Data Recovery

With the rapid diffusion of data storage technology and the sheer volume of data now stored, the potential for data loss is greater than ever.

. We offer industry leading Data Recovery services to help you retrieve that important data. Our method is simple and fair – we don’t charge you outrageous fees to attempt to recover data like some competitors. Instead we charge a nominal fee to diagnose the damage and discover what files exactly can be recovered. We will provide you with a report detailing every file that can be recovered from your media. Included with this report is a complete cost of the fees associated with recovering those files. You will know exactly what files will be recovered before paying any direct recovery fees.

Data Protection Tips
  • Store computer equipment in a safe environment.

    Your computer should be in a dry, cool, controlled environment that is clean, dust-free and secluded.

  • Backup your data regularly

    Back up data at least once a week with reliable tapes or other storage devices, always verifying that the correct data is backed up.

  • Use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

    In the event of a surge of electricity or lightning strike, an uninterruptible power supply protects the computer from becoming damaged. In addition, a UPS has a battery backup that keeps the computer running, allowing you to save the data and avoid data loss. If UPS is not a viable solution, a surge protector is also a good investment.

  • Run a virus scan regularly and update it regularly.

    Computer viruses are one of the worst enemies to data protection. Good anti-virus software tests your system for sequences of code unique to each known computer virus and eliminates the infecting invader.

  • Be aware of strange noises.

    Should you hear strange noises or grinding sounds, you should turn off your computer immediately and call us. Further operation may damage your hard drive beyond repair.

  • If you do experience data loss.

Tips for Successful Data Recovery

There follows a number of tips for safeguarding data against additional damage in the event of data loss. Perhaps the most important tip is to never assume that data is irrecoverable. Professional data recovery services offer the expertise and tools required to recover data quickly and successfully.

Physical Damage

Physical damage can manifest itself in many forms including clicking, grinding, spinning or other strange noises. If you suspect physical damage, these tips can help reduce further data loss:

  • Do not shake, disassemble or attempt to clean any hard drive or server that has been damaged - improper handling can jeopardize the data recovery process
  • Never attempt to operate any visibly damaged devices
  • Turn off computer immediately - further operation may damage data beyond repair
  • Do not use recovery software since it may destroy what was otherwise recoverable data
  • Do not place a fire-damaged drive in refrigerator to cool media and do not try to remove hard drive - ship entire computer for recovery
  • Never attempt to dry water damaged media by exposing it to heat. Instead, place the media in a container that will keep it damp before shipping

Physical damage, no matter what the cause, requires clean room attention.

Non-Physical Damage
  • Users may see messages such as “No OS found”, “Corrupt Volume” or may simply be missing files and folders
  • Shut the computer down immediately. The longer a damaged hard drive is left running, the more data that can be irretrievably lost
  • Do not run “CHKDSK” or “VRepair”
