Do you offer Data Recovery for Laptop, Notebook, or External Mobile Disk?

Yes. The development of high-capacity laptop hard disks has enabled us to establish advanced techniques in data recovery technology. As these drives are very small in comparison to desktop drives, the internal mechanics are miniature versions of their desktop counterparts, and so special tooling, equipment and handling procedures are required to facilitate the recovery of the data from these drives.

Typical problems that we have seen with laptop computers are due to mechanical or electronic failure, where either the drive does not spin at all, or if it does, then quiet but persistent 'ticking' or 'crunching' noises can be heard during powering up - this particular problem is mainly due to an internal head amplifier failure or, more seriously, a head crash or misalignment problem - the majority of which are recoverable.

Data recovery for laptop user is priced even less compare with recovery price for regular desktop computer. And despite the miniature mechanics, we have an exceptionally high recovery rate for those 2.5", 1.8", and even 1" (Microdrive) disks. We recover data for all of those crashed Acer, Apple, Dell, IBM, Toshiba, Hewlett Packard, Sony, Fujitsu, Hitachi and all others types of mobile computers and external disks.

If your laptop / notebook hard disk has crashed, please contact us for our specialized laptop data recovery service.


From Flight Centre Canada: Seagate Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1.5Tb external - I have a FreeAgent external box and it dropped from a small height.
After the accident the computer didn't detect it anymore and it makes a noise like ticktock with quiet buzzing.
The hard drive was removed from the external enclose and tested separately in computer repair shop.
The technician told me that the abnormal clicking sound from the hard drive is not a good sign. It's possible the spindle or reading heads may be damaged.

I thought I was going to lose my data. Thank God I was wrong.

From Gilbert T. Tampa, FL USA: IBM laptop - Cause of failure was some water spilled on the laptop while running. The liquid shorted the HDD circuitry and the motor. Drive dos not power-on or spin.

Thanks for your hard work and especially the option of the disc re-image. That could prove to be the life saver.
