Network attached storage data recovery (NAS data recovery) is the process of recovering and restoring data from a NAS drive, server or infrastructure.
It enables recovery of data that has been deleted, corrupted or become inaccessible on a NAS or any of its storage components.
Typically, NAS data recovery is performed through a combination of manual and automated data recovery processes. The manual testing generally requires storage drives to be taken out and installed within a similar device. If the storage drive is physically damaged, it needs to be repaired or replaced before data can be recovered from it.
In enterprise NAS environments, the NAS drive has backup storage in the form of RAID or a similar solution. The backup images of NAS drives are stored in the RAID infrastructure and can be accessed and restored when required.
