Need data off of water damaged phone

Saturday, July 29th, 2017

Phone was dropped in water and screen is all black but the phone does turn on but I have a picture passcode that I cant draw due to the screen not working. Have about 50 photos on there that I would really like to access. When plugged into a computer, the phone is recognised but cant access it due to the passcode lock!

liquid damage iphoneMy Iphone 7 is completely dead – won’t turn, respond, charge, reset etc. Slowly started breaking (lost service, then home button wouldn’t work, phone acting slowly, then turned off and died). I usually back everything up to I cloud but for the past 7 days I didn’t have access to wifi so the phone was not backed up. I was just wondering if there was any way that I’d be able to recover the photos from the past week at all? Obviously there is a past code on the phone which is unresponsive which may make it worse. Please let me know if this is possible.

My I phone screen smashed and and is water damaged. I didn’t back up my I phone onto i cloud and since the screen is damaged I cant click on ‘trust the device’ in order to connect it to my computer to retrieve my files :( . any solution? Note: Water damage is not covered by your Apple warranty and neither is data recovery – see https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204104. If you want the data you’ll need to find a phone recovery specialist like http://phone-recovery.pen.io/.

Water damaged iphone 6 need to get photos etc off it it wont turn back on or charge

I dropped of my I phone 6s to the Birmingham drop of point. The lady at reception said she couldn’t send my phone to you as she said she had not yet received the boxes for posting. So I was just wondering when my I phone shall arrive to you? Would it be possible for you to send me a confirmation email also regarding my phone?

My iPhone 5 is damaged beyond repair. There is an issue with the display which means when I connect to my laptop to recover my data I cannot see the screen to “trust” the laptop. I would like to know if it is possible to recover my notes, photos, contacts and whats app messages?

I have an iPhone 4s that is stuck in recovery mode and will not perform an update. It would not update prior to recovery mode because there was not enough storage space. The only option it is allowing is a restore. However, I have not backed up the iPhone in iTunes or iCloud for approx 2 years, therefore would like all my data, mainly photos recovered, so that I can restore and begin using the iPhone.

computer help and assistance required

I have a WD My passport 1Tb that has become unreadable. I need the files recovered. The hard drive was accidentally dropped and now cannot see the content. is does see as connected to the pc but that’s it. I had professional to look at it and was connected with Linux software but nothing, and I have been advised that it need to be open in laboratory to recover the data.
the WD hard drive is 1T big but is not even half full and has only pictures on it. is it something that you can do and if yes how much would it cost?
Please contact me via email as I don’t have good network reception.

I have a WD passport hard drive with photos, music, and some documents on it which i can no longer access. I took drive on holiday with me; it was working before I went but not since I’ve come back (not used on holiday, just carried in bag). When I plug drive in light comes on and I can hear it whirring, but it’s not visible under My Computer. I can see it as External HDD under control panel, but I can’t do anything with it there. When I go into disk management through command prompt it says the drive is not initialised. Would be grateful if you could give me a quote for your recovery services.

Help recovering hard drive data

Saturday, July 8th, 2017

I have an external hard drive, which seems to be TURN ON for roughly 3 seconds and then TURNS OFF immediately (spins down), whilst making a beeping noise. Addtionally, during those 3 seconds the disk is spinning.
(Note: the heads were originally stuck but are now free. Also, the controller board seems to be a bit burnt, as some of the gold lines look discoloured).
Please can you advise me on this? Is there a possibility that the control board is causing this problem and just needs to be replaced?

CCTV unit for data recoveryAnswer: Hi – your hard drive has a head fault – it’s not a controller board problem. A beeping hard drive indicates that it has a mechanical problem. To retrieve the data from it requires the attentions of a good data recovery specialist. On this blog we recommend several data recovery companies – try http://www.dataclinic.co.uk/ for further assistance.

Deleted Partitions
160gb hdd win7 deleted 3 partitions for clean install of win7 only to be told later there was 2 folders in the root of C. I’ve ran a few recovery programs read only but cant find the partition

Answer: If the data you need recovering has been overwritten by the clean install then your data has been lost for good – there’s no point running a data recovery program on it – it’s gone for good.

Hard drive spins then shuts down very quickly.
Need a price and a ETA on doing this job.

I have a 32GB Lexar 1000x CF card used in a Canon camera – the card is corrupted and I can’t view or transfer the photographs (RAW files) I have tried a few free recovery software, but none have helped. When I try and read it on my PC, it says it needs to format the disk. Is this something you can help me with? And, if so, how much would it cost?

We have received ccTV hard drive back from the police after a break in but we are unable to retrieve the data from q3 April 17 to 17th April 17. We are looking to get this data onto a disc so we can view it and understand how the breaking was carried out

Answer: Search the dataclinic.co.uk site (mentioned above) and find the CCTV data recovery section. They should be able to help.
