During the normal operation of a hard drive the delicate read/write heads float over the rotating media. The arm that holds these heads is shaped almost like an aircraft wing to provide this lift. This novel approach reduces the overall mass of the delicate assembly allowing higher transfer speeds but also because there isn’t contact between the two components then the life span of the hard drive is greatly improved.
The media used in modern hard drives is a Cobalt Alloy which is very soft so is protected by a thin layer only microns in depth of a lubricant that acts as a buffer if the heads ever were forced onto the media due to misuse of the hard drive.
This condition is referred to as a head crash, and the media will survive a number of these during its normal working life. However if this crash is severe enough that a scratch is created then the debris will be picked up by the heads and dragged around causing more damage and so the condition can quickly escalate into a huge problem.
It is important that when a hard drive has been abused and the data contained is very important that the hard drive isn’t powered.
The constant power cycling in desperate attempts to access this data can reduce the chances of a successful recovery and in extreme case render the hard drive beyond repair.

I was delighted with the service from the R3 team. My daughter, a teacher, had two years of lessons on a USB stick. She had tried another company after being told the charge would be either around £100 or around £200. But when they received the stick, they said they needed to buy a widget to sort out the problem, and that the cost would be around £385. So I asked them to send me the stick back.
Then I went to the team at R3 Data Recovery. They gave me an order number over the phone and I then wrote a letter, enclosed it with the stick, and sent it off to Sheffield on a Friday. R3 told me it would be either £79 plus VAT or £149 plus VAT. They notified me on Monday that it had arrived, and on Tuesday morning that they sent me a list of files they could recover. The charge was £79 plus VAT. I paid by bank transfer, and later that day they uploaded all the files into a Dropbox folder. So a hearty recommendation from me.
What impressed me particularly, their success apart, is that if R3 had said it was £149 plus VAT I would have paid without questioning them. But they didn’t. Excellent service.
