Data Recovery Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do you have a clean room?
Yes, We have a class-100 clean room at an offsite facility where we work on drive internals. Sometimes it's necessary to work on the internals of a drive chassis in order to recover data. This type of work should only be done in a dust free environment. Sometimes when drives need to go to the clean room, a surcharge may be necessary. This surcharge is due to the extra time, labor, and replacement parts.
If you guys fail, will I be able to go to another service for an attempt?
Of course, although in most cases where we notice physical damage to the platters, we'll probably suggest you do not.
How long will it take to get my data back?
The average service time on a standard data recovery service, can take up to 5 business days. If the drive needs to go to our clean room or parts are need to be ordered, the recovery time can take up to 7 business days after the initial evaluation. Please note, that these time frames are estimations, we do not guarantee service will be complete in 7 business days. Due to problems that your hard drive may have, it may take longer. However when you drop your drive off, we do not keep you in the dark. We inform you about every step of the way, when we know.
What type of payment do you accept?
WeWe accept cash, certified check, wire transfer, money order, Amex, Visa, Mastercard, Discover. Please call with any other types of payment. Checks must be cleared before data is released.
What do I need to bring into your facility
For data recovery please explain the situation. We need the device in question. Sometimes we need the entire server or computer. Please call us, that way we can get a full description of the problem, and tailor the job to you. Every job is different.
Do you do software recovery's only?
NNo. We have expensive imaging machines, a class 100 whiteroom, we can open the Hard Drive, but in and off-site location.
Should I try and tap on my hard drive to get it spinning again?
No. If a failing hard drive get tapped, this can cause more damage.
Should I Try The Infamous Freezer Trick?
Yes and No. There has been articles showing it works. However it doesn't work with a majority of issues and the trick only works for specialized specific issues. It's like replacing a spark plug when you need a new alternator. It is also dangerous due to condensation buildup, this may ruin your hard drive making recovery impossible. If the hard drive data means that much to you that you cannot lose it, take it to a professional Long Island data recovery company and do not endanger the hard drive more then it already is. Please call us (516)889-0777 and explain your failed data recovery situation.
How will I get my information back?
Due to the size of your media, we can only give you options, and let you choose. We can recover information on CD's, DVD's, Hard Drives, Flash Drives or SD Cards. We do not recommend you buy anything, until we inform you that the data can come off.
I lost my restore CDs/DVDs that came with my computer, can you back up my Applications (Programs)?
Unfortunately we can't. When a Computer Application (program) is installed onto a computer, files get saved to multiple directories in more than 50 locations on the hard drive. It would be easier for us, just to re-install the Computer Application (program), than to backup it up.
