RAID Data Recovery in Manchester and London

I have a RAID server system running Windows Server OS. I probably have around 12TB of business data and file on there, mainly Microsoft Office documents. The RAID runs virtual machines (VM’s) and we are located in Manchester City Centre. The RAID is a RAID 5. i need a RAID data recovery clinic service in Manchester. If necessary I can get the RAID data recovery service completed at 68 Lombard Street in London.

I worked on trying to recover the data from the RAID with with a mac, and then one day brought it into work to use (windows) and it was very slow but still registering on the computer. The program would freeze a lot and it i had to use task manager to close it and then one time it froze the computer to bad, not even task manager worked so i had to manually shut down.

I’m getting a beeping noise from some of the hard drives in the RAID array and a Manchester raid data recovery company called data clinic tell me that some of the drives aren’t spinning. It’s been beeping and some of the RAID hard drives aren’t able to spin. It beeps and vibrates when plugged into computer, trying to spin but eventually gives out and goes quiet. I have taken the hard drives out of the server enclosure to eliminate that as the reason behind it’s faultiness, and bought an enclosure (sata 3) to try and connect to laptop but that didn’t work (still beeping and eventually stops when it is shut down). From what i know, the hard drives in the RAID array were never dropped. My partner thinks the 2 heads on two of the server’s RAID hard disks are jammed. What is the likelihood of recovering the data? I was told only 50%?

RAID and data recovery

I had an external RAID 5 hard drive (toshiba passport) that stopped working. It had no reason to stop working, it was not dropped or damaged, it just stopped showing up whenever you plug it in. We spoke to toshiba’s raid specialists and all they’ve been able to do is offer us a replacement…but obviously that means we’ve lost hundreds of precious family photos and important documents. Can I please get a quote on how much it would cost to retrieve my files from it.

My raid hard drive has died, but the disks spin occasionally when plugged into an external device. My laptop went really slow and unresponsive for a few days and then it died. I would like to recover my photos mainly as they are important and as many files as possible! How much do you charge for raid data recovery (i think it’s a raid 6)?

I have a server running a RAID 10 which is several years old now. Last year I formatted it for use with my MacBook and stored hundreds of photos, videos and songs on it. As of last November it was working fine, and has been stored properly since then. Today I attempted to connect it to my MacBook and it was not being detected and was making clicking sounds. I then decided to plug it in to a Windows laptop instead to see if it would still be recognised, and it recognised it but could not install the driver necessary to use it. I then plugged it back into my MacBook and now it is being displayed as “unreadable,” although it does show up in disk utility. I downloaded a program called ‘EaseUs’ and ran a scan to see whether there were still files on the drive, and the scan returned thousands of images and songs. However, I read bad things about that program, and so decided to stop the scan and delete it, and not proceed with using it to recover any data. Now I know that the files are still on the drive, I desperately want them recovered – can you fix RAID data loss?

iPhone File Recoveries

iPhones suffer lots of different problems – people drop them, they sit on them, they get run over, the data gets lost, or the phone may get accidentally factory reset. Below are some enquiries from customers with different problems on their phones, I’ve also put some links on too, to web sites where there’s some goo advice regarding how they can fix their phones and get their files recovered.

My iPhone 6s can’t power on, it can be charged, but when I try to turn it on it always stuck at the apple sign. there has been no physical damage to it. I just want to ask how many days and how much would it cost to recover its data.

I would like to recover pictures from my water damaged iPhone 6, the phone will not turn on!

My iPhone 6s has sustained water damage. I’ve replaced the screen, but it did not help. I want to be able to access the photos off of the phone because iCloud won’t do it for some reason. How much will this cost? Also I can’t be contacted through my phone number.

Iphone 6, bent and cracked screen, no response when plugged into computer, doesn’t seem to be powered on. Would like photos and notes from the SSD if possible?

My iphone 7 plus is stuck on the apple logo. i tried to force shutdown and restart, its still stuck on the logo.
i need the datas in the phone.

My iphone 5 got stuck in boot loop and showed the ‘restore with iTunes’ symbol. When I connected it to iTunes there was the option to update to iOS 10.3.3 or restore so I chose to update. The update initialised for some time then error 26 popped up indicating the update could not be completed. The only option now available was to restore. But I did not restore as I do not have a back-up of the data on my phone. Please will you be able to retrieve the data off my phone?

Data recovery on phones costs around £200 – £400. Sometimes it won’t be possible to recover the files, sometimes it will. It all depends on what happened to the phone and it’s data when it broke.

Computer crime and forensic data recovery

computer (cyber) crimeComputer crime, otherwise known as cybercrime (see here for definition) accounts for a large amount of illegal activity. My laptop was working fine up until quite recently when it was snatched in a robbery. The police were able to recover the laptop for me but when I switched it on, it froze and I turned it off and was getting an error messaging saying ‘Operating system not found’. I had it checked by a local computer company and they say it’s the hard drive that has failed and they can’t fix it. I’ve had the laptop repaired with a new hard drive installed so I can use it again, but if possible I would like to recover as much of the data from the old hard drive as possible – family photos, company accounts (I run a small business) and other information accumulated over the years. It’s a Sony Vaio laptop, and because the computer was damaged during a robbery attempt, I’d like the data recovered using forensic methods so that the crime can be prosecuted at a later date.

I’m seeking to retrieve data (texts/photos/ contacts from my Samsung A3 (still under warranty) that was stolen. I want to avoid getting it all wiped in order to restore access to the computer phone, but I want to prosecute the people responsible for stealing the crime. I’m therefore looking to recover the data so that any submissions required to a legal court are handled in the proper manner. Problem arose when I was suddenly unable to get into it: the device claims (wrongly) that the password I used to open it was incorrect. Visiting Samsung support service at Wembley today; I was told all they could do meant wiping all data; I was advised to look on the internet for a data retrieval service. I can bring phone to a data recovery company on Lombard St. in London to forensically retrieve the data. Phone became slow lately in showing body of new emails – maybe insufficient space?

Mortgage Broker in Manchester – help and advice

I wonder if you can help? – We are a mortgage broker in Manchester and have a Seagate External Hard Drive. The port where the cable plugs in has broken, the bit from the hard drive is actually stuck to the cable. Drive will start up if you hold the cable into the port but connection does not last. how much is it to either to get the port replaced or get all the data downloaded from the hard drive? Please tell me details of you data recovery services.

Was dropped few times. Now makes occasional high-pitched beep noise. The mac can’t read the hard-drive at all. The hard drive contains information about mortgage advice and our brokering details throughout Manchester. Although we work right across the Greater Manchester area we are based in Swinton and Didsbury. We want to especially recover the information about remortgaging and buy to let arrangements as we are moving house.

More details about the hard drive:

The little bit of the hardrive that you use to put the lead in to plug into the computer was getting very loose and the lead had to be held at a certain angle to work but then just stopped working- so now I can’t connect in to my laptop via the lead, us there anyway I could still revive the data?

I hope you can help me. My external hard drive (we are located in Manchester) is failing, my laptop is unable to read it by all means. I tried in a different computer and nothing. I have very valuable (mortgage broker) information in it and I was wondering if you can do something to recover it? Any advice would be very much appreciated as I don’t know what to do.

I hope you can help / offer advice? You can contact the us (the Manchester mortgage brokering team) on 0161 706 0242

SCSI / Tape and old Seagate HDD recovery

I’d like to get a quote to get an SCA UltraSCSI3 300GB drive imaged. The drive is fine however the server it was in has blown power and I have no other devices capable of interfacing with an SCA backplane. If you could give me an idea of a cost and timescale (for your City location) that’d be great.

The hard drive suddenly started making clicking noises, and the computer shut down at that moment.
After I took the hard drive out of the tower, then replaced and reconnected it, and switched on the computer, there was a loud pop. And the power supply emitted a smell of smoke.

MacBook & iMac hard drives need recovery

Expert Apple Mac data recovery kings Data Clinic recently told us about some of the more bizarre Apple Mac file recoveries they’ve recently been involved in.

Macbook and iMac

The hard drive in our Apple Mac 2012 has failed. It has already been into Apple to check the cable but that was fine. They have said they can still hear it ticking. It is a 2.5 SATA HDD.

My iMac is connected to a WD MyCloud failed and I was unable to access any files previously stored on the drive. Took the drive to Halifax Computers for them to check and they recommended we seek your services. On their inspection they reported that the drive had 64 errors and that the partitions are all raw. The drive has been removed from the WD MyCloud casing and is a 3tb WD Red NAS Hard Drive I’d be keen to understand the costs involved in retrieving the data stored on the drive.

I have a G tech 2TB external hard drive for my iMac. The input seems to have dislodged so I am unable to plug it in, this has happened before with a previous drive but I was able to wedge it back in. In this case it seems that the connector to the hard drive has broken, so it doesn’t work and I can hear something rattling inside.
The last time I got access to it, there wasn’t any problem in terms of accessing data so I think it’s just a hardware issue.
Are you able to have a look at it for me? What would be the price / turnaround for this kind of problem?
I need access to the drive ASAP so it would be great if I could come in today to get it sorted.

My MacBook Pro would not start after I turned it off because some of the apps were being very slow or not opening. I spent a whole day on the phone to Apple Support trying to fix this by using an external hard drive onto which the OS X software had been downloaded and running the computer from that. Tried to find the Macintosh internal drive which was greyed out and attempted to repair and mount disk which did not work. Apple support couldn’t do any more than that and said I should contact a data recovery company – they seemed to think it was likely that the internal disk hadn’t entirely broken down but that a file had corrupted it.
Let me know if you need any more details as to what I have already tried. I need to know if my data is still there quite urgently as I am a student and have essays and dissertations to hand in very soon and mainly need to know how much something like this would cost.

MacBook Pro fails to boot up. Disk utility cannot verify or repair disk.

Recovering deleted SMS Messages

recover sms text messagesMy daughter has a Samsung mobile. She had received sms text messages which could act as evidence to incriminate a man who has seriously assaulted her. She deleted them as a reaction to the assault but 2 weeks later has come forward and gone to the police. I’m hoping you can recover the messages in a form which would suitable to be used as evidence in a criminal prosecution. The phone case and screen is badly damaged from being dropped previously but the system fully functional. If the phone needs to be taken apart I am happy to sacrifice the phone and replace it. If this is possible, how much would it cost for you to recover the texts?

I have a lg nexus 4 that stopped working and would like to recover my data and ams text messages from the internal memory. It seems the motherboard is dead, it wont charge or start. There is no physical damage. Is this something you can provide and how much will it cost?

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge – SMS text recovery
The phone crashes and won’t power on past the Samsung logo. It displays a black screen with a blue light. All attempts to get to the recovery menu have also failed as it crashes there too. I can’t get the phone to switch on long enough to get my data, pictures and text / sms messages off before it crashes. No combination of buttons to boot the phone have worked
