Hard Disk Recovery
The Data Recovery Process
Once your device is received it is immediately logged into our system. At this point, you will receive a call from our customer care professional who will confirm receipt of your media and gather any additional information required by our data recovery engineers. Your device is then placed in our lab for a free evaluation. During this evaluation, if your device is accessible, a copy of your media is made, taken through a strict quality control process to ensure the data is in a useable format. Read More >>
Is Your Drive Making Clicking Sounds?
There are a few signs of hard drive failure besides the obvious error screen and failure to boot. A persistent clicking noise, sometimes called the “click of death”, is one indication that hard drive failure is imminent.
Many people notice a hard drive clicking noise only after their device has failed, in which case you will need the service of a professional data recovery company. For professional assistance in recovering data on a failed hard drive click here
Frequently Asked Questions.
Simply put, data recovery is a system of processes used to recover lost data from a variety of sources, including hard disk drives, flash drives, SD cards, servers, or tape backups. Performed by trained experts, data recovery is the last resort when all other methods, including commercial software fail.
Data can be lost due to a number of circumstances. The largest contributing factor to data loss is hardware or system malfunction, followed by human error, accounting for almost 75% of all incidences. Rounding out the list is software corruption, computer viruses and natural disasters such as fire and water damage.
When it comes to securing data on your hard drive, an ounce of prevention is worth much more than a pound of cure. In fact, prevention is the real name of the game here, because even a pound of cure isn’t always a reliable solution. And security matters, because it’s the nature of business these days to entrust critical data to a computer’s hard drive. When that data becomes vulnerable, so does the business organization as well.
The fact is, your data is only as secure as you make it.
The reality of hard drives is that they’re going to crash sometime – it’s not a question of if, but when. And broken hard drives are vulnerable to those equipped with determination and the right set of tools. (In fact, the only guaranteed secure solution to protecting data on a hard drive is to melt the drive down – not a practical option for most users.) The recovery of the content of failed drives – and the subsequent exposure of sensitive data – is of particular concern to law enforcement and government agencies.
Backing up information as policy ensures your access to data should you suffer a hard drive failure.
It’s necessary, however, to think beyond mere backup. Encryption offers a heightened level of security, ensuring that significant data is locked away to everyone except those who have the right to access it. Encryption tools are commonly available and reliable, depending on the complexity of your needs. Encryption is a necessary part of hard drive security, because even data on a crashed hard drive can be recovered by a determined professional.
Life is full of surprises. Hard drives crash, sometimes with serious consequences. However, if the data on a failed hard drive has been encrypted, the likelihood of recovering meaningful data by any means can be rendered significantly improbable. With a suitable level of care, and some thought to appropriate back-up and encryption, even surprises can be taken in stride.
There are many methods by which data is retrieved, both conventional and non-conventional. In fact, there is no one set way to retrieve data. Each project is analyzed on an individual basis and only then can an action plan be developed. JS Data Recovery prides itself on being unique in its approach. While other data recovery players test and re-test their clients’ media, JS employs state-of-the-art replication technology to duplicate clients’ data bit by bit reducing the risk of causing further damage to the data.
There are occasions when damage to the data is permanent. However, it is a rare case when absolutely no data is retrievable. Most times, JS Data Recovery can recover some of the data even in extreme conditions. On average, the company boasts a 82% data recovery success rate.
Each project is different and requires unique processes and timelines. Upon receipt of damaged media, JS Data Recovery will provide a report within one business day outlining the specifics required to perform the data recovery. While some projects may require several days, even weeks, about 75% of all jobs have a turnaround time of less than 48 hours.
Data Recovery offers clients a secure environment so that they can rest easy knowing their information is kept private. Every member of the JS team is under non-disclosure. Furthermore, a special secure isolation room with controlled access is available when confidentiality is of the utmost importance such as in the case of government data. JS also offers an Online Remote Repair service for certain types of data recovery projects.
