Hard Drive Data Recovery
Hard Drive Data Recovery
ACE Data Recovery provides hard drive recovery on a full range of hard disk drives including internal and external hard drives of all sizes, makes and models. Our data recovery engineers have decades of experience in retrieving business and personal files from servers, desktops, laptops, and netbooks. Never assume that data on your hard drive was lost forever, no matter what it has been through. We can retrieve any data even from storage devices that other data recovery companies deem “unrecoverable”.
No matter what type of hard disk you have, we’ll perform an initial diagnostic for free. After the evaluation of your media and determining what steps are necessary to complete your hard drive recovery, we will contact you with an all-inclusive quote. No work will be done without your approval. As soon as you approve the recovery, our engineers will continue with the recovery effort.
Data recovery from damaged hard drives is a complex process that usually takes time and needs resources to complete it successfully. We partner with HDD manufacturers to improve our data recovery capabilities. Generally speaking, our specialists need to “repair” a hard drive and make it stable first to be able to retrieve any data from it. Therefore, hard drive recovery involves replacing failed components such as read/write head assemblies, logic control components, or drive motors in a clean room environment.
Hard Disk Recovery - Different Systems, Different Techniques
Hard drives with different architectures can be similar, but each type also has its own "favorite" failures and different techniques to handle:
Retrieving Data from Physically Damaged Hard Disk Drives
If a hard disk is inaccessible, we first test the components and closely examine drive platters to determine the extent of physical damage. These steps enable us to layout a course of action for each individual drive.
ACE Data Recovery engineers perform free evaluation and all hard drive recovery procedures in our Class 100 Clean Rooms. They are designed to maintain exceptional air purity, containing less than 100 airborne particles larger than 0.5 microns in each cubic foot of air. Such an environment is vital for protecting the sensitive internal components of hard drives.
We follow only non-destructive hard drive data recovery processes that include drive sectors cloning. This means that we’ll pull data from your drive on a sector by sector basis and work directly on the clone. This procedure ensures that the drive is not damaged any further and that a second image of the original structure can be acquired if needed.
Inaccessible data might be experiencing logical and/or physical hard drives failures. The process of getting data back from a logically damaged file system requires the use of data recovery software. Our Research & Development team has developed its own software to salvage our clients’ data. No special physical equipment or environment is required in such situations.
Our team performs data recovery from all operating systems including:
- Windows (any flavor!)
- Any Apple MAC OS
- UNIX (selected families)
- And more!
After that our engineers will recover your data by using highly sophisticated techniques and proprietary equipment and software. The average time for completing hard disk recovery is 3-5 Business Days. After we validate the data, we’ll place it on a free suitable return media, whether it is another hard drive, flash drive, or your own storage device.
Our hard drive recovery process meets manufacturer’s requirements and will not void your original warranty.We recover data from any hard drives made by but not limited to the following manufacturers:
- Western Digital
- Hitachi Global Storage
- Buffalo Technology
