Data recovery industry leader offers services to Maui, HI residents with damage related to fire.

(NOVATO, Calif., August 24, 2023) DriveSavers, the worldwide leader in data recovery, today announced it will provide free data recovery services to residents of Maui, HI, who have lost critical data as a result of the recent fires.

This free data recovery service is available for victims of the Maui fires and resulting property damage. DriveSavers is donating time, resources, and years of expertise to provide up to $1,000,000 in data recovery services. The free service includes external hard drives, Mac and Windows computers, iPhones, Androids, flash drives, camera cards, and other storage devices damaged during this devastating event. The offer is limited to one device per business or household and does not extend to multi-drive devices like RAIDs.

Many of these devices will have both fire and liquid damage due to fire relief efforts. Because exposure to water and air causes corrosion on circuitry, the best chance of data recovery is for customers to contact DriveSavers immediately to receive a free shipping label to our lab in California.

“DriveSavers is known worldwide for recovering data from severely traumatized devices, including those that have been burnt, submerged in water, crushed, or dropped,” said Scott Moyer, president of DriveSavers. “We offer our expertise and service to those who have lost irreplaceable data due to the Maui fires, free of charge.”

People with devices damaged by recent Maui wildfires should be aware that the data on their devices may be lost permanently. The recent fires were extremely hot—hot enough to melt cars—and this heat can melt the parts of a device that store data. For example, the platters inside a hard drive or the chips inside a solid-state drive or smartphone can melt beyond recovery. In some cases, it may be impossible to recover the data from the devices. See the provided photos for examples of recoverable vs. unrecoverable fire-damaged devices.

Those who require data recovery should call DriveSavers to discuss the recoverability of your device immediately at 1 (800) 440-1904. Data recovery advisors are available by phone seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Due to the type of damage we expect to see with these devices, this offer expires on October 31, 2023, or when the value of received recoveries reaches $1,000,000.
