One of our data recovery processes has managed to reunite a man with all his data including family photos whose iMac had become so full it would no longer boot up. He was fortunate in that we recovered all the data required, and completed a full back up before wiping his drive and reinstalling the latest IOS for him.
This did take quite some time to complete when its a nearly full 1Tb hard drive to recover, but photos are very important as memories can’t be relived
If you are suffering from data loss, or your computer / Laptop isn’t running right or unexpectedly shutting down and you can’t access your data, here are a few steps to follow to ensure the highest chance of a successful recovery..
Turn off your computer as continued operation can cause greater damage and lead to further loss of data.
- Do not restart the computer:- when a hard drive is in a distressed state, any extra actions can cause more damage to your data.
- Do not install or re-install any software or hardware.
- Do not shake, disassemble, or attempt to clean a damaged drive.
- Do not use a file recovery or other data recovery software to repair a damaged drive.
- Do not try to clean or dry a wet drive
- Do not try to operate a visibly damaged device.
We can usually recover valuable business data or irreplaceable personal files, lost documents, spread sheets, presentations, database files, graphics, photos, music files or virtually any other type of file we put our specialist knowledge and cutting-edge technology to work on, and if we can’t then we know someone who can.
