Hard drives fail.  Operating systems break down.  Files are accidentally deleted.  Even when these things happen, it is important to know that in many cases your files are still saved and recoverable.  Even if your hard drive has physically stopped working, it is often possible to recover data.

If you find yourself in this situation, we can help.

  • Recovery of accidentally deleted files from computer hard drives, digital camera memory cards, usb memory sticks, etc.
  • Recovery of data from crashed hard drives or corrupt operating systems

In cases where the hard drive is no longer accessible, the drive will have to be sent to a specialist.  I have partnered with Kroll Ontrack, the leader in data recovery.  We can work with Kroll Ontrack on your behalf, or you can initiate a quote for service by clicking on the image below.

TIPS! - Follow these guidelines to reduce your risk of data loss.

  • Pay attention to the signs that your hard drive has failed or soon will.  If you experience any of these, stop using your computer until it can be diagnosed!
    • unusual noise or vibration
    • clicking sounds
    • unexpected shut-downs
  • If you have accidentally deleted or lost files, stop using the computer immediately.  Even if deleted, files can often be recovered.  However, the more you continue to use the computer after a file has been deleted, the less likely recovery becomes. 
  • Back-up your system regularly. 
  • Keep your Internet security software up to date, and run frequent scans.
  • Use a surge protector or battery back-up.
  • Be on the lookout for dust build-up around your computer equipment.
  • Use compressed air to frequently clean vents and fans of debris.
