Data Recovery from Mobile device with a broken screen, flooding and no power

More and more data are generated from Smart phones and pads (IOS, ANDROID, Blackberry, Symbian, WP, and QNX), DigiCAM, voice recorder, PVR/DVR, notebook/tablet instead of desktop and servers. Data loss is common for data stored on these devices due to being dropped, flooded with water, and messed up system, software/firmware malfunction. How can we recover data from these devices in the case of they cannot be powered on any more or we cannot input passcode since the screen was broken?

Data Recovery of Deleted Fragmented SQL Database Files

2U Dell server with 2 raid controllers 2 arrays: OS and Data. 30 GB database files were deleted.

To cover this mistake, battery on the raid card was replaced and disks from data array were offline. Disks were forced online and synced. IT person swapped disks to another server to force these disks on line. Wrong raid type was used. To make matters worse they used CHKDSK to data partition so MFT was damaged. There are several database files on this SQL server. Two of them need to be recovered.

A data recovery company was hired to recover these 2 database files. After 3 weeks scan and scan, they couldn’t get the deleted database files.

Data Care Clini has recovered SQL database files owing to reformatting or repartitioning unless database was rewritten completely. This data recovery company contacted Data Care Clinic for help. Data Care Clinic provides service to rescue partially overwritten database file.

From our experience, not all recovered database file can be used via client software though database file can be attached to SQL server successfully. After database file was attached, client can remotely check recovered database file using self-developed ERP software. Pay only after client validated the database file works normally and correctly.

After analysis, Data Care Clinic recovered these database files and successfully attached them to SQL server. Data records are correct.
