  • Clicking, Whirring, or Grinding Noises - immediately power down the device
  • Water Damage - remove the battery and other memory chips from the device and let it dry out.
  • Fire Damage - do not use the drive or attempt to open it up
  • Deleted or missing files - do not use the drive and turn it off to avoid overwriting information.

Do not open the hard drive to attempt a DIY recovery as you could cause irreversible damage and render your files unrecoverable. Call a professional data recovery company with proper security certifications and a Cleanroom facility for recovery.

    This Senior Data specialist immediately, effortless, and consistently proved his high level of experience, knowledge and professionalism in stellar customer service. I couldn''t be happier with my entire experience with Secure Data Recovery. Thank you, Jake.

    Fantastic customer service

    Dmitry was amazing through the whole process! I really felt taken care of. He, and the rest of the staff were always quick to respond, kind, and considerate. They got my drive back to me far faster than I could have ever expected. They were able to restore almost all of my data, and what I lost was trivial in comparison to what I got back. This drive was used as my back-up and storage for many years. So what they were able to give me was my history. I couldn''t recommend them any higher.

    I recently worked with Dmitry at Secure Data to get data recovered from my Western Digital SATA drive. He was fantastic. Very responsive, very professional and he kept in communication with me throughout the process. The Secure Data Team was able to recover 99% of my data in record time. I would highly recommend Dmitry and the Secure Data Team.

    Excellent customer service from Dmitry

    I could not have asked for a better customer experience. Dmitry offered personalized customer service. He was quick, courteous, and did everything he could to resolve my problem for me. While ultimately I was unable to use the service because of price, Dmitry tried everything he could and exhausted every option available. I would not hesitate to use this service.

    R Schlott

    Eric was my consultant at Secure Data. From the moment I called, Eric was very helpful and patient with me (I am not savvy when it comes to technology). He informed me of the process and assured me that my data recovery would be successful. Today I received my recovered files which was approximately 68,000 photos and digital artwork that I have produced during the last ten years. Eric worked with me in resolving my issues and was very understanding and professional. I am very satisfied with results and could not have had a better outcome.

    Very Professional & Efficient

    Eric D was so great communicating with me throughout the entire process of my hard-drive recovery and delivered way better than promised on the timing. Everything was sent to me package up nicely and the instructions were easy to download everything off the portable hard drive sent. I would highly recommend SDR and use them again for sure.
