Each year Datlabs repair and recover data from many hundreds of faulty external hard drives of all makes and models. The physical size and use of these devices renders them vulnerable to knocks,drops, liquid damage, electrical and mechanical failure.

At the Datlabs data recovery service centre our technicians will immediately diagnose the exact nature of the problem whilst you wait. Following on they will then replace faulty components, reprogram the drive, extract and test the data and copy this to a new and reliable compatible portable drive type ready to be returned to your home or business address.

Data Rescue and Data Restore.

The bulk of our work involves Data Recovery Services from hard disk drives, so it is worthwhile briefly describing some of the activities that our technicians undertake when recovering your data from a faulty hard drive.

  • Swapping, repairing and reprogramming damaged hard drive PCBs, including those with on board USB connector. e.g Western Digital MyPassport
  • Substituting and testing ROM Chips
  • Hard Disk Drive Read Write Head stack replacement, this work is normally associated with “Clicking” or “Buzzing” Hard Disk Drives
  • Hard Disk Drive Platter Swap Out, Our technicians will perform this work in the case of a seized spindle motor. It is a complex and fiddly process involving specialist tools and the meticulous alignment of components in their new hard drive assembly
  • Hard disk drive read write head replacement. Our technicians undertake this work in over 60% of the hard drive failures we receive in our Labs. The work involves exact parts matching and sourcing. The use of specialist tools and test equipment i.e. hard disk drive imaging tools that can create read write head maps, deal with bad sectors and read errors and facilitate the transfer of data from the repaired hard drive
  • Once the Datlabs technicians have restored operational functionality to your hard disk drive they will then proceed to extract the data and transfer it to suitable return media

Returning your Data.

The quality of the extracted data is manually checked by our data recovery technicians. Once the data has been validated we will send you an email file list for you to check. Once you are satisfied with the content we will transfer your data to an external hard disk drive or equivalent storage media ready for transport or collection.

Datlabs will retain a copy of your recovered data for upto 14 days just in case there is a problem with the data we returned to you. For your own security and peace of mind all copies of any data stored on the hard disk are securely erased.

Hard Drive Repair Workshops.

Clicking and Buzzing Hard Disk Drives.

Faulty Hard Disk drives that exhibit clicking or buzzing noises generally have a damaged read write assembly that requires replacement in order to return it to a working state.  The damage can be a consequence of a simple knock or drop that has resulted in the head contacting the recording media platters that rotate at 7000 rpm. The subsequent damage means the head assembly will not initially read data intended to control the operation of the drive. This malfunction produces an error and a number of retries under the control of the drive operating system that produce an audible clicking sound.  Our  data recovery service center has an installed purpose built high tech walk-in Clean Air and ESD compliant facility that extends to over 1200 square feet. This facility is  equipped with specially designed tools for the  purpose of dis-assembling, decontaminating, repairing and rebuilding damaged hard disk drives. This facility  is necessary for,  amongst other things,   the  replacement of  precision hard disk drive read write heads. We have industry leading diagnostic applications and test gear and newly developed methods and procedures such as hard disk platter removal, cleaning and realignment. We are totally unique in our capability of recovering data from  damaged, corrupt, clicking and  buzzing hard disk drives and operate at unrivaled success rates.
