Online Data Recovery Information


hard drive recovery training

There is no automated software in the world that can recover from every situation.  There are times when a manual approach must be taken.  We teach you the knowledge needed to do just that.  The course also covers working with Raid's like the professionals.  Most Raid recoveries are not from physical damage, they are from logical issues that cannot be fixed with automated tools.

All students will receive our Power Pack and three free logical recoveries performed by DTIData.  You will also become a preferred data recovery partner which grants you discounts on physical recoveries.

For more information on this training class please call Jacqui Best at 866-438-6932 or 727-345-9665.
