I get asked a lot about the costs of data recovery. The bottom line is it can be difficult to accurately price a job without seeing it first. I see all types of phones and hard drives in all sorts of conditions. The work required to retrieve the data can be simple to very difficult, and this is what drives the pricing. So, I need to examine your faulty phone or drive, then I can give you a cost. Typically costs are between £350 and £1000.
Here are some of the varied queries I receive:
Can I get details on expected data recovery (I understand it’s probably extremely variable case-to-case), time needed, cost etc for a hard drive as follows:
1 TB 7200rpm HTS721010A9E630
Used as external hard drive in an enclosure. Was stepped on. Made a squeaking noise.
Makes clicking noise when plugged in. Recognised as hard drive in device manager, but hangs explorer when double clicked.
Was unplugged and removed and not tampered with again.
Tried to install new Mac OS Sierra on my macbok pro (2011). The installation was interupted and now I can’t turn on my macbook without it Kernal Panicing. I tried to restart in Recovery mode but it won’t let me reinstall software or even load an old time machine back up… Still says there is data on the Macintosh HD though…
iPhone 6 has liquid damage and won’t turn on. My photos weren’t backed up and I want to recover them. Is this something you can do? Can you give me an idea of cost?
