Seagate Data Recovery Specialist

Seagate Data Recovery in Edinburgh. This drive was handed in by an employee of a University after their IT department couldn’t get any data from the drive.  The drive hadn’t had an impact.   It showed no signs that failure was just around the corner.  At JT we are a Seagate Data Recovery Specialists.  The concern was if the window of opportunity may have been missed.  If a hard drive has a hardware issue then running the drive on software to extract data usually ends in disaster.

After the evaluation process we managed to get access to the drive.  But even on the specialist imaging machine we still had a hell of a lot of data not being read correctly.  Fortunately his drive is a DM2 and not the dreaded Seagate DM1.  The DM1 has a very high failure rate and can be expensive to recover the data from.  Donor drives can be expensive because even the good ones fail earlier than expected.
