SERT engineers are no stranger when it comes to Data Robotics and their line of NAS RAID devices. Whether you have a small office, or are a residential user, SERT’s Drobo data recovery service will get you safely back up to speed.
Drobo devices beyond RAID configurations allow for redundancy where drives might fail. During a failure or loss of access, the very next steps you take are the most crucial in order to avoid data loss.
It’s important to understand what caused the failure, and the experts at SERT will be able to easily determine the reason as well as fix it.
Drobo Proprietary array software
Drobo’ s proprietary RAID array software configuration can cause recovery to be problematic when systems go down.
Often times recovering a failed Drobo requires the drives to be repaired, or imaged, in order for the array to be recognized again, giving access to your data.
SERT engineers are trained to quickly get you back in business at an affordable rate.
We invite you to take advantage of our experience when it comes to RAID data recovery, and your Drobo device. You can count on our world class support for all your Data Robotics products!

Increase the chances for complete data recovery from your Drobo failure
In order to maximize the success of your Drobo data recovery (and to reduce downtime) it is best to immediately shut down your Drobo device, as soon as the problem occurs.
This will prevent any accidental overwrites of your data, or further damage to the platter(s) or any other critical component inside the drives. In case, there’s been a hardware issue – this action will also ensure that no additional damage will affect the device.
How do I recovery my data from my Drobo storage device?
What do I do when I have failure lights on my Drobo drive?
Each case is different and requires different techniques and methods. You can help our technicians develop a unique recovery plan by providing as much information as possible about the device and its history of symptoms.
Drobo devices have integrated warning signs, in form of LEDs, in order to let the user know that something unusual is going on with the device. You should particularly watch for the blinking red LED, which indicates the failure of one of the drives.
Drobo – Beyond RAID Technology
Data Robotics is one of the world’s leading companies in server industry. Their line of servers (available as RAID-like configurations, SAN and NAS) is characterized with remarkable stability and adaptability. The latest Data Robotics devices support the mix of drives using non-standard algorithms, the company named the BeyondRAID. It allows the user to combine different sized drives in the array, with redundancy of up to three drive failures!
Furthermore, it allows the user to reorder the drives in the array, and even to upgrade the capacity or volume on-the-fly! Drobo devices are not just simple RAID configurations – they combine different levels of RAID technology. However, even Drobo may experience failure, and when this happens, you know whom to call – call SERT Data Recovery to secure the best possible results.
