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%?

Devmgmt and Diskmgmt files – data recovery

Hard drives are showing as powered, and can feel a vibration as if the disks are spinning.
fails to appear on devmgmt.msc & diskmgmt.msc

devmgmt file (windows)Seagate hard drive dropped no longer working. Has important student work on it. It clicks when plugged in.

I have 3 hard drives which I need downloading to access photos/videos etc.
Are you able to give me an approximate starting price please.

Power cut during data transfer, Hardrive has gone into RAW format. I’ve used free software to do a deep scan but when I’ve gone to recover data, the files come back in parts or corrupted. The external hard drive that has failed I’d a 2TB WD Passport. When transferring the data i had cut instrad of copied, I just wanted to enquire if you would be able to get all the data back in working condition. The files include documemts/pictures/vidoes/basic programs and software.

Seagate Expansion Desktop Drive 2T stopped working,can’t any signal from it and the blue flashing light is not showing up. No recollection of dropping it. Not showing up in the devmgmt.msc file.

I have installed windows onto my Mac and now all of the photos, documents etc that were saved on my computer have gone. I have checked my iCloud and my iCloud library is empty and I have no other back up. I was wondering whether it was likely that any of the data is recoverable and, if so, what this is likely to cost?

I dropped my external hard drive and other companies say they can’t retrieve the data as you need a clean room

Consultant. Left project with my laptop. However, to keep with project security requirements, CP FDE was enforced and agreed to. Unfortunately, I have these two laptops that are CP FDE’d and haven’t gotten any recovery media, and as my usual luck would have it, no documentation with passwords. Any help or insight on this would be greatly appreciated. Both laptops are Dell’s. Hard drive not appearing is devmgmt.

WD My Passport Ultra beeps by 7 times, then 3 times and 3 times when connected, after it had dropped from a metre.

My seagate 1tb external hard drive stopped showing up on my windows 10 lenovo ideapad laptop

Hard drive doesn’t appear in the bios and no computer can locate it, not even devmgmt or diskmgmt display them as working, it is a 60GB HDD which was failing as it did a disk check every time you booted the laptop

My portable hard disc is not recognized in any computer device. but I understand that it is functioning inside.as i remember the problem is one day I remove the portable hard disc at once without using the the safe mode.

I have just put together my new Desktop PC and connected my old HDD which was working fine on the previous set up and when I switch on the PC it starts to make clicking noise for about 10-15 seconds after which no noise and it doesn’t get recognised in Windows or BIOS. Could you help with what is causing the problem and if it can be fixed as i have valuable information on the hard drive?

Manchester Stockport RAID Data Recovery

I have a custom built RAID server that runs our business which recently stopped showing up on the company network. It’s a 10 drive RAID 5 array with 10 3TB hard drives. Two off the hard drives are offline and the RAID is not functioning at all. Before this, one hard drive had failed and the server array was running in degraded mode. I tested each disk in disk utilities and I tested them on a pc and these two hard drive doesn’t show up on there either. The company is based in Stockport and I want to use and raid data recovery service that is local to Manchester.

BL9 7NX data recovery for RAID, Manchester and Stockport

I recently had my RAID 6 fixed and converted to a RAID 5 server array running Windows server, however, some of the the hard drives in the RAID were broken (unable to be powered up) and there is a lot of valuable data on there. I was told that a professional RAID data recovery service would be able to access the data – is this possible? If so, how much will it cost and how long will it take? My nearest data recovery centre is Bury in Greater Manchester and the actual computer that requires the files recovering is in Cheadle, Stockport.

I dropped my NAS RAID tower and it wouldn’t reboot so I made a claim for accidental damage with my insurance company. They refused my claim as they stated the last used date was march 2014 when I claimed it was used up to august 2017. My grandson used it to play games eg minecraft.. They have cancelled my insurance and accused me of fraud. I contacted the server supplier in Manchester City Centre who built the RAID and they informed me that originally it had a mirrored RAID and when one of the drives stopped communicating it was disconnected and that may have been the drive checked. I notified them and they said the other drive was checked. I said that was not in the original report and finally they agreed to an independent report. I need to prove that the LUD was in 2017 (which is the case) and clear my name of making a fraudulent claim. I am hoping you can examine all the drives and prove the LUD was 2017 and was being used to play games as their accusation has dire consequences for me.

Data Recovery 10 disk RAID Servers in Manchester and Leeds

RAID data recovery Manchester

We have tried various raid data recovery methods with no success, the system won’t install new OS in boot, and we can’t repair the system with disk utilities or in recovery mode. This leads us to believe that the disks have become corrupted. The raid is a 10 disk raid 5 server running MS Windows Server with 10 x 3TB SATA hard drives. It’s a custom built raid server and is located in a data centre in Manchester. I can get access to the server and if I were to bring it across to Data Clinic in Bury, Greater Manchester for you to recover would I need to bring the whole raid 5 array or just the hard drives?

A typical data centreThe facility in Manchester report that at least one of the hard drives in the RAID is not working consistently. It will not load and when it does i can view all files yet cannot copy them to save them. I need all the files off the drive regardless what happens to the box. Is this something you can do? The light is on and the wd passport is whirring, yet it will not copy files. Please can you let me know if you can recover my files and roughly how much this will cost? I am quite distressed about loosing all my info, so if you could please email me asap. I know that because the system we are running is a raid that the data is spread across all the hard drives in the server array, does that mean that in order to recover the data from the RAID I need to recover the data from all the RAID disks in the server?

Leeds data recovery of raid server

I have a 10TB RAID 5 with 10 Seagate hard drives. The hard drives are 4TB each and during a raid rebuild 3 of the disks went offline. This led to the raid failing and the system crashed. Obviously we have now lost access to the data. It’s critically important that this data is recovered. The server is in Leeds city centre and I’m now informed that some of the hard drives are making a clicking noise and data cannot be read from them anymore. The Leeds data centre also tell me that some of the drives are coming up as not initialised. We have not initialised as this would create a new MBR and make it harder I guess to recover the data.
Can you please let me know how much it will cost to recover the data in Leeds?

I know of a Data Clinic just off of the Gelderd ring road in Leeds and can either call in to this location or have the data recovered in Manchester.

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.

Seagate External Raid Hard Drive in a raid array, possible spindle motor problem, possibly water damage, motor runs for a couple of seconds then stops, would data be retrievable?

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?

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

Data Recovery – Phones / SD cards / Hard Drives

Much of the information we keep today is stored digitally. This is fine until something goes wrong and we are no longer able to access our data. When this happens we need to find a skilled data recovery company to assist us. Here are some examples of different digital storage media that requires data recovery and were sent to UK data recovery company Datlabs to have the data extracted.

My phone suddenly stopped working one day with the screen turning black and unresponsive. I tried turning it on but it wasn’t turning on. I also tried to charge the phone but then after a minute or so the phone started overheating. After talking to someone from Samsung support centre, they said the motherboard is broken. I wanted to know whether it was possible to recover the data on my phone.

I have a 64gb SD card which I took on holiday with my camera. It seems to have been corrupted to the point where it is no longer recognised as a storage device on my computer. I was wondering if you would be able to recover the files on it and if so how much that would it be?

I have a 2014 MacBook Air and it has water damage and now will not power on. Is there any way of fixing/recovering the data from this??

I have a WD Elements external hard drive that makes clicking sounds and doesn’t get verified by any PC. I would be very grateful if you could advice me on this.

A broken hard drive

I need my documents from my hard drive recovered. a local company said the hard drive is damaged and needs a specialised company to do this. can you help?

I have a Toshiba 3TB external hard drive, model number MQ03UBB300. I need to replace the read/write heads. Do you have any spare?

I have a Lacie Porsche drive (Firewire 400, I think) that I can’t power up any longer. I think it’s a drive fault rather than a cable issue. There’s not much of great importance on the drive, but there are the only copies of some photographs I would hate to lose. It would be great to recover them

My laptop came into contact with a magnet and will no longer work. I’ve taken it to Curry’s PC World to try and have the data recovered, but they’ve told me that an advanced data recovery is required because the drivers are damaged. I am able to turn the laptop on but all I can see is the ‘Aptio Setup Utility’ page.

Appears drive has failed. Slow writing / reading to begin with, then I fixed some bad sectors. The next day nothing could be read / written from it. Is still recognised by BIOS and OS but will sit at 100% usage and causes explorer.exe to hang. Encrypted with BitLocker.

Data Recovery Bradford

Here are some of the data recovery enquiries from the areas of Bradford and Huddersfield we’ve received recently.

BradfordI just wanted to access my Toshiba external harddrive But it makes a weir ticking sound every 0.5seconds. I cant remember dropping the Harddrive..
Theres some Data on that drive which I really need.
How much would it cost me to get it recovered and how fast can that be done?
Im originally from Bradford and am coming to Bury in Manchester on Tuesday.

Seagate model SRD0NF1 2tb drive was dropped on the floor now powers and has a tick beep noise and no longer recognized by my laptop.

Seagate Mementus 5400.3 160GB
hard drive start spining and after few seconds makes repeated click noise

Synology NAS disk, clicking upon NAS boot up, recovery of files needed
WD Red NAS disk 3TB. Approx. 1.5tb of data to recover – video files only all stored in 1 folder.
Replacement drive to be supplied by myself – request for data transfer from damaged drive to new drive. I live in Huddersfield and work in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

I brought a new 320 gb external sonics hard drive but i dropped it and it started marking strange motor sticking sounds like it wont start, it shows about over 3GBs on EaseUs But wont find anything when i search on it. I had the same thing done to my Sandisk Usb stick the long black one it it fell hard while it was in the old laptop it shows no data i think i tried formating it but it show Mbs instead of GB’s lol would you be able to recover data on these and how much would it cost?

About 5 years ago one of my young children stood on my laptop bag and managed to damage the hard drive in my laptop. It does not boot at all so I took it out and chucked laptop but have kept the hard drive all these years. It has all my children’s baby pics and always meant to get around to trying to get it fixed so I could recover them. Hoping you guys will be able to advise in whether data is retrievable or not, thanks.

A 3.5 inch ~600GB drive which is reporting physical sector damage. Although bootable (XP OS), any attempt to recover sectors, e.g. chkdsk /r /f , is failing. This is also true of a sector-by-sector ‘cloning’ to a new secondary onboard hard drive.

The computer with the Kingstone disc was working fine, it had only a couple of years. One day the screen came out with the error 1962 saying “no operating system found. Press any key to repeat boot sequence.” However nothing happened apart from same error popping out. Tried to connect to check, however no data was found. Would you be able to help and how much would that cost?

1tb western digital elements hard drive – diagnosed by a local repair shop as having a mechanical error which is beyond their capabilities.

My external hard drive is not being picked up by my laptop. it is making a buzzing sound intermediately.

I have a Seagate back up portable drive (Model: SRD00F1) and I am able to view the device on my windows laptop but I am not able to see the deivce in the folders window. I had some IT folks look at this at work and tried on other laptop but have the same problem. It is suggested may be an issue with connection between the hardrive itself and the connection.

A few years ago when we purchased a new pc we moved a serial ATA drive from the old pc to the new just to keep the data and for use as a secondary drive. It is now unreadle and we need the data retoring to a new similar drive

Hard Drive Recovery Sierra Leone

My name is James and I am the founder of Laughter Africa, a charity for street children in Sierra Leone. The charity laptop died on Monday. My mum and dad’s IT guy has got me a new hard drive and the laptop is working again but he couldn’t extract the information off the old hard drive-he said there is a mechanical fault on the hard drive itself. He’s reccommended you. I was just wondering if you would be able to fix it and how much it may be? Do you offer charity discounts? Don’t worry if not, but just thought that I would ask. I am flying back to Sierra Leone in the next few weeks so was also wondering how long it would take? If you could get back to me asap then that would be great.

Western Digital 1TB External Hard Drive, WDT-D2C (B). According to the opinion of two technicians, the data of my hard disk would be recoverable in clean room, because they would act of a mecanic problem (head of reading or other breakdown). The hard drive runs noiselessly, but the computer does not detect it anymore.
The hard disk contains Word, Exel, Pdf, Tiff and Jpeg image files and numerous audio files.
Audio files do not matter, so their recovery is not necessary.
The 1TB hard drive is occupied by about 700 Gb whose audio files represent about 150 Gb.
I evaluate the files to recover at about 400 Gb.

I have an external HDD that I normally use for PS4 I own and the connection of the actual HDD itself is loose and almost pulls out completely when removing the cable, also sounds like there maybe rattling inside, problem is don’t see no way possible of getting inside it so not sure what to do on getting inside it.

I have a Samsung HD753LJ HDD which failed to spin up after I transfered it to a new PC. I have a replacement PCB for it and the dive now spins up but it wont read the disk, I understand that I have to swap the rom chip from the old PCB to the new one, is this somthing you can do?

With all these hard drive problems my recommendation is the Data Recovery Tips website at http://data-recovery-tips.co.uk/. As Sierra Leone is a long way from the UK, you can follow the information on the Data Recovery Tips web site and attempt to recover the data yourself, or if you’d like someone else to do it for you, complete the contact form and they’ll get in touch with you.
