Your portable disk could have physical damage, mechanical failures, or logical errors. You might need hard drive repair or forensic-grade tools to scan the disk’s free space for file fragments. We have the tailor-made hardware and software to complete the most challenging recoveries on external drives.

Our service has thousands of successful cases involving failed hard drives. That knowledge can work for you.

We also have free software for simple data loss events on removable storage. These programs can restore deleted data and repair corrupted files. Our suite contains software for external hard drives, media cards, and flash drives. It also includes tools for CDs and DVDs, diskettes, and removable media found in Zip, Jaz, Clik, LS-240, SyQuest, or Sparq systems. They are a viable option for cases with a clear cause of data loss from logical errors. Here are some tips for successful use:

  1. Stop recording data on the CD, floppy disk, or other media. Saving new data to the media could overwrite stored files.
  2. Inspect the media. Running software on damaged media can worsen data loss. Contact a data recovery service to retrieve files if there are signs of physical damage.
  3. If safe, use the buttons below to install the program to a PC with Windows 2000 or later.
  4. Connect the media to the computer and scan it. Save recoverable data to a different device or thumb drive than the affected media.

Still do not see lost files? Do not give up. Your storage might have a more severe issue that our experts can resolve. Call us or request help to start a case and reclaim important data.

Note: Pick the appropriate program from our suite. Use the Hard Drive tool for external HDDs. SD cards and USB drives require Flash. We designed the CD and DVD software for optical media. Standard floppy disks should use the tool for Diskettes. More recent legacy systems require Removable Media.

Absolutely Incredible! SDR was really quick with the recovery. I like to thank Daniel Novak for providing helpful insight, answering all my questions, and providing exceptional customer service!

Life Saver!

I had a SD card corrupt while transferring footage from a live event that I shot for a client and obviously couldn’t reshoot.. thankfully secure data recovery was able to save the day by restoring all the footage that I was afraid was lost forever.

Turned Panic to Relief

I was using a flash drive to store personal information on my then work computer. In the period of an hour my files became partially encrypted and I thought I lost 2 years work of documents. My local "Nerds To Go" contact gave me the Secure Data Recovery information. Elliot was my contact and his communication was incredible. He outlined the procedure and timeline for me, as well as the next s... Read More

I Had Given Up Hope a Year Ago!

Hi Eric:
Please know I had given up hope of ever retrieving my photos even though they are of a simple trip, seeing old friends, enjoying Amish country, a one-room schoolhouse conference, and Gettysburg Battlefield. The images were in my memory, but I was saddened that I couldn’t keep them close and share them as I do every year with the participants. Now I can. Thank you ever so much. I dou... Read More
