"As a small business in food services our knowledge of computer IT is limited. After a weekend power outage and crash of our main office PC, we weren't in a position to negotiate and for time sake ended up going with the first company we found online. A partial recovery and quoted job cost much higher than was agreed to led us to Core Data. They salvaged our hard drive, completed the job and most importantly, they understood our budget.
Very Relieved – Kerry S. in Saskatoon."

WOW! The system that CDR has in place really brings me to tears (tears of joy! that is--the data loss was tears of an entirely different nature). At each part of the process, I can tell that you have documentation, notes, and identifiable steps that allow me to be "in the loop". I must say I don't get the same thing from the previous recovery services we've been forced to try. Vacation pic's saved!!

"I was worried that critical year end business files were gone forever! In fact I was told by another company that it wasn't likely they could recover them within my budget. Core Data not only recovered my hard drive they responded quickly and with amazing service. Very little down time. CDR saved my company(and our clients) time and money. Thank you, Katherine R."

"I wanted to let you know that the dust has settled and that the service provided by your group was very much appreciated. It was having someone to speak with that really knew their stuff! One of the best attributes during our business relationship was the feeling that you were not trying to oversell your services. If anything, you were too modest with the skill sets of your team. I have to say that the results speak for themselves." Contact Us

"We didn't think this could happen to us. Not only had we lost our current project work but also our digital catalogue system - gone, with no backup. Core Data assessed the situation quickly and through all the chaos, got our data back.
They even dealt with the hard drive manufacturer assisting with the warranty on our damaged hard drives. Professional and very conscientious. Went above and beyond, doing more than we ever expected, thank you! D. & S. Williamson" Contact Us
"Just a quick email to let you guys know that you saved our year end, not to mention client project co-ordinates and other company info we didn't know we needed until it was gone. Great to know that you folks are based out west! Every other facility we contacted was either out East or down in the United States. Core Data dealt with us by phone, one-on-one and explained everything. – All the Best & thanks again! Peter, PP&L."Contact Us

"Regards from Sanders family. Emergencies can happen anywhere! Summer vacation to Canada could have ended horribly. Our camera and memory card were damaged by a day at the beach 3 days before we were due to return home. We were in Quebec at the time when my wife contacted Core Data. They knew right what to do – data recovered and their direct download service meant our pic's were back in our hands inside of 2 days. Cheers! Ross, Amie, Ella & Ashton" Contact Us

Dropped, Damaged External Hard Drives
External drives are frequently knocked off desks and tables, when the drives are powered up clients often report a ticking or clicking sound from the drive. The clicking you hear is caused when the drive repeatedly attempts to calibrate and fails.

Andriod and Apple SmartPhone Recovery Services (iPhone, iPod, Galaxy, Note)
Due to high demand CDR is now providing a new powerful hardware based SmartPhone and Tablet recovery service for Android and Apple devices. Using new direct memory access technolgy developed by CDR our process effectivy elimiates the problem of memory access on handheld devices. We recover deleted Texts (SMS), contacts, photos, videos, music, documents from the device memory or micro SD cards. We do not require the device to be functional in order to recover data.
RAID Recovery Services (NAS, SAN, IBM, HP, DROBO)
Many of our customers suffer problems with RAID arrays when one drive fails leaving the system in a degraded state, still functional but not “redundant”. Additional minor issues (like 1 bad block) can lead to a fully degraded state. After a reboot the controller may be able to mount all drives again but the data won’t be 100% integral (in good condition). You will often see some damaged files or lost databases entries etc.
Any rebuild or initialization process of an array in a degraded state can potentially destroy data, chances are that other disks are also functioning in a degraded state with a high degree of compelte failure when they are taxed during a rebuild process. Initiating a rebuild in this state is not reccomend. Imaging the functional disks and performing a manual rebuild is safest way to ensure the integrity of your data.
