Data recovery experts Kroll Ontrack have this week announced that they are now able to recover lost, corrupt, or deleted data from the flash memory drives of Apple devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
According to Kroll, they can now implement new data recovery techniques to address logical failures, or operating system (OS) failures, on personal Apple devices.
Equipped with a full range of data recovery tools for both logical and physical failures, Kroll Ontrack claims to offer the most comprehensive data recovery for Apple devices on the market.
The company also offers a diagnostic report that shows the quality of recoverable Apple device files, so that customers know exactly what will be returned to them prior to committing to the cost of the recovery.
If you’ve never heard of Kroll, they have a pedigree track record in data recovery for desktop and external harddrives, not least for Windows machines, and have dominated the market here in the UK for years.
We’ve even used them here at Techwatch Towers, a couple of years ago, after a main business harddrive was accidentally formatted. After trying numerous programs online, with weak results, if any, we ended up at Kroll and got absolutely everything recovered for less than a grand.
This service might have been personally useful recently as well, after losing everything on my iPad after upgrading from OS X 4 to 5 – thanks to iTunes immediately deleting the original backup with a backup of the blank upgraded iPad. Still, back to Angry Birds for 3 stars on all levels again …
While Kroll might be a little pricy for most consumers, the widespread use of iPads for business means that this could be a very valuable market indeed – for both Kroll, and those desperate to recover their data.
