Here at R3 Data Recovery we recover from all types of storage devices from USBs and hard drives to massive servers containing 10's to 100's of hard drives. But when our customers call us many of them ask the same question: "What are the chances of my data being recoverable?".
Now with this question there isn't a definite answer over the phone. The answer will only be found out once the device has arrived at our lab. The only thing we can do is to get you, the customer to give the best description as possible to one of our sales members so that can give you some sort of idea of the failure.
Also, we strongly recommend that once the drive has failed you do not do anything with it. Constantly powering it on and off can cause serious damage inside making the situation much worse and making the data harder to get back. The less you do to try and get the drive working the better situation the drive will be in when it arrives with us.
Even with logical recoveries, even though the drive hasn't failed the less you do the better. Because the more you research and the more software you download creates a higher chance that the data you deleted has now been overwritten and is gone.
I have been wanting to write this review for some time as I’ve been nothing but grateful for the work Andy, Martin and all the team completed for me. I was in a real pickle when a (seemingly innocuous) spillage on my laptop threatened to destroy several month’s music production work, vital to my career.
Andy’s calm and reassuring manner, coupled with the timely and professional operation carried out by R3 meant that nearly all my data was retrievable (to within an hour or so of the spillage). The team kept me apprised all the way through the process; collected and returned the hard disk to me with a minimum of fuss and suggested alternative means of backing up (I backup on a daily basis now to external hard drives and the cloud!!)
A 10/10 service, I’ll definitely be recommending R3 to any colleagues similarly finding themselves up a certain creek without a certain paddle!!
