Craven Data Recovery

Data Recovery Craven: For over a decade and a half our data recovery engineers have been helping business and domestic computer users in the Craven and North Yorkshire to recover that all important data that has been reported lost or inaccessible by their faulty storage device. From hard drives to external hard disk drives, USB memory sticks to memory cards, our engineers are on hand today and can be contacted at 0113 3223083 if you need help retrieving your data. Call us for a no obligation quote and an initial appraisal of the situation.

How does a hard drive work? The inside of a hard drive consists of a series of moving components (unless the drive is a newer solid state model) that work in tandem to produce the ability to access and store your data as the platters, read/write heads, actuator arm and shaft, and other components move inside a very small area. Our data recovery Craven technicians have been called upon many thousands of times in the last 16 years to help recover data from drives where one or more of these components have failed.

When it come to how the data is stored the hard drive can be broken down into tracks, sectors and cylinders and the data is stored across these in a similar fashion to how music is stored on a compact disc or on an old-fashioned vinyl LP. Our data recovery Craven engineers liken the loss of data because of problems with the actuator arm and platters as being similar to scratching the stylus of a record player across the vinyl LP on the turntable. The album may play in some parts but the first track – the boot sector if you will – may well be damaged which will render the drive useless.

As we have already mentioned the more model solid state drives are without moving parts but are just as likely to fall foul of problems because of the transistors and capacitors and electronic chips inside them as well as problems that arise from corrupt or out-of-date firmware. We offer the premier hard drive recovery service in and around Craven and North Yorkshire that allows for the recovery of data from such damaged hard drives and ensures that our clients are able to pick up where they left off knowing that the data we have recovered was the data they lost access to.

Employing forensic computing and reverse engineering as well as years of experience from our engineers

Whether it be a hard drive with moving components or a solid state drive without them our data recovery Craven engineers are able to recover the data from said drive and return it to you on a new media thus enabling you to carry on with the job of running a business or producing coursework etc for a degree. We have developed our own methods of data recovery and employ these along with the latest in data recovery technology to maximise the success rate for data retrieval.

Has your hard drive given up the proverbial ghost? Are you no longer able to access the data that you had access to last time you switched the computer on? Are you faced with an error message or just simply a blank screen? Whatever the situation our data recovery Craven engineers are here to help and by calling them today on 0113 3223083 you can ensure that the process of performing a successful data recovery is started sooner rather than later. A member of our team will take you through the initial assessment process and provide you with a preliminary diagnosis of the problem as well as a no obligation quote (this may include an additional charge levied if the drive has suffered a mechanical failure). If you are happy we can recover your data and wish us to do so then we would ask that you send the affected drive (just the drive as we produce an image of the data to be recovered from this) to our data recovery Craven and North Yorkshire centre. You have the option to send the drive to us by post (we heartily recommend registering or recording your package if you choose this method as we cannot be held responsible for the loss of your storage device en route to us), courier or in person if you live or work nearby.

Having received the storage device into our data recovery centre our data recovery Craven engineers will make a firm diagnosis of the problem and return to you an email with our findings (including a list of all the data we can successfully recover). If the data we can recover for you is in excess of our the 30GBs allowance we offer with all of our data recovery options we ask that you purchase an external storage device from our stocks and our engineers will help choose the right one for you. If you are happy to continue we ask that you make payment to us by BACS transfer or credit/debit card. On receiving payment we will recover the data to its new media or storage device and will return it by next day courier service (the cost of which is included in our no obligation quote). For more information and a no obligation quote call our team today between the hours of 9am and 6pm (our lines and data recovery are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm) on 0113 3223083.
