RAID Data Recovery – A review of Data Clinic Bury, Manchester

without comments

I had a Synology 5 disk nas (raid5). With 2 problem hdd’s one had failed and the second was full of errors. I needed a RAID data recovery service – ideally in Manchester or somewhere in the North West. The data on the RAID was critical and I needed to get the files back. I knew of a Data Clinic in Bury at the Pavilions, Bridge Hall Lane, Greater Manchester and decided to take my RAID 5 nas in for data recovery.

The service I received was wonderful and they succeeded in recovering all my files from the Synology server. 5 stars for Data Clinic’s RAID data recovery team in Bury.

Synology Diskstation and Smartphone data recovery

without comments

samsung a40 smartphoneSamsung Galaxy A40 smartphone data recovery
Samsung Galaxy A40 smartphone, 2yrs old. Screen went green and then black yesterday. No obvious accident to account for the fault. Have changed SIM into a new handset but as I can’t access the lock screen i have no way of extracting the data on the mobile. I wish to recover the photographs and videos and contacts only. I live in Southampton and notice you have an office there.

Power problem on hard drive
Pretty sure I just zapped my storage HDD while doing some case management. That’s a 4TB Seagate. I also have two much older dead drives which I’ve been meaning to send to a recovery service to see if anything can be salvaged, but I have no idea what’s wrong with those any more. If you could quote me for one drive with a power issue and two with an unknown issue I’d be very grateful.

iPhone 8 water damagediphone 8
I have a badly broken and water damaged iphone8 that won’t switch on at all and I’m hoping to have the data recovered from it if possible. Can you tell me if it is possible that you can repair the badly damaged phone, is there a good chance you should be able to recover app data, specifically I’m really interested in recovering Viber messages and WhatsApp messages please? Are these specific app messages usually able to be recovered have you found previously? I’ve heard that Data Clinic provide iPhone data recovery services in the UK – please help to rescue my files.

Synology Diskstation data recovery
Synology Diskstation DS212j fitted with 2x WD Red 2.0TB drives and configured using the Synology Hybrid Raid (SHR) type. DSM version 6.2.4
System crashed recently and I’ve been unable to rectify myself. I’m pretty sure the hard drives are physically OK.
Having searched the Synology help I tried initiating a reinstall of DSM, as the info I found suggested that this would maintain my data. I managed to start the process but noticed in the prompts for the processes that it would format the data partition – at this point I did panic and shut the diskstation down manually to interrupt the process while it was formatting the system partition.
Please can you advise what recovery services you might be able to offer?
I am based in Leeds and work about half a mile away from your Leeds location on Gelderd Road and so could drop it off in person.

WD My Passport external hard drive
My WD My Passport external hard drive has developed issues registering on my computer (“device descriptor request failed”). I’m near to Coventry so I suppose the nearest Data Clinic office is in Leicester ? The hard drive contains a back up of all of of my personal photos, videos etc. as well as important documents, therefore I need to ensure that all of my files are safe, as it’s my only back-up. Would it be possible to please provide a quote and soonest possible timings for repair/recovery? I have purchased a replacement (empty) hard drive which can be used to store recovered files, if needed. Ideally it would be fantastic if this could be achieved by the end of October, but please let me know what’s possible.

Sony Xperia XZ3 phone data recovery

without comments

Phone data recovery

You have been recommended to me by a friend who has an IT company, who has used you previously in Liverpool
Just wondering if you could help me with my iPhone which is completely damaged (suspected dropped and run over by a car).
I can’t get it connect to a laptop but I didn’t know whether this is because I can’t press approve on the damaged screen or if it just isn’t connecting. When plugged in to charge it does get hot, but again I don’t know if this is due to the battery being damaged or because it’s trying to power up the damaged screen – I’m presuming the former.
Unfortunately it isn’t backed up due to my laptop being old and not being able to download the latest iTunes etc.
Apple have said they could attempt to fix it but have said they would factory reset it and lose everything off it, so I’m looking for someone that could help recover everything off the phone.
Thinking mainly all the photos & videos but as much as possible / everything off there would be great.
I believe it could be taken apart and the ‘hard drive’ isolated / fixed to retrieve the data and I’m hoping this could be the case.
I’d really appreciate if you could let me know if you think this is possible and any associated costs or details please? Also where are you located in Liverpool?

Data recovery on Sony Xperia

Sony Xperia XZ3I have a Sony Xperia XZ3 which just died on me one morning. It had a habit of freezing every now and then (I’d had it over 2 years) so I reset it by holding the volume key and power button. It was on charge at this point, and usually it does the shutting down process but the screen just went blank and the charge indicator disappeared. I tried to turn it back on with no avail, it was just blank and dead.
I had a spare phone so removed the SIM and switched devices and realize the phone didn’t have a memory card in it so all of my pictures and videos from the last 2 1/2 years are lost.
My husband took my phone to a phone shop to see if they could repair it. They tried replacing the battery, it didn’t work. They asked to send it off to their specialist’s but they were unsuccessful in getting the phone to power up. They had tried directly powering the phone by bypassing the battery but with no joy. Specialist’s have said the phone is not salvageable and the only option to recover the data would be to go down the chip-off recovery option. Is this something you could help with please? Like everyone, my pictures and videos are precious memories to me. They’re the memories of my girl’s being born, my Nan, my little girl’s first steps. I’m so annoyed with myself for not having a memory card in, or backing up the data. ( I didn’t realize android’s could back up for some daft reason.) I don’t care if the phone is not salvageable, I just want the images and videos back.

Samsung tablet recovery

My samsung tablet recently died and am am unable to access any of my data. i have tried everything including taking it for repairs. for now the only thing am interested in is the data on my Tab. I have read of the great work you do and i would really appreciate if you help me out.

Bristol and Leicester Data Recovery

without comments

WD Elements doesn’t fire / spin up
My WD ELEMENTS DESKTOP 1TB external hard drive will no longer fire up / spin and is not recognised by any PC. I am looking to recover family photos in particular and am based in Leicester. I can call into Data Clinic on St George’s Way Leicester if that helps?

Both my laptop and my external hard drive appear to have issues. I have stopped using the laptop but need to remove the information but it has basically just completely stopped – possibly from over use? The external hard drive has only just started to haev problems, it si a WD passport and clicks and whirs when I plug it in and isnt detected on my windows laptop. This is recent but it contains a lot of vital information.

Leicester

WD External recovery needed
I have an external hard drive (model: WD My Passport Red/Mudder Case 1TB) which has predominately image files saved on it. I live just outside Bristol and believe Data Clinic have a data recovery office at Castlemead?
The hard drive is not being recognised when plugging in, regardless if plugged into a mac or windows laptop.
The hard drive didn’t sustain any obvious damage ie broken; water damage etc and stopped working from one day to the other.
I’d appreciate a quote on a possible data recovery.

Seagate in HP Pavilion
I have a Seagate SATA 160GB disk used previously in an HP Pavilion laptop before it broke down. The disk is not recognised and there are some quite sentimental files on there I would like to recover. The disk has been removed from the laptop.

Phone dropped in the Sea
My phone was dropped to the sea about a month ago. I took it to the phone service shop to recover my pictures, but they told me that it is not possible to do it. As you have advaced technology and experienced engineers maybe you would be able to recover my gallery (exact dates: 31/03/2021 and 01/04/2021). I would be very grateful if you would give me any hope.
Please let me know if there are any possibilities and how much it would cost.

Certified Repaired Hard Drive

without comments

This was the second drive in my desktop computer, where I kept my Windows profile. All my data was either in the Windows profile or outside of it, but on this drive. Windows was installed on another drive.

Certified Repaired HDD
One day (a few years ago) this drive started making (clicking) noises, and Windows started giving errors. It still worked, and I copied most of the data to another drive. However for some directories and files it gave errors. When Windows gave errors, the drive would disappear so I had to reboot, then it would be recognized again until I accessed certain data. To eliminate the time consuming process of rebooting I mounted it into an external USB hard drive bay, and I was able to copy most of the (still accessible) data that way.
That is the last known state of the drive. It still probably works but I didn’t want to keep trying to avoid possible degradation.
The label on the HDD states ‘Certified Repaired HDD‘ – by Seagate.

Hard drive freezes
Though my hardrive appears when connected to my laptop, it freezes when trying to open it/access any files and multiple attempts at using disk utility has failed to fix the issue. I believe the problem is multiple bad sectors as the hardrive continually causes programs on my laptop to freeze and thus I have to remove the drive without ejecting, likely causing further bad sectors. The drive came as a certified repaired drive from Seagate, but I have the opinion that it’s not a very good hard drive. I sometimes hear a beep noise too coming from the drive. I’ve tried downloading software to extract the files from the drive but it is so corrupted that it just causes my laptop to freeze. I was wondering if there was any way to retrieve my data and if this is solvable.

I have a seagate go flex drive which we cant access even though we have the passwords etc, it seems the drive has failed. it has our family photos on it, approx 1.7 gb of data [not 100% of how much is on there]. would you be able to retrieve the data? also what would be the costs?

Seagate Backup Plus external driver dropped. Makes beeping sound when trying to power up and not recognised by computer. Windows USB sound made but no drive available. Power light on HDD doesn’t come on either. Email only please, at work so can’t answer phone.

Please avoid ‘Certified Repaired’ hard drives, they are not up to the standard of brand new hard drives.

Help with Samsung A50 Phone and WD HDD on Disk Manager

without comments

Samsung A50 phoneIn this post we discuss saving photos from a broken Samsung A50 phone and a Western Digital Elements hard drive that is not showing up on Disk Manager.

Need help saving photos on a Samsung A50 phone
Before I broke the display on my Samsung A50 phone, I had a fingerprint and a template, but after changing the display, only the template I don’t remember remained. I asked at Samsung services but they said that factory settings are needed. Is there any chance you can help me remove the template or at least save my photos?

WD Element not showing on disk manager
This drive came from a WD Element external drive which I took out to use internally (this was a while ago). During a power surge, related to a faulty USB hub, this particular hard drive decided to not show up on disk manager. I then decided to disconnect it and reconnect it externally via a SATA-to-USB interface. Windows is not seeing any data on these partition, even though the drive was almost full, and prompts me to format (which I didn’t). The drive seems to be healthy and functional. There is a lot of important data on this hard drive and I need the folder structure to be preserved for the data to be useful.

Intel Boot Agent – Need data recovery

without comments

500GB 2.5″ Seagate laptop HDD has failed. Laptop wouldn’t boot up, and was presenting the Intel Boot Agent. Tested the hard drive in another laptop and had the same issue. Have tried using a USB to SATA to see if the data could be transferred off of the drive, but this was unsuccessful. The drive wasn’t spinning at all when plugged in.

There seems to be an issue with the USB port on my ‘my passport’ WD hard drive. It often does not stay connected to the laptop. The hard drive works as normal when in very specific positions but looses connectivity if it gets moved slightly. Now it’s stopped working and I when i boot up the computer I get the Intel boot agent screen come on. I do not know what I need to do next – can you help me? I want to retrieve my data.

Intel Boot Agent screen

I am a photography student and ALL my entire work collection is on my hard drive and it won’t show up and my computer not longer boots. I have tried a variety of agents, leads, restarting my computer but nothing shows! 🙁 please please advise what i can do to recover my files as i don’t have back ups. I am devastated. I can come into the shop tomorrow as I need the files back urgently as i have so many deadlines coming up.

Advice: There are a lot of data recovery companies mentioned in this blog who can assist you in recovering your files if you are seeing the Inte Boot Agent screen – for recommendations, go to the homepage of this blog.

Memory Card data recovery

without comments

An event has been captured on a digital camera, the images saved straight onto a 32gb sd memory card.
Approximately 300 Images were copied over to a mac book laptop after the event. or so we thought.
In actual fact, in the destination folder on the laptop, only 250 of them successfully copied, as for the rest, they are ‘greyed-out’, when they are clicked to open, a error message states, ‘this file can not be opened as it is in use by another program’.
-There is no other program opened with the images in use.
-The original 32GB SD memory has been formatted since. then another event was shot and saved onto this same memory.
Please let me know if you can help, if your service comes with a no data, no fee policy and what your price is for a job of this nature.

Card is an XQD card (possibly Sony), which has been accidentally formatted. Nothing written to it since, they ran some Sony device checking app over the card which could ‘see’ some files but could not access or recover them (customer assures me nothing overwritten). She will need to get authorisation but thinks they might go for Priority and get this overnighted to us themselves. They would also provide RM and an adaptor/reader (I don’t think we have seen this format before and none of our readers seem to mention it )

Hard drive recovery

without comments

In this post we focus on hard drive recovery, what it is, how it works and the leaders in the data recovery business sector. Below are instances of people with unresponsive hard drives who require a data recovery service.

Drive powers up, not recognized on PC, makes loud clicking noise (3.5″ drive)

External dropped, sounds like stiction, quoted usual 450 – 500 plus etc. according to results. Only after gone when booking in realised had been opened, this not mentioned by customer, will have to contact and explain re diag. Contains family photo collection.

I deleted files on my C drive and I’m unable to recover them.

My iomega external hard drive has stopped communication with the Laptop, its power light is working and you can hear the drive spinning, however, its not recognised when the USB cable is plugged in

Possible read/write head issue. 2gb drive I need data recovered on behalf of a client of mine

Laptop hard disk – sounds like bad sectors – local IT shop cannot access it

Its a Seagate 1tb hard drive Model SRD00F1 that has a blue light blinking when plugged in but stopped showing upon the computer altogether a couple of weeks ago. I’ve bought a new cable, which made no difference. It doesn’t appear in disk utility or any other way on my Mac and I have tried to see it on another Mac with no success. Can you recommend a hard drive recovery service please as the hard drive contains my entire work portfolio and all my photos from the past few years

1TB WD – device booting up but not giving access to laptop. been taken out of laptop – said laptop was making noises but thinks that was laptop booting. No unusual noises.

I have a hard drive that worked perfectly and all of a sudden stopped it now says to many bad sectors . It had some images from my work in the early days of my photography but it’s the images etc of my little boy I am wanting to recover . Do you think this is possible please ?

Drive fell from desk onto floor whilst in a portable drive caddy. Windows Disk Management now sees it as an Unitialized Drive. Drive does not sound normal spinning up – sounds like the heads are stuck

My portable drives wire stopped working and I paid for a new one from amazon however no luck, The portable drive light is still working but not coming up when I put the USB into my computer. Is there absolutely any chance of recovering the files on the disc? With the light coming on you’d presume it’s not broken?

Data Recovery in Leicester

without comments

There’s now a Data Clinic data recovery centre located in Leicester where you can take your broken hard drives and phones to so you can get their data recovery. It’s at Rutland House, on Friar Lane, Leicester

Recovering data from a .DMG file

Question: I’m located in Leicester and a couple of years ago my hard drive crashed and a company managed to save the data and restore it. A couple of days later, it happened again and I brought my laptop back to the same company which fixed it this time (something was faulty and therefore needed to be changed the first time). I managed to make a disk image (.dmg file – what is a .dmg file?) on my external hard drive the 2nd time and thought I saved my data.
I haven’t managed to use this disk image since and I always have this message when I try to mount the said image: “No Mountable File Systems”
I am wondering how much would it cost for my data to be recovered or the disk image to be mounted on a HDD so I can access it again and if it is at all possible.

Answer: To recover the data from a .dmg file my advice is to read other posts in this blog and contact one of the data recovery specialists it recommends. There’s a new data clinic recovery provider at Data Clinic Ltd, 3rd Floor, St George’s House, 6 St George’s Way, Leicester LE1 1QZ

File copy takes a long time

Question: I left some files copying over to a hard drive overnight (which would have taken it to full capacity). When I woke in the morning I had failed to copy errors and the disk drive had disconnected. I reconnected with another cable but it won’t mount, although I can see it in disk utility. I’ve had this problem before on my Macbook but the hard drive usually mounts after a few hours. It’s now been 20 hours. The light is on on the disk drive and I can hear it spinning. Is file recovery possible? I was yet to backup so a lot of files will be lost.

Data recovery in Leicester at King George's House LE1 1QZAnswer: Sounds very much like hard drive has bad sectors. My recommendation to to find a data clinic in Leicester that should be able to help you recover the data.

WD hard drive stopped working

I have an old Western Digital external hard drive with family photos on it, which stopped working several years ago. It made noises when it failed, so I think it’s a mechanical problem. I have an identical WD drive you can have as a donor for spare parts, and I would supply a new Lacie external drive to return the data on.

Seagate hard drive firmware fault

It seems that you have a perfect knowledge of seagate hard drive firmwares defaults.
I have a seagate barracuda 3Tb ST3000DM001 version 7200.14 (so sad it is not 7200.11)
It is the usual problem, bios doesn’t see the hard drive, the reading heads try to read platters few times then the hard drive stops. I live close the the data recovery place at Rutland House in Leicester and can call in with the hard drive.
I checked 2 seconds under laminar flow bench, everything look intact inside and no particle on the filter. Could you tell me what you think about the problem, just to check that we talk the same thing and what would be the total price for data recovery (shipping, work on the hardrive, backup on new support, …)

I dropped my portable external hard drive (WD Mypassport Ultra 1TB) and it now doesn’t seem to start up when plugged in, and is not recognised at all by my laptop (Macbook pro retina).
It contains about 500mb of data. most of this is backed up elsewhere but the critical last few months are not backed up due to a failure of my automated system.
The data includes mainly image files (jpg, psd), video files, word and pdf files.
I would like an estimate of time and cost for data recovery, and details of how your services are operating at the moment.

Blue Screen of Death, Dropped Hard Drive, Disk Crash

without comments

Recover data from Blue Screen of Death

I believe it is a hard disc failure. Windows does not load and freezes to a blue screen after F8 (it is an HP computer) and choosing most of all the options. Tried installing the hard disc onto another working desktop – so added this disc to the existing working hard disc. Upon start up the pc seemed to be checking all segments of this additional drive. “Deleting corrupt attribute records” and recognising that some file records are unreadable. Upon startup folders seem to be able to be viewed but are unreadable.

Dropped hard drive - broken

Retrieve Files from Dropped Hard Drive

I have an external hard drive which I dropped. I believe that the head is just stuck and needs adjusting but I am too scared to remove it myself. It is a 3.5″ SATA drive in a case. Please could you give me an idea of your charges to recover the data on this drive?

Hard drive causing desktop to crash during start up

My hard drive has broken and I fear it’s quite bad. I already tried reinstalling windows, not knowing what the problem was, and then a guy in a phone shop in town took a look and said the hard drive is making a noise and every time it turns it’s probably corrupting files. So it has already been used quite a bit when it shouldn’t have. I’d appreciate a real expert to see if they can get my data back please.

RAID Data Recovery – A review of Data Clinic Bury, Manchester

without comments

I had a Synology 5 disk nas (raid5). With 2 problem hdd’s one had failed and the second was full of errors. I needed a RAID data recovery service – ideally in Manchester or somewhere in the North West. The data on the RAID was critical and I needed to get the files back. I knew of a Data Clinic in Bury at the Pavilions, Bridge Hall Lane, Greater Manchester and decided to take my RAID 5 nas in for data recovery.

The service I received was wonderful and they succeeded in recovering all my files from the Synology server. 5 stars for Data Clinic’s RAID data recovery team in Bury.

Recover photos from hard drive and phone

without comments

Need to recover photos from hard drive

We have a seagate external hard drive with around 300,000 images and some videos. For some reason that we cannot work out, it seemed to be reformatted to nfts from FAT because we can no longer read/write on a mac – only windows.
We bought a secondary hard drive 2tb also to transfer all of the photos and videos across and then reformat the original disk. However, when i attempted this – it didn’t seem to transfer all of the photos.
These photos have massive sentimental value and I was wondering what services you offer. Do you have a centre in Birmingham that recovers data and photos?
photos on a tabletIdeally we would like all of the images and videos safely moved onto another disk. Followed by the files and other stuff if possible but all the junk be removed, then the disk reformatted
I have attempted this at home but I’m not sure what went wrong.

Recover photos from phone

I recently smashed my phone and although it was working and receiving calls etc -the home button wasn’t working and i could not back it up to my lap top. I really didn’t want to lose a years worth of photos (a year in which my dad got cancer and i broke up with my boyfriend.. lots of special content on there including my voice diary and special videos of my father). I took it to Ismash to fix the screen. I thought if the screen was fixed then I could just go on and back up to iCloud..
It came back last night and was working – I was thrilled!! I was volunteering at a soup kitchen straight after so I put it in my pocket. Then when I looked at it again it was disabled.
What can you guys do. I have tried to update my phone but it is not working. I so so want this data. Do you think there is hope to recover it? How much would it cost?
Many thanks for keeping up with this rather emotional email! I will be so grateful if there is something you guys can do.

I’ve got a Samsung S7 on which the motherboard seems to have died. I had a lot of data and photos on an SD card but think I’ve left some photos on the internal memory that I would like to try and get back. Are you able to help? I am in Birmingham.

WD My Passport Data Recovery in Preston

WD My Passport 2TB (USB 3.0) External Hard Drive recently stopped connecting to my mac, with pressure applied and when putting into the slot the hard drive will mount but as soon as I let go it loses connection so my best guess is the port or slot on the drive itself is either damaged or is faulty though I haven’t dropped the drive and all data is working but I just cannot keep the drive connected for long and there is a lot of important files on the hard drive which I can’t access without a lot of time and effort to try and move the usb to a certain position for it to mount. Please help, I live in Preston and am looking for a data recovery service on my hard drive

Drive spins and gets warm but system cannot see it at all. SATA/USB converter connector also doesn’t see a disk attached

Hard Drive Recovery in Lancaster, Lancashire

Data recovery in Manchester and North West England, including Preston, Warrington and LancasterYears ago my hdd went dead (no longer spinning) after applying wrong psu. In fact I think it blew up and has obvious burnt mark. So obviously, I can’t access the files on the hard drive anymore. We are based in Lancaster, Lancashire. Can the files be got back?
I had then bought the exact same hdd with same pcb number (had it imported from the us) in view of getting it fixed but the quotes at the time were very high.
I dont have the details in hand (model etc…) but I know I still have them both.
How much would u quote a repair if I provide u the other pcb?
There loads pictures of my partner’s nan who has since passed away.

Get Files Back in Preston

Hi, the external hard drive in our office in Preston is not working for some reason and I have about 60GB size of my old pictures. When I right click for information it’s showing 60GB is used and have remaining 20GB but there isn’t any pics in it. Is there anyway we can get this data back? Please advise. I’m based in Preston as well and I can certainly pop in to see you whenever it’s convenient for you.

Hard Disk stopped working in Warrington

My computer hard disk has stopped working and is no longer detected even on a different computer.
I think it has stopped functioning but there was data on it and I need to get it recovered.
Where are you based (we are in Warrington) and how much is the evaluation for checking if data can be retrieved?

Retrieve files from broken hard drives and phones

Transcend 1tb. The hard drive has failed and I’ve been told it mechanical. The hard drive is a Seagate ST1000LM024 (tech specs here). I believe it’s fairly common fault.

WD Green (WD30EZRX)
Drive powers up and plates spin, but HDD is not seen by PC in windows or BIOS.
If a fix is possible a qoute would be appreciated, ideally by e-mail as access to my phone is limited while at work. hdd has a slightly scratched surface and reader heads not reading

broken hard drive

The hard drive does not power up so think it may be the connections. Would you be able to recover and roughly how much is it likely to cost?

I have an iPod Touch 4 which i have accidentally disabled due to too many failed password attempts (also do not have the trusted PC). I have a lot of photos on there which i would like back. Am i best off wiping the device and sending this to you for data recovery? If so, what is the success rate for something like this?

I have a WD3200BEVT that was dropped on the floor. Never worked since and not recognised by any laptop/computer. Could you give me a quote for data recovery please?

I need to recover some deleted texts, potentially for use in a court case. So I’m wanting to use a forensic data recovery service.

I have a 1TB seagate backup plus portable drive with roughly 250GB of photos on it which is no longer working. I have plugged it into multiple laptops and have been unable to access the drive. What are my options?

Internal hard drive is making clicking noises when starting up. No device is able to pick it up when plugged in. Hopefully still recoverable! Thank you

old nokia 6131 phone, not great condition wont charge and most keys dont work. want to recover photos

I have a laptop computer that is fully encrypted by Check Point Endpoint security and I am unable to use the laptop. The information on the hard drive is necessary, so I wish for the files to be recovered.
