Professional Data Recovery in the Philippines that really recovers your data

A few months ago, my hard drive crashed. It’s a WD Elements 1TB drive. I didn’t do anything, I just copied some files, then suddenly it went crazy. It can’t copy any files at all. I have very important important data inside that drive and I don’t have a backup. Because I’m a slight techy, I attempted to recover my data in my storage device using various data recovery softwares.

I just googled online and found a lot of data recovery applications, both free and paid. I tried Revuca, Pandora, ADRC Data Recovery Tool, TestDisk, UndeletePlus, and a wholte lot more. I also tried all of the recommended data recovery softwares by Lifehacker, but it didn’t work.

I was hopeless because I didn’t successfully recover my precious data in my hard drive. Due to this dilemme, I decided to use a data recovery center that is cheap and that works. I found expensive ones in the US and Singapore, but I guess it’s too expensive. It’s worth around $3000 USD just to recover a data from a $100 USD hard drive. Good thing there are a lot of data recovery centers in the Philippines. I tried XYON.com.ph, but after a month that I left my hard drive with them, they didn’t successfully recovered my data. They just used the same tools that I attempted to recover the data with the same method that I already did. They don’t have a lab or clean room here in the Philippines that opens the hard drive and recover the data from disc images, unlike what I’ve read in other professional data recovery centers in the US and Singapore.

XYON asked me if I agree to ship my hard disk to the US for a mere fee of around $1500 USD. They said that they will attempt to recover the data through their partner, Seagate. But I’m a bit skeptical and at the same time, awed with the price because it’s a bit expensive.

Good thing I found one in Sulit.com.ph who offers professional data recovery for only $600 USD. I gave them my hard disk and my data was recovered successfully. I you’re also looking for a professional data recovery company in the Philippines, I highly recommend Chris. You can e-mail him at [email protected] or call/text him at 0917-821-8802. You’ll never be disappointed.

  1. Hi bryan just wanna ask if chris is part of that company that fix your HD? if not what the name of the company that repair your HD

    1. It’s chris. Chris fixed it. May machine sila near ADMU then the raw data was sent to singapore, and sent back to me. Around $600 USD. Cheaper than Xyon referred.. 😀

  2. I also went to xyon philippines but they failed to recover my data. Also they referred me to their partner Seagate in the U.S but a too expensive.

  3. My Seagate back up plus portable hard drive when connected to the computer, keeps on blinking white light and the computer does not recognize it. I have tried troubleshooting, changing the cable, coonecting to a different computer but still does it. I’m asking for quotation on how much it would cost me to have my data recovered. Thank you!

    1. Just SMS the number in my post. They recover the data kahit nabasa ng ulan or nasunog ang HD. Yung sakin around $600 USD nagastos ko, it’s cheap na compared sa Seagate data recovery service sa US.

    1. yep magaling sila mag recover. Try to contact them muna for a quote. Depende kasi sa hard drive capacity, hindi depende sa data lng na need u.

  4. mas mura pla ang singilan sa ISS EYAN DATA RECOVERY CENTER.dito lng sa Pinas gagawin at my sarili silang clean room..

  10. To all,

    we cannot give/send quotation without checking your hdd, sd card, micro sd, ssd, other storage device first.

    give us ample time to interface your storage device with our machine in order to determine what exactly went wrong with it.

    after checking we willgive/send quotation and tell you how long it will take to recover your files.

    initial check-up is free of charge and no recovery no pay policy applies.

    God bless,

  12. If you need to save your data from a “broken” hd, then Chris is your guy. I’m not kidding.

    First off, I would just like to say thank you to Bryan for this blog post. Without this post, I would not have met Chris who I owe big time for helping me by recovering my videos and photos from our special family Europe trip.

    I used to easily trust external hds, no matter the make or brand. I’ve never had a problem like what I encountered just a few weeks ago. After years of casually storing family photos, school documents, and just about any other file type there is on my hds, It would have never occurred to me that just one drop or one improper ejection of the hd could mean losing all my files.

    Until now, I’m not entirely sure how it happened since my hd is shared among member of our family, but one day I was supposed to grab a family photo from my hd when my laptop (mac) just wouldn’t seem to read it. I thought maybe this was just probably nothing and proceeded eject and reinsert the hd. When this still did not work, I started to worry. I tried plugging it in another laptop, this time a windows unit, but still, it did not read. After that I was really worried, I did google searches on why this was happening and what are the possible causes and solutions – and most of what I read said that the hd was either corrupted or dead. When I finally realized this, all I could think about were losing the family photos, the videos. As much as possible, I wanted to save them.

    From googling possible self-solutions, which by the way did not work out for me, I started to look for data recovery services here in the Philippines. That’s when I stumbled upon this blog post. At first, I was a bit skeptical – I usually do not trust random blog posts, so what I did was, I opened it into a new tab and proceeded to look at other options. I clicked on those that had their own websites, their own facebook pages; I even searched for data recovery services on google maps to see if there are listings near my place. After reading and considering each’s services and reading reviews wherever possible, I was beginning to really lose it and lose hope on saving the photos and videos stored on my hd. By whatever reason, I decided to take a second look at this blog post and scroll down to the comments section to see if I could find out more about it. I read exchanges from random people and Bryan with Bryan insisting that this man’s service was the real deal. As I was now close to giving up, I decided to why not give this a try – and thank God I did.

    Cutting to the chase, I now have my family’s photos and videos back. This is really something that I did not think I would get back but thanks to Chris, I did.

    The day after deciding on giving the information on this blog post a try, I called the number (the one I used was 09206113020) and the one who answered was Chris. I immediately asked him if he still does data recovery and he said yes, so I asked him if I could bring my hd over the afternoon of that same day, and he said yes. And so I did.

    I met with him, gave him my hd and the background of the problem, at least from what I understood of it, and Chris was nice enough to explain and helped me understand what the possible causes are and what the possible solutions are for my case. I liked that a lot, I mean it was easier for me to trust a person taking his time to really explain what the situation was rather than just reading off google results. He advised me that they would check if the problem was amendable using what they had here in the Philippines and if not they would be sending my hd to Singapore, which from how I understand it is pretty standard operating procedure when it comes to these matters.

    Not long, not even 3 days have passed I think, when Chris called me and asked me if it would be ok to send the hd to SG seeing as their machines here in the Philippines were not enough. Of course, this meant spending on freight and eventually on the process of recovering the files – but as this post says, the service they offer for the price they ask for is very competitive – and for the sake of saving family photos and videos, it was worth it.

    The whole interaction and transaction took just over a week (this included labor weekend) so they were really efficient. They also made sure that I had knowledge of every step they were going to take before taking the step, always asking for my permission, this helped a lot in staying on top of the situation. This included decision points that meant incurring additional costs.

    All in all, I really appreciate Chris for what he was able to do. Thanks to him I have the photos and the videos back. He even gave me advice on the best ways of storing photos and videos. So if you need to save some data from your broken hd, then go ahead and contact Chris.

    Thanks again Chris!

    1. Hi Joshua!

      Awesome! Thank you for sharing your story with us. I’m glad your files were recovered by Chris. 🙂

  13. I had a very old IDE HDD for data recovery that had instrument data, had a very hard time finding someone who can/is willing to recover the said data.

    Chris (0920 611 3020) helped me to successfully recover all my data files, including some very old ones that are not known to me. Very professional!

    I highly recommend him for all data recovery problems.
