Hard drives can fail for numerous reasons: electrical problems, unintentional poor handling, mechanical deterioration, read/write head errors, platter degradation, stuck motors, common human errors, file structure corruption, etc. While the best defense against data loss is an active backup system, let's face it, most people rarely back up their data.
We've successfully recovered countless seemingly "hopeless" cases: hard drives severely damaged by flood and fire, laptops that fell down stairs, and external drives run over by cars. We have recovered data from all of these worst case scenarios. If we cannot recover your data, then the failure is objectively beyond repair.
Physical failures occur when a drive itself is mechanically or electrically damaged. Data recovery from physically damaged hard drives may involve modifying or replacing damaged components, which we do using specialized hardware and software tools. ReStoring Data performs all recoveries using the industry's most cutting-edge proprietary equipment in our fully equipped data recovery laboratory. If a physically damaged hard drive needs to be opened, we will operate on it in a certified Class-100 clean room environment. This dust-free environment ensures there are no contaminants that might cause permanent physical destruction of your data during recovery.
Logical failure occur when a drive is harmed by viruses, malware, formatting problems, file structure corruption, or has had files deleted from it. In these situations, the drive itself is not physically hurt or failed, but the digital data on the drive has been damaged logically. Unless determined that the data has been partially or fully overwritten, our expert technicians will utilize the newest and most innovative specialized proprietary software and hardware solutions to securely and safely retrieve your important data.
Our team of expert recovery technicians has years of experience recovering data from:
- All types of physical hard drive failures
