Aberdeenshire Data Recovery

Data Recovery Aberdeenshire: For the last 16 + years we have been providing Aberdeenshire with the premier data recovery service. We offer you the chance to be reunited with data that would otherwise be written off as no longer accessible or retrievable and do so across a wide spectrum of storage devices such as hard drives, external hard drives, RAID setups, virtual storage clusters, Network Assisted Storage (NAS) and USB-connectable storage. For more information and a no obligation quote call us today on 01224 452094.

If you are a frequent user of computers then you will know better than anyone that the most common loss of data is the failure of a hard drive. Our data recovery Aberdeenshire engineers are asked on an almost daily basis to help customers just like you to recover data from hard drives that have failed and have done so with little or no warning; leaving you the customer with no means of securing an accurate backup before the system failed.

As with many other data recovery professionals our data recovery Aberdeenshire engineers suggest making regular backups of your data just in case the worst happens but sometimes the worst can happen in between making backups and when it does happen it is too late. In between last week’s backup and this week’s your hard drive may fail after you have carried out an important month end leaving you unable to access those all important financial reports. It isn’t that we are trying to frighten you; we are simply stating the facts – hard drive failures happen when you least expect them just as accidents do.

And speaking of accidents, our data recovery Aberdeenshire team are only too aware of the accidents that can occur that can leave you unable to access a hard drive or other storage device. Dropping a computer whilst moving it, moving a computer whilst it is switched on, spilling liquid into the workings, all of these can lead to storage device failures and during the course of a year our team are called upon many times (carrying out thousands of successful recoveries) to help recover data from hard drives that have suffered just such fates. Our hard drive recovery service not only allows for accidents such as these but common failures such as firmware, spindles, and arm actuators and other components.

I moved the computer while it was switched on now I can’t access my hard drive

One of the best analogies our data recovery Aberdeenshire technical staff use is that of an old fashioned vinyl LP. Imagine the damage caused by moving the turntable while the record is playing; the stylus will slide across the vinyl, scraping it and leaving it so that at best it jumps and at worst is no longer playable. The same can happen (and does happen) with hard drives and can happen with even the slightest movement. You may have moved your computer on your desk at work without harm but over time carrying out this procedure will increase the risk of the heads and platters becoming damaged (these two components are separated by cushions of air so that they do not touch).

If you have moved your computer recently and suddenly found you are no longer able to access the data on the hard drive then it may be the case that these components – the heads and the platters – have come into contact with each other. If you think this might be the case or are simply unable to access that all important data, call us today on 01224 452094 and speak to one of our data recovery Aberdeenshire team. They will provide you with an initial diagnosis of the problem as well as a no obligation quote (this may include an additional charge if the drive has suffered mechanical damage) as well as details of the varying levels of recovery service we offer. We will also explain how our No Fix No Fee guarantee works. If you are happy with the diagnosis and the quote and would like us to recover your data we ask that you send the drive or storage device to us (the computer to which it is attached or installed is not necessary as we make an image of the hard drive) to our data recovery centre. You can send it by post (recorded or registered post is advisable), courier or deliver it in person if you are within the locale.

Once we have your drive (or other storage device) our data recovery Aberdeenshire technical team will make a definitive diagnosis of the problem and then report back with our findings. We do this via email and also include a detailed breakdown of all the data to be recovered (in its folders and directory trees etc.) If you are happy with this and would like us to proceed we ask that you make payment to us using BACS (or Fast Payment method now available with most bank accounts) or debit/credit card. (There may be an additional charge if the data volume is larger than the 30GBs we allow as part of all our recovery options and we need to provide you with an external storage device from our stocks). Once we have received payment we will recover your data to its new media and return it to you via next day courier. For further information or to book in a recovery call us today on 01224 452094 and a member of our team will be on hand to discuss your available options. Our telephone lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm as is our data recovery centre (except Christmas Day and Easter).
