Worldwide hard drive data recovery and server RAID recovery partner incentives programs, By Don Anderson

data recovery partner program

Did you know that we are one of the only
  • HIPAA compliant data recovery
  • services out there legally able to accept drives in the medical field?

    Your business could be generating so much more revenue having access to advanced data recovery procedures like a certified class 10 clean room for head replacments, or spindle work, PC3000, Deepspar, and Salvation data tools.

    Our data recovery partnership program has been improved. Please follow the link for the
  • Partner Program Application
  • for a partner package to be shipped to you. You can also contact us directly so we can customize the program based on your needs.


    Your best option upon receipt of the damaged drive and verification of bad sectors or physical damage is to contact me immediately to avoid permanent damage and data loss. Hard drives can become unrecoverable from severe surface damage and excessive use after becoming damaged. Please click on my
  • Drive Fitness Test
  • link to download software to verify the status of the hard drive before attempting any type of recovery.



    *If the drive fails the test then professional data recovery is needed. Running recovery software will damage it further creating more bad sectors.

    “I have been in IT for 25 years, and have yet to encounter an issue I could not resolve on my own. That is, until this week. Physical damage to a laptop hard drive made it unreadable in any system...”

    postheadericon Common Hard Drive problems

    Clicking Hard Drive data recovery

    Also known as "the click of death". 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.

    Beeping or buzzing hard drive data recovery

    Beeping or buzzing is usually caused from heat or physical abuse like a drop. This is most common in Seagate and Western Digital notebook and portable drives, but can happen to any make and model.
    In most cases beeping or buzzing is a good sign that you will need a level 3 recovery to replaced damaged heads from stiction or even a platter swap from a seized spindle.

    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.

    Secure Erase download below free hdd erase software
    User data is left on disk drives removed from computers and storage systems, creating a data security vulnerability that many users are unaware of. Recent Federal and state laws requiring secure erasure of user data expose companies to fines of $250,000 and responsible parties to imprisonment for 10 years. Complete eradication of user data off drives can be accomplished by running data Secure Erasure utilities such as the freeware "HDDerase" downloadable above.

    It executes the Federally-approved (NIST 800-88) Secure Erase command in the ATA ANSI standard, which is implemented in all recent ATA drives greater than 15-20 GB.
