Data recovery in Liverpool and the Wirral

Monday, September 20th, 2021

In this post we look at several data recovery enquiries from Liverpool.

Seagate makes strange noise
I have a Seagate HDD of 2TB. Last weekend I dropped it by mistake to the floor and now it is not working. When I plug it, the light on the HDD switches on and it starts to make a strange noise. I’ve tested it in a windows and a mac computer and it does not work in any of them. The USB cable is fine because I tried it with another HDD. I wonder how much would it cost to repair it or recover the data that contains. Thank you for the attention you can pay to this request I am in Liverpool.

Hard drive running slow
I am in Liverpool and close to Data Clinic’s Horton House office in L2. I have had this harddrive for about 8 years, it kept opening slower and slower until one day it just didn’t open on my laptop, before it “died” I tried to do a data recovery and some files were recovered however my step dad tried to do the same and it just crashed he said that a data recovery might be able to happen, I understand that all my photos might be gone forever, but I just thought I’d ask for a quote and your opinion! I work till six so email is probably best!

Hard drive doesn’t show
My external hard drive isnt working after the laptop battery ran out and it closed down. The hard drive is recognised in devices. But doesnt show the drive or files in windows explorer. If you look at events in the devices manager it says yesterday at the time the problem happened that the hard drive has not migrated due to partial or ambiguous match. I am in the Wirral and the closet Data Clinic office to me is in Liverpool.

SSD freezes
For the past few weeks I’ve been unable to proceed past the ‘logon’ screen on my laptop.
It would freeze either on the windows logo, at logon or after entering my password.
I’ve had a similar issue before, but was always solved by restarting a few times. Now, I cannot seem to get past it. I am near Chester and was hoping to call in at your Liverpool data recovery centre at Horton House.
I then ran dell support assist, decrypted using the bit locker key and then ‘repaired’ the system to an image it had taken from a month ago.
After this, the PC now no longer reached logon but rather shows a BSOD with the error code x0c000021a
I believe the SSD is still intact as support assist shows the data still at 150GB and i had tried to transfer it off myself but it doesnt complete.
