Data Recovery Erskine: From individual home computer users to mainframes and RAID arrays used by multiple staff in larger organisations, government departments and multi-nationals, our engineers have been recovering the data lost or inaccessible on their storage devices for over 16 years and in that time have carried out many thousands of successful recoveries. We have ensured that both individuals and businesses alike have been able to pick up where they left off using the data retrieved from faulty storage devices. Call us today on 0141 4040294 for more information and a no obligation quote.
Ask any computer user what they fear the most when it comes to using their computer and they will tell you that they fear losing their data because of a faulty hard drive and this will most likely be followed by losing the data because of a virus creeping into their system. Our data recovery Erskine engineers have helped many users to get their data back when they have considered all hope to be lost after the failure of a hard drive, external hard drive or other attachable storage device.
You will note that we said the loss of data because of a failed hard drive before the contracting of a computer virus? The reason for this is that our data recovery Erskine engineers are more often asked to help recover data from broken or inaccessible drives because they cause problems that are not always flagged up where viruses are normally identified if you have a working anti-virus checker on your system.
Hard drives fail and there is no other way of putting it. They fail and do so frequently without any warning at all. Some users may be fortunate enough (if you wish to see if like that) to get some kind of warning such as an audible grating sound as components collide with each other internally or because their computer reboots repeatedly, freezes or fails to allow access to previously saved data. We offer a variety of hard drive recovery methods that can help when these problems arise.
I’m faced with a blank screen and a flashing cursor top left!
If you have switched your computer on after having shut it down properly last time you used it and are faced with the aforementioned symptom then the likelihood is that your hard drive has failed – or is in the process of failing. Our data recovery Erskine engineers have been asked by many computer users to diagnose this problem and it is commonly the first signs that the boot sector on the drive has been damaged physically or sustained some kind of corruption.
Has your computer failed to boot correctly? Are you presented with a BIOS screen that says no hard drive is present? If so we recommend you shut the computer down as soon as possible and ensure that it cannot be used (or tried to be used) by anyone else. Then contact our data recovery Erskine engineers on 0141 4040294. They will provide you with an initial assessment of the situation including a preliminary diagnosis as well as a no obligation quote (this may include an additional charge if the drive has been mechanically damaged). We will also explain how we can recover the data and how our No Fix No Fee policy works. If you would like us to recover the data we ask that you send the drive to our data recovery centre using Royal Mail, courier or in person if you can. As we work with images created from the itinerant drive we do not require the entire computer system to be sent to us.
Having received the drive in question our data recovery Erskine technicians will make a final diagnosis of the problem and forward you a breakdown of our findings by email. This email will contain a detailed listing of all the files that can be recovered and if you are happy that we can recover the data you need and wish us to continue we ask that you make payment to us via BACS or credit/debit card. (If the data to be recovered exceeds 30GBs in volume we ask that you purchase an external storage device from our stock; our engineer will discuss this with you). On receipt of payment we will recover your data to its new media and return it to you via next day courier. For further information on how we can reunite you with your data or to obtain a no obligation quote, call us now on 0141 4040294. Our telephone lines and data recovery centre are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm (Christmas Day and Easter excepted).
