Rescued all of my old backups and photos

I want to thank Jason Molinaro and the team at Secure Data Recovery for helping us retrieve the data from our failing harddrive. The results of the recovery were perfect and only a handful unnecessary files were not recovered. The team had excellent customer service, communication and a very fast turn around time. I will definitely use this service again if we ever have another disk problem.

Saved my photos, videos and music in time for Chr

The secure data team was able to retrieve over 99% of my back up hard drive that had all of my photos and videos for the last 20+ years. Their customer service is excellent.

Hard Drive Failure Types

Modern hard drives are a technological marvel, containing numerous sensitive components susceptible to physical, electrical, mechanical, and logical failures.

Common problems include bad sectors, read/write head crashes or stiction, PCB failure, and drive motor and bearings issues. All these scenarios cause the hard drive to cease normal operations and require hands-on hard drive repair inside a specialized cleanroom environment.

  • Motor Malfunction
  • Head Crash
  • PCB failure
  • Firmware Errors

Are you experiencing any of these hard drive failure scenarios? Stop using and immediately power down the hard drive, then contact a professional data recovery company for a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do hard drives fail, and what can I do to prevent this from happening?

    Hard drives have several mechanical components that can wear down over time. The read/write heads, spindle and actuator assembly are particularly sensitive, and a slight offset will prevent the drive from reading data correctly. Likewise, the hard drive's electronics can fail due to an electrical event or improper operating conditions. This prevents the drive from interfacing with your computer.

    User error, virus attacks and file corruption can also cause data loss. When any of these situations occur, you need help from a professional data recovery company in order to restore access to the files on your disk.

  • What factors affect hard drive data recovery pricing?

    Dozens of factors can affect pricing. Your hard drive's brand, model and failure scenario play an especially significant role.

    Secure Data Recovery Services offers risk-free standard diagnostics for all desktop, laptop and external hard drives. During our diagnostics, our engineers perform a series of tests to analyze the extent of media damage, which allows for an accurate price quote and turnaround estimate. Contact us to set up an evaluation at one of our offices

  • How do hard drive data recovery experts restore access to my files?

    The answer varies from case to case, but our teams typically repair or replace damaged hard drive components--including the read/write heads, the actuator arm assembly and other delicate parts--in a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom. All engineers need to work in a certified Cleanroom to prevent accidental media damage.

    Corruption can still prevent file access, particularly if the drive was operated in a failed state. Our teams then create a full copy (or "clone") of your hard drive, then run specialized software on the copy to retrieve your files. In some cases, our engineers will work directly with data on a bit or block level.

    After recovering your files in their original condition, we return your data on the return media of your choice.

  • How long does hard drive data recovery take?

    We offer several service options; our emergency service has an average case completion time of under a day. Contact our customer service team for more information.

  • Is laptop hard drive data recovery different from desktop data recovery?

    While the general process is the same, our engineers use a different set of tools to perform delicate procedures on smaller hard drives. Engineers treat physical media damage by repairing damaged components, at which point they can access your data and treat any file corruption.

    It is important to note that the physical size of a hard drive does not necessarily affect the chances of a successful recovery. We offer exceptionally high success rates for laptop drives, micro drives and other drives with a small form factor.

  • Should I use hard drive data recovery software to fix my system?

    No. While there are dozens of data recovery programs on the market, there is no way to fix physical media issues with software. You may seriously damage your hard drive by operating it after a component failure.

    If you have accidentally deleted files from a hard drive, data recovery software could potentially overwrite your data during installation. Contact a professional data recovery provider for the best results.
