Data Recovery Cost for Hard Drive, RAID, Servers, SSD & Flash Drives

The most common question when it comes to data recovery is regarding the data recovery cost or charges that are applicable. The data recovery price-list always depends on the following 3 factors:

  1. Kind of Media / Drive: Laptop or Desktop and Portable hard disk drives (HDD) / SSD / SSHD / Server recovery or RAID-like SAS and SCSI hard drives / Flash drive like memory cards or SD cards, every storage media has to be handled differently and the charges are different too.
  2. Kind of Damages on Media: Either basic Logical issues, PCB damages, Firmware, CRC Errors, Media or Physical damages, Water or Fire damages and data recovery cost varies on how simple or how complex is the issue.
  3. Technology and Time Dedication, Data Recovery Levels: The logical issues can be completed in 1 or 2 days time at cheapest cost, hardware level issues like firmware or CRC errors would take about 2 to 5 days of time frame at medium or low cost, physical issues might take about 5 to 15 days of time and spare drives during the recovery process, for which prices vary depending of the drive condition and spares.
