Chicago is the Midwest's most prominent city due to its contributions to art, culture, and business. With more than 2.7 million residents, the Windy City is the third largest municipality in the country. We established our local facility to deliver a comprehensive set of data recovery services to our clients in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin.

Our specialists can successfully treat virtually any type of data loss scenario, including:

  • Mechanical media failures and electronic issues
  • Fire damage, flood damage, and other natural disasters
  • Deleted files and formatted media
  • Virus damage

  • Worn or corroded media

If you have lost access to important files, our specialists can rebuild malfunctioning components, restore damaged data, and present you with a full hard drive recovery. Chicago customers will be happy to learn that we regularly work with all operating systems, and our excellent security systems protect your confidentiality throughout the process of data recovery. Chicago clients can contact our customer service team online or by phone today for a free evaluation at our Chicago office.

What to Do When a Digital Device Fails

The most important thing to remember when data loss occurs is that failed media tends to take on additional damage during operation. Do not run data recovery software or attempt to fix your device on your own. Immediately turning off your device will dramatically increase your chances of making a full data recovery. Prospective Chicago customers should contact us as soon as possible for a consultation. Never bring your media to a general computer repair shop; they will not have the appropriate equipment to safely complete your recovery, and any attempt to repair your device will likely result in additional damage.

By sending your device to Secure Data Recovery Services, Chicago customers can get an accurate price quote and turnaround estimate before making a case decision. Call our Chicago office for a free quote, and if you have a data loss emergency, you can upgrade to expedited or 24/7/365 services to limit your down time.

  • Highly recommend

    Reviewed on Mar 29 2017

    Fantastic customer service, and prompt delivery. I was contacted soon after I made an inquiry on the Secure Data Recovery Services website. My CSR, Alec gave me a clear understanding of the process upfront, and progress along the way. The local staff, where I dropped off my HD were a pleasure to work with as well.

    I had a small external HD, OSX, with clicking sounds and no ability to remount. Dropped off locally, and had my drive diagnosed in 1.5 business days, and its data recovered about a week later.

  • most files recovered

    Reviewed on Feb 20 2017

    I had all my files from my computer and backup erased. I was able to work with Alec to bring down the price and recover most of my files from my backup. They we're able to recover all my files from my old computer but a years worth of files are still gone, which for an artists is a LOT of work! Alec did all that he could.

  • Honest and Reliable Company!

    Reviewed on Jan 7 2017

    I had a crashed external hard drive that I thought would surely be unsalvageable. I called in late at night and they were extremely prompt with getting my problem diagnosed and explaining the process. Chris helped me along the way and he was very professional, helpful, and kind. Even when he was out of the office he continued to email me and keep me updated. They were able to recover 100% of my data from bad sectors and although it took much longer than I had hoped, everything was done correctly and it was a HUGE lifesaver. I can't recommend Secure Data Recovery (and Chris) enough!

  • Dead Flash Drive

    Reviewed on Oct 27 2016

    My flash drive died. I was sunk. Secure Data Recovery was able to recover all the files on it, and mail me a new drive in just a few days. Compared to the cost of re-creating the data, the cost was nominal.

    From the minute I called, Secure Data Recovery was very friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. They explained their no risk process and cost up front, and came through on every promise. They exceeded my expectations in every way. These guys know what their doing.

    If you have a device beyond normal recovery, I would definitely recommend Secure Data Recovery.

    Ask for Chris McMacken. He was super!

  • Great Work Saving Years of Files

    Reviewed on Oct 22 2016

    Was tremendously worried when the Seagate drive I use to back up my laptop slipped and fell off a table, and thought that I was about to lose everything from the past four years. Upon researching places in the Chicago area, Chris McMacken from Secure Data called promptly after my initial inquiry, was very up front about the process and pricing, and checked in with progress and status updates throughout the process.

    The entire endeavor was easy to go through, and at the end of the day easily 80 to 90 percent of my files were recovered, including nearly all of my saved work from college and graduate school that was most important to me. Thanks again, guys!

  • Life saver

    Reviewed on Oct 17 2016

    Had a some portable hard drives which got fried. Had about 14 years worth of film work, videos, photos, etc. Turns out my PCB was fried and everyone else I went to said there was a 5% chance of recovery. Chris and the Secure Data Recovery team was able to retrieve about 90% of my drive. I had really bad sector damage and I was shocked that some of the files are still playable.
    Although, at first I there was some confusion in what services I wanted done, I would highly recommend using SDR. Pricey, but worth saving 14 years of work. Thank you!

    Reviewed on Mar 30 2015

    When my MAC crashed I was in a total panic. 11k photos on there, including a once in a life time trip to Paris! Silly me had not done a back up in 4 years!! Thank goodness for Alec Sakenes and the crew at Secure Data Recovery. From the very first phone call, Alec was helpful and kind. He totally understood I was not a "techy" kind of person and was able to speak to me on my level of expertise in relationship to computers. I would highly recommend Secure Data Recovery to any person who gets themselves in a jam, like I did. Although pricey, EVERY photo and file were recovered!!! Thank you Alec!
