DataLAB was contacted by a marine electronics vendor. They were working with a commercial fishing vessel that had partially sunk on a bar, crossing off the west coast of New Zealand in shallow waters. The vessel had a computer on board that stored vital and valuable GPS coordinates for fishing gear that had just been baited and left offshore.
The ship had taken on a lot of water and the computer was swamped with sandy and corrosive seawater. The system was delivered to DataLAB and we began by removing the hard drive to see just how far corrosion had set in in the days since the ship took on water. We further inspected the inner chamber of the drive using our specialised positive-pressure clean room environment to see if any sea water had penetrated the drive's internals.
Our client was lucky. The outer components of the hardware were a write off but the internal chamber had not been breached…just. Our team were able reconstruct the hardware to a point the drive could be cloned and the vital data saved.

“Massive thank you to the team for retrieving my files for me. Had such an easy experience for something that could have been a stressful time. Staff were calm and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand but not patronising (as you can find in the tech industry). Appreciate the courier drop service in Wellington and found your service easy to access with no wait time on the phone ! Thanks again!”
