Dumfries Data Recovery

Data Recovery Dumfries: For over a decade and a half we have been helping customers up and down the country recover data that many had considered to be gone for good. Covering the widest spectrum of storage devices imaginable including some that their own manufacturers said were ‘unrecoverable’ we are the premier resource when it comes to data recovery. Call our engineers today on 0141 4040294 for further information and a no obligation quote and find out for yourself why we are the premier data recovery service in and around the Dumfries area.

Back in 2008 (what seems like an eternity ago in terms of computing and its advancements) Hewlett Packard purchased a company called LeftHand Networks who built and distributed ‘storage nodes’ which were large network or IP-based racks that contained a series of 300GB hard drives that when linked together created what was known as a ‘virtual cluster’. Our data recovery Dumfries engineers are experts when it comes to recovering data from these ‘virtual clusters’ not least because in the eyes of Hewlett Packard it is impossible to recover from them.

The two main culprits when it comes to being ‘unrecoverable’ as HP put it are the HP P4000 and HP P4500. Both act in the same way as a RAID 10 device would and allow for more than one ‘node’ to be attached thus increasing the size of the ‘virtual cluster’ greatly. And as our data recovery Dumfries team know they also behave in the same way as a RAID 10 setup when it comes to developing errors that involve the data on the individual hard drives.

We have developed a unique and bespoke RAID recovery procedure that allows for the retrieval of information from the HP P4000 and P4500 series alike and as such have become leaders in the field of data recovery for these systems. Although we cannot go into specifics here as to how we do it we can tell you that we use forensic IT methods as well as some very clever reverse engineering.

Dealing with mass storage as well as single drives

Our data recovery Dumfries team deal not only with multi-nationals and large organisations (like those that you see scrolling across the bottom of your screen) but we also deal with individuals who work for themselves or are home users with a hobby or an interest in collecting music etc. From the huge mainframes that take up entire rooms to the small desktop or laptop that sits in front of you at home, we recover data from them all (and everything in between).

Have you lost information because of a faulty storage device? Are you unable to access data that is visible on screen but your operating system says isn’t valid? If so call our data recovery Dumfries today on 0141 4040294 and a member of our team will talk you through our initial assessment, providing you with a preliminary diagnosis of the problem as well as a no obligation quote (an additional charge may be incurred if the hard drive has failed because of mechanical damage). We will explain the levels of data recovery we offer (dependent on your budget and timescale) as well as how our No Fix No Fee guarantee works for you. If you are happy for us to proceed we ask that you send your faulty drive to us here at our data recovery centre. You can do this using Royal Mail (we recommend registering or recording your package for your own peace of mind as we cannot be held responsible for lost storage devices), courier or in person if you are within the locale.

Our data recovery Dumfries team will make a final inspection of the device when it reaches us (we use an image to recover your data so only the hard drive or storage device in question is required) and we then report back to you with our findings. Our report comes by way of email and contains a detailed list of all the data that can be recovered (if the data exceeds our standard 30GBs allowance we will ask that you purchase an external storage device from our stocks). If you want us to complete the recovery we ask that payment be made by credit or debit card (company card or private card is fine) or BACS transfer. On receipt of payment we will recover the data to your new media and return it by next day courier. To find out more information on our levels of data recovery or for a no obligation quote call us today on 0141 4040294; lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm (as is our data recovery centre) except Christmas Day and Easter.
