5 Tips For Picking A Data Recovery Service

The most dreaded event of any business or individual is data loss. What happens when your digital life or livelihood becomes inaccessible? You have to turn to a data recovery specialist. Here are 5 quick tips about picking a data recovery service:

1. Experience: You want expertise when it comes to recovering what is most valuable, your business and personal information. Determine how many years of experience a data recovery service has. The more the better when comes to meeting every possible challenge successfully. Examine credentials and certifications, such as manufacturer authorization and HIPAA compliance.

2. Reputation: In addition to looking at how much experience a service provider has, check out their reputation. What do customer reviews have to say? Are they committed to excellence? Are they reliable and responsive? 

3. Capability: The digital world is vast and expansive. The best data recovery service can manage multiple platforms and all makes and models of devices and computers. Broad capability matters when many people and companies use a variety of digital storage devices. 

4. Security: Your personal and business data is valuable. Allowing access to it creates a vulnerability. Only choose a data recovery service that operates in secure facilities and practices strict protocols of confidentiality. But security means more than just protecting information. It also means protecting the integrity of your equipment. Facilities should perform their services in a ISO Certified Cleanroom to ensure the integrity of your sensitive electronics.

5. Speed: When it comes to recovering your data and getting back to business, or your regular routine of daily life, you want data recovery to be as quick as possible. Think about it. How long can you go without accessing your stored information? Most people would find a single 24-hour period extremely trying. Look for a data recovery service that strives for rapid turn-around time.

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. .”
– Jim B.
“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.”
