Our process starts with a FREE consultation. You will tell us the story of what happened, give us the information about your media storage device, it’s failure symptoms, storage capacity, and a short list of the most important files you need recovered. You will then bring or send your hard drive, RAID, SSD, flash drive or camera card to our lab where we will perform a FREE evaluation to determine the exact failure. We will then provide you with a firm price to recover your files at which point you will decide if you want us to attempt recovery of your data or not.
Of course we will always try to recover every file along with the original file structure from your hard drive, RAID, SSD, flash drive or camera card. Sometimes that is simply not possible due to media damage. This is why we gather a list of the most important files you need. If we are unable to recover any data from your storage media device there will be absolutely no charge for the recovery attempt (except in rare cases when we charge an attempt fee due to unusual circumstances; previously opened drives, flooded drives, other types of situations that make data recovery much more difficult and time consuming than normal).
Warning: Never open your hard drive yourself. Never push down on the lid of your drive. Never put your drive in the freezer. Never tap, hit or drop your hard drive. If you believe your hard drive is failing, turn it off and do not continue to apply power to it. Hard drives are extremely sensitive and can easily be made unrecoverable.
