What Others Say About Us


  • Recovery was carried out very efficiently for me and urgent data sent to me via "Dropbox" so I could access it immediately. Price was a little dearer than originally quoted though because of damage to disc heads requiring replacements.

    David Quinnell
  • A great service and the lowest all in price we were quoted. Highly satisfied with the service and speed of turnaround. Thank you R3

    Tony Woodward
  • Unfortunately they were unable to get the data I had foolishly lost. However, they never made false promises with regards to the chances of success and were professional and courteous throughout my dealings with them, and I would not hesitate to use again.

    Richard Jones - R H Jeffs & Rowe
  • When my laptop stopped working all of a sudden, i was devastated. I was working on my PhD thesis and i thought i lost this with all the precious photos of my two babies. My fear was confirmed when a local IT guy said he cannot retrive any of my data from the hard drive. That's when i started looking for data retrival companies on the interent. I wasn't sure whom to go to, especially if you do not know much about computers or HDD. But i am most ecstatic today to say that i have made the right choice. R3 Data recovery has managed to recover all my precious data and pics. They have been very professional and extremely helpful. They really understood how important the data was for me and updated me as and when they made progress on the recovery.They really care for the customers and i would happily recommend them to anyone. Many thanks to everyone at R3 Data Recovery once again..You guys have been brilliant.

    L Kottam - University of Sheffield
  • This is the first time I've ever had to call on anyone for data recovery and from the start R3 Data Recovery were amazing. At 8.30pm minutes after filling out an online info request form I received a call and was able to discuss my drive's problem with a well informed and proficient engineer. The service which followed was quick, efficient, friendly and professional and although I hope I'd never have cause to use them again I wouldn't hesitate to do so should the need arise!

What is Data Recovery?

When files have been mistakenly deleted and need to be recovered, data recovery is necessary. This is the act of retrieving deleted or erased files using one of several methods. One example is third-party software, which can be purchased and used to recover files. There are many software utilities that can perform data recovery successfully, ranging from £20 to £200, depending on how well the data is recovered.

There are also companies that will perform data recovery for a range of fees. Data recovery companies specialize in difficult cases of data recovery and when a software utility was not successful. These companies use more complex processes to retrieve deleted or erased data, processes that may not be used by third-party software. For example, a hard drive that has been in a fire may have to have its interface board or other parts replaced before data could be accessed.


What is a Data Recovery Process?

Data recovery is the process of restoring data that has been lost, accidentally deleted, corrupted or made inaccessible for any reason.

In enterprise information technology (IT), data recovery typically refers to the restoration of data to a desktop, laptop, server, or external storage system from a backup.

The data recovery process may vary, depending on the circumstances of the data loss, the data recovery software used to create the backup, and the backup target media. For example, many desktop and laptop backup software platforms allow end users to restore lost files themselves, while restoration of a corrupted database from a tape backup is a more complicated process that requires IT intervention. Data recovery can also be provided as service. Such services are typically used to retrieve important files that were not backed up and accidentally deleted from a computer’s file system but still remain on disk in fragments.

An organization’s disaster recovery plan should make known who in the organization is responsible for recovering data, provide a strategy for how data will be recovered and document acceptable recovery point and recovery time objectives.


What is a Hard Drive?

A hard drive is nothing more than a magnetised storage area. Your Operating System is stored on your hard drive, as well as all your software programmes, like Microsoft Word. The hard drive is actually a few circular disks stacked one on top of the other. A little arm moves over the disks and writes things to these circular platters, and reads them. When you save a file or create a new folder, think of these circular platters being written to and you’ll have a basic idea of just what your hard drive is.

A hard drive is given a letter of the alphabet for convenience sake, and in most computers this will be the letter C. That’s why the hard drive is popularly know as the C Drive. There are other drives on your computer. These are the usual drives on modern


What is RAID Recovery?

RAID (redundant array of independent disks, originally redundant array of inexpensive disks) is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a logical unit. Data is distributed across the drives in one of several ways called “RAID levels”, depending on the level of redundancy and performance required.

The term “RAID” was first defined by David Patterson, Garth A. Gibson, and Randy Katz at the University of California, Berkeley in 1987. Marketers representing industry RAID manufacturers later attempted to reinvent the term to describe a redundant array of independent disks as a means of disassociating a low-cost expectation from RAID technology.

RAID is now used as an umbrella term for computer data storage schemes that can divide and replicate data among multiple physical drives: RAID is an example of storage virtualization and the array can be accessed by the operating system as one single drive. The different schemes or architectures are named by the word RAID followed by a number (e.g. RAID 0, RAID 1). Each scheme provides a different balance between the key goals: reliability and availability, performance and capacity. RAID levels greater than RAID 0 provide protection against unrecoverable (sector) read errors, as well as whole disk failure.


About Ashford

Ashford is a town in the borough of Ashford in Kent, England. In 2005 it was voted the fourth-best place to live in the United Kingdom.[2] It lies on the River Great Stour, the M20 motorway, and the South Eastern Main Line and High Speed 1 railways. Its agricultural market is one of the most important in the county. Ashford is a relatively common English placename: it goes back to Old English æscet, indicating a ford near a clump of ash-trees.

As a market town, Ashford has for centuries been a local communications hub for surrounding villages and has stood at the centre of five railway lines, (Ashford to Ramsgate (via Canterbury West) line, Swanley to Ashford (via Maidstone East) Line, South Eastern Main Line, Kent Coast Line and the Marshlink Line) since the 19th century. With the opening of the international passenger station it is now an important European communications centre, with new lines running between London and the Channel Tunnel (via High Speed 1).

The Borough of Ashford lies on the eastern edge of the ancient forest of “Andredsweald” or “Anderida”. This originally stretched as far west as Hampshire and formed the basis from which the Weald is formed.

It is likely that the town originates from an original settlement established in 893 AD by inhabitants escaping a Danish Viking raid on the nearby ancient village of Great Chart (Seleberhtes Cert in 762AD), although a Roman road passed through here from the iron making area to Canterbury. It is listed in the Domesday Book, compiled in 1086, as having a church, two mills and a value of 150 shillings (£7.50), under its original Saxon name of “Essetesford” (or “Eshetisford,” “Esselesford”, “Asshatisforde”, “Essheford”).[3] The manor was owned by Hugh de Montford, Constable of England at the time. Writer Philpot believed Essetesford stood for “ash trees growing near a ford”, while Lampard, a 16th century local historian, suggested that it meant “a ford over the River Eshe or Eshet”, which was the old name for the tributary of the River Stour between Lenham and Ashford.
