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.

Hi Helen, I don't know what is happening with my account but I want to retrieve my data off a 1TB external hard drive with MAC formatting. The most important thing to me is the photos. I have had Jim's IT look at it and they tried 7-8 different software programs and couldn't get the data off so recommended that I try Payam. The power goes to the hard drive and it clicks as if it wants to load something. I am in Melton West and not very far from your location at all. Please HELP!

Dropped my external hard disk drive (HDD) by accident. The hard disk is now not being detected although can hear some sounds coming out (like whirrs but nothing like the normal spinning sound) of the HDD and the light is on. The hard disk has photos only which I would like to recover. Hard disk details: 4TB Seagate Expansion+ Model: SRD0NF1

My 2TB hard drive no longer mounts on my Mac computer, and is beeping. I can't hear the disk spinning when I plug it in, or see it on my computer (even when I check disk utility). I would like to get all the files recovered. I live in Footscray, how much would this cost? What is the average success rate, and are you within my 5km radius? Thanks, Elizabeth

I have a seagate 2TB external hard drive that I dropped about a month and a half ago. Am looking to get these files recovered. Have another brand new hard drive available for file transfer. There is about 700gb of footage on the hard drive. I know the names of the files that I specifically want recovered, if all aren’t salvageable. Thanks

My Western Digital WD Mybook (starting with WDBFJK) cannot be accessed due to WD security. I was setting the auto-unlock feature and the hard disk no longer unlocks with the password. The disk needs to be unlocked so data can be accessed. I have tried different combinations of passwords just in case of typo or CAPS-lock but have been unable to unlock. I need someone to unlock the hard drive. I am flexible with date/time

WD portable drive with over 3TB of music & films. Still reads OK on screen but occasional knocking sound seems to interrupt communication- making it difficult to transfer data. I’m guessing that the drive will need some repair or stabilising before that data can be transferred without error. Can anyone quote on extracting the data and transferring to my new HD? Price negotiable. Thanks.
