Data recovery software, services and tools are essential items for highly skilled professional companies offering related services, as is our data recapturing group. Although retrieval products and systems are extensively advertised on the internet, some offering free downloads; one’s approach should be on the side of caution.
Depending on the cause of the problem being experienced, taking the DIY route and employing incorrect methods, may result in data becoming lost with no chance of being subsequently recaptured, even by experts. However, there are reputable software suppliers who use the same medium to advertise their services and products – you just need to ensure that you are dealing with one of them and not the other kind.
There are many different categories of data recovery software and services, which includes the required tools for each.
Types and Purposes
- Email migration
- Data base
- Files and their repair
- Open Office
- Memory stick
There are suppliers of products who periodically review market offerings, which are of great assistance in giving qualified information to users, who can then avoid some of the pitfalls of making an incorrect purchase for their purposes. If they guarantee a no-risk or obligation evaluation, plus their verifiable contact details and address, chances are much greater that they stand by their products.
Hard drive data recovery is definitely best left to our experts. It is vitally important to ascertain whether the problem can be corrected with software or whether a faulty hard drive is the source of the issue.
Identify a Faulty Hard Drive
These are some of the symptoms of a faulty hard drive:
- Clicking, whirring or other unusual mechanical sound is heard
- “No boot device present press any key to continue” and hard drive is not recognised in the BIOS
- PC has an I/O error and user cannot access operating system
- Failed server and drives structured with RAID
- Hard drive is spinning, but unable to be detected in the BIOS
- Poor, extremely slow performance can be indicative of an imminent hard drive failure
- Frequent freezing
- Corrupted data
- Strange behaviour, like refusing to boot up again after experiencing a serious error
- Frequent, sudden appearance of error messages, related to the file system during normal usage
- Start up problems, either excessively slow or complete refusal to start up
Hard drive investigations, evaluations, repair, and actual data recovery from the hard drive, must only be undertaken by qualified and experienced technical specialists like our expert team, who operates in a certified Class 100 clean room, one of which is in place in each of our branches.
This perfectly sealed room with air management and filtration systems ensures that when a hard drive is opened and worked on, no pollutants, dust, humidity and other airborne debris can contaminate the highly sensitive surface of the drive and its components. Any pollution will have serious adverse effects on this delicate equipment. Certification is normally renewed annually, providing that the room maintains its clean properties.
Our company and highly qualified, experienced technicians employ the latest, most up to data retrieval software and hardware. Our dynamic management team and each and every employee are fully aware that when computer problems strike, customers are, at best, unhappy and at worst, they panic; an indication of how valuable stored data, records and information really are.
When anything goes wrong, hard- or software related, it means trouble to the user and not all users are equally comfortable with this technology, even when it is trouble-free and working correctly. We truly understand their deep concern and worries, ensuring that they are treated with due respect and integrity.
Down time is feared by one and all, especially those who work from home, whether for themselves or as employees of a company. No one can really afford to be incommunicado for long, and permanent data loss represents the worst possible scenario.
All it takes to start resolving your problem, whether it is related to data recovery software, services and tools or hardware, is a phone call to one of our trained staff members, who will troubleshoot with you and recommend a solution. We undertake to help you in the shortest possible time.

Your computer often contains very important information such as private messages, client details, accounting details and even personal information such as family photos and scanned documents. It is for this reason that you need to make sure that your information is secured and backed up at all times, since you never know when disaster can strike. A crashed hard drive, accidental deletion and even theft can all contribute to unwanted information loss and this can leave you in an awkward position.
It is therefore essential to obtain a data recovery quotation from a professional data recovery services provider such as Intratec.
Businesses are especially vulnerable to information being lost or deleted, since they have multiple computer operators or employees, and accidents do happen. This is why many organizations have a centralized system that manages their information and keeps it safe. Users are logged into the system and backups are being done on a daily basis to ensure that all information is kept secure.
Losing information is not only threatening concern for businesses, but it is also a legal requirement for them to retain all their information and documentation for a predetermined time before it can be archived or destroyed. This is to allow for accurate record keeping and the preservation of information in the event that it is needed in any legal disputes or other important situations. Therefore, businesses need to make sure that they have a reliable system to keep track of their information, and perform regular maintenance and backups. This can be done by allowing for backups to be done in more than one location, and that all backed up information be verified to ensure validity.
Security is another aspect that is extremely important for any business. Information needs to be kept in a safe location that is only accessible to authorised users. In many cases, especially when a business works with sensitive client information, the law requires a level of privacy that needs to be upheld for all customers and businesses need to comply with these regulations to avoid having to pay penalties and make themselves vulnerable to legal battles. Unfortunately, computer equipment can be damaged or become faulty; it can also fall victim to theft, which is why there is always a risk of information being lost. When this happens, you need to make use of a professional information recovering service in order to get your information back.
Although recovery is not always completely guaranteed, this service has a very high success rate and it is the only real chance that you have to get your information back when your disk has been damaged or your computer system is stolen. People often save their information on their notebooks and this is a high theft risk for most people. Notebooks are portable and this has the added risk of being much more vulnerable to theft.
Hard drive recovery is a very essential service that allows people and businesses to regain their valuable information on damaged disks. The process is quite complicated, which is why special equipment is needed to perform this service. Your hardware can be carefully analysed and disks can even be recreated to assist with the recovery of information. This service include recovering damaged email messages, documents and photos on computer devices, as well as recovering damaged disk partitions.
Some of these processes can be quite complex, especially in the case with larger organizations that had significant damage to their equipment. This means that there is potentially a lot of work and effort going into this service and this is why customers are being encouraged to always ensure that they have secure backups in various locations to avoid the potential loss of information when equipment stops working or when a computer system gets stolen.
Depending on the amount of information you are looking to retrieve, the costs associated with this service can vary. By requesting a comprehensive data recovery quotation from a professional service provider such as Intratec, you will be able to see how cost effective this service is. Especially if you consider that your information can be recovered in most cases and you will have your information back, save and secure. It’s a very cost effective way of regaining your data, since it can be potentially expensive for businesses to lose information.

Most people are fully aware of operating systems such as Windows which is commonly used but Windows is not the only operating system available on the market. Another well known operating system is Linux. For the average user using Linux might proof to be quite beneficial but Linux data recovery is something which should rather be done by professionals such as Intratec.
You might be asking why people use Linux operating systems. Well for one thing, it’s a free open source operating system which allows its users to modify it as they please. Commonly used as a server, the loss of data will be costly for any company, and the recovery of the data are thus vital. Intratec’s knowledgeable and skilled technicians are highly trained in Linux data recovery. Since they understand the more complexities of this operating system, they can recover any and all data lost from the server or hard drive.
Linux systems are widely used as servers, but apart from that they have been used for an array of purposes due to its stability and speed. The latter is because Linux does not make use of many graphic resources which allows the operating system to run at higher speed.
Some of the purposes for which Linux are distributed include security, computer architecture support, localisation to particular language or region settings and more. Embedded Linux operating systems are incorporated in media players, personal digital assistants, mobile phones and other network equipment, consumer electronic, machine control and other devices that require embedded computer systems.
Although Linux is considered to be one of the most stable operating systems available, a number of things might happen that will require Linux data recovery solutions. When this happens be sure to contact Intratec. With more than 5 years experience recovering data on a number of operating systems and more, Intratec will not only be able to safe your data, but your time and money too!
