Protected Flood damaged drives from further risk
The recent weather and flood damages have affected many areas over the last month, but one thing we don't expect is the hard drives in our computers to be recoverable, flood damaged drives are recoverable providing they are protected from further risk of damage and not dumped along with other biohazard goods.
Water ingress is generally through the pressure equalisation valve. Thankfully most drives have already stopped spinning when power is cut or the PCB shorts out.
It is important that any flood affected storage device not be powered up, even after drying off the PCB. Many will have water still inside, as some platter damage can be caused making the recovery more time absorbing.
The R3 team are currently assisting with over 50 other emergency cases this week ranging from SSD and Hard drives from PC's MacBooks, servers, NAS and industrial production equipment such as computer controlled CNC machines.
What our customers say about us
A 1TB hard drive failure with many valued photographs led me to R3. Very impressed with their calm professional approach, rapid courier collection and excellent ongoing email updates with full data recovery. Price? Well, what price memories? Highly recommended.
