It’s often not a question of if, but when you will need data recovery. However, when that time comes, you can trust that SalvageData Recovery has the extensive experience and expertise to recover data from every manufacturer, make, model and operating system storage device. With some of the most proficient recovery engineers around today, state of the art data recovery tools and clean room facilities we can ensure every client receives professional and fast data recovery service.
The data recovery process is highly dependent on the type of data and the media upon which it is stored. For more details on the most commonly requested scenarios, please select from the list below. If your data loss issue concerns a proprietary or otherwise unusual data or media type, please call or email us to discuss your options.
SalvageData Recovery has a full range of recovery services available for hard drives and operating systems, including:
People lose access to data for a multitude of reasons. The two most common categories of data loss are logical and physical.
When a user deletes a file, whether accidentally or intentionally, the actual data is not destroyed, but the computer system now regards that data as no longer required.
As long as the ‘deleted data’ has not been overwritten by new data, it can be found, reconstituted and recovered. Therefore the quicker you can get the affected hard disk drive to us, the better your chances of receiving 100% of your deleted data.
In some circumstances, a file itself may be seen and recognized by a computer system, but the internal structures of the file have become damaged, or are corrupted.
This is particularly common with large databases or email files. SalvageData Recovery has the tools and expertise to ‘fix’ a large range of corrupted data files so the data they contain can be recovered.
Due to the importance of the data stored on these systems, speed of recovery is often the key consideration. The good news is that RAID's hardware fault tolerance makes the chances of a successful recovery extremely high.
RAID and other enterprise server environments have a high degree of fault tolerance, however, they are sometimes susceptible to corruption. The successful and timely recovery of data from these servers requires a thorough understanding of the server set up. Our development staff are experts in evaluating the soft and hard configurations of your system to understand how the data loss has occurred and how to solve the problem in the fastest time possible.
Each recovery is highly specific, and the more detail you can provide us with at the initial assessment phase, the greater our chances of a fast recovery. Where appropriate, you may be required to interface directly with our development staff.
Tape is susceptible to three main types of data loss: head-alignment issues, partial over-write and tape breakage.
In many cases, the tape or tape drive can be mended so that the data can be read and copied out to a different medium. We have access to all tape drives commonly used, and are experienced in the handling of all tape types and formats.
Cards used to store data in digital cameras, MP3 players and USB storage devices are often ‘solid-state’ memory devices. This means that the data is stored on chips rather than on moving media such as hard disk drive platters or tape.
Chips come in two main types: volatile and non-volatile. Where a chip set is described as volatile, any loss of direct power to the chip means that the data is lost. Where a chip set is non-volatile, the data is retained, even if electric power is not continually applied. The logical structure of data on non-volatile storage media like most ‘flash memory’, is very similar to that on a disk drive, and can be recovered in a similar way. ...
