USB memory sticks are a very convenient way of keeping your data close to you as you move from one place to another. Teachers/lecturers and students especially but anyone who moves from computer to computer need a way to keep their data with them. USB drives, memory sticks, pen drives (call them what you will), are a very convenient and easy way to keep your data with you while you move around.
Cloud storage is all good and well but USB sticks are just so easy to use. No installing of cloud storage apps, no waiting until the data syncs on a new PC you haven't used before, no logging into a web site... Plug and play - its just so convenient.
Simple though comes with its own dangers. USB devices are very much prone to failure that users are not advised of when they purchase them.
The various components on the devices are very robust but they have weak points:
Sometimes these devices will just stop working, this is normally caused by an electronic component failure.
In most cases the controller chip fails, of course the device will not be useable and may behave in the following way:
Physical damage is just that, it has been damaged by someone or something accidentally. It is also equally impossible to predict when the controller might fail but what isn't impossible is getting the data back, not for our engineers at R3.
If your device doesn't behave as it should contact our team of experts at 0800 999 3282. Our skilled professionals will be able to reliably recover data on your USB stick and provide industry-leading turnaround times which give you the confidence that's necessary to develop a solid, effective recovery plan.
I have witnessed R3 giving help over the phone to several people with their situations. Talking them through their data storage and recovery problems and spending many minutes attempting to fix potential clients problems over the phone without even charging for their time!
Even then, when it is not possible to fix it with general help via the phone they will then talk potential customers though the possible costs, procedures and outcomes with a best scenario and a worst scenario and several other possibilities too.
I don’t know of any other service that are as helpful and supportive of a clients needs - before they even have the caller as a client!
Beware of other poor substitutes, these guys are the best!
