Data Recovery from Damaged Hard Drives
The constant effort of our electronic engineers, together with the highest quality standards and a world class laboratory equiped with a Certified Class 100 Clean Room, are some of the factors by which we are able to have the highest success rate (more than 90%) in Recovering data from damaged hard drives in the region.
We recover data from hard drives in all types of data loss situations; including:
Any type of Hard Drive
- Internal Hard Drives (SATA, SAS, IDE/ATA...)
- External Hard Drives (USB, FireWire, e-SATA...)
- Networked Hard Drives (NAS)
- Hard Drives for Cameras (DVR)
- Old devices (IDE/XT, ESDI...)
Any type of Operating System
- Windows (NTFS, FAT)
- MAC (HFS)
- Linux (Ext3, Ext4)
- DOS, Novell NetWare…
Any type of fault
- Logical Damage (erased, formated, virus...)
- Physical Damage (mechanical, electronic...)
Any Brand of Hard Drive
- Western Digital
Further explanation of the types of faults that occur in Hard Drives:
Logical Faults: The hard drive works correctly, but all or some of the files can not be accessed for logical reasons, such as deleted data, lost partitions, or accidental formatting. In these cases it is recommended not to manipulate the hard drive anymore as the Operating System may think that the sectors which contain the information to be recovered are free and can be overwritten with other information resulting in permanent data loss.
Physical Faults: You can not read or write information on the Hard Drive, and sometimes it may make noises while running. The most common causes are injury to the read/write headers or electromechanical failure. Again in these cases it is recommended not to manipulate the Hard Drive anymore since the reader head may have been damaged, in which case it may be scratching the platter (medium where the information is stored). Usually this type of case requires a Certified Clean Room because (this expensive equipment) is the only way to open a Hard Drive without contaminating it.
How does DataRecoveryHDD.com recover data from a Hard Drive?
Faced with a Logical Fault: We use for these cases hardware and highly specialized software that allows us to connect the Hard Drive in read only mode; a mode that Recuva, Pandora Recovery, Recover My Files, and many other programs that you can find on the Internet do not allow, because it requires the control of the functions of the Operating System, which can only be achieved with highly specialized and expensive hardware tools. In this way, at DataRecoveryHDD.com we can perform different scans and forensic analysis of your Hard Drive without running the risk that the Operating System, programs (for example, antivirus, defragmenters, etc.) or people (when copying, creating or moving information) can alter the Hard Drive in any way before the desired information is recovered.
Faced with a Physical Fault: At DataRecoveryHDD.com not only do we have a Certified Clean Room, but we are also the only laboratory in the region that works exclusively with highly specialized electronic engineers, HDDSurgery tools for the replacement of headers and Acelab firmware control tools, which gives us our success rate equal to none.
We recover data from all brands and models of Hard Drives
Not only do we recover data from all brands of hard drives, but we are the only data recovery laboratory in the region to become a partner of one of the largest Hard Drive manufacturers in the world, Seagate.
Users and Professionals of Technology and information technology rely on DataRecoveryHDD.com to recover data from apparently unrecoverable hard drives. We have the most advanced technology avaliable worldwide to recover lost data from any device regardless of the type of failure, as evidenced by the hundreds of cases received by our engineers each year.
