If you are in the market for data recovery services or methods, you hear all sorts of amazing promises from snake oil salesmen. Recovering lost data, regardless of its source, requires a knowledge of science and data. Here is the simplest way to explain it: you cannot recover what not’s there, you can only find what’s lost.

When I was doing my own research on data recovery services I saw so much “fake news” it’s almost unreal. Magic software that brings back 95% corrupted data? Alien algorithms that reconstruct 3-hour long video files? Not possible.

I debunk all of those data recovery myths on this site, so you can learn how to deal with data emergencies and choose the best recovery method for your issue.
