Data recovery firms

Post Posted: Jun 14, 06 18:04

Hey guys,

I am looking for a few different companies that will do data recovery in the event of hardware failure. I come across a drive every week or two that is not recognized by the bios or has obvious physical damage ie. clicking sounds. I am not involved with forensics as a fulltime job yet, so this is a case of customers wanting their data that they didnt back up. I need a good place to recommend them to because the place we have worked with in the past has never been successful with any work we have sent them. On one occasion they have kept the drive for a month or so.

I would like to know if any of you have worked with some good companies with reasonable prices. I do not want a place that will tell me it will be between 600 and 3000 dollars. We all know how those quotes end up. If it is going to cost close to 3k, just tell me that. Even if you have had bad experiences I would like to hear those as well.

Thanks,

Hi,

We charge from $2100-$3200 for drives with physical problems. On certain drives (NP40) the clicking is a firmwire issue which can be fixed in the $500 range.

The thing that is difficult about doing dr work is that if you don't get back a drive for someone, they feel that the company is not good at what you do.
On the other side they feel that if you do get the data back, you will never have an instance where you can't recover future hard drives for them.

I am just googling and requesting different quotes this morning. So far I have contacted Ontrack (www.ontrack.com and ECO (www.ecodatarecovery.com) Do you have anything positive or negative to say about these companies? Based on the information given, they quoted a successful job at $975 for a 20 gig laptop drive. Ontrack quoted it as up to $2200. Also if you dont mind, what is your company name Armresl? Do you have a website?

Hi debaser,

I've used Accurate Data Recovery for years for jobs that I cannot recover myself. Their pricing is quite reasonable, usually around 600-700 for hardware failures, and they tend to be pretty quick with their work.
