What’s the cost of data recovery?

without comments

It’s a question I’m asked a lot. I answer the question at the bottom of this post. First I’d like to share with you some example data recovery enquiries we receive…

Broken hard drives need data recovery

I have a Seagate external hard drive 4tb which stopped being recognised by the computer however the drive is spinning as I can hear the spinning plates. I tried it on two different docking stations and I get the same result. I would like to ask what is the cost of recovering the data.

Hi, I have a HGST 1tb 5400 drive in an enclosure. I dropped it from my sofa and now the computer wont recognise it. I got a local computer guy to have a look and he said its beyond him and says the drive isn’t spinning at all. I have tried it with a different enclosure, cable and computer. ( the drive isnt completely full, however I’m unsure how much is on it). I’m wondering how much it would cost to retrieve everything on it? 1TB Hard drive making a clicking noise.

I would be obliged if you could tell me how much it would cost to recover CR2 files on an external hard drive ( approx 300gb )
What are CR2 files? CR2 files are produced by Canon cameras. They contain the raw image data of a photograph taken on a Canon camera. These files are then read by photo processing software such as Photoshop where the image can be altered to the taste of the photographer.

I have a 1.5TB Samsung HD154UI that from doing mechanical noises moved onto being totally dead, I really want to recover as much as possible on what’s on the hard drive. I’d like to get an idea of a price and whether you think it’s possible or not, it’s not urgent.

Hello, could you give me an idea of the price for data recovery?The hard drive is from an old computer, which failed about 5 years ago. The drive had started clicking on startup, and eventually the computer wouldn’t boot; I recovered some data with it plugged in as an external drive, and haven’t touched it since.
It was an iMac hard drive, 250GB Western Digital Caviar SE, with an additional windows partition from dual booting. The windows data is less important, so if that would end up priced separately I’d like to know. I can’t remember the partition sizes though!

Broken phones need their data retrieving

iphone x broken – unfixable says Apple. I’d like to retrieve some photos and video files if possible. The phone screen is completly blank, but the phone still functions, siri and calls, i would like the phone to be backed up, can this be done?

Broken screen with password on phone, screen has been changed and still not worked, no way of getting info from phone because of the passcode.

So, what’s the cost of data recovery?

There’s a rule to go by: you get what you pay for. A local computer repair shop may advertise their data recovery service, but the service they provide will be far different that the service offered by a professional data recovery company.

A professional data recovery company providing a professional data recovery service will charge somewhere in the region of £500 for a hard drive data recovery, and £300 for a phone data recovery. Their costs are significantly higher than those quoted by computer repair shops, but the data recovery services provided by computer repair shops is awful. If the problem is not a simple one to rectify and retrieve the data from, a computer shop will most probably ruin any chance of data recovery. My advice is shop smart and use a professional data recovery company when you need a professional data recovery service.
