what could be causing data to shift ?

Tried to isolate the cause of the shifting but to no avail. I've used different HBA, some RAID and some non-RAID, different machines, cables, dest drives etc. Seems to be luck of the draw, imaged all SAS drives in the end with no shifting but it took a few goes to get a handful perfect, weird case. ...

what could be causing data to shift ?

Got this weird issue going on where I'm imaging a couple of SAS drives using DE and the images have shifted their data by a few sectors. Obviously this is causing my array to be crud. Any ideas as to what may be the culprit ? I've done several this way with 100% success but tow of them are being a c...

Need a stable 8 port SATA card, any recomendations ?

I did think of making some images on my RAID stack and then mounting them, but it aint got enough capacity to handle this mutha so thought I'd do bare metal and wire them all up :roll: My sata's are all controlled via intel chipset and apparently intel doesn't allow port multiplying, there goes that...

Coronavirus COVID-19 Affecting Data Recovery Business?

We started slowing down about 15 days ago, up until then we were very busy. This past week most cases have declined recovery due to financial issues etc but some cases have paid up and some are still coming through the door.
