R3 Data Recovery 4 star review on 12th July 2021
(Sheffield) -
Many thanks for the review. Glad we could be of service. In this case Patient Hard Drive : Clicking Toshiba MQ04ABD200 Assessment: Drive spins up but clicks and becomes ready, mods backed up, but drive very unstable needs CR inspection, probably been dropped In Lab Cleanroom Inspection: 2 platters and 4 heads (present) filter and chassis clean minimal rings Requires; Strip down, donor and rebuild. Donor sourced externally. Outcome : Successful recovery despite scratch rings Stats: Folders - 9833 Files - 85010 ( 110.74 Gb) Normal Files - 83636 Problem Files - 1374 Data returned on client supplied usb drive. Another successful recovery by the engineers at R3 Data Recovery the data recovery hospital.
My 1TB external hard drive stopped working several years ago & contained approx 5 years of family photos that I was not able to recover using various data recovery software versions. Having trawled the internet on numerous occasions, I came to the conclusion there are an awful lot of people trying to claim they can recover anything, but often at formidable cost upfront & no guarantee. The reviews of some of the more common companies did not make pleasant reading either & there was every chance of being ripped off & my data lost. So I decided not to risk my hard drive or my money. Due to family pressure, I decided to do another trawl this year & found R3 Data Recovery, which stood out as different as they had consistently good reviews for capability, cost, communication, good info video of the whole process, etc. So nervously I took the plunge. I would describe my own experience with R3 as being truly fantastic & reassuring from start to finish. From a simple email enquiry, communication was fast, clear & concise. They arranged courier pick up, on Monday, told me when it had arrived at site on Tuseday morning & gave me confirmation of a list of all of the recoverable files on same afternoon & what it would cost if I wanted to proceed. At £334 (including data transfer onto new stick) I regarded this as very reasonable for recovering 99.3% of my data & the stick was ready to be shipped back to me on Friday of the same week ! What incredible service !!!! So I can only speak very highly of the whole end-to-end process & would be more than willing to recommend them to anyone who felt as nervous about the whole thing as I had done for several years.

Thank you for your review of R3 Data Recovery In this case a 10 year old Western Digital 3.5" WD10EARS-00MVWB0 had developed bad sectors on one surface possibly as a result of a knock or abrupt power disconnect during its long service life. Although the data was inaccessible R3 were able to regain control of the existing head stack and recover the data without the need of a rebuild at the lowest price quoted during initial enquiry.

My laptop hard drive crashed and I thought I'd never see its files again. Then I referred it to R3, who I had come across several years prior through a YouTuber they had helped out, and their service was excellent. Once it was collected, they communicated updates to me at every step and managed to promptly return a full recovery, so I now have all those files back again exactly as they were. A little expensive but I understand that's just the nature of the industry and it was well worth it. I will definitely be using them again in future should the situation arise

Unfortunately, nothing that was saved on the original drive could be recovered by the repair shop. I have kept hold of it to refer it to recovery specialists."

Many thanks for your review Andy Your Seagate Drive Drive was spinning up but had a firmware issue due to bad sectors resulting in an incomplete passport, showing lock led CC error in terminal, this was patched and full SA backup SMP patched in RAM and sector access restored without need of new heads.. A 100% recovery of around 100GB of data made up of 1100 sub folders containing autocad drawings and word documents.

Extremely professional. First-class service from the moment of contact to the product arriving back in my care. I am very grateful to R3 Data Recovery for the information that they recovered for me - some work-related and some personal memories that I would have been very sorry to lose. Thank you!

Thank you for your review Andrew. To recover the data from a dead Liquid Damage Macbook Toshiba MK5055GSXF 500GB HDD required a donor pcb so the ROM could be swapped and to make the drive spin back up up. Once the passport and SA backed up sector access was restored and the HFS CAT file was 100% with a full 100% recovery of about ~250GB without the need of a rebuild.

R3 offered a quick and efficient service snd my data was restored much quicker than detailed and expected. I’m only a home-user but would recommend a business to use them if they need the service for their business-critical data.

Thankyou for your review of R3 Data Recovery. In this case your Samsung ST1000LM024 had a weakened head and required a rebuild using a fresh headstack in order to recover your data. Although there was significant surface damage the recovery of the priority data was successful. When choosing a data recovery service, the quality of the recovery is more important than getting a low quote or free assessment. In some cases a poor assessment of a failing drive or have a go hero approach to data recovery can make the situation worse and in some cases render a recovery impossible. R3 Data Recovery have built a reputation for recovering the unrecoverable and have thousands of donor drives for parts in our stock to help save time and maximise success rates.
Saved a long dead (10 years old) hard drive that had a botched recovery attempt by Fields Data Recovery. Reunited me with long lost data that i had almost given up on. Amazing service, so knowledgeable!

Thank you for your review Khalil you are one of the hundreds I have helped over the years affected by Fields Data Recovery / Rapid Data / Data Recovery Specialists, Data Phoenix and other Fields Associates Ltd Websites. The #fieldsdatarecoveryscam is an industry disgrace but unfortunately it is very profitable and designed to put smaller good data recovery companies out of business. Fields staff operate "sector domination by unrelenting growth" in practice this means making as much profit from easy work, taking risks with clients property and data, and declaring dat unrecoverable when it was recoverable before it went to Fields. The upshot is that Fields market domination has damaged thousands of businesses and consumers and continues to do so. Find out more on www.data-recovery-blog.com
After talking to Andrew who clearly knew his craft did I have no problems sending a broken HDD for recovery, and not only did they recover everything on it, they did it in a speedy manner and with amazing simple service, I felt that from start to finish did I have nothing to worry about and just had to wait for them to do their magic. Would use them again and recommend them to everyone who ever needs recovery done.

Thank you for your review Morten. In this case a 12 year old Western Digital WD WD3200BMVU-11A04S0 was clicking and needed fresh heads in order to achieve a successful recovery of your data. In order to do this a matching donor of the correct revision needed to be found which did take time to source but once the rebuild was completed the recovery was almost 100% with just 4 files affected by unrecoverable sectors caused by the original drop / head crash. Folders - 3311 Files - 50759 ( 254.88 Gb) Normal Files - 50755 Problem Files - 4 R3 Data Recovery is building the highest success rate data recovery lab in the UK and is recognised across Europe and the US for its continual development of solutions for drives declared unrecoverable or uneconomic to recover.
Quick, efficient and successful
Quick to respond. Excellent communication throughout. Did what they said they would do. Very pleased with the service and work done.

Thank you for your review of R3 Data Recovery In this case the Western Digital 1TB Laptop hard drive had suffered from a drop or knock sufficient to cause one of the heads to be damaged and the drive data rendered inaccessible. Fortunately you found R3 and a donor WD10JPCX-24UE4T0 was found and its heads used to effect an almost perfect recovery with just 346 files from 45,000 affected by the platter scratches and unreadable sectors. R3 - Repair, Recover Restore
Prompt, professional and reliable. Highly recommended.

Patient: Dell poweredge R410 8 years old RAID5 Bay 0 and 1 have issues 2 and 3 seem ok Bay 0: Top light is flashing green then orange and then going off, below it is constant green Bay 1: flashing orange and below it a constant green Bay 2: 1 constant green and below is a flashing green Bay 3: 1 constant green and below it a flickering green. A second drive stopped working and the BIOS screens is all we can see/get to Dell Enterprise SAS model ST3450857SS Despite the degraded state of the drives and the RAID volume, once all drives were recovered the data was extracted and returned on a password encrypted portable drive to be imported back into a freshly built RAID
Incredibly efficient and 100% successfully recovered my data. Very happy.

The guys did a great job of recovering some data from a drive which had been thrown out of a stolen machine. They were very professional and acted quickly to recover the data which helped the customer to get back up and working.

Glad we could be of help Steve When we heard of the situation your client was placed in during a burglary our Emergency data recovery service was asked to find and recover the FileMaker Pro databases from a batch of drives which had been removed from stolen equipment and disposed of in a skip. Luckily they were found and identified by police.
