Mobile Device Data Recovery
By Matt Brennan
While mobile devices such as phones and tablets made communication infinitely easier, the data on them can be increasingly difficult to recover. Mobile device data recovery is more complex than the standard alternative.
Our mobile phones can handle an ever-increasing amount of data. That data comes in many types, including:
- Other applications
Whether we’re talking about iPhones, Android, or the increasing types of tablets to hit the market, mobile device data recovery may look different than the traditional types.
Data Recovery Research and Development Is Important
Many data recovery companies will tell you that they can recover your data, but without the experience, they may be telling you what you want to hear to get you in the door. It’s important to hire a data recovery company that prioritizes research and development so that you know they’ve put the effort into fixing this specific type of problem in the past.
A data recovery company that prioritizes research and development can establish cutting-edge practices to find the best ways to recover important mobile data – drastically improving their success rate with your device.
This is important because there are new mobile devices entering the market all the time, and the hardware can be more compact and complex to recover than the standard desktop counterparts. It’s important to hire a data recovery company that stays current with the constant influx of products to hit the market and understands what issues may plague them.
What Causes a Mobile Device to Fail?
Well, mobile devices can fail for many reasons, including:
- They just get old. Sometimes the companies stop supporting certain software or operating systems. There may be more vulnerabilities. As technology ages, your data is increasingly at risk.
- Dropping them. The physical impact of a drop or rough handling over time can result in components that become loose over time.
- Accidental deletion. Once a file is deleted on a mobile device it becomes harder to recover.
- Liquids and any electronic components really don’t mix.
- Malfunctioning errors. Operating system errors, viruses, or other accidents can lead to data loss.
Signs of Mobile Device Failure
There are plenty of signs that your mobile device may fail you soon, and that you may be at risk for data loss. If your device won’t access the login screen, or your correct passcode won’t log you in, you may be at risk for an impending data loss.
When the device takes longer to complete certain basic tasks or load a common screen it can be a bad sign as well. If you can’t seem to get past the Apple logo on the startup, or the computer doesn’t recognize the device, those are bad signs as well.
Mobile Device Data Recovery
The mobile data recovery process is straightforward and similar to the process for normal data recovery. Our technicians will diagnose your device, and give you an estimate on recovery and cost.
At that point, the recovery process can begin, if the quote is accepted. Once the data is recovered, it can be placed on a different media or device so that you can reliably access it without having to worry about the same issue repeating itself.
