Data Recovery on Hard Drives.
Knowing that something is wrong with your hard drive in the first place is usually not difficult. The frustration of losing important documents and information is enough to strike fear into the hearts of anyone who makes use of a computer on a regular basis. Some of the common errors to look for would be the operating system not found, disk errors, operating system missing errors, primary hard disk failure, error reading drive C, inaccessible boot device and secondary hard disk failure. Some physical failure symptoms to look out for would include a clicking sound, the drive not spinning and any scratching noises. If you are experiencing these problems then we can probably assist.

We will ensure that you are provided with an efficient and effective recovery solution.

Recovery Pricing

Pricing indicates what is finally payable (less the non-refundable deposit) . If we are not able to recover anything then your only cost will be the non-refundable deposit . If we have to source and or supply "donor" parts to achieve the recovery of your vital data then we will quote you and require payment for these "donor" parts up front .

If a hard disk drive cannot be detected with our advanced data recovery systems, the hard disk drive is categorized as a mechanical recovery. This type of recovery normally involves sourcing parts from an identical working "donor" hard disk drive. We have access to over 5000 hard disk drives however there are situations where a specific hard disk drive is not available. We then try to source the hdd, once found a non-refundable deposit may be required. Once the recovery is complete the "patient" and the "donor" drives are unusable. This recovery type normally takes 3 - 5 days to complete .
