Data Recovery Services

Need to recover data from your computer or laptop, FLASH Cards, External Storage?

Yaj Computers' most common data recovery requests include saving files from crashed computers, FLASH Cards, External Storage (nonbooting PCsMacbooks, and laptops) and virus-infected computers (transferring the data to a new computer when a virus removal is not an option).

Data Backup Solutions
We also provide data backup solutions to keep your data safe for the next inevitable computer crash.

Hard Drives are Failure-Prone
Hard drives store information like music, documents, email and pictures on your computer. We have hard drives in our computers to store the information that would otherwise be lost when the computer shuts down. Unlike other critical electronic computer components, hard drives are more mechanical in nature, experiencing a lot of movement that leads to failure, which means the possibility of data loss.
Causes of Failure
The hard drive has a circuit board that communicates with the computer. This can be damaged by power surges and overheating. If the hard drive gets bumped, the head (which is responsible for reading and writing data to platters in the hard drive) can hit the surface of the disk. If this happens, then you are likely to hear a clicking sound coming from your hard drive. Your computer's hard drive spins very fast, and when the spindle locks up, won't spin properly.
Common reasons for data recovery requests include instances where the hard drive...
·         has been hit by a virus (lately, Yaj Computers has seen a lot of malicious programs hiding files on your desktop and My Documents folder)
·         has been formatted
·         makes clicking noises
·         has burned chips
·         has failing logic boards
·         no longer spins
·         has data errors
·         has physical damage
·         has suffered fire or flood damage

Warning Signs
Listen for odd sounds like clicking sounds, grinding noises, and whirring sounds - if you hear these noises, stop using the computer immediately. A slowing computer that is not explained by low memory could be related to the hard drive, especially if it takes a long time to open file folders. Watch out for blue-screen issues, computer boot failures, and sudden, unexpected reboots. These can be signs that your hard drive's death is imminent.
What You Can Do About It
First, back up your files regularly, or get help with setting a backup services. If it's too late, then it may be time for a data recovery service, which is not as easy as backing up your computer in the first place.
