Data Recovery Birmingham and Manchester

Wednesday, July 31st, 2019

I work near your data recovery offices in Manchester and Birmingham and have a Seagate Barracuda 1 Terabyte hard disk with firmware: LC15. I bought this a few years ago and after some time is broke down.
The hard disk still runs however it is impossible to read any information from it. From the noise it creates I believe the reader or the reader head is broken but the disk itself may be in relatively good condition.
I have an exact same seagate barracude 1 terabyte disk i bought along with this one that still works. I would not mind using the reader of that disk on the broken one.
it technicianThe disk contains some extremely important information for me and it is vital that the information can be extracted (I am aware no-one can give me 100% guarantee). I also ask if it possible for me to be there in person as this recovery happens. ,
My hard drive has been damaged by water and it’s not working anymore. It was inside a Mac Book Pro 2012. It has been removed by a specialist in the Apple Store, but they don’t do recovery of it. I bought a case to try it in another laptop, but it doesn’t work. It’s a 256 Gb, not completely full.

When I plug in the USB the icon appears and it says it’s half full but when I open it it says ‘folder empty’. An IT technician in Bolton, Manchester at my workplace managed to recover some files however I am not really able to open them unless they are word documents (can’t open ppts and PDFs).

Laptop has recently been formatted and windows 10 installed replacing windows 7. There was data on a users profile Desktop, My Documents etc that was not backed up. Wondering if it would be possible to retrieve the data from the windows 7 profile.

2TB WD HD stopped mounting or powering up. Removed from case and booted in caddy but is asking to be initialized. I did run a recovery tool which picked up some data. Birmingham based, can you email me a hard drive recovery quote?

SSHD no longer functional. Essential data needed to be recovered in Manchester.

I own a western digital external drive ‘passport’ which was password protecged by me a year ago and now I am unble to access it as I forgot the password. Is there anything that can be done to retrieve the data?

My mother recently had her laptop fail after allowing a Windows 10 update.
We thought we had been making regular backups to a separate hard drive, but these don’t seem to have been working for a year or so.
We took the machine to a local company in Manchester, who diagnosed that they needed to completely reinstall Windows 10.
Now we can’t find any of the old files since 2016.
Is there any hope of finding a way to recover these files please? The computer is in Birmingham.
