Proven Data Recovery Cost Assessment
Data recovery pricing is determined on a case to case basis. 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.
Please keep in mind that the figures below are based on around 75% of previous cases. They may be lower or potentially higher at times.
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 85% of previous cases: $85 – $300
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.
General data recovery cost range based on 85% of previous cases: $700 – $2000
Proven Data Recovery Services honors the turnaround time you choose at the receipt of all resources needed for recovery. Although we stock thousands of hard drive parts, some hard drive manufacturers require rare parts that need to be ordered overseas. In these rare scenarios when we do not have parts needed for recovery in our inventory, they are ordered promptly using overnight delivery where applicable.
