Data Recovery is the ability to retrieve data from your hard drive if the system fails to boot and cannot be repaired without reinstalling the Operating System or when the hard drive has failed or is showing signs that failure is imminent.
When this happens, the drive can be removed from your system and data can be pulled from it remotely.
If a drive is totally spent and won’t even spin up, data recovery is not possible without actually pulling the discs inside the drive and essentially making a new drive using your discs. This is something that can be done if sent away and the cost is usually very high. Some as high as $800.00 to $1,000.00 and they offer NO guarantee!
This is why backing up your entire system, to include your Operating System, is of utmost importance and saying you will do it as soon as you can is usually something that results in data being lost because it’s never done.
DO NOT let this happen to you!
