Top Data Recovery related questions

What are some common reasons for deleted files or lost data?

Accidental overwriting and formatting are two common causes of deleted or lost files, but they aren’t the only culprits. Data loss also happens because of faulty systems, physical damage (like spills), and viruses.

How do you recover lost data?

This depends on the make, model, and operating system. Your data recovery expert will evaluate and diagnose the problem and, in most cases, recover the data using specialist software.

Is file recovery always possible?

To give yourself the best chance of getting your files back, it’s important to unplug your drive and stop using the device. File recovery isn’t always possible, but this combined with booking an expert data recovery service will help.

Do data recovery professionals need any specific qualifications or skills?

Many data recovery professionals hold qualifications in computer science and IT or have industry certifications to become a recognised data recovery professional.

How long does data recovery take?

Simple data recovery tasks can be completed in a day. But if there’s a lot of data or severe damage, a week or longer is more likely. Your data recovery expert will give you a time estimate during the evaluation stage.

How much does data recovery cost?

Data recovery services usually cost $60-$150 when you hire through Airtasker, but it could cost more or less. Your data recovery expert will calculate a flat-rate fee based on the complexity of the project and time needed.

What does a file recovery service include?

DIY-ing your data recovery is risky. Accidental overwrites, formatting and further damage to the device makes data recovery especially difficult. (And possibly more expensive.) The first step: get your device in the hands of an IT expert. Here are some of the devices and common problems your data recovery expert can help with:

Hard disk drives (HDD)

Hard drives are prone to physical damage and system errors. Whether it’s an external hard drive or the one inside your computer, the internal moving parts mean over time they wear out and degrade in performance. Hearing clicking or whirring noises? There could be physical damage, so your data recovery expert will use a precision screwdriver to repair the motor and hard drive heads. Seeing error messages or experiencing power problems? A system fault or virus may need fixing. Your techie might first try installing recovery software onto your computer. Or they could remove the actual hard drive from the case or computer and use a SAS/SATA to USB adapter to access and recover your files that way.

USB memory sticks

When your flash drive stops working or isn’t recognised by your computer (even when you’ve given it a wiggle) the problem could be faulty connectors, a bad computer USB port or something more serious like a virus. To recover your files, your data recovery technician will first test the memory stick by plugging it into a different computer or USB port. If this doesn’t work, they may use small screwdrivers and pliers to straighten out the connectors. If the damage isn’t physical, checks are made to identify a reason for corruption. This often involves recovery software, which can also help with deleted file recovery if anything has gone walkabout.

Solid-state drives (SSD)

SSD file recovery isn’t easy, because it relies on electrical components to save and retrieve data. When these go bad, it’s very difficult to recover files. But not impossible. Your data recovery expert will ensure a technology called TRIM isn’t enabled. To do this, they will use special recovery software and commands for SSD devices. If they can’t recover your files this way, your drive is sent to a forensic data recovery lab for further investigation, restoration, and data extraction. Be aware, though - this can be expensive.

Phone and smart devices

Need to retrieve messages, photos, numbers, and videos from your phone’s internal memory? Depending on the type of damage your phone has suffered, it may be salvageable. If your phone still switches on, your IT expert will first try downloading specific apps for data recovery. If this isn’t an option, they’ll plug your phone or device into a computer via USB for further debugging and file extraction.

I need my hard drive data recovered after factory reset, the computer currently doesn’t turn on due to charging issues. It is a 2013 MacBook Pro.

Could not more highly recommend Vidhin for complex data recovery. I had a very old laptop (2013 model) Mac book pro that wouldn’t turn on and had been factory reset (ie. all data deleted permanently) so I couldnt access any of my data. Vidhin was able to recover all my data. He was very responsive with open communication the whole time. He also went out of his way to purchase me an external hard drive and put all the data onto it. He explained everything in detail to me and picked up and delivered my computer to my front door. Excellent high quality service - thanks Vidhin!

iPhone 12 Pro screen became unresponsive on Friday. Tried hard resetting. That didn't fix it. Phone still worked, but screen did not respond to touch. Over the weekend, Apple tried reinstalling the iOS and did 3 screen replacements, but now the screen is black and I still can't unlock the phone. The phone has images and video that have not been backed up since early October. Looking to get that downloaded off the phone, so I can get them back. I don't need the phone repaired. I would just like to get the data off it. Once that is done, I will need to take the phone back to Apple for an exchange for a new phone. Thanks in advance, Erik

Great guy, super helpful. Thanks man.
