Professional RAID Data Recovery Services For Apple Xserve Systems
Apple Xserve systems use many different RAID levels - and at R3, we offer various services for each configuration.
The most popular Apple Xserve configuration is the standard stripe set that has parity - the RAID 5. The default stripe size for RAIDs is 64k, which makes for 128 sectors. In such sets, the data is striped across each disk, and a parity block which rotates between the drives. This particular parity block utilizes a XOR algorithm.
In a RAID 5 system, if a disk happens to fail, the RAID controller card defaults to degraded mode, allowing the server to carry on operating with no interruption. Data recovery might be necessary in case there's corruption within essential parity blocks, or if a second drive happens to fails the array is operated in that state. Additional data loss may happen in case of RAID controller card failures, failed firmware upgrades, or natural disasters.
Xserve supports other hardware RAID levels - namely levels 0, 1, 3 and 0+1. Other levels, such as 10, 30 and 50 can be chosen too, but these need to be supported through the use of host-based software RAID. Our engineers are skilled in dealing with all sorts of configurations, including options that the Xserve hardware does not support - and our laboratories are completely equipped to perform Xserve data recovery.

My RAID 5 server got severely corrupted by windows checkdisk.
R3 data recovery did their best to recover the data and got a lot of files back for me - but a lot was also lost. I doubt anyone else would have managed to do more so better than I feared (rather than better than expected).
R3 are very organised and efficient and provide pretty much 24/7 support. They will show you exactly what they can recover before you have to pay up. Data returned on a USB drive with the original drive delivered back to you in "as received" condition - all included in the "more than I'd hoped but less than I'd feared" cost.
My advice if you have a drive crash is touch nothing and get it to R3; then stand back and let them do the job.. They are totally trustworthy and you won't be ripped off.
