Cotswold Data Recovery

Data Recovery Cotswold: Our engineers have successfully recovered the data from many thousands of storage devices over the last decade and a half, equating to many thousands of terabytes of data returned to its rightful owners that would have been written off as lost forever. Using up-to-the-minute recovery technology, a wealth of experience and knowledge of storage devices and our own bespoke recovery techniques, we offer a recovery service second to none in the Cotswold and Gloucestershire area. For more information and a no obligation quote call us today on 0117 3321137.

Have you recently installed a piece of software onto your computer only to find that the computer has stopped working correctly? If so then it might be the time to contact our data recovery Cotswold engineers to find out how they can help you recover the data from the hard drive before it becomes lost permanently. The installation of some software programs can lead to the failure of a hard drive if said software has written new files over old or has prompted the production of a restore point that involves the moving of files from one sector to another.

Bad sectors can often cause a hard drive to fail without warning and our data recovery Cotswold engineers are on hand to help if this situation does unfold. It can be the case that the installation of new software creates a system restore point that recognises failing sectors on the disk and therefore renders the disk inoperable during the process.

It can also be the case that the hard drive is rendered useless if a DEFRAG program has been initiated as part of the installation of a new piece of software. To this end our data recovery service is ideal for retrieving data before it can be lost for good; something that can happen if the hard drive is allowed to be altered further by such things as the DEFRAG program.

NTLDR is missing and a re-format has been suggested

Our data recovery Cotswold engineers are often called upon when their computer reports that the NTLDR file is missing or corrupt. This happens when the installation of a new piece of software causes files on a particular sector to be removed or moved to another sector thus leaving the operating system unable to find the relevant files necessary to start up properly. Some might suggest the reformatting of the drive in order to reinstall the operating system but our data recovery Cotswold and Gloucestershire engineers would strongly advise against this as the reformatting of a drive can lead to the loss of data on a permanent basis.

If you have lost access to your hard drive after the installation of a new program we suggest you power down your computer and ensure it cannot be used by anyone else. Contact our data recovery Cotswold engineers on 0117 3321137 and a member of the team will talk you through the initial assessment process which includes providing you with a no obligation quote (there may be an additional charge if the drive has suffered mechanical damage). If, after we have explained everything, you are happy for us to recover your data we ask that you send the drive to us at our data recovery centre. You can do this using the post office, courier or delivering it in person if feasible.

On receipt of the drive into our data recovery centre our data recovery Cotswold staff will make a firm diagnosis of the drive and report back to you with a detailed list of the data that can be done. This is done and provided to you on email so that you can see for yourself exactly what data is being recovered (if the data to be recovered is in excess of our standard allowance of 30GBs then we ask that you purchase an external storage device from us). Once you are happy that we can recover all of your data and wish us to do so we require payment to be made to us by BACS or credit/debit card. On receiving the payment our engineers will recover the data to its new media or storage device and then return it to you via next day courier. For more information on how we can recover your data and a no obligation quote call us today on 0117 3321137 – our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm (telephone and data recovery centre) and our engineers are standing by to take your call.
