Hi Christine, Many thanks for the review, the team at R3 have been developing the best value high success rate data recovery services in the UK for over a decade. We have specialist Western Digital data recovery engineers and the resources to most often quote the best price based on the symptoms and model of the drive before it arrives. For those reading it is important to choose a real data recovery lab. Just because a company claims to have ISO 27001 or ISO 9001 accreditation does not mean it is a company that you can trust to deliver the highest success rates. There are many in the Fields of data recovery who are not what they seem, and we have been helping many of those scammed by a group of companies in Wales who dominate the data recovery searches then cherry pick the easiest work. This has resulted in many not getting a good recovery despite paying much more than we have quoted but misled by a "free assessment. It is important to do your research and find a reputable and consistently reliable data recovery lab like R3 Data Recovery ๐ŸŒŽ www.R3datarecovery.com โ˜Ž๏ธ 0800 999 3282 WD5000AAKX
R3 did a great job of retrieving all the precious photos from my daughter's smashed iphone. Our local phone repair people and Apple said they couldn't do it so I was delighted when the R3 team got them all back. The customer service was absolutely excellent and the process from collecting my phone to getting the photos back was flawless. I would definitely recommend the team to anyone needing to recover their data. Thank you!!

Hi Chris Thank you for the review and the chance to let potential clients know we can recover data from iPhones that Apple stores and mobile phone repair shops cannot. And many thanks for your recommendation of a supplier that has already helped R3 make an annual saving that will help keep competitive pricing. "The iPhone has been thrown hard on the floor - twice - and badly broken. it contains 2 years of my daughters photos which we are desperate to recover as they were not backed up." We have been recovering data from damaged iPhones since 2009 and were one of the first in the world to solve error code 14 in late 2020.

Many thanks for your review Randeep. It is good to hear you were able to complete your projects on time which at the time of your call was your main concern. "Hi. My USB stick has been ejected prematurely and now is not recognised. It might be RAW. I need help to retrieve the data please!" The controller on the 32GB memory stick had failed but the data was recovered by lifting the NAND chips, creating a dump of the memory banks then reassembling the data and file system. If your memory stick fails or is damaged and the data is important call team R3 Data Recovery on Freephone 0800 999 3282 or visit the website to use the contact form and learn more about Britains best data recovery hospital!

I used R3 Data Recovery Ltd following the complete failure of an external drive on which I kept all my data, both personal and professional. I can't begin to explain the level of distress and crisis the loss of this data caused. However, I greatly appreciated the time and the reassurance I was given by my first point of contact who talked me through the process of diagnosing and suggesting a solution. After this, I was given time to decide the options for service and followed the procedure for dispatching the external drive to the repair experts. I was kept informed at every stage and I am delighted to say that my data was recovered ( and placed on a new drive. I feel this was overall excellent service.

Hi Joan Thank you for taking the time to leave a review to help other looking for help with a failing or failed Western Digital portable drive. The donor needed for the rebuild was sourced from within our own parts stock which consists of over 7000 tested and catalogued hard drives from the last 10 years ensuring we can save time and money through efficiency as well as keeping the cost down for the highest possible success rates. Out of 48,000 files there were only 6 which had some unrecoverable sectors. A good result for a drive previously deemed unrecoverable by another data recovery lab. Andy and the Team at R3 Data Recovery National Freephone 0800 999 3282
Very professional and prompt service, and actually managed to retrieve some important files for us, with the minimum of bother. Particularly impressed by the way in which collection and delivery were organised.

Thank you for your review Peter, The Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB hard disk drive from 2008 had degraded over the many years of use. To be fully recoverable it would need a rebuild with fresh heads but the original heads were not causing damage and our R3 engineers saved time and cost by controlling the heads to just target the critical data needed.

Hi Richard, It was good to meet you when you visited Security House. I did a Linkedin post assist with the recovery of your video archive from the G Speed Studio R Raid 5 unit 4bay with 4 Hitachi HGST HUS726040ALE614 . Wow! Amazing news Andy. I can collect tomorrow if that's ok and not putting out out at all being Sunday? Again... fantastic news ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‘‡ When a G-Tech RAID "popped" the concern was that the drives had failed and collection was arranged for it to go for #datarecovery to specialists in their Fields. But something did not feel right๐Ÿšฉ I personally took the early morning enquiry on Friday listened to the description from a potential client who was in the process of deduplicating data and had prepared his other unit to transfer to. He explained after several enquiries he had already found an online quote from one of Europes Largest data recovery labs ยฃ97 - for 4 x4TB RAID with 10.92TB of data. - A Bargain โ‰๏ธ As a professional and a normally fastidious manager of data he knew it would take time and was concerned that the Fields Data Recovery Specialists "account manager" was just too slick for a ยฃ97 online quote from an ISO9001 global company with offices in Pall Mall and Canary Wharf in London and HQ in Bridgend Wales who had been calling non stop even after he had asked them to stop. This triggered a second search Fortunately he found the data recovery blog. www.data-recovery-blog.com The UK and Europe Account Manager of Fields is Also Account Manager for Data Recovery Specialists, Rapid Data and Fields Data Recovery in St Louis Missouri USA. A big hitter one of the "Friends of Fields" who deceives and defrauds and also in my experience known for his "bonuses" and believes he is the best at what he does - and he is, but it also means many have been defrauded by him and his colleagues ... The client had decided to call R3 and spoke to me Andrew Butler after finding my posts about the problems in data recovery that I have tried to help prevent but also been damaged by. If you are not aware I founded R3 Data Recovery Ltd Britains data recovery Hospital for Businesses and Consumers. We recover data from VM VHD HDD SSD USB Mobiles, well almost anything that stores inaccessible data. I am a Director, an operations manager and Disaster Recovery team coordinator, but I also help out on enquiries when lines are very busy๐Ÿ˜Ž I help those affected by and at risk from those that "profit" from the #fieldsdatarecoveryscam I explained it would be very unlikely that he needed data recovery but if he needed time critical data transfer there is a fixed cost and providing it is in the lab Friday it would be ready for despatch / collection Monday. He set off and was driving direct to Security House and despite a closure on a section of the M1, a diversion and additional 90 mins driving he arrived as the lab was getting lunch. I was able to give a tour of the lab which had been refurbished since its last video tour but still essentially the same as it has been for 16 years. After an R3 technician completed booking in and an R3 engineer confirming the Hitachi Drives were working fine, 2 x 6TB and 2x 8TB image drives were selected to image to, imaging commenced and completed around 11pm Friday night. The first 7TB of data completed transfer overnight, the remaining during Saturday ready for Sunday The two 8TB WD Reds were file listed and ready for collection on the Monday. ๐Ÿ’พ R3stored by R3 โ˜Ž๏ธ0800 999 3282 ๐ŸŒwww.r3datarecovery.com https://www.linkedin.com/posts/r3-data-recovery-ltd_datarecovery-fieldsdatarecoveryscam-activity-6868260588699561984-WB9-

Hi Sean Thank you for your review of R3 Data Recovery. Although the drive had been opened by Fileds Data Recovery Specialists and deemed beyond economic repair, their diagnosis was also wrong. Their diagnosis had failed because of a detail that either they did not know or did not want to take the time to bother to address without significant upfront charges without any guarantee of a recovery. Fortunately you were able to get a second opinion from R3 Data Recovery, we had the correct revision of the Seagate ST2000DM001 2TB in stock needed to do the recovery. It is impossible to say if the previous work by Fields had made the drive worse but we were not able to get all of the data so prioritised just what was needed which was around 90GB ************************************* Folders - 101 Files - 17147 ( 90.16 Gb) Normal Files - 17128 Problem Files - 19 ************************************* But all in all a successful recovery and as your review attests we are pleased that the service you received from R3 Data Recovery was of the highest quality.

Hi Paul, thank you for the review. From your emquiry it was clear the drive was working upto a point but the data needed was not accessible or recoverable by software. "2 x Partitions. Drive operates and data recovery software has attempted to rebuild the directory, but fails." In this case 1 of the 6 heads was dead resulting in some of the data needed being inaccessible without a rebuild with fresh heads. To minimize cost the 5 good heads were used to recover as much of the data needed as possible. This gave the result needed saving time and money.
The team at R3 Data Recovery was honest from the start, they quoted me a very fair price with no hidden charges and managed to get most of my files back for a third of what other companies had quoted me. They were friendly, very responsive and easy to trust with my most valuable family pictures. I would recommend them wholeheartedly. Thanks again guys.

Hi Veronique, glad we could be of assistance and saved you money in a situation that for some would have been quoted more, the over the phone analysis indicated a rebuild should not be necessary in this case and it was understandable that you wanted time to ask the opinion of other data recovery specialists who claim to be experts in their fields. "I copied the data from my old hard drive to paste it onto my new one and some of the folders seem to have failed to transfer. I therefore need to recover the data from the original hard drive." The old 2009 Western Digital 320GB WD3200BEVT-11ZCT0 had certainly served you well.

I was very impressed with R3, their service was exactly as described and when things got more tricky they stood behind their commitments, going above and beyond my expectations. In a sector that has some cowboys it's good to know where the good guys are. I had an old PC with a 10 year old WD drive in it that failed, R3 quickly recovered the data, copied it to a fresh drive and returned it. When I hit problems they were quick to help out solving them.

Thank you for the review Jules, Glad we could be of Service.
