About us - Laboratory GutenData 24

We are glad that you are interested in the services of our laboratory.

W e have been in the field of information recovery for just over 10 years. Initially, we positioned ourselves as b2b, but after 6 years we came to the conclusion that being limited to service centers is not an option. The laboratory carries out orders from individuals. Over the years we have accumulated experience in data recovery from damaged storage media drives and corrupted file structures. Success in fulfilling the tasks set, in restoring data, directly depends on our skills and capabilities. We constantly seek for to keep abreast in the field of information recovery. Existing communities, forums, seminars, where each specialist can share and find out what's new in this narrowly focused topic. Until the storage media has become more reliable and affordable, and in redundancy the human factor is not completely ruled out - the data recovery will go hand in hand with progress, and we will take revenge on it.

What equipment is required for work:

T o work with faulty storage media devices, we use the products of leading manufacturers in the field of information recovery from Acelab and Soft Center. The lack of these tools in many cases of working with a really faulty drive can end in failure. To recover deleted files, it is not necessary to have these complexes; there are free programs for recovering accidentally deleted information.

In what environment do you need to work:

Work inside the hard drive’s hermozone should be carried out in fairly clean conditions, due to the rapid degradation of the reading capabilities of magnetic heads in a contaminated environment (Yes, it’s the dust that you could ever see on your monitor or furniture. The smallest particles of dust in the air will not cause us any inconvenience, but for your hard drive it can create problems like Godzilla for Tokyo). And so Godzilla is a dangerous obstacle to magnetic heads, so we need to minimize its presence. That is, we need to approach laboratory conditions, as is done at the factory. For this we need a Laminar box with a downward flow of air and a Hepa filtration system according to ISO 14644-1. The presence of a laminar box does not guarantee you absolutely clean air inside it, because the use of a clean box outside a clean room, as it done at the manufacturer’s factory, leads to rapid wear of the filtration system. And also to its contamination by a specialist working with the drive. But this option is better than the absence of any means of protection at all.

What tools are used when working:

In addition to a microscope with a good approximation and a soldering station, when working with faulty information storage devices, you often have to manipulate rather fragile parts of the storage device, such as a block of magnetic heads or plates of a hard magnetic disk. For these purposes, special head replacement (swap) tools are designed. They are produced by a number of manufacturers Salvation data (China), HDRC (India), HDDSurgery (Serbia) and ER-Tools (Russia).

Replacement (swap) tools of the block of magnetic heads and plattes

Head Replacement (swap) tools are a convenient tool thanks to which we can minimize the risks of damage to the block of magnetic heads when they are moved (swaped) from a donor disk to a damaged drive.

Soldering station, ultrasonic cleaner and preheat plate.

As in any service center without a soldering station, nowhere! And since data recovery implies a temporary resurrection of the drive - you can’t do without these devices! For chip off and desoldering bga, lga, tsop, emmc (android devices), cob (monolith), nand memory chips, replacing burnt elements (diodes, drivers, processors, etc.) on the hard disk controller or ssd drive, flushing flooded circuit boards for other everyday data recovery tasks - without a hot air soldering station, ultrasonic cleaner, multimeter, preheat plate and laboratory power supply, adapters and pads, you just can not do!

Donor drive database

And perhaps the most important part that no DR company can do without is the donor drive database. The same part is the most expensive in addition to equipment. Large amounts of money are spent on donor purchases, the costs of which, in most cases, exceed annual updates of data recovery systems and systems. So, in general, the collection of donor disks is almost the most important of the tasks of DR-firms.
