Recover Data from a corrupted Windows Storage Space

The system was BSoD-ed while a permission update was processing. After a reboot, the system can't recognize all the drives. When I start Disk manager, it stuck at the 'Virtual Disk' part. I set up the Windows Storage Space with parity and fixed configuration. I use 3x WD Re 4TB HDD. How can I recover the data? If I go data recovery company (ones with their own lab), how much will cost me (around 3.5TB data to recover)?

  1. The cost will be a lot less if one does not "try everything" before shipping it.
    Does Windows 7 have Storage Space operations? Which Windows are you using? I'm learning alongside you.

    Windows 10 Pro x64, and Win7 don't have Storage Space.

  3. I just got a quote from secruedatarecovery.com. They ask for $1.5k to $6.5k for recovery depending the condition of the HDD and the difficulty to recover. Is any other data recovery firms have a slightly lower price? It is soooooo expensive!

  6. Even though I'm a Windows 7 user, I'd like to learn more about Windows 10 Storage Space reclamation - from your experiences. Please keep us posted to what you did to successfully get your data back, thanks!

  7. You state, "the system can't recognize all the drives" so have one or more drives failed?

    The first thing I would do is check the SMART health status of each drive with a tool like CrystalDiskInfo.

    If indeed you have failing drives the first step in DIY recovery would be to make clone images. Linux ddrescue is a popular choice for cloning failing drives.

  8. +1, Haran. It's best to first do data recovery before doing any DIY hardware/software diagnostics.

    Yes, all three drives failed. I will check the SMART info if I have time. Currently I just unplug them from my system.
