Is professional data recovery from a damaged hard drive always successful?
When it comes to damaged hard drives and professional data recovery, there are certainly no guarantees. The type of damage sustained – whether it is the very common bad sectors issue or less common problems like fire or flood – will help determine if and how data can be recovered. But, the good news is that with more sophisticated data recovery equipment and the increasing number of highly skilled technicians, professional data recovery is becoming more and more successful.
The most important thing to do with your computer if you fear hard drive failure is to get it to a professional immediately. All to often, when people are faced with the malfunction of a computer on which they rely heavily, is to try and fix it themselves. What many people do not know is that a hard drive is a disk – a piece of hard equipment that can be further damaged by something as basic as powering the computer on and off. Even more tech-savvy computer owners need to be careful when trying to diagnose and fix a damaged hard drive on their own. Even something as simple as attempting to dry out a hard drive that found itself having your morning coffee can cause more damage than the original spill. There is always residue left behind by liquid damage (even with plain water). Specialists time and again experience more trouble with recovery when the computer owner has attempted to intervene. Leaving the computer exactly as it was when the trouble began will drastically increase your chances of full data recovery.
Another very important thing to consider when seeking data recovery solutions is to get a second – even third – opinion. Just because one technician tells you that your information is non-recoverable, it doesn’t make it so. The level of expertise they have as well as the quality of recovery equipment can make a big difference in the outcome. Professional data recovery tools and software are rather costly. In fact, some independent technicians or upstart companies simply do not have the resources that are required.
We all know that backing up one’s important documents and files is the best way to keep things safe. However, we also know that things happen. And, when they do, remember to stay calm. Step away from the computer and find yourself a competent professional.

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!
