Terms and Conditions of Service

 


 

HARD DRIVE RECOVERY


Level 1- "Logical failure"

Hard Drive is in good condition. There are no “clicking” sounds, and is recognized by the operating system.  The hard Drive motor is spinning, and all the internal parts are functioning correctly, but data or some of the data are missing. Hard Drive in logical failing states has a very high chance of recovery. This may be caused by the following:

Damaged MFT/FAT tables ◦ Humans Errors (accidental deletions) ◦ Partition Errors
◦ Formatting Corruption ◦ Corrupted Software ◦ Virus or Malware Infections

Contact us for free consultation. Click here  (see pricing below)

Level 2 - "Drive Failure"

Hard Drive has some physical damage.  At this level, opening or performing operation to the hard drive is not yet necessary in order to recover the data. Hard Drives at level 2 “Drive failure” State have a generally good chance of data recovery, when employing the use of our data recovery equipments and extensive knowledge. Symptoms at this level include:

◦ Firmware Errors ◦ System Locks up ◦ Severe Bad Sectors ◦ Unreadable data sectors
◦ Prolific SMART Errors ◦ Freezing ◦ Occasional clicking ◦ Will not boot

If the Hard Drive has the following symptoms, there is a chance that you may be losing some of your data and not even know it. Stop using it immediately, and contact us to ensure that your data are not lost.

Level 3 - "Mechanical Failure"

Hard Drive has bad physical damage. One or more of the hard drive mechanism is not working correctly. There may be clicking or clunking noises due to stuck or faulty motor. Furthermore, the hard drive disc may have trouble spinning or might not spin at all. In order to recover data at this stage, a clean-room is required to disassemble the drive and replace or repair broken parts. Mechanical Failures can be caused by the following:

◦ Damaged Modules ◦ Dropping the Hard drive ◦ Electrical shorts (burnt circuit board) ◦ Moisture or Liquid damaged

Some symptoms of this level include:

◦ No Power ◦ Not Detected by the Computer ◦ Doesn't spin
◦ Clicking ◦ Not Initializing ◦ Buzzing

Truedata Recovery Solutions can recover data from hard drives in ALL types of format, including Windows, Mac, and Linux. We also recover data in almost every storage interface: SATA, IDE, SCSI, Tape Drives, Ethernet, and USB. This includes external hard devices, internal hard drives, Flash Drives, Solid State Drives and most smart phones and MP3 players.

HARD DRIVE RECOVERY RATES

***We offer monthly payment plan depending on how quickly you need the data back***

How long it will take?

The time needed to recover your data will depend on what the problem is and how the device responds to any temporary repairs (e.g head replacement, firmware adjustments or PCB modifications).

If your hard drive does NOT need a head replacement/clean room work,  the average time is 5-10 days or less for our Standard service (non-urgent cases). But if the heads are damaged, there is any damage on the disk platter/s, or after the drive is repaired it is working very slowly (during the disk imaging stage), it will take a lot more time. If you have a deadline you are working with, or need your data back by a set date, we recommend selecting the Priority or Emergency Service instead.

We will keep you informed of the time required and remaining. You can always upgrade from Standard to Priority  as needed. It is important to know that some data recovery jobs we work on can be done very quickly, while others can sometimes take weeks or months due to severe damage or rare spare parts needing to be ordered in.

How fast is the Priority Service?


In some straightforward cases, it may mean you get your data back in 2-3 days. In other cases, it may mean you get your data back in 1 week instead of much longer. If you pay for the Priority service, your data recovery request will be given the number 1 Priority, and we will work 24-hours a day, 7-days a week  to get your data back to you as fast as possible.

A CONFIRMED FIXED PRICE QUOTE WILL BE AVAILABLE AFTER THE DIAGNOSTIC.

FLASH STORAGE RECOVERY : USB Stick, SD, CF cards, etc. : 3 levels

Level 1 : "Logical Recovery for all flash storage", such as MBR corruption, deletion, formatted, corrupted by virus. 

Level 2 : "Chip-off Recovery TSOP-48 chips", this procedure will require direct data extraction from the NAND flash memory.

Level 3 : "Monolithic Recovery", this procedure will require direct data extraction from the NAND chip and custom made solution.

FLASH RECOVERY RATES

***We offer monthly payment plan depending on how quickly you need the data back***

              TSOP-48 chips                              Monolithic chips 

The time required to recover data from a memory card can vary from 1 day up to many weeks for cases requiring a custom made solution. Once we test your memory card, we will let you know how much time it will take to recover your data and the cost to seek your approval before we start work.

 SMART PHONE RECOVERY : iOS (iPhone), Android phones, Windows phones, BlackBerry phones & all mobile devices.

 

COMMON SCENARIOS WE HAVE RECOVERED FROM  (Damaged Android phones are best recovered using Chip-off procedure)

  • Water or liquid damaged (dropped your phone in water, spilled a coffee or soda on it) advise: remove battery, do not dry or power
  • Physically damaged phones (cracked screen, cracked casing & pcb, burnt circuit board) advise: remove battery, do not power

If the phone is water or liquid damaged, do not attempt to dry and plug the device. There is a chance that you may be losing some of your data and not even know it. Place the mobile device inside plastic bag (Ziploc) and contact us to ensure that your data are not lost.

SMART PHONE RECOVERY RATES

***We offer monthly payment plan depending on how quickly you need the data back***

What can't be recovered?

  • Deleted Photos/Videos from any new model Apple iPhone or iPad.
  • A factory reset/restored new model iPhone.
  • A disabled iPhone or iPad – for most modern iPhone/iPads
  • Factory reset or deleted data from new model mobile phones due to data encryption or secure data erasing technology.

How long it will take?

This will depend on what the problem is and how the device responds to any temporary repairs or chip-off procedure if required. 

On average our Standard service jobs take 3-5 weeks, Priority takes 1-2 week and Emergency can be done in as little as 3-4 days. There are many variables, but this typical estimate.

 SSD DATA RECOVERYSSD SATA, SSD PCI-E, SSD SAS, SSD M.2/U.2)

 Common reasons for SSD failures and data loss:

  • abrupt power loss
  • magnetic fields
  • electric charges

Solid State Storage devices are manufactured with one of three types of NAND flash memory:

  • Single-level cell (SLC)
  • multi-level cell (MLC)
  • triple-level cell (TLC)

MLC and TLC memory has more density, and therefore is less expensive, but is more prone to errors and also has fewer/erase cycles.

The durability of a SSD is measured in its write/erase cycles, or the number of times a block can be erased and re-written to before the block fails. A technique called wear leveling dynamically maps logical blocks to physical blocks, to prevent premature failure of any block from too many write/erase cycles. This, along with multi-channel flash microcontroller technology, adds to the durability of a solid state drive. But block failure is also one of the key reason for solid state drive data loss.

When a block can no longer retain data, or when data errors cannot be correct by the solid state drive's error correction algorithm, the drive's controller merely " select" another block. But when all spare block are used, your solid state drive will fail and you'll need SSD recovery services to recover your data.

 How long it will take?

 It depends on what the problem is and how the device responds to any temporary repairs made (e.g firmware adjustments or PCB modifications). On average, the Economy service may take 2-3 weeks or longer. It has no guaranteed time frame, some jobs may take longer as Priority/Emergency jobs are done first.

We will keep you informed of the time required and remaining. You can always upgrade from Economy to Priority or Emergency as needed. It is important to know that some data recovery jobs we work on can be done very quickly, others can sometimes take weeks or months due to severe damage or rare spare parts needing to be ordered in. We will keep you updated at all times.

RAID DRIVES RECOVERY :  0, 1, 4, 5, 5e, 6, 10, 5+1, JBOD, X-RAID, etc.

RAIDs are devices that use multiple hard drives to act as one storage device, and have a multitude of possible configurations that can make recovery a very time-consuming process. Generally these require a custom quote, but as a rule of thumb, each drive will require a Level 1 to 3 recovery independently, plus a RAID diagnostic reconstruction fee will apply depending on the RAID configuration and number of drives. Because of the considerable amount of time that must be invested, the diagnostic reconstruction fee is non-refundable. However, the fee is waived if the recovery is successful.

Most common RAID failures are the member drive failure, typically the most common RAID recovery is the RAID 5 configuration. Most of the time one of the drives will fail and the redundancy from the other drive will take over, but due to most firmware configurations and in the process of a system reboot or a power interruptions, these arrays will likely fail to load. Most of RAID owner will try to troubleshoot the situation and call the manufacturer technical support and until all the troubleshooting methods are applied, at the end technical support will end up recommending a data recovery service. If you notice that your RAID system is having a minor glitch and your data are important, make a copy of your data immediately, and if you are having problem copying your data to other media, contact us for free phone consultation.
