Data Recovery Prices

When your hard disk drive has failed, your computer or laptop has stopped booting up, or you have accidentally deleted the contents of your hard disk, then data recovery services is a last resort where Platinum Data Recovery can recover your lost data.

How much does it cost to recover my data?

As the data recovery service is relatively niche industry, most people do not know what to expect for a reasonable price when they need data recovery services. Consequently, people choose services which fail to deliver desired results and your data is not delivered at all.

People who usually contact us with data recovery inquiries are intrigued to know what will the price to recover their lost data. While we do our best to express the cost based on the symptoms, it can be very difficult. Generally, most hard drives fail either due to hardware or software problems and it would not be possible to quote an exact estimate without inspecting the drive. This is why we offer a no-obligation device inspection. If a user declines, we return the device in the same state as it was received by us.

The following price table is for hard disk drives only.  To get pricing for other storage devices, please contact us.

What determines the price of data recovery?

There is no single flat rate when it comes to data recovery and that’s for a good reason. Over the years, we have realized that no data recovery case is the same. Whilst most of the physical failures and repairs may seem similar, the data present and level of corruption affect the pricing for the repair services.

As a rule of thumb, the more work that has to go into a hard disk drive to get it up and make it temporarily running, the higher the price would be. But there are several other factors involved that influence the pricing of the data recovery services at Platinum Data Recovery.

1. Type of Problem: There could be a number of circumstances that could result in hard disk drive failure. Most of them fall under the following categories:

-Logical: Typically a non-physical failure resulting from virus attack, file corruption or accidental deletion of data.

-Physical: It normally arises due to wear and tear of internal parts, such as read/write heads, or non-functioning of the spindle motor.

-Electrical: Failure of PCB due to a power surge or spike. The HDD won’t work even if the mechanical components are intact.

-Firmware: If the hard disk drive cannot access its firmware due to platter damage, firmware corruption, or electronics issues, it cannot boot.

2. Labor Time Spent: How much time does an experienced technician needs to put in to recover the data from your failed HDD? The more complex the data retrieval, the more time and attention is needed from our experienced technicians.

3. Spares Used: The number, type, and availability of spare parts play a significant role in determining the quote for your data recovery.

4. Technology Used: Every storage media can store up to a different amount of data and consequently, different technology has to be used for data retrieval. Depending upon the technology that has to be employed in the process, the prices for data recovery may go up.

5. Storage Capacity and Configuration: We at Platinum Data Recovery charge based on the damages, cost of donor parts, and labor hours required to amend the damage. Even for drives that are not filled to capacity, it will cost us the same engineered time and spare parts to make the drive temporarily functional again.   

6. Turnaround Time: Depending on the urgency of the work, customers can seek priority service for a nominal fee. In most cases, we offer affordable rates as per the convenience of the customer.  Prices in the table do not include expedited fees.

In general, you should expect the prices to be somewhere within the above range depending on the type of failure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you give me an estimate price?

To provide you with an exact quote, we first diagnose your drive to know what we are dealing with. Only then we can provide you an accurate price.

Do I need to pay upfront?

For most of the standard case, where we don’t need donor parts, you don’t pay anything until your data has been fully recovered.  In unsuccessful cases, you won’t be charged for all the labor hours we spent trying to recover your data.

What is the fee for encrypted hard drives?

If your hard drive is encrypted then there is an additional fee as it is much more difficult and time consuming to recover data from an encrypted device.

How long does the diagnostic take?

We are dedicated to complete the evaluation within two business days in the quickest time possible.  The time involved is however, dependent on the particular service plan you select.  The diagnostic is the best time to expedite because it does not depend on the condition of your storage device. We offer Same Day diagnostic for a nominal fee.

How long does data recovery take?

In most cases, the average time to recover data is 3-7 days.  In complex scenarios, it may stretch beyond that.  We have an emergency and priority services for customers that need data faster than that.
