Laptop Data Recovery
(Is your laptop drive inaccessible? Are you having trouble booting or are you hearing noises emanating from the hard disk? Click here for a free data recovery quote).
If you are a notebook user, chances are good that your notebook has your “life” stored inside of it. Notebook users tend to use their computers for more applications than desktop users because they can carry their laptop everywhere with them. That means that when notebook data loss occurs, it can be overwhelming because it seems like every piece of personal and work-related information is gone. At Hard Drive Recovery Group, we are notebook data recovery experts that offer hard drive data recovery that is secure, fast and available at an affordable cost.
According to recent PC sales data, mobile computers, particularly laptop computers, are being used more and more each year. It is a fast growing segment of the PC business, with many key reasons behind this trend. First, laptop computers are progressing very fast. The technology behind them, from the hard drive to the RAM, video to the processor, continues to improve as the years go on, which has created the concept of the “desktop replacement”. With this, the total use of laptops continues to grow. But unfortunately, the laptop is not a “perfect vehicle”.
Previous laptop systems offered extremely heavy weight, poor processing power, and extremely slow hard drives. This meant that notebook computers often operated at less than 50% of the power of desktop computer systems offering similar frequency processors. The result was a substandard portable computing environment, and featured laptop systems with a minimum price tag of $3-$4000.
Things have changed immensely as laptop computer systems have diminished in size, with recent laptop systems offering superior processing power and speed to that of their desktop brothers.
On the other hand, the need for laptop hard drive recovery has increased as a result of this. Because smaller laptop hard drives are stuffed into even smaller notebook computers, the heat of these laptop HDD units has increased immeasurably. In essence, heat is the number one cause of a situation where you will require laptop hard drive recovery.
The Dangers of Laptop Data Loss
All too often, notebook users do not adequately back up their hard drives because they tend to think that notebooks are less at risk of hard drives crashes and other breakdowns, as compared to desktop computers that are often linked to networks and servers. If this were the case, notebook data recovery would not be so necessary. But laptop computers are not less susceptible to data loss through physical or mechanical damage.
In fact, the notebook data recovery services we provide target a variety of data loss types. For example, laptops are more susceptible to being dropped or cracked, and an accident of this sort can certainly cause files to be damaged or corrupted, and drives to be damaged. Whether the problem is mechanical, physical, or resulted from environmental damage, our technicians will work hard to restore hard drive integrity to its original condition in one of our clean room facilities.
Laptops & Notebooks – Backup To Ensure Data Recovery
The problem with laptop computers: they are sealed. Because of their small, lightweight nature, specialized electronics must be used. These components must be free of dust in order to properly dissipate heat, and operate at their maximum efficiency levels.
Therefore, only authorized vendors (like Hard Drive Recovery Group) and the original manufacturer can open a laptop to investigate a problem that may require hard drive data recovery. These units are particularly susceptible to moisture and dust, and thus any data recovery attempt should only be made in an authorized clean room facility.
Backup Whenever Possible!
In order to save yourself a lot of trouble, it is important to do a data backup on your laptop at least once per week. This should be done on both portable media, such a DVD-RW, as well as on a network. If a network is not available, portable media should be changed up to ensure that the backup works 100% of the time.
Laptop Hard Drive Recovery Types
Today, the majority of laptop computers run on the Microsoft Windows 10 OS. This system is far superior than older Windows 95 systems, and are definitely much more secure than the Windows 98 and ME upgrade. Meanwhile, the Microsoft Windows XP operating system is still subject to some file system problems that may at first glance appear to be hard drive failure.
It is important to note that many of these apparent data losses are not in fact a case where you will require professional laptop hard drive recovery services. In fact, a simple file system error, while it may look as if all of your data is inaccessible, can be corrected quite easily with a data recovery software product such as those offered by Hard Drive Recovery Group. We encourage you to contact us, as we can typically diagnose your laptop hard drive problem over the phone, and provide you with the most cost effective solution.
We should also note that we do offer professional Mac data recovery services, and have helped thousands of Mac owners to return and recover files.
Portable Can Mean Trouble
Because laptop use continues to grow, particularly amongst sales forces and business people, they are subject to a lot of on-the-road abuse. The difficulty here is that more critical data is being stored on their hard drives, an issue which typically means that without a good data backup program, it takes a professional to provide laptop data recovery.
Hard Drive Recovery Group has specialized laptop computer data recovery experience in recovering files and data from laptop computers, whether data has been deleted accidentally or through formatting, or due to mechanical drive failures or outside forces such as fire or flood damage. Our flat rate pricing ensures that you only pay when we recover your data. It truly is as simple as that.
HDRG recovers data from hard disk drives in over 98% of cases, with an especially high rate for laptops. Our data recovery experts have the tools and facilities to ensure that your computer is returned to you quickly, with hard disk operational and your data recovered. Our data recovery methods are completely warranty compliant, and are recommended by such storage manufacturers as IBM, Toshiba, Samsung, Seagate, Western Digital and Hitachi.
Laptop Hard Drive Damage
Because laptops are extremely mobile devices, they are also subject to far more danger than that of desktop computer systems. Each year, thousands of laptop hard drives are subject to liquid spills, damage because of accidental dropping, and other physical hard drive damage issues, each requiring either hard drive recovery or clean room enabled HDD repair services.
Cases like these are especially critical, and must be diagnosed by a professional laptop hard drive recovery lab. Attempting to open in your laptop by yourself is it danger for not only the system itself, but the warranty. Many laptop manufacturers such as Dell, HP, and IBM Lenovo, will not cover your laptop in cases where you have opened it yourself.
Hard Drive Recovery Group offers laptop hard drive recovery services that are completely warranty safe, and completely secure. Our laptop hard drive recovery technicians are trained in the use of the clean room and can recover your data without any problems.
Laptop Data Recovery Process
If your laptop requires data recovery, you can apply for a data recovery quote here immediately, or call the toll free number above to speak to a technician now. We answer the phone 24 hours per day to ensure that we can handle your requests immediately.
Once you have called us, our technician will guide you through a series of questions to determine what kind of data recovery you will need, and help you to get the process started. In some cases, we can recover data within 24 hours.
You should also keep in mind that with a laptop, a data recovery expert does not necessarily need to have your hard drive or notebook sent directly to them. If you have accidentally deleted a single, yet vital file on your computer, a reliable data recovery expert should be able to offer you a software solution that does not require them handling your hard drive.
While there are many cases where laptop hard drive recovery must be performed in a lab, it is important that any data recovery shop know the symptoms before requesting this. Many laptop hard drive recovery companies in our industry currently ask users to ship their laptop PC immediately before any symptoms are discovered.
To properly package your system, read our instructions here.
Once we receive your laptop system, you will receive a call immediately from one of our engineers. From there your laptop is sent to our facilities for evaluation. During laptop hard drive recovery evaluation, we mirror the data on your disk, even if it is a physically damaged hard drive. This ensures that your data is available no matter what.
From there, we recover your data, and then bill you as per our flat rate price quote. If for some reason we cannot recover your data (under extreme conditions, it may be unrecoverable), you will not be charged, and we will send your system back.
Once your data is recovered from your laptop, we ensure that it is completely usable and intact. Then, we return the data backed up on media of your choice, and in many cases do perform the hard drive repair as well.
