What is the Cost of Data Recovery?

In order to provide the best possible service to our clients, we don’t like to make false promises – but some data recovery is cheaper than others.

Our data recovery team perform a free diagnosis on every device that enters the data recovery lab, typically within 24 hours on its arrival. After this point, a free diagnosis is performed, and a data recovery report provided along with a no-obligation quote to complete the work and get the data back. The question of “how much is data recovery?” is not a simple one, and depends on a variety of factors. By not making concrete promises on the spot, we feel this provides a better service for our customers.

If, for example, your car breaks down, or your boiler packs in. Phoning an expert in one of these fields and asking them how much it will coast to fix your car or boiler won’t yield many answers. What is the cause of the problem? What make it the car or boiler? How much will the parts cost?

Think of the cost of data recovery in this way. Factors that determine the cost of data recovery are as wide-ranging. What sort of device is it that you’ve brought into the data recovery lab? If it’s a hard disk drive, which were the standard storage device for years, the costs will be lower than newer storage media such as solid-state drives (SSDs). There are also legacy formats, including tape drives, that may require additional experts to be consulted. Then there’s the case of what is actually wrong with your device, and why can’t you access your data? A hard drive that has had files accidentally-deleted will cost considerably less than a hard drive that has been dropped in water.

Our call handlers and the data recovery technicians dealing with your devices are able to give you rough estimates, however; this is why it is important to provide as much information regarding your device when you get in contact with us. Again, we are not able to provide an exact price on the spot, but a rough estimate may be available. Remember, you won’t pay a penny until you agree on the no-obligation quote, and if your data isn’t returned, you’ll get a full refund.
