Data Recovery (or anaktisi dedomenon in Greeklish) is the proccess of restoring data, that were unaccessible for whatever reason, from a hard disk, usb flash pendrive or any other storage system that has sustained logical or mechanical (physical) damage. Logical Data Recovery refers to the process of saving the data from a media that has logical problems (format, virus, even accidentaly deleted files) while Physical Data Recovery refers to the process of performing data exctraction from drives with mechanical failure.
Data Recovery is a specialized branch of information technology, which is dedicated to restore inaccessible data from the user. This process involves technicians with specialized knowledge, special equipment and is governed by strict rules in order to ensure the best possible success rate.
Data Recovery in Greece is carried out by very specific companies that have expertise, skilled personnel and infrastructure (such as firmware recovery tools for hard disks, specialized diagnostic equipment, and machinery for restoration of electronic failures).
Common cases we face :
- Did you delete your files by mistake or format your hard disk ?
- Your hard drive has stopped responding or you have no access to the files ?
- Your Flash USB is not recognized by any computer ?
Which Companies provide Storage Medium have a high success rate in Data Recovery?
In Tik Tak Data Recovery labs, we can recover data from magnetic or electronic media by the following companies, among others: Western Digital, Seagate, Toshiba, Quantum, Hitachi, Samsung, Fijitsu, LG, TDK, Lacie, Verbatim, Sandisk, Kingston, Sony, Transcend, Lexar, Apple, Olympus, TwinMOS, OCZ.
We have high success rates in systems that failure arose suddenly, without any fall or wear of the disk. In those cases where the medium comes directly in our laboratories, the success rate reaches 99%.
Low recovery rates occur when the disk is opened by another company, the user himself has attempted to test his own dubious quality techniques or by a fall occured scratches inside the disk. In these cases, the success rates are very low.
