Data Recovery Diagnostic

Data Recovery Diagnostics

I work to provide a professional data recovery diagnostic after receiving your drive or media. The first step in recovering your data is a diagnostic. I have the expertise and diagnostic tools to quote a recovery accurately. Once the diagnostic is completed I inform the client with a detailed explanation and a quote for recovery. The first chance of recovery has the highest chance of success and often you might only get one chance at recovery.

Picture Recovery

Photo and Video Recovery

Photo and video recovery is my most requested service for home users. I can recover lost, deleted or formatted photos from a computer, digital camera, memory card, SD card, hard drive, cell phones, flash drives or other media.

My services include drives with bad sectors, PCB replacement, firmware issues, read/write heads replacements, and other hardware failures.

When your laptop, desktop PC, or server fails, you need fast help from a certified professional to regain access to your most important files. I perform Windows recovery on personal or business computers. After a data loss, and successful recovery I can help you get back on your feet, and set up a data backup solution.

Mac Recovery

Mac Recovery

I specialize in data recovery from logically and physically failed Apple Devices such as the MacBook, iMac, Mac Mini, and Mac Pro. Along with all other Apple devices. I offer hardware recoveries and have specialized software utilities for getting data back on macOS.

Physical Corruption

Physical Corruption

Physical corruption is serious business. In data recovery, a storage device is considered to have a physical corruption when any electronic or mechanical failure occurs, or media damage is present. These types of failures occur because of age, manufacturing defects, electrical components failing, dropping the device, extreme heat or cold, or water damage. Media damage is often the most server recovery and occurs when the hard disk platters have become damaged or corrupted.

Logical Corruption

Logical Corruption

Logical corruption, of software data recovery, occurs if the computer is unable to make sense of the data that is stored on the device. This is can be caused by the computer’s index system being damaged or corrupted, loss of a partition, virus or other means. Often the data is there, but the computer is unable to recognize it. Where logical corruption is the cause of the data loss, your chances of getting all the data back are extremely good.

External Hard Drives

External Hard Drives

When your files get deleted or lost from an external hard drive, I can help you recover them. I find that external hard drives are most prone to failure because they are portable. They are often transported in briefcases, bags, and backpacks and have very little protection against shock.

Dropped External Hard Drive

Dropped External Hard Drive

If your external hard drive has been dropped, is clicking, or is making other noises, or has fallen from a desk: Do not plug it in or turn it on. It’s worth engaging a professional to perform diagnostic and open your drive to confirm the status of its internal parts. If you hear a clicking or other noises, there is a good chance the internal components have been damaged by the force of the impact.

The first step to recovery a hard drive is knowing exactly the cause of the failure. The evaluation and data recovery process can begin after an accurate and detailed diagnosis. I offer recovery for Seagate, Western Digital, Hitachi (HGST), Samsung, Toshiba, Maxtor, Fujistu, and others.

SSD

SSD

Much of the optimism surrounding the reliability of SSDs revolves around the lack of moving parts, which removed any fear of wear and tear. Data loss still occurs on SSD drives and recovery from standard 2.5″ SSD’s or M.2 SSD’s is complex.

File Repair And Recovery

File Repair and Recovery

Accessing data is not always enough. Often times individual files are damaged or corrupted after a data loss and need to be repaired. This can happen due to a virus, user error, or software, or hardware failure. Often I get requests for repairing corrupted files and recovering files from databases, photos, videos, email, and Office documents.

Deleted Files

Deleted Files

Files can be accidentally or intentionally deleted, resulting in data loss. The data is often not destroyed, but the computer system now regards that data as no longer required. Deleted files can also be recovered if a drive or partition has been reformatted. As long as the deleted data has not been overwritten by new data, it can be found, rebuilt, and recovered.
