Did your business or home recently suffer a flood or some other type of significant water damage? Did a laptop, desktop, phone, or other technology device sustain water damage? If so, you may find that it's not possible to turn the device on or that the data that was on the device is no longer accessible. While this can understandably have you in a panic, you should know that there is a possible solution to your problem. There are companies today that work in water damage device recovery. Here's how a service like this works and why it might be worth giving it a try.
Data Could Still Be Available
So you pushed the power button on your laptop and it won't even turn on anymore. Getting soaked with water tends to do that to a computer. But what you need to understand is that while the system might not turn on, there might not be water damage to every last bit of your hard drive. If you can remove the drive and dry or air it out, it might be possible to put the drive into another machine that you can use for recovery. A professional data recovery service will know exactly what to do and will be able to find any data that is still accessible on the drive even if your current laptop won't work.
The Cost of the Service Could Be Nothing By Comparison
Yes, it's true that paying for a data recovery service will cost you or your business money. But if the data you lost is valuable to you, you almost can't afford to not pay for the service. In other words, you may recover data that could be worth thousands of dollars to your company in the future. An example might be your list of potential future clients or a list of leads for future investors. Pay to recover that data and that data may pay you back for the effort tenfold.
A Professional Will Avoid Additional Damage
It may be possible to try and put the damaged hard drive into an external enclosure and plug it into another laptop that didn't get wet. But have you ever dealt with a situation like this before? How do you know you aren't going to do additional damage to the hard drive while trying to go it alone with this data recovery effort? A professional service knows exactly how to handle the hard drive in order to protect it and avoid additional damage.Share
