Head crash: notice the visible damage on the surface of the media
We are fully equipped to handle data recovery under any data loss scenario, business or personal. Our rate of success is very high. It is well known however that some data loss situations are not recoverable, especially in the event of a major head crash. (photo at right)
While our methods of data recovery are some of the best in the market and proven to be highly effective, there will always be scenarios where data cannot be recovered. Any data recovery company claiming to have a success rate of 90% or better is not being truthful. The "head crash" drive in the photo is a prime example of a drive that cannot be recovered due to the extensive damage to the media. Without question, there is no data left to recover.
In order to determine the probability and cost of a recovery situation, it is important for us to evaluate the failed hard drive or media. We will perform a non-destructive diagnosis which will allow us to provide you with a cost analyses and possible listing of good files that can be recovered.
What to do if you experience data loss...
1) Turn the computer/disk drive off immediately! Do not power it back on!
2) Do not try cheep or free “do it yourself” data recovery utilities. Attempting to recover data yourself can make a bad situation even worse. The disk or disk drive is most likely experiencing some type of physical failure. The longer it runs, more damage will likely occur.
3) Do not take it to a computer dealer or local service center. Despite claims of data recovery services, they don't have much more capability than “do it yourself” data recovery software utilities. It has been our experience at times to have a client loose everything due to the efforts of someone who is not qualified and does not have the facility / equipment required to perform such services professionally. Lost data has a higher chance of recovery if it is sent in for professional data recovery services to begin with.

4) Do not physically try to disassemble or open a hard disk drive. This can destroy all data beyond recovery. This must be done in a controlled static safe, clean-room environment.
