This post we look at some customer submitted questions regarding broken phones and dead hard drives. Do you have a problem similar to this? Follow the links for useful advice

broken phonemy LG G4 died and needs to be replaced. Before doing that, I would like to recover what is saved on the hard drive. Could you give me an approximate idea of how much that might cost me?
I’d be grateful for a response via email as my broken phone is the matter of this inquiry and I’m therefore not able to use it for phone calls.

apple iPhone stuck in re boot mode……..need addresses and photos recovering.

Toshiba hard drive broke, I bought a new one and swapped the read write needle but now it’s making a ticking noise and a squeakin noise, also my computer will not recognise it. Can you get the data from the disk?
Do you offer a postal service, I live in Oxford or do you have a local contact in Oxford.

I need to transfer some Microsoft Word files fro a 3.5 inch, double sided, high density 2.0 MB floppy disk. Do you provide this service?

My 64GB normal SD Kingston card became unreadable for both of my computers. I’ve got very important files on it and I’afraid I might lose them. Do you provide any student prices for our services?

An old 2008 Samsung R510 with a 500GB SATA HDD. That HDD must already replaced from the OEM 160GB HDD. (and yet they do not do back-ups –> tsk, tsk.)
Drive does not boot inside the R510 but clicks, and stutters, etc. I was able to mount the drive via USB external drive caddy and read file structure, and copy some files to my MacBook via but the pictures directory is the one they are after and it has 5,000+ across 28 directories. (about 30-40 GB)
I believe they need your services if they want those pictures.
If I try to copy the photos in bulk it copies a few and then times out on pictures and it gives up.
I did not look at the spec, but I assume it is seagate or western digital HDD.
What is the procedure to deal with this and assumed cost so I can pass it on?
Then they can put this episode behind them, and learn to do backups.
Thanks for your help. They are in Dover… but I have friends in Ashford… so dropping off is not a problem.

External hardrive contains a backup of my MAC hardrive which no longer works. Tried to copy over backup to my new laptop and it was not working. Hardrive not showing up in Finder but will show in Disk Utility. Possibly corrupted?

I have external Seagate FreeAgent Goflex SN.NA0B2DH2 hard disk. My Hard Disk doesn’t detect on any system ,however I had given it to one of the local shop to check and his conclusion was that it has a start up problem, and needs to be sent to professional .I would like to know the cost of your services and how to go about it.

WD Passport Ultra 2TB USB3 External HD
Device dropped flat from a height of approx 120cm
Unfortunately, attempted to determine if damage to data occurred by connecting it in and the device was not recognized – not even as an unknown device.
The platters did appear to spin up, as vibration/humming could be felt and was audible
Disconnected when a “zap” was heard, similar to when an external HD resets or is having power failures
