Data Recovery

We have all experienced that moment of panic when our computer screen flashes the blue screen of death and switches off. That is the precise moment we realise how reliant we actually are on whatever information our computer holds.

Data loss is a very common problem, and can be caused by human error, viral attacks or other disasters, but in nearly all hard drive recovery cases, the data can be recovered by one of our trained ,Gold Coast based computer data recovery technicians.

Computer Repairs - Gold Coast - Hard Drive Data Recovery is usually a time consuming


If your hard drive is still functioning and stable, it may be possible for our technicians to put the hard drive into an enclosure which you can then use as a portable hard drive.

Alternatively if your hard disk is unstable we can also attempt to recover your data and transfer your files, music, photos onto your new computer or an external hard drive.

Our Gold Coast based technician will need to find out how damaged your hard drive is to determine the best way to attempt data recovery.


  • Windows Failure; data recovery, transfer and backup
  • Virus Attack / Damage
  • Unrecognised USB 2.0 / FireWire (IEEE-1394 a/b) external hard drives

Hard Drive Data Recovery is usually a time consuming but relatively simple task if the BIOS recognises it and your hard drive turns on. This tends to happen with most hard drive failures.
Our experienced IT technicians only have a few computer failures that result in irrecoverable data.

So, before you go into panic mode, or rush out to purchase a new computer, call A TECH IN NEED. Let our Gold Coast team of  technicians know the problems you are having and probably within the day you will have your data restored in one form or another.

Contact Us our friendly Gold Coast based team today to book   your data recovery options with our experts.
