Our process

While studies demonstrate that more than 60% of companies go out of business within six months after serious data loss, SalvageData has been successfully combating this disappointing statistic for more than two decades now with high-end equipment and cutting-edge recovery technologies.


SalvageData understands the devastating consequences of data loss like no other. With years of experience in file recovery from all types of storage devices, we offer our customers the most accurate diagnostics, and pick the most appropriate solutions to ensure quick and efficient retrieval for missing data.


We know that different cases require different approaches. Having chosen the most suitable recovery method, we carefully restore your data piece by piece to ensure the best possible result.

Review Results

We value our reputation highly, and therefore are interested in making the recovery procedure as transparent as possible. Once the process is complete, we’ll send you a list of all the files we've managed to retrieve, so you can make sure all your data is in place.


Once the amount of restored files is determined, we can calculate the cost of the recovery. At SalvageData we try to keep prices as low as possible, but the cost always depends on the degree of damage to the device and the complexity of recovery as such.

Receive data

Depending on the condition of your drive and your wishes, we can securely return the drive with all the retrieved information back to you via safe shipping, by loading the files onto a new storage device, or simply by sending the files to you digitally.

What to do when your SSD fails

A few tips on how to recognize a dying SSD in time, and what to do about it

step 01

Unlike regular hard drives, SSD failures are quite difficult to diagnose for they rarely report failures with beeps, squeaks, or annoying noises. If the most obvious tricks like reconnecting the SSD to your computer, formatting it, Error checking, and scanning its drivers for available updates didnt help, move on to the next step.

step 02

If the drive is behaving strangely (freezes, performance drops, etc.), you might be dealing with one of the many logical issues that SSDs are largely prone to, such as excessive bad blocks, bugs in SSDs firmware, and so on. Run the built-in system utility to examine the health of the drive, or use free SSD wellness checking software that you can find on the Internet.

step 03

Finally, the problem might be caused by a sudden power outage while the drive was in operation, malfunctioning electronic components, or even wear and tear on the NAND cells that occurs with age. And since it can only be diagnosed by a specialist, the best thing you can do to save precious files and folders is to contact SalvageData professional recovery lab for a free assessment of your case.

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.
