Data Recovery For All Apple Macs

Apple Mac Data Recovery

As nice as they are Apple Macs still contain a hard drive you need to backup, usually Apple’s Time Machine Backup (OSX 10.5 +) or iCloud (OSX 10.7+) will take care of this.

If you haven’t a current backup and you’ve been to the Apple store in Cabot Circus, The Mall or in Bath with your prized Macbook Pro and they have said your hard drive has failed……

We can help.

Even If your Applecare or guarantee is still current we can remove your hard drive* and recover the data from the drive. Once the data recovery is complete and you have all your files back, you can return the Mac to the Apple store for a warranty replacement of the hard drive.

We provide data recovery for:

Apple iMac

Apple Macbook Pro

Apple Macbook

Apple Mac Pro

Apple Macbook Air

Apple Mac Mini

Apple G5 Powermac

Apple G5 iMac

Apple G4 Powerbook

Apple G4/G3 iBook

We can also recover data from Solid State Drive (SSD). In addition to this we can recover data from any mac formatted (hfs+) external firewire hard drive

Over the years we have recovered data for many professional photographers, designers, musicians, students and home users.

With any data recovery please give us full details (if you don’t know that’s fine, ie it just stopped working one day here it is)


The type of details we find really useful:

Was Filevault switched on? (file encryption, you have to switch this on)

What version of OSX is it i.e.  10.5 Leopard, 10.6 Snow Leopard,  10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion

What has been tried already?  This can make a difference to know in advance what has happened.

Has it been dropped?  – Just say what happened before it stopped working, could be nothing, just hardware failure.

Has it gotten wet? – A leaking water bottle in the same bag seems common these days

What files or folders are a priority, i.e.Pictures in the Jamie profile (iPhoto Library)



Maindisc did an amazing job with my GRaid. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again –  Martin Hartley October 2012


Remember - when affected by data loss issues - Don’t Panic!

Just switch if off and get it booked in for a diagnostic.
