What to do if you can’t access your files?

USB Flash Drives Data Recovery Process

The first step in the data recovery process is to examine the drive to determine what type of damage has occurred.

If the usb flash drive has been physically damaged the drive wont need to be opened in a clean room, as it’s a different composition to a normal hard drive, but will need to be examined using specialised equipment.

If the damage is not physical, we will use specialised software to scan the drive and extract the data. This can often be done remotely, so you don’t even need to bring the drive into our office.

Once the data has been extracted, we will send you a list of the files and data recovered. You can then decide which ones you want to keep and we will send them to you on a new drive.

  1. Provide consultation in person. In this step, we have an initial diagnosis and provide information on the processes.
  2. Full examination of the device to find the exact fault. The the recovery solution that is most likely to give the best results at the best price is mapped out.
  3. We then explain the fault to you, we let you know the price and estimate time frame of the repair.
  4. Once approved, the recovery process will start and you will be contacted on completion of the USB drive recovery process, or if there are any major developments. Recovering data can take anywhere from an hour to days depending on the physical damage of the storage device and how smooth the file recovery process goes.
  5. We then send samples of the files for you to validate. Once you are satisfied, we transfer the recovered files to a new media device (you can provide or purchase)
  6. We retain your original disk & clone for a few days in case you have any issues with the recovered data. Following which, we would securely delete and destroy all the data.
