HddSurgery is an innovative technology company devoted to building professional hard disk data recovery tools. Company was founded in 2009. in Belgrade, Serbia by experienced data recovery experts from HelpDisc Data Recovery Company.
HddSurgery provides professional hard disk recovery tools. We cover all steps in physical data recovery operation and provide best equipment that will help data recovery companies to improve their clean room techniques and data recovery processes. Our tools also proven useful in the field of computer forensics.
Using these tools without adequate software support is not recommended. It is recommended to use some of the proven systems for cloning, such as Ace Lab, Salvation Data, Copy-r and other products.
It is possible to recover data without HddSurgery tools. Experienced data recovery technicians or engineers can have great success even without our tools, but they can have absolute security only by using HddSurgery tools. The general idea behind HddSurgery tools was to make sure that processes of head replacement, motor unstucking or spindle replacement go with no errors.
With some basic procedures and short training, it is possible to let junior data recovery technicians handle complex tasks. With the development of these tools, we are trying to eliminate the element of luck that usually accompanies the process of data recovery.
All HddSurgery tools are made out of duralumin using CNC lathe and EDM machine for cutting and shaping (HDDSMachining). After cutting, each tool gets assembled by hand and goes through 3 levels of quality check. On a video below, take a peek in our tool manufacturing process.
