Good IT practice suggests that you back up your data and store the backed-up data in a secure place, called vaulting, which assumes that an organization's computer files are copied regularly on some type of removable medium, such as magnetic tape, CD or hard disk, and then delivered to an off-site location for safekeeping. The timing and extent of backups can vary (from continuous real time to once a day or once a week), depending on the organization's needs.

Buffalo warrants your product against any defect in material and workmanship, under normal use, for the designated warranty period. The warranty becomes effective from the date of shipment. In the event this product is found to be defective within the warranty period, Buffalo will, at its discretion, repair or replace the defective product.

This warranty is void if:

  • The product was operated/stored in abnormal use or maintenance conditions;
  • The product is repaired, modified or altered
  • The product was subjected to abuse, neglect, electrical fault, improper packaging, accident or acts of nature;
  • The product was installed improperly;
  • The serial number of the product is defaced or missing;
  • The tamper seal on the casing is broken.
  • The product is upgraded with firmware not applicable to region of purchase.

For storage products: Under various circumstances, such as damage from extreme conditions like floods, power fluctuations, damage caused during the installation of the drive, damage caused by improper or improperly used packaging, or physical misuse or abuse, the data on a disk drive may be inaccessible through normal operations. However, the data may be recoverable through extraordinary means offered through a specialized data recovery service.

Buffalo does not perform any data recovery services. If you are unable to access data on your drive due to damage such as that mentioned above, you may wish to consider contacting an independent data recovery service.
