The story of East Anglian Data Recovery

What makes EADR different to other data recovery specialists? Read about how we started out and our company ethos. (7 May 2015)

The Journey Neon Sign

Why specialise in data recovery?

We are a dedicated, privately owned specialist data recovery company which commenced trading back in 2010. After numerous years in the IT industry, the directors recognised there was a need for affordable specialist data recovery, done the RIGHT way. Too many clients were losing out on recovering their data not only due to both cost implications, but also because computer repair professionals did not know which expert to recommend to ensure the best data recovery experience.

Our aim has never been to cut corners or be the cheapest, but to provide a premium data recovery service to both home users and business clients who are looking for the best chance of recovering their valued data. Using our combined extensive experience of repairing and maintaining computers and first class customer service, we have invested heavily in industry-leading tooling and the correct facilities, and EADR was "born" in June 2010.

We began our journey as most businesses do - working on a local basis, offering a specialist data recovery service to clients in the Norwich, Norfolk and East Anglia region. However, we very quickly grew beyond our own region and now boast an extensive customer base which reaches all over the UK and into Europe.

In 2011 we built our own workshop, increasing our working capacity by four-fold to enable us to work more efficiently. However, within a year we had already outgrown it, and in early 2013 we took on our first business premises in Attleborough, Norfolk.

Specialist clean chamber facilities

The move to commercial premises enabled us to continue our growth, but after  9 years we eventually outgrew that too. We moved to our current (and only) location in Dereham, Norfolk, in March 2022. 

The bulk of our work is on computer hard drives, both desktop and Laptop. We have invested very heavily in specialist tooling and equipment to enable us to work with the drives at service area level, meaning that we can access firmware modules and gain access to previously inaccessible drives. We also have Class 100 Clean Chamber facilities, allowing us to repair hard drives at a hardware level; a large percentage of our work is mechanically failed drives requiring head stack replacements, which many customers send in to us stating "we are their only hope"!

Our tooling range extends to RAID Arrays throughout all levels, including home, NAS (Network Attached Storage) and SOHO Mini Servers, as well as a dedicated "Flash" data recovery area, meaning we can work with all USB and SSD devices.

At EADR we are a bit old school and still believe the best way of helping clients is to go beyond a "tick box exercise" and talk to them in person. On a daily basis we are dealing with enquiries from personal and business customers who have suffered some form of data loss, and are looking for advice at retrieving their valued information. Because of our preference to provide a tailored and individual service, we  don't automate responses. We are always happy to help and offer our assistance and advice, without obligation.

If we can assist you at all, please feel free to message us or to call on 01953 667977 for a personal discussion.
