What to Send & How

What to Send Us for Data Recovery Service

Source device … Normally we require only the physical media whether a hard drive, tape cartridge or USB flash stick. We do not need your computer. However, if you are unable to remove the media from your system, you may send us your desktop computer or laptop.

If you have a RAID array, please remove the drives and  label each one with their bay number. We generally do not require the server. If you are unsure how to remove the drives, you may send the entire server, NAS or SAN.

Target device Once we recover your data and you approve the results, we will need to copy it to a new storage device. You can send us a new storage device for this purpose, OR you can buy one of our competitively priced USB external hard drives for returning your data on.
