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.

I went to john as my SD card had corrupted at a wedding I was shooting. I can not fault John's service at all. He was informative and extremely helpful, although my images were not recoverable due to the card being counterfeit, he did explain what to watch out for when buying a card and where to buy from, thanks for your help John

Highly recommended. Top communication, prices explained clearly, kept in the loop throughout the process, John gave a brilliant personalised and welcoming service, and the no recovery, no fee basis really clinched it for me. Was happy to pay out for full recovery of my data. Will be recommending to everyone who asks about data recovery.

I would highly recommend Cheadle DATA Recovery. They were recommended to me and I would certainly pass this recommendation on. They did a brilliant job of retrieving my much needed data after my hard drive became corrupted. I like that they operate on a 'no-recovery, no-fee' basis. They also gave me a full price list so I knew what I'd be paying if the data were recovered. Thank you for a great job.
