Experts at recovering valuable data for more than 27 years, DriveSavers
offers Digital Forensics and Electronic Discovery (eDiscovery) as
legally defensible data recovery services that can be used to aid the
legal community. The company's certified computer forensic specialists
are able to quickly and efficiently process information and recover
electronically stored information (ESI (News - Alert)).
In November 2013, two DriveSavers digital forensic investigators
testified in the prosecution of Franklin Davis, who was charged with the
murder of 16-year-old Shania Gray. The data that DriveSavers was able to
recover from Gray's destroyed iPhone was vital to convict Davis, who is
now facing the death penalty.
Davis, who had already been charged for sexually assaulting Gray, lured
Shania-his family's babysitter-to a meeting in Carrollton, Texas, where
he killed her to prevent her from testifying. Gray received text and
social media messages from Davis, who was posing as a private
investigator for the rape trial.
The iPhone, which was discovered in a pond near the victim's bdy, was
destroyed to the point where a federal government forensic lab was
unable to retrieve the necessary information for prosecution.
The phone was shipped to DriveSavers for a secondary attempt at
retrieving the critical data. The company was able to perform a complete
recovery of the iPhone's data that was key in the outcome of Davis's
DriveSavers is able to recover ESI from nearly any physically damaged or
mechanically failed device including computers, PDA's, cell phones, USB
Flash Drives, digital camera cards, hard drives, RAIDs and enterprise
