Genuine Reviews Only

In general we avoid the use of ‘TrustPilot’ due to the high proportion of fake reviews posted on many business profiles. Google and Facebook reviews have increased reliability as they provide some identification of the reviewer.

Moreover, we do have a number of previous customers at high-profile academic institutions and companies who are happy to provide a written recommendation to any  potential customer. Some prospective customers find this particularly useful when making enquiries regarding the recovery of large RAID arrays or complicated virtualised environments, where the associated cost of recovery can be significant.

RAID Data Recovery Reviews

Below are a number of testimonials from customers who had failed RAID arrays recovered by CDR.

RAID 10 Dell, 8TB 4 x 2TB SAS comprising of a dozen virtual servers: Cheadle DATA Recovery Ltd successfully rebuilt the RAID array and recovered all of the data within 48 hours on our ’emergency service’. This was a challenging job, largely as a result of the considerable amount of recovered data and having the ensure error free virtual server image files (.VHD). What the customer said:

“Obviously this has been a difficult process for all of us [at the company], and we appreciate that you have gone to unusual lengths to provide us with the data we require, and to satisfy our changing requirements.” R. Illing, Web Applications UK Ltd.

HP/Compaq RAID 0, 3-Disk SCSI with a 1 HDD failure: One of the SCSI Seagate Cheetah 10K hard disk drives was suffering from a translator fault. The result of this is that the hard disk drive is completely inaccessible and shows a capacity of 0Mb. CDR was able to resolve this issue and then rebuild the RAID array. The result was a full recovery. What the customer said:

“That’s amazing…Many thanks for the recovery work you performed for us. I will have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who needs them.” P. Thornicroft, Tectrix Solutions Ltd.

RAID 0, mini G-RAID 1TB external hard disk, 1 HDD degraded, and corrupt HFS+ filesystem:   A full recovery of 900GB of data was made. The critical 120GB of this was returned to the customer within 24 hours of starting working on the device. The remainder of the data was was returned at a later date at the convenience of the customer. What the customer said:

“This is all good, thanks for all your help yesterday and thanks so much for giving me such a good deal, it is really really appreciated.” S. Owen, Standby Productions.

Having already taken a macbook to another company for data retrival John at Cheadle Data was still happy to give advice and support by email and did eventually take a look at the drive. He confirmed that it was not possible in this case to do anything further. What I did like was John's professionalism and willingness to engage in communication. I will certainly go to them first next time I encounter similar problems. First rate service.

I was kept in constant communication with the team and every element was explained to me throughout the process. CDR were true to their word on how they worked and were very professional from start to finish.
The replacement drive and recovered data was returned quickly and as promised.
Would recommend them if you need your data to be recovered by true professionals!!

John at Cheadle Data Recovery provided an excellent service and was able to recover all of the data one of our failed harddrives. Such a relief to find a professional company when handling such important data.
