Reading Data Recovery

Data Recovery Reading: Call our team today on 01865 593000 if you are experiencing problems accessing data from a storage device that previously seemed to be working fine. It is our experience that such devices often fail without warning and as such can leave you, the user, without an accurate backup to fall back on, and with this in mind we offer the premier data recovery solution in Reading and Berkshire. We are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm and our engineers are standing by to field your queries.

When you went home last night what was the last thing you did with your computer? Did you switch it off? Did you log off the network and leave the computer switched on? Or did you simply switch off the monitor and leave the base unit powered on? Whatever way you left it if you have returned to work to find the hard drive is no longer accessible, it might well be the case that in between times your hard drive has suffered a failure. And if this is the case then our data recovery Reading engineers are just the help you need.

Hard drives, just like all other storage media, are temperamental devices and as such can work find one minute and then fail the next. They sometimes give warning in the guise of an audible warning (the sound of metal against metal is often quoted to our engineers) or a series of persistent beeps from the computer’s in-built speaker at power up. Whatever the warning, our data recovery Reading engineers would like to say, you have been lucky to receive one.

For the most part when a storage device fails there is no warning and when it comes to employing our data recovery and external hard disk drive recovery services it is done on the basis of having a storage device that has simply failed to respond to commands from both user and operating system. When this happens the likelihood is that the storage device has failed because of issues with components, firmware or issues surrounding compatibility between operating system/software and device.

I’m a home user and my Maxtor One Touch 4 500Gb drive has failed

It may look like something from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 (reminiscent of the obelisk at the movie’s opening) but sadly for many users this particular drive has had a less than historical existence. One of the main causes of data loss with this particular drive is the firmware attached to the logic board (controller board) contained inside the external casing and as such our data recovery Reading engineers have been called upon to help recover data from quite a few of these external drives.

If you have a Maxtor One Touch 4 500GB external hard disk drive that has failed don’t throw it away. Call our team of data recovery Reading engineers today on 01865 593000 and ask them for an initial assessment of the situation plus a no obligation quotation (this may include an additional charge if the drive has failed mechanically) along with our No Fix No Fee guarantee. If you are happy with the explanation our team provide you with as well as the quote and would like us to recover the data we ask that you send the affected drive to us here at our data recovery Reading and Berkshire centre. You can do this by post, courier or in person if you live/work in the locale.

Having taken receipt of the drive our data recovery Reading personnel will make a definitive diagnosis of the problem and report back to you with their findings by email. Our email will detail all the data we can recover (files, folders and directories) and if you are happy for us to continue we ask that you make payment to us by BACS, credit or debit card (we may ask that you purchase an external storage device if your data to be recovered is more than 30GBs in volume). Once payment has been received we will recover your data and return it to you via next day courier (the cost of which is included in your quotation). To find out more, to request a no obligation quote or to book your storage device in for recovery, call our team today on 01865 593000 – our lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm as is our data recovery centre. We are closed Christmas Day and Easter and do not accept PayPal.
