Lost Data

Experiencing Data Loss of cherished computer data files is more than a mild inconvenience, often this data has huge sentimental value or would require hours of work to re-do. Data Loss is an information system error on your computer hard drive. File data is destroyed by neglect or system failure in the storage, processing state or transmission. Information systems implement regular restore point backups to assist in file system corruption, and operating systems have processes to prevent data loss and software to restore or salvage lost file data. There can be various reasons for this loss of computer file data with the most common being hardware failure or human error. Other reasons could include:

  • Intentional or accidental deletion of a file or program.
  • Misplacement of External Hard Drive, USB, CD's, Memory Sticks or other type of data storage device.
  • Administration or Human error.
  • Operating system inability to read unknown file format
  • Power failure resulting in volatile memory data not being saved to permanent memory.
  • Hardware failure, for example a head crash in a hard disk
  • Software crash or freeze, meaning data cannot be saved.
  • Software bugs
  • Business failure (bankruptcy), where data is stored with a software vendor who ceases trading
  • Data corruption, database corruption, or file system corruption.
  • Natural disaster, like flood or fire.
  • Theft, hacking, SQL injection, sabotage, worm, virus, hacker or theft of physical media.

    We strongly advise against trying to solve the problem yourself to salvage data if the files are irreplaceable. The longer the damaged drive is on, the greater the chances of further damage occur and the reduction of file recovery is possible. We strongly recommend using a professional data recovery service, in our cleanroom Data recovery lab service area we use a data recovery technique called MFSTM (Magnetic Force Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy) to rescue disc data. Disk Partition Recovery is best performed by an expert rather than a Recovery utility program or free file recovery software. In cases of accidental deletion of files, we use sophisticated Undeletion techniques to recover your data.


    We also provide a computer forensics expert service for recovery of Crypto-shredded, encrypted, hidden file or hidden directory which can occur in virus attacks or ransomware.


    Stages of Data Recovery

    These are the four main phases of successful Data recovery, depending on the type of data corruption and hard drive damage.


    Phase 1

    Repair the hard drive to get it operational in some capacity so the data is readable. This may required parts to be fixed, repaired or replaced.


    Phase 2


    Prevent further loss of data by creating an identical image of the failed hard disk drive. To preserve the source drive which can be copied again if required, the copy is worked on instead. This is a crucial part of the data recovery process in ensuring Data preservation of the files and Data curation.


    Phase 3


    The Data archaeology is scanned for cross-linked files, which are FAT files created when a computer is improperly shut down. The data salvaging process is essentially file carving to establish error detection and correction, and begins with logical recovery of data files by investing route cause. The aim is to attempt repair of the partition table or master boot record (MBR) to read the file systems data structure, essential in the retrieval of stored data.


    Phase 4


    Reconstruct the drive sector to make the data readable. Corrupted data can then be recovered or reconstructed and moved to a new data source device.

    Hard Drive Recovery in London

    Our most frequent Data Recovery services are related to failed, corrupted or damaged External/Portable or Internal Hard Drives.  Hard Disk Drive (HDD) have been around since 1956 as the secondary storage device for computers, until the recent introduction of the solid-state drives (SSD) which has higher data-transfer rates and storage density, and better reliability. Hard Drives are non-volatile electromechanical data storage devices, which retain stored data even with no power. This means that in event of system failure, malfunction, accidental damage or deletion, it is still possible to salvage the data files by partitioning them away from the OS system files.

    Photo Recovery

    Photo Data Recovery and Picture Recovery can be required on Mobile Phones, USB Flash Drives, Memory Sticks or SD Card Recovery, but can also include backup photo files on hard-drives. We have successfully recovered photos with SD card data recovery in cases of damage, corruption and accidental deletion. Please note that due to file system fragmentation, on average 16% of JPEGs are fragmented. This means that free photo recovery software is more likely to recover partially or appear corrupt. Our methods give a higher chance of full recovery but fragmentation can still occur.
