We can recover data from all consumer devices, hard drives, flash drives and memory sticks by using the same techniques as the Department of Defense. Don't stress about it, let The Gadgets Guy recover it for you!

Lost Data? Your Next Steps are Crucial! To avoid permanent data loss, follow these important guidelines:

    • ✔   If your hard drive is making clicking, grinding or whirring sounds, shut down the drive or your computer immediately. These sounds could be the read/write heads hitting or scraping the hard disk platters. Severe or complete data loss could result.


    • ✔   If your data is critical, make sure you choose a reputable recovery firm that can properly recover data from mechanically failed or physically damaged drives. Even the simplest recovery attempts could render your data unrecoverable.


    • ✔   Avoid “home remedies” you may have read about on the web such as placing a non-spinning hard drive in a freezer or hitting a drive on its side. Much of this information is inaccurate and while some may claim success, these suggestions may actually harm the device and could lead to permanent data loss. We recommend that you do not gamble with your irreplaceable data.


    • ✔   The first recovery attempt is always the best recovery attempt. At The Gadgets Guy, our certified technicians use the safest methods available to ensure your data is not lost from repeated recovery attempts.


When Disaster Strikes:

    • ✔   If possible, back up your important data immediately


    • ✔   Do not use data recovery software if the hard drive makes scraping, tapping, clicking or humming sounds


    • ✔   Do not power up a device that has obvious physical damage or is making unusual sounds


    • ✔   Shut down the computer to avoid further damage to the drive and its data


    • ✔   Do not attempt recovery yourself on severely traumatized drives (wet, dropped, etc.)


    • ✔   Never assume data is unrecoverable


    • ✔   If you’ve lost critical data, The Gadgets Guy recovery service is your best and safest option
