Dell Data Recovery

Losing data is stressful. We know all too well that from family photos to financial documents, the data you keep on your PC is often irreplaceable. And unfortunately, losing that data is all too easy. You might accidentally delete a file or folder you need. Your PC could start having trouble starting up and you might lose data after doing a system restore. Or the hard drive in your PC could break, showing you a Dell PSA 0141 or 0142 error when you try to troubleshoot your computer. When these things happen, it might feel like the end of the line for your data. But there is still hope. Gillware Data Recovery has a special partnership with Dell, providing affordable, world-class data recovery services to Dell customers. The Dell data recovery experts at Gillware can help you retrieve your data.

Dell Data Recovery Services

There are two general categories of data loss—physical and logical data loss. All of your data lives on the hard disk drive inside your computer. The hard drive stores your data on extremely sensitive spinning disks. Damage to the hard drive’s internal components, whether due to an accident or general wear and tear, causes the device to break down and its data to become inaccessible. This is physical data loss.

Data loss can also happen when the logical structure of the hard drive breaks down. In these situations, the drive “forgets” how to find the data. This “logical” data loss is what happens when you accidentally delete data from or reformat a hard drive, or when a hard drive’s filesystem becomes corrupted and the drive becomes inaccessible.

When these data loss situations happen, it’s best to leave data recovery to the professionals. Software data recovery tools can occasionally help you recover data in logical data loss situations. But using data recovery software improperly can also decrease your chances of a successful recovery. Many software tools are also not designed well enough to successfully recover data when there has been severe damage to the drive’s logical structure.

When your hard drive is physically damaged, only data recovery professionals can safely salvage your data. Damaged hard drives may require repairs to get them up and running again. These procedures can only be done in dust- and contaminant-free cleanroom environments by highly-trained experts to prevent further damage and irreversible data loss.

World-Class Data Recovery Professionals, Tools, and Techniques

In Gillware’s data recovery lab, world-class professionals use industry leading tools and techniques to recover your data. Our data recovery experts have years and thousands of hours of combined experience. In total, our experts have thousands of successful data recovery cases under their collective belts.

ISO 5 Class 100 Clean Room

Gillware conducts hard drive data recovery in a ISO 5 Class 100 Clean Room. When a hard drive is disassembled it is absolutely essential that the environment is devoid of particles and dust.

Gillware also operates under stringent security measures to ensure your data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Gillware maintains strict adherence to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) System and Organization Controls 2 Type II.

Gillware Cleanroom
The engineers in Gillware’s cleanroom operate on models from all hard drive manufacturers.

With help from our fault-tolerant disk imaging and analysis tools, our skilled data recovery engineers and technicians can recover data from just about any data loss situation, whether the damage is physical or logical. Fault-tolerant imaging helps our technicians salvage data from hard drives that have trouble performing or have been repaired. Our powerful data analysis tools assist our technicians in recovering data after accidental reformats, file deletion, or filesystem corruption. These data recovery software and hardware tools are 100% proprietary and can’t be found anywhere outside our data recovery lab.

When your hard drive’s internal components break down, it can put your data at risk. A hard drive making a scraping, clicking, or grinding noise when you turn it on may be scratching the delicate hard disk platters containing all of your data. While excessive scratches do make data recovery impossible, many other data recovery labs will see even slight platter scratches and give up. These scratches kick up dust, which embeds itself in the platter surfaces and is very hard to remove. However, with Gillware’s special burnishing tools, our engineers can remove large amounts of debris from platter surfaces. We can salvage data from scratched hard disk platters, even when other data recovery labs cannot.

Secure Data Recovery Facilities

Gillware’s data recovery facilities are held to high standards of data security. We are rigorously audited for SOC 2 Type II compliance. From the day your failed hard drive arrives in our lab to the days after your recovered data returns to you, we keep your information safe. None of your data leaves our doors unless it’s on its way back to you. We place your recovered data on a secure, password-protected Western Digital hard drive. This ensures that no one can intercept your data after it ships out. We wipe our customers’ data completely from our system after they have received their data and had a chance to confirm that everything works as expected.

Special Pricing for Dell Data Recovery Clients

Gillware’s services for Dell data recovery clients are both affordable and financially risk-free. We charge no upfront fees for our evaluation of your data recovery needs, or for our data recovery efforts. With our “no data, no charge” policy, we don’t charge you for our efforts until we’ve successfully recovered your important data. Our clients can safely and easily verify the results of our recovery efforts upon request. We can show you the results of our efforts using our secure data recovery customer portal.

To make our services truly financially risk-free, we even cover the cost of shipping your hard drive to us. We can provide a prepaid UPS shipping label or a prepaid shipping box with all the materials you need to safely package your hard drive for transport.
