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.

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.

Our IT department said it’s corrupted, nothing can be saved. Do you know if there’s a way round this? I’ve heard Datlabsdatarecovery are an excellent company for retrieving data from hard drives and mobile phones.

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

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.

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.

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.
