Data Recovery

If your hard disk is failing, it's important to act quickly.  A completely failed hard disk is only really repairable in a laboratory-like, clean, dust-free environment.  This is a specialist service and costs a great deal of money.

If I am contacted in time, I can often recover information from a failing hard disk, even when your computer will not boot up.

It is also important to protect yourself against losing your data with regular backups.
