Verbatim Data Recovery


In 1969, Information Terminals Corporation was founded by Reid Anderson, and officially was renamed Verbatim in 1978. Verbatim has always been prominent in the growth of data storage technology. Even today they are easily one of the most recognizable names in the business. They had originally started by developing their own cassettes with an extremely stable polycarbonate casing. They later applied this knowledge to creating a special shell for 8-inch floppy disks, to protect them from dirt, dust and damage. Within their first media factory in 1976, the disks they created were given an exclusive Teflon coating, and were available in a smaller 5.25-inch format.

The company continued to broaden, and developed an international reputation as a manufacturer of first-rate storage media. In 1990, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation became the proud owners of Verbatim, and currently trades under the name of Mitsubishi Kagaku Media. They helped innovate and create Super Eutectic Recording Layer technology (SERL), which has been used for CD-RWs and other rewritable media. Verbatim was one of the few producers to include all popular formats in its portfolio, including many award-winning products. They began manufacturing external hard drives in 2007, and more recently began venturing into Solid State Drives with its SSD Express Card.

Common Problems

Despite the company’s lucrative and extensive background, their products can develop problems from time to time.

For their hard drives, they can either suffer from logical or physical issues. Obviously if the data is corrupted by a virus, malware or some other malicious program, it can put the drive at risk. Occasionally it can suffer trauma through tampering, botched repairs, a sudden drop or any other accidental cause. If you hear any kind of clicking, turn off the device immediately and call us. Leaving or turning it back on can cause damage to the platters and result in further data loss.

For their Flash drives and SD cards, they can become damaged, corrupted, or in general just stop working after a period of time. Most people assume that data from these items cannot be recovered but always call us before discarding the drive! They are more sensitive to physical damage and can suffer from improper insertion techniques, excessive pressure or temperatures, condensation or exposure to other contaminants.
