As computer’s become more sophisticated in what some might say is an attempt to stay viable as tablets become prevalent, so too the ways in which storage devices can fail has increased. Our data recovery East Kilbride technicians are called upon daily to help customers recover data from hard drives, external drives, RAID servers, network assisted storage (NAS) and a variety of USB devices on which their important data has been essentially trapped because of hardware or software failures.
From the viewpoint of computer users the market is split between Macs and Windows-based PCs although a lot of manufacturing houses use setups based around LINUX and UNIX and bespoke systems such as the IBM/AS400. When it comes to Windows-based PCs however at the moment our data recovery East Kilbride engineers are being asked to help customers recover data from external hard drives and internal hard drives alike that are no longer visible and accessible by the newer versions of Windows such as Windows 8.1.
The advent of Windows 8.1 (and the soon to be announced Windows 9 – Autumn 2014) means that hard drives of a certain age or manufacturer are not recognised because of issues with firmware and licensing. For many users who have installed Windows 8.1 onto a new computer or bought one with it pre-installed they are finding that their external hard drives in particular are no longer accessible because of conflicts between the two. Our hard disk drive recovery allows for the retrieval of data that has been left essentially stranded on these disk types.
New Windows, old drive – no luck!
It is unfortunate for many users that they have only encountered the issues we have spoken of after they have installed Windows 8.1 which means that they are not in a position to access the data from the now defunct drive. It is fair to say that our data recovery East Kilbride engineers have noticed an upturn in the number of Windows-based PC users who have approached us regarding data recovery because of the incompatibility of Windows 8.1 and a great many hard drives.
Rather than consign you external hard disk drive to a corner of your home office or indeed throw it away and lose the data on it, call us on 0141 4040294 and speak to a member of our data recovery East Kilbride engineering team. We are proficient in recovering such data from inaccessible drives like these and can provide you with an initial diagnosis of the problem along with a no obligation quote (this may include an additional charge if the drive has suffered a mechanical failure). We will also explain our No Fix No Fee policy. If you are happy for us to continue with the recovery of your data we ask that you send the drive to us here at our data recovery centre. You can use Royal Mail (we suggest you register or record your item as we cannot accept responsibility if it does not arrive with us), courier or by hand if you live or work locally.
Having received your external hard drive our data recovery East Kilbride team will make a definitive diagnosis of the problem and report back with a list of all the files and folders that can be recovered. (If your data exceeds 30GBs we ask that you purchase an external storage device from us). If you are happy that we can recover your data we ask that you make payment to us via BACS or credit/debit card and we can then return your recovered data to you by next day courier. For further information on the levels of data recovery we provide depending on your budget and timescale, or for a no obligation quote, call us today on 0141 4040294. Our data recovery centre and telephone lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm (except Christmas Day and Easter).
