Data Recovery Services Near Me

Have you ever searched for “data recovery services near me” or “data recovery from a damaged hard drive” in a search engine?  If the answer is yes, then you have no doubt seen all the ads for data recovery free and tons of other potentially malicious software.  Don’t be fooled by these fake data recovery experts!  It is dangerous to download so-called free software.  Leave it to the real professionals to help you get your computer data recovery Colorado Springs.  Many of these programs can add viruses to your computer, under the guise of recovering files.  Most importantly, even the “legitimate” ones are for personal use and rarely recover what you intend to.  These programs can be limited to a simple deletion of 1 file, not an entire system.  They also don’t recover programs or data loss due to failing drives or updates gone wrong.  Many of them will not recover from google drive or other cloud-based data losses.  In other words, most of these software’s will not be useful and may cause more harm than good.  At DML, we see it all the time, a software the promised to deliver “all data deleted” but instead it recovered a small amount and then saved it back to the original device.  When you recover data, you should never ever save it on the original device.  In fact, this can cause your original missing data to be overwritten and become “fragmented” or incomplete.

Local Data Recovery Services

 We are local but what does this mean for you? This means that in 90% of cases we can perform an external hard drive file recovery in our shop.  Typically, a data recovery from a damaged hard drive needs to be sent to a company in the hope that it can be repaired.  Once repaired, the hard drive data can be removed easily and transferred to a new device.  Unfortunately, not all data recovery shops are able to perform this repair, such as the click of death.  Even less shops collaborate with another business that has a clean room to perform the repair.  At DML, we believe that each data recovery company should work with others for our clients and our own success.  For that reason, we are the leader in data recovery services in Colorado Springs.

Hard Drive Recovery FAQs

What is data recovery and when are services needed?

Data recovery refers to a data storage device that no longer has accessible data to the user.  This situation typically refers to computers, but other devices can also require such services.  For example, USB drives or thumb drives can malfunction and require file recovery.  When the user is not able to retrieve their data from a device, data recovery services are needed.    There are many reasons for data to become inaccessible such as a broken external hard drive, crash hard drive, corrupt hard drive or simply a broken computer.  In the worst cases, a broken flash drive needs repair, clicking hard drive needs to be fixed, or a broken external hard drive is a total loss.

What options do I have for data recovery services near me?

Legitimate local services are extremely difficult to find in our area.  This is mainly because many companies purchase cheap software online and this is their primary source of file recovery.  Sadly, this leaves you with missing files, corrupt files, or incomplete data recoveries.  Did I mention that their services are non-refundable?  At DML we give you the opportunity to verify your data before payment is accepted.  If we don’t recover your data, then you don’t pay us.  To clarify, if you decline the data recovery services, your original device is returned to you and the data is destroyed.

 The best way to find a data expert is to ask around, most local computer shops know who the most reliable company is.  Even if you need to call 100 shops, most of them will have similar recommendations.  You can also search for external hard drive recovery near me on google and get a list to research.  You are looking for a company that has a good reputation in the field among other shops and has acceptable reviews.  Always read the reviews, especially the negative ones, they can often tell you more than 100 positive reviews.  Once you get yourself a good list of 3-5 shops, call them, visit them and request quotes.  Remember, when it comes to your precious data, cheap data recovery services are not better.

There are many data recovery services near me claiming to be the best data recovery services in Colorado Springs, but how can I confirm this?

Unfortunately, there is no reputable website with a list of the best card recovery, the best hard drive data recovery, or the best USB data recovery companies.  Many of the lists that you find online are actually paid for by the businesses on the list.  Equally important is the fact that there are as many legitimate businesses as there are illegitimate.  Never purchase data services on the internet or from an individual person.  The first thing to remember is that your data is irreplaceable and sensitive.  In other words, if somebody were to accidentally delete your data, you may have a larger problem on your hands.  Your data may actually be unrecoverable if an advanced data deletion is performed, many times this happens with inexperience. Furthermore, it is sensitive information, and you certainly don’t want someone selling your information on the black market.  Yes, this happens, and it happens frequently, protect yourself to avoid becoming the next victim.  In most cases, you would never know that your data has been sold, until it is too late. I recommend thoroughly researching each data recovery company before conducting business with them.  This research can be in the form of a phone call, a visit, or calling local computer repair shops to ask them.  It could also be a combination of all the recommendations listed previously.

Do you perform apple data recovery? I need an apple MacBook data recovery.

There are not many places in town that actually perform apple computer data recovery.  Many Apple computers require special hard drive recovery equipment for file recovery.  At DML we can recover from most Apple computers and in many cases even from MacBook.  Some Apple laptops have specialized hard drives that require a very specific piece of equipment, which we do not possess. In this case, we would need to open the laptop and verify the type of hard drive before providing an estimate.  This is a simple procedure, but requires an Apple certified tech, which means that it could take up to 24 hours to simply verify the hard drive.  Please be sure to ask the data expert if you can expect a delay in diagnosis.

What makes DML a superior choice for file recovery?

DML is certainly not the only choice for hard drive recovery, but it is the best.  We use the latest commercial software, specifically designed to get all your data back.  We don’t take shortcuts when it comes to those precious moments captured on camera or that important document for work.  We also have the latest data recovery hardware, for the most stubborn data retrievals.  Even with all this, in the unlikely event that we are unable to recover, we find you company that can.  It doesn’t get much better than that.  Service guaranteed.  As a bonus, we also give priority to students and computers used for business, since your need can be more urgent.  All you need to do to get this free priority service, is tell the data expert that the device is for school or work.

Do you perform data recovery for windows?

Windows recovery is one of the most common, and least expensive forms of hard drive recovery.  Sometimes there is a corruption in Windows 10 or an update in Windows 11 that went badly.  In most cases we can recover the data structure and reinstall the operating system.  In other cases, we can make a copy of the entire system and files (just as they were originally).  If there is a hardware problem, we may be unable to reinstall the system, but file recovery is still possible.  At this point you would be offered a hardware repair to completely recover windows and the data.

Does Do-It-Yourself data recovery software work?

Unless you have some serious geek skills we recommend you bring your hard drive in for a free diagnostic so an expert can assess the nature of the hard drive failure.
