ReMac has recently recovered deleted student data for a sixth form college in Surrey. The deleted illustrator and photoshop files were deleted in the knowledge that the data was backed up onsite. Unfortunately the recent backup had experienced errors and 30GB of student work was lost.

ReMac received a call from the college on Thursday evening following the events of the day with 1 question in mind, can the data be recovered? In many cases ReMac is able to recover deleted data and reassured the college a successful recovery should be achieved.

ReMac collected the X-Serve the same day free of charge and was delivered to our specialist lab facility the following morning. Upon receipt of the X-Serve we made an identical copy (forensic clone) of the hard disk drives to prevent any changes to the original media. Using custom advanced recovery tools ReMac successful recovered the deleted data the same day and returned the recovered data ready for the students return of Monday morning.

The college representative was relieved to hear that ReMac had recovered 100% of the deleted data using our advanced recovery tools. They were suprised to hear the data was successfully recovered as previous attempts were made using ‘off the shelf recovery tools’ to no avail. ReMac do not recommend using free or cheap data recovery software if you wish to recover valuable data.

The college invested in a backup solution following the recovery to prevent necessity for data recovery in the future. For further information about ReMac’s offsite backup solutions please see our Data Backup page.
