Worthless or Priceless? This HP Pavilion dv6 laptop was brought in with a Toshiba laptop. The 2 laptops are 12 and 8 years old respectively. But they aren’t worthless. The owner has thousands of family photos saved in these 2 computers that needed to be recovered.
The owner had accidentally deleted photos on the Toshiba laptop thinking the photos had been uploaded to her iCloud photos. However, the photos did not show up in her iCloud.
The HP has a problem that it shows a white screen at startup. The Toshiba laptop is in working condition.
After some initial discussion, we worked out that there would be 2 options: recover the photos from the Toshiba laptop where the data was accidentally deleted, or attempt to recover the photos from the broken HP laptop.
The customer needed a custom solution for this. Manufacturers would not be able to offer such services.
Below are photos and video of the computers.
