Software-based data recovery

If you have had a problem with your computer or laptop then your very first port of call will more than likely be your local computer repair shop or IT professional. You may even have an IT department at your place of work or a friend that “knows about” computers.

If your computer or laptop has become slow to respond, will not boot up or has shown you the blue screen scenario, then your IT professional will probably tell you that your hard drive has crashed and will need to be replaced. But wait...what if you didn’t have a back up of all your data? It is at this point that the term data recovery gets mentioned.

If your hard drive has minor issues and is still accessible, then chances are, your computer repair professional will be able to use a decent data recovery software program and reunite you with your data. But what if they are unable to recover your data for you? If your hard drive is completely dead or even worse, clicking badly then you’re going to need more expert assistance.

Expert data recovery service

This is where your data recovery specialist comes into their own.  Specialising in recovering data from hard drives which have failed through many causes, they can often recover data from hard drives which computer repair shops cannot recover data from in-house and would otherwise be destined for the crush machine. Professional, highly specialist tools and equipment, combined with a knowledge of how hard drives work and more importantly, how to correct them when they fail, puts a data recovery company in the very best possible position to retrieve your lost information.

Working with a specialist team to recover your data can often save you time and money, as experience can bring us straight to the problem, meaning less time trying lots of different tests and recovery methods without success.
