Deleted something important? Laptop not switching on?

Data and file recovery in Dunfermline and Fife.

Accidental Deletion

If you’ve accidentally deleted a file, or worse, a folder, step 1 is to switch off your computer!

The good news is, when you delete a file, the file hasn’t actually gone. It sits on your hard drive waiting for something else to come along and over-write it. That’s why it’s important to switch of your computer or laptop before Windows gets a chance to overwrite it.

We can remove your hard drive and using a special device, and professional data recovery software, there’s a high chance we can recover your files.

Hard Drive Failure

If your computer or laptop fails to start or boot, there’s a high chance your hard drive has malfunctioned. In severe cases, a fatal mechanical malfunction will mean no data can be retrieved, but in less severe cases, some or all of your data can be recovered.

We can remove your hard drive and using a special device, gain access to the file system and copy your data over to a healthy external hard drive so you can access it from another computer or laptop.

Dead Computer

When your laptop or computer won’t switch on (no power / completely dead), it’s often the result of a serious hardware issue. In many cases, the data, family photos, important business documents etc. can be more valuable than the laptop itself.

USB Pen Drive Failure

We get a lot of customers coming into us with USB pen drive failures. Sadly, in many cases data is unrecoverable because the chip contained within the USB drive has burnt out. Whilst this is extremely common, it’s not often the case, and sometimes the device may have become corrupt.

If this is the case, we can attempt to repair the corruption using specialist software and salvage your data.
