Data Recovery for PC and Laptop

Phil Guy Computer & Repairs endeavour to provide you with a professional, cost effective and efficient data recovery service when your computer will not start and from hard disks that are not working and other electronic based media.

Data Recovery

Our data recovery service is recommended when the following happens:

  • Malware or Virus infection
  • Corrupted files
  • Accidental file deletion
  • Computer Will Not Start or Blue Screen of Death problems
  • Your system does not recognise the hard drive
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Warnings of Hard Drive Failure
  • Microsoft Windows crashes
  • Accidental formatting

The success of our Data Recovery services will depend on the severity and type of problem that you have encountered.  In the vast majority of cases we are able to collect all or most of the data that you are no longer able to access but in some cases, due to the nature of the beast we cannot guarantee with any certainty if all or only some of your data will be recovered. Our initial analysis is free but if we are engaged to recover your data you should have a clear understanding that costs can be higher than for standard repairs as data recovery usually takes a long time, often many days of continuous high intensity processing by our computers and supporting drives and of course our expertise. Costs are based on the severity of the problem found and the size of the drive that you wish us to recover data from.  We may be able to give you a rough estimate once our initial analysis has been completed.  If after initial analysis and being engaged to recover the data, we subsequently find we are unable to recover any data, then we will waive our recovery charges to you and instead charge you our standard software charge.

If you have accidently deleted any files and can't recover them from trash. Turn off your computer immediately as your computer can overwrite the deleted files which will make them unrecoverable.

Well used to dealing with PC and Laptop repairs in Plymstock and the surrounding South Hams and Plymouth Area, Phil Guy Computer & Repairs have an in depth knowledge of dealing with such problems.  In addition to performing data recovery, we can also provide a copy of your data on external media (DVD-ROM) or your own supplied storage device.  Most people use our data recovery service in conjunction with our other services.

Please note that under no circumstances will Phil Guy Computer & Repairs be liable for data loss when we perform equipment maintenance. We strongly recommend that you back up your data on a separate medium ( for example by DVD, external hard-drive, USB stick or on-line) on a regular basis.
