Questions and Answers
Why do hard drives fail?
Hard drives by definition are mechanical, meaning they have moving parts that will wear down over time. The read/write heads, spindle, and actuator may be unable to read the data on the drive after even a slight offset. User error, viruses, and physical damage can also affect the operation of your drive.
What does hard drive recovery cost?
The cost depends on a variety of factors including the brand, model, and capacity of the device. The service level you choose also affects the total price that is paid. Secure Data Recovery engineers will provide a diagnostic report after examining your device and give you a price quote based on the scope of work.
How do engineers recover my data from the hard drive?
Our team of experienced engineers repair or replace damaged hard drive components in a Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom. After replacing parts, they are able to create a copy of your hard drive and retrieve the files using specialized software. After recovering your files, we return them on FIPS-Validated hardware-encrypted transfer media.
What if I only need certain files back?
If you have certain files that are most important to you, we will make that data a priority during the recovery process. Overall, we aim for a full recovery every time and will return every file we recover back to you. Secure Data recovery boasts an overall 96% success rate.
