Maybe you wanted an inexpensive data share for your small business, so you went out and bought a network attached storage device (NAS), took five minutes to set it up, and got back to work. Since setting up your new Z:\ drive was so simple and convenient, you might have forgotten a few things–like setting up notifications and alerts in case of hard drive failure or other errors, or keeping track of the credentials you used during the initial configuration. Months or years down the line, your NAS device breaks down, leaving parts of your business paralyzed. It’s a common story: one our NAS data recovery experts hear from clients all the time.
Data recovery from NAS devices tends to be the kind of thing you leave up to professionals like the ones at Gillware. Due to their complexity, they can be difficult even for computer repair experts to troubleshoot sometimes. Sometimes, it can be unclear whether the NAS device’s hard drive (or drives) has failed or if something is merely wrong with a part of the enclosure.

Hard drives have very sensitive and delicate moving parts inside them. When they fail, often one or more of these delicate components are often to blame. Gillware’s professional engineers can repair and replace failed hard drive components, such as read/write heads, control boards, and spindle motors. When hard disk platters become scratched or coated with debris, our state-of-the-art burnishing tools can clean the platters and save your data.

The most popular Synology NAS models are their DiskStations, such as the DS418 and the DS1019. In some cases, data loss from these devices can occur after running Time Machine and the data consistency check at the same time. This causes files to become corrupt. Data also gets deleted in most cases that the user interface becomes unavailable.
Some of the most common models from Buffalo are the Terastation 1200D and the LinkStation 210. There are a number of different causes for data loss with these models. Files may become permanently inaccessible after changing the permissions on the device, the network interface may have died, or there may be complete drive failure.
Two of the most commonly used NAS devices from QNAP are the TS-451 and the TS-231P. These models encounter data loss when the server does not power on or when the drive itself is inaccessible. Another common issue resulting in data loss is when the device does not recognize the default username and password combination, prohibiting the user from logging in. To learn more about data recovery from QNAP devices, read our QNAP NAS Recovery Case Study.
The most common Western Digital NAS models are the My Cloud EX2 and the My Cloud PR4100. There are a number of different scenarios during which data loss can occur in these devices.
The most common NAS model from Seagate is the IronWolf model. Sometimes, users of this model may experience data loss after booting wipes out the data and an error message appears as a result. We see Seagate devices come in all the time, and have a very high success rate when it comes to recovering data from them. Read our Seagate NAS Recovery Case Study to find out more.
The 2TB EZ Media & Backup Center and the StorCenter IX2-200 are 2 of the most common models manufactured by Iomega. Some of the most common data loss scenarios in these devices occur after updating the firmware. Other data loss issues may occur when a RAID fails, or if the device reconfigures itself. For more information on Iomega NAS data recovery, check out our case study on RAID-10 failure in the StorCenter model.
Asustor manufactures NAS devices such as the 1002t personal cloud, and the AS6404T. In most data loss cases involving Asustor devices, users encounter data loss after updating and/or restarting the device.
Netgear is the manufacturer of the readyNAS models, including the readyNAS 2304 and the readyNAS 424. Many times with Netgear models, users are unable to access their data after the file owner switches to a guest account locked with a password rather than the admin account that they own.
Zyxel manufactures a number of NAS devices, including the Zyxel NAS326, and the Zyxel NAS540. Often times in these models, users encounter data loss after a firmware update. Shared drives may go missing as a result of a firmware update in the Zyxel NAS devices as well.
