Data Recovery service is the method of pulling data from a crashed system, infected system or accidentally deleted or formatted hard drive.

 Using top of the line industry data recovery machines and software we can usually save data that has been lost.  The process can take anywhere from an hour up to several days depending on the severity of the loss.

The hardware must still be in a functioning state for data recovery to proceed.  If a hard drive, USB drive or media card is damaged or burned out normal data recovery service may not be enough.  We have agreements with several off-site “CLEAN ROOM” facilities to attempt recovery in this type of situation.  Prices for this type of recovery are the the clean room facilities discretion.


Question :  Can all data be recovered from a hard drive ?

Answer : No, data on damaged drives or drives that have been  professionally erased may not be able to be recovered.  Furthermore,  recovered data from encrypted drives may not be readable or useable  depending on the encryption.


Another use for data recovery which is done in-shop is the transfer of data from an old machine to a new machine.  Please note that this is data only. Installed software cannot be transferred from one machine to the next. To install the software on your new machine would require the the original software and license information.
