Loss of data on hard drives both internal and external including SD cards. Data recovery is only charged if the data can be retrieved, a customer will be notified whether it is retrievable and if they would like to go ahead with it. They will then need a source where the data can be copied on to for example and external hard drive, USB flash drive etc. If data is not retrievable then there will no charge.
Regardless of the make or model of disk affected, our team of data recovery experts is ideally placed to maximise your chances of a successful data recovery.

How do hard drives lose data?
There are broadly speaking four potential causes for hard drive data loss:
There is no physical fault with the hard disk drive or any of its components. Instead, certain data has become inaccessible for some reason. The most common causes of logical failures are accidental reformatting, a lost partition, virus attacks, deleted files, and corrupted files.
Component failures such as head crashes or motor stoppages can cause some or all of the data on the hard drive to become inaccessible.
Data may become inaccessible after an electronic failure, when components fail or when the drive is supplied with the wrong voltage. Media degradation: Data access becomes inaccessible in certain areas; either because the disk develops bad sectors or it becomes impossible to read the platters.
What causes this and makes hard drive recovery necessary?
Data loss can occur for a whole host of reasons that include but are not limited to the following:
Power surges or outages.
Accidental reformatting or overwriting.
Interference from malware or viruses.
Physical damage caused by exposure to fire, water, extremes in temperature or mishandling.
