Data Recovery Forest of Dean: When it comes to hard drives, external hard disk drives, mass storage devices, network assisted storage (NAS) and a variety of other storage devices that are prone to rendering the data held on them inaccessible, our engineers are second to none at retrieving that data and returning it to its rightful owners. We do this using the most up-to-date technology available plus over 16 years’ experience in the field of data recovery. For more information on how we can reunite you with your lost or inaccessible data call now on 0117 3321137.
Depending on who you are will depend very much on the kind of computer you have at your disposal. If you are a designer or a creative artist you may have a computer that is high powered with lots of memory and hard drive space, the same if you are a home musician or photographer, producing coursework that just requires word processing or a spreadsheet may require memory but not as much space – whatever the reason for using a computer the loss of the data can be heartbreaking and our data recovery Forest of Dean engineers are often called upon to help retrieve it for individuals and businesses crossing the spectrum.
In our time as data recovery Forest of Dean engineers we have recovered data from hard drives that have been formatted to FAT16, FAT32, NTFS and other formats depending on the operating system – Linux, Unix, Windows, Mac, we have retrieved data from all of these and continue to do so today with an expanded selection to choose from now that computers in the workplace and at home have taken on a new significance.
There are so many hard drives out there in circulation that it would be hard to keep up with them if you tried to count; and the same can be said for the types of drive that are still being used today. Our hard drive recovery engineers are regularly being asked to recover data from hard drives that would have – or should have – been rendered obsolete long ago but one thing we have learned, if a hard drive continues to function a user will continue to use it. And this makes logical sense because if you have an older computer not every hard drive will fit in and be accepted by its motherboard.
What’s in a name? A hard drive is a hard drive surely!
There are so many types of hard drive in existence today it would be impossible to list them all on this page but for the sake of it the main ones that our data recovery Forest of Dean and Gloucestershire engineers encounter regularly are: IDE, ATA, SATA, SCSI, EIDE, Ultra DMA and ATAPI (very old and used mostly for CD-ROMS but occasionally found its way onto a hard drive logic board).
Whatever hard drive you are using to store your data to the last thing you want to happen is for it to fail and to fail before you have had the chance to make a backup of all your data. If it has failed and you haven’t been able to make a backup call our data recovery Forest of Dean engineers today on 0117 3321137 and they will talk you through the initial process including providing you with an assessment of the problem plus a no obligation quote (the quote may include an additional charge if the drive has suffered mechanical failure or damage). If you are happy that we can recover your data we ask that you send the affected drive (we don’t need the whole system as we produce an image of your data from the drive itself) to us here at our data recovery Forest of Dean and Gloucestershire centre.
Having received the affected drive our data recovery Forest of Dean engineers will make a definitive diagnosis of the problem inflicting it and will report back to you via email including a list of all the data we can recover successfully. If you wish us to continue we ask that you make full payment to us using BACS, credit or debit card (we may ask that you purchase an external storage device if the data to be recovered is larger than our standard 30GBs recovery allowance). Once payment has been received we will recover the data to its new medium and return it by next day courier service (the cost of which is included in the quote). For more information on how we can recover your data from an old, antiquated drive call us today on 0117 3321137 – our data recovery centre and telephone lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm.
