Aberdeen Hard Drive Recovery & Repair

If you have a failed or failing hard disk drive that you need the data recovered from then we are here to help.  Our Data Recovery Lab is based in Aberdeen City where you can drop off a drive for recovery any time during our opening hours, alternatively you are welcome to send the drive to us if you live further away.

 

The most common media we recover data from is the humble hard drive. You will find them in almost every desktop and laptop and also inside most external storage devices. Modern drives store hundreds of GBs of data inside them, and while they make storing all your movies, music, photos and documents possible they are prone to failure.

 

The way a modern hard drive works is amazingly complex, precision engineering is involved as your data is stored on metal or glass discs that spin at thousands of times a minute. Hard drives can be damaged by physical impact such as being dropped, power surges, bumps or jolts. Data can also go missing as a result of virus infections, failed updates or corruption to the information stored on the drives. Even if your drive is completely dead, all hope has not been lost. Here at TechRescue we have been recovering data from all types of media since 2004 saving many databases, dissertations, work projects, family photos and documents on the way.

 

Common Symptoms Of Faulty Hard Drive

Common signs of a failing or failed drive are:

  • Slow running computer
  • Hard drive clicking
  • Hard drive grinding
  • Not spinning up or not making any noise
  • Hard drive not being detected in Windows
  • Hard drive not being detected in BIOS
  • Unable to access files
  • Missing files or folders
  • Hard drive being reported as the wrong size
  • Windows saying you must format the drive (please don’t do this!)

Excellent and fast service! Laptop broke night before going in, blue screen of death!!! popped in, got served by a very knowledgeable chap, booked me in for the next day collection with a fixed laptop! price was fantastic as I had no knowledge on laptop internals and got replacement parts at a very good price.

I was in real trouble. The night before I had to appear as an expert witness my laptop just 'died'. I took it to TechRescue Aberdeen, and they fixed it that morning and even kindly delivered it to my hotel in time for me to use it. Fantastic, friendly efficient service! Highly recommended.

excellent service for data recovery form various company hard drives. always kept up to date via SMS and email messaging and good portal to keep up with what Ken is doing and of course settling the bill.They always try to go the extra mile, including when we forgot to disable Bit Locker on a W10 system drive, and needed to get the laptop down to carry on the recovery process. Will continue to use and recommend.Iain M.

Excellent and very efficient service from professionals! Communication was great and they could answer all my questions. After my Windows crashed I decided to buy a new one. I'm very happy with the one they set up for me which was ready to be collected after a week, incl all the data transfer. I woud definitely recommend them to anyone who needs their computer fixed.

Data Recovery In Aberdeen From £89

Once we have inspected your device we will be able to provide you with a no obligation quote for the recovery of your files and data.  Most recoveries can be completed within 2-3 days of us being given the go ahead.

If you suspect you have suffered data loss or think your hard drive or other device is faulty it is important to stop using it and switch it off immediately.  Continued use may make recovery more difficult or impossible.

Prices vary according to what’s wrong and how long it takes to do the recovery. As a rough guide, most data recoveries are in the £89 – £299 Inc VAT Range. We can give you a more accurate estimate upon inspection of the drive or media. Many jobs come in at our lower charge but if your drive has physical damage it may require replacement parts to be sourced and fitted in our clean air area and therefore prices may be higher, we will of course tell you this first. We will give you an estimate before carrying out the data recovery so you wont be hit by any unexpected costs. If we can’t recover your data, there’s no charge!
