Had a laptop hard drive crash after Windows pushed an update last week…

5/ 5

Contacted Paul and had the drive in Fed Ex the next day. Luckily they were able to make a 100% mechanical recovery (take out the hard drive platters in a clean room and then spin them up in another device). Shame on me for not having redundant real time backups (I have 2 now). I knew better than to have a back up that was over a month old, so this was my penance. Paul was more than communicative and had great advise for backing up. He should know – he deals with this every day. LEARN FROM HIM!! My review would not change if they couldn’t recover anything. I was impressed with their turnaround and communication which goes miles in a situation like this. Hats off to the RTS team. I hope I never have to talk to Paul again in this context, but thank God people like him are around when you need them.

I accidentally stepped on my husbands flash drive (he’s a college professor) that contained all of his coursework and gradings for all of his classes. We took the flash drive to different places and they all told us that it would cost an arm and a leg to try and recover the data, if it was even able to be recovered at all. I was feeling really awful about possibly losing all of my husbands hard work and him having to recreate everything again, until I discovered RTS. I gave them a call, thinking this would be my final attempt before giving up. I left a message and Paul returned my call and he was very helpful and understood what the issue was and immediately provided a reasonable quote and guarantee that if the data could not be recovered that we would not be charged. We sent over our device and within 48 hours Paul called us back stating that all data was recovered and was on its way back to us! It was a miracle! I would highly recommend RTS for recovering your data and wouldn’t waste anytime searching anywhere else! Their team is fast, efficient, honest and helpful! You will not find this type of service anywhere else. Thanks Paul and team! You guys Rock!

I came home from a trip to Costa Rica and without thinking was playing with my camera before backing up my pictures. Without warning nearly 700 photographs were deleted. I contacted Paul at RTS and miraculously he was able to recover all of them. He was a Godsend as I was sure i had lost everything. The service was great and the price was very fair. I would highly recommend RTS to anyone who has lost valuable data and needs to recover it right away. Thanks again for all of your help Paul.

When I accidentally knocked my computer over, it turned into a nightmare, and I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to recover my files. Long story short, I contacted Paul at RTS Data Recovery and not only was his team able to recover all of my files, but I got them back the very next day!! I could not be more grateful or give a higher recommendation to any company. Plus, Paul kept me informed throughout the process, clearly demonstrating that he understood how important and urgent getting my files recovered (and fast) was to me. Thanks again!

I dropped my Mac and destroyed my hard drive, 2 days later I had a new hard drive installed and miraculously they some how salvaged and recovered all my data. All this after Apple told me they couldn’t help me with the data recovery part. Apple was the one to refer me to RTS Data Recovery, there apart of the Apple Consultants Network.

They were able to recover all the photos and files from my damaged external hard drive. They offer a free diagnostic test and provide you with the a price quote along with likelihood of recovery (e.g. 80-90%). It took about a week for them to complete their work and they sent me a list of recovered files to confirm that I was satisfied with the results. I was very impressed with their customer service and highly recommend them for their data recovery services.

I wasted my time with the Apple “Genius” Bar & Microcenter until a friend recommended RTS. They recovered all my data and successfully backed it up on my external HD at a reasonable price. Others said it couldn’t be done but Paul found a way. I highly recommend their services; honest and timely. I can’t wait until I spill some whiskey on my laptop again!

Check around, the prices don’t get any better that these.

I checked with another company they gave me a range of $900-$3600. I ended up paying less than that with RTS Data Recovery, and I had a very complicated recovery. Paul and his colleagues kept at it until everything was fully recovered, then he apologized for having it take so long! (It was eight days, more than reasonable) I chose them because they were local, but I would hire them regardless of that in the future.

Paul was very helpful and didn’t seem at all to be taking advantage of me, someone who doesn’t know much at all about how all this hard drive stuff works. He gave me discounts when he could and they were able to retrieve my information. The Apple store somehow messed up my glide pad(?) (mouse for a Macbook) so it was very difficult to use and Paul went above and beyond and fixed that for me as well at no cost.

I thought I had lost it all…

5/ 5

I couldn’t get any computer to read my external hard drive, which is where I had put all of my information. I googled for ways to fix my issue and I just got complicated, elaborate, lengthy steps to “try” to fix it. I took it to geek squad and they told me they had to send it away and that it was going to be really expensive. Finally I was counselled to look for a data recovery place, which is probably what geek squad was going to do anyway, and I found RTS. I called and was able to set an appointment pretty quickly. Dropped off my hard drive and they called me soon after and told me what they were going to be able to do. They were able to save my stuff. I couldn’t have been more satisfied.

I took my drive to a few companies to have it looked at (with RTS being the first) and ended up coming back to Paul after getting a few other quotes. Paul is incredibly professional and helpful and above all, honest. They have the most reasonable pricing and policies – you don’t pay if they can’t recover your data. Don’t hesitate to use RTS, they are the real deal.

It definitely was an emergency situation. As soon as I explained the problem, you jumped into action to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. The customer service, ease of communication, and the willingness to go out of the way to make the process painless was above and beyond. Everything that was promised to be done was superb!!! In this day and age there are not many companies that even compare to the quality of your service. I can’t say enough about the quality of your company. I highly recommend that anyone with a computer problem, Data recovery need or question to call RTS Data Recovery! Thank you again.

My external Mac drive suddenly failed on me and would not mount on my computer…

5/ 5

I had 25 years of work (2 TB) and no backup. I had someone come out to help me but he was a PC person and was not familiar with Mac. He was unable to do anything. I made several calls to Data Recovery companies. While most were closed or closing and wanted me to bring my drive the next day, RTS Data Recovery was open late hours and Paul Hersh was incredibly helpful. After working on my drive through the night and getting it to mount, the data was coming off the drive corrupt. Paul was able to send my hard drive out to be rebuilt and the data was successfully recovered. The things I like best about this company are 1. Paul – he was amazing – helpful, informative, sincere. 2. The pricing – First off, if they cannot retrieve the data there is NO CHARGE. That says ALOT! 3. Pricing. While other companies quoted me more than double “worst case scenario” prices. I was a worst case scenario and was relieved that it cost me 1/3 the price I was quoted by many other companies. Thank God and Paul, I now have all my data and am back in business. He even backed up the new drive onto another new drive for me so I start out with everything on 2 drives.

I was working on my notebook when I did a restart and the 500 GB internal hard drive started chirping like a canary.

5/ 5

What a depressing feeling as you recall your last backup date, and your mind begins to grasp just how much stuff has disappeared into thin air. Getting it back is now Job #1 and the first thing is is to make sure you don’t give it to some hack who tries to recover the data and can’t but charges you for trying. After doing some research, I found RTS. After talking with Paul I regained some piece of mind and confidence that he could probably recover my data. He quoted me a fixed fee and if he couldn’t recover the data, there would be no charge. Paul kept me informed during the recovery process and a week later I had my data back. What more could you ask?

I’m not one to leave reviews, but the service RTS provided was unbeatable…

5/ 5

I lost over 7TB of data in RAID5 and they were able to recover all but 3% – which was amazing news. More than anything, though, was how frequently Paul would call me to give an update on how things were going and approximately how much time was left. I’ve had thousand-dollar car repairs done without one call, let alone the 3+ Paul gave me. I admit that I shopped around for quite a few data recovery services, but RTS gave the best price and even gave me advice on what I could do if I chose not to use a data recovery service. If I ever lose anything again (I really hope not), there’s no doubt that I’ll be going with RTS again.

5/ 5

I had almost two GB of information on a jump drive where I had created all of the course work for four classes that I teach at a local university. I showed up for class and all of a sudden the computer would not recognize that my drive was plugged in. Luckily I had a back up that got me through that class, but I quickly realized I had only backed up about half of three of my courses and none of the fourth. I panicked and began searching for ways to recover my data. I found the RTS website and put in request for a quote. They called me within minutes to discuss what I needed. They assured me that they could most likely recover the data and the cost would be $200. I sent the drive off and within hours of receiving the notification that it had been delivered I received a phone call to let me know they had already recovered my data and it was immediately made available for me to recover from a cloud service as well as mailing me a hard copy of all of the information. This service is outstanding! I will recommend them to everyone!

5/ 5

I was Assistant Editing a docuseries shooting on a 5D and a c300. I arrived on set and the DP handed me the card to unload. It wouldn’t read. nothing was showing up. NOTHING. After many panicked hours of trying different card readers and checking other cards, we figured the CF card was bad. We could NOT afford to shoot a whole additional day. In a state of alarm, I asked my DIT friend who they recommended for looking into a bad CF card. They actually recommended this place in WEHO. Not Long Beach. I think a lot of people might be confused by that. It appears there is one RTS in WEHO and in Long Beach, and it appears they are owned by the same company, but according to yelp (at the time) the office in Long Bech was the only one open past 9pm on a Friday night (thank God!!) so we called the one in Long Beach, figuring they’d be less busy than a recovery place in hollywood, near all the studios. We were right. Call the number and try to speak with Paul if you can. I believe his extension is 37. I explained my situation and he he said he could take a look at it that night if I could get there by 1030pm, and that they usually take a few days to review data (understandably, I’m sure I’m not his only client). I raced down to Long Beach from Hollywood. It was a little hard to find, it’s basically a huge condo-looking white tower next to other huge white towers. and the entrance you want is in the back of the building, drive down the little hill (if you’re on the main street) and turn left. The next little entrance that looks like a private apt parking garage is it! Pull in there (park anywhere) and tell the sector guard you’re there to see Paul at RTS. Then you sign in and Paul will come down from his ivory tower of helpfulness and take your drive and give you a rough time estimate. In my case, he took it up, the security guard offered me a styrofoam cup of water and some bbq potato chips from his stash (thanks guy!) like I was in the waiting room of the ICU instead of some fancy condo skyscraper. They have a little rec room down there you can watch tv or nervous scan old books on the book shelf. I recommend insanely checking your phone every minute to see if Paul has somehow saved your career. Up to you. 20 mins later Paul called me and said he was able to see *something* on the card. Which is a positive sign. He asked if I could wait another hour while he ran tests. I said yes (I’d rather stay than drive all the way back). He ran more tests and later called . He had found media on the card, but it wasn’t copying off. He told me he’d need to run some more tests on it, with equipment he doesn’t usually use, in the morning, as it was 1130pm (past closing time). So I left, encouraged that he found SOMETHING on the card, and after he assured me I hadn’t accidentally (somehow) deleted it. He can see if files have been deleted or damaged. It was the latter. Which apparently “happens all the time”. Terrifying! TIP: TAKE YOUR DAMAGED DEVICE, LAPTOP AND WORKING EXTRA HARD DRIVE WITH YOU. He asked for a hard drive to put the possible recovered data on, and we were able to test it on my laptop in the lobby. Next day: I get a call from Paul saying he wasn’t able to save the data. It’s showing as .mov files now (yay) but it won’t copy or move. He said the last idea he had was to send it to his associates in Sacramento who can (apparently) do a deeper scrub of the data and mail back a stick. I asked how much that would be. He said “For a CF card recovery we charge $200 plus tax. If we do not recover the CF card, we don’t charge you anything. To send this card overnight to Sacramento would cost an additional $30 (or whatever UPS is going to charge). We can try to upload it to a server but since this is a lot of data and you are short on time, I would recommend having my counterparts buy you a thumb drive and have them mail that to you directly if they are able to restore the data.” Pretty dang good deal. Then Paul shipped the damaged CF card to Sacramento and that evening they were able to recover the files and PLAY them without error. The next day they were delivered and converted as usual. Very very thankful for Paul’s sense of urgency on our shoot. Highly recommend him, he could have totally raped us but he didn’t.

Their service was fantastic – when I ran into problems downloading the pictures from the USB stick that I had provided them for the files (and which they returned) , they were able to instead send me the pictures over the internet (not an ideal solution, being that it took hours – still, at the end of the day they did indeed get me my pictures back). Very responsive, good communnications about how to ship everything.

We had years of work on our company computer which died on us without a warning. RTS Data Recovery managed to get all of our data back without making us feel bad for not backing up more frequently. They were very prompt and professional. They even set us up on an automated cloud backup system. They saved our life not to mention a lot of money. We use them now for all of our computer issues. We even purchased a few new systems from then and they did the setup and installation without a hitch, it was completely seamless. Finally, a company I can depend on. Their work is Excellent!!!

A week ago I was unfortunately faced with a Blue Screen morning. In a panic (as I am self employed and my data is critical) called RTS Data Recovery. The team was extremely helpful and told me to bring my laptop in and they would see what they could do.

I am so happy to be the first to write a review for RTS. Loosing data is no fun, especially when that data is pictures and you are a photographer! I had lost over 4 photoshoots, a few that could not be re done. RTS was very quick on calling me back ( I called at 730am frantic and worried, and got a call back very shortly after I talked to the answering service) I was updated constantly when the tech Paul was working through my system, and he endured a few annoying worried calls from me as well. To my surprise, he got all my images back I needed at a REALLY low cost considering all the work he did to literally not just retrieve data back, but REPAIR image files that had been corrupted. I HIGHLY recommend this company, they also do not charge you unless he got the job done.

Q What is Data Recovery?

Data Recovery is a process of recovering the data from hardware or software components after various data disasters. Data access becomes void after some disaster and special data recovery techniques are usually needed to access this lost data again.

Q Why I lost my data?

Data Loss can occur due to many reasons. Various disasters can strike your computing machine or data such as corrupted hardware or software, system errors, virus and Spyware attack and various other natural disasters.

Q How can I prevent Data Loss?

Data Loss can be prevented by creating and managing regular data backups, preferably at remote location. Every computing machine is prone to disasters. Hence, prevention is the best cure of any type of data loss.

Q If my machine or disk gets corrupted, what should I do?

This is a high alert scenario for the safety of you disk and data. Stop using the machine to prevent any further damage or data loss. Write down all the symptoms and the data files and folders that seems to be missing. Do not open format the drive, as it can create permanent bad sectors on the hard disk. Storage device should also be not used, as it can damage the physical drives. Try not to install or uninstall any software or to create any new file on the hard disk.

It’s better to seek advice from a Data Recovery expert. You can call us 24/7 or use our Contact Us form for free evaluation. A support specialist will gather some information from you and let you know the extent of your problem.

Q Is data recovery expensive if we consult professional services?

As Data Recovery is labor extensive job, hence it seems to be extensive. But the data recovery process carried out at home can prove to be damaging. Since, Data Recovery professionals are fully equipped with techniques to recover data and to restore it. Otherwise, your precious data can be lost for ever. Apart from these the time taken to recover the lost data is much less than the time taken to recreate the files.

Q Can all data be retrieved?

Unfortunately, answer to this question is No. Sometimes, the damage is so severe that retrieving each bit and byte of data becomes almost impossible, for example, if a data storage tape gets fire, its impossible to recover data completely. But otherwise for most of the data disasters that happen, data recovery success rate is up to 90%.

Q How long the whole Data Recovery Process takes?

It depends totally on the extent of the damage your machine is suffering from. But normally from 1 to 5 working days are taken to recover and restore your crucial data. This can be better answered once we have more specific details of your specific situation.

Q What are the most common hard drive problems?

Common hard drive problems include User Errors, Software error, Hard drive electronic failures, Hard drive arm failures and Hard drive platter failures.

By mistake I deleted my file, would it be possible to recover it from hard drive?

When a file is deleted, the operating system marks the file name with a character that informs the computer that it has been deleted. The deleted data is actually still on the drive until the file system overwrites it, but the operating system can no longer access it. The process of hard disk drive recovery finds the data that the operating system is unaware of, but still exists in individual clusters on the hard drive and hence, it can be recovered if worked upon quickly to prevent from over-writing.

Q Partition has been deleted from my hard drive, what should I do?

In this case, utility programs usage should be avoided, as they do not always provide satisfactory results. If its “As-Failed” condition, you can usually recover your data with the entire directory structure intact. However, NOT RUNNING UTILITY PROGRAMS IS CRITICAL. Do not install new programs or attempt to save data onto the affected drive; this could make the situation worst.

Q What does Defragmentation mean?

The data that is seen logically as one piece can be divided physically in pieces, saved in different locations on a media. It takes time to load this data back, so after some time it looks like that the computer started to work slower. More time is usually taken to start a program or load some file. Defragmentation can put these pieces, one by one, in the media taking less time to load the data.

Q Is there any role of Fragmentation in Hard Drive Data Recovery Process?

When files become fragmented, they are stored in multiple clusters on the hard drive, which makes the computer take more time to read it. A drive with a lot of fragmentation will be harder to recover in the event of crash. Therefore, it is recommended to regularly defragment your hard drive, as hard drive recovery preparation.

Q If I have hard drive of top manufacturer, how long it can survive without any error?

The hard disk is actually very durable, and good maintenance will ensure long life. If it is not exposed to extreme temperatures, and does not suffer any physical damage, it can easily last for ten years. However, hard disks do have several moving parts, and can become damaged or wear out with time.

Q Can I use hard drive if it is not damaged critically?

You should immediately stop using the damaged drive. It is essential that it is not even turned on. Every moment the drive is powered, it can potentially cause critical damage making the drive unrecoverable.

Q Can disk utilities be used efficiently for lost data?

Not by rule. The fact is that more data loss is reported in America due to disk repair utilities than to some actual or natural disaster. Trying data retrieval using improper procedures or techniques can make a bad situation even worse, resulting in a more labor intensive recovery process, as a result.

Q Is there any kind of symptoms associated before Hard Drive Failure?

There are usually warning signs involved before a Hard Drive Failure occur. Some classic signs may include strange sounds, noise, popping, frequent crashing, virus attacks or similar problems. Most of the time information lost through a temporary crash is salvageable. You must, however, have to hire a data recovery specialist if such a crisis occurs to your computer.

Q What is Hard Drive Evaluation?

Evaluation is an extensive analysis of your media to determine:

Whether the problems are physical (hardware malfunction), or logical (corrupted data or structure), or the both?
Physical readability of the media (we recover your data from the copy, keeping your media untouchable, unless you require to fix your media in-place)
Whether rebuild of the media structure required and possible?
Whether the media data is corrupted, and how much?
Whether recovery is recommended, and an estimate of time, cost and result?

Q How much data can be retrieved from damaged media?

From our experience, about 80-90% of data can be retrieved uncorrupted from damaged media, depending on severity of the problem.

Q How can data loss be prevented?

Backup in one single word is the answer. Backing up the data is the best way to control crashed hard drives data loss. As, they say prevention is the best cure, so preventing data for critical loss is the best way. Crash hard drive might be unable to recover even a single bit of data so don’t put yourself at risk by not properly backing up your data. You can choose backup ways by estimating your budget and value of data. But with backing up the data, test restore performance should also be ensured.

Q What is File Recovery?

File recovery refers to the recovery of individual files in cases where there is little doubt that the file system and hardware are operating normally. The individual files may have been corrupted or even deleted, accidentally or intentionally. Examples of events that can corrupt files are software malfunction, power failure, physical shock and viruses.

Q Can I recover my deleted files?

When you delete a file, it is taken off the list of files that the user sees. The file system writes at the beginning of the file that the region where the deleted file is stored could be used for storing other files. In such circumstances, files can be recovered but it requires the services of a professional data recovery company.

Q Under what scenarios can I recover files accidentally deleted?

If new data has not overwritten deleted data, you can recover files in almost all scenarios, including:

Files deleted from the Recycle Bin or a network shared folder.
Files deleted in the DOS command window or from Windows Explorer with the SHIFT key held down.

Q Under what scenarios Can I recover lost Outlook pst files?

A pst file is likely to be recovered in the following cases:

The volume became corrupt or was accidentally deleted.
The file was no more than a few megabytes and was accidentally deleted.
The volume was NTFS-formatted and had been frequently defragmente

Q Can I recover files from reformatted, corrupted or deleted volumes?

Reformatted volumes can be recovered using the Long Search. NTFS volumes are highly recoverable. On reformatted FAT volumes, only contiguous files can be recovered. Deleted or corrupted volumes can be recovered using the Quick or Long Search and selecting the corresponding disk number. Both NTFS and FAT file systems are highly recoverable.

I have single partitioned hard disk which is not bootable as well, can I recover my files from it?
File recovery becomes instantly more difficult in this case. Most recovery programs will need a place to copy recovered data, and if you are using the same drive which has the lost data on it you have no guarantee that you will not be destroying more data than you save.

It’s a far better idea to either install a new hard drive onto the current system and put a new OS on that, or find another computer to transfer the lost hard drive to. This Scenario can be very difficult to deal. It better to have assistance from RTS Data Recovery Professionals.

Q How Can I choose myself any tool to recover my files like Ms Word File?

Data recovery tools use different methods to recover data. Some tools are designed for recovering deleted files, others are better at restoring overwritten files, or recovering files from disks that are physically damaged. Some data recovery software products have been developed specifically for recovering photo images, or Microsoft Word or Excel document files. Such products may succeed where others fail because they understand what these files look like, and can recognize their data when other clues to its existence have vanished.
