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.

Seagate Data Recovery Manchester

Friday, June 28th, 2019

Recently my PC started running slow so I thought I would get more RAM (from 8Gb to 16Gb).
This didn’t really solve the issue.
Last week my PC was file transferring and came up with an error basically saving the destination drive wasn’t there.
This was my internal data drive (Seagate 1Tb Barracuda ST1000DM003) and I am in Manchester
With the drive still connected to the motherboard the system takes a good 10mins to get to desktop.
When it is removed my PC boot up in less than a minute.
2/10 times it can be seen as local drive G but cannot be accessed. I managed to see it in the management window as a RAW format drive (was NTFS).
I have had no luck with data recovery software as the drive is never seen/found.

manchesterI knocked my Seagate ST1000DM003 expansion over from upright to horizontal and it was on carpet so I cant understand why it has stopped working but it has. It’s not showing under file explorer but it shows under device manager with now yellow triangle. The computer is in Manchester and I am in Bury, is there a hard drive recovery clinic locally?

Why is bad sector/track remapping a limited process consuming a pool of spare sectors/tracks?
Why doesn’t the firmware/ software start to use the storage area on the disk to remap at the expense of file data lost? ie. let the linked lists grow until no useful free storage area is available, so, the disk capacity reduces over time. As the lists grow they can be extended to free areas on the disc. My Seagate Drive was dropped and now making clicking sound of death.
This is a Toshiba 1TB, external hard drive, few years old now.
Interested to know costs of fixing, potential success rate and how this is collected from me (live in Stockport, Greater Manchester) and how data is returned if successfully retrieved?

The USB jack has come off the main Seagate USB circuit; the pins on the jack have removed the copper from the circuit track, so makes it difficult to reconnect the USB jack. I am an apprentice who has a large sum of work documents on that USB stick, that I could really do with retrieving. I just wonder if this is a problem that you are aware of and can repair. Or whether you can retrieve the data? And how much it would cost?

Apple Mac Data Recovery in Liverpool, London and Manchester

Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

In this article we look at various facets of Apple Mac data recovery – particularly from hard drives. We recommend that if you are wanting to use a data recovery service to retrieve your Apple Mac files then you find a suitable data clinic recovery centre. These are available in Liverpool, London or Manchester.

Since an update to my Macbook OSX (to high sierra) the external drive is not being recognised by the Macbook. It used to be recognised by other macs running a previous operating system but now it is not being read by any mac. It is partitioned to exFat and Mac OS Journal. I have ran terminal commands and checked my system report but it doesn’t show in either nor in recovery mode or safe mode. I am based in Liverpool but the laptop is located in London. Do you have a Mac data recovery clinic in either Liverpool or London?

A local data recovery technician at home had looked at my Mac hard drive. He has taken it apart. This is what he said:
“Unfortunately the coatings that the information is stored on is scraped off in several areas from the disk and the heads that read info are also damaged so its therefore impossible to retrieve anything unfortunately.”
Is there anything you can do to rescue the files from the Mac hard drive? I am a school principal at a Manchester clinic and years of data and work is stored in this drive.

I have a Seagate 1tb external drive. it was working and then suddenly stopped showing on My Computer. It would click two or three time then stop. It took the Mac hard drive to several PC shops – in London, Liverpool and Manchester. All 3 recommended the data clinic recovery company on Lombard Street London. i took the drive to them and they returned it saying there is platter damage and that it is unrecoverable. what i need is a second opinion and im still hopeful some of my data is available. i have pictures and a report from them. all he has returned is the inner drive casing so there is no power plug or usb port.
my question is does this sound like something unfixable or is it something you could look at.

My little one poured some water on my Apple Macbook Air laptop. I did a short and long DST test and they both failed (I have the error code as well). Tried to connect the hard disk to the computer but was not able to open it using Apple Mac data clinic recovery software. I would like to save any data that can be saved from the hard drive.

Need Data File Recovered

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

I have a WD Passport for Mac, which i use to store my photos and music on. The Mac broke and i had to run disk utility in order to recover the data. I took the mac to Apple and they installed a new OS, and new Photos programme.
The files on the drive are now just showing greyed out, and the disk says there’s only 53kb of data in the photos folder. When i try to import them to the new photos, it says the file isn’t recognised.

Data Clinic data recovery staff

Similarly, my Hitatchi 4TB external windows HDD from 2012. Just stopped working one day, now makes a series of small clicks after being powered up. Displays as unformatted drive in Drive Manager.

I was referred to Data Clinic by my colleague at the firm I am working at in Glasgow. I am getting in touch to inquire about unlocking / recovering a WD Ultra Passport that I locked with a ATA password and cannot remember the password to. The drive is currently in locked state and I have not formatted it. I am willing to provide any information that would hail me as the owner of this drive if required.

When my external hard drive is plugged into a computer, the light goes blue as meant to.
However the drive doesn’t get listed on the file explorer, but it is recognised by the device manger.
It makes a very weird repeated buzzing noise when first plugged in that stops exactly after 10 seconds. The drive doesn’t show up and I need my files recovered.

I have sent in a 500GB SATA internal hard drive to Data Clinic in Glasgow branch that I have requested data recovery, along with a 1GB SSD drive to be used for the data transfer. I would like confirmation that Data Clinic have my drives and that they are in Data Clinic’c Manchester data recovery centre.

My Seagate Backup Plus external drive has failed. It makes a ticking noise when first plugged in and it is not discoverable so I can’t access any of my data.
