A competent company with passionate experts who bend backwards to help people. I had a terrible experience with Fields Data Recovery who were misleading, negligent and took a substantial amount of money from me (that I'm still trying to get back) despite knowing that my MacBook hard drive was unsalvageable. I got a second opinion and came across Andy from R3 Data Recovery who were enlightened me on how many people Fields Data Recovery to this to. They take your money and make no effort to do any work or make any contact with you. Andy at R3 Data Recovery conducted a review of Fields R&D Technical report issued by Fields Head of R&D and the communications with Fields Data Recovery Head of European Sales. Andy has confirmed with me that there has either been a very serious mistake in the ISO 9001 / 27001 processing of your case by Fields Associates or a deliberate and designed deception to take money under false pretence. Again, this has happened to a lot of people. Andy is assisting with the refund and has been in communication with the Directors of Fields Associates and the local MP for Bridgend Dr Jamie Wallis who is the owner of Fields and one of the past experts in Fields Data Recovery still showing on the website. Disclaimer: I have not been asked to leave this review. R3 Data Recovery have been so helpful in trying to me after this ordeal. I would really recommend them.


VMWare Virtual Machine Data & Disaster Recovery

Damaged virtual server repair service

Expert Data Recovery Services For VMWare Virtual Machines and Virtual Systems

Businesses often opt for virtualization because it is the best solution for their needs. If you rely on VMWare software, you know that this type of architecture offers more flexibility, power and scalability.

An immediate response is needed if there is a risk of data loss on a VMWare system. Engineers who have a solid understanding of VMFS structures and who are familiar with VMWare ESX servers or with other infrastructures should work on your virtual machine.

Engineers will also need to access the SAN or RAID device where the file system is located. In a lot of cases, a number of servers are offline due to a data loss that affects the whole file system. This is why a quick turnaround is very important when it comes to VMWare data recovery.

R3 offers VMWare data recovery services that always keep your files safe. We offer quick turnarounds and have one of the highest success rates in the industry. We offer onsite and remote services to recover data as quickly as possible.

R3 database and file recovery services

A Comprehensive File System Solution

At R3, we can offer data recovery solutions for different types of VMFS systems, including 1.x flat file systems, 2.x, 3.x, 4.x vSphere and 5.x.

Our goal is to repair the entire file system if it is possible to do so. If this is not an option, we can copy all your folders, including your configuration files and VMDK. These copies will be placed on a local EXT3, NTFS, XFS or EXT4 formatted device so that we can move on with the recovery process and re-integrate your system as quickly as possible.

Time Critical Data Recovery

If a fast turnaround is critical, you should consider using our onsite data recovery service. Our engineers can visit your location to perform data recovery services. This will allow for a much faster reintegration of your systems.

R3 engineers will bring their own portable equipment and will use all the necessary precautions to keep your media safe during the data recovery process. If our engineers find that onsite data recovery is not possible, the drives that are functioning will be cloned and the failed drives will be sent to our world class data recovery lab. We will be able to use the images taken onsite to recover your entire RAID or SAN system.

Our engineers can get to your location in a matter of hours, which means your data could be recovered within the same day.

We provide industry-leading turnaround times which give you the confidence that's necessary to develop a solid, effective recovery plan. Our skilled professionals will be able to reliably recover data on your virtual machine.
