One of the most frustrating things that will happen to a computer user is the dreaded hard drive crash and you suddenly realise that you don’t have a recent backup of your personal data, documents and even worse, those hundreds or thousands of digital photos. But all is not always lost, even in the most seemingly worst of cases.
We have had great success in recovering drives that are no longer bootable or accessible by the computer. In many cases we have been able to recover a hard drive so it is once again accessible, although it would be unadvisable to continue using the drive for regular use, it does allow us to backup specific data or clone the entire hard drive to a new one.
Using a range of software we have also had success recovering data when the physical drive is not the problem, but the data was simply deleted by accident or through some error which has made the data invisible to the operating system.
Tip: In the case of data loss, it is important to turn off your computer immediately. This will minimise the chance of over writing and corrupting the deleted data.

Please note: We do not have facilities to disassemble the drive. Our methods rely on the drive being physically operational and provide a cheaper, first option, which in many cases is successful. If your drive has physically stopped working, was involved in some sort of electrical surge failure or has been partially destroyed, then you will need to send it to a specialist company with dust free laboratory conditions in order to disassemble the drive and attempt to retrieve the data directly off the platters, which is considerably more expensive.
