This is a very good question, it can seem obvious, but it is not always the case.
A few days ago we received a portable Samsung drive that had already been to another data recovery company.
They had managed to recover a few GB of data only, out of an amount roughly the size of 1 TB.
The customer was in a state of desperation, mainly because the drive stored the final experiments and results of her important research work, which she had been collating for numerous years.
After some days of very intensive work, we were very glad that we were finally able to put a great smile on her face again as a result of recovering her important data.
We are not writing this article to emphasize our tech skills (well, not only for that) but to make a reflection on how data recovery companies satisfy their mission of doing what is required of them by the customer and simultaneously allowing their customers life’s to continue in a positive way and not in a state of desperation or panic as a consequence of their lost data.
Quite often we see that some of our competitors could have had the necessary skills to do the job too but they simply gave up, ultimately from their perspective it required too much effort, spare parts and, above all, time for the quoted price.
Which raises the question, how can you help people in such situations, unless by charging them with incredible prices?
If you care about your customers, you will consider them as people, not numbers. We talked to the customer, spent time with her, understanding how the data was arranged and what was the purpose of each file type; we managed to build a list of most important and vital files for her, choosing between the different copies and types. As result, we were able to cut off a huge amount of unnecessary sectors and focus our efforts on cloning the important data chains only.
So to conclude, tech skills are not only the essential tool in data recovery, by establishing a good interaction with the customer we managed to do the job and give some serenity to another happy R3 Customer.

R3 Data Recovery is an excellent emergency data recovery service that I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone.
From the initial telephone conversation I had with them I was extremely impressed by their implicit understanding and sensitive handling of my stress and panic, believing I had possibly lost 10 year’s worth of invaluable documentation, imagery and archiving from my highly respected research held on a USB stick.
They worked efficiently and conscientiously to retrieve data urgently for me and made provision for me to receive it and all in time for an important PP presentation, the success of which was crucial to my career.
They were mindful in keeping me informed of their progress with the recovery process, hence putting my mind at rest, and they accomplished this all within a working day/evening. They worked hard and consistently until the job was completed successfully and made themselves available for me to talk to during out-of-work hours. They transferred all the remaining data that was not urgent onto a USB stick and returned it in the post to me, thus very satisfactorily completing an exemplary and outstanding service.
