  • Q:How much does database recovery cost and how long does it take?

    Secure Data Recovery Services offers free price quotes for every database format. We can also estimate a turnaround time for your case by analyzing your failure scenario, and we offer several turnaround options. Regardless of your budget, our teams will help you choose an appropriate service for your system.

  • Q:Should I try to fix my corrupt databases with software?

    No. Most database repair applications can only treat a limited set of failure scenarios, and if your media has physical read/write issues, running software of any kind could cause permanent damage.

    If you cannot access a database, you should contact a professional data recovery company as soon as possible. Keep your device turned off to prevent media issues from complicating the recovery process.

  • Q:What causes database corruption?

    Corruption occurs when a read/write process is interrupted, either due to a software malfunction or a hardware error. Most database applications have some built-in protection against common sources of corruption, but these protections are limited. Larger databases are generally more likely to encounter corruption.

    Certain events can increase the likelihood of database issues. For example, power surges, blackouts and other electrical events can seriously endanger data, and many of our clients report database issues after new software installation. Back up important databases regularly in order to avoid data loss.

  • Q:How can I limit my downtime after a database failure?

    Do not attempt to repair your databases, especially if you notice signs of physical media issues. Turn off your storage device or isolate the affected partition.

    We realize that database issues can lead to serious downtime, and we offer several turnaround options for the benefit of our clients. Secure Data Recovery Services is one of the only providers with a 24/7/365 emergency service, which carries an average turnaround of less than a day. We can also repair damaged RAID arrays and server hardware; contact our customer service team for more information.

  • Q:Can Secure Data Recovery Services remotely repair a corrupt database?

    Yes, we offer remote recovery services for logically damaged databases. We cannot remotely repair physical media issues, however. Call our customer service team to determine whether remote recovery is an option in your case.
