The most common question for recovery is regarding the data recovery cost or charges that are applicable to restore data from the hard drive or media. The recovery price-list for any storage media depends on the following 3 factors:

  1. Kind of Drive or Media: Laptop or Desktop/ PC and Portable hard disk drives (HDD) / SSD / SSHD , Server recovery or RAID-like SAS and SCSI hard drives / Flash drive like memory cards / SD cards. Every storage media has to be handled differently and hence charges varies.
  2. Kind of Damages on Media: Either basic deleted recovery or formatted Logical issues, Board damages, Firmware issues, CRC I/O Errors, Media or Physical damages, the data recovery cost varies on how simple or how complex is the damage.
  3. Technology and Time Dedication, Data Recovery Levels: 

          Level 1: Deleted / Formatted issues can be completed in 1 or 2 days at basic charges.
          Level 2: Hardware level issues like firmware or CRC errors would take about 2 to 5 days at medium or low cost.
          Level 3: Physical  or media level issues take about 5 to 15 days of time & cost of donor drives, lab level work in Bangalore will be involved during the recovery process.
