Data Recovery

Q. What is a data recovery service?

Data recovery is the process of salvaging data from damaged, failed, corrupted, or inaccessible secondary storage media when it cannot be accessed normally. Often the data are being salvaged from storage media such as internal or external hard disk drives, solid state drives (SSD), USB flash, storage tapes, CDs, DVDs, RAID, and other electronics. Recovery may be required due to physical damage to the storage device or logical damage to the file system that prevents it from being mounted by the host operating system.

Q. what if you cannot recover my data?

We wont charge you if we cannot recover your data. No data no charge.

Q. What are the chances of recovering data from my hard disk?

It depends how damadged your hard disk is. We need to test it before we can say anything for sure.

Q. What is the minimum charges for the data recovery service?

Our data recovery service starts from £55. If it is going to cost more than £55 then we will let you know before recovering data as sometimes data is not that valuable. If you will accept the quotation we will do the job otherwise it wont cost you anything.

Please note that data recovery is different from data backup. Our data backup charges starts from £35.

Wired and Wireless network

Q. Will it be possible to access files saved on other computers on the network?

Yes that is the main reason of setting up the network. File sharing between computers gives you more flexibity than using floppy drives or Zip drives. Not only can you share photos, music files, and documents, you can also use a home network to save copies of all of your important data on a different computer. Backups are one of the most critical yet overlooked tasks in home networking.

Q. Is it possible to access Broadband Internet on different computer on the network?

Yes it is possible to access the Internet at the same time on all computers on the network.

Yes it is possible to share a printer on the network. This means we can have one printer installed on a computer and print from any other computer on the network.

There are number of ways to make our wireless networks safe. We can set the highest possible security like WPA2, which would prevent intruders to use the Internet via your router.

Yes we can troubleshoot any home or small business network even if we did not originally install it.
