FireWire Hard Drive Data Recovery Services

Also known as IEEE 1394, FireWire is an interface standard developed and promoted by Apple in the 1980s and 1990s. FireWire hard drives became popular in the early 2000s, and thanks to several significant revisions in the IEEE 1394 standard, FireWire storage devices are currently a popular alternative to USB external drives.

FireWire Hard Drive Data Recovery Services

Our staff has experience with all file systems, which allows for faster treatment for external FireWire hard drives.

All digital storage devices can fail and lose data, and because hard drives rely on a number of moving parts, they are susceptible to physical damage and overheating. FireWire hard drives often suffer from failed read/write heads, locked spindles, controller board damage and other physical issues. External HDDs can also lose data for logical (non-physical) reasons such as accidental deletion, formatting, virus damage or file corruption.

Common data loss symptoms for FireWire drives include:

  • Clicking Sounds or Other Unusual Noises
  • Missing Files or Folders
  • File Corruption Error Messages
  • Failure to Power On
  • Failure to Mount or Recognize
  • Extremely Slow Transfer and File Access Speeds

Secure Data Recovery Services provides repair and recovery for all FireWire hard drive brands and models, including FireWire RAID, NAS and SAN devices. With a Certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, numerous security credentials and certifications from all major FireWire hard drive manufacturers, we deliver reliable results at affordable rates.

Choosing a FireWire Hard Drive Data Recovery Provider

Professional data recovery companies need to follow appropriate precautions when handling failed FireWire devices in order to provide a successful recovery within a reasonable time frame. While most FireWire drives consist of a standard internal HDD in a specialized enclosure, many have security features and other unique qualities that data recovery engineers need to consider when performing repairs.

As many FireWire hard drives are built for use with Mac OS computers, data recovery engineers need significant experience with HFS+, HFS and other Mac OS filesystems. Engineers also need access to a certified Cleanroom to safely repair physically damaged drive components if the drive presents clicking sounds or other physical symptoms. If a FireWire drive uses RAID, engineers need specialized utilities to treat logical issues.

At Secure Data Recovery Services, we specialize in hard drive data recovery. Our specialists have decades of combined experience with Apple systems, and we can safely treat all data loss issues in a state-of-the-art laboratory equipped with proprietary tools and technology.

Secure Data Recovery Services is one of the only data recovery companies with a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, designed to exacting specifications to keep airborne contaminants from damaging hard drives and other storage devices. Our Cleanroom allows fewer than 10 contaminants per cubic foot, and we regularly test our filtration systems to comply with Class 10 ISO 4 standards.

Security is another important factor to consider when choosing a data recovery provider. We were the first provider to earn a SSAE 18 Type II Certification, and we maintain strict media and network access controls at all times.

Our security certifications include:

  • PCI Security Certification
  • SAS 70 and SSAE 18 Type II Certification
  • GSA (General Services Administration) Contractor Certification
  • Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) Member

Unlike other data recovery providers, we offer detailed security information and access to our audit and attestation reports online. Visit our certifications page for more information.
