Bedford Data Recovery

Data Recovery Bedford; Hard drives, external hard disk drives, network assisted storage (NAS), mass storage devices, RAID setups, we recover the data from all of these and a whole lot more besides. For over 16 years now our engineers have been using the most up-to-date recovery technology as well as their own experience and bespoke recovery techniques to help computer users just like you get the data back that you need to carry on with whatever you need it for. To find out more or to ask for a hassle free no obligation quotation call our team today on 01223 655015.

The hard drive is a truly wondrous piece of computer technology – at least when it works – this is what we hear a lot. However when the hard drive breaks down and computer users from all walks of life have no access to their data it can become something of a nightmare as our data recovery Bedford team know only too well. With delicate and complex components moving at lightning speeds there is a risk that something can go wrong and unfortunate for some unlucky users it can and will.

Picture if you will the inside of your hard drive as a vinyl record over which a stylus moves to play each track. This is an analogy our data recovery Bedford engineers use as a means of explaining just what happens inside the hard drive. Read/write heads pass over platters at great speed, carried by actuator arms that are thinner than your average human hair and when these components come into contact with each other (which generally they are not supposed to) this is when problems can and do arise.

One of most common warnings that something isn’t right is when the hard drive you are using begins to make strange grating sounds, reminiscent of metal grating against metal (or the sound of something stuck in the spokes of a bicycle wheel) – our data recovery team are here to help recover your data should your hard drive fail soon after these noises occur.

The noise began as intermittent then constant now the hard drive has given up!

Again the aforementioned is something our data recovery Bedford personnel hear a lot. It is common (but not always the case) that the hard drive will make this noise as the components within make contact; this happens when the platters which are normally separated by thin cushions of air make contact with each other and our data recovery Bedford personnel are familiar with this as an occurrence.

Have you been unfortunate enough to hear any of the sounds we have described? Did you hear these sounds just prior to your hard drive failing? Are you now unable to access your data? If so contact our data recovery Bedford team on 01223 655015 and speak to one of our engineering team who will provide you with a preliminary diagnosis of the problem, details of how our No Fix No Fee policy works and a no obligation quotation (this may include an additional fee levied if the drive has suffered mechanical failure). If you are happy with our diagnosis of the problem and want us to recover your data we ask that you send us the afflicted drive (only the drive as we make images of the data to be recovered from it) to our data recovery Bedford and Bedfordshire centre. Our engineers will accept the drive via post, courier or in person if you are in a position to deliver it yourself.

On receipt of the drive into our data recovery centre our data recovery Bedford engineers will make a definitive diagnosis of the problem and report back with the details of our findings via email. The email will also detail comprehensively the data that can be recovered in its entirety (including files, folders and directories). If your data is larger in volume that the 30GBs we allow as part of our recovery service we may ask that you purchase an external storage device onto which it can be recovered; our engineer will talk you through the options open to you. If you wish for us to continue with the recovery we ask that you make payment to us in full via credit or debit card or BACS transfer (we do not accept PayPal). Once payment has been received we will recover your data to its new storage device or data DVD (if less than 30GBs) and return it to you by next day courier. For further information on how we can recover your data or to request a no obligation quote call our team today on 01223 655015 (our lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm as is our data recovery centre). We are closed Christmas Day and Easter.
