  • ATA security data recovery performed by experts in security and encryption

It is possible to use an ATA password with all modern hard disk storage devices and, once a password has been set, a user cannot gain access to the data held on a drive without the relevant credentials. This password is also encrypted and can only be decrypted with an algorithm present on the original drive only. As a result, data recovery professionals face a conundrum when asked to recover data from drives utilising this security measure.

Fields' technicians will therefore do the following when undertaking a free diagnostic on password protected drives:

  • Utilise in-house techniques to bypass the aforementioned algorithm;
  • Remove all ATA security from the media; and
  • Transfer the data to a stable device from which it can be backed up.

Worried your ATA password will prevent the full recovery of your data? Book a free diagnostic today and get a no-obligation quote by sending us an email or calling us on 0207 862 6349.
