DATA RECOVERY IS NO FUN.
If you've been sent here, you probably need some data back. Badly. There are a number of methods for recovery, but one of the more effective, though pricey, options is to use a sophisticated drive recovery process in a "clean room".
We recommend DriveSavers, based in Novato, CA. They have equipment that can carefully extract data from extremely damaged equipment. And they only charge if they are successful. And they do repair estimates at no cost.
So it's worth trying if you feel (or if a consultant has explained) that traditional recovery techniques aren't working. Click below and DriveSavers will explain the process for you.
