Data Recovery Cost Factors

Considering the wide variety of media storage devices and the types of failures, it is extremely difficult to give an exact quote without having our engineers evaluate your device. During the evaluation, we use a precise algorithm that is derived from previous cases taking into account the complexity of the recovery, the cause of the damage, and the extent of the data loss. This how we ensure each data recovery case is priced fairly. Outlined below are the various stages of data recovery cost with an approximate price range.

Stage I Data Recovery Cost

This is the most basic stage of data recovery. Clean room work is not required because the internal components are functioning properly. We are able to extract data using advanced imaging methods and other proprietary tools. Pricing will be determined upon completion of the evaluation.

General data recovery cost range based on 80% of previous cases: $85 – $300

Data- Recovery Cost Stage 1

Stage II Data Recovery Cost

The next stage of data recovery involves a higher level of complexity than stage 1. Most of these failures are caused by logical disk errors and involves rebuilding the logical portion of the hard drive. Clean room work is not required for stage 2 data recovery as well. Pricing will be determined upon completion of the evaluation.

General data recovery cost range based on 85% of previous cases: $150 – $700

Stage III Data Recovery Cost

Most data recovery cases reside in stages 1 & 2, but it is also common for drives to fail mechanically. In stage 3, the delicate internal components of a device have failed and must be replaced in our clean room environment. In some cases, devices have compound failures where logical and mechanical failures are present. Physical damage and disaster cases are also classified as stage 3. Stage 3 cases are the most severe and pricing will be determined upon completion of the evaluation.
