Macintosh Data Recovery

Do you have an old Mac that you can no longer access due to a failed power supply or internal component? Do you have a stack of Macintosh-formatted floppy disks that you no longer have a compatible drive for? Do you have a SCSI hard drive that you can’t connect to your current Mac? Stop panicking! VintageAppleMac.com can help you to recover your data!

With a wide collection of vintage Macintosh hardware, spanning the 68K and PPC “Classic Mac” pre-OSX era, and a huge collection of period software and hardware peripherals, we have the tools and the skills to give you the best chance of recovering your data.

Whatever old media you have, there’s an excellent chance that the data within can be accessed and duplicated, and then even converted to formats that can be viewed on modern Mac and Windows computers.

We can salvage data from;

  • Floppy Disks
  • SCSI Hard Drives
  • IDE Hard Drives
  • SATA Hard Drives
  • Zip Disks
  • Jaz Disks
  • CDs
  • Other formats/media also considered

Recovered data will be delivered to you in a zip file via email or cloud, unless we agree otherwise or unless the nature of the data demands a bespoke solution.

Data Recovery services are charged at a rate of £25 per hour, with a minimum charge of 1 hour.

We will speak via phone or email before commencing the job and agree a likely required budget. Once I receive the media to recover data from, I will perform a survey to ascertain the precise scope of the project and give you a firm and final quote for the works for you to agree or decline. The survey will consume the first hour minimum charge. As an example, a recent project to recover and convert 40 text documents from half-a-dozen floppies took 4 hours in total to complete.

Please do get in touch to have a chat about your lost data and how we can recover it!
