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.

Possibly THE best data recovery expert in the NW.
Not cheap, but thankfully backing up your data is. Put John out of a job & backup your data today! Then test that backup.
IF the worst happens, you have reached the right place.

I had to turn to Cheadle Data Recovery in my hour of desperate need following a water incident leading to a broken laptop. Their overall service was absolutely fantastic, as was the outcome in retrieving what I thought was lost data and files.

Their communication, clear pricing, speed of action and overall outcome delivered - could not have been any better. Absolute life-savers in your darkest IT hours.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I don't usually write reviews but words fail to express the gratitude for the service received from Cheadle DATA Recovery. The morning after completing around 4-5 months of intensive work and having it stored on my new (4 months old) harddrive it stopped working and refused to mount. John was incredibly kind and very patient in explaining the whole process in great detail, and more importantly handling my information with the greatest of care. The fault was digital so he managed to recover ALL of my 4TB of info and even managed to save the drive itself. The service was super fast and John went above and beyond to get the drive back to me safely while dealing with various hurdles along the way. The communication was irreproachable, the TRANSPARENCY of the service was the best I have come across, honest and I felt beyond safe with my drive and the sensitive information on it. John and Cheadle Data Recovery is truly a model of the BEST SERVICE EVER.
