recover data from storage spaces volumes

Fernando Loitey 21 Reputation points

Hi all, how are you? Somebody deletes aprox 60TB of backups data from volumes created in Storage Spaces... a bit..

The storage solution is working with Windows Storage Server 2016, these volumes are presented in virtual disks (20TB with tiering) using Storage Spaces, but in low level, the "physical disks" presented for Storage Spaces, are really virtual disks (49TB) created by IDRAC unsing different physical disks with raid 6..

This is completely a human error, not Windows or storage spaces error.
Based in your experiences, it's possible to recover any data from these volumes using some kind of recovery software? Like Ontrack or similar

Reading in Microsoft technet, I have seen difficulties to recover data because they are volumes in storage spaces.
Thanks in advance!

    It's pity to say, there's no official method to recovery manually deleted data from Storage space.

    Thanks for your time!
    Best Regards,
