Exchange Server Hard Drive Recovery

Many times we get in Exchange servers that have had physical failures and require hard drive recovery before we can extract mailboxes out of the Exchange database. Most Exchange servers are configured in a RAID array and have multiple hard drives that need to be recovered prior to Exchange restoration.

Hard Drive Recovery For Exchange

If the Exchange Server has had a physical failure, that the first step is hard drive recovery. DTI has a class 100 clean room where they perform the repairs to the hard disk to extract the data and the databases. DTI is one of only a few data recovery companies in the world that specialize in both Exchange restoration and hard drive recovery.

The ideal set up for Exchange is that the operating system and programs are on one partition or hard drive that is set up in a RAID 1. The MDBDATA folder that houses the PRIV1 EDB and STM as well as the PUB1 EDB and STM should be on a secondary partition that is on a RAID 1 for a smaller Exchange install, or a RAID 5 for larger or Enterprise storage groups.

If your server has crashed call our Exchange emergency line at 727-251-2058 or the numbers below during normal business hours. If you have had a physical crash visit our site about hard drive recovery.
