Can’t access Toshiba external hard drive
I have an external USB hard drive (Toshiba) which my computer can no longer access. I have tried other computers which have the same issue and tried a new cable; it is recognised as a hard drive but can’t be accessed and is very slow to load. I have downloaded recovery software but the software won’t start while the hard drive is connected. The same issue occurs with some other software. Is this something you may be able to fix and how much would it be? I am based in Croydon and can come into your London data recovery clinic.
Samsung Galaxy not powering up
My daughter has a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (so it’s quite old), and can no longer be powered up. It is not the battery or the charging port that is faulty, and I have been told (and I don’t understand the technicalities) that something controlling the power supply on the Motherboard has failed, and that a replacement part is no longer available. A friend recommended a data recovery clinic in Northampton – is it possible to call in with my phone?
Is it possible to recover data such as photos, contacts, texts etc from the device, and if so, what would be the cost?
Would I be able to send the device to you?
Opensuse data recovery
My laptop has two OS (windows and ubuntu 14.04); it has been running fine for more than 10 months. Till I tried creating a bootable usb (openSuse) to install it on my second laptop. But, then I safely turned off my laptop, then shortly I turned it on again (I forgot the usb plugged in), the welcome screen for opensuse appeared. I rebooted again, pressed f9 couldn’t find a choice other than (boot from EFI, boot from hard disk). Tried both choices, didn’t go anywhere. Still the openSuse welcome screen.
Then, I took the laptop to a technician in London he removed the hard disk from the laptop and mounted it in his desktop. The partition table was unallocated. He removed 4.3GB (I assumed its the linux system) and the windows partition was recovered. But, my main goal was to recover the project folder in the linux partition (in this path /home/mogo/Documents/Project).
The following day, a security engineer tried testdisk and photorec. Test disk was able to view the project directory and I saw my files there. Here comes a problem, when he tried copying the files to my passport hdd (western digital) most of my important data in the project directory failed the copying process. That engineer couldn’t help me further and he suggested that I do it myself. So I tried further attempts on my own and couldn’t do more than what he did.
Please, I would like to know if you will be able to retrieve that specific directory and how much does this usually cost?
That all happened during my vacation in the United Arab Emirates. I’ll be back in the UK on the 5th of September. My laptop is hp g6-2295sa and the hard disk is 1000Tb SATA Samsung.
Get the Pictures of old iPhone
I have a couple of old iphones that I would like the pictures off of. I’m not sure which phone they are on out of the two but it was a really special holiday and I can’t get the phones to switch on at all. I know the photos are on the phone and not on the cloud. I would really love to get those photos saved and stored securely. The holiday was in 2011, so that’s a frame of reference for how old the phone is.
