DIY Recovery Software

For all the technology lovers out there, there are several do-it-yourself (DIY) software options available to assist computer owners with hard disk and/or drive recovery. If someone’s personal computer (PC) crashes and/or experiences a system failure, it is important to know their information is protected and recovered by professionals who deal with these technological issues on a daily basis. While the DIY data recovery software available on the market may be comprehensive and provide users with step-by-step instructions, there is no guarantee the software will work or that it will not cause more harm than good to the damaged system. If there is vital information contained on the hard drive, it is best to leave the work to professional data recovery experts. Here are some of the reasons why it is important to leave data recovery to a professional.

Most data recovery service providers will assess the damaged system and provide a free estimate for the work entailed. That way, computer owners will have an idea of what to expect in terms of costs and time needed for the repair prior to having any work done. Moreover, a professional who deals with technology on a regular basis can tell whether the information can be recovered or if it is too compromised to be restored. Either way, users will have an informed opinion and reasonable expectation of what fate lies ahead for their compromised system.

Data recovery specialists have the software needed as well as the expertise to retrieve the data if possible. For instance, there is a data retrieval technique known as freezing a broken hard drive. However, these retrieval techniques require special equipment that professionals in the field have access to and knowledge about. Moreover, they also have special software that allows them advanced data recovery. Obviously, the free and/or paid software available to laypersons will pale in comparison and not be nearly as effective.

Professionals who work in data recovery have the experience needed to properly retrieve the information from the damaged system. They know how to diagnose the issues at hand and repair the compromised system while safeguarding the valuable data. If the system cannot be repaired or needs to be wiped, they know how to extract the data without further damaging the system and/or corrupting the data. A tech professional may know what to do with the system simply by looking at it or listening to the sounds that it makes.

Another benefit of working with a data recovery professional and/or service is that most offer a guarantee for their work. Additionally, users should not have to pay until after the work is completed. Therefore, if the work is faulty, data is not recovered, or the system is further compromised, computer owners will not have to pay for unsatisfactory service. Moreover, in many cases, information retrieval professionals will provide an extended warranty on their work for several weeks or months afterward in case other issues arise.

In the event a PC crashes or experiences a system failure, it is important that the information contained within is protected and recovered by professionals who deal with these tech issues on a regular basis. If the system has important information on the hard drive, it is best to leave the work to a professional data recovery service or individual. Professionals who work in this field have the experience, know-how, and access to tools that DIYers lack. Moreover, they have the knowledge needed to perform efficient and effective information retrieval without further compromising the damaged system.

What Our Customers Say About Us

I lost my data after inadvertently deleting my hard drive instead of my wife’s micro SD card in her phone. This was late at night after putting in some serious hours so I can only assume I was over tired and not really thinking. I right clicked the drive I thought was my wife’s card, it asked if I wanted to format it, I said ok and renamed it. A few seconds passed and I took out the SD card put it in the phone and the photos were still there. It took me a few moments to realise what I had done. When I went to the drive that held ten years work there was nothing there and it was renamed.

I went drip white I could hardly breathe… My wife came in asking what was wrong I explained that I had deleted the hard drive and lost everything not just photos, contracts, books I wrote, manuals for my company, all the history of everything I had ever done.

I quickly Googled data recovery whilst my wife found my friend Jack Daniels, there were a few that came up some saying they were 24 hours, when I rang no answer. I came across R3 Data Recovery and they said they were 24 hours, I rang and a real person answered my call. The chap I spoke to calmed me down, asked what I had done and what I had done after. I had the insight to not try and do anything myself as well as do nothing else to the drive. He told me they have great success and a good track record. I explained to him that right now I had lost anything so any data recovery would be better than none.

I have now had the drive back for a week or so and I have not found any of the work that is missing. I have lost my honeymoon pictures, however I may have these on disc somewhere. I estimate the data recovery is about 85%-90% successful. I know there are things missing but it has allowed me to carry on seamlessly without any major issues. I have as of yet to have really missed something. There was a bit of a glitch with the lead that when I connected the drive to the computer it told me the drive had malfunctioned. They organised a pick up the next day and within three days I had a new lead and the data was there. I think all in all even with the lead issue the returned my data within the ten days they said.

I cannot recommend them highly enough. Do not go for anyone else nor attempt anything yourself just call these guys and leave it with them, They kept me very informed and have done a cracking job I am amazed… they exceeded my expectations, thankfully.
