Northampton Data Recovery

My 4TB Seagate hard drive was set up to send to an NAS system over a weekend and when I came to look at what had happened, the hard drive was clicking/whirring and failing to get up to speed. One of the IT technicians at my work said that he thought it was that the head was stuck and that he could release the head and then copy the data onto a new drive as it would not be reliable to use after this repair, but would be able to copy most, if not all, the data. However, the disk has not been able to get up to speed and still whirrs and clicks.
I’m after a data recovery company in the Northampton area that can look at this and give me a list of the files on the hard drive so I can see if the NAS received them all. It has lots of folders but I’m unsure of how many files went into each folder before the problem happened.
The hard drive is partitioned too – ExFat and NTFS, not sure if this makes a difference. The office is located in Kettering but I don’t mind travelling to the Northampton clinic (phone 01604 529 356) to get the data recovered if this is what is required.

I’m wanting a Northampton data recovery service from Monday to Friday, because at the weekend I travel to Liverpool. I live in the Horton House area of the centre of Liverpool so if the hard drive data recovery clinic in Northampton isn’t open on Saturday / Sunday I’ll have the files recovered at the clinic in Exchange Flags, Horton House, Liverpool (0151 268 5255)

I have a Seagate Back up plus (2TB) which dropped onto a wood floor.
There is no visible damage except wear and tear from be carried around.

Liverpool Data Recovery

External disk fell on the floor at my Liverpool house. It was opened by an expert and they said it needs to be repaired as there is a structural damage that needs sorting prior to retrieving the data. When I plug it to laptop, there is a sound of a loop/trying to start it up while it never picks data up. How much would it cost to repair it?

Have an ADATA HD710 External Hard Drive. The connector port has broken off and fallen inside the case. My photos are stored on the disc. Can you recover them? – I want to bring the hard drive into Northampton.

Took it to local pc repair shop and they tried to install in new desktop at my request nothing responding so put in a silver bag for me as I need all files (work, photos, music, folders etc) until I could find a decent hard disk repair or data retrieval at a decent price I can afford. I already went for a quote and it was extremely expensive £300! Single mom just starting in business in Northampton not a lot of income so thought I’d see who else was out there

Dropped WD hard drive, plugged in to see if it would work. Not showing up on laptop, but when I pull the cable out it says it wasn’t ejected. It has all of my work on it, please let me know if you might be able to help.

There is an error message showing and I want to try to recover some photos. PC World Northampton have looked at it but could not do anything. They suggested an advanced recovery.

I dropped my 2TB WD Elements drive on tiled floor. Casing popped off a little and was pushed back on. When connected to laptop the light came on and can hear whirring and clicking. Laptop can’t read or see the drive. I’m currently away from my Liverpool Merseyside home so email would be better than phone.

Liverpool Data Recovery

without comments

Here are a selection of enquiries for data recovery from hard drive and mobile phones from people and business living in the Liverpool and Merseyside areas. These data recoveries were dealt with by the people at Data Clinic, Horton House, Exchange Street East, Liverpool L2 3PF. https://www.dataclinic.co.uk/data-recovery-liverpool/

Data Recovery in Woolton
I looking for help with a data recovery issue I’m having with my hard drive. I live in Woolton, Merseyside and when plugged in the light on the hard drive comes on. It makes a noise but similar or the same to normal. It is used a lot to edit off on a daily basis but has not received a knock as far as I am aware. I notice there is a data recovery location for Data Clinic in Liverpool city centre at Horton House. I can take the hard drive into there and have the files recovered.

Broken Seagate drive in Allerton
I have a 1TB Seagate Expansion Portable Drive (1TEAP5-500).
The drive was working fine, it hadn’t moved from my desk (barely moved an inch) and was connected to the computer regularly. Then it started clicking when my computer started up. It would do this for maybe 1 minute and stop. I’ve then get a popup on my Computer saying the drive couldn’t be read.
All this just a few months after buying the drive from a computer shop in Liverpool. I come from Allerton and that’s where I live now. I spoke to Seagate in Aigburth, Liverpool but they weren’t much help and wouldn’t acknowledge the shoddy build – which I guess why would they!
Do you think the data is recoverable and if so, what would the ballpark cost be/turnaround?

Hard drive recovery in Cressington
We are and IT company in the Liverpool district of Cressington and we’ve got the following error message on bootup: EFI network 0 for ipv6 on a Lenovo G50-30 laptop.
As suggested after a local Google search for Liverpool data recovery companies, I know there’s a place on Exchange Flags, Liverpool L2 3PF for a company called Data Clinic, I power drained the laptop and removed and remitted the BED. Same error 🙁
Would appreciate an estimate of cost to recover files from BED (photos of kids) plus other advice on way forward.

Mossley Hill HDD Recovery
I am based in Mossley Hill Liverpool and work in Childwall – I hope you can help with my HDD data recovery problem. I am after a replacement actuator arm for a Seagate Backup Plus Slim Hard Drive. Do you have any of these for sale as parts or non functioning hard drives to buy?

The above data recovery enquiries from Woolton, Allerton, Aigburth, Mossley Hill, Cressington and Childwall all involved forensic investigation of hard drives and data recovery services from mobile phones. You can call in at the Horton House data recovery centre in Liverpool L2 3PF.

RAID 5, Seagate, Simpletech data recovery

without comments

RAID 5 disks not working on global hot spare
3 HDD not working out of 24 HDD.
RAID 5 + Global Hot Spare configured
Size: 900 GB * 24

Seagate HDD not identified in Microsoft Explorer
I have a seagate backup plus 1TB portable drive, purchased in October 2017 and used once to backup data by my wife. It is probably less than 10% full.
At first attempt to retrieve the data, today, the drive is not identified in MS explorer but does register as a USB device. The drive makes a clicking or ticking noise.
I’d welcome some guidance as to what I can do to retrieve the data.

Simpletech ticking noise
Simpletech 320GB USB external harddrive. Red light comes on when connected to a PC but it just makes a ticking noise and can’t be seen by the computer. It’s probably a mechanical fault.

My external hard drive is a simpletech and is not recognised by any computers and makes a dodgy sound. Like regular beeps, every 1.5 or 2 seconds. Sometimes the sound stops and then if I turn it off and on again usually the “beeps” will come back. The brand of it is Iomega. I’d love to get it fixed if possible and get the data recovered to a RAID 5 server or a Simpletech hard drive.

Data recovery on Toshiba Canvio hard drive

without comments

I have a 4TB Toshiba Canvio external hard drive that has stopped working. It stopped working when High Sierra OS was introduced, however I had someone look at it who said that the motor has stopped working. Please can you give me a quote for the fixing of this hard drive at all? I’m based in Solihull centre.

My Toshiba Canvio 1TB external hard drive has kind of given up on me. It still boots up with noises and lights but it isn’t showing up on my Macbook. It’s been through the walls after a stressful first year at uni, however I have compositions, films and photos that are crucial to my university projects so I need all of the data extracted and put onto a new external hard drive

The disk is a secondary HD used for photo storage and projects, The board got fried due to hot plugging while using a faulty IDE to SATA converter. I have tried a PCB swap (incl ROM chip swap) but the drive only clicks loudly still and is not recognised by Windows. BIOS will recognise its ID (Toshiba Canvio made in 2014), but reports just 5 GB capacity. I mainly want to retrieve photo and video folders. If possible, I would appreciate an some feedback about possible scenarios and costs based on the above information.

The above examples of Toshiba Canvio hard drive failures are common problems associated with any type of hard drive. In most cases, it’s possible to retrieve the files from a hard drive that is ‘broken’ by using a good data recovery company.

Broken Transcend Storejet – Need to get the data back

without comments

One of the most well known external hard drives in use today is the Transcend Storejet series of hard drives. In case you didn’t know, underneath the cover of all the different external hard drives available are standard hard drives made by Seagate, Western Digital or Toshiba. So really, all you’re buying is a pretty case and some packaging, but anyway there you go… So in this post we look at two instances of problems with Transcend Storejet hard drives requiring data / file recovery. Data recovery from this type of hard drive will usually cost in the region of £500.

Transcend StorejetI own a Transcend Storejet 25M3 1TB external hard drive. It is still functional but due to an accident the connection port for the device is damaged and the cable doesn’t lock into place (I have tried other cables). This results in the hard drive disconnecting with the slightest nudge or movement and/or a periodic freeze in data transfer of approximately +30 seconds every 10-20 mins. Can you fix this? If so How much would it cost me? – I live in Derby and frequently travel to Sheffield.

I am a video editor. Yesterday I was working on a project and the external HDD (a Storejet, made by Transcend) started to act weird when I was exporting 2 clips using 2 different softwares (on mac by the way). Afterwards I restated the laptop and the hdd was a bit slower to load all the files. I opened the hdd folder and I could see all my projects, in some of them I could see the content (jpg, mov) and in others it kept loading without showing any file. Also it takes ages to eject it. hope this help.

Photos lost after wipe and reinstall of windows 7. Everything else was backed up but the photos were forgotten. Recuva failed to find the files. 750gb mech drive (not ssd). I work in Sheffield and sometimes travel to Glasgow.

I dropped my external hard drive from like 40cm height on a hard floor. My computer can’t recognise it anymore now. The hard drive makes noises when plugged in to the computer.

At a certain point and for no apparent reason the Storejet drive ceased to be read or acknowledged by my mac or any other mac, but still turns on when plugged in. The presence of the drive could still be recognised by PCs but of course they cannot open or access the contents.
It has been connected to a computer several times since this happened.

Data Recovery on Acer Aspire

without comments

I knocked my Acer Aspire V5-573 off a table and the hard drive now makes clicks and takes me to a ‘default boot device missing or boot failed’ screen. And is then stuck on boot manager menu. I am thinking of buying a new laptop but I would like to be able to extract my documents first. Can I come to the London shop on Monday?

I have just downloaded windows 10 onto my hard drive and without realising deleted everything else from it. I had videos and photos stored on this hard drive from 2007 – present. Is there anyway that these can be recovered? I am in Manchester next week which is why I’m wanting to come to the London data recovery centre you mentioned in this post.

I used a Maxtor HX-M101TCB/GMR portable hard drive with my Acer Aspire laptop to store recordings from a Philips Freeview box which reformatted the portable drive and then died. The Maxtor isn’t recognised by my PC anymore but we would like to reuse it for my daughter’s college work. Is there any way to recover use of the hard drive and how much would that cost? I am not terribly concerned about saving the tv recordings on the hard drive, we would just like to be able to use the portable drive again.

I’ve got a Lacie 80GB hard drive which contains lots of family photos. The hard drive is quite old now, about 13 years and uses FireWire connections. I’ve tried connecting it to my iMac with a USB FireWire adaptor but the hard drive just shows an amber light and will not connect to the iMac and will not show in the Finder view. I need to get the data back on a Acer Aspire hard drive too.

Computer Data Recovery in Brighton

without comments

I have a Seagate Backup Plus Portable Drive 1TB, model: SRD0SP0.
When I connect it to the laptop it makes a fast beeping sound and is not recognised by the laptop. I think the head is not in the parking area but I don’t know how to open it up to see. I have A LOT of data on there and I’m starting to panic. USB Drive won’t open and comes up with the message:
Location is not available
F:\ is not accessible.
The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. It’s a home drive and I live just on the outskirts of Brighton, (between Hove and Lewes)

Brighton uk

I have a Macbook Pro, model no. A1278. Issue is that it switches itself off half way through the boot up. You can hear the initial chime sound and apple logo with the progress bar appears on the dispay. When the start up progress reaches around half way, the laptop shuts itself down. Therefore I am unable to acces to my laptop and recover the data. Please could you adive on this matter and give me quotation on how much this is going to cost me to fully recover the data from this laptop.

I’ve just dropped down my external hard disc and after that I can’t open it on any computer. I can hear knocking or ticking noise when the drive is powered on. It 500GB Buffalo Inc that I bought from a computer shop in Brighton
Model HD-PVU2.

Hard Drive recently started disconnecting while using my computer and started clicking on startup.The boot is paused while the device clicks but once it stops, the boot continues but no hard drive shows up in my computer, device manager or disk manager. Got some important information I was wanting to copy over to a secondary hard drive I own but lack of connections mean that I can’t do anything. I’ve tried all 6 sata ports on the mo/bo to no avail and at this point I don’t think there’s much I can do anymore.

A Data Recovery Adventure in Scotland – Part 1

without comments

Exposed Hard Disk DriveThis New Year I found myself in Edinburgh, and a very fair city it is too. It had been 12 months since my extended family had been gathered together in one place – it’s something we do each New Year, so packed my case and travelled up north of the border.

Accompanying me on the trip was my trusty 2TB external hard drive. This thing is totally invaluable and stores all my work and music, plus the movies and photos that I was looking forward to showing everyone over the Xmas holiday. I arrived safely on a wet New Years Eve morning and in my haste to get inside and out of the rain managed to accidentally throw my external hard drive from the car. I watched in horror as it flew across the pavement and landed in my parent’s garden. Oh No! I thought, but at least it had landed on the soft grass rather than a hard pavement. I retrieved the hard drive and went inside hoping it would still work.

I plugged the drive into my parent’s Windows computer and all was looking good, I heard the beep-beep noise that you get when you attach a USB device, so far so good. I then got an error message telling me the hard drive could no longer be read and asking me whether I wanted to format the drive. I said Yes. Several minutes later I got another message saying the process had failed. Uh-oh… what do I do now I thought…

My father told me a friend of theirs had recently had a hard disk problem too. He said they had to use a data recovery company to get the data off the hard drive but couldn’t remember the name of the company. A phone call later he told me the data recovery company was called Datlabs. But they weren’t in Edinburgh they were in Glasgow. Could we not use a company in Edinburgh I asked? He told me that his friend had done exactly the same thing but the the company in Edinburgh were not very good and he got the impression that they didn’t know what they were doing.

I agreed we should then follow my father’s friend’s recommendation and drive across to Glasgow to see the Datlabs data recovery people. OMG, I’m very glad we did. They were able to look at the hard drive and tell me one of the heads was about to fail. This apparently was bad, they said there was probably only a limited amount of time before the drive failed completely and recommended they get the data from it ASAP…. To Be Continued

Broken Hard Drives Still Contain Recoverable Data !

without comments

When you store important information on a hard disk drive, you take the chance of losing that information because hard disk drives can break for a variety of different reasons. If you’re not computer literate, losing data on a hard drive can be difficult because you don’t know what to do to recover your data. Fortunately, there are companies that can help you get that data back. These are known as data recovery companies and they can retrieve data from nearly any type of hard drive in any type of condition. So when you find yourself in a situation where you have lost valuable information you should not assume that this data can not be retrieved.

Hard drive with cover removed.There are some companies that specialise in repairing damaged hard drives. In the process of retrieving your data, theses data recovery companies can also repair your hard disk. Types of the problems data recovery companies can repair include broken boards, mechanical hard drive faults such as the ‘click of death’ and beeping hard drives. A recommended company in the UK are RAID and Server Data Recovery – you would use a hard drive recovery company when your local IT provider can no longer help you.

Sometimes when there is no damage to the hard disk, software programs can be used to help you retrieve your data by yourself. There are usually trial versions available on the internet that will tell you what they can and can’t recover first. If you decide you want to recover the data they find you’ll have to buy the program which usually costs several pounds. But at least it will get your data back for you. A word of caution though, what may at first appear to be a simple hard drive problem may be something far more serious and trying to recover the data yourself may cause many more problems. So if in doubt, you should always seek professional help as there could be problems inside your disk that prevent it from working properly.

Remember that just because your hard disk breaks or the information on it seems to have disappeared, this doesn’t mean that the data is lost forever. Skilled data retrieval companies that can find and rescue lost data on a damaged hard drive. In the process of restoring the data, the hard drive problems that caused the data to go missing in the first place will be fixed. This is helpful because it insures that it won’t happen again.
