Data recovery generally falls into one of three categories

If you are experiencing any of the following please contact us immediately to increase your chances of recovering your data.

1. Lost or deleted data

If tackled soon enough lost or deleted data can normally be easily recovered. However, the process has to be started as soon as possible to avoid the data being overwritten or lost due to retention times. The longer you leave the recovery process the less likely they can be restored. In most circumstances, this is a reasonably quick and cheap process.

When data is accidentally deleted it is normally still present on the drive, even a standard disk format does not destroy your data and most, if not all, your data may be recoverable. Most importantly, at this stage is to do nothing more on your system, any further work on the drive could potentially overwrite the lost data destroying them forever. Shut down your computer and let us handle the data recovery before any more damage occurs.

2. Corrupt Operating system

A non-functioning computer with either lost operating partitions or corrupt drives is again, under normal circumstances, easy to recover from. Do not try to start your system or try and restore the partition before we have a chance to look at the drive and hopefully backup your data.

2. Damaged hardware

Damaged hardware provides a much tougher challenge and can be very costly. it is crucial to cease usage of the damaged drive as any further usage will likely cause further damage and limit the chances of recovery options and increase costs.
