I am an Apple developer and I owe a massive thanks to R3 Data Recovery who saved my precious data when my Western Digital My Book 2 TB drive crashed on me, which is why I decided to write this review. Everything was smooth sailing from start to finish, for me anyway as I knew my drive would be in safe hands. Andy sent a courier to collect my drive which was promptly collected the following day, even though my second contact when I had finally made my decision to go with R3 Data Recovery was on a Sunday at very early hours, Andy emailed me back straight away as he was still working on another job, impressed, I was. During the process I spoke to Mike on the phone for an update who informed me that they had to build a custom heat sink so the drive would stay on long enough to get the image from the drive and the heat dissipation was to prevent the motor bearing over heating due to friction as there were just short of 4Billion sectors on my drive and several million of those were bad. One of the worst they had seen, at least amongst their current batch of recoveries, and that even new heads would have struggled to improve the read times by a few percent, and that the only cause for this would be a head crash, most likely during power fluctuations or a knock or drop, pointing to slight spindle to motor angle change, all very technical stuff, again making me feel confident that I had made the right choice in choosing R3 Data Recovery. While my drive was in recovery I was informed of every step of the procedure and also had a very nice courtesy email from Andy reassuring me that my data was in the process of recovery and that there was no need for concern, which was very much appreciated and went a long way to calm my peace of mind and as soon as the raw data image was on the recovery machine, Andy had the faulty drive couriered back to me so I could return the drive to WD for a warranty replacement, now that is what I call customer service. The recovery did take a bit longer than expected, but considering the state of the drive this was more than acceptable and as soon as my data was recovered from the image and copied to the replacement drive, that was promptly sent back to me with all my data intact and safe, so all in all they sent me three couriers, and recovered every bit of my data, I have no clue how they did it and I really do not know what I would have done without their help, as it certainly would have been the end of my App development days for the foreseeable future. I whole heartedly recommend R3 Data Recovery to anyone who is of need of data recovery, and would urge you to look nowhere else for the sake of your data and your sanity. In my humble opinion R3 Data Recovery are more than specialists they are genuine professionals.

After I thought I had lost nearly 6 years of filmmaking work, R3 were able to tackle my damaged hard drive head on. Despite my drive being in a particularly ropey state, Andy and his team rose to challenge and ensured me that they would be able to retrieve the key pieces of data that I required, all within the initial quotation price.I am thrilled to report that they excelled themselves and retrieved far more than I anticipated. A highly recommended service. You can hear my full story at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4qlpIDJXzA

I'm utterely amazed to have found a company which combines exceptional service with empathy, yet remains utterly professional. I managed to wipe out my entire hard drive and as a recently self employed individual struggling to get along it was a breath of fresh air to have someone be compasionate to what must be 'yet another lost data customer'. The process of recovery was so incredibly simple and fast. I received a courier post the next morning(I only called late in the afternoon) and had simple, clear instrustions on what to do. A few hours later and I was breathing again. Thank you so much Andy, you have restored my faith to show there are ethical and sympathetic businesses still to be found. I wouldn't consider anyone else if you are still phoning around. I couldn't rate this service highly enough.

I would recommend R3 Data Recovery to anyone who has lost data and needs it recovering ASAP I lost all my important and vital data from my 8GB Sony USB, which I had been using for years. I had used the USB earlier in the day and saved updates to some of my important files. Two hours later, after returning from a visit to town I realised that my USB wasn’t working, and was not being recognised. I must have tried restarting my laptop several times, trying each of the 4 USB 2.0 slots and all the 4 laptops at home. I also called into a few of the local PC repair shops and they all told me it was a hopeless case! I Googled a few names and R3 Data Recovery came top. I emailed them a feedback requesting a telephone call and I was called the very next day. After speaking to Andy Butler I sent my USB in the post the very next day and I was then sent a list of all the files they had managed to recover (which was all that was on the USB) and soon after they had emailed me the link to a secure download of the entire lost content of the USB. I would without doubt recommend R3 Data Recovery and Andy Butler for their professionalism, their speed of recovering the files/data. Their level of customer support and also the manner in reassuring the customers of being able to recover what’s in their power and within the timeline stipulated. An A1 company and service. Massive thank you to all at R3 Data Recovery

My hardrive on my laptop crashed with a years worth of work and photos on it, I tried PC world and a local shop to fix it but didn't have any sucess. I did a Google search and found R3 data recovery, they were great to deal with a managed to recover 99% of my data. I only lost 410 files out of 57000. They were well priced, professional and kept me up to date with the progress, a great job and I will recommend them to anybody who needs important imformation back after a harddrive issue. R Stewart

I put by proken stick in a jiffy back and send it registered post. Thursday at email t 10am to say they had recieved my package. Thursday 1pm a phone call to say that they had re covered all my data and noe of it was corrupted. My new data stich was with me by 12pm on Friday. I first class service by wonderful people who clearly wanted to do all they could to help - ASndy even emailed methe file I most neede so I could continue to work on it. A thank you to all at R3 for their dedication and care seems some how inadequate but that''s all I can do. It goes without saying that I will be more than happy recommend them and indeed a colleauge has already asked me for details

When my laptop stopped working all of a sudden, i was devastated. I was working on my PhD thesis and i thought i lost this with all the precious photos of my two babies. My fear was confirmed when a local IT guy said he cannot retrive any of my data from the hard drive. That's when i started looking for data retrival companies on the interent. I wasn't sure whom to go to, especially if you do not know much about computers or HDD. But i am most ecstatic today to say that i have made the right choice. R3 Data recovery has managed to recover all my precious data and pics. They have been very professional and extremely helpful. They really understood how important the data was for me and updated me as and when they made progress on the recovery.They really care for the customers and i would happily recommend them to anyone. Many thanks to everyone at R3 Data Recovery once again..You guys have been brilliant.

Called in desperation when i thought i had lost my whole hard drive. Received free advice over the phone on how to solve the problem (buying a docking port for my hard drive and attaching it to another computer like a giant USB to access my files). Total cost to me £30 (for the docking port). Some other company wanted to charge a £50 call out fee before they would even help me. Not these guys. They just gave professional advice when it was needed. Awesome service in this day and age. Totally in their debt, and i learned something about fixing my computer myself!

External 500Gb HDD recovery

Service

Quality

Firstly, I truly thought all my data was lost (work and private). But, I would like to thank your company and Andy Butler for the excellent service you gave me for the data recovery from my corrupted NESO (HITACHI) External 500Gb HDD in terms of: • The speed of action • Going over and above what is expected in terms of customer service • Ensuring that I received the software the same day even that the server had experienced some technical difficulties! Having reviewed the data that I saved from my drive, I found all of the data in there that would have been lost forever. I can only all heartedly recommend your services to everybody after what I have experienced. It is re-assuring to know that there are still companies and people out there that take their work seriously and are prepared to help other people in their hour of need! Once again a MASSIVE thank you for all your help, without you I would have been in deep trouble with work and would have lost lots of very valuable and irreplaceable memories forever!

ABC Data Recovery did a FREE diagnostic check on my solid-state drive. Within less than five minutes the man returned and explained the problem to a technical level that I understood. They also explained the different solutions to fix my drive and why each solution cost as much as it did. Furthermore, understanding that I was a student they explained what steps I should take next if they were in my shoes. All in all I was very very pleased with their customer service that truly was exceptional.

The service that I received from ABC Data Recovery simply cannot be faulted. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who has, like me, been unlucky enough to find themselves with a broken hard drive. The hard drive came from a friend. She runs a charity that works with young people that have been out of education for a long time. She gets them interested in the creative arts, which builds their confidence and helps them re-enter formal education. Many of the kids have been out of education for a long time and can't read or write, so the charity also teaches basic skills such as reading, writing, numeracy and I.T. For the last four years, photos and videos made by the young people were stored on a 1TB hard drive. And then one day, it simply wouldn%u2019t turn on. This was a disaster, because there were no other copies of files! I heard about ABC Data Recovery and thought that I would see if they could help. ABC Data Recovery have been absolutely fantastic through the whole process of recovering the files from the hard drive. They very clearly explained the probable cause of the problem and provided me with all the information that I needed. I posted the hard drive to them and received an email receipt the very next day. Later on that same day, I received a call from one of ABC Data Recovery%u2019s engineers. He%u2019d fixed the drive and all of the images and videos were fine! I sent off another hard drive onto which they could copy the files. The entire process, from posting off the first drive to receiving my files back took one week! ABC Data Recovery were professional and fast throughout the recovery of my data. I was constantly kept up to date with their progress and their staff were helpful and friendly. What%u2019s more, the price was fantastic and far more affordable than other data recovery organisations I had contacted. Of course, the best thing is that four years of work has now been returned to my friend and her charity. Thank you, ABC Data Recovery!

I recently had to use Andy's data recovery services. One morning I came back to my computer to find it had locked up, and wouldn't boot up into OSX again. The hard drive was spinning up, but couldn't be recognised by the BIOS, indicating it was more than a than a basic logical fault. This was a 1TB drive which contained a *lot* of important data - I had backups, but they were out of date! I got in touch with R3 Data Recovery, who were also based in Sheffield, and explained the situation. Someone came to collect the drive that day, and Andy gave me a call back with a diagnosis a couple of hours later. Unfortunately my worst fears were confirmed, and the drive heads needed replacing. Thankfully R3 were able to source the exact replacement parts needed, fit them using their clean room, and recover all the data before sending me 3 CSV documents containing the file list of each partition. Checking these over, everything seemed perfectly in order - it was obviously a great relief to see those contents again! After sending payment, I received a brand new external 2TB drive containing folders for each partition with all the data intact, saving me months of work! So I can definitely recommend the services of Andy and his team, they have the resources and know-how to get you out of a tight situation!

Hi there, This is Jane Hooy and I called R3 data recovery panicking thinking that all my files are corrupted and my homework (video files) are all gone! thank goodness that I met a very professional IT technician who patiently guided me and helped me step by step to solve my problems. Now I finally got my files and I am very relieve and thankful. Thank you!

i found R3 data to be extremely helpful and that they went the extra mile when my daughter in law needed files from a broken usb stick to be urgently recovered,i would definately recommend them to others

The team at R3 really know their onions and after speaking to them you feel like your data is in safe hands! I've only used them a couple of times and fingers crossed won't need to for a while but there is no doubt where my next broken hard drive will be going!

We had hard drives with data that needed recovery. There are many data companies out there, what I can say, is having tried various 'others' over the years, we would only use R3 Data Recovery Ltd. When others have failed to recover anything, R3 Data found everything we needed and ensured it was recoverable. In these matters, it's not about the price. Professional Quality Counts.

From my first phone call to delivery the whole process was polite, informative and fast. The highest compliment I can give is that I would recommend R3 without hesitation.

We were in the middle of an intense mobile commitment when the hard drive on a Mac died. As part of the ensuing panic on discovering essential material had not fully backed up (Lesson, I know) i happened on R3 via Google. Subsequent call, over a weekend provided reassurance, support and direction, followed by a detour by Andy to pick up the dead drive from my house. Service thereafter was calm, professional and rapid, with excellent feedback and advice which saved us money. Overall, R3 displayed a genuine talent for reducing a crisis to a drama. We now have all the essential information back. I wholeheartedly recommend R3.

Richard Merrick - Eatonbank Ltd


You were clear, helpful and efficient, listened carefully and explained fully. I am really pleased with your service and mightily relieved to recover documents and photos I thought might be lost forever. I would use you again (though I hope it will never be necessary!)

Penelope Bentley


This is the first time I've ever had to call on anyone for data recovery and from the start R3 Data Recovery were amazing. At 8.30pm minutes after filling out an online info request form I received a call and was able to discuss my drive's problem with a well informed and proficient engineer. The service which followed was quick, efficient, friendly and professional and although I hope I'd never have cause to use them again I wouldn't hesitate to do so should the need arise!

I've resorted to R3 Data Recover Ltd's services in a critical emergency situation: I had accidentally and fatally dropped my external hard drive in water, which stored 20 year's worth of my best graphic design academic and professional portfolio, in risk of being irreparably lost. R3 staff's professional/conscientious advice and service handled the necessary technical repair procedures in a promptly, swift manner, and ensured the full recuperation of my precious data, very rapidly and at an affordable cost. Thus I don't hesitate to highly recommend them to anyone who experiences unfortunate circumstances like mine, and needs peace of mind, for they can be sure their data will be retrieved safely from reliable and trustworthy experts.
