Broken hard drives come in all shapes and sizes and the problems they have vary. Some hard drives may be unresponsive, some may be completely dead, other’s may heat up whilst some may repetitively click. When working in data recovery people often want to know how much the work is going to cost them. Price vary, but most UK companies will charge in the region of £500 – £1000 pounds.
Below are example hard drive faults – each will cost in somewhere between these two amounts. Other types of fault are possible but I think I’ve covered most eventualities:
I have a Trekstor external hard drive that I would like to recover my files from. It connects to my laptop with a USB and also needs to be plugged. It contains mainly music and photos but it is just the photos that I want recovered. Do you know an approximate quote for this?
Laptop failed and need data off hardrive. Removed it and put it in an external enclosure. Other laptop won’t read it. It’s just family photo’s and video’s we really need to recover. Don’t think it’s that much data really. What sort of prices do you charge?

We have a client who has dropped an external disk which now can’t be recognised by Windows. Its not urgent but could you give me an estimate of the likely costs if data can be recovered from the disk. Its a Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 500Gb (part number: 98D148-269).
I understand that it could be many different things, but I would like to advise client of a likely budget window before proceeding.
