Macbook Pro Data Recovery
The the Apple Macbook Pro, these usually ship with a Toshiba or HGST hard drive from the factory. The cooling on these models just isn’t up to the job. A few years of use and the the fans get filled with dust. This in turn makes the Mac run hotter than it should. Eventually the hard drive begins to fail due to the high temperature inside. The good news is the drive failure is usually recoverable if sent to a professional in recovering data.
Macbook Air Data Recovery/Macbook Retina
The Macbook Air and Retina Macs are a completely different beasts when it comes to storage and data recovery. These Macs use SSD drives (Solid State Drives). These work in a completely different way to normal hard drives. They have no moving parts and are very fast for data access but are generally much lower capacity. These SSD Drives have a life span, they can only be read/written to so many time before the drive will fail. Always be aware of this and have a backup for when the time comes. When an SSD drive does fail retrieval can be complicated, compression and encryption of the data can be time consuming to overcome.
Imac Data Recovery
The original Imac, brings back memories. My sole purpose is to get your precious data back. When possible we prefer the Apple Device to have the hard drive or SSD drive removed for us to get to work on straight away. If this is not possible then we will do our best to help. The drives insides these Imac’s are usually made by Seagate and Western Digital. The latest ones are Hybrid drives (Hard drives with a solid state cache to make the drive faster). From our experience the Seagate drives are the DM series of hard drives which are known to have various reliability issues throughout the data retreival industry.
