Our process

The quality of data recovery services differs from company to company. Even if your data has been claimed to be unrestorable by other recovery labs, don't hesitate to contact SalvageData for assistance, and let our talented crew do their best to bring your precious files back to life.


Diagnosing a device won't take long if you have a good eye, and over twenty years of expertise in data recovery. Simply bring us your defective device for a free examination, and we will soon be able to provide you with an estimate of the cost and amount of data recoverable.


At SalvageData, we are well aware of the value of digital data in today's world, and thus pay special attention to the relevance of the equipment and techniques we employ. No matter how hopeless your case may seem, our experts will do everything in their power to retrieve your data safely and securely from the depths of the drive.

Review Results

We want you to know exactly what you are paying for. By providing a list of restored files upon completion of the recovery process, we aim to offer our customers the best experience and make the retrieval procedure as fair and transparent as it should be.


Once you approve the results of the recovery, we'll provide you with a quote for the work completed. The final cost will depend on the complexity of the restoration, with logical errors normally tending to be cheaper than tricky mechanical failures that can be quite expensive.

Receive data

Depending on your wishes, we can safely return the drive with all the information recovered via shipping, by downloading the obtained files to a new device, or simply by sending them to you digitally.


There’s a multitude of reasons for a RAID 5 array to fail. Continuing to operate a RAID 5 system in a degraded mode can severely damage or impair the entire system. In case your RAID 5 is behaving strangely, the following three-steps walkthrough will help you protect your data from potential loss:

step 01

First and foremost, shut your RAID 5 down in safe mode

step 02

Remember there is a high probability of making the situation worse by attempting a DIY repair, so it’s better not to tamper with, or try fixing it on your own

Typically a hard drive failure. Your system could be struggling for a variety of reasons, but it is likely due to a mechanical or logical error in your hard drive.

This issue could be an electrical issue due to a power surge or faulty power supply. Depending on how urgent files are needed, searching for backup file information is your best temporary fix while your device is being worked on. If files are not backed up, that does not mean the information is gone for good.

Irregular noises such as these coming from your hard drive are not a good sign. You should turn off your device in a logical manner to prevent any further damage, then contact us.

Error messages are often an indication there is a logical error with your hard drive. On occasion, this can be fixed using data recovery software.

This could be due to a problem with the BIOS settings, a physical hard drive issue, or a connection failure. If the drive is removed and inserted into a different computer but is unable to work properly, you should contact a data recovery professional immediately.

When a hard drive physically stops working, that is the crash. When this happens, a drive can fail to boot, respond slowly, or not power on at all. A computer not turning on is a sign that the hard drive could have crashed.
