Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Recovery 

CBIT Data Recovery have recovered data for thousands of clients nationwide, with the ability to recover from virtually any digital device that can store data.  From the individual or family after those precious photos, to the enterprise/government agency whose production environment has gone down, and everyone in between, we can help you! The best chance for recovery is the first chance, so it is important to stop using your device and power it off to prevent any further issues from arising.

We can recover data from virtually any internal or external HDD. The common drive types we see are:

  • 2.5” (USB-A & Type-C, IDE, SATA, SAS, SCSI)
  • 3.5” (USB-A, IDE, SATA, SAS, SCSI, Fibre Channel)
  • 1.8” (IDE, ZIF, LIF) 

Whatever the issue may be, our team of specialists have seen it all. The main HDD issues we see daily include:

  • File System Corruption (Failure to Mount, Not Initialised)
  • Lost or Deleted Data (Formatting, Partitioning)
  • Electronics Failure with the Printed Circuit Board (PCB)
  • Bad Sectors (Read Errors, Slow or Drives that Freeze)
  • Damaged Read/Write Heads and/or Failed Drive Motor
  • Natural Disaster (Fire and/or Flood Damage) 

Common brands we work with daily

The most important step is to STOP using your HDD, power it off immediately to prevent any further damage to the disk. In almost every case where the disk is no longer being used following a data loss incident, the data can typically be recovered and is often the crucial step to a successful outcome.
