Where is your email stored?
Some software, like Microsoft Outlook, stores email on hardware. We can successfully recover email from hardware, even if it has stopped functioning.
Web-based email applications (e.g. Gmail, Outlook.com, Yahoo, etc.), store emails in the cloud. If you have taken the additional step to back up your email to hardware, we can help you recover it.

This table shows the most common email application types and where the email content is stored.

I can not praise these guys enough
I can not praise these guys enough, we originally took our server to a local company who only got 16GB of 400GB of lost data back and that was only PDFs and JPEGs. Sent it to Ontrack as a last ditch attempt and they got back every single file and folder in complete order and in less time than the other company. Customer service was excellent. If you ever have a problem of lost data just go to Ontrack and don't waste any time or money with other people. 100% satisfied, excellent company.Craig Fozard , Paramount Projects UK Ltd.
I was impressed at the speed of your work and the results
Thanks to those at Ontrack, all of my Masters work has been recovered. Words can not express my gratitude! The data itself has been retrieved with all the correct titles, date created info etc. I was impressed at the speed of your work and the results. Also, the people I have communicated with have been very professional and there has been total clarity at each stage. I would definitely recommend your services.Alicia Booth , University of Westminster
Ontrack provided a great service
I was recommended Ontrack by Apple, my computer had water on it and was completely broken, I had to rescue what data I could. I was panicked. Ontrack provided a great service. Mike was very patient with all my questions. And I got almost 100% of my data back. I'd definitely recommend Mike & Ontrack.Rosie Greatrex , Home user
