  • What is Data Recovery Hardware

Data recovery is the art of restoring lost or corrupted files from a hard drive or other form of digital media. While there a countless number of software-based solutions that promise to do everything from restoring lost files to freeing up disk space, and while some of them do a better job than others, there are comparatively few hardware options available for the average computer user.

The 3 Data Recovery Phases
Often referred to as 3D, most data recovery jobs follow a specific order. The first phase, drive restoration, covers the initial diagnosis and repair. Disk imaging, the second phase, involves creating a duplicate of the data on the affected disk, and phase three, data retrieval, covers the actual processes of extracting data and verifying file integrity.

While these steps can be performed, at least in part, with various software solutions, some extreme cases do require a hardware-based approach.

Data Recovery Hardware
There are very few instantly recognizable names in the niche of data recovery hardware, but DeepSpar remains at the top of the list. Not only do they offer their own proprietary hardware, but they carry products from other top manufacturers in the industry. Some of their products include:

  • DeepSpar Operations Server: A customizable virtual communication management system that supports data recovery and analysis.
  • DeepSpar Disk Imager 4: This device provides disk imaging, drive diagnostics, and more. It also provides visual interactive feedback to aid the data recovery process.
  • DeepSpar SAS Imager: A combination of hardware and software, this product is meant for working with unstable or degraded SAS hard drives.

As mentioned, DeepSpar offers a few data recovery products from other manufacturers via their website. These include:

  • ACE Laboratory PC-3000: Diagnose and resolve mechanical drive failures with the PC-3000 for Windows UMDA-e.
  • ACE Laboratory PC-3000 Flash: Interface directly with NAND chips to read data and recover it to a usable media.

Head Stack Removal
Depending on the nature of the recovery job, you might need to inspect, remove, and replace the head stack assembly. This is especially true when working with traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) that have been dropped or knocked over.

This type of recovery job requires highly specialized tools, a keen eye for detail, and extreme precision. There are many tools that are helpful, including microscopes for a better view of miniscule parts, tools for removing stuck heads, spindle replacement tools, and tools for working with the drive motor itself.

Because this is such a sensitive operation, a head stack removal, repair, or replacement should only be completed by an experienced professional.

Clean Room Operations
Most professional operations perform all their drive assembly, disassembly, and diagnosis within the safe environment of a clean room. While this isn't always a viable option, especially if you're working with a drive in your own home, portable laminar flow workstations make an excellent substitute. These devices give you all of the benefits of working inside of a clean room with virtually none of the space requirements, so you can work on a hard drive or other sensitive equipment nearly anywhere.

I really love your R-Studio product, I am doing Data Recovery as a professional, I used RS since the early versions and I loved the product, as far as I can tell, R-Studio, especially the Tech Version (but including the standard) is one of the best and excellent tools for a pro to have in the arsenal of tools in a pro DR lab, especially combining with the specialized Data Recovery hardware providers like DeepSpar, and PC3000, the rest of `wannabees` out there are waste of time, strongly recommend
I lost more than 200K files from my NAS due to a mistake. I tried 3 different recovery solutions over the 4 TB raid disks, and all of them performed ok but to be honest none of them were able to Raw recover the files and rename them with meaningful names out of the Metadata like R-TT did, then I was able to sort again my files and pictures and kind of restore all of them.

R-TT may not be the easiest or most user-friendly solution, but the algorithm used for the renaming saved me THOUSAND of hours of opening ...
Just recovered my old ext4 partition with R-Studio after trying testdisk and R-Linux without success. That partition was overwritten by another ext4 partition and I was losing my hope until I tried R-Studio demo. It detected all my files and directories again!

Bought it and 100% recommend it for anyone with a similar issue.
Genuinely tried every free program available without luck of recovering a deleted file from months ago. Thinking my file was deleted forever and lose all hope I came across this website as a recommendation.

I was reluctant as it seemed pricey compared to other programs, but damn worth every penny. It managed to even find files I thought were wiped from existence.

Kudos to r-tools, thank you!
Why make incremental backups, when there is R-Studio?

I`m an IT professional who has worked from home for over a decade. Early on in my career, I configured an HP ProLiant Server (Raid 1+0) as a workstation that I would remote into from my laptop. As technology evolved, I began to use it only for email and as a config file repository.

A short while ago, one of the drives degraded, but the HP ProLiant Server (Raid 1+0) still functioned fine on the remaining drive. I was complacent and didn`t replace the ...
