Zero size files

I recently encountered a NAS recovery where ransomware from a workstation, edited files and wrote them back with no data before deleting them. Is it possible to be the case for this? Though, it is odd that the dates showing are quite old.

Dust particle Measuring Device

My Dylos was only a few hundred bucks, tops. It takes 1-2 minutes to get to a 0 reading, about the same amount of time as it takes to unscrew the top cover.

MRT Still Trading?

6 HDD SATA in RAID - 0 How to

According to my expirience, half of RAID0 is actually not raid0. I would research that without trusting any client's words. In case if it is not raid0, there is huge chance to recover data without malfunctioning disk. You do have a good point here. I was just telling someone else that it is always ...

Possibly heating or cooling the NAND chip. However, the odds are you won't get anything more.

Step 1 - get the failed drive functioning so that you can get it mirrored (You'll need PC3K UDMA-E or Express to work with the firmware on a SATA drive) Step 2 - mirror the "good" drives Step 3 - virtually recreate the RAID 0 array and recover the data If you cannot get past Step 1, you ar...

HFS RAW Repair or recovery

UFS explorer supports Apple encryption, too. But, you won't get anywhere without the encryption key.
