Q. Can data loss be prevented

A. CBL Data Recovery offers clients a secure environment so that they can rest easy knowing their information is kept private. Every member of the CBL team is under non-disclosure. Furthermore, a special secure isolation room with controlled access is available when confidentiality is of the utmost importance such as in the case of government data. CBL also offers an Online Remote Repair service for certain types of data recovery projects

Q. In what format is the recovered data delivered

A. CBL Data Recovery will return data with the same file names, in the same data type, with the same characteristics, identifiers and in the same structure and location as before the failure.

Q. How long does data recovery take

A. Each project is different and requires unique processes and timelines. Upon receipt of damaged media, CBL Data Recovery will provide a report within one business day outlining the specifics required to perform the data recovery. While some projects may require several days, even weeks, about 75% of all jobs have a turnaround time of less than 48 hours.

Q. How is data recovered

A. There are many methods by which data is recovered, both conventional and non-conventional. In fact, there is no one set way to recover data. Each project is analyzed on an individual basis and only then can an action plan be developed. CBL Data Recovery prides itself on being unique in its approach. While other data recovery players test and re-test their clients’ media, CBL employs state-of-the-art replication technology to duplicate clients’ data bit by bit reducing the risk of causing further damage to the data.

What Is Data Recovery

A. Simply put, data recovery is a system of processes used to recover lost data from a variety of sources, including hard disk drives, servers, or tape backups. Performed by trained experts, data recovery is the last resort when all other methods, including commercial software, fail.
