Data Recovery Johnstone: Whether you are a business user or a home computer user we can help recover the data from a defunct or malfunctioning hard drive, external hard disk drive, RAID server, mass storage device, network assisted storage (NAS) device or one of many other storage devices that are susceptible to malfunction or breakdown. For more information on how we can recover your data and how we can do it call us today on 0141 4040294 for an initial consultation and a no obligation quote.
Irrespective of what you use your computer for our data recovery Johnstone engineers know that the data you save to your hard drive or other storage device is important to you and important enough to want to save it should the worst happen and the device fail. We are often asked as to how long a hard drive should last for but the truth is it would be hard for anyone to give you a definitive answer to that question.
Hard drives and their storage counterparts have no listed expectancy because the truth is things go wrong, components malfunction because of old age or a bad build, and firmware and software conflicts and corruption can overrule even the sturdiest of components within a storage device; this is something our data recovery Johnstone team are more than well aware of.
Unlike televisions and monitors which have no moving parts and have some life expectancy (usually around 7 years) the hard drive in your computer could last 10 years, 15 years or simply fail after a few months of being installed in your computer. This is referred to rather macabrely as the ‘infant mortality’ and usually affects drives and other storage devices that have been put together using sub-standard components that should have been wheedled out at the quality control stage. Our hard drive recovery processes can help overcome these issues.
The hard drive I installed has failed but the warranty does not cover my data!
As detailed above sometimes hard drives fail because the components used to assemble them are not perfect and have missed detection at the quality control juncture. When this happens, as our data recovery Johnstone team know only too well, the chances of getting a replacement drive are great (if within the first year) but having the data recovered is not an option. Most manufacturers will cover for faulty components and will offer a repair or replace clause but no such clause for the recovery of your data.
If you have found yourself in this unenviable position and need to recover the data on said hard drive call us today on 0141 4040294 and speak to a member of our data recovery Johnstone team. They will talk you through the options available to you as well diagnose the problem for you in the interim period and provide you with a no obligation quote (an additional charge may be levied if the drive has failed because of a mechanical failure). If you are happy for us to recover the data for you we ask that you send it to our data recovery centre and this can be done either by post, courier or in person.
Once we have accepted your drive into our data recovery centre our data recovery Johnstone team will make a definitive diagnosis of the problem and report back to you via email. The email we send will have a list of all data recoverable attached to it (if the data is in excess of 30GBs we ask that you purchase an external storage device from our stocks) and if you are happy to proceed we ask that you make payment by either BACS or credit/debit card. Having received payment we will return your data on its new medium by next day courier. To find out more about how we can recover your data or to ask for a no obligation quote call our team today on 0141 4040294; our telephone lines and data recovery centre are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm (except Christmas and Easter).
