R3 Data Recovery Ltd operate one of the few high capacity data recovery labs in the UK. It is used by home users, students, businesses, corporations and any organization or individual who need help recovering their data.
The Security House lab is geared to achieve recovery of ever increasing capacity of drives at a fixed price. But it is also used as the last port of call for failed storage devices, many declared unrecoverable previously, including SSD Drives, RAID Arrays, Tape Backup and memory sticks.
Our team of engineers are long term industry researchers & leaders, developing new solutions for each generation of drives. The R3 team have the scale to cope with most situations including the sudden influx of dozens of drives from flood affected areas. Each failure is actually unique, the life of the drive, the type of data, environmental factors and user interference all influence the failure and chances of recovery.
Despite what you might find online and the reason for reading this page, in reality hard drives are not designed to fail and not all data recovery labs are the same!
Many drives that come in for recovery have seen a long and productive life, the hundreds of millions of drives in circulation in the UK generates a steady flow of work on a daily basis, in reality our growth is actually in the increasing adoption of SSD Drives which have their own problems and failure modes and higher failure rates per hundred drives.
It is not unusual for clients to come to us with hard disk drives 10 -15 years old, and recently we have had drives from the late 80’s and very early 90’s.
Equally we have drives come in for recovery which are literally hours into their first use, but it is why they need recovery that is key and can be a combination of the following:
The inevitable happened and a CF card failed when I was filming a wedding. 3 companies told me the card had not recorded any info and that the footage was not recoverable. Someone mentioned R3 Data and I thought I’d give it one last attempt.
The service was second to none. They sent a courier to collect my card (the other companies had never physically seen my card) they kept me up to date with the process throughout and managed to return all the corrupt files intact. To be able to tell the bride all has been saved was a feeling I’ll never forget and I’ll happily use R3 again (thought hopefully not to soon).
