Recommend Lab for Portable Hard Drive data recovery


I wonder if anybody can help me.

I have a Packard Bell Store and Save 3500 portable hard drive.

It recently just stopped working. A general IT guy had a look, but recommended that I find a lab with a clean room to recover the data.

Can anybody recommend a good reliable yet affordable company?

I've read some horror stories about some of the companies advertising on the web.

Many thanks.

I find that

most of the external drives I have had to work on it is the enclosure that is the problem, take it apart and install the hard drive into your computer directly as a slave and they usually work fine.

Ontrack is probably the mother of all data recovery outfits. It's been around a long time. Won't be cheap, though.

Recommend Lazarus Data Recovery for recovering data
I've used Lazarus twice and my partner has used them once. They're experienced, knowledgeable, honest. Some of their clients have included (according to their website): Hewlett Packard, Apple, Disney, FedEx, M.I.T., and NASA. They're not cheap but no competent data recovery service is. Customer service is great, too! You'll feel like you are their only customer when you send your computer to them. I live in San Francisco so I've visited their unmarked facility. I can't say enough about how much I think of the quality of their work.

Recommend Lab for Portable Hard Drive data recovery

Hi Happy,
Laptop hard drive recovery is possible using good hard drive recovery software. Even I faced the same situation few days back but I was able to get back all my files from hard drive using Remo Recovery Software. I suggest you to use the same. You can download the free demo version of this recovery tool and check for the recovery results.
