As data recovery South Lanarkshire experts we are very good at what we do and testament to this is provided by the many satisfied customers who have written to us and recommended us to their friends and colleagues (you can see some of these testimonials on our testimonials page). But there is one question that even we as experts have difficulty answering; how long should my hard drive last? We would equate that question to ‘How long is a piece of string?’
When we are asked this question our data recovery South Lanarkshire engineers often answer with ‘It depends!’ and it does depend. It’s not that we don’t know the answer, no one does. Hard drives last for as long as they last because of certain factors that have to be taken into consideration and these factors – component stability, firmware effectiveness, software compatibility, average general use – they are all answered with different results.
The best example we can give would be this; a hard drive will last longer if is allowed to have some ‘downtime’ and is not susceptible to things such as power surges, bumps or knocks, or switching off your computer without powering it down properly. But whatever the reason for it a hard drive can fail and the need for a hard drive recovery service can come to the fore if you have important data on that drive that needs to be retrieved.
Can’t I just reboot from a CD or DVD?
Depending on the reason for your hard drive’s failure there are a variety of possible solutions but if overall you are unable to restart your computer we suggest leaving it switched off and out of the way of others who might try to restart it for you. Our data recovery South Lanarkshire engineers would not recommend trying to restart the computer using a bootable CD or DVD as this will invariably lead to the operating system trying to reformat the hard drive which could have even disastrous results.
If your hard drive has failed and you need to recover important data from it call us today on 0141 4040294 and speak to a member of our data recovery South Lanarkshire team who will provide you with an initial diagnosis of the issue as well as a no obligation quote (this may include an additional fee if the drive has suffered mechanical damage). We will also explain your options regarding the levels of data recovery available which are dependent on your budget and how quickly you need to be reunited with your data. If you are happy for us to continue with the recovery we ask that you send your data to us at our data recovery centre. This can be done by courier, in person if you are close or using the Royal Mail – we would recommend that if using the Post Office parcel system you register or record your package for your own peace of mind.
Once we have your drive our data recovery South Lanarkshire team will inspect it and provide you with a firm diagnosis as well as a list of all the data that we can successfully recover via email (this data is covered by our quotation unless in excess of 30GBs; if larger than 30GBs we require you to purchase an external storage device from us). If you are happy with this and want us to recover the data we ask that you make payment via BACS or credit/debit card (we do not accept PayPal) and we will return your data to you via next day courier service. To find out more or to request a no obligation quotation call our team on 0141 4040294 Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm – our data recovery centre operates the same hours except Christmas Day and Easter.
