What Others Say About Us


  • You were clear, helpful and efficient, listened carefully and explained fully. I am really pleased with your service and mightily relieved to recover documents and photos I thought might be lost forever. I would use you again (though I hope it will never be necessary!)

    Penelope Bentley
  • We were in the middle of an intense mobile commitment when the hard drive on a Mac died. As part of the ensuing panic on discovering essential material had not fully backed up (Lesson, I know) i happened on R3 via Google. Subsequent call, over a weekend provided reassurance, support and direction, followed by a detour by Andy to pick up the dead drive from my house. Service thereafter was calm, professional and rapid, with excellent feedback and advice which saved us money. Overall, R3 displayed a genuine talent for reducing a crisis to a drama. We now have all the essential information back. I wholeheartedly recommend R3.

    Richard Merrick - Eatonbank Ltd
  • Andy Butler was incredibly knowledgable, helpful, swift and professional. He kept me uptodate with the recovery process and returned my data quickly. This service was extremely reasonable compared to other quotes I received. I would recommend this company to colleagues, friends and family.

    Rev Annie Kirke - Church of England, Diocese of London
  • I asked the team at R3 data recovery to help me with a total hard drive failure - others said it was unrecoverable - R3 got it back with a 24 hour turnaround. All complete and on a new drive and delivered to my door. Five star service from a five star company. Would never use anyone else for data recovery.

    John Collins
  • Firstly, I truly thought all my data was lost (work and private). But, I would like to thank your company and Andy Butler for the excellent service you gave me for the data recovery from my corrupted NESO (HITACHI) External 500Gb HDD in terms of:
    • The speed of action
    • Going over and above what is expected in terms of customer service
    • Ensuring that I received the software the same day even that the server had experienced some technical difficulties!
    Having reviewed the data that I saved from my drive, I found all of the data in there that would have been lost forever. I can only all heartedly recommend your services to everybody after what I have experienced. It is re-assuring to know that there are still companies and people out there that take their work seriously and are prepared to help other people in their hour of need! Once again a MASSIVE thank you for all your help, without you I would have been in deep trouble with work and would have lost lots of very valuable and irreplaceable memories forever!

How to Recover Data?

Imagine this: you’re busy working on your computer and need to access documents saved on your external hard drive. You connect it, get ready to find your data, and…nothing happens. Your hard drive isn’t working. Uh oh. Before you panic, there are several things you can try on your own before calling in the pros.

Data loss can be due to a number of factors, but two are the most common. The first (and easiest to resolve) is software related. You’ve accidentally deleted an important folder and emptied the recycle bin, or gone and formatted the wrong drive by mistake. The second—and probably most common—cause of data loss is a fault with the hard drive itself. Given the complexity of modern drives it’s no wonder that somewhere along the line something will go wrong. When the drive suffers from some form of failure there’s often little that you can do yourself to get the data back—professional data recovery services are usually required. However, there are certain failures that you can attempt to resolve yourself.

How Data Recovery Works?

You went to turn on your computer and all you heard was a clicking sound; Windows wouldn’t load, and your local computer guy or company tech dude tried everything on it, but couldn’t do anything for you.. He recommended that you call a data recovery company.

You’ve got no idea what you’re looking for, what the data recovery companies do, or anything like that. What now?

There’s a lot of confusion among computer users and even some computer professionals about what data recovery is and how it works; many people equate it as synonymous with computer repair (not the case) while others have misconceptions as to how recovery is performed. Here are some common questions and answers associated with data recovery.

So what is data recovery?

Data recovery is basically the retrieval of data from a logically or physically failed hard drives. If your hard drive fails, and you didn’t back anything up, you may need data recovery. If you did back up, this is why; now, you just load your information over from your backup and you’re golden. However, many people don’t practice proper backup procedures, hence the need for the data recovery industry.


What is data loss?

Data loss is an error condition in information systems in which information is destroyed by failures or neglect in storage, transmission, or processing. Information systems implement backup and disaster recovery equipment and processes to prevent data loss or restore lost data.

Data loss is distinguished from data unavailability, which may arise from a network outage. Although the two have substantially similar consequences for users, data unavailability is temporary, while data loss may be permanent. Data loss is also distinct from data spill, although the term data loss has been used in those incidents.[citation needed] Data loss incidents can be also data spill incidents, such as in the case of media containing sensitive information being lost and subsequently acquired by another party. However, data spills are possible without the data being lost in the originating side.


What is a disaster recovery plan - DRP?

Short for disaster recovery plan, DRP is a plan for business continuity in the event of a disaster that destroys part or all of a business’s resources, including IT equipment, data records and the physical space of an organization.

The goal of a DRP is to resume normal computing capabilities in as little time as possible. A typical DRP has several stages, including the following:

  • Understanding an organization’s activities and how all of its resources are interconnected.
  • Assessing an organization’s vulnerability in all areas, including operating procedures, physical space and equipment, data integrity and contingency planning.
  • Understanding how all levels of the organization would be affected in the event of a disaster.
  • Developing a short-term recovery plan.
  • Developing a long-term recovery plan, including how to return to normal business operations and prioritizing the order of functions that are resumed.
  • Testing and consistently maintaining and updating the plan as the business changes.


About Perth

Perth is the capital and largest city of the Australian state of Western Australia. It is the fourth most populous city in Australia, with an estimated population of 1.9 million living in Greater Perth.[8] Part of the South West Land Division of Western Australia, the majority of the metropolitan area of Perth is located on the Swan Coastal Plain, a narrow strip between the Indian Ocean and the Darling Scarp, a low coastal escarpment. The first areas settled were on the Swan River, with the city’s central business district and port (Fremantle) both located on its shores. Perth is formally divided into a number of local government areas, which themselves consist of a large number of suburbs, extending from Two Rocks in the north to Rockingham in the south, and east inland to The Lakes.

Perth was originally founded by Captain James Stirling in 1829 as the administrative centre of the Swan River Colony, and gained city status in 1856 (currently vested in the smaller City of Perth). The city is named for Perth, Scotland, by influence of Sir George Murray, then British Secretary of State for War and the Colonies. The city’s population increased substantially as a result of the Western Australian gold rushes in the late 19th century, largely as a result of emigration from the eastern colonies of Australia. During Australia’s involvement in World War II, Fremantle served as a base for submarines operating in the Pacific Theatre. An influx of immigrants following the conclusion of the war was followed by a surge in economic activity as a result of several mining booms in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, with Perth becoming the regional headquarters for a number of mining operations located around the state.

As part of Perth’s role as the capital of Western Australia, the state’s Parliament and Supreme Court are located within the city, as well as Government House, the residence of the Governor of Western Australia. Perth became known worldwide as the “City of Light” when city residents lit their house lights and streetlights as American astronaut John Glenn passed overhead while orbiting the earth on Friendship 7 in 1962.[9][10] The city repeated the act as Glenn passed overhead on the Space Shuttle in 1998.[11][12] Perth came 9th in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s August 2012 list of the world’s most liveable cities,[13] and was classified by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network in 2010 as a world city.[14]
