SQL, ORACLE & RDBMS Database Data Recovery:

Data stored in Access, SQL Server, SyBase, Exchange Server, Oracle and other databases maintained on networked Fileservers. Object & Relational database management technologies are fundamental to modern IT systems, often enhances the active applications run by the entire corporation.

UniRecovery is capable of database recovery from:

  • MS Access (.mdb).
  • MS SQL (.mdf, .dat)
  • Ms Visual FoxPro (.dbf)
  • Ms works databases (.wdb)
  • Paradox databases (.db)
  • Interbase and Firebird databases (.gdb, .ib, .fdb)
  • dBASE and FoxBase databases (.fpt)
  • Oracle databases and backups from Oracle 8i

1. Existing risks of Data Loss with SQL, Oracle RDBMS Databases


As individual media/drives in database servers suffer from the similar faults/failure as do drives in individual computers and workstations.

Experienced System Administrators are aware of the relational or object oriented database environment is fragile unless supported by comprehensive backups. Unfortunately, it is all too common for devices to become corrupt beyond the scope of DIY / routine recovery methods. Failures still occur in even the most well-configured system, such as:

  • Accidentally overwritten database files & devices
  • Accidentally deleted records
  • Backup files not recognizable by database engine
  • Database locked as 'suspect' preventing access
  • Deleted or dropped tables
  • Corrupted database files and devices
  • Damaged individual data pages

2. The Recovery Process


UniRecovery Data Recovery Labs technicians treat Database loss situations as Emergency with the upmost priority. An initial diagnosis outlining the fault and if the media device is accessible to our lab equipment. If so, the first priority is to clone animage of the data from accessible media onto UniRecovery media so that the damaged database devices and tables can be accessed.

If hardware problems, when there is an error message or operating system configuration problems have rendered the basic data tables inaccessible or damaged then UniRecovery technicians proceed just as they would for a Server/RAID recovery.

UniRecovery Data Recovery Labs technicians can then analyze the contents of the raw sector images to identify the tables and records containing your desired data. This data can then be extracted and the entire database rebuilt, if necessary.

Normal system maintenance routines are unable to recover all data in situations where underlying media failure or structural corruption has eliminated key pointers; indeed those routines will often exacerbate the damage.

UniRecovery Data Recovery Labs programmers have created a full set of software tools used by our technicians to analyze, fix & recover data from relational and object database systems. Once a recovery has been successfully performed, file and table lists are created and data validity is checked.

3. Recovery Pricing for Databases


UniRecovery's experience in these types of recoveries ranges from the most straightforward and basic all the way through project level cases that have taken months to resolve. As you may expect, no two data recovery scenarios are identical in all respects. Therefore, this uniqueness makes it impossible to give a realistic indication of pricing without knowing all of the facts for a particular case. Generally speaking, pricing starts at about £500 for the most basic and can be in the £6,000 and up range for extremely complex.

Over the phone, our highly trained Customer Service Consultants will be able to give you some idea of what pricing you would be looking at given your particular configuration and set of circumstances. Sending in your case for a no obligation evaluation will give us all of the information we would require to give you a firm quotation for the recovery of your data.

4. Turn-Around Time


Time is not always critical but most of the time it is! UniRecovery has geared its entire service to recover your data as fast as possible. When dealing with such a wide variety of problems, estimating time before the problem is diagnosed is difficult. That is why, each recovery case starts with a free evaluation.

The free evaluation is started immediately on receipt of the media and generally takes 2 to 24 hours to complete. The process involves several hours of work and testing. (Mirroring alone may take up to 24 hours of computer time with extensive re-tries for badly damaged devices.)

Complete recovery turn-around time including analysis and recovery is usually between 1 and 5 days. Some severe cases can take considerably more time.

Our hours of operation are 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday (All Labs), 9am to 5pm Saturday. If you have an emergency situation, we have technical staff on call for weekends and after hours in all locations.

Time estimates are based on procedures and expertise required to recover the data you require. You are not charged by the hour. A firm quote is provided for your approval following the evaluation.

Our Laboratories : UniRecovery Guarantees :


As a single speck of dust entering a hard disk could cause fatal results. It is larger than the distance between the read/write heads and the platter in a hard disk (40 microns, a human hair being 100 microns thick) and its collision with the Hard Disk head would be extremely detrimental.

Our advanced laboratories are equipped with Clean Rooms rated as ‘Class 1000, 100 & 10 ’ where there exists no more than 1000 particles; and ‘Class 100’ where there exists no more than 100 particles whereas with "Class 10", less than 10 particles of 0,5 µm found in our Cabim-Flow which is of "Class 10".

The air quality of the Clean Rooms complies with the applicable standards BS 5295, ISO 14644-4 and Federal Standard 209. Hard disk fabrication requires a ‘Class 100’ Clean Room and UniRecovery undertake all laptop hard drive recovery work in Clean Rooms ‘Class 10’.
