One of my users had the hard disk in his Laptop fail, his last backup was six months ago so the data on the laptop was irreplaceable, I got nothing out of the drive other that a few clicking sounds, I called Fields Data Recovery, the explained what they do, gave me a quote and had the faulty drive collected and returned all the data on disc. Needless to say the user was over the moon as was i with the service.
We had a couple of machines stolen and they had been factory reset ready for the perps to sell on. Little did they know we could track them so we got the machines and the perps!!
Fields Data recovered critical data from the laptops SSD so that business could resume.
I would definately recommend them as they did the work quickly and competently. If we should be in a similar position again, they would be my first call.
They provided a fast service after couriering DATA Drive to Hammersmith on one occasion and then onward to Wales !
But on another the Diagnosis DID take some time before we received in notepad form the list of files they said were retrievable - However these were NOT readable on this occasion once transferred to an external USB device and it did prove difficult to talk to the same technician on each phone call chasing up progress...
Had read some bad reviews about fields, so was a little nervous about going ahead with the service, but I really couldnt fault it at all.
Very fast service, very professional, and got back around 95-99% of all my data. Even uploaded it to FTP so I didnt have to wait on DVDs coming in the post.
Would most definately recommend and wouldnt hesitate to use them again if needed.
I've used Fields data recovery several times over the last few years and they have always delivered a fast an efficient service with a fixed upfront price.
I would definitely recommend using them.

Level of service is always great and everyone are always polite. This time round we had trouble with the loan hard drive where it would not recognize. We had to send this back before our data could be put back onto the hard drive. Would have been good for another hard drive all ready to send to us whilst we send the one that did not work back.
Not a massive issue as previously everything is very quick and efficient. We have used Fields Data a few times and would definitely go back and use them again.
As I couldn't do without the information on my external hard drive. I was desperate to get the information recovered. Although I was not happy about the cost of the recovery I knew I had no other choice, however in saying this the service was amazing. Staff were completely honest from the beginning and all information that I wanted was recovered quickly. Hopefully I will never have to use them again but if I did I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Hi, I had cause to use Fields Data Recovery when the hard drive died in my Admin pc and we discovered that the back up service we had been using, and paying for, had not worked. I work in a school and there is a huge amount of sensitive pupil information and finance information that is used and needed on a daily basis, a local school who had the same problem had taken nearly 6 months to input all their data again and so I was very worried about the situation. An IT engineer from Arvato, working for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, put me in touch with Fields, who were fantastic from the start. They understood my panic and were very helpful and understanding. Within a week of receiving my hard drive they retrieved the data and returned it to me on a disk to be uploaded. Having had some sleepless nights, it was great to see the data restored and I cannot recommend Fields highly enough, they were very professional, friendly, efficient and I cannot thank them enough for the service given.
The external hard drive which had all the family's photos old and new were saved(183gb). Just Crashed so to speak. I couldn't access it. try the Googling Data Recovery was the advice from the lady in the family. Which I did was met with every type of suggestions. Saw Fields Data Recovery. Accessed the Website. Followed the instructions and emailed the problem etc. Within minutes had a email response followed up by a phone call. Advised what to do, sent the Drive by special delivery.The rest is history within five days over 90% of the data was recovered and sent back to me with two new drives. (Back up to the Back up). No complaints - when I needed help to initialise one of the new drives - that was forth coming. Great Service start to finish!
The data that I had recovered was 6 months worth of university work that I didn't have backed up. I was recommended to use your company as they have previously used you and had great success. The customer service was outstanding although for what I used the company for I could have found cheaper options. This is not any complaint to you as I know that you deal with larger firms with more important data. Thanks for all your support and allowing me now to pass my degree.
As an IT company we get all sorts of problems given to us, one we could not solve was a hard drive that stopped and it had a lot of research data on it. We tried it in another machine and it remained stopped - would not spin up, the problem was outside our expertise.
On investigation of the HDD recovery companies in the SE of the UK I chose Fields Data Recovery for a number of reasons, this was not a mis-placed judgement as they were quick and efficient in completing the work, and gave a 100% recovery of the data vital to our client.
From our experience I have no hesitation in recommending this company to others in a similar situation.
I own a small chain of repair shops and I have used fields for our customers damaged hard disk drives. Never had a problem and Fields have always delivered. They may not be the cheapest recovery centre but you get what you pay for and if your data is important to you then I recommend Fields any day!
Hugely expensive, but if you have vital information on a crashed hard-drive the costs pale into insignificance. You could buy a new lap-top, but if the data is vital then Fields are an excellent company to deal with.
Literally - the data they recovered for me was my 'Life'. Photographs, speadsheets, documents, music, memories - all recovered, all invaluable, and who knows what my wife would have done if I (a computer consultant!) had to explain to her that all the stuff we had accumulated over the past few years was gone forever!
Naively I had failed to backup - not just for weeks, but for months/years - it won't happen to me! Well it did - disk crash, unable to boot, unable to access any data.
So I contacted a few Recovery Companies, in fact I tried one, but they sent the disk back - no joy, then fortunately I came across Fields Data via an Internet search.
A week or so later, at a very reasonable cost, all my data was returned on cd's and my life was back on track.
Thanks Fields Data Recovery, would recommend to anyone and everyone, but hopefully I won't be using them again, or will I?
One of my clients had a PC in their office that just wouldn't boot up. So when I had a look at it for them It was obvious that there was a problem with the hard drive. After trying many recovery programs and apps that I use, I had to report back to them that the drive was damaged and that recovery of their data looked unlikely. The client was flabbergasted as all of his current and past customers and clients details were on that drive. This information is essential for the running of his buisiness. Yes, and you guessed it, he had no backup. So after phoning around many of the data recovery companies available, I came across Fields Data Recovery.
Not only were they the most competitve, and there would be no fee if there was no data, but I kinda felt reasured when I spoke to them that there was a high percentage of recovering the data. So, I went back to my client with the price should they recover any data, and he was quite happy to go ahead (not that he had much choice). I sent the drive off as per Fields instructions.
I was notified at every part of the recovery process, from receiving the drive until the data was recovered. I was then sent a directory of the recovered data as well as a couple of samples.This looked good, the samples were perfect and the file listing was excellent. My client was then happy to pay the recovery fee and get his data sent up on discs. When they arrived, he was delighted, it was 100% succesfull, the cost was excellent, and the speed at which this was all done was superb (a matter of only a few days), and the communication with the company was outstanding.
If this ever happens again ther will be no need to shop around data recovery companies, I will go straight to Fields Data Recovery and would certainly recommend them to anyone.
My 300 Gbyte hard disk, containing a backup of hundreds of hours of stock footage from underwater filming got itself in a twist, nasty clicking sounds from the drive head and no access to the data.
The drive was sent off to Fields Recovery, all data bar one file was recovered, put on to a new drive and back to me within a week, below the initial estimate supplied. Very straight forward service, none of the usual cloaks and daggers around costs and time scales.
I'd hate to put myself in a situation where I had to give them repeat custom, although if the worst were to happen again I'd give them a shout without hesitation.
Data recovery is an expensive option for those who fail to backup. I run an I.T company and would always use Fields simply because they are the most affordable I've found. Data can't always be recovered but if it can they will do it!
I filled in a form showing interest online and was contacted by phone very soon after. The operator seemed to know his stuff and gave me a ballpark figure for the disk recovery. The disk was picked up and I was contacted a second time and a procedure described. I have to say I didn't understand the technicalities of this description and the cost for this next stage seemed more than was originally mentioned but I decided to take a chance and proceeded. I was a little disappointed with the manner in which the recovered data came back. It was held on 12 DVD/CD's fair enough but different parts of the same set of data were on different disks (e.g. my iphoto library). Never-the-less I did get back some valuable data and overall think it was worth doing.
Fields recovered critical data that was on laptop hard drive - quickly - and kept me up to date as they did so. they did a good job.
We have been using this company for a few years now and have always found them to be very efficient and they keep us informed at every stage of the process. Very rarely are they unable to recover data. We also find them very competitive in their pricing.
Fields Data Recovery have performed a few recovery jobs for me and on each occasion all data has been recovered perfectly. This includes normal documents such as Word and Excel files but also things like photographs, music, iTunes library, etc.
Great service and they gave me a full list of what they could recover before I went ahead.
I would recommend them without reservation.
I rang up on the Friday and when I explained that I had vital university work on my hard-drive that was due in for monday, I was told that they would put me as an emergency so I would be dealt with faster.
I had a phone call later on saying that it was underway and should be ready for the next day, Saturday.
Saturday morning I had a phone call saying they had recovered my data and an email was sent showing how much data had been recovered.
The data recovered was 95% which was excellent.
I was told that I could pick it up at 4pm that day.
Payment was easy and fast, done over the phone and I collected my data at 3pm, earlier than I was told.
Everything I needed for university was on the 3 CD's I was given.
The staff were really friendly and keen to help and advise me!!
Would use this company again if needed!!
I received a CD with all my data within 24 hours!!!
My only criticism would be the price. It was expensive but was worth the money!!!
Incredibly impressed by all dealings with Fields Data Recovery, and very relieved and grateful that they were able to recover very precious data from a severely damaged hard drive (something a number of other companies I contacted before coming across Fields Data Recovery had been unable to do)
My pilot son lost 3 years of files when his hard disk crashed, including important personal files and treasured photos of friends and visits. (He had backed them up on a cheap external hard drive, but that wouldn't open). I tried several local computer help companies, who all said " it's all gone, mate, unless you want to spend thousands on rebuilding the disk ".
Then I found Field Data Recovery on the web, spoke to Adam who said, "send it to us, we can do most things..." , and they did! Recovered 95% of what was lost, quickly and without fuss. Even sent a file list before doing the expensive work so we could check whether it was worth going on, and it was. Cost a bit, nowhere near as much as we'd feared, and service was quick and responsive. I would certainly use them again, if I had to, but we're both a bit more careful now.
I will use Fields Data Recovery again as they did exactly what they promised.
I had a recovery report within 24 hours and the data the next day.
Cheaper than some other well-known companies and able to provide cleanroom and RAID recovery services, I have used Fields many times over the last 6 or 7 years and no serious problems, they do try to sort things out when there's an issue with the recovered data.
Very dodgy company, charged me for a data recovery when they said the price would be 97, then jacked it up to 224. I asked for my hard drive back and they told me there would me "more damage" if they sent it back and I didnt pay!!!
Absolute nightmare scammers. I Googled them and saw that they are run by Fields Group Ltd and a guy called <private data removed>.
This Fields Data Recovery that is based in Wales is getting hard drive from all over the place, from USA, Europe and probably Canada.
I stupidly looked for reviews online AFTER I sent in my hard drive, and I couldn't find ONE single review after days of searching. They took my money and seemed to have damaged my hard drive.
Their tactics are the same with everyone. Once they ask you to pay up for parts, they pretend they do something and end up with the same news to everyone..NOTHING COULD BE RECOVERED.
Check out this website I came across http://http://fields-data-recovery-exposed.com/
The WHOLE SITE is dedicated to these CROOKS!
Please, if you value your data. STAY THE HELL AWAY!!!!!!!! YOU WILL NOT GET ANYTHING RECOVERED, GUARANTEED. FORGET ABOUT HOW CHEAP THEY MAY SEEM, YOU'RE GOING TO PUT YOURSELF IN A GREAT DEAL OF STRESS!
Unfortunately I fell for the scam from Rapid data, wish I googled the reviews before sending off my external drive, but I was desperate to get my data back and they seemed so friendly on the phone.
Sent off my drive, was told the most expensive repair would be £300, which I thought ok as I had 190gb on my drive. Then they get back to me, quoting serious issues with my drive and the price would now be £425+ vat+delivery to recover 80gb of files. They emailed me the file list in an attachment, but none of those showed the size. When I told them I would think about it and call them back, the pressure started saying that they are really busy, can only keep my files on their servers for a day so I need to make a decision. They also reduced the price to £320+vat plus delivery, all ended up costing about £390. I paid, then after about an hour I got cold feet and called them to cancel. Was told the work has already started and could not be stopped. Whatever. They promised to deliver in three days and so far so good - the package arrived when they said it would.
What I got was an internal hard drive for which I had to go out and buy and enclosure costing £30, in order to connect the drive to my computer. I was told once I return their drive, mine would be sent back..... yeah right.
First - the so called recovered files - loads of them were just empty folders with nothing in them. Then loads of the files that had something in them had some unreadable unix files that I could not access. I deal with high-res photography and needed some of the images that were not backed up on discs, so imagine my horror when loads of those photographs were "recovered" as a negative? Many high res photos size 100mb each are in the form of negative and unreadable!
Tried calling and emailing, got one email back that customer services would be contacting me regarding my concern. Fat chance, heard nothing! In the end I gave up, sent back their drive so at least I could get my own drive back to give it to someone who could actually do the job, but so far no drive and no word from Rapid data. My drive cost me £200 so I could do with it back to have it repaired.
Luckily paid by cc so called them so they froze the amount pending the investigation. Now I just have to prove somehow that the data I got was not what I was told I'd get.
So yes, another unhappy customer.
This is the most unacceptable company I have come accross. They never phone when they say they will, scare you about unretrievable data, take your money when infact very little has been done and never return the hardware sent. Trading Standards must get involved.
Don't go near these guys if you value your data; they are scam merchants and from my experience and those of others I have corresponded with, exist to rip people off. Seriously - ask around for recommendations, phone any other data recovery and ask their opinion on Fields/Rapid Data Recovery, search the net, be prepared to spend more money - avoid avoid avoid!
Beware: All of these reviews are fake and have sprung up because of their director's attempt to suppress any negative reviews about his company. Use your common sense and check the dates, they have already been banned from FreeIndex and have attempted to remove negative posts elsewhere but have failed.
Therefore they have posted a flood of fake reviews in a short space of time in an attempt to deceive the public. Check the IP addresses, the dates and times, the pattern and the test is identical to the shill posts that Fields post all over the internet as well as on their own website (fake 97% approval rate and fake testimonials).
