Clean room tech examining hard drive

When you need data recovery performed on an important hard drive,it’s imperative to know that the facility where the data recovery work is done is secure, clean and state-of-the-art.

Carolina Data Recovery’s facilities have the utmost security, experienced technicians, protection from a wide range of disasters, and the most updated data recovery equipment.

Our data recovery experience and expertise

Our excellence begins with our technicians, who have more than 60 years of combined experience recovering data from a wide variety of hard drives. Even with all that experience, our techs undergo annual training and certification so we can be sure they’re well-versed in the latest industry standards for data recovery from storage media.

We work with all operating platforms, including Apple/Mac, Windows, DOS, Unix, Linux, Novell, VMware and more.

Our Charlotte, NC data recovery lab is home to more than 5,000 hard drives that we use to assist us in data recovery cases. We also work with an international network of storage providers, so our engineers have access to hard drive components anywhere in the world and can have them delivered the next day -- so your data recovery keeps going smoothly and on time.

Data recovery timeframe

Most data recovery projects take about 48-72 hours, because we do all work on-site and never send your media to a third party. More difficult or time consuming data recoveries will take longer, but we can also offer emergency data recovery service so your drive(s) and data will be ready for pickup within 4-36 hours.

Physical security of our data recovery lab

Access to our data recovery facilities is tightly controlled, and all of our employees are thoroughly screened before we let them join our team.

During non-working hours, our customers’ media is stored in a high security safe that resists not only all forms of intruder attacks, but also fire, flood and earthquake.

Once you bring your media to us for data recovery, we use chain of custody protocols to track the progress of drives and data until our work is complete. And our premises are monitored 24/7 as well as alarmed.

State of the art equipment

When we have your media out to perform data recovery, it’s also under very safe physical conditions. We use CaptairFlow laminar flow hoods that create ISO 5 air quality within each enclosure.

What does that mean for our customers? Meeting high industry standards is what allows our data recovery technicians to open damaged hard drives according to the manufacturer’s specified environment. And that’s why Carolina Data Recovery is authorized by all the leading hard drive manufacturers to open sealed drive mechanisms without voiding the original warranty.

Client Reviews

“These guys/gals are really great. Ron was very professional and stayed in communication thru the entire process of our clients Data Recovery.”
– David P.
“I thought I had lost the last 15 years of my life in pictures, but they were able to recover them! Such a relief! Worth every penny!”
– Shannon M.
“The short: Calling Ron and his team was the best decision I could have made. Words like kind, respectful, prompt, and attentive come to mind. The long: My NAS crashed. I thought I lost my entire digital life. Forget about the files and documents one accumulates and all the music, I had 30 years of family pictures, some of who are no longer with us. I was in tears. I took my NAS to a big box store where I was given very robotic service by their "geeks" and was told it could cost me thousands of dollars, it would take at least a month (but I could leap to the front of the line for an extra $100) to even find out IF it was recoverable. I decided to look for someone local and thank God I found Carolina Data Recovery. Ron was able to confirm that the data was recoverable within 48 hours and had my data back to me within 72 hours. Beyond that, Ron took time to walk me though the process and listen to my concerns. Realizing I was a mess, Ron spent an hour on the phone with me explaining what I need to do going forward to ensure that this never happens again. Backing up your data IS important - hard lesson learned. I hope to never be in this situation again, but have comfort in knowing that Carolina Data Recovery has my back. ”
– M. Patel
“I researched a few places near me that are in the business of data recovery. When I called, I spoke with Mr. *** D****. He was optimistic that he could recover the data from our dead hard drive from our file server. He did not guarantee anything without an evaluation. I drove two hours and delivered the hard drive to him the next day personally. He checked the drive immediately while I waited. He was confident that his team could recover the data from the drive within 3 to 5 days. Surprisingly, Mr. D**** called me the next morning with the good news that his team had come in for an emergency job and completed the recovery on my hard drive during the night. They were able to recover 100% of the data. Mr. D**** was pleasant to work with. I hope I never need there services again, but If I do I would definitely work with them again. I would highly recommend.”
– Bobby M.
“Carolina Data Recovery is terrific. We lost a RAID 5 array with critical data and we needed to recover it quickly. We spoke with 3 different venders, and Ron made a big impression over the phone. We did not regret our choice. He worked with us on shipping and priority, and within three days of placing that call we had our data back in 3 days.. HIGHLY recommended. .”
– Jim B.
“Great service! Great company! After bringing my computer to three other companies - all who said my data was lost and gone forever - Carolina Data Recovery found and restored it as easy as 1 - 2 - 3. After all the ups and downs and horrors of computer problems, I'm so glad I found a place to go!”
– Anne Fiala
“Carolina Data Recovery saved the day! I had an external hard drive that contained all of my personal information and pictures over the last 3 years. This hard drive had crashed leaving me in a world of panic. Carolina Data Recovery specialists were able to fully recover my lost information, keeping me updated throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Carolina Data Recovery for all your data needs! ”
– J. Hawk
