Thank you for your review of R3 Data Recovery Jim From your enquiry:- "Power surge over the weekend. Not spinning I need a bootable clone if possible otherwise just all files from the drive" The Toshiba P300 Desktop drive had sustained a head crash and left scratches on the platters but most of the data was recovered, in this case a bootable clone was not possible.

Communication was informative and timely throughout, my expectations were clearly set on the process that would be undertaken, the issues impacting potential success, the likelihood of recovering my files in the various options and throughout the actual process. The actual recovery process was much faster than expected and at every stage I was consulted to ensure that the approach met my needs. It's everything you could have wanted from this kind of service.

Thank you for your review Adam. You were fortunate to find R3 Data Recovery. "Card is a Micro SDXC, its been in use on my Android smartphone for a couple of years. Contents are mostly photos, some video files and music collection. Card had been working fine and then phone gave an error following restart that "card needs formatting". I extracted it and tried accessing it via a reader on my laptop which didn't detect the card at all." The card had developed bad sectors to the point is was corrupting the file system and some of the data. Team R3 have the experience technical capability and resources to maximise the quality of the recovery with only 55 not fully recovered out of 3031. *********************************** Folders - 1086 Files - 3031 ( 18.15 Gb) Normal Files - 2976 Problem Files - 55 *********************************** All data sent immediately invoice was settled by secure download.

Hi Ahemed Glad we could help with the recovery of your 11 year old Western Digital WD10EADS-11M2B3 Green, it had put in a good service. The slow response was solved by our engineers without the need for a rebuild and without the need for an extended bad sector recovery being less than a quarter full. The service was provided at ยฃ159+vat on a 24-72hr service plus costs for a new portable drive and return shipping. The miss communication was that I had also quoted the 4 - 6 day service at ยฃ129+vat Whilst the speed of the case may have appeared to be fast and easy, the processing still required our expertise, resources and procedures to deliver a full recovery and return the data securely on a password protected 1TB Westen Digital MyPasspot. Many thanks for the taking the time to leave a review.

r3 data recovery is real deal amoung lot of scams .they help recover data honestly and reliably. I had a raid problem , and i was not in good situation. I was getting quotations and reviews all over the place running in thousands. Then by pure chance i got in touch with r3data recovery I spoke to andy MD. I initially went to another supplier but after speaking to andy i decided to take my disks to him in person in sheffeild. Oarrival in sheffeild, Andy showed me his lab, and its the best lab I have seen. I am in IT myself, but R3/Andy/his team know what they are doing. Lot of people looking at desperations give mindless quotations and andy charged me what was fair and gave me the service and timelines which were real .I got phone call on every stepp. R3 recovvered my data next day, gave the disk to me, charged me absolutely fairly and i left with thanks and gratitute to andy /r3 AND his team. I will highly reccomend R3 . they have best team, labs and are not people who will try to take advantage. Thank you again. Aseem - I am happy to vouch for my experience to anyone- This is first review i am putting for a service, and i will put one up in other places as well

Thank you for your reviews of R3 Data Recovery. You were right to check out the various data recovery labs nearest to you, although a longer distance of travel the chain of custody was maintained and all GDPR / Data Protection procedures observed to meet your clients requirements. I did the following post on Linkedin. Andy Butler Operations Manager R3 Data Recovery Freephone 0800 999 3282 Local Number 0117 2591020 Something never said "I can see the data! It is there in the filter it just needs the black particles sticking back to the platter surface in the right order.... " The montage is an example of a drive that was part of a failed RAID 5 that came in for emergency data recovery Monday evening, driven up from Western Super Mare by the server administrator who wanted to personally correct the mistake made not checking the Backups which were 20 days behind. First visiting Bristol Data Recovery and considering 2 other data recovery specialists in the Fields of Wales but then continuing on to Security House in Sheffield arriving at 7:30pm. This member disk had failed before the #covid19 lockdown and was in a server room unattended other than remote access. The decision was made to run in degraded mode until a replacement was found. This was forgotten, the extended pandemic affecting staff availability and travel. Fortunately still a full recovery by R3 Data Recovery Ltd Britains data recovery Hospital for Businesses and Consumers. VM VHD HDD SSD The client stayed in a local hotel overnight, whilst two of the drives were imaged and the other two were inspected. Initially, we could not be sure that the most damaged was the first to fail but ultimately it was and a full recovery was possible from the other three once bad sectors had been read from them. The recovered data was collected Tuesday afternoon and the client was able to drive straight back to his offices.

My heart sank when my old 2GB flash drive 'died', knowing there was a lot of important and historical data on there. Advice from a family friend led me to R3 and I'm so glad I entrusted the recovery with them. The majority has been recovered with several corrupt files but I have the main ones I was hoping for! The service has been exceptional - extremely prompt response to my initial inquiry, excellent communication and customer service throughout, and organised collection and return of the drive. I shall learn by my mistake and make regular backups but I shall certainly know where to go if needed again! I can't thank the whole team enough.

Hi Samantha The old memory stick had served well but needed a NAND chip read to recover the data. "The device appears to be dead. I have tried recovering the data using software but failed." Unfortunately, the FAT32 file system was damaged and so only a raw recovery was possible but the data was in good condition and could be moved back into a recreated folder structure.

After being told my hard drive was damaged beyond repair, I was recommended to use R3 data recovery. Nothing was too much trouble, always at the end of the phone and gave an amazing professional service. Highly recommend and a massive thank you to Andy Butler who went above and beyond at all times:)

Thank you for your review. I am sorry we did not communicate how factors out of our control caused interruptions in our workflow, communications and affected the time taken to process your case. The first collection arranged failed and it took a week to arrive from your first enquiry, It arrived on Thursday and the SSD was removed from the MacBook Air. The next day Friday it was assigned to an engineer and diagnosed as having a failing Samsung SSD. He continued processing the recovery from the Monday but that week was also moving home after the long lockdown that he had worked through but had prevented him from finding a new house. By the end of the week, the work was well underway and the bad sectors were slow reading and needed time to process. He needed to finish early on that Friday to take possession of the keys and start the move over the weekend. This was the last time I saw him alive. He was found dead on Monday morning. We were in shock... This followed one of our support technicians who had died several weeks before, this was despite him being kept away from the lab for 15 months and double jabbed. We had thought the end of the pandemic restrictions were over and the safe working processes had protected us from the worst of the pandemic. Your case was reassigned to another engineer but we did have to allow time for all in the team to deal with the loss of a friend, colleague and good person. Both were fathers and family providers who had been with the company for over 5 years. All in R3 are members of a hard-working team but not immune to the effects the world has presented and sorry we could not at the time explain the situation. The recovery was still carried out to the maximum quality of data possible. These Samsung SSD are not designed to be recovered and required time of specialist equipment requiring regular monitoring and adjustments by the engineers assigned. As you can see from our reviews we work to protect data and run one of the highest success rate data recovery labs in the UK and remain a team dedicated to helping those in their hour of need. I hope this open and honest reply helps you understand that we continued to deliver on our work and the recovery quality was not a result of the situation we found ourselves in. SSD are technically progressing towards failure from the minute they are first turned on. Andy Butler R3 Data Recovery Security House Sheffield S4 7WB

Hi Sara Glad we could be of service,R3 Data Recovery have built what is well known in the Fields of data recovery as the data recovery specialists to call when a western digital hard drive is dropped or knocked. The 4TB model WD40NMZW-11GX6S1 required a specific method to unlock access controls that allowed the ability to control the heads individually. This actually resulted in a calculated 97% data integrity, with just a few affected by unreadable sectors in the data areas affected.

Glad we could be of service George. Your MyBook had put in almost 15 years of service before becoming inaccessible due to bad sectors, possibly as a result of power fluctuations. The enquiry gave a good indication that the drive was recoverable. "This My Book WD hard drive connected to my iMac running Catalina OS can no longer be seen by the Mac. Pressing the circular ON button causes the LED to light yellow and I can hear a faint whirring but not the normal firing up noise like when it was working OK. I have checked the cables and changed ports on the Mac. Also checked PSU is delivering 12V to the drive."
Excellent company to deal with. Highly professional and patient and no pressure to get the files. The only company to do it. All other ones are scams.

Although we could not guarantee a full recovery, in this case, we can say that we have higher success rates than most datarecoveryspecialists who claim to be experts in their Fields ! "Seagate ST2000DM001 Hard disk drive used as file storage froze on opening document. Checked events in Device manager - device not migrated due to ambiguous match. No longer shows in Bios or on the computer. Taken drive to pc shop for data retrieval via software but no success informed likely to be a mechanical failure as it makes clicking noises and only spins up briefly. Narrowly avoided sending to Fields data recovery before searching R3." For those unaware- Find out more about how Fields Data Recovery Operate. Search Fields Data Recovery scam Those getting recoveries from Fields are unaware that many are defrauded and worse have their Trustpilot reviewer accounts hacked to leave fake 5 Star reviews and that Fields own staff admit their success rates are below 40% meaning only the easiest work is sold as "forensic data recovery" with many victims being unaware that they are sharing their data with a company that is known to use the data they recover for their "own nefarious use". Fields Associates / Data Recovery Services are also posting fake reviews and buying reviews. They have also been forced by the Attorney General Office in the US to give "Refunds" but consider where the money comes from to give victims of a scam those "Refunds" www.data-recovery-blog.com

Hi Jamie Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. From your initial enquiry, "force quit whilst using Lightroom of the LaCie / Apple Mac / 2yr old / 4TB not clicking buzzing or beeping" The Seagate-ST4000LM024 BarraCuda 4TB had sustained minor platter damage, this caused bad sectors that prevented the drive initialising. After R3 had made repairs to the ROM and regained control of the heads an almost full recovery of over 99% of 3.1TB of data was recovered without the need of a rebuild or unnecessary work and therefore cost. Glad R3 could re unite you with your data. Andy and the Team at R3 www.r3datarecovery.com 0800 999 3282
