The white on black ‘None system disk error’ that appears on computer startup is one of the most feared computer errors known, if the computer can’t see the disk, then “where has all my data gone?” is the obvious question that comes to mind instantly. Support personnel & we technicians worry about this error more that any other as it might be a simple problem of a loose cable connection or it could mean a hard drive failure and the loss of all data contained within. Now the data might be a server boot drive supporting many email clients or a spreadsheet on a workstation containing a years worth of sales & receipts. In either case a hard drive failure can mean hours of downtime, frustrated clients and be a major disruption to your business, even having made a backup, you might still not be able to retrieve projects work on today.

Or in the event of none-availability of back-up, we can offer our specialist in-house data recovery service, available for Windows, MAC Novell or Unix operating systems on 2’5” or 3’5” hard drive, CD media and all types of flash / memory cards.
