Class 100 Clean Room Method

In case of mechanical failure, for data recovery, we must open the drive to replace parts, or perform other techniques necessary to recover data. It will be crucial that someone accomplishes the work in the most proper environment meeting Class 100 specifications.

The working components inside the hard drives are prone to damage when exposed to dust particles and other airborne contaminants.

Data Recovery cases that require head swaps or re-calibration, platter swaps, visual inspection. or involve head stiction. where a technical expert has to open the drive case. it must be done in a Class 100 cleanroom environment.

The read/write head assembly will be placed. just several nanometers above the platters. and are never supposed to come into contact with them. (they should note that a nanometer is a million times smaller than a millimeter). In case the assembly comes into contact, they can scratch the platter, permanently destroying your data.

It would then also mean that most bacteria couldn’t fit between the platters and the read/write head. It is to be imagined like that. you can know how delicate they are and we, therefore, consider every airborne particle. considering the space between the head and the platter on your hard drive.

Hard drive platters rotate several thousand times per minute. and because of which dust particles can cause a disastrous head crash which will be very damaging for your data.

Data Storage Solutions (DSS) has a cleanroom facility which is the most important factor for maintaining a controlled environment. We have understood well the importance of a cleanroom and have ensured cleanliness where airborne particulate matters are kept under check in the data recovery process. We are in possession of a Class 100 Data Recovery – Clean Room Method with an average count of 170.5mm particles per cubic foot.

We at DSS take pride in providing our clients with the safest terms in every possible way. We ensure to provide discretive and controlled access to your storage device, and also the safest possible environment in which we examine your media and worked on it.
