These days organisations prefer to implement RAID servers, SAN(Storage Area Network), NAS(Network Attached Storage) to ensure better safety and efficiency of storage system. As data is most important asset of any organisation. Whole functionality of any organisation solely depends upon smooth flow of information.
Storage System Manufacturers also implement some mechanism in order to safeguard data in severe situations. Some SAN units incorporate device block-level organisation and some other SAN units have an internal block-level transaction log in. But these mechanism also not work during situation and can not stop data loss.
Below are some storage policies that should be followed by storage administrator in order to avoid further damage:

Failed drive rebuilding : While rebuilding the single failed drive wait till the time controller card complete the process. If second drive failed during the process just stop the process and consult to expert.
Architecture : Properly plan the storage system configuration.
Above mentioned steps will help you but up to certain extent. If any time encounter data loss, before taking any further step just consult to data recovery services expert. As this complex architectured storage systems require experienced data recovery expert’s hand, control environment of Class 100 Clean Room, and advanced tools. If exposed to some experienced hands, disaster will be unpredictable. As data recovery experts follow certain steps mentioned below in order to recover your precious data:
