Magnetic Data Recovery Category 1 - Standard Recovery
During the basic analysis drives are categorised depending on the work needed to remove the data. This category caters data recovery for problems such as:

  • File Deletion
  • Media Reformatting
  • Operating System Corruption
  • Media Format Corruption

90% of all data recovery jobs are dealt with in this section.

Magnetic Data Recovery Category 2 - Advanced Recovery for Mechanical Failures
This category requires an advanced analysis to determine if the data can be retrieved involving proprietary methods using specialist equipment and specialist dust free environments, which incurs a charge.  7.5% of all data recovery jobs are dealt with in this section.  This caters for problems such as:

  • High urgency work
  • Top Security Requirements
  • All non-MS O/S Recoveries
  • Basic hardware failures for media with valid warranties
  • Mechanical Failures

Due to the specialist nature of the work involved and/or to ensure no warranties are affected we hand this work over to our partner company Ontrack, who are probably the best data recovery company in the world.  By definition this is a more costly solution provided by the best trained specialists.
