Data can be lost due to a number of circumstances. The largest contributing factors to data loss are hardware or system malfunctions and human error in total accounting for almost 75% of all incidents. Software corruption, computer viruses and natural disasters such as fire and water damage complete the list. Whether your data loss is the result of mechanical or electrical failure, virus activity, system malfunctions, accidental erasure or re-format, water, fire or smoke damage,
or file corruption, we have the uniquely talented people and the resources in-house to solve your problem.
The Data Recovery Process
Data recovery is a system of processes used to recover lost data from a variety of media sources including hard disk drives, floppy diskettes or tape backups. Performed by Shift Solutions’ experts, it can be your solution when all other methods, including commercial software, fail.
When you send your media in for data recovery, our engineers perform a comprehensive diagnostic to determine exactly what has gone wrong. We devise the most cost-effective and timely procedures to get the data back working for you again.
Can all data be retrieved?
There are occasions when damage to the data is permanent. However, it is a rare case when absolutely no data is retrievable. In almost all situations Shift Solutions succeeds in recovering most of the data even under extreme conditions. Our engineers boast the highest data recovery success rate in the industry.
We work with every media,every operating system, every situation
Each project is analysed individually and only then will an action plan be developed. Shift Solutions employs state-of-the-art replication technology to duplicate your data bit by bit, eliminating the risk of causing further damage to the data.
Shift Solutions strives to return data with the same file names, in the same data type, with the same characteristics and identifiers and in the same structure and location as before the failure.
Shift Solutions’s extensive experience means that we have worked with all media types and operating systems. PC hard drives are a large part of our business, but we also rescue data from hard drives utilized for Raid arrays or servers and all removable media such as floppy disks, optical cartridges and tapes. Even if you have lost data from a laptop, we have the tools to retrieve it. Our proprietary recovery technologies are independent of operating systems. From DOS to Novell to Macintosh to UNIX, we have the technologies and the expertise to retrieve your data….on time and on budget.
