Data recovery from optical discs

Saving data from CDs, DVDs, and floppy disks is done using special software that efficiently saves data from such media. Production and capacity standards, as well as the long-term presence of this type of media, represent a facilitating circumstance for saving data. The media in question are portable and the problems with them are mostly mechanical in nature.

Damage to the surface of the media makes it impossible for the reader to read the data correctly. The computer issues a command to read the damaged sector again, but if the damage is such that the data cannot be read, the faulty media blocks the computer. Problems that can occur with this type of media include deleted or overwritten data, incomplete disc-burning sessions, and bad sectors on floppy disks…

Data destruction

Permanent deletion of data is possible to achieve in two ways:

  • By writing the new data over the existing locations (which isn’t possible when the disk is damaged)
  • By demagnetization

Demagnetization is the process of data deletion using a strong magnetic field and it is used when it’s necessary to destroy the data irreversibly. It is particularily convenient when used on damaged hard drives on which it is impossible to access the data to delete it.

HelpDisc uses ‘‘Degauser” to wipe data on all modern devices for storing digital data on a computer that operate using magnetic media: hard disk drives of any size (ATA, SATA, SAS, SCSI drives size 1.8 “, 2.5”, 3.5 “), magnetic tapes (LTA, DLT)…

Emergency start

Emergency start is a service where the diagnosis is accessed immediately after receiving the media during working hours. The service Hitan start is charged additionally to the price of saving data according to our price list.

Usually, the client finds out the type of failure and the salvage price on the same day, except in cases where the media was received too late for a diagnosis to be made on the same day, during working hours.
