taken care of, then (and only then) you can contact recovery support.
If you want to recover your data, make sure you don’t let anyone into your server until you have completed step 1 and 2.
It’s a fact of life that most RAID technicians have no idea about data recovery. They are following instructions from a monitor. They are dealing with your hardware issue by rote. They don’t necessarily know how to target specific problems. It’s rare for them to know anything about data recovery.
Before you call a technician, keep in mind that their primary goal is to get you back online, not recover your data.
