R3 Data Recovery was founded by Andy Butler, , he developed  the first independant high capacity Data Recovery Company in the UK 

R3 provides Server RAID, Hard Drive and Solid State / Flash memory data recovery services.


R3 has  a network of resellers and partner DR companies through Data Solutions UK  which since 2007 has been providing  data recovery services to small businesses  needing help recovering data,  fixing file corruption, and converting databases.

Andy has been a long campaigner for improved success rates and exposing those involved in  the Data Recovery Scams helped many consumers and businesses. 

Unfortunately he and his company became  victims  - read   "a hard drive broke my back"

Andy and the team were professional,friendly and their service efficient when retrieving my photographs from my memory card. It was expensive however the photographs were priceless to me so well worth it. I would recommend them to anyone with a similar problem.

We offer all types of Drive Imaging and Data Recovery with a Free Quotation and assessment of your
individual requirements. 

R3 Data Recovery Ltd was formed initially for forensic recovery but it was found that there was a call for a more cost effective data recovery service by many computer support companies which needed to provide prompt and safe services to their clients.
R3 Data Recovery Ltd now is retained by data recovery companies throughout the UK and worldwide.

UK Business, International Corporations as well as to home users were wanting
 a cost effective solution to their data loss situations - R3 Data Recovery Ltd has been continually refined to do just that.

The need to be able to recover sensitive or commercially valuable data or proof (without harming the original media) is important, and to achieve this we create an image of the drive before working
on retrieving on the data recovery (sometimes a rebuild or repair is needed to get the cloned image first).

We will not open your drive unless it is diagnosed as necessary, and we are campainiing against  the alarming rise in number of drives opened by some companies, without clean room certifications,  who have  damaged , scratched
 and even contaminated platters with finger prints not following clean room procedures .

Whilst there are a number of software utilities available which may be able to recover deleted files, it would be foolhardy to risk recovering data on a drive that has mechanical, electronic or media degradation
 problems. This may result in damaged drives and further cost rebuilding the drive or recovering the corrupt data. (you only need one chance
of a  recovery ..give yourself the best chance you can contact R3 Data Recovery  .)

Collection and delivery in London and Greater London area: We can arrange for the collection and delivery of the media from your home or place of work anywhere in the UK by UPS

R3 and we have  Apple Macintosh specialists available on 0800 999 3282

From my first contact with Andy he has shown nothing but professionalism and willingness to solve my problem. Very fast turnaround and helpful customer service. They helped me save a LOT of data, in less than a week. A 1.5TB was fully recovered after being told by other companies it was hopeless. Hope nothing like that happens to me again, but if it does I know exactly where to go. Excellent!

Andy Developed the first UK data recovery company to have had its Clean room tested passing ISO-3 (equivalent to the old Class 1) and surpassing the old Class100 standard so many companies say they work to yet so few have actually shown the certification. This has enabled us to recover drives sent back by others as “beyond recovery
