What happens after the data is recovered?

Once data has been recovered there are several ways in which we can get the data back to our customers depending on individual requirements such as time and cost.

The fastest way of transferring data is for it to be sent over the internet such as email, data transfer via ftp or a file transfer service such as WeTransfer. This method of sending data is efficient for low volumes of data if time is critical but not where large volumes of data are needed quickly as data can be transferred to physical hard disks much faster than the amount of time it would take to transfer over the internet.

In most cases copying recovered data to a new hard disk and then sent back using a tracked courier service is suitable but R3 offers same day return of data to allow the fastest return of data to our customers tailored to their individual needs.

Priority data

At R3 it's important to know what the priority data is, this is so that we know what to target first so that it reduces the strain of the drive when it is cloning. Sometimes when a drive is failing it is better to target the priority files as the drive could be minutes away from failing.

Priority data is also important when it comes to logical recoveries (deleted data). As we are able to search deleted data for specific file/folder names.

If you have deleted your data or accidently formatted your storage device, get in contact with the professionals here at R3, our team will be able to give you a free over the phone assessment and quote.

Your data in good hands

Whatever the nature of the data loss, regardless of manufacturer or type of storage device, R3 Data Recovery can offer a full diagnosis, a swift solution and an after care package to get your business operation back online as quickly as possible.

What our customers say about us

I spent some time working out who to send my hd to. Lots of bad reviews for other sites. Was so glad I used R3. Didn't try to push me and get a sale. Kept me up to date with the recovery and recovered 100% of my data. Sent my hd on Tuesday and got it back on an external drive the following Tuesday. Five star service......back up your data though :)

Anonymus

Andy quick response and recovery of the data and the out of hours service,was excellent. He also gave us assistance over the phone when accessing the recovered data on the new external drive. I would have no hesitation in recommending his data recovery services.

Dave Worcester

My laptop hard disc died on Tuesday morning. Having never really bothered with backing up (I know) I went into a flat panic as my small business data and personal stuff was all lost. Along with a more computer literate friend we found R3 Data Recovery via google and the reviews helped me decide to give them a try. Well I am really glad that I did.

I delivered the faulty disc personally on Wednesday afternoon and having paid for the emergency service my recovered data was ready for me to pick up on Thursday morning. 100% recovery of all data, business related and photos and other personal stuff that could have been lost forever. Will my point of contact was great explaining the process and costs involved. I cannot recommend highly enough. I have now restored all my data and set up a back regime. Thank you R3 Data Recovery
