Company History

The story of Rapid Recovery began soon after the turn of the new millennium, when three industry leading British digital forensic investigators met to discuss an idea that had been haunting them for months. Digital forensics as a science had made rapid strides in the last few years, benefiting law-enforcement agencies tremendously.

There were new technological breakthroughs and advances. Unique software capabilities and algorithms had been developed by engineers to track down perpetrators of digital crime by tracing their data trail and recovering even the last possible shred of information from storage devices that seemed destroyed beyond salvage.

The question occupying the investigators’ minds; “Why not make available the cutting-edge capabilities and latest advances of digital forensic software to everybody as a potent data-recovery software?” Grounded in this idea, Rapid Recovery was established in 2002 with the mandate to incorporate the deep insights and technical knowledge of the founders (all digital forensic investigators) into readily-available, and comparatively inexpensive, data recovery software that anybody could use with ease.

To launch the Do It Yourself (DIY) data recovery software, Rapid Recovery’s technical team put before itself many benchmarks and objectives. The foremost was that the software was to have the ability to successfully tackle any kind of data recovery challenge faced by the typical user. For this, the awesome recovery capabilities of the latest digital forensic programmes were sought to be transferred to the new software.

One of the other objectives of the team of developers was to make Rapid Recovery totally non-destructive. A special process was invented to protect user data from self-inflicted damage in the unlikely event that the software was not able to recover it. The key to this was to develop Rapid Recovery as a strictly “read only” programme that makes no changes to the data-storage media.

The Rapid Recovery software was accordingly designed and developed by digital forensic specialists and bench-tested by engineers specialising in data recovery. Due to this, there is hardly any data-recovery challenge that Rapid Recovery DIY software cannot meet on its own.
