What to do when your SAN fails

Reasons for SAN failures, and how to deal with them


Verify if there are any SAN configuration changes. If necessary, reverse those changes. The most common reasons for SAN failure are Single or Multiple Disk Failure, Ransomware Attacks, or Human Errors.


Check if the cables are connected and if all power switches are turned on and if they are sending the drives failures reports.


A data recovery expert can further explore the situation to determine if we have to do remote, on-site, or in-lab recovery, depending on the scenario. A quick call with us may prevent very expensive and lengthy downtime.

SAN or Storage Area Network is a computer network that provides block-level data storage.

SANs are used to access other data storage devices, such as disk arrays and tape libraries, making them appear as direct-attached storage in the system.

  • You need a recovery service when your SAN has:
  • Single or Multiple Disk Failure
  • Failed Software
  • Failed Operating System Upgrades
  • Mechanical Failure
  • Virus or Ransomware Attack
  • System Crash
  • Accidental Deletion of Data
  • Physical Damage (Fire, Water, Smoke, Etc.)
  • Logical Corruption
  • Security System Failure
  • Human Error

Many factors can affect the SAN data recovery process, especially your SAN configuration. 

If your SAN has a dedicated file system, it may require specialized tools, in order to restore damaged data to a working condition. The amount of the SAN and its RAID level (if applicable) also affect the recovery process. Another point that is considered during the recovery process is the number of hard drives in the system, as well as the extent of mechanical damage. 

Our expert team has the experience and the proper tools for any SAN brand recovery and can recover from all the damage your SAN may have.

Depending on the amount of information recovered from your SAN storage, we can either transfer it onto brand new external media or send it via download. Data download limitations are 50 GB for economy service, 100 GB for expedited, and 500 GB for an emergency.

Adhering to best privacy practices, we rely on SSAE 16 SOC3 TYPE III certification along with a strict chain-of-command protocol. This guarantees your data security and safety, to which we pay great attention.

Yes. Before proceeding with any payments, you will receive a list of all the data we were able to recover for review and approval.

With more than a decade of expertise, SalvageData can boast a 96% successful recovery rate on SAN systems.

In case your SAN data is found to be unrecoverable, you will be given a choice of either safely disposing of the device, or getting it returned by mail. The cost of return shipping is at the client’s expense.

How much is SAN data recovery?

The cost of SAN data recovery varies greatly on the type of damage, not the amount of data recovered.
