Are you in Need of Data Recovery Now ?
What Causes your data or hard drive to become corrupt? To be honest most hard drives will at some stage in their lives fail, this is because they are mechanical devices and over time will wear and inevitably fail.
The internal components of a hard drive, although they look quite basic, are in fact very complex, considering that the disk is rotating at speeds of up to 7000 rpm and data is written in binary (1’s and 0’s) or (high and low) using magnetism as the basis for writing and reading data.
Data recovery is required when your laptop or PC hard drive has a critical failure or software errors make your drive unreadable.
Causes of Data loss
- Accidental deletion
- Factory restore accidentally
- Windows install gone wrong
- Bad sectors on the drive
- Damaged or failing heads
- Corrupt file system
- System format
- Removing drive before ejecting
- Power spikes or fluctuations
Types of data recovery
|Bad sectors on the drive||Faulty Logic Board|
|Damaged Master Boot Record||Damaged motor|
|Corrupt file system||Damaged Heads|
My hard drive is not working what should I do?
The first thing to do is switch off the computer as continuing to use the computer can potentially loose more data or damage the hard drive further. The first thing we will do is make an image of the drive on specialised equipment and only then will we start the recovery process.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do Not Try To Recover This Yourself !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You will only make the recovery process more difficult, and if the drive has problems with the heads, you could damage the platters of the disk making it impossible to recover anything from the drive.
We will make a binary copy of your hard disk to a new disk before attempting any data recovery, this reduces the risk of further data loss due to stressing the drive that is already failing. We have specialised equipment to carry out the imaging of your damaged drive which gives us a status report on the current condition of the hard drive.
We can also do board level repairs to the electronic circuit boards that are attached to your drive, we have the tools to swap Rom chips when replacing a circuit board or even replace diodes where required.
