Data Recovery


Our friendly team are here to help recover your data. Email or give us a call now!

Fast action!

We understand the time critical nature of central server and nas box failures. Countless times we have worked through 24 hours and weekends to return the data quickly, and some times for the next morning so that the organisation can continue to work on their files, documents databases and spreadsheets.

Data Recovery covers anything from modern Raid, Virtual Disks, iSCSI, all the way back to older SCSI Compaq servers.
We also write our own data recovery software, and bespoke recovery from optical disks or old proprietary unknown file systems.
We recover systems with a variety of operating system, e.g. Windows, Macintosh, Novell, Linux and Sun Solaris.
