Service And Pricing

datapros is not able to quote recovery pricing without performing a lab diagnostic on the device. This allows us to quote EXACT costs.

Check starting prices below.

Single HARD DRIVES ONLY: RAIDS, NAS, etc. NOT included. (Pricing until further notice)

Low level hard drive evaluation (powers up?) – NO CHARGE

Diagnostics 3 to 5 business days:

1.Your diagnostic fee (in-depth to allow exact data recovery cost) is $89.00 for any size single hard drive

EMERGENCY or same day Lab Diagnostic Fee $200.00 any size single hard drive + GST 

Starting Process:

In-depth lab analysis to determine logical and/or physical repairs required.
1. Determine the cause of failure
2. Build a data recovery quote
3. Email the data recovery quote to the customer for approval

Starting Process:

Level 1. Straight to Recovery

Level 2. Physical external repairs to device, then Recovery ***

Level 3. Physical internal repairs to device, then Recovery ***

– Head replacement

– Motor replacement

Level 1 deals with logical failure types that are non-physical. Logical errors can range from a simple invalid entry in a file allocation table to more serious problems like corruption and loss of file system on a severely fragmented drive. The difference of logical errors from mechanical or electronic error is there is nothing wrong physically with the drive, but just the information on it. Attempting to run a fix utility might make recoverable data difficult to recover. Leave this to a specialist.

    ONLY Levels 1 & 3

Level 2 deals with electronic failure and bad sectors. This involves damage to the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) of the hard disk. The PCB controls, coordinates and communicates to the computer to read and write data. Electric surges and power spikes can lead to PCB damage. There is also firmware corruption. This is the code that controls the physical hard drive hardware. Your computer will often be unable to correctly interact with the hard disk.

Level 3 deals with physical failures that are mechanical in nature. The read and write heads of your hard disk can become defective without prior warning.When an internal component goes faulty, your data in your hard disk will become inaccessible. Opening up a hard drive requires a clean room environment to prevent contamination to the internal components. The drive will be disassembled and repaired and then the data recovered.

When USB drives and cell phones require Level 3 recovery attempts Forensic methodologies are required which are complex and time consuming. It can take 3 – 8 weeks.
