Did you know that data can be recoverable after you have deleted it from your computer? Data can be recovered even if you think it’s gone for good! Our computer repair Glasgow team can help you recover files or get rid of them entirely.

Why Do I Need This Service?

You might think that getting rid of your data is the last thing you’d want to do but if you’re passing your device to someone else then this is a service that you need.
Though you may think that you have gotten rid of all your user data but in actual fact it can be recovered. Simple deletion isn’t enough, a full data recycling service is required to really scrub your device of any information. This prevents the data being recovered by another person.

With our data recycling service, the data is deleted to International Secure Deletion standards, which is the standard used by the UK Government and other corporate bodies. This is held to the HMG IS5 standard, which is the equivalent to shredding and sanitising your files.
Think of all the files that you have on your device and just imagine them falling into the wrong hands. Even if you know the person that you are selling a device to, you wouldn’t want them to have access to all of the information on your device.


When we complete this service, we will give you a certificate with the serial number of your device upon it. This is your proof of deletion and you can rest assured that the service has been performed correctly and fully.
Then, you can sell your device or pass it along to another user without worrying who has access to your data. Get in touch with us for more information on this service.

  • We received excellent advice after a prompt return of our phone call to Laptopdirect: we had a number of faults to our laptop which we could not personally resolve and Simon's ease with our IT problems and his further patient counsel got us and our laptop/printer back on track - thoroughly recommended.

  • We used laptops direct service in October 2014. Very happy with the service, would use it again. Very professional and really easy - our technician came round to our house at a time that suited us. Felt much safer than having to send parts off to be fixed elsewhere. Great job!
