Best Data Recovery in Indianapolis

Bray Technologies - Affordable data recovery starting at just $99

We have our own class 100 clean Air flow process for repairing hard drives!

Data recovery is the process of retrieving data from damaged, failed, corrupted, or inaccessible media. The media can be any electronic storage medium including but not limited to:

Hard Drives, Flash Drives, Floppy drives, Tape backup, SD Memory, Solid State Drive, Memory Cards, Raid Arrays and just about anything that stores electronic information.

Logical Recovery Verses Physical Recovery

Electronic information is stored in a logical container called a partition. The partition is formatted so that the device knows how much space is available for storage and where the storage location starts and ends. The partition contains a master file table of some type. These master file tables vary based on the operating system used by your electronic device. The master file table is a map of where your files are stored. This map is used by your device to add, change and delete files.

Logical recovery is needed when users delete data accidentally or the master file table is damaged and your device cannot access the data.

Deleted Files: Logical recovery is also used when users delete files by accident. The files are marked as deleted in the master file table and the file space is marked as available for use. These files can be recovered as long as the file space has not been overwritten by new data or wiped with a cleaner program. If you have deleted files accidentally, donít install anything on the computer. Shut the computer off and take it in for data recovery. Many people have destroyed their data by installing recovery programs on the drive in which they want to recover from or by running a disk repair tool like check disk or file defragmenter like Microsoft defrag.

Logical recovery is performed using software program that attempts to read the master file table by ignoring errors or accessing a second copy of the master file table. Once the master file table is read or repaired then the data can be accessed.

RAW Recovery: If the master file tables are damaged beyond repair, files can be carved from the raw data using file signatures. Most files have a signature at the start and end of a file. By reading the drive from start to finish, some files can be carved out of the data and recovered. This works well with small files but is not good at large files. Files are stored in many small pieces called clusters. Full Recovery is difficult without the master file table to show where all the clusters are located. When using the raw recovery method, the files original name is lost but its contents are intact. Picture, spreadsheet and documents are recoverable with this technique due to fitting in one cluster or sequential clusters.

Physical Recovery  is when the device has an electronic or physical damage that is preventing access to your data.

Printed Circuit Board (PCB) failure is a common occurrence. This is when a chip or circuit on the board fails. The board can be replaced with a donor board from an identical board in most cases. The serial chip must be moved from the original PCB to the donor board. Special tools are required to perform this.

Mechanical Failure

Hard drive failure is common after 1 to 5 years of operation based on the model and initial quality of drive. I have had new drives fail in one month and others run for 10 years. Hard drives contain spinning disks with an actuator arms that moves read / write heads over the disks to read and write data. The actuator arm with read / write heads is called a head stack. When the head stack fails, the drive must be repaired in a clean room facility. A clean room is an area that is 99.99% dust free. The drive is opened and the head stack is removed and then replaced with a donor head stack.

Description: C:\Users\DougBray\Documents\My Web Sites\Braytech2\hd.jpg

Head crash is when the read / write head physically scrapes the spinning platters. The magnetic coating on the disk is scraped off. This destroys the head stack and makes the drive nearly impossible to recover. All the magnetic power covers the disks and causes any new head stack to fail immediately.


 

  • Recover from almost any media: Hard Drives, floppy disks, memory sticks, flash drives, tapes, etc.....
     
  • Recovery Starts at $99 for Floppy disks and goes up from there.
     
  • Data Recovery Diagnosis: Diagnose a single storage device. The initial fee is $99. This diagnosis fee is non-refundable. The diagnosis phase will allow us to evaluate the condition of the device. If data recovery can be performed without a clean room repair, the following rate structure applies:
     
  • Floppy disk recovery: $99 per disk (includes diagnosis)
     
  • Memory stick / Flash Drive (4gb or smaller) recovery $250 (includes diagnosis)
     
  • Standard Recovery for Hard Drive or Flash Drive larger than 4gb (Non-Raid single Disc) $500 (Includes Diagnosis)
     
  • Express service is available for $100 per device. Your diagnosis will be started the day it is received at our office.
     
  • Clean room repair, Firmware repair or Flash Drive Chip off extraction may be required on some recovery jobs. We have a class 100 clean room in house. Clean room repair, Firmware repair or Flash Drive Chip off extraction starts at $750 per device.
     
  • RAID Array - starts at $600 per hard drive in the array
     
  • Tape Drive Media Recovery - Call!

Shipping and media charges are additional and will be quoted after diagnosis. The rates above are estimated and may vary depending on your configuration and data recovery time frame required.

Payment for the diagnosis is required when the device is submitted. If data can be recovered you will be required to pay for recovery at the time of approval. Please provide as much detail as possible with your request. Mail in recovery instructions PDF.
