  • Q:How much does SQL server data recovery cost?

    We cannot provide a cost estimate without analyzing your server media, as failure scenarios vary greatly. Moreover, your SQL server's operating system and hardware configuration will affect the costs of the data recovery process.

    Secure Data Recovery Services provides free media evaluations with our standard service option. We can give you an accurate price quote and turnaround estimate within several days of receiving your server, and our flexible service options help you keep data recovery within your budget.

  • Q:Does my SQL server's operating system affect the data recovery process?

    Yes. However, Secure Data Recovery Services' engineers have experience with dozens of operating systems including Solaris, Windows, Mac OS X and various distributions of Linux and UNIX. We offer a safe, reliable set of data recovery services for all SQL servers, regardless of operating system or filesystem.

  • Q:How can I avoid downtime when treating a SQL server failure?

    In many cases, some amount of downtime is inevitable. However, Secure Data Recovery Services offers a varied set of data recovery options in order to help our clients keep their SQL systems operational.

    Our 24/7/365 emergency services provide a fast average turnaround of less than 24 hours. We also offer remote data recovery services for some SQL servers. Contact our customer service team to discuss available options.

  • Q:Does Secure Data Recovery Services have experience with my server's SQL implementation?

    Yes. As industry leaders in SQL data recovery, we have treated hundreds of servers, and our teams undergo ongoing training in order to treat new versions of various SQL database management systems.

    Secure Data Recovery Services' engineers have experience with MySQL, MS SQL, Oracle, DB2, PostgreSQL and dozens of other SQL implementations. We also have proprietary SQL repair tools, and our laboratory is optimized for server repair and data recovery.

  • Q:Why should I use a professional data recovery provider to treat my SQL server failure?

    SQL data recovery is a specialized process, and when you absolutely need information from a damaged server, you need to work with an appropriately qualified data recovery company. General-service IT repair companies can only treat a limited number of failure scenarios, and because a failed recovery attempt can cause permanent media damage, you should look for a company that has years of relevant experience.

    Secure Data Recovery Services offers an overall success rate of 96 percent, and we offer a no recovery, no charge guarantee with all of our SQL data recovery services.

  • Q:How can I improve my chances of a successful recovery?

    SQL servers are susceptible to corruption, overwrites and media damage, so turn your system off as soon as you notice signs of damage. Do not attempt to rebuild your server's RAID, and never run data recovery software of any kind. Keep your system powered off until you can call our customer service line to schedule an evaluation at one of our offices.
