If you are looking for Data Recovery in Kansas City, then you have found the right place.  Whether you are an individual looking for those pictures you have been meaning to back up for ages or a business owner who relies on data for day to day operations, its not a matter of “if” your hard drive will fail but rather “WHEN” it will.

Google did a study a few years back that showed in their huge data centers a failure rate of about 2% in a hard drives first year, but a nearly 9% failure rate a year for drives that are 3-years old or more.  So the older your hard drive, the more likely it is to fail.  It is surprising that so many individuals and businesses still do not take backing up seriously.  Carbonite offers a great program for $59 a year for unlimited backup.  Its super cheap insurance.

While hard drive do suffer mechanical failures at a high rate, what we see more frequently is loss or inability to access data as a result of a computer virus that corrupts the operating system or makes the computer unable to start up.  We have even seen a virus actually delete data and there was a hacker a while back who changed all documents to a picture of an octopus.

We have had calls from individuals looking for business data like inventories, accounting records and important architectural drawings that have been lost because of hard drive crash.  We’ve had authors lose manuscripts, mothers who want their pictures of their children and all sorts of regular people wanting to get their important personal document back off of hard drives, thumb drives and memory cards.
