If the memory inside your computer suffers a failure it is usually pretty straight forward to find and install a replacement, the same can apply to many other pieces of technology within your computer including graphics cards, sound cards and network cards. But when the hard drive develops a fault and needs to be replaced it can leave you with a problem especially if you have not been in a position to perform a backup beforehand. Our data recovery Livingston engineers can help retrieve vital information from said drive before it is lost forever.
Our data recovery Livingston engineers are asked regularly about what advice they can give when it comes to ensuring that data can be successfully recovered from an ailing hard drive and generally we would advise that if you suspect a fault is occurring with the drive, power down immediately and leave the computer switched off.
This may sound like something of an old wives’ tale but it can buy extra time when it comes to performing a hard drive recovery. Persistently restarting the computer in the hope that it will boot and allow you to access your data with a view to copying off the important stuff or making a backup is a sure fire way of degrading the remaining components in a failing hard drive.
I’ve powered down my machine, now what do I do?
If you have found that your hard drive is acting strangely, causing the computer to reboot or freeze or not allowing you access to data already saved on it, our data recovery Livingston engineers strongly advise powering down and ensuring that no one else can access the machine. As we have said, constantly trying to boot up a degenerating hard drive will only make matters worse and may reduce the chances of success when it comes to data recovery. We also heartily advise against trying to boot from a CD or DVD as this can sometimes cause an impromptu attempt at reformatting by the operating system.
Call us today on 0141 4040294 and speak to a member of our data recovery Livingston team. They will be able to give you a preliminary diagnosis of the fault as well as a no obligation quote (which may include an addition fee if the drive has been mechanically damaged). We will talk you through the options available to you as well as our No Fix No Fee policy and if you are happy for us to proceed we will require you to send the affected drive to us here at our data recovery centre. As we work from images of the drive in question we only require it and not the entire system. You can send it to us by post, courier or deliver it in person.
On receipt of the drive our data recovery Livingston technicians will make a final diagnosis of the problem and report back their findings. They will do this by email and will include a detailed analysis of all the data that can be recovered including files, folders and directories. (When the data to be recovered exceeds our 30GBs mandatory allowance we ask that you purchase an external storage device from our extensive stocks). If you are happy for us to recover the data to a new medium we ask that you make payment using a credit or debit card or BACS transfer. (We do not accept PayPal). Having received payment we will recover the data to its new media and return it to you using a next day courier. To find out more about how we can recover your data, obtain a no obligation quote or to book a storage device in for recovery, call us now on 0141 4040294; our data recovery centre is open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm and our engineers are on hand by telephone during these times as well.
