Here at MacUpgrades we have been dealing with Mac data recovery since 2005. Over the years we have rescued data from more drives than we care to count. These have been in all states of repair, some with very little damage, some requiring extreme measures. Over this time we have come to know the Mac HFS+ file system inside out; where Mac OS X puts user information and the tools which work well on Apple Mac Hard drives and, sometimes more importantly, those to avoid. We are experienced with Apple Filevault systems of encryption, including whole disk encryption and the special procedures which are necessary to recover data from these drives†(we will need your password) as well as all the usual iLife Apps (iPhoto databases, iMovie Projects) and Pro Apps (Aperture Master Vaults and FCP X Projects).
We know how important your data is to you and we will treat your failed drive with the utmost respect. We have a process that we work though with each failed drive, starting with the least invasive possible. This involves getting as much data as we can at each stage. We can even take that to opening up the hard drive and replacing damaged components if needed.
We use industry standard clean bench technology if ever a drive must be opened and have special low level firmware and disk imaging tools including the Deepspar Disk imager and the PC3000 to ensure that when we access data it is safe and that we are not repeating work already done to get back your files. We use sophisticated RAID systems to protect your data whilst we have it and prevent your privacy being compromised. We do keep your data for 14 days after a recovery is completed to protect against accidental loss before it is securely erased.
Choose Upgrades by Serial Number
Enter your serial number into the box below for specific upgrades for your machine. Each upgrade has been tested in the machine we list it for. Compatability is 100% guaranteed or your money back.
You can find your Mac's serial number in Apple System Profiler: Select the Apple Menu > About This Mac, then (depending on the version of OSX you are running) click the System Report button or the More Info button. This brings up System Profiler, and on the Hardware Overview that is displayed by default you should see your serial number, and be able to copy/paste it. The procedure does vary slightly between different versions of OSX.
If your Mac is not working, the serial number is printed on the computer casing but the location varies. Here are the main locations of serial numbers on Apple computers.
More detailed information on finding your serial number is available here on the Apple website.
