How much does data recovery cost?

To provide you with an accurate quote for your data recovery, we first have to evaluate your drive. In this process our technicians diagnose the cause of the data loss, the complexity of the damage, and the data recovery steps needed to successfully recover your data. This helps us to provide you with a detailed data recovery quote. Once the evaluation is completed, you will receive a fixed price quotation for your recovery.

If you accept our quote, we immediately start data recovery on your drive. Should you wish to not proceed with the recovery, we will return your drive. Please note that the costs for return shipping are to be paid by the customer.

Evaluation costs

We provide three different evaluation services. You choose an evaluation service to suit your needs depending on the urgency level of your recovery. Our detailed Evaluation is then conducted by our data recovery technicians in our lab. Upon completion of the evaluation we will provide you with a quote for the recovery of your data.

Please note, in rare cases where data recovery is not successful, the costs for prioritized evaluation cannot be refunded. This is due to the parts and labour already invested in the data recovery.
