The cost of most data recovery solutions is so expensive that some would say it borders on extortion. The cost to recover your lost data from most data recovery centers ranges from $400- $2700 with a median price of $1900. The costs are not entirely unjustifiable however. These facilities run clean room environments with highly specialized teams and equipment.
However, in our experience, we’ve found that about 85% of Mac drives don’t need to go to clean room facilities to recover data, and therefore the costs are unjustifiable for a large majority of customers. A drive should only go to a clean room facility as a last resort…usually if the drive is physically damaged or will no longer spin.
With that in mind, today we’re unveiling a new affordable hard drive recovery service to recover data off of your Mac, iPod, or iPhone. The new service has been designed not to extort, but rather to recover lost or deleted files.
The complete details on the new service can be found at this link: Mac Hard Drive Data Recovery Service
If we can recover the files you specify you are looking for, the cost for up to 8GB of file recovery is a flat $99. (This pricing includes the service, free 3 way Ground shipping, and an 8GB thumb drive.) If we can not recover the specific files you are looking for then we can either return the drive with no files for no charge, or you can have us recover the files we are able to (up to 8GB) for a reduced fee of $74. If you need greater than 8GB of data recovered, the fee is $1 per GB. (This fee is only to cover the cost of the storage device to put the recovered files on. If you have a 2nd drive, you can send that with the hard drive and this $1 per GB fee would be waived.)
