Data recovery from all different hard drive technologies
We have almost 30 years of experience in hard drive data recovery.
We have cutting edge technology and the widest experience. The first hard drives we recovered, in 1989, had sizes between 10Mb and 40 Mb, a hundredth the size of a DVD. In the last years we have recovered data from obsolete systems, unknown to most laboratories in Europe nowadays.
At present, our R&D programs allow us to recover data from the newest devices, which most companies are not able to do.
Any type of hard drive
- Internal hard drives (SATA, SAS, IDE/ATA, SCSI, Fibre Channel)
- Solid state hard drives (SSD)
- External hard drives (USB, FireWire, e-SATA, Thunderbolt...)
- Ethernet hard drives (NAS)
- Obsolete devices (IDE/XT, ESDI, MFM, RLL...)
Any operative system
- WINDOWS (NTFS, FAT)
- Discontinued operative systems (Pick, Novell NetWare...)
Any type of failure
- Logical failure (data are not accessible, but the hardware is not damaged —data deletion, formatting, corruption, virus…—)
- Physical failure (mechanical, electronic, controller or low-level control software failure)
- Water damage
- Fire damage
- Western Digital

To reach 100% data recovery it will be necessary to process the content of the hard drive with specific techniques, depending on the kind of damage. If there has been overwriting there will usually only be a partial recovery.
Serman has the technology to adapt the parameters of donnor PCBs to the damaged hard drive. Success rate is close to 100%.
- Whirring, vibration or motor not spinning.
- It makes a “tac tac” noise and the motor may stop completely.
- The BIOS does not detect the hard drive, or it is detected erratically.
Depending on the seriousness of each case, we will have to apply mechanical support techniques and, in some cases, even transplanting the disks to another hard drive. This is a severe fault. The success rate is above 90%.
- The BIOS does not detect the hard drive.
- The motor shaft gets stuck, making an odd and characteristic whistle, like a musical tune.
- The motor does not spin.
When a motor failure happens, it is necessary to transplant the disks to another hard drive. This is a complex procedure that requires experience and extreme accuracy. A specific equipment will be required in each case. The success rate is above 85%.
