Technical info

If you’re technically-minded, or you’re thinking of becoming a trade partner, this page is for you. Otherwise, please be warned that reading this information may cause your eyes to glaze over, and there’s even the possibility of a little drool.

Our equipment

The equipment in our lab is very different to conventional computer repair/servicing workshops. Most of our recovery hardware comes from Russia and Canada, along with our Homeland Security-based forensic software from the USA. To protect both our own trade secrets, and our clients’ confidentiality, we unfortunately can’t let anyone further than our reception area. In fact, we can’t even tell you the names of some of the equipment below. But if you’re in the IT or computer trade, we’re always happy to nurture business relationships. If you’re interested in our trade pricing and partnerships, please call 0800 77 77 22 or email Darren for further information.
