Disaster Averted

I am beyond grateful that Secure Data Recovery was able to pull my data of a bad hard drive. Due to the nature of my business, I am required to keep my client''s records for several years. I failed to backup my data in a timely manner and as a result lost one full year of records when my hard drive crashed. I could have been facing fines in excess of what the recovery service costs. This was defin... Read More

Fantastic Service and Quick Response

Nothing but great things to say about Secure Data Recovery! Scott was incredibly patient with my ignorant questions, had fast service, and kept me informed the entire process.

Speedy, competent responses

While the data recovery process can be slow and cumbersome, Scott helps it by being responsive to calls and emails in better-than-average times. Unlike a lot of CSRs, you know you will get a communication back from him, and in a short time. Just that assurance is helpful for stressful times like data loss.
Great to work with you Scott!

Hard Drive Failure Types

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.
