Yes, you can recover a CCTV footage that has been affected by malicious code. Attacks by malicious codes bring logical damage to the hard drive that can be repaired with assistance from professionals.

CCTV/DVR footage recovery cost can be estimated by the different parameters such as type of data loss situation, the storage capacity of DVR hard drive and condition of DVR (physical or logical failure).

There are many reasons that lead to loss of CCTV footage. Here are some of the major reasons that can lead to the loss of CCTV footage – accidental deletion of footage, DVR hard disk damage, failed DVR system, damaged DVR circuit board etc.

Yes, it is possible to recover CCTV footage from a damaged DVR. But the recovery solution depends on what type of damage has been done to the DVR.

CCTV video footages are keys to investigation and evidence. Stored in hard drives, SSDs and other storage media, these crucial videos can get deleted or lost due to human error, water, fire or natural calamities. No worries, No matter what type of CCTV/DVR you are using, Techchef restore deleted/ lost CCTV recordings in almost all data loss scenarios. As we have 95% success rate of CCTV/DVR footage recovery.

Generally, computer data recovery takes 1 to 2 days depending on the complexity of a computer hard disk recovery task.

When data loss strikes, there is an urgent need for PC/ laptop users to regain their lost or deleted data. However, deleted data can be restored from the recycle bin using simple commands like opening the recycle bin, selecting the desired data and choosing the restore option. In this way, you can avoid your computer data loss.

If you are just interested in recovering the files, you can connect a USB stick or external hard drive and copy the files to the removable media device. Then your files will be saved from your computer which is about to die. This method also works if your computer’s hard drive is dying.

Data recovery in computer follows the process of retrieving or salvaging of inaccessible, lost, corrupted, damaged or formatted data from secondary storage, removable media or files when the data stored in them is not able to access in a usual way.

If you live close to one of our office branches, you can bring your storage device to our premises and collect it later after we are done retrieving data from it. Or otherwise, contact our customer care service desk and get a representative to guide you on how to ship the hard drive to us.

Yes, we monitor the magnetic fields via a program. Our degausser is verified before each degaussing process to ensure that it is functioning properly.

Solid State Drives (SSDs) store data electrically, so they cannot be degaussed. However, they can be physically destroyed. For more information on the best practice for destroying information stored on solid-state drives, please visit this blog post.

Shredding drives is an extra step to make sure data is completely destroyed. Since a degaussed drive and a non-degaussed drive look the same, it’s best practice to shred drives after they’re degaussed

Our services are specifically tailored to each client’s needs in terms of quantity, frequency, and desired level of security.

In order to protect “classified” or “top secret” information, degaussing is often the only way to meet federal requirements for sanitization and destruction. Federal agencies have written standards and procedures for how to handle sensitive data, which usually involve using a degausser and then physically destroying the storage unit.

Yes, in some cases it is possible for Techchef Technicians to recover data from password-protected media.

To protect your privacy and security, recovering data from password-protected disks will require you to complete an additional form authorizing Iomega technicians to deactivate the password protection features of your media.

If you need files recovered from password-protected media, please call us toll-free at 1800-313-1737 for more information.

Techchef Data Recovery Services provide the ultimate backup for your backup. Free evaluations and no-risk quotes, comprehensive product coverage, a choice of service levels and data restoration formats, and an industry-leading standard of quality and satisfaction guarantee help ensure business continuity.

Our Data Recovery Specialists can attempt to recover data in many data loss cases. We also support all major media types and manufacturers! Types of Media are:

  • Hard Drive Data Recovery
  • Server Data Recovery
  • Removable Data Recovery
  • Application and Database Recovery

Techchef provides multiple levels of Data Recovery service depending on what type of storage media you need to restore lost data from. The most common types of media are Hard Drive, Server/Raid Arrays, External Hard Drives, and so on.

In the simplest terms, “Data Recovery” simply refers to the process of recovering data from a disk, disk drive, or another type of electronic storage media (such as a drive array, database, flash memory, etc.) when the data is no longer accessible via normal means.

The dead hard drive usually affects almost all computer users. There is no need to worry, unless or until corruption has occurred within the files, files can be saved. It is good if you have a backup of your important data. Or if you do not have a backup in advance and find the components in your drive are still functioning, you can recover data from the dead hard drive with bootable CD/DVD of data recovery software.

The early common signs of the dead hard drive are like strange noises like clicking, by overheating, excessively slow file access times, disk error or data loss, the computer stops recognizing the drive and computer crashes or blue screen errors.

You have to spend XYZ with the cost of time. If you want to perform data recovery yourself then it includes the price of software and possible additional hard drives, but you should also consider the value of the time it will take you to do research and perform the work yourself.

Yes, it can possible to recover data from a dead hard drive. The key factor is to get your computer to recognize the broken device so you can use recovery software to recover files from the dead hard drive.

Yes, it is Techchef’s policy to return a customer’s property, even if non-functional. Even if not readable, there will still be data on the drive, and it is our responsibility not to hold your data for any longer than necessary under data protection legislation.

It is essential to verify that the solution offered by the vendor meets your organization’s specific compliance requirements (for example, Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI, HIPAA, HiTECH, or NIST standards) and provides the requisite audit trails and reports necessary for compliance reporting.

If data isn’t disposed of correctly, it could lead to some pretty hairy consequences like regulatory fines and settlements, a damaged reputation, and even business closure. If you’re not sure whether your data has been destroyed properly, you’re probably not taking the necessary precautions to protect your data. For example, some companies have gotten into hot water for simply giving away old hard drives without realizing that the data on them was still accessible.

There are several reasons why it is essential to choose certified and recognized data destruction solutions. First, cheaper solutions may not offer certifications that adhere to the most prestigious standards. Second, they frequently have a greater likelihood of failure when processing systems. Third, the ideal destruction process should offer the opportunity to select a specified and recognized standard, based on individual needs. Fourth, it should support the destruction of the type and number of devices being erased. Fifth, it should provide verification that the physical/shredding method was successful and removed data across the entirety of the device.

It is important to make data totally unreadable in spite of any form of electronic media. The perfect method would include Physical Destruction-Drive bent in half /crushed, Hard drive shredding – drive crushed into pieces, Electronic shredding, and Solid-state shredding.

There is a risk applied to carrying out your own physical shredding. Opting for your own low-cost and non-secure physical destruction methods include drilling holes in hard drives, actually shooting them with bullets, slamming them with hammers/sledgehammers, dunking them in water, and other ‘homemade’ solutions. It is important to note that each of these options ‘disables’ the drive, but does not entirely remove the data on it. Therefore, many forensics experts believe that these methods can still recover data. You can reach our customer service team for more information.

A PST is an automatically created personal folder file in Microsoft outlook. You should be able to restore it from the recycle bin if you just deleted the PST file. If it is a permanent deletion or you have emptied the recycle bin, you will need to recover it from a backup if you have one.

Outlook block sender feature under the junk email folder blocks spam and prevents it from entering the user’s inbox. Follow these steps to stop phishing emails in outlook: choose and select the spam email by clicking on the right button, choose junk from the drop menu, and click block sender.

Personal storage table (PST) files are so important as if PST gets corrupt then the user cannot access his/her mailbox. Usually, PST files have a limitation of 2GB but if it crosses this limit then either the server will crash or the mailbox tables of outlook may get corrupt and unreadable.

Owing to our vast experience in data recovery services, our team is capable of retrieving the PST file you use with Microsoft outlook from a damaged hard drive or server in a maximum of two days. Typically, it takes us far much less than two days but we take more time to give you the best result.

Outlook recovery can be defined as to recover corrupted PST files efficiently and export into PST file formats.

There are several potential failures that can occur with encrypted systems, any of which could lead to data loss or corruption. Common failures include physical hard drive failure, RAID failure, virus corruption, file corruption due to bad sectors, power surge, encrypted software corruption, and accidental file deletion or formatting.

In most cases, it will take 3 to 5 working days. However, if the data is extremely complicated, it could take longer.

Our company has extensive experience with EFS and other full-disk encryption tools, and our qualified engineers have access to specialized file recovery applications that were developed in-house by our research and development department.

We provide various options for recovering fully encrypted disks, including a top-tier 24/7/365 emergency service. In certain cases, we can also repair files remotely; however, this is not possible for all instances.

While encryption can have an impact on data and file structures, it does not mean recovery is not possible. With years of experience and advanced tools and techniques, our engineers have a high success rate in recovering encrypted files.

While this varies depending on the encryption algorithm, generally speaking, the answer is no – we cannot decrypt your data without access to your passwords or keys. However, it is important to note that encrypted data recovery is not the same as password recovery. Our engineers can sometimes perform password recovery, depending on the circumstances. You can reach our customer service team for more information.

If your External Hard drive does not show in windows at all after you check the connection and update the device driver, there may be any mechanical or electrical corruption on your device. The possibility to recover data from a failed external hard drive varies based on the specific situation of your storage device. You can try to fix your external hard drive and then try to retrieve your data.

Within an hour of receiving your media, our technicians will begin diagnosing your storage device to determine why your data can’t be accessed. This evaluation can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 days depending on the type of problem with your external hard drive.

We keep your data with us for 7 days after it is delivered to you. In case, anything goes wrong with your recovered data post-delivery, you don’t have to go through the whole process again. After 7 days from delivery, we erase your data completely from our server.

By doing this, you can save a small amount of electricity, but may result in more wear and tear on the drive as it heats up and cools down repeatedly. Leaving it connected and always turn on means it is always ready for use. If you continue to turn it off or on, that can interfere with your backup strategy in any way. So, leave it on.

Some physical factors which can lead to External hard drive fail, such as dust, fire, power fluctuation etc. in fact, it is difficult to take care of these things but you must be careful and take proper care of your drive to save it from failure.

Techchef is an ISO 27001 and 9001 certified company that adheres to the company’s data privacy audits and policies to ensure 100% data privacy to you.

You can try the following steps:

  • Shut down your system before restarting
  • Reconnect your device after uninstalling it
  • Go to Start-Device Manager
  • Check the USB drive on the hardware list given
  • Uninstall the external hard disk device
  • Reconnect post this, loading will happen automatically
  • Change the letter name of the drive from the disk management option, i.e. Drive C, D, E, etc.
  • Boot your system via safe mode and see whether the drive is accessible. If this happens, then there are malicious files/programs on the external HDD which is hampering its accessibility.
  • Get the USB controllers reinstalled
  • Go to Start-Device Manager
  • Choose Universal Serial bus controllers and get the device uninstalled
  • Restart your system and these controllers will be installed again automatically

In case these steps do not work and you cannot access the hard drive, you should consult Techchef professionals for the next course of action.

Data loss usually takes place due to hard disk failures. Techchef has noted that more than 70% of data recovery assignments are usually linked to HDD failures. This is commonly observed in case of individual and corporate clients and there could be a plethora of reasons behind the same. This may happen in situations where there is continuous storage of data and frequent usage of computers. There may be other aspects like data density increases or even the number of platters. 60% of failures of the hard disk reportedly take place on account of mechanical issues while 40% of these issues reportedly take place due to human errors or sheer misuse.

It is not that difficult to work out if the hard drive has failed or crashed. Here are some of the symptoms of hard disk failures:

  • Hard disk cannot be recognized or detected by your system
  • System boot failure or the system hangs in the midst of booting
  • The hard drive does not spin
  • The hard drive cannot be detected by System BIOS
  • Noise/clicking sounds from the system
  • Frequent locking up while booting
  • Files vanishing suddenly and multiple times at that
  • Freezing of the computer and no keyboard/mouse inputs in such situations
  • Opening or saving files becomes a slow and tedious affair
  • Higher number of bad sectors while the chkdsk command is run
  • Computer performance cannot be improved even after optimization
  • Jostled/bumped computer while it is running
  • Unusual heating up of the computer
  • Failure of electric motor which enables the platter to spin on account of poor components or bearings
  • Air intake filter becomes clogged up or dysfunctional
  • Sudden power failures while disk is writing
  • Considerable heat which leads to failure of the electronic circuit board

Yes! Techchef professionals can get your hard drive data recovered. Data recovery is possible after you accidentally delete your data from the hard drive. Your deleted data remains in the hard disk only, which can be recovered with specialized tools offered by our professionals.

Bad sectors are inaccessible or un-writeable portions of your hard disk and can happen on account of software malfunctions, physical damages on the surface, wear and tear or even defects in manufacturing. Small bad sectors are manageable but you should get the hard drive replaced in case there are bad sectors in larger numbers since these will eventually spur drive failure and loss of data. You should keep tracking the HDD status with suitable applications. Remember that even if the hard disk drive is working fine, a small bad sector cluster can eventually lead to data corruption and eventual loss. Whenever a bad sector is garnered by the system, the sector is marked and ignored. This will be remapped and files being read and written to this sector will be transferred somewhere else. You should regularly back up your data and consult professionals for recovering information from bad sectors.

Physical failures – This is due to any physical damage such as burning/dropping of the hard drive. Some symptoms include:

  • No detection of the hard drive by the system
  • Drive does not spin
  • Drive heats up excessively
  • Unusual ticking sounds while data is being read by the hard drive
  • Grinding/clicking noise

Physical damage can be ascertained quite easily. You should refrain from attempting to open the HDD all by yourself since this increases the chances of damage. Get the situation rectified by experts.

Logical Failures – This occurs in case of human errors, malware/software infections, corrupted failures and also in case the hard disk does not boot properly. Some symptoms include:

  • Bad platter/media
  • Hard disk recognized by BIOS but data cannot be accessed
  • Corruption of data from other file sources
  • Human errors such as changing of file attributes or registry file modifications

Fixing these failures does not require opening up the HDD and recovery software and tools can be used by Techchef for getting back your inaccessible data. We can help you fix this problem with ease.

Mechanical/Electric Failures – These failures are usually linked to HDD components. Some symptoms include the following:
  • Crash of hard disk head/heads
  • Magnetic platter damages
  • Failure of hard drive motor
  • Damages to PCB
These failures usually mean that higher time and effort is required to recover data and you should immediately contact Techchef experts for the best solution.

It depends upon case to case. First, we do the analysis of server data then we share timing for data recovery. Usually, it takes around 72 hours to 1 week.

Yes! We recover data from Dell PowerEdge Tower Servers.

We hold expertise in retrieving lost audio, document, ppt, files, and videos of all formats through a vast range of storage devices. Our team can successfully restore lost data from both internal and external hard drive, flash drive, SD card, SSD including memory card, SAN, NAS & DAS.

If a laptop drive has any physical issues, no application can treat mechanical drive issues and it is not recommended to use file repair software for this reason. Some programs may also overwrite data when used incorrectly, which can cause permanent file issues. Regardless of your media failure scenario, it is recommended to turn off your computer and contact a professional data recovery provider as soon as you notice signs of file loss.

Data recovery software typically works by accessing a hard drive’s master boot record and other areas of the disk to reconstruct deleted or damaged files.

Your hard drive’s brand can certainly play a role. Hard disk components often replace in order to restore file access, and while all manufacturers use the same design principle, a number of factors can make data recovery easier or more difficult for a certain model. However, secure data recovery services offer an overall success rate of 96% for laptop drives.

No, a different set of tools used to treat laptop data and desktop data. So, there is not a significant correlation between the physical size of a drive and the cost of recovery.

Pricing varies from case to case. Some of the factors that affect pricing include the condition of your laptop and the source of media damage. Techchef offers risk-free diagnostics for all laptops. Our engineers can provide you with a price quote and turnaround estimate in a matter of days, and we offer several different service levels to help you keep costs within your budget.

There are many causes for hard drive failure which includes human error, hardware failure, firmware corruption, heat, water damage, power issues etc.

This process is done in a certified class Clean room. This environment removes contaminants, which allows for safe component repairs. Depending on your failure scenario, it needs to repair multiple parts to restore the drive to a working condition. We further work on logical problems such as file corruption after performing physical repairs. Further, cloning of your laptop drive is done before logical procedures in order to prevent accidental damage. In the end, return your data on the return media of your choice.

There are various signs of laptop HDD loss such as frequent freezing and crashing, unusual sounds like clicking in the laptop hardware, electronic failure, Virus or malware attacks, the operating system will not Boot, failure to mount or recognize attached media and firmware failure.

Generally, you can rely on your laptop hard drive for 3 to 4 years on an average.

It depends on recovery mode you are using and the capacity of your Mac hard disk. In fact, all Mac data recovery apps provide quick scan mode and deep scan mode. A quick scan will retrieve all deleted data in a few minutes, while a deep scan will take hours or more. In addition, the larger the hard disk capacity, the longer the scanning time. Please be patient that the scanning process is too slow. After the scan is over, all your data will be retrieved.

The software is valid for 1 year from the date of purchase.

Insert the bootable disk to your dead Mac book. Start the Mac book and change boot settings to make it boot from this bootable USB/CD. Boot into the hard drive on dead Mac book under the guidance and enter the main interface of Mac data recovery. Connect the external disk that will be used to store the recovered data.

If you accidentally deleted important files on Mac, you can easily restore them by the “undo” option. But, it is invalid after you emptying the trash or permanently deleting files.

Apart from guaranteeing that you will get your data back if you bring your inaccessible Macbook to us, we also pay attention to your urgent needs and strive to ensure that Macbook data recovery tasks will be complete as soon as possible after you deliver your laptop to us. Generally, we use to take one to two days to complete a Macbook data recovery task.

It is strongly recommended to take a conservative course of action following a NAS appliance failure. Data recovery software could contribute to media damage and file corruption and many appliances are designed for personal computer, not NAS system. To keep your appliance from sustaining permanent damage, turn it off as soon as you notice any signs of media failure.

In order to treat NAS appliances with damaged media, data recovery engineers need to work in an appropriately controlled environment. Engineers should have experience with file-level data storage devices and depend on your NAS configuration.

If you want to connect your NAS to your PC over USB, then you cannot do this. NAS stands for network-attached storage and uses to connect to a network. If once added as a network drive then the new drive will appear in your drive list on your PC or Mac.

Our data recovery service for Network Attached Storage & Storage Area Network is efficient, risk-free, safe & secure. Costs can vary greatly from case to case. We need to perform a media evaluation to provide an accurate price quote and turnaround estimate. We use to provide free diagnostics with our standard service option. Our engineers consider a number of factors when creating your price quote including the number of hard drives in your NAS, its file system and the presence of any mechanical media damage.

This depends on the fault tolerance of the system. Many network-attached storage appliances use RAID, which provides redundancy. Mostly Drives fail during rebuild procedures or some major electrical events. A common source of logical damage includes file corruption, accidental deletion, virus attacks and accidental overwrites. Regardless of failure, the chances of a successful recovery are fairly high.

You can make payment Online through Wallet (except for Google Pay), UPI, Debit, Credit, NEFT or IMPS. Payment should be done in advance.

Stop working on affected hardware and switch the device to read-only mode if possible. Do not attempt to restore data from a backup to the same device as this may lead to unrecoverable data loss.

We helped thousands of verifiable corporate customers and individuals as well. We are an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Certified company, which demonstrates our commitment to the confidentiality and security of your data.

Deleted files always prove to be a nightmare. If you got some items deleted at the time of transfer or exchange of data then it is feasible to recover the deleted files using pen drive data recovery software. This is done by scanning and recovers the deleted files or folders.

The reasons behind the data loss can come down to 3 main categories:
File deletion: By Accidently delete a file in the pen drive.

  •  Drive corruption: pen drive device gets virus-infected or corrupted
  •  Human errors: By removing the pen drive from a connected device
  •  Improperly or a sudden PC shutdown when using the Drive.

Techchef can recover many types of files, photos/images, project documents, emails, audio, videos and archives etc. We will get your files back to you in their original quality.

To meet the urgency of a particular case, we have extra computer systems, special utilities to recover priority data folders or file and more important is flexible working hours. Non-detecting Pen drive data recovered in just an hour after opening the hardware.

Firstly, do not panic. If you continue to feel worried then it will cause a bigger problem for you. Simply use data recovery software to recover the lost data or send it to a professional data recovery provider.

Yes, it is possible to recover accidental deletions from memory cards. But if you continue to use the memory card after photos have been deleted then the pictures deleted will be overwritten and irretrievable. The best chance of recovery is to send the card to the photo recovery service provider as soon as possible.

Because we are expert in photo recovery service from all kind of data loss situation. We have a 96% success rate on previous photo data recovery services. We have no data recovery, no charge policy. We offer a free evaluation with no obligation quote. We provide 24/7 emergency service. Last but not least that we ensure your data security and privacy.

Usually, it takes 4 hours to 24 hours for a complete evaluation to know the condition of the device and recovery possibilities after which it can confirm recovery possibilities and time required.

The Photo recovery service charges can be come to know after proper analysis of storage device on which data was stored. It needs to have your device to evaluate the condition and then only confirm the photo recovery cost. The data recovery depends upon the following key parameters: device condition- working or not, what kind of damage your media has suffered and device data storage capacity.
There are no hidden charges and no commitment unless you agree to the quotes and choose to move forward.

Photo data loss may be done by many scenarios such as digital camera has been broken or damaged, photographs are corrupted, memory or SD card presents errors, photos were accidentally deleted, reformation of memory card which contains photos or disaster has occurred to the storage media.

As RAID 0 arrays are necessary, if one of the member disks fails, your data that was on the failed disk is lost forever. Therefore, if one of the member disks fails beyond repair then it is not possible to recover data from RAID 0.

RAID data recovery is the process of recovering as well as restoring data from a RAID storage infrastructure. It generally uses a combo of automated and manual data recovery processes to extract and restore data from one or more RAID drives and storage components.

The safest way to data recovery with a RAID volume is to capture every storage block on each device individually. The result of drive images is then used to remake the original array structure and recover the important files and folders. One of the dangers in using data recovery software is that it forces the read and write heads to travel repeatedly over areas of the original media which, if physically damaged, could become further damaged and possibly unrecoverable.

RAID data may be failed when one of the member disks failed or failure of more than one of the member’s disk has been done or when RAID error control, operator control error or any other may fail RAID factors outside of the member disks.

No, we ensure that every client is important and every client’s data recovery project, instead of quantity, is a priority. We value your business and your trust, and we will do everything we can to return your data as quickly as possible.

Ransomware is a type of virus that encrypts all the files on your computer and then demands money in order to decrypt them, if you pay, sometimes you get your files back and sometimes you get demands for more money.

It typically spreads via spam or phishing emails or through websites or drive-by downloads to infect an endpoint and penetrate the network. After reach to the attack place, then the ransomware locks all files which it can access using strong encryption. Finally, the malware demands a ransom to decrypt the files and restore full operations to the effect IT systems.

Yes, it is possible to recover encrypted ransomware files by restoring original files from the external backup device. But this can be done only when if you have a regular backup of your device data in an external hard drive, SSD, SD card, pen drive, cloud storage or any other storage device.

Ransomware keeps your personal files hostage, keeping you from your documents, photos and financial information. These files are still on your computer but the malware has encrypted your device and the data which is stored on your computer or mobile device makes inaccessible.

We are a legitimate business that charges a considerable fee, which is significantly lower than what the captors of your data could be asking for in ransom.

As soon as you notice any irregularities or indications of damage, do not try to repair your SAN unit or utilize any software to fix unreadable files. RAID systems should never be rebuilt after a media failure. Rather, keep the system turned off and contact our qualified SAN recovery team to explore your available options.

There are certain things you should consider while looking for a SAN data recovery company in order to find the best one for you. Make sure to check if the company has experience with your type of SAN system and if they offer a free consultation. Furthermore, you should see if the company has a clean and modern facility and if they use the latest SAN data recovery technologies. Lastly, check reviews to see what past customers have said about the company.

Some common causes of Storage Area Network failures are Failure of Single or Multiple Hard Drive in RAID, Failure of Operating Systems or Software, Virus Attack (Malware, Ransomware), Accidental Deletion, Physical damaged by water in case of spills, natural disasters, and humidity, Fire Damaged, Power Surge, Human Error, Malfunctioning of Controllers, Manufacturing problems, and security system failure prevented data from being viewed.

The price of SAN data recovery services varies depending on the amount of data that needs to be recovered, the level of damage, and the type of SAN system. You can contact our customer service team for an evaluation so one of our engineers can analyse your SAN and test it to find any damage on your media. We can then offer you a risk-free price quote, and an accurate estimate for how long it will take to fix your problem.

At Techchef, we understand the importance of a SAN to your business continuity. We are proud to offer a variety of options for high-priority SAN failures, including a 24/7/365 emergency service with an average turnaround time of less than a day. In some cases, we also offer remote data recovery services. Our teams can remotely repair logically damaged SAN devices to minimize your downtime. In addition, our excellent security credentials give you peace of mind.

Yes, it is possible to recover data from an SD card. Even if the card becomes inaccessible or formatted, the stored data is not lost forever. Our data recovery experts can access and retrieve the files from the card.

Most of the damaged SD cards can be recovered if you act quickly. Professional data recovery software or services can usually retrieve lost files, but you need to stop using the SD card immediately to prevent overwriting any data. Continuing to use the SD card could result in overwriting your lost files, which would make them unrecoverable. Contact our qualified SD Card data recovery team to explore your available options.

There are several common causes of SD card corruption, including improper use, malware, bad sectors, manufacturing defects, and physical damage. However, the good news is that most cases of SD card corruption can be fixed with the help of Techchef professional data recovery services.

In most cases, it will take 3 to 5 working days. However, if the data is extremely complicated, it could take longer.

You will be emailed a file listing of all successfully recovered files. If you would like us to check the integrity of specific files, we can do this independently.

Yes, it is possible to recover the formatted SSD. Even damaged SSD data can be recovered.

In order to treat damaged servers, data recovery companies need specialized tools and experienced engineering teams. You should always choose a recognized, certified provider in order to limit your chances of unnecessary downtime. Look for a provider with a certified clean room and adequate security credentials.

Shut down your Server right away. By operating your server in a failed state, you risk media damage, file corruption and unintentional overwrites. Shutting down your server will preserve your media in its original condition, greatly increasing your chances of a fast, full recovery. Do not attempt to rebuild, repair or reinitialize your server.

Turnaround time varies from case to case. However, we can recover many servers in under a day under emergency option.

Our engineers have experience with various SQL database management applications. We also specialize in exchange data recovery and our teams have dozens of proprietary tools designed to treat server data quickly and effectively. Thanks to our advanced technology, we offer an overall success rate of 95%.

SQL Server restore and recovery supports restoring data from a backup of a whole database, a data file or a data page as follows: the whole database is restored and recovered and the database is offline for the duration of restore and recovery operations.

There are three phases of SQL database recovery – the analysis phase, the redo phase and finally the undo phase.

Backing up your SQL Server databases, running test restores procedures on your backups and storing copies of backups in a safe, on-site, off-site and cloud location protects and safeguards the data from potentially catastrophic or various types of data loss.

Do not try to recover the files by yourself because you could end up complicating the problem. For instance, an attempt to recover corrupted SQL database files could allow access for malicious software to infect other applications and files on your system. Please contact a professional database recovery service provider like Techchef.

Yes. Consulting the Techchef data recovery professionals can enable you to access the SSD and recover its data.

Recovery of data from a water damaged drive is possible. But best the thing you can do is to let air dry device for at least 24 to 48 hours before trying to use it. If the drive is accessible, back up data as soon as possible.

SSD basically consists of 4 main components including:
Interface (like SATA, mSATA and Strip others),
Flash or Storage,
Flash Cache in modern SSD,

Due to the absence of moving parts, SSDs are less prone to damage from shocks and impact. But it can still break depending upon the severity of impact.

No, drive manufacturers do not provide any data recovery service. For data recovery services, you need to contact specialized data Recovery companies like Techchef.

Wet tapes often require decontamination. Improper drying cause tapes to deform, break, stick together and may increase chemical decay. Get you wet tapes to a restoration specialist fast.

Recovery technique used on professional tapes can also be used on most consumer formats. However, some techniques do not work as well on miniaturized tapes. If your tapes are easily replaced store-bought copies, it is often less expensive to replace the tapes than to pay for professional restoration.

The most probable cause is the binder hydrolysis. This is a chemical breakdown of the tape, usually due to interaction with moisture in the air over a period of time. The result is a sticky residue on the surface of the tape. The problem occurs because the tape has been stored in an area that is too damp and too warm.
