Data Recovery Penicuik: Our engineers have over a decade and a half’s experience in recovering data from a variety of storage devices that fail for any number of reasons. Using a selection of bespoke recovery techniques we are able to reunite our customers with data that had been originally considered lost forever after the failure of their storage devices. Call us today on 0131 2020491 for more information and a no obligation quote.
With the advent of larger volume hard drives and other storage devices our data recovery Penicuik engineers are often called upon to help recover data from hard drives that have failed whilst storing many gigabytes or even terabytes of information important to the successful running of a small to medium sized business. We also help sole traders and individual home computer users who store lots of data that is precious to them such as photographs, videos and digital records of family get-togethers.
The temptation nowadays is to store as much information as a hard drive will allow given that they now accommodate the storage of hundreds of gigabytes or terabytes. Our data recovery Penicuik engineers have helped recover data from such drives that have failed because of problems with the mechanics of the drive such as the heads, the spindle, the actuator arms and the platters which can fail if they come into contact with each other.
The internal workings of a hard drive are such that they are not supposed to make contact with each other. Such components – especially the platters and heads – are kept apart by a thin cushion of air that (if interrupted) can cause the unnecessary contact of these components which results in the failure of the device. Our hard drive recovery allows for the retrieval of information from devices like these that have suffered mechanical and component failure.
My hard drive made a strange noise then stopped working!
Our data recovery Penicuik engineers are often told this when they are asked if they can help recover the data on a failed hard drive. It may be that the noise has been the precursor to a component failure such as the platters or heads that has made contact especially as their design is such that they should not. Cushions of air may have been disrupted or physical contact between the components may have been made because of the computer being moved too vigorously.
If you have suffered the loss of data after your hard drive has made some out-of-the-ordinary noises then it may be the hard drive has failed because of a component error. Call us today on 0131 2020491 and a member of our data recovery Penicuik team will talk you through our initial assessment and give you a diagnosis of the problem as well as provide you with a no obligation quote (this may include an additional charge if the drive has suffered mechanical damage). If you are happy as to why the drive has failed and our quote then we ask that you forward the drive to us here at our data recovery centre which you can do by post, courier, or in person if possible.
Upon receipt of the drive our data recovery Penicuik technicians will provide you with details of a final diagnosis and the data that can be recovered (if the data is larger than our standard 30GBs we ask that you purchase an external storage device from our stock). If you are happy and wish us to recover the data we ask that you make payment to us via credit card, debit card or BACS transfer and we can then recover your data to its new medium and return it to you via next day courier. For further information call us on 0131 2020491 today and speak to a member of our team. Our lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm as too is our data recovery centre.
