Has your hard drive or RAID server crashed?
Only Chronodisk recovers all your data

Also on SSD, USB stick and removable memory device.


Here are the first things to know

about data recovery:


1. Precautions to take
to not make the problem worse

Never expose a hard drive to the open air! Never use data recovery software if the hard drive is showing signs of fatigue (abnormally slow), has a SMART error or is making abnormal sounds. If you don't follow these precautions, you run the risk at worst of destroying your data, or at best increasing the severity of the problem.


2. Identify the symptoms of my problem
of my hard drive problem

In order to make the right choice regarding recovering your data, you must be able to know what kind of d'un disque dur brisé> problem you are dealing with (logical, electronic, mechanical). You will save time, avoid any nasty surprises and maximise our chances of success by being fully in the know.


3. How much will it cost?
Recovery my datas

The cost for data recovery services always depends on the seriousness of the problem, not on the quantity of the data to be recovered. If you are a corporate client, for a slightly higher cost, your data will be recovered faster. This option is available on your hard drive sending form..


4. Why use a cleanroom?
Before recovering my data...

Our data recovery laboratory is the only one in Québec to be ISO 3, ISO 5 and ISO 9001 certified. Other cleanrooms only have ISO 5 class 100 certification. If mechanical parts need to be replaced inside your hard drive, the cleanroom is a necessary step. Working on my drive in the cleanroom is a necessary step.

Is it squeaking, hissing, clicking?
Hard drives and their various problems


Before finding out how much it could cost you to recover your data, you first need to identify the symptoms of the hard drive (is it recognised? Is it making an abnormal noise? Is it spinning? Has it received an impact?) Here are the three main types of problem which determine the cost of your data recovery:


Hard drive symptoms: :

The hard drive spins without making an abnormal noise, the partition is either corrupt, inaccessible or has disappeared. Your files have been deleted or the hard drive formatted by mistake. The hard drive is still not recognised in the the Disk Manager (Windows, Mac ou Linux).

Here is a tip for your data:

Using a good data recovery software program is sufficient but there are dozens and dozens of them. If you are not fully satisfied with the result, Chronodisk will succeed where you failed by finding the right software/formatting/problem-type combination. If you have a SMART error, you must not continue to spin the hard drive as you risk permanently blocking it.



Hard drive symptoms :

The hard drive spins correctly, may not be recognised with the correct values by the system, and is making abnormal noises or even excessive vibration. The reading of the hard drive may be slowed drastically with voltage drops. Often blocked in SMART error, the hard drive cannot spin at all due to a damaged printed circuit board (PCB) .

Here is a tip for your data :

To avoid major work in the cleanroom (involving replacement of parts inside the hard drive), Chronodisk will seek to circumvent the problem, slowing down the hard drive and then isolating the areas where there are too many faulty sectors. The operation can sometimes be longer but less expensive.



Hard drive symptoms:

LThe hard drive is usually not recognised (neither in the Disk Manager nor in the computer BIOS ,), it spins abnormally, speeds up, stops or clicks loudly. If the hard drive is dropped whilst performing read/write functions, a worrying rubbing noise can become one of the symptoms. This would be the most critical failure.

Here is a tip for your data :

A hard drive can only be opened in a decontaminated environment, i.e. a cleanroom! Once they've found a perfectly compatible donated hard drive, our engineers remove the electronic and mechanical components and transplant them into your faulty drive. The Firmware often needs to be reprogrammed before your data can be recovered.

In 2009, I burnt out my hard drive, so I went to Chronodisk.
They recovered all my data for me and put them on a external hard drive (Samsung).
I thought I'd lost everything.
