When you are faced with Data Loss your next steps are critical.


  • Assess the value of Data that potentially requires to be recovered. Important Data should be taken to the Professionals. Trying a Do It Yourself recovery is not the best decision in these cases.

  • Do you have a Backup of your Data? Think twice, many times you may have a backup of important files.

  • Is your Hard Drive making unusual sounds like Clicking, Grinding, or Beeping? Power down your drive immediately if you hear any of these sounds. Continued use can result in permanent Data Loss.

  • Have you deleted files? If you accidentally delete files do not write new data to the drive that data has been deleted from.  Deleted files can easily be overwritten when you continue to use your computer.

  • Choose a Professional Data Recovery Company. If your Data is valuable do not trust your recovery to your neighbour’s geeky son. Trying to save money up front can cost you 2 to 3 times the money and potentially your data.
