Our workflow chart

If the data lost is valuable to you please consider the following:

Many companies advertise data recovery services, but only a small percentage have the necessary equipment, or expertise and few follow the correct procedures. How can you be certain who to turn to? One way is to request a valid Class 100 Clean Room certificate.

Submitting your hard disk drive to inexperienced companies, computer sales or repair outlets can cause your data / hard disk drive to become totally unrecoverable.

Never install or copy any data to a drive that you suspect may be failing, not even recovered data. This would drastically decrease the chances of finding data still absent after a soft recovery has been performed.

And lastly. Do not despair if IT consultants declare your drive to be unrecoverable. The probability are they do not want you to consider another company being superior than they are. We have recovered numerous drives that were affirmed to be unrecoverable.

In the situation where data is unrecoverable we have a No Recovery No Charge policy.
