Emergency Macbook Liquid Damage Recovery

Not too long ago we had a MacBook that was sent to us which was down as an emergency service, it was diagnosed as being an electronic failure due to the fact that it had liquid damage, possibly due to a drink being spilled on the device.

We noticed that upon further inspection, the logic board looked in a pretty poor state and it was no surprise to us when we found out that the logic board had failed.

But since we were asked to recover the data, we had to inspect the drive inside the Macbook. It was an SSD inside and luckily there was no damage to it, which meant it was entirely possible for us to recover the data quickly and effectively.

Once the engineers were about to clone the SSD, they realised that an encryption key is needed or else we wouldn't be able to progress too much with the job. Once we obtained the key, we could start the decryption process (it took a fairly long time to decrypt due to file system being slightly damaged).

When the drive was decrypted we could then start the data transfer process. The data was copied to a 1TB encrypted external drive so that we could generate a file listing for the customer to view. The percentage integrity of the data was almost 100% although there were a few corrupt files (videos) which we warned the customer about.

The customer then approved the recovery and said that it was OK that a few of the videos were corrupt as it wasn't part of the priority data that the customer requested.

The Macbook (with SSD inside) and 1TB encrypted external drive was sent back to the satisfied customer by a courier.

If you suffer corruption of your data; on SSD drives, RAID servers, portable hard drives, laptops or even USB memory sticks, we can help you to safely recover your lost files. Experienced and qualified staff with over 30 years of experience. Call us today at 0800 999 3282 to get started with your unique case.

What Our Customers Say About Us

The inevitable happened and a CF card failed when I was filming a wedding. 3 companies told me the card had not recorded any info and that the footage was not recoverable. Someone mentioned R3 Data and I thought I’d give it one last attempt.

The service was second to none. They sent a courier to collect my card (the other companies had never physically seen my card) they kept me up to date with the process throughout and managed to return all the corrupt files intact. To be able to tell the bride all has been saved was a feeling I’ll never forget and I’ll happily use R3 again (thought hopefully not to soon).
