Whether you are storing your data on an external USB hard drive, USB ‘thumbdrive’, SD card, or have an old media like Zip or Jaz cartridges or even floppy diskettes around, CBL Data Recovery can assist in times of need.

Removable storage devices are utilized in both the computing environment and for other digital capture devices such as cameras. Some removable media available today are approaching the performance, capacity and cost of hard disk drives. Unfortunately, floppy disk media are much more susceptible to failure due to their size and portability.

At CBL Data Recovery, we are able to retrieve lost data from:

  • USB external hard drives
  • USB keys & thumbdrives
  • Digital Camera Cards (SD cards etc)
  • SyQuest
  • Floppy Disks
  • Optical Disks
  • Jaz Disks
  • Zip Disks
  • SyQuest Cartridges
  • DVDs/CD-ROMs

The Process for Removable Media Data Recovery

Begin the CBL data recovery process by filling out our online data recovery form or simply call us toll-free at 1-800-551-3917 to speak to one of our customer care professionals. Your CBL customer care professional will ask you a series of questions to determine the cause of your data loss situation and will guide you through the recovery process.

Depending on the level of service you require, your data could be recovered in as little as 24 hours.

Once your smart card is received by CBL, it is immediately logged into our system. At this point, you will receive a call from your CBL customer care professional who will confirm receipt of your flash card media and gather any additional information required by our data recovery engineers.

Your secure digital or compact flash media is then placed in our lab for a free evaluation. During this evaluation, a copy of your media is made. As part of our service commitment to you, a workable copy of your sd media is necessary in order to ensure the integrity of your original data is maintained at all times.

As soon as the evaluation is complete, your customer care professional will contact you with the lab results. If data recovery is possible, a quotation will immediately be e-mailed to you for approval.

Once your data is recovered it is taken through a strict quality control process to ensure the data 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.

In the unfortunate situation where no data is recoverable, there will be no charge to you for the evaluation or data recovery attempt.

To arrange shipment of your digital camera media, please fill out our online data recovery form. Our online data recovery system will provide you with a job reference number for tracking purposes along with shipping instructions for your media.
