Data Recovery – Deleted Files, Formatted Drive, Raw Partition, Mac File Recovery

IMPORTANT – If you experience any symptoms of  hard drive failure, the first and most important thing to do is turn your computer or external hard drive off right away. Continuing to use the drive may cause more damage or overwrite the data you’re trying to recover.

Pc Overhaul uses proven professional grade data recovery software to recover your files and data from a variety of data loss scenarios.

Deleted File Recovery

Accidentally deleted a file? Don’t worry. I can retrieve lost files after accidental deletion or emptying of the recycle bin or trash.

Formatted Recovery

Accidentally formatted a hard drive and want to recover the data? There’s a good chance the lost files are recoverable from an accidental hard drive format. Data recovery software can search for and recover most file types.

Raw Partition Recovery

Sometimes the file system on your computer can become corrupted. When this happens your hard drive partition becomes damaged and is seen as “RAW.” I can scan for all recoverable files from any inaccessible storage device and recover them by file type.

Mac Data Recovery

My professional level data recovery software can retrieve photos, videos, music files, documents, emails, and more from Mac-based devices, including macbooks and imac computers.

Other Reasons For Data Loss

There are many potential reasons for data loss, including virus infection, malware attack, failed Windows Update, bad or damaged backup process, human error, power surge or failure, system crash, OS re-installation/upgrade, hard drive crash, software crash, or other unknown reason.

Contact me if you are experiencing any of these issues and I will recover your data as soon as possible.

Creating a Data Backup Plan

In the digital world we live in, the only copy of our irreplaceable photos or important business data sits on a mechanical hard drive that can fail at any point without warning. Yikes!

Data loss can be devastating personally and professionally, and although data recovery is sometimes possible, the process is expensive and can’t always recover all of your files.

Creating a data backup plan can save you time and money if you have a hard drive crash. It may seem complicated, but it can be done fairly easily using the 3-2-1 backup strategy.

The 3-2-1 Backup Strategy

The 3-2-1 backup strategy is made up of three rules, which are:

  • Three copies of your data- Copy 1 is your original data (your primary copy). You should then have at least two backup copies.
  • Two different storage types- Both backup copies should be kept on two separate storage types to minimize the chance of failure. Storage types could include a USB flash drive, internal hard drive, external hard drive, removable storage drive, DVD, tape or cloud backup.
  • One copy offsite- At least one backup copy should be located offsite, away from your primary copy. This protects you from a natural disaster that could destroy all the local copies.

For example, let’s say your files are on the hard drive on your home computer. For your first backup copy, you can use an external hard drive, which you can easily access if you need to retrieve a file. You would then want to set up a cloud backup as your second (archive) backup copy.

If your computer hard drive fails, you can get your files back from either of your two backups. The external hard drive should be your first choice, because copying is much faster via USB cable than downloading from the cloud over your internet connection. But in the event your house catches on fire or you have a power surge that wipes out both the computer and the external drive, that cloud storage backup is going to be a lifesaver (and worth every penny).
