EXT3 Data Recovery

The EXT3 format is a journaled file system most commonly used on the Linux kernel. By the end of 2001, EXT3 had merged with Linux and officially replaced EXT2. The main advantage of EXT3 over its predecessor is a feature called journaling, which made the system even more reliable. However, despite the reliability of Linux, drives can fail in any circumstance, which can cause data loss.

EXT3 has dominated most Linux systems for well over a decade, proving itself a reliable format for businesses and individuals around the world. But any drive can experience data loss. Our specialists are experts in recovering data from any Linux device. Our fast turnaround times, locations across the country, and confidentiality guarantee have made Drive Data Recovery one of the most trusted names in data recovery.

Identifying the cause of your data loss is the first step our experts take during the free diagnosis of your EXT3 formatted device. Once we have identified the cause, we can select the best method to recover your data. You will then receive a diagnostic report that details the cause and provides an up-front quote on the cost to recover your data and the time required for the recovery process.

While data loss can occur because of a range of issues or accidents, the three fundamental types of damage that cause data loss are logical drive failure, electrical drive failure, and mechanical drive failure.

Logical drive failure, or corruptions to your storage device, can occur to even the most secure Linux drives. This damage can be caused by mishandling the device while it is reading or writing information.

Electrical drive failure can occur when a surge of electricity hits your device. This can be caused by faulty equipment, power outages, or even electrical storms.

Mechanical drive failure, or physical damage, can occur because of drops or spills, and some drives can also develop disk degradation over time.
