Data Resus Photographic Competition Update

6th March 2017

Thank you to everyone who entered the Data Resus Photographic Competition and shared their favourite photos from 2016 and associated memories with us.

We received some fantastic and very diverse, photographs/memories which made judging especially hard. However when we re-visited the original brief ‘Your favourite photo from 2016 – the picture (the memory) that you would most hate to lose!’ there really could be only one winner…

CONGRATULATIONS to Becky Wiltshire from Lincolnshire in the UK and THANK YOU for sharing your beautiful photograph and story with us:

‘This photo was taken by myself of my 8 month old daughter meeting her great grandfather for the first time. 

My grandad is in residential care and suffers with dementia…being a military family we live over 3 hours away from home so it can be hard to get back to see family. 

Thankfully the day this photo was taken my grandad was is a semi good mood, he was mesmerised by his newest great granddaughter and she was by him too. They sat and looked at each other for the longest time, it was the calmest his carers had ever seen him….there’s a certain quality that babies bring out in everyone I suppose.

I turned this image into black and white as I felt it was more striking.’ 


Becky has won a £100 gift card, 32GB SafeToGo encrypted USB plus 10% off Data Resus photo or file recovery software.


All the amazing competition entries we received can be viewed on our Data Resus Facebook page.



Losing a photograph like Becky’s doesn’t bear thinking about. But should the unthinkable happen, and you lose your precious photos due to a corrupt hard drive, USB or SD card, DON’T PANIC!

Data Resus uses the latest generation software packages and hardware tools for recovering data – files and photos – from all types of media. We offer a ‘DIY’ style recovery software (with free online evaluation), and a custom send-in service for very sensitive, large, or difficult to recover data. Find out more at
