Data Recovery Pricing
Hard Drive Data Recovery Service Pricing in 2016

“If recovered your data, you’ll pay a low flat-fee ( $300).
  • If we can’t recover any of your data, there is no charge!
  • No diagnostic or attempt fees (when data is unrecoverable).
  • $100 labor charge if you don’t want the data we could recover.
  • 85% of our customers pay $300 for their recovered data (excluding shipping and a transfer drive, if necessary).
  • Our max rate for any single-drive data recovery is $500.”

“Data Recovery by Gillware
We know data loss can be a very difficult experience. That’s why we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get your important files back:
·         “No data, no charge” policy – view a list of recoverable files before paying
·         Free evaluation and inbound shipping
·         We are SOC 2 Type II security audited
·         World class team of computer scientists, mechanical and electrical engineers, true data recovery experts”

“Typically, for a disk capacity of less than 2 TB, the price may range from $200 (file system corruption) to thousand odd dollars (with physical failure). The charge may be higher if the job complexity increases.”

“Flat-Rate Pricing

Here it is $45/hr., with an average recovery between 4-8 hours. Get this pricing somewhere else? Not likely. The truth is that logical recovery is a fairly automated process that only requires a few minutes per hour attention from a well trained technician. This means that one technician can handle 4-6 recovery machines at a time. The key to a successful business like ours is quality, aggressive service-pricing, and volume. We recover from almost all spinning hard drives, IDE, EIDE, SATA, SCSI, notebook hard drives, internal and external drives, SD and Compact Flash Drive recoveries, and just about any types of media that holds data, for a fraction of the price.
Average cost per recovery: For the most common recovery type(82%), logical recovery costs are between $90 and $180, plus media/shipping. cost for data recovery [compare to $950-4500 industry average ]”

“How Much Does Data Recovery Cost?

It’s impossible to list out what each and every type of data recovery job will cost.  Data recovery prices are heavily dependent on the type of media needing to be recovered, the file system it uses, whether or not there is any physical damage that needs to be repaired first and a host of other variables.
You can expect data recovery prices from any reputable company to start off around $500.  Companies that quote you prices of $50, $99, $199 or $300 can be written off almost immediately. These are usually companies that charge additional fees, such as diagnostic or attempt fees on every case they get in, and if your data isn’t recoverable (which it likely won’t be) then they still pocket the upfront charge. If it seems to good to be true it probably is. Also, just because a company may have hundreds of glowing reviews, doesn’t mean those reviews are real, so shop with caution.

“RAID Data Recovery Pricing

RAID data recovery prices will vary based on several different factors:

Minimum price is calculated on the number of drives times the minimum price ($350 CAD) for a single hard drive.  For example:
A 3 drive RAID 5 minimum cost is: $350 x 3 = $1050CAD
A 6 drive RAID 10 minimum cost is: $350 x 6 = $2100CAD

As RAID recoveries can get very complex, we are unable to post a maximum price.”

“In-Lab Data Recovery Services are needed when data is lost due to hard drive physical failure. Without a Seagate Service Plan, recovery fees start at $499 and can easily be over $2,000 based on your data loss circumstances.”
