Hard drive reports as ‘not initialised’, Birmingham data recovery

Friday, April 26th, 2019

I live in Birmingham and have a WD Passport made in 2007. I’m looking for a data recovery company local to Birmingham.
It does not show in my computer.
The drive is recognised by windows device manager but shows as ‘not initialised‘.
It is not recognised in partition software such as MiniTool and EaseUS.
Mechanically it seems fine; the light is on, it seems to be humming.

Whilst using my Seagate portable hard drive it began to make a ‘clicking’ sound. On trying to save my document the drive was no longer visible on ‘my pc’. Our IT team have looked at it but are unable to retrieve any data using their limited resources. They tell me that the hard drive is not initialising. I would be grateful if you could let me know if this is something you could help with. I am in Birmingham and looking to have the data on the hard drive forensically examined – I require the data to be investigated.

How much it cost to recover data from an Apple disk drive which crashed and no longer initialises? It’s mainly data or word files?

Western digital external hard drive not initialised.
Plugged it in, files started disappearing in front of my eyes…..
Could I get a ball park quote of how much recovery may cost?

I dropped my 2TB slim seagate external hard drive from about 1m onto wooden floor.
It now won’t connect or read and it makes a clicking sound.
The data is highly important to me, so obviously I need the data and files recovering.

A Samsung M3 600gb external hard drive that makes a few beeps when is connected, stops and then doesn’t seem to be spinning. I’m looking for a data recovery service in Birmingham.

PC at work and school not reading portable drive…light not coming on. IT technician in Birmingham at school says it is ‘dead’. Can anything be retrieved. 7 years of school work on it.

I have Samsung HD103SI 3.5″ HDD with dead head and I would like to know how much would it cost to get that head replaced with working one

Birmingham / Worcester Hard Drive Recoveries

Monday, January 7th, 2019

There’s a fairly good amount of hard drive recovery work available in the West Midlands. Covering the areas of Birmingham, Worcestershire and Tamworth, the call for data and file recovery services can be quite high.
The Arena is located right in the centre of Birmingham close to Broad Street and many businesses and I recently had an enquiry that went like this:

Broad Street BirminghamI have a WD passport and it will not connect to the laptop and will not recognise the hard drive as a USB. It just keeps whirring and beeping. I have looked online and tried to resolve myself but cant.
I think it is completely bust and I need to recover the data on the hard drive please. If you could send me a quote it would be much appreciated.
I live in Worcester so not far away from your Birmingham office.

I have a WD 2TB hdd whose controller is not working to the best of my knowledge.
The drive and the engine spins up perfectly although there is no recognition on the computer that it is connected.
Do you swap controllers ? please note that, it is also needed to replace the rom bios chip on the controller.
I’ll provide further information if requested – I’ve live near Tamworth, West Midlands but work on Broad Street in Birmingham.

My External WD 1T HDD is not working due to mechanical issue. It gives beep sound once connected and last for 30 second before the power down. It’s a personal HDD and I will like to know the price of recovery. Also, is it possible to drop it to one of your office as I don’t trust post.

Drive has started making knocking noise. iOmega drive with Seagate internal disk. Doesn’t appear in Windows explorer anymore, appears in Disk Manager as uninitialized. Full 1TB drive looking for recovery possibilities
