DVR Examinations & Recovery
Unfortunately, manufacturers often change chipsets, firmware, and other components within the same model number, so there is no way to guarantee recovery. We only work on DVRs that have a hard drive, and about 95% of those are able to be recovered.
Garrett Discovery is a digital forensics lab, and upon request can provide a certification of extraction and file inventory at no cost.
No, we extract the videos in a high-quality format that is playable using most common players. In addition, we include a copy of VLC Player for MAC and Windows on the portable hard drive.
If the file has been overwritten, it can’t be recovered. Otherwise, we will provide it to you. All videos, regardless of location or size, are extracted. In a typical DVR, this is hundreds to thousands of videos.
We ship all videos on a portable USB 3.0 hard drive, along with a video player that can be plugged into a Windows or MAC to view.
