  • Hard Drive Data Recovery

    hard-drive-recovery SATA, EIDE, IDE, SCSI, SSD Hard Drives: If you notice any intermittent noise coming from the hard drive, it means that the hard disk drive in question has either crashed or is going to crash very soon. Please, try to back up your data, while the computer is still running.

    Heightened noise signals some unsuitability and is usually the first sign of a hard drive crash. Shut down your computer, if the operating system has stopped working and there is grinding, scratching or clickin noise coming from hard drive. Keeping the system running at this point may damage the platters to the extent that it will destroy all the data. Do not even try to hook it up with another computer as the drive is already crashed and the data is inaccessible. Sometime, you feel that the drive is spinning but it is not detected by BIOS. This is another sign of hard drive crash. This case should also be treated with care.

How long does removable digital media, smart phone or hard drive take?

One of the first questions we get asked by most consumers is “How long will the recovery take?”. Unfortunately there is no clear cut answer to that question, as each case is different. Many hard drives or removable digital media can be recovered in 24 to 48 hours. However here are some circumstances to consider that may change the overall time frame of the data recovery.

Hardware Condition – A drive that is fully functional is much faster to recover data from than one that is seriously damaged and must be repaired. So cases that are simply related to accidental format, deletion, viruses, etc. are generally pretty quick on the turnaround. Usually within 24 to 48 hours for most cases, however there are times when it takes longer. Drives needing hardware recovery generally take about 5 to 7 days, but can take longer based on other things below.

Smart Phone / Hard Drive / Removable Digital Media Size – Even if a drive is fully functional a removable digital media, smart phone or large hard drive will take as much longer to perform a single scan, and a typical recovery may involve several scans to productively find all files. Also as a professional data recovery lab, we always clone the removable digital media, smart phone or hard drive first to prevent any possibility of mishap while working with the data. As a rule of thumb expect an extra day for drives larger than 500Gb or a few days for drives larger than 2Tb.

Availability of Donor Parts – For hard drives or removable digital media with hardware issues, parts are often needed to repair them to a semi-functional condition where the data can be successfully obtained. Some hard drive sub-models are very routine and easy to find the parts from one of our vendors. However others are not. In a very unlikely instance we may even have to spend weeks searching online and calling other data recovery labs for the specific drive or parts we need. Or we may even have to buy a donor drive from overseas and wait for it to arrive. Usually this is the longest part of the whole process for hardware level recoveries.

Functionality of removable digital media, smart phone or hard drive after Repair – Many makes of hard drives don’t take kindly to replacement parts, and don’t function anywhere near their full potential after an internal repair. As drives write magnetic data on a microscopic level, even the slightest micro variation (or micro jog) in manufacturing of parts may cause the drive to invariably have to re-read data over and over. While unlikely, some drives can take a month or more to obtain all the data after such internal repairs.

How do I get my data back after recovery?

Upon conclusion of the recovery, you are welcome to provide your own return media. For removable digital media and hard drives, they would normally be a external hard drive. Or, if you’d prefer you can purchase a new external hard drive from us at a competitive price and we’ll copy the data to that.
