Data Recovery Service

Recovering the irreplaceable.

At Cosmic Computers we understand the value of data and how important it can be on a business and personal level, from invoices to old family photo’s, losing data can be a scary time. 

Data can be lost due to various reasons from hardware failure to software corruption. 

Hard drives both mechanical and solid-state drives have limited lifespans.

On mechanical drives, this is mainly due to the amount of moving parts wearing out over time, a solid-state hard drive although ultimately more reliable than mechanical drives are limited by a write cycle, which is the number of times a sector of data can be erased and written.

Hard drives typically are given an average lifespan of around 3-4 years (this is dependant on make and model of the drive).


If you notice your hard drive is making more noise or taking longer then normal to respond or transfer data this is one of the early warning signs of failure and we would highly suggest you get your data backed up. 

Tips to increase the chances of recovering your data.

  • Clicking, grinding or other noises – Power down your device as soon as possible. 
  • Deleted or missing files – do not use the computer, as doing so may overwrite potentially recoverable data. 
  • Water damage – If the device is active power down and do not turn back on, even if you believe the device has dried out completely, normally corrosion will start forming and can cause catastrophic damage.
