Taunton Deane Data Recovery

Data recovery Taunton Deane: For over a decade and a half our engineers have been providing the businesses and computer users of Taunton Deane and Somerset with the premier data recovery service that has enabled them to retrieve their lost or inaccessible data and return to the business of running a business or preparing for a university degree, comfortable in the knowledge that the data recovered was the most up-to-date on the failed storage device. Call us between 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday on 0117 3321137 to find out how we can help recover your data or for a no obligation quote.

When it comes to how hard drives operate many computer users concentrate on the ins and outs of the hard drive’s components and not on other components such as the ‘logic board’ or ‘controller board’. Depending on the age of the hard drive in your computer the hard drive may have a logic board attached which sends information back and forth to both drive and motherboard via a small but vital program known as ‘firmware’. Over the years our data recovery Taunton Deane engineers have helped many users retrieve the data from hard drives that have suffered failures because of issues with the firmware such as corruption or the program becoming out-dated or obsolete altogether.

More recently manufactured hard drives have the firmware pre-loaded onto the boot sector of the hard drive which allows for ease of use when the drive is installed into the computer. However as our data recovery Taunton Deane engineers know only too well if there are issues with this boot sector which can be caused by the corruption of the sector because of bad sectors or itinerant software rewriting the sectors to suit how it runs.

One of the issues most prevalent recently that require the assistance of a hard drive recovery service are those relating to the new Microsoft Windows 8.1 that will not recognise a number of hard drives that are either installed after the operating system has been installed or have been rendered moot because of the operating system’s installation onto a partition of the drive.

I thought the operating system would recognise all of the components in the computer!

You would think the answer to this would be yes, but as our data recovery Taunton Deane and Somerset engineers have been explaining to our clients as we have helped them recover their data, this new operating system seems to have issue with older drives and older software. Other versions of Windows such as XP (still considered by many to be the most stable although no longer supported) had no such problems and would simply acknowledge the existence of any storage component added to it but because for the most part Windows 8.12 is based on 64 bit technology there are a great many drives that will not function correctly and will end up being unreadable by the software.

Has your hard drive ceased to function after the installation of Windows 8.1? Are you being told by the operating system that data is no longer available even though you can clearly see it listed in file manager? If so then you need the assistance of our data recovery Taunton Deane engineers. Call today on 0117 3321137 and speak to a member of the team who will talk you through our initial assessment process and provide you with one of our no obligation quotations. (The quote may contain an additional charge if the drive has been subject to mechanical damage but our engineers will explain this to you). If you are happy that we can recover your data and do so efficiently and cost effectively then we ask that you send the afflicted drive to us here at our data recovery centre. You can do this using Royal Mail (we strongly recommend you register or record your package if you choose this option as we cannot be held responsible for the loss of a storage device in transit to us), courier or you may be able to deliver it in person if you are nearby.

Having taken possession of your hard drive our data recovery Taunton Deane engineers will diagnose the problem and report back to you using email. Our email will explain the nature of the problem as well as how we propose to resolve it for you and will also contain a list of all the data that can be safely recovered. (If said data exceeds 30GBs we may ask that you purchase an external storage device from our stocks). If you are happy to continue we ask that you make payment to us in full using either credit or debit card or BACS transfer. Having made payment in full we will then recover your data to its new media and return it to you via next day courier service. For further information on how we can recover your data and the options open to you regarding timescale and budget, call our team today on 0117 3321137 – telephone lines are open 9am to 6pm as is our data recovery centre – and they are open Monday to Friday (Christmas Day and Easter excepted).
