What to Do When Your Digital Storage Device Fails

When you cannot read data normally on a computer system or server, you should take immediate steps to limit potential damage. You should turn the device off as soon as you can. This preserves your media in its original condition and lowers your chances of permanent data loss. Do not try to recover data on your own, and never open a hard drive, flash drive, or solid-state drive for any reason. Make a list of your failure symptoms and immediately contact our office in Columbus.

    While I chose not to finish my case (price for data recovery was out of scope for the value of the files I had on there) they were nothing but prompt, efficient, and communication. Thanks Chris McMacken for great customer service along the way.

    I found myself in the unfortunate situation of a failed network drive. The entire family used this drive for storage. I elected Secure Data Recovery because they had a location local to me. Fred Wright was in contact quickly with expert knowledge of the recovery process. The communication and support is prompt and professional. All questions were answered at a level that I could understand. This service isn’t as cheap as backing up your data so spend wisely. I was able to have all data recovered and transferred to a new drive and returned to me in short order. The customer support is second to none. The service is prompt and professional.

    We had used all of our local resources to recover data from one of our devices and were referred to Secure Data as a last resort. They were able to recover 100% of our data and worked extra fast to complete it. Although it is a big investment to recover data, it was a valuable investment for us. We plan to keep Secure Data on file, should we need data recovery in the future.

    When you've lost a year's worth of pictures, you only want your hard drive trusted with the best. I researched quite a bit, and that research led me here. I am so glad it did. They were incredibly helpful and timely, and I am forever grateful that they could save my pictures!

    After calling around to several places, I decided to go with SDR based on the quality of their clean room and reviews like these. I NEVER write reviews, so this should tell you how much I enjoyed their service. I worked with Chris, and we kept in contact almost daily. One thing I really appreciated about this place is that I could get a hold of the guy working on my case at any time. Also, there are updates posted online. I know they couldn't guarantee anything, even along the way, but I knew they had the best chance out of any company for getting my data back. Not only did I get my data back, but it is still in the exact same file structure as it was on my external hard drive that crashed! This has saved me hours of time organizing (and something other companies won't necessarily do). I feel so much peace having my files back, and I feel confident that my privacy and memories were given the utmost respect with this company. I know it's a small thing, but I also appreciated the way my external hard drive was packaged when it was returned to me. Very secure and looks like they took time to make sure it was packaged well.

    After calling various other services and getting unreasonable estimates and bad news, I was excited to find a local service to drop my external hard drive off and feel hopeful about it. They did not require a large down payment to look at and diagnose my external. I had contact information for one account rep that I could email or call at any time with questions. I could access progress online at any time to see where they were in the process of recovering my data. My 1T external hard drive was almost full of mostly pictures. Data recovery was able to recover almost all my pictures except for where the damage on the hard drive occurred. I was very pleased overall with this service and have recommended it to others. Because of the large amount of data, recovery took longer than estimated but the data was recovered. I was very pleased with the recovery and the process. It was worth the investment to have my data back.

    I had a great experience working with Secure Data Recovery Services and Mitchell Moore, my account representative, to recover my hard drives after having a problem with my RAID configuration on my laptop that prevented me from accessing my data. They were quick to diagnose the problem and they recovered all my data within a few days and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs fast data recovery!

    Life happens……..

    While I am very fastidious about backing up and storing all client files, I failed to head my own advice and had not backed up my personal files for some time.

    My hard drive crashed and I was unable to retrieve the data due to a failure of the drive.

    The first company I contacted wanted a fee up front just to diagnose the hard drive failure with no guarantee of data retrieval. Additional fees were to be charged if they found that the data could be recovered.

    I then contacted Secure Data Recovery to inquire about services at their Columbus, OH location. Immediately, I was assigned to a rep and the passing of information began. I was impressed with their no fee up front policy. It was simple to deliver the drive to their office location and the response back from them was extremely prompt.

    They provided me with a detailing of their findings and were able to provide me with a payment option that was feasible and practical – less than $1 a file.

    I am typically not a testimonial writer but after dealing with Secure Data Recovery I wanted to share my story. When you lose something of value it’s tough to know where to turn for help. I am fortunate I chose this company and thrilled with the results!
