HFS+ Data Recovery

Introduced in 1998 with MAC OS 8.1, HFS Plus (HFS+) is Apple’s proprietary file system. While originally used for the iPod, Apple’s massive success across a variety of computing and data technologies has turned HFS+ into one of the most widely used formats around the world. While owners of Apple devices like Macs, iPhones, and iPads rely on HFS+ for their data every day, no device is completely safe from failure.

We can help restore your data from any HFS+ device from one of our many state of the art facilities.

Identifying the cause of your data loss or device failure is the first step our experts will take during the free diagnosis of your Apple 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 there are several possible causes of your data loss, the three primary types of damage are logical drive failure, electrical drive failure, and mechanical drive failure.

Logical drive failure, or corruptions to your storage data, can happen at any time. This damage can occur when you remove your device without properly ejecting it or otherwise mishandle it while the drive is in use.

Electrical drive failure is a threat to any device, even with the various surge protection technologies included in many Apple devices. Data drives can be especially vulnerable to power surges caused by other failing hardware, faulty cables, power outages, or even lightning strikes.

Mechanical drive failure, or physical damage, is a particular problem for portable devices, but it can happen with any storage device. Whether caused by disk degradation or physical damage, any piece of hardware can fail due to mechanical damage and put your data at risk.
