The Gillware Difference!

We can achieve this multi-discipline data recovery process because of our custom-designed data recovery techniques that have been created in-house. Gillware Data Scientists and R&D teams have created specialist tools that are exclusive to Gillware like our Glide Burnish Machine that scans the surface of disk platters looking for faults and damage. The tool can then repair the platter to a 100% working state.

Other proprietary tools used by Gillware include Hombre, which is our in-house data recovery software that not only speeds up the data recovery process but can also build images from damaged complex data, even if it’s missing data blocks! Hombre excels at intelligently rebuilding client data into a useable format. In possibly the most difficult client recovery we have undertaken, Hombre was key to getting the client data back.
