My name is Adrian. I’ve worked in the tech industry for the last few decades and regularly help people with computer disasters, including lost data.

I’ve faced quite a few data disasters since I started using computers since the 80s. About five times when crucial data was lost due to computer failure or human error. I was successful in recovering the data about half the time.

Many data recovery software providers claim a high recovery rate. But is that true? I tested 42 data recovery software products and documented my findings on this website.
