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.
THE REAL DEAL R3 Data Recovery are Geniuses! I am almost speechless with what an incredible job you have done for me.
As a videographer my data is my life, You saved 1.2TB of footage and all of my projects from a 2TB portable hard drive that I dropped. As soon as it hit the floor I felt sick. I chose the emergency recovery which was worth every penny. A super competitive quote upfront that did not change through the recovery. I had a new drive back in 3 days with 100% recovery.
Each step of the process I was informed with what had happened and data was safe. I cant thank you enough. I was so nervous and anxious about getting my data back but you guys are REAL pros! thank you thank you thank you! Crisis over!!!
To anyone feeling sick reading these reviews to make themselves feel better (trust me ive been there) watch R3’s video and know your data is in the safest place it can be with this lot.
Thank you xMillion!
