  1. How much does data recovery cost ?

Data recovery cost depends on the seriousness / type of the problem. In a few cases ( not all ) cost also depends on the size of the required data.

For Logical problems (in case of detecting / functional Hard disks ) the charges will be less. Examples for logical data recovery includes :

  • Formatted hard disk data recovery

  • Deleted drive data recovery

  • Missing files / folders data recovery

  • Corrupted files data recovery and more..

In a typical 1TB formatted Hard disk, data recovery cost may not exceed 3500rs

In case of physical problems ( dead / not detecting /hanging /clicking hard disks ) the recovery charges will be reasonable.

Examples of physical data recovery cases

  • Not detecting hard disk data recovery

  • Dead / burnt hard disk data recovery

  • Hanging / slow responding hard disk data recovery

  • Clicking hard disk data recovery

  • Bad sectored hard disk

In the above cases charges depend on the problem like circuit issues , bad sector issues / media issues and also business ethics .

Typical 1TB hard disk ( internal or external ) with circuit issues / bad sectored issues, data recovery cost will be less than Rs.4500 in most of the cases.

In case of media issues where head / plotter replacement is needed, the cost could be a bit high .

A typical case of 1TB Seagate external hard disk with clicking sounds and heads problem , the maximum cost may not exceed Rs,25000/-
