Attingo has its own research department for data carrier mechanics, chemistry, physics and electronics as well as the analysis of new logical storage formats.
Development and production of new tools for changing disk stocks, transplanting magnet disc stacks or adjustment and recostruction of read/write heads.
Special processes for reparation of hard drive liquid bearings and surfaces after fire or water damage, methods for reading out memory chips in sandwich construction.
Stabilisation of defective disk stocks, fine adjustment of read/write heads i
Methods for transplanting processors, hardware hard drive PCB ond control order manipulation.
Reverse engineering of new file systems and RAID controllers, development of data rescue software, reverse engineering of hard drive firmware
Attingo develops tools and software solutions. We reverse engineered all common RAID controllers and are able to simulate them virtually via software. Even complex RAID recovery cases can be processed in a little while.
Attingo also researches, reverse engineers and develops for data rescue projects on behalf of the client, for example with proprietary systems.
Manager of our research and development department is Peter Franck, who has more than 30 years of experience in the field of data rescue, inter alia as offical expert and UN weapons inspector for computer forensics.
The write/read heads inside a hard drive are floating only a few dozen nanometers (1000 times thinner than a human hair) over the magnet disks. Even the smallest particles like dust grains can cause the write/read heads to crash onto the data carrier surface. Therefore hard drives may only be opened in clean room laboratories.
Our special in-house tools and profound knowledge are needed to change the write/read heads or transplant the magnet disks. Attingo has modern clean room laboratories and well trained staff with longstanding professional experience in all subsidiaries (Hamburg, Vienna and Amsterdam).
To perform a successful data rescue all of our technicians have comprehensive knowledge and professional competence. All of our enigneers are trained in-house and get regular further training.
