Data Recovery Issue:
Our customer’s drive fell and was making constant clicking sounds. Our customer powered on the drive 2 times for about 5 minutes each time.
We opened the drive cover in our Clean Room and initially everything looked great. The top platter was clean, no visible scratches. But when we removed the read/write heads and inspected the sliders under the microscope, it wasn’t good.
Data Recovery Update:
We decided to remove the platter from the drive to inspect the condition of Platter 0. Unfortunately the platter has a heavy noticeable scratch. This case is unrecoverable.
Clean Room Data Recovery Cost:
No Data = No Charge
WHERE TO FIND US?
Working with Five Star Data Recovery was a great experience. It’s never a fun day when you find that your data is in trouble…but the team at Five Star was very quick to answer questions on a weekend after hrs and then promptly got to work as soon as we dropped off our corrupt CFast card. The whole process was very clear, they communicated often and in detail and in the end were 100% successful in recovering everything we needed. Our footage was saved and it was top notch service along the way. The final invoice was exactly what he quoted at the beginning with no surprise costs. I 100% recommend Vahan and his team.
I am so thankful that they have 24/7 support on the phone. I just recently called after my hard drive fell onto carpet. They had all the answers and knew exactly what they were talking about. I would recommend them for hard drive support!
Can’t say enough good things about Five Star Data Recovery. Took my drive in and had the data back within 24 hours. I was even able to recover the “damaged” files, so pretty much a total recovery of 20 years worth of data. Yeah, yeah, I should have backed up my drive, but I’m just glad that Vahan and the Five Star team were able to get me back in business!
