I have some important data on a USB flash drive & the flash drive has physically broken - the connector that fits to the PC has snapped off.  There's no way it will connect so I can access the data.

Unfortunately, my backup is on a Windows 8 laptop which has given up the ghost at the same time.

 

As I obviously need some kind of data recovery, can anyone please recommend a UK based service who will do a quick, reliable & low cost job?  I know I can Google this sort of thing, but I don't have too much money & would prefer to go with someone's recommendation.

 

Many thanks

Paul

Thanks for the tip but that's mainly to do with US based hard disk data recovery.

I'm looking for a tried & tested UK based USB flash stick data recovery recommendation.

Is there a specific reason that it has to be a UK application?

 

It would appear that I will not be able to help you. :thumbup2:
