What sort of damage do you need help with?

What types of damage can cause data loss?

Water damage - When water comes into contact with your electronic device, it affects both the external electronics and the internal hardware. The water gets everywhere and can cause corrosion. There are different types of water damage – general water damage, flood damage, and saltwater damage.

Fire damage - Heat damage caused by fire can damage the devices external and internal electronics. The amount of damage will depend on the intensity of the heat. In addition to the heat damage, smoke can also get into the device’s hard drive, making the platters difficult to read.

Heat damage - Heat damage is often caused by fire, but it can also be caused by elements within the device overheating. Overheating can reduce the space between the read/write heads and platters and, if they come into contact with each other, data may be lost.

Lightning strikes and power surges - A power surge is a sudden spike of electrical current in your home or office. Although power surges don’t last long, they can cause significant damage and data loss.

Storm and floods - Flood and storm damage can be more severe than general water damage because the device is likely to have been submerged for longer and in different types of water.

Drops or physical damage - Dropping your device can cause major damage. Even if it doesn’t look as though the device is damaged from the outside, the internal damage can be significant and result in the loss of data.

Eagerness to access lost data leads many people to attempt to fix their devices themselves, or take them to general IT support providers rather than experienced data recovery experts. And, while you might think it’s ‘worth a try’ before you do anything more serious, these methods can cause more harm than good and may even lead to permanent data loss.

So, before you try putting your water damaged device into the freezer for a ‘quick fix’ or opening a device with physical damage up at home, give us a call – we’ll be more likely to get your data back if we’re starting from scratch.
