We can help recover lost documents and files
We all make mistakes and computer components do go wrong sometimes. It always seems to happen at the wrong time and when we don’t have a recent backup! We offer a variety of Data Recovery Services for Hard-Disk Drives, CD’s, DVD’s, Floppy Disks and USB Pen Drives.
Many people put blind faith in their computers, storing months or years of hard work, entire books, works of art, photos and other irreplaceable data without ever making a backup. Electronics has become more reliable in recent years but is still prone to failure. The Hard Drive – the main component for storing data on your computer is an electro-mechanical device that operates under extreme conditions. The question is not ‘will it fail?’ but rather ‘when will it fail?’. We’ve seen drives fail after 5 years and we’ve also seen them fail after 5 minutes!
Suspected loss of files
If you suspect your hard drive may have a fault or you have deleted an important file by accident, STOP!! The longer you keep operating the PC, the less likely a full recovery can be made. Also accidentally deleted files may be overwritten. Shut the PC down and seek help. Never try to boot from the affected drive or recover files to it.
Isn’t Data Recovery expensive?
Prices will vary according to what is wrong and what is involved in the recovery. Some jobs can cost very little but others may require specialist recovery (not performed locally) and may run into hundreds of pounds. What price can you put on those baby pictures from a year ago or that novel you’ve been working on for five?
