Upon my first contact with the team at R3, they were helpful, informative and professional. I couldn't have asked for a more efficient and secure service. Any question I asked was responded to promptly and with due care and attention. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending their service and thank them immensely for the recovery they provided for me. My documents were/are so incredibly important to me and R3 Data Recovery managed to get the vast majority back for me. The email they sent outlining all they had recovered allowed me to breathe a huge sigh of relief. Thank you so much!

Success Stories from the Victims After Being Scammed by Fields

Andy and his team literally SAVED MY (professional) LIFE!!!!!

I contacted Andy in a moment of complete despair, after receiving an expensive and detrimental service from an untrustworthy company (Fields Data Recovery UK).

Andy was extremely supportive and patient. I was out of control and lacking faith on anyone after my horrible experience. I bombed him with questions at any time, putting him on high pressure (unintentionally, sorry). Andy was always prompt to answer exhaustively to every concern I had. His engineer - Lucio - went with me through every single data I had in my drive, making a detailed ranking list of the priority data.

They worked late nights and over bank holiday weekend, on a highly damaged HHD. The work was extremely risky but eventually they managed to get to an almost full recovery of the whole HHD content (>500GB) and FULL RECOVERY OF ALL MY PRIORITY DATA!!!

I will be grateful to this amazing team for ever. Thank you thank you thank you!

I can only say that the service I received from R3 Data Recovery was fantastic. They have an extremely calm professional approach rather than the hard sell take your money artists which I will explain first.

I had previously sent my drive to another company Rapid Data Recovery who took my money up front, much more than they advertised, and after a week they declared it was impossibly to recover the data. They wanted to throw the disc out but I asked for it to returned which it was. The cover wasn't on the disc and there was a rattling sound coming from inside. I was not impressed.

I contacted Andy Butler at R3 Data Recovery who offered to have a look. When they received the disc they reported they opened it up and found a loose screw in the platens and a fingerprint inside. This was not the clean room hotel I had been promised and this just confirmed that Rapid Data Recovery were a bunch of scam artists. NEVER USE RAPID DATA RECOVERY ( If there is a reference website I would be happy for this advice to be posted on).

Back to R3 Data recovery. Their service was excellent. They kept me up to date. I was not in a hurry and they took their time to work on my disc when time was available. There task was more difficult because of the abuse the disc had received in the hands of the RDR bandits. Then I had the good news that they had managed to recover most of my family photos. What excellent news. The cost was more than I had expected but I felt my problem had been treated very professionally and I would recommend R3 DATA Recovery to anyone.

I hope this of assistance when choosing who to use.

My external hard drive was damaged and all the video data belonging to a wedding I was on it. I sent it to Fields Data Recovery and paid £299 plus vat for them to recover it. After a few weeks and offered to dispose of the disc themselves. I refused to allow them to do this and asked them to return it to me. I then found an advert for R3DATA and thought I would them, more in desperation than hope.

A few weeks later the news came back from them them that they had managed to recover all the data. I have since had my money returned from Fields after threatening legal action against them.

If you have a damaged external hard drive I would recommend that you contact R3Data first. They are not the cheapest but you will get excellent service from them.

The Fields Data Recovery Scam Partner Program

20 years ago a 4.3GB Samsung Spinpoint sold new at a cost of around £150, today thats the cost of a 6TB.

Data recovery was upto $5000 in the US and up to £3000 in the UK.

A data recovery company later sold for $20million and another built a $2million cleanroom.

In Europe the market became dominated by Government and EU Grant assisted websites.

The UK created "UK Digital Solutions" UKDS a "Google Partner".

£97 data recovery and 1000 Partners became the #fieldsdatarecoveryscam.

Pricing in the early 00s was sometimes calculated by megabyte with commissions of 20% to 30% for partners.

Today the cost of data recovery for a dropped 6 Terabyte HDD is cheaper than for a 4.3GB HDD in 2001.

If a Dropped 6TB HDD was able to be transported back to 2001 with failed heads and platter damage it would have been unrecoverable even by good engineers but their time cost if they could would have also been of a magnitude unimaginable today.

But with advent of Fields / Rapid / Data Phoenix the market changed in the "naughties", with charges of £100s for a fake 12 Page technical report - today a template email is sent.

One thing that has changed is companies like R3 Data Recovery have brought the success rates up and reduced the overall cost of data recovery whilst helping the victims of Fields and their Partners.

Sadly there is one problem that has not changed with the #fieldsdatarecoveryscam it is "sector domination by unrelenting growth" this was achieved and is maintained by the document spooling Fields Group / Fields Associates using profits made from those scammed, stolen from and defrauded to finance their business and political ambitions.

Dr Jamie Hamilton Wallis MP may have stepped down as Director and Dr Daryl Hamilton Wallis may have sold the Fields Group to Jamie but the same core group of staff operate in much the same way as they always have only now instead of 1000 partners they claim over 9000 partners.

The goal of Fields is to put their detractors out of business even using legal threats, the same approach is sometimes used against their clients who complain.

Consider why Fields have manipulated Trustpilot reviews, and deliberately damage drives after copying the data for their own "nefarious" use.

Fields Data Recovery have been forced to offer "refunds" in the US but the Missouri Attorney General's Office still failed to comprehend the scale of the scam which has operated for over a decade in the US underpinning Fields finances to dominate in the UK and Europe.

If a drive has been declared unrecoverable in the last month to 20 years by any UK, European or US Fields Group company, Fields Data Recovery Partner or a "Friend of Fields" company get a second opinion.

R3 is one of the few companies which has been able to defend itself against "sector domination" and continue to help many get their data, money and property back from Fields Associates and their Data Recovery Specialists.
