Data recovery can retrieve your all important data whether it is mission critical data from precious family photos from a recent holiday.
Regardless of the make or model of disk affected, our team of data recovery experts is ideally placed to maximise your chances of a successful data recovery.
How do hard drives lose data?
There are broadly speaking four potential causes for hard drive data loss:
Logical failure: There is no physical fault with the hard disk drive or any of its components. Instead, certain data has become inaccessible for some reason. The most common causes of logical failures are accidental reformatting, a lost partition, virus attacks, deleted files, and corrupted files.
Mechanical failure: Component failures such as head crashes or motor stoppages can cause some or all of the data on the hard drive to become inaccessible.
Electronics failure: Data may become inaccessible after an electronic failure, when components fail or when the drive is supplied with the wrong voltage.
Media degradation: Data access becomes inaccessible in certain areas; either because the disk develops bad sectors or it becomes impossible to read the platters.
