The Right Data Recovery Service - How Do I Find It?

Data recovery is not something to be taken lightly. It doesn't matter whether you're a business professional, student or homemaker, the things you have saved are important to you, and that's what matters. With that in mind, there are some important aspects on how to choose the right data recovery service.

First, you want to choose a company with a good reputation. Questions for this might include:

  • Are they a member of the Better Business Bureau?
  • Are they a chamber member?
  • What do others say about the company you're considering?
  • Are there reviews about the company, and if so, what do they say?

Next, you'll want to consider their qualifications. You wouldn't want a dentist doing brain surgery, right? So, think about this:

  • How long have they been in the business and is this their specialty?
  • What, if any, certifications do they possess?
  • Do they have a Clean Room to work in?
  • Are they highly recommended? Are they recommended at all?
  • What types of media are they able to recover and does that fit your need? You may have a hard drive, RAID NAS system, solid state or tape drive.
  • What types of systems do they have experience with? Someone who specializes in Windows won't be able to do as good a job on, say, a Linux base.

You'll also want to ask some more specific questions, because they certainly matter. For instance, you'll want to know if they do the recovery in-house or if they send it to a shop elsewhere. In-house recovery is always the better option. At Carolina Data Recovery, you have the option of bringing your media in, talking with a technician in person and really knowing the person who will be taking care of your project.

And finally, what happens if your data cannot be recovered? Carolina Data Recovery has a "No Data - No Pay" policy. You can contact us.

Client Reviews

“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. .”

“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.
“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.”
