Laptop and Notebook Data Recovery

Professional Data Recovery Services For Laptop and Notebook Computers

Laptop and Notebook Recovery Services by R3

Laptops are a very convenient way of making powerful computing portable. Tablets are all good and well for browsing and social media but laptops are going to be around for some time yet. Some users still favour desktop computing but laptops have come a long way of catching up with the power of desktop computing.

Laptop manufacturers such as DELL, Sony, Apple, HP, Fujitsu, Asus, Acer and many others all offer laptops that users like for their own reasons but one thing all laptops have in common in the ease at which they can be dropped while in use or in transit. It isn't often R3 get in desktops/servers etc. that have been dropped but dropped laptops we see very frequently. The physical impact can cause not only damage to the exterior of the laptop but components within the laptop can break as a result, in particular the hard disk drive (HDD).

If your laptop's hard disk does break as a result of a drop or impact there are some critical rules to follow:

  • DO NOT repeatedly apply power to the hard drive. In many instances, a physical impact that causes a hard disk to fail will result in a mechanical failure, if you continue to apply power to a mechanically failed disk the result is inevitable, a head crash will occur and the platter(s) will sustain damage which as best will cause problems and make the recovery of your lost data more problematic.

  • DO NOT open the disk. Some users think opening a disk that is clicking, making a grinding noise or other laboured noise is a good idea, it is however the worst things you can do. Please do not open a hard disk unless you are an experienced data recovery engineer.

While we appreciate some might not like the idea of having to pay for data recovery it is a very specialised task and it takes years to become skilled to a point where you are able to regain access to disks that have failed.

If you place any value whatsoever on the data the only thing you are doing by not seeking the help of a professional is endangering what you have lost. This is in no way scaremongering, true data recovery laboratories cost many tens or hundreds of thousands to create investing and R and D, specialist hardware and software, this is for good reason, most even those considering themselves highly experienced in IT only seldom if ever come across a data loss situation but what cannot be taught on a University course or a book is where to even start to try and regain access to lost data.

If you have a laptop hard disk that has failed we advise simply to put the disk in a safe place and think about the true value of the data, if it can be recreated less than the cost of a recovery great, if not you will need the help of a data recovery lab. Please feel free to contact us on 0800 999 3282 with your problem and we can talk you through the best course of action.

What Our Customers Say About Us

When my external backup drive failed I feared many years of documents were lost. Not only were the files recovered but presented back in their original folders so they could be easily reviewed and restored to my system. Sensitive documents were dealt with confidentially. Excellent timely service.
