The question has often been asked of our data recovery West Somerset engineers ‘Why hasn’t someone invented the unbreakable hard drive?’ This is something that makes us smile because (a) that person would be worth a fortune and (b) there would be no need for a premier data recovery service such as ours if such a hard drive existed. The truth of the matter is though that such a hard drive is not possible because solid state drives have no moving components but are still susceptible to problems with firmware and the transistors and capacitors that work inside them.

Of course when it comes to our data recovery West Somerset engineers recovering data from failing (or failed) storage devices it isn’t always hard drives that are the problem. There are external hard disk drives to take into consideration, mass storage devices, network assisted storage (NAS), and memory sticks and memory cards; all of these devices are susceptible to issues that will involve the loss or inaccessibility of data for their users.

Going back to the early days of the hard drive (the 1960s and 1970s) and the so-called ‘Winchester drives’ all hard drives and storage devices have been likely to failure leaving the user(s) unable to access their data and calling for the need of a hard drive recovery service such as our West Somerset and Somerset service.

I can see the data but can’t access it, why not?

Our data recovery West Somerset engineers often hear this refrained when we take calls from new and old clients alike. The simple fact is that sometimes the hard drive has failed in that the operating system will not allow it to be accessed because of a bad sector and this can happen while the computer is still switched on. If you switch the computer off and then back on again the likelihood is that the computer will not boot up correctly because the boot sector9s) will fail to initialise because they have been damaged.

If you have found that after rebooting your computer you are unable to get passed the BIOS screen then it is probably the case the hard drive has failed and if this is the case our data recovery West Somerset engineers suggest you power down and call us on 0117 3321137. Our technical team will be able to provide you with an initial assessment of the situation including a preliminary diagnosis of the problem and a no obligation quotation (this quote may include an additional charge if the drive has suffered a mechanical failure) and if you are happy with this and would like us to recover the data on the drive we ask that you send the affected drive to us here at our data recovery West Somerset and Somerset centre. You can do this one of three ways – using Royal Mail (although we strongly advise the registering or recording of your package as we cannot be held responsible for the loss of a hard drive or other storage device in transit to us), by courier or in person if you are in a position to do so.

Once we have taken delivery of the drive our data recovery West Somerset engineers will make a definitive diagnosis and then get back to you with our findings by email. The email we send you will contain a detailed list of the data that can be recovered (including all of the files, folders, directories and sub-directories) and if this is acceptable and you wish for us to continue we ask that you make payment to us using BACs transfer, credit or debit card (we do not accept PayPal). If your data to be recovered exceeds 30GBs in size we ask that you purchase an external storage device from our stock which our engineers will discuss with you. Once the payment has been received you data will be recovered to its new storage media or device and returned to you via next day courier. For more information, a no obligation quote or to find out about the data recovery options open to you call our team today on 0117 3321137 (our telephone lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm as is our data recovery centre except Christmas Day and Easter).
