The most trusted hard drive data recovery and RAID recovery firm servicing Manhattan, By Don Anderson

Manhattan file recovery

Tri-State Data Recovery & Forensics, LLC

is located only a few short hours from Manhattan. A lot of our business comes from Manhattan, and the city of New York. You are free to bring your damaged hard drive to our lab by scheduling an appointment, or ship it us with the satisfaction of knowing it isn't traveling very far.

Our clients are welcome to see our class 10 clean room and learn how the recovery process works. It's important to understand that all data recovery is not the same. Most clicking hard drives require pcb soldering or clean room work. When calling a data recovery service ask to see their clean room. Most likely they are outsourced, meaning they will charge you a premium and send your hard drive to a third party. Who knows exactly who is looking at your data?

Your best option is to store the drive safely, until you are ready to have a professional recover the data. A small percentage of drives that have surface damage "platter damage" on the service area are deemed unrecoverable by ANYONE. The typical time frame of a level 1 or 2 recovery is within 48 hours. The typical time frame of a level 3 recovery is 1-3 weeks. These are accurate, reliable, and honest answers to your questions.

Manhattan Data Recovery

What is Data Recovery and who is qualified to perform it? While many companies in Manhattan claim to be qualified, not many have had proper training. Your drive will only be worked on by a qualified "Data Recovery Expert" certified engineer. Visit our Blog for detailed information on the recovery process and my FaceBook page for pictures of drives we have worked on in our class 10 clean room.

Forensics

Common Hard Drive problems

Clicking Hard Drive data recovery

If you hear your drive clicking, clunking, beeping, buzzing, grinding, or making any abnormal sounds do not attempt to run any software on it or continue to power it on. Shut the drive off immediately and call a professional. Visit my sounds page to listen to some sounds that damaged hard drives make.

In most cases this is a good sign that you will need a level 3 recovery to replaced damaged heads. It can also be a seized motor, stiction, dirty heads, or even other problems.

Dropped Hard Drive data recovery

A huge portion of drives that come in for recovery are from physical abuse. When a laptop or external hard drive is dropped this usually causes some kind of physical damage. Most cases of dropped drives turn out to need head replacements, which is also a level 3 recovery.

Virus corruption or accidental format data recovery

When a virus has corrupted your operating system causing the system to no longer boot up this is considered a level 1 or logical data recovery. There is nothing physically wrong with the drive and a clean room repair is not needed in cases like this.

I/O Cyclic redundancy check data errors data recovery

Disk read errors data recovery

Windows blue screen errors data recovery

If you are having I/O device errors, disk read errors, or your computer is blue screening there is a good possibility that your hard drive has developed numerous bad sectors. In cases like these the likelyhood of recovery is normally very good if the drive is not continuously tampered with causing more problems. Special hardware is needed to read bad sectors. Using software on drives like this will cause more damage. The only time software should ever be used is if the drive has no physical problems and the data loss is stricly a logical problem.

Manhattan RAID data Recovery

If you suddenly experienced RAID failure it's very important to stop at once, label the drives in the correct order of the ARRAY and contact a professional. Normally one or more drives have failed bringing the entire RAID down. These can be very complicated to recover from depending on how many drives are in the ARRAY and what type of damage has been done. After the repair has been completed the entire ARRAY must be rebuilt before the data can be recovered.

Manhattan Facts:


Manhattan is a major commercial, financial, and cultural center of the United States.[4][5][6] Anchored by Wall Street in Lower Manhattan, New York City functions as the financial capital of the world, with an estimated GDP of over $1.2 trillion.[7] and is home of both the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Many major radio, television, and telecommunications companies in the United States are based here, as well as many news, magazine, book, and other media publishers.


wall street The Bull. Just north of Bowling Green Park you'll see a massive bronze statue of a bull. The bronze bull that stands in Bowling Green poised to charge up Broadway first appeared in front of the New York Stock Exchange December 15, 1989. It was created by Italian-born Soho artist Arturo DeModica who deposited the 7,000-pound bull in front of the New York Stock Exchange in the middle of the night without permission. The next morning Financial District workers were confronted by a sleek, 16-foot-long bronze bull, head down, nostrils flaring. In a flyer distributed that day, the artist stated that the stock market crash of 1987 was his inspiration. He created the bull as a symbol of "strength, power and hope of the American people for the future.

When the Dutch still controlled the region, Wall Street was the city limit and there was actually a wall there.
