"My external hard drive was damaged and all the video data belonging to a wedding I was on it. I sent it to Fields Data Recovery and paid £299 plus vat for them to recover it. After a few weeks and offered to dispose of the disc themselves. I refused to allow them to do this and asked them to return it to me. I then found an advert for R3DATA and thought I would them , more in desperation than hope. A few weeks later the news cam back from them them that they had managed to recover all the data . I have since had my money returned from Fields after threatening legal action against them. If you have a damaged external hard drive I would recommend that you contact R3Data first . They are not the cheapest but you will get excellent service from them,"
Thank you for your review, unfortunately your experience of our competitor is not uncommon and we regularly recover drives declared by data recovery specialists who claim skills and resources they do not have.
Although R3 Data Recovery Ltd is a relatively small company it is one of the very best data recovery teams assembled anywhere, both in the UK and internationally we are recognised for building processes to maximise success rates. R3 has rebuilt the Security House Lab first developed by ABC Data Recovery and bought out several competitors to achieve the scale needed to provide a true data recovery hospital service nationally.
I remain dedicated to developing the teams capacity and improving its capabilities to ensure more home users and small businesses get a fair deal and best chance of recovery.
