Data Recovery Pricing Toronto
Regardless of the ads you may see, most recoveries cannot be done for $99 or even $350. Approximately 68% of data loss situations are the result of a mechanical failure with the hard drive. These cases typically have media damage and bad heads as a result. The only possible way to recover the data is by replacing the heads and this requires the purchase of an exact matching hard drive for parts. We often consume 2,3, or even 4 parts drives in the pursuit of data. Now if a single parts drive costs $70 and you need 2 of them, it isn't hard to see that the costs quickly add up. Interestingly enough, a lucrative business of selling older hard drives to data recovery companies at ridiculous prices has resulted. So, be aware there are many so called recovery companies that are actually marketing companies with little technical skill. Essentially they advertise "too good to be true pricing" in order to attract as many cases as possible and then recover the easiest cases and declare the rest unrecoverable (a real crime and disservice to everyone).
Providing fixed data recovery pricing is very difficult because every data loss situation is unique and requires different procedures and resources. For example, recovering data from a hard drive may be as simple as running an automated recovery utility to retrieve data inaccessible due to minor NTFS file system damage OR it may require 14 hours of labor and an advanced understanding of HP UNIX to rebuild missing super blocks. And those two scenarios assume the hard drive is working perfectly. In 68% of the time the hard drive is not functioning properly and it must be repaired first. This could involve troubleshooting and repairing a bad PCB or replacing the head assembly multiple times in an effort to image off a hard drive with visible rings resulting from a crash. So if you're flat rating your services will you really give each case its due diligence or will you tend to easily give up on the tougher cases?
