As a data recovery lab handling hundreds of recoveries of all types of storage (data stored on VM, VHDD, SSD, HDD, Memory sticks and Servers, every month there is a repeating theme to the enquiries, “my backup has failed we need data recovery”.
The problem with any backup is how often do we check it is a full backup and that it will restore in a timely manner ?
Sometimes drives come in and the customer says “this is my backup drive” when really they mean it is extra storage.
In the main for most businesses they do have a backup but often it is quicker to use a data recovery company. In the example below when time is critical to the running of a business and the cloud backup has failed - R3 Data Recovery were found and provided the solution.
“Our main shared hard drive had stopped working due to contractors working in our office. We could not access any of our data which brought our business to a stand still. We thought we had been backing the hard drive up to a cloud but found out it hadn’t been done for months! We took the hard drive to two computer specialists who both could not help us. We contacted R3 data recovery at 3.00 p.m. on a Friday and we received excellent service from Andrew. Within an hour a vehicle came to our office and collected the hard drive, 24 hours later we had our data back. If we never got the data back it would have cost us a four figure amount to rebuild the systems. We can recommend R3 Data Recovery”

OMG I don't even know where to start! I lost all the pictures on my SD card as the card wouldn't mount and these guys were brilliant. Not only did they respond straight away to my enquiry (10:20 pm on a Friday night) they had someone at my house to collect the card at 10am the next day with a text message waiting for me at 14:00 that same day telling me that they had managed to recover all the data and that I would be able to download it from them that very night!
No hidden costs, super professional and they kept me in the loop the whole time. Thank you so much guys, I will be recommending you to everyone and anyone who needs help with their technology.
