Hello all. I am trying to recover data from a hard drive that is not working. (Laptop hard drive) Does anyone know of a reputable company on island, that can recover data.
95% photos.
Thank you!

Are you leaving the island soon? Can you describe how the drive stopped working (e.g. dropped in water, electrical surge, old age)? The bad news is that the complexity of recovering data can depend on the cause of the failure of the drive.

Another thought: Contact the chief information officer of the medical school in Cupecoy. They are probably the heaviest user of desk top computing services. Ask him/her for a recommendation. They may even have someone on staff who might help you.

I own companies on Sint Maarten and we in the past used MVG Computers in Cole Bay. They are knowledgeable and can do recovery usually.
