Today, DiskInternals Research has updated its RAID Recovery™ and VMFS Recovery™ tools. This software is now able to restore RAID disks and perform data recovery almost instantly. Before explaining the details of this update, let us first explain what the Storage Spaces are.
The Storage Spaces are, technically, virtual drives appearing within the File Explorer as normal local storage. They are created by users. Each storage space that is created can have a lesser, equal, or greater amount in comparison to the physical capacity available within the storage pool.
Storage Spaces Direct Overview
Storage Spaces Direct uses industry-standard servers with local-attached drives to create highly available and scalable software-defined storage at a fraction of the cost of traditional SAN or NAS arrays. The converged or hyper-converged architecture of Storage Spaces Direct radically simplifies the processes of procurement and deployment. It also has caching, storage tiers, and erasure coding, among other features. Together with the latest hardware innovations, such as RDMA networking and NVMe drives, Storage Spaces Direct delivers unrivaled efficiency and performance.
Storage Spaces Direct is included in Windows Server 2016 Datacenter and Windows Server Insider Preview Builds.
Some valuable features implemented with the latest update of DiskInternals software include:
Works with all Storage Spaces layouts: simple, mirror and parity.
Easy compatibility with all known Windows versions.
Free trial versions of all DiskInternals software.
Information About DiskInternals Products
If there is a need to perform VMware recovery™, we have a VMFS Recovery™ tool. It offers a safe, easy way to recover information stored on VMFS-formatted disks. VMware VMFS was designed to store files and images within a virtual machine. Like any other form of storage media, VMware disks can be damaged by software and hardware defects.
Bad blocks and physical corruption of the hard drives storing the virtual disk images can also cause corruption of VMware® images. Following the guidelines built into the software, and mount VMDK file within the recovery process.
If there is a need to perform RAID data recovery, DiskInternals has a solution called RAID Recovery™. This software tool restores data from corrupted arrays automatically. RAID Recovery™ is the first tool that automatically detects the type of an original RAID array. It also allows one to perform recovery manually. RAID Recovery™ is a highly valuable tool for users of all types of RAID arrays, both hardware and software. The drag-and-drop user interface allows one to specify parts of the RAID array simply by dragging and dropping icons, each one of which represents a disk. This tool is able to restore data from many array types, including RAID 5. It recognizes all imaginable configurations of various array types. It can recognize RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 1+0, 1E, RAID 4, RAID 5, 50, 5EE, 5R, RAID 6, 60 and JBOD. It doesn’t matter whether they are connected to a RAID server, a dedicated RAID controller, or a RAID-enabled motherboard from NVidia®, Intel®, or VIA®.
In case there is a need to perform BitLocker recovery and restore files from damaged or formatted NTFS disks, try RAID™ or VMFS Recovery™. Both of these tools now have built-in EFS Recovery. Recover encrypted files and folders from healthy or damaged NTFS disks and RAID arrays. Whether a disk with protected files was moved to another PC, an encrypted file or folder was deleted, the partition was formatted, or experienced hard disk corruption, Diskinternals tools will help you get back the encrypted information quickly and easily. Both RAID™ and VMFS™ Recovery tools support NTFS/EFS partitions created by Windows 10, Windows 7, and 2008 Server R1/R2, as well as Windows 2000, XP, 2003 Server, and Windows Vista.
