Hard drive data recovery for all makes, models and brands

Hard disk drives (HDD) store all of our critical business and personal files, from account records and contracts to digital photos of loved ones. Although the content on the failed hard disk drive(s) may differ greatly, the sense of shock and despair can be frighteningly similar. Fortunately, Kroll Ontrack has been pioneering HDD data recovery methods for nearly 30 years.

Hard drive recovery tip:

To ensure the most successful hard drive recovery, turn off your computer or storage device to minimise further damage.

We recover data from all types of storage devices

Kroll Ontrack can recover files from any brand, model or make of hard drive. Our Ontrack HDD Data Recovery services are recognised by major hard drive manufacturers and we are authorised by Western Digital, Fujitsu, Hitachi, Samsung and Toshiba to unseal hard disk drives for recovery without voiding the manufacturer’s warranty.


We recover from all types of data loss

Our engineers classify hard drive data loss in two categories:

Logical Failure: The hard drive is in working order but some files or data cannot be accessed for reasons such as a lost partition, accidental reformatting, viruses, corrupt files, damaged files or accidental deletion of files.

Mechanical Failure: The hard drive is not functioning; the device is not turning on or it is not being read correctly. The most common causes are head crashes and motor failures. These failures are often characterised by strange grinding, scratching or clicking noises coming from the device.
