Data Recovery Lurgan – Your one-stop-shop when it comes to recover of data from malfunctioning or faltering hard drives, external hard drives, USB storage devices or memory cards. We also deal with larger setups including RAIDs and industrial mainframes. Call us today on 02890 961976 for further information.
Technology is moving at a pace that many of us find difficult to keep up with. As soon as we purchase a new computer it is effectively out of date because while it has been sitting on the shelf waiting for someone to buy it a newer or updated model has been replaced. And the same applies to the storage devices used in them. Hard drives have now increased exponentially in size over the last few years so that the phrase ‘terabyte’ is no longer associated with super-computers or computers powered by the likes of NASA. Our data recovery Lurgan staff is now dealing with larger amounts of data that require recovery because more and more users are storing larger amounts of data to larger hard drives.
But what is a terabyte? A terabyte is a unit of measuring hard drive storage space to the fourth power. So really it is 1024 gigabytes. That is a lot of storage space and losing the data stored on such a vast storage space would be catastrophic. To that end where possible our data recovery Lurgan engineers recommend making backups when you can but if you can’t or (as happens to most people) you don’t have the time then this is where problems may occur if there has been a malfunction with a hard drive or portable storage device.
It’s important to remember that when storing information to large volume drives there can be more general wear and tear on them as the data can be spread out over a larger surface area of the drive. This area, referred to as the platters, needs to spin more often in order to capture the data and reconstitute it in a way the computer can understand and access. For example our data recovery Lurgan engineers have been asked to recover data from large volume hard drives that have not been defragmented and when the defrag has been carried out the drive has failed because the necessary data (including boot sectors) has been corrupted or damaged.
With more storage space comes greater responsibility!
As already touched up try and carry out a backup when you can. You can do this quite easily if you have the luxury of time. Also a large external drive is handy to ensure the backup can be kept safely out of harm’s way (preferably off site). Our data recovery Lurgan engineers advise that using an external hard drive is a safer method of ensuring the integrity of your data rather than trying to back it up to a separate partition on your existing internal hard drive. After all if an internal drive fails there is a good chance the partition to which you have made your backups will also become defunct.
For more information on recovering data from large volume drives contact us on 02890 961976 where a member of our qualified data recovery Lurgan team will be happy to answer any questions you have as well as provide you with a no obligation quote. We’ll also explain how our No Fix No Fee policy works and give you details of how to get your hard drive to us if you want us to proceed. You can drop your drive into our recovery centre if you work or live close by or send it in via post or courier (we strongly recommend registering your item if you post it). Once we have received it our engineers will make a full diagnosis of the disk and provide you with a detailed listing of everything that can be recovered.
If you are happy with the quotation and wish to proceed we ask that you make full payment via credit/debit card or BACS transfer and upon receiving payment we will return your data via next day courier. If you drive’s data is over 30GBs then we ask that you purchase an external storage device from our extensive stock. Call us today on 02890 961976 and speak to one of our data recovery Lurgan personnel who will be happy to discuss any data problems you might have. Our offices are open daily from 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. We hope you don’t need to avail of our services but if you do we are only a telephone call away.
