Apple’s file systems are different to those used by PCs (FAT & NTFS etc.), which means that standard data recovery methods will not work for Apple Macs.
Because of this, I have developed my own Mac data recovery technique, and in most instances I am able recover your data.
The 3 Phases of Data Recovery
Using state of the art hardware-based and software-based data recovery tools my data recovery process involves 3 distinct phases:
- I will check in your drive (or Mac) and perform a detailed evaluation of its condition
- You will be contacted with the results of the drive evaluation and quote
- The data recovery process will commence and you will be informed with updates as the recovery progresses after your confirmation
Generally the faults I see with the drive are not always the fault of the user but merely something that can just happen.
Sometimes a partition can become corrupt and unreadable or develop bad sectors.
Another common cause for data recovery is when data is accidentally deleted or a hard disk drive is reformatted by mistake.
This gives the impression that the data is lost, however it can be recovered if handled correctly.
If you hear any sounds coming from your Mac or hard drive, please stop using it immediately, as it could make the recovery worse if not impossible.
Get in touch and lets make an appointment to bring the unit in for a quick diagnosis.
