As more and more people save ‘media rich content’ locally, external hard drives have quietly become the largest growing segment of storage technology over the past few years. These cost-effective hard drives provide ample storage for small and medium sized businesses, home users and even large companies to store vast amounts of data files, photos, music and movies. Users have multiple storage options ranging from USB connectivity to FireWire technology or they can use a NAS and access the external hard drive’s storage space over their local network. In addition, some external hard drives may come with more than one hard drive for built-in redundancy or simply for a larger capacity archive area. While some of the NAS units may use any one of a variety of Linux-based operating systems, the majority of external USB and FireWire hard drives will use the same file system as its host computer, mainly being Windows or Mac.

As soon as the external hard drive is received, it is immediately logged into our system.

The external hard drive is then quickly sent into the laboratory for evaluation. During this evaluation stage, whenever possible, a copy of your media is made. As one of CBL’s founding policies, we make sure that the original data and media is never compromised in any way.

As soon as the evaluation is complete, your customer care professional will contact you to inform you of the evaluation results and we will follow up with a written quotation for your approval.

Once the data is recovered, it is taken through a strict quality control process to ensure it is in a usable format. Your data will be returned to you on separate destination media. In most cases hard drives are used but other format options are available as needed.
