    Data Recovery

    Isn't one of our illustrious memebers now in the data recovery business?

    Sorry I can remember who!

    Can you PM me, I'd like a quote, without wishing to broadcast it on general channels!

    I predict the quote is prohibitively expensive.

    Re: Data Recovery

    I recently asked a couple of recovery firms after having a 30gb Fujitsu HD fail in a school notebook; teacher had saved what he described as vital data there instead of his server share. Both were in the £300 to £350 no recovery no fee field.

    I was quoted about £500 from CBL Data Recovery to recover 160GB of data from a failed harddisk.

    I've been quoted about £400, and I'm prepared to spend it!

    File Scavenger 3 is what you need.

    Not if there are any physical defects with the disk or the controller board

    Re: Data Recovery

    if you have 2x of the same drive model you can swap the drive platters/board to recover the data.

    Re: Data Recovery

    We have a copy of RStudio, which will recover the majority of failed OSs/ Partitions, I'm not sure who makes it.

    If there's anything fatally wrong with the disk, then yeah, you need an expert, and a dust-free room.

    Re: Data Recovery

    Is that member still on the board? Could do with a word myself. Alternatively can anyone recommend firms they've actually used?

    Re: Data Recovery

    As a note to anyone who's looking up this topic.

    I'm the member who works in the data recovery industry. I will not give away the company I work for unless you really need us, and will not do it on the board, but if you have any questions feel free to PM me.
