How to get started

We charge a $29 deposit for estimation and handling. The amount is non-refundable, but it will goes towards the final cost of your data rescue cost. The following procedures will be performed during the estimation process.

  1. We examine the damaged drive before we inform the customer about the estimated recovery possibility and price.
  2. Once we give you our price, we stand by it even if we underestimated the drive's damage and final costs exceed the estimate.
  3. We examine all possibilities before we determine that the data is unrecoverable and lost forever.

If you decide to go through with the recovery process, you will need to place a deposit for half of the repair’s cost. Amount is based on the plan selected from above list.

Once your data has been successfully recovered, you will be notified to pickup at one of our five stores.

Service Warranty

In the event that critical files are still missing or the files recovered are unusable and/or corrupted, we will redo the recovery attempt for no additional charge within 10 days of the pickup date.
Discount will apply for partial data recoveries due to unrecoverable damage to the media or other limiting factors. If the data recovery cannot be completed or all the files the customer was asking for at check in are corrupted and/or unusable. we will only keep the $29 deposit for the inspection.

Once you have checked and confirmed that all of the recovered data is OK, any and all copies of your data will be permanently and securely erased from our servers. You can request to have the original drive back or we will destroy and recycle it.
