Typical data recovery procedure:


You receive a hard disk drive (or other faulty electronic media) enquiry from a potential customer.


You supply your customer with a preliminary quotation based on our recommended retail price as per our reseller pricelist.

  • You could add your own mark-up should you wish - keeping in mind that if the customer approached us directly we would be quoting them our recommended retail price.
  • You can also contact us (should you prefer) in order to confirm the pricing.
  • The purpose of the preliminary quotation is to commit your customer to the costs associated in sending the drive to us.


If your customer is satisfied with the preliminary quotation you then ship the drive to us.

  • In the case of server recoveries we would require:
    • All disk drives in the server. The sequence (order) of these drives must be marked before being removed from the server (very important).
    • If possible the Raid controller (even if faulty).


We receive the drive and should be able send you a written confirmation quotation via email within 2-10 working hours depending on the service option required.


You then send a confirmation quotation (including your reseller mark-up) to your customer who in turn supply you with a final approval (preferably in writing).


You email us confirming the final approval received.

  • No data recovery work will be undertaken without us 1st having received this approval from yourself UNLESS you have marked the drive as pre-approved based on our reseller pricelist.


We complete the data recovery.

  • This takes us on average 3-5 working days under our STANDARD recovery rate.
  • We do not return the faulty recovered drive - we could however return what is left of the drive should you require.
  • We will send you a report via e-mail should we not be able to recover any data.
  • We will also again contact you should we not be able to recover all the data required.
  • The data will be transferred to a destination drive either supplied by yourself (or your customer) or we can quote for any drive currently available
    • Most drives have more than 10GB worth of data and we therefore by default quote for a destination drive.


We send you an invoice via e-mail awaiting confirmation of payment.


We return the data or you may arrange for collection upon receipt of payment.

Advice to give your customer facing a potential data loss situation:

  1. Not to make any rash decisions that may cause further damage or lead to permanent data loss.
  2. To switch the drive off as soon as possible especially if there are “strange noises” coming from the drive.
  3. Not to run any hard disk utilities or data recovery software on a noisy and/or difficult to detect or access drive.
  4. Not to copy or write any data to a formatted, deleted or potentially damaged drive as this may cause further damage to the data.
  5. Not to format or modify the partitions on a potentially faulty drive.
  6. Not to open the drive - hard drives are very sensitive to contamination and should only be opened in a controlled clean room environment e.g. class 100 clean room.
  7. We do not recommend them replacing or swapping the controller board as that may cause damage to the drives firmware programming and so hamper the possibility of recovering the data.
    • The programming on most modern drives is specific to that drive despite having a matching PCB.
    • Please ensure that the original PCB is fitted back onto the drive before being shipped for data recovery – that is should the controller board have been replaced.
  8. To observe safe handling practices eliminating further damage.
  9. To package the drive as if sending an egg - See also Our Shipping Instructions.
