Data Recovery

When you turn on your computer and nothing happens or you can't get to the data or photos you need, your first thought should be to call us so we can get your data back for you. We have the advanced software and hardware necessary to retrieve your vital files, photos, and anything else of value to you on your hard drive. We can retrieve data from computers with Windows, Apple, Linux, and many other file systems. Be careful of taking your drive to some cheap place you see listed on Google. They can often do more damage to your drive and make your data harder to recover. We are a professional CDRE (Certified Data Recovery Expert) company and have all of the tools that the national chains have. We work on hard drives (1.8”, 2.5”, 3.5”), thumb drives, SD cards, and anything else that holds data.

Our prices start at $375 for a logical recovery and if there is a physical problem (heads, PCB, etc.) the charge will depend on the cost of parts and the amount of time needed. Estimates are free and always discussed with the customer before any work is done.

The following are a few of the interesting recoveries we have had in the last few months:

Recovered data from a drive that had been in a customer’s freezer for two years

When people Google data recovery, the suggestion to put the drive in the freezer often comes up as a neat “trick”. It almost always does more harm than good. We took the drive and determined that one of the heads was bad. The customer didn’t want to pay for a donor drive so we turned off the bad head with the PC3000 and imaged what was under the other seven heads. We were able to get back thousands of pictures and documents for him.

Recovered all files from a formatted and corrupted SD card

The customer had mistakenly formatted his SD card which held hundreds of videos that he had made for his final class project. We were able to recover the videos and then realized that they were all corrupted. Working with some specialized software we were able to successfully retrieve all of his videos and he received an A on his final project.

Performed a hot swap on a Samsung drive

A hot swap involves taking the PCB (board) from the donor drive and basically starting it on the donor drive with the information from the customer drive. It is then put to sleep and transferred back to the customer drive and powered on.We were able to get all of the customer’s data back for him.
