Cannot read files? Don't panic.

Turn off the computer and call us. We can recover even from a just formatted USB stick, flash card or a USB backup drive. But opening a program or restarting the computer writes data to the disk, and your data could be overwritten and lost forever.

You do reduce the chances of data recovery to zero if you try to read from a faulty disk repeatedly. When you insert a disk to a PC or Mac, the computer starts to read and write data immediately even without you clicking on the disk. A computer used for data recovery must be set to access the disk in reading mode only. The complexity of this operation is beyond the average computer user.

Do not use data recovery programs randomly found on the internet, particularly downloaded for free! Some of them are bogus or even infected with malware.
