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.

  • Saving college students music compositions

    Reviewed on Apr 13 2018

    My son''s Macbook Pro had a hard drive failure for the 4th, 5th, or 6th time. It happened so many times I can''t remember, but he needed to have the data from the drive recovered, as there was some composed music he was working on for one of his classes. That is when Secure Data Recovery and Mr. Chris McMacken came into the picture. Chris was very helpful and reviewed the steps of how the data recovery was to occur. He was timely when I asked for an update as to when the recovery would complete. He informed me that they were able to have a successful recovery of the data on the drive and I just needed to advise them on what type of media device to use to save the files.

    Overall, I am happy with the service Secure Data Recovery has provided.

  • Recovery of RAID drives

    Reviewed on Apr 8 2018

    I worked with Frederick Wright to recover data on two mirrored Raid drives that had crashed. He stepped me through my options, timing, and costs. I shipped both drives to Cleveland where they conducted their diagnostics. Fortunately, they reported that the drives did not suffer an physical damage but had logical errors to their master boot record and root directory and were able to perform a 100% recovery. The recovered data was put on a third new hard drive that I supplied. There were no hidden fees or costs and you will be told of the costs before any recovery is completed. The cost was $900 but if you have irreplaceable documents and images that you foolishly did not back up, it is worth it.

    My thumb drive, containing hundreds of important documents, failed. I was not hopeful that my data could be recovered, but I decided to reach out to Secure Data Recovery. I received a call from Fred Wright promptly after my initial inquiry and I was kept apprised at each step along the way. Although the recovery is not inexpensive and takes a while, all of this was clearly disclosed on the front end. Ultimately, Secure Data Recovery recovered 100% of my documents so the cost and time it took was well worth it. I would absolutely recommend Secure Data.

    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.

  • Excellent Service Provider

    Reviewed on Jan 26 2018

    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.

  • Great service

    Reviewed on Mar 31 2017

    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!
