Unite Innovations data recovery services can recover lost files resulting from hardware malfunctions, software conflicts, user error, or viruses.
The data recovery and disposal service covers everything from single disks to storage arrays.
Hard drive data recovery is possible on nearly every type of computer system. Our data recovery lab technicians and engineers are a highly skilled team trained and experienced in the latest data recovery techniques with years of successful hard drive recovery experience behind them on almost every type of file system and computer system.
The data recovery and disposal service covers everything from single disks to storage arrays. Generally, hard drives fail or are inaccessible due to one of two common reasons:
Physical Crash: When a hard drive is making ticking or scratching noises due to old or worn out parts it can lose the data contained within. The read / write heads in the hard drive can fail; failed motors are common; or the platters on which the data is stored can become damaged.
Physical damage can also be due to mishandling of the drive or circuit board failure which is attached to the hard drive. Physical damage to the disks itself always causes at least some data loss. And, in many cases with physically damaged hard drives, the logic structure of the file system may also get damaged. Any damage of this sort constitutes a physical crash of a hard drive..
Logic Crash: Far more common than physical damage is logical corruption or damage to a file system. Logic damage is primarily caused by human error, which includes accidental deletion of files, accidentally formatting a hard drive, and even power outages can cause file system structures to become damaged. Logical crashes can cause a variety of problems including total system crashes and actual loss of data.

The appropriate “cleaning” method for electronic media depends on the type. The main division is between “magnetic media” and “optical media.” Though both contain information in electronic form, the methods for secure disposal are very different.
Many people are under the impression that all they need to do is “delete” a file from a computer’s hard drive or other storage media. Unfortunately, that’s almost never sufficient. In most cases,”delete” simply changes indexing information about a file, sort of like marking through the entry in a book’s table of contents but leaving the pages behind.
Emptying the “recycle bin” or the “trash” folder of deleted files is usually also ineffective. These methods remove the pointers (indexes) to the deleted files, but the data itself still remains on the storage media as unallocated space.
Even if the unallocated space is subsequently used by new files, there are sophisticated scanning methods that could be used to recover data previously stored in those locations.
Some un-rewritable media, like CD-Rs and DVD-Rs, can’t have their contents deleted in any case. Inoperable media, like a crashed hard drive, may be so corrupted that you cannot access it using normal computer operations; but it still may have data on it that can be recovered by others.
Ensures that your private, important information is disposed of properly so that it doesn’t end up in the wrong hands.
