Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are quickly gaining popularity.
Plugging into a free Ethernet port on your router, switch or PC, these
devices provide a quick and convenient way to increase storage space
available to a single PC or the entire network without the need of a
computer to share the attached storage. Some NAS devices have data
capacity of 24 TB or more.
NAS devices are much more complex than regular USB drive enclosures.
Often featuring internal RAID arrays to achieve the huge advertised
capacities, these devices are more difficult to recover data from
should anything happen to them.
NAS failure are commonly due to
Human errors: Data loss often happens accidentally
due to reformatting, reinstallation, deleting or overwriting a volume.
Power failure/Overheating/PCB chipset break down
Defective NAS controllers: Defective controllers can cause errors during
reformats or rebuilds. Errors in the firmware or operating system caused
by reconfiguring the memory can cause data loss.
Mechanical Failure: Rebuilding a contaminated RAID system requires special
knowledge and the ability to thoroughly clean
individual drives and other components of the NAS. Only then can the data
be restored by a logical rebuild.
