Exchange Server 5.5 Data Recovery

Date: 06-05-2006
Data Recovery Client: Entertainment Industry Client
Hard Drive Type: (3) Seagate Cheetahs
OS Type: Windows 2000 Server / Exchange Server 5.5
Initial Problem: Can't acces the data on this RAID 0 array with 3 drives.
Resolution: The requested files were recoverable.


Background on the Data Recovery Call
There were 3 drives configured as a RAID 0 array totaling approximately 25 GBs. The drives had the OS and Exchange 5.5 on it. One of the drives faulted which caused the client to lose the entire array. The client tried placing the drives in another server, but the RAID was already in a failed state. At that point they contacted ADR Data Recovery.


Overview of the steps involved

  • Imaged hard drive 0. Other hard drives were unresponsive.
  • Used parts from hard drive 0 to repair hard drives 1 and 2 temporarily.
  • Virtually rebuilt the array and was able to view partition.
  • Sent the customer a file list of what can be recovered.
