Lost or inaccessible data? Hard disk crashes ? Worry no more.

Make ADRC your first and only stop for data recovery. With ADRC, it’s "no required data recovered, no charge" and we deliver results.

The data storage devices in your computer can fail in many different ways but the data stored in them is not always completely gone.

Data device (such as hard disk) failures could come from sources: file corruption, virus attacks, mechanical or electrical problems and, very frequently, human error.

We can recover data from all of these types of failure with different multi-pronged strategies.


Our Services to You

ADRC offers you a comprehensive suite of data recovery services. We offer everything from a free software solution that you can download to use as a “first-aid” measure to a comprehensive clean room procedure where each platter in your hard disk are painstakingly dismantled and individually examined to recover its data.

Whether you are an individual with a failed laptop hard disk or MNC with a malfunctioning RAID server, ADRC has a data recovery solution for you.

Whether you have lost mission-critical business data or irreplaceable personal information, we will put our specialist knowledge and state-of-the-art technology to recover your data for you.

Even in the case if your business data is sabotaged, we can recover them for you and also forensically examine the media so you could find out if your important data has been copied out and any litigation process required.

ADRC enjoys an unmatched success rate backed by a consistent track record of success after other data recovery companies have failed, proven beyond doubt by the data recovery test drill. Call us now and allow us lead you out of hard disk crashes nightmare.

About Hard DIsk Crashes

Hard disk crash is something that is completely undesirable as your data can literally turn to dust. To know why this happens, you must at least know the components of the hard disk involved when reading and writing data.

Platter - the disc where data is written to. Made of glass or ceramic materials, its top layer is coated with magnetic materials. Simply explain, the smallest magnetic units forming the computer bits are constantly set to one or zero (presence or absence of magnetic field) when data is written or erased.

Head Arm – the read/write head is held up and attached to the head arm

Voice coil – the voice coil manipulates the arm and the read/write head, and positions them using the principle of electrical coils in magnetic field.

Read/Write Head – there is a small, small, magnet (1mm square or smaller) which manipulates the magnetic bit on the platter forming our data.

During operation, the platters are spun at very high speeds at which creates a pocket of air. The read/write head floats on this very pocket of air. It is extremely vital that this pocket of air is not interrupted in any way.

If it is, usually through interference of foreign particles like dust, the read/write will simply drop, crashing onto the spinning platter. Hence the term head crash was coined as this is what literally happens.

What’s the big deal though? Well, remember where your data is stored? On the platter, that’s where. And when the head crashes on it, it is literally physically scraping those bits of data of the platter. The data has become dust, and there is no way for you to read or recover anything from those small dust particles.

The scraping and grinding sounds you may hear coming out from the hard disk is the sound of the read/write head crashing onto the platter. So if you hear these sounds, quickly turn off you computer! Switch off the main switch immediately to minimise damage and do not go through normal shut down procedures! Any delay may cause irreversible damage to the hard disk.
