Whatever happened to your drive & data?
Bringing Data Back From the Dead

Sometimes, a failing hard drive will screech like nails on a chalkboard. Other times, its death will be eerily quiet. Either way, years of work - documents, digital photos and music, e-mail archives and your address book - can be gone in an instant. The simple truth is that hard drives are mechanical - and that makes failure more a matter of when, not if. And because so many people don't back up their data, the loss can be catastrophic. In many cases, though, that data doesn't have to be lost forever.

IT-Expert on Call's Data Recovery Service will recover your data if the hard drive's partition table, boot record, FAT/MFT or root directory are lost or damaged, data was lost due to a virus attack, the drive was formatted, fdisk has been run, a power failure has caused a system crash, files were lost due to a software failure, files were accidentally deleted.

Recover even when Windows doesn't recognize the drive

Our Data Recovery Service can even recover your data when the drive is no longer recognized by Windows. It can likewise be used even if all directory information - not just the root directory- is missing.

Get everything back

Our Data Recovery Service utilizes advanced algorithms that will make sure that all directories and sub directories are put together as they were, and that long file names are reconstructed correctly.

Our Data Recovery Service can recover data from:

  • Hard drives (IDE, SCSI, SATA)
  • USB drives
  • Firewire drives
  • Partitions
  • Dynamic Disks
  • Floppy drives
  • Drive images
  • Compact Flash Cards
  • Smart Media Cards
  • Secure Digital Cards
  • USB Flash Drive
  • iPod Disks

Let us do the recovery for you

IT-Expert on Call provides a reliable, speedy & cost-effective Data Recovery Service. We are highly experienced in recovering data lost due to all imaginable logical failures. If you lost data because the drive was formatted, f'disked, hit by a virus attack, files were deleted etc. we have the tools and knowledge to retrieve your data as long as it wasn't overwritten. We offer data recovery service for all kinds of media and for all Windows file systems. We charge $80.00 initially to remove the drive in question from your computer then in our lab to inspect and analyze the drive for data recoverability. After our inspection and analysis we will tell you which files we can recover and how much the actual recovery will cost. You can choose to proceed with recovery or not. From our experience the cost for data recovery can vary from $500 to $1,000 for a single Windows hard drive recovery.

Confidentiality: We respect your privacy. We do not discuss anything concerning your case/your data with anyone outside our technology laboratory. No one outside our technology laboratory will see or get access to your data or your drive. Since so much data is confidential [or even top secret], our data recovery policy is to not open or view files unless the client asks us to verify that the data is intact. We will gladly sign your confidentiality agreements.

For all data recovery cases that involve mechanically or otherwise physically damaged media - on drives that are so far gone that when attached the computer could not recognize that the drive is attached, we out-source the work to a "clean room" data recovery lab for a mechanical disassembly|reassembly process of recovery. A cost estimate will be provided after an analysis has been completed.
