If you have ever lost data to a virus, OS crash or a malicious user you know how frustrating having to recreate files, if that is even possible, can be. Take that a step further with business where you run the risk of disgruntled employees erasing files purposefully that can seriously damage a business and cost more than money.

Before I worked in the world of full time geeks I was an IT guy for a pharmacy. We had an employee erase files that we needed when she quit her job. The files could not be reproduced so we had to resort to sending the drive out to a lab for data extraction. The bill for the work was well into the hundreds of dollars, plus it was well over two weeks before the data was available again. Had the data been mission critical the company would have been out of business for the entire time it took for data retrieval.Seagate is stepping up and offering an application that can retrieve data from any non-damaged disk with a free demo to be sure it will find the files you need. All you need to do is download the application from the Seagate site and run it to recover the logical data from the drives. When executed the application allows you to view your data in a hexadecimal viewer and the application tells you if recovery is possible.
