Data Recovery Services NYC

Data Recovery NYC, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island

How many people do you come across every now and then who would say they’ve lost precious pictures of loved ones or scenes from their past which they can never get back? Same deal with music, videos or important documents? Fact is most of us think our data is safe and will always be there but we all know what the reality is and more often than not we never take the time to secure the data before it’s too late and will end up needing to have a hard drive replacement done. So if you’re looking for data recovery services in New York, give me a try.

Damaged hard Drive? STOP! Don’t make it worse!Trust your hard drive to Data Recovery professionals!

So, now you cannot access the data anymore via the conventional method because your pc got viruses or developed mechanical issues so what do you do? Time to take it to a data recovery expert who can “try” to recover the lost data “if” it is still there on the hard drive. Tech’s like myself have different methods we can try to provide effective USB, SD Card, internal and external hard drive data recovery and if they don’t work then as last option you will need to take to a hard drive recovery service like a lab which has forensics type tools for retrieving data, if it’s still there, that is. At least with me if the data is not there anymore it will not cost you one cent!

Labs will take the chip or disc from inside of a hard drive and connect that to their tools to see if the data is still there. Thing is, taking to a lab is VERY expensive with at LEAST a few hundred dollars to start if the data is there and recoverable. I myself never charge anyone if I cannot retrieve the data using my different methods but that’s not the case with every tech so make sure you inquire about that before you take the drive either to a tech or lab.

Prevention in any case is better than cure so for anyone reading this NOW [not tomorrow] is the time to securely backup all precious data! What’s the best backup method you ask? It is “my” personal opinion that one should never depend on any “one” backup source but best to have 2 or more backup sources. Keep in mind that external or flash drives are the same basically as a hard drive inside of a pc so a simple knock or drop can cause the drive not to work. Online backups like cloud or via email e.t.c is a good source in addition to physical backups like CD or DVD disks. If you should have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to ask, my advice is always FREE!

In computing, data recovery is a process of salvaging inaccessible data from corrupted or damaged secondary storage, removable media or files, when the data they store cannot be accessed in a normal way. The data is most often salvaged from storage media such as internal or external hard disk drives (HDDs), solid-state drives (SSDs), USB flash drives, magnetic tapes, CDs, DVDs, RAID subsystems, and other electronic devices. Recovery may be required due to physical damage to the storage device or logical damage to the file system that prevents it from being mounted by the host operating system (OS).

The most common data recovery scenario involves an operating system failure, malfunction of a storage device, accidental damage or deletion, etc. (typically, on a single-drive, single-partition, single-OS system), in which case the goal is simply to copy all wanted files to another drive. This can be easily accomplished using a Live CD, many of which provide a means to mount the system drive and backup drives or removable media, and to move the files from the system drive to the backup media with a file manager or optical disc authoring software. Such cases can often be mitigated by disk partitioning and consistently storing valuable data files (or copies of them) on a different partition from the replaceable OS system files.

Another scenario involves a drive-level failure, such as a compromised file system or drive partition, or a hard disk drive failure. In any of these cases, the data cannot be easily read. Depending on the situation, solutions involve repairing the file system, partition table or master boot record, or drive recovery techniques ranging from software-based recovery of corrupted data, hardware- and software-based recovery of damaged service areas (also known as the hard disk drive’s “firmware”), to hardware replacement on a physically damaged drive. If a drive recovery is necessary, the drive itself has typically failed permanently, and the focus is rather on a one-time recovery, salvaging whatever data can be read.

In a third scenario, files have been “deleted” from a storage medium. Typically, the contents of deleted files are not removed immediately from the drive; instead, references to them in the directory structure are removed, and the space they occupy is made available for later overwriting. For the end users, deleted files are not discoverable through a standard file manager, but that data still technically exists on the drive. In the meantime, the original file contents remain, often in a number of disconnected fragments, and may be recoverable.

The term “data recovery” is also used in the context of forensic applications or espionage, where data which have been encrypted or hidden, rather than damaged, are recovered.
