Data Recovery Calderdale: Windows-based PCs, laptops, Apple Macs, net books, Chromebooks, notebooks, RAID servers, mainframes, all of these are susceptible to problems with their hard drives and for the last 16+ years our data recovery engineers have been recovering the data from them and reuniting their users with it. With the most up-to-date recovery technology and our own bespoke data recovery techniques we offer the premier hard drive recovery service in Calderdale and West Yorkshire. To find out more about how we can reunite you with your data call our team today on 01904 238441.
Most computer users, unless charged with the job of doing so, don’t consider how the inside of a hard drive actually works and when the worst case scenario unfolds that a hard drive fails it is often the case that the drive itself is considered no longer able to bear the fruit of the data during a recovery process. Our data recovery Calderdale engineers are able to recover the data from failing (or failed) hard drives and can do so using an image of the data on the drive as opposed to the physical drive itself.
Essentially there are two types of hard drive; the hard drive with moving components inside and the solid state drive that does not contain moving parts but can still be prone to failure because of issues with firmware, the capacitors and the transistors that are used inside. Our data recovery Calderdale engineers are often called upon by our clients to help recover data from both kinds of hard drive as well as a plethora of other storage devices such as USB memory sticks and memory cards.
A hard drive with moving components is more likely however to expire before you would hope and our hard drive recovery service is second to none when it comes to dealing with the recovery of data from such devices. Platters, head arms, actuator arms and shafts, read/write heads; all of these are susceptible to damage because they move and move many times a second – indeed our data recovery Calderdale and West Yorkshire engineers are called upon to help when these components fail simply because of general wear and tear to them.
My hard drive has failed and it isn’t that old
One of the problems that can arise with a hard drive as diagnosed by our data recovery Calderdale engineers is that there is no way of accurately predicting a life expectancy for the hard drive in your computer. Depending on the usage of the drive, the components that have gone to make it up, and other factors such as has the drive been involved in any kind or bump or collision, these things taken into consideration can dramatically reduce the lifespan of a hard drive which may lead to you requiring the services of a premier data recovery company such as ours long before it would be due.
Have you switched on your computer this morning only to find that the hard drive isn’t booting up? Is your data no longer visible or accessible? Have you found that your computer will not pass the BIOS screen? If the answer to these questions is a universal yes then your hard drive has failed and the result of continually trying to boot the system in this condition could be the complete loss of your data. Our data recovery Calderdale personnel recommend powering down your computer and contacting them immediately on 01904 238441. Our engineers are on hand to help you with any data recovery queries you might have as well as provide you with a no obligation quote for the recovery of your data (there may be an additional charge incurred if the drive has suffered mechanical damage). If you are happy with our initial assessment of the problem and our quote and would like us to recover the data we ask that you send the affected drive only to us here at our data recovery Calderdale and West Yorkshire centre. You can do this by post, courier or in person if you are local.
Having taken possession of the drive our data recovery Calderdale team will make a firm diagnosis of the problem and by email will send you a list of all the data that can be recovered safely (the data to be recovered will require the purchasing of an external storage device if in excess of 30GBs). If you are happy for us to continue with the recovery we ask that you make payment to us by credit or debit card or BACS transfer and upon receipt of payment we will recover your data to its new media or storage device and return it to you via next day courier. For more information on how we can recover your data and a no obligation quote, call us today on 01904 238441 – our data recovery centre is open 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday as are our telephone lines and our engineers are waiting for your call.
