Recover Data from Hard Disk Crash or Corrupted Partitions

Crashed hard drives? Corrupted HDD and other media not detected by your operating system?

In case you're led to this page through search engines, I know I don't have to remind you to create backups of all your precious data in your hard drives, compact flash (CF), memory stick (MS), Secure Digital (SD), MMX, USB Flash Disks (Thumb drives), and other media. Losing precious files, sometimes precious memories not just pictures, is really such a pain in the *** but there're services and solutions out there to recover your data even partially if you have the money for it.

There are many free data recovery software/utility available in the Internet that you use to successfully recover files from a corrupted USB thumbdrive. The free tools can can also be used to undelete files.

Recovering data from physically damaged hard drives involves qualified engineers and technicians, often involving a clean room and spare similar hard drives to replace damaged parts of the disk including the electronics, heads and motor.

There also were claims that freezing your defective hard drive will correct the clacking sound and make it work again but most of them are accidental "magic" recovery for a limited time only after the drive is taken out of the freezer and data copied immediately. (try booting Knoppix or other bootable CDs, mount the hard disk then copy the files you need)

Data recovery services in the Philippines is still scant and expensive, you can have your data/pictures recovered by professionals but for a stiff price.

  6. Hi! I know its been a while since your post, but I came across it after my HD broke. I'm pretty sure its mechanical because of the clicking sound it makes. I was wondering if you know of any data recovery companies I could call? I saw one online that sends the drive to Singapore, but I imagine it gets really expensive. I would prefer one based here. thanx!
