Press Release: DriveSavers Data File Recoveries for Apple Users Tops Six Billion

Celebrating over 25 years of recovering data for Apple users

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – MACWORLD/iWORLD 2012 (BOOTH #436) – January 26, 2012 – DriveSavers, the worldwide leader in data recovery services, today announced that the company has recovered over six billion data files for Apple users since the company’s inception over twenty-five years ago. Six billion data files are equivalent to the amount of data stored by the largest databases in the world, such as the Library of Congress. Videos, digital photos, financial files, personal documents, address book contacts, calendar entries and music are examples of the types of data that is recovered.

Scott Gaidano, president of DriveSavers, lost business critical files on a Mac floppy disk many years ago. Disappointed and frustrated, Gaidano along with Jay Hagan, decided to attempt to recover the data which lead to the two gentlemen building a business to help others rescue their data. Today, DriveSavers recovers data from iPadsiPhones, iPods and essentially any storage device (Apple or non-Apple related) that has suffered common or catastrophic data loss. DriveSavers now is a pioneer in the data recovery industry by demonstrating best practices and methods for recovering data safely and securely.

As innovative Apple products continue to emerge and become more mainstream with businesses and consumers, DriveSavers anticipates that more critical data will be stored on these amazing devices…and lost – due to user error, physical damage, mismanagement and software or hardware failure. And, we anticipate that recovering the data will become more and more complex, especially with the use of SSD technology in many of these products such as the iPad and iPhone. DriveSavers has more expertise, technology and capabilities to successfully recover data from Flash memory-based solid-state devices than any other data recovery company.

This year at Macworld/iWorld, DriveSavers will display a special enhanced version of its world-famous museum of “disk-asters” featuring a laptop that was crushed by the earthquake in Haiti. In addition, DriveSavers in-house authority on solid state drive (SSD) data recovery, Chris Bross, will give hands-on demonstrations at DriveSavers booth (#436) on the complexity of data recovery for SSDs and other storage devices, and will sharing his fascinating experiences with data lost and data found.
