Thank you!

Eric at Secure Data Recovery was very helpful and professional. The process was explained well and the turn around time was very fast. My hard drive failed with no warning and I couldn''t access important files. Secure Data recovered the entire drive except for one bad file that I didn''t need. Great work, thank you!

Secure Hard Drive Recovery Process

  • We offer our customers a comprehensive diagnostic report free of charge with our standard service, to find the root of the failure and allow our engineers to find the right path to recovery.
  • Once the diagnostics are complete, and the data recovery options are clear we provide a firm no-obligation price quote.
  • Upon approval, our engineers conduct the invasive hard drive repairs and if necessary, use custom-designed utilities to recreate file systems and partition table information.
  • The finished product is the recovered data transferred on a brand-new secure device.

We never charge any data recovery fees unless we can successfully recover your desired files and ensure they are in working order.


Modern hard drives are a technological marvel and contain numerous highly sensitive components easily susceptible to physical, electrical, mechanical or logical failures.

The most common physical and electrical problems include bad sectors, read/write head crash or stiction, PCB failure, drive motor and bearing failure, all of which cause the hard drive to cease normal operations and require hands-on drive repair inside a specialized cleanroom environment.
