PITS Global Data Recovery Services provides a comprehensive set of data recovery solutions to restore deleted and lost data from encrypted drives. With our advanced data recovery utilities and experienced engineers, we successfully retrieve all types of encrypted files.
Nowadays, most organizations like IT companies, business people, accountancy, and institutions use encryption to protect valuable data and enhance privacy. While encryption adds complexity to the data recovery process, files stored on encrypted devices can be recovered by skilled data recovery specialists at PITS Global Data Recovery Services.
Recovery of Encrypted Files
An encrypted file system provides high security and reliability for its users, at the same time making it impossible for unauthorized staff to access any files. Without a matching key and password, you do not have access to information, and it becomes non-readable. So to open, view, change or rename the data, a secret key is a necessity.
In a failure of encrypted storage devices, there is always an option to contact data restoring professionals. Now data recovery companies are experts in salvaging encrypted data with the latest tools and advanced equipment.
Many businesses are comfortable providing encryption keys to decrypt and validate data before returning it. However, this is not always the case. For some organizations, providing encryption keys to an external vendor such as a data recovery company is against their security policy.
Whether you need repair for a single file, regain access to a damaged RAID array, or rebuild the whole operating system, we can return your data while keeping your encryption fully intact. Nevertheless, the file condition will be unknown until someone with access to this data decrypts the files.
In a situation when a company gives us a key, the process goes differently.
Steps of Encrypted Data Recovery Process:
- Evaluation – Analyzing your media to estimate the most effective recovery plan. This step is significant, as it helps our data recovery engineers to know what they are dealing with right from the start of the recovery process.
- Physical Repair – If the device has physical damage, we repair it in an ISO Certified Class 10 Cleanroom. We keep our Cleanroom certification updated and offer easy access to our laboratory examination reports.
- Logical Repair – We treat corrupted and dropped data with specialized utilities after creating a copy of the original media. Our team offers high recovery rates for lost, overwritten and damaged data with hardware or software encryption.
- Returning Retrieved Data – Our technicians can replace your files in an encrypted or decrypted format after recovering data. Our team does everything to provide you with options that fit your business’s needs and deadlines.
Our highly qualified engineers are trained with each kind of encryption parameter and how they work. With our advanced data recovery tools and state-of-the-art software, we will fully retrieve all your essential data.
Identifying the Causes of Data Loss
There may be different reasons for the device to fail and for data loss to happen. The cause can be apparent; however, to determine the extent of damage, our team recommends getting device evaluation as soon as a data failure occurs.
Common Causes of Data Loss On Encrypted Media Include:
- File System Corruption
- Bad Sectors
- RAID Rebuild Failure
- Physical Hard Drive Failure
- Accidental File Deletion
- Encrypted Partition Header Issues
- Accidental Overwrite
- Virus Damage and Malware
Our company provides technical evaluation to evaluate the physical condition of failed hard drives, RAID arrays, flash drives, and other devices. We perform risk-free analysis very carefully, as we do not want to cause additional damage to fragile failed storage. After the evaluation results are ready, we report to our customer about the seriousness of the failure, price quote, timing turnaround, and wait for his approval.
After the approval is received, we start decrypting the drive and perform data recovery. Most cases are ultimately recoverable, and if we have username and password information, we return fully decrypted and recovered data within a few days of receiving your media.
What to Do When An Encrypted Device Fails
Data loss is an unexpected event, and you may not be prepared for it. So when it happens, you should know what to do not cause more damage to the device.
Encrypted storages are susceptible to malfunction and other logical failures. To keep your data safe, immediately power down your storage system if you cannot access any files types.
After the device is turned off, do not rerun it to recover files by yourself. Online and free data recovery software does not guarantee you a 100% result and does not inspire confidence, no matter how many positive customers reviews it has.
On the contrary, it can drastically decrease your chances of successful treatment by overwriting crucial data. So, rather than dealing with your problem yourself, contact a reliable and secure data recovery company.
