CDR website content plagiarised

It appears that the content of the CDR – Manchester Data Recovery Services – website was plagiarised recently. An IT support company in Greater Manchester had started offering data recovery services, which on the face of it looked suspiciously familiar. Ironically CDR only became aware of this because the IT support company in question emailed us to ask what trade agreements CDR could offer to handle any data recovery enquiries they received. This was because they were unable to perform data recovery on most failed devices. It was only then that we checked out their website to find that CDR’s content had been copied.

Not only that but the IT support company had even failed to remove the ‘CDR’ company name from their content. If you are going to plagiarise then it might be worthwhile to employ a proofreader!

The company were quick to remove the content, but not apologetic. Fortunately for the IT company, CDR chooses not to be overly litigious. We will take it as a compliment, but it also allows us to remind people that whilst many companies offer data recovery services, only a few do it to a high technical standard. Often when conducting data recovery on a failed device there is the opportunity to make the failure worse and make the data unrecoverable. We suggest that you do plenty of research on where you send your failed hard disk drive (HDD), solid state disk (SSD) or failed RAID array. It is also worth noting that there are a number of data recovery scams in the UK.

Please contact us if you require a company which is dedicated to providing high-quality data recovery services.
