Hard Drive Data Recovery Cost

The first questions, which everyone asks us on our helpline number and chats,
"Hey, I am not able to access my data. Can you recover this data for me? My data is very precious and important."

Stellar Data Recovery offers a complete range of data recovery option to recover deleted data according to different data loss scenarios. Choose the most
preferable data recovery option as per your need.

Our executive, "Certainly we can help you with data recovery."

Then the customer asks, "How much it will cost to get my data back from the hard drive?"

Here’s the answer,

For simple data loss case from hard drive, data recovery charges start from ₹ 3,500. Data recovery charges for hard drive vary due to the cause of data loss and the volume of the hard drive. To know exactly how much it would cost and why it varies, please read along.

Data loss can happen due to various reasons. Thus, before we can quote you the exact cost of data recovery service, we need to analyze your device to understand the real cause of data loss. This step is most important to determine what further actions need to be taken to get back your lost data safely.

Briefly, data recovery charges are directly related to the complexity of the case. Therefore, the higher the complexity, costlier will be the data recovery service, as it requires specialized equipment, experts help, and a controlled environment such as Class 100 Clean Room lab.

A professional data recovery service provider estimates data recovery service fee on the following parameters:

1. Type of Data Storage Device
There are different types of hard drives used in PC, laptops, and servers. A laptop packs in smaller 2.5” SATA drive while a PC has a bit larger and faster 3.5” hard drive. Then there are external hard drives that connect via USB interface and RAID server hard disks. Each type of hard drive has a different data recovery cost which is based on their type, size, and interface.

2. Problem Type
As we mentioned earlier, data recovery cost varies with the complexity of the data loss case.

For instance, data recovery from a physically damaged or mechanically failed hard drive is a highly complex task, which requires specialized tools and a dust-free temperature controlled Class 100 Clean Room lab.  It may take days to recover data securely from such physically failed hard drives.

On the other hand, data recovery from a logical damaged hard drive can be done quickly with careful inspection and specialized software. Then there are cases where a user may lose data due to a combination of both logical followed by physical failure—occurs when the drive is aging.

3. The Storage Capacity
Cost of data recovery is directly proportional to the storage capacity of media.

4. Spare Transplantation for Hard Drive
A physically damaged hard drive require spares such as actuator arm, read/write head, etc. for transplantation and data recovery. Availability of these spares also affects the cost of data recovery.

5. Tampered Hard Drive
Chances of data recovery from a tampered hard drive are much less than a non-tampered drive. Also, these jobs become more complicated after tampering. Hence the cost of data recovery from a tampered hard disk is high than a standard hard drive.

6. Turnaround Time
Data Recovery charges also vary as per your urgency to recover your data. If the demand to retrieve data is immediate, the cost of recovery will be high.

A reputed data recovery company takes into consideration the parameters mentioned above to calculate data recovery charges. While this may seem like a justification of high data recovery cost, in actual, this is to maintain transparency of data recovery cost.

Here is the list of data storage devices from which we recover data.

Solid-State Drive (SSD) Data Recovery Cost

SSDs have more complex data storage architecture as compared to standard hard drives. Hence the data recovery cost for SSD is more as compared to HDDs.

SD card Data Recovery Cost

For simple data loss cases, data recovery charges for SD card and flash memory devices start from ₹ 3,500. Data recovery cost for SD cards increases with the storage capacity of the card.

Most commonly used flash data storage devices in India are SD cards, eMMC, Pen drives, CF cards, etc. These portable storage media are generally used to store and transfer data such as documents, presentations, photos, videos, etc. from one device to another.

Customers have a mindset that data recovery from SD cards, pen drive, and memory card should be cheap. They compare the selling cost of these cards with data recovery cost. However, this is not the case. One should not compare the price of the data storage device with the cost of data recovery from the same device.

In SD cards, memory cards, and CF cards, the most common reason for data loss is device formatting, file deletion( Logical case), and sometimes, physical damage.

In case you prefer to visit a professional data recovery service provider for a logical data loss case, they will charge you based on device storage capacity. For logical cases, you can also try our DIY professional data recovery software. Try our Photo recovery software, which can recover data from SD cards. The demo version of this software is free.

In case of a physically damaged SD card or other flash storage drive, only a data recovery expert can help you in getting back your data. There is no alternative except opting for a professional data recovery service.

The data recovery cost of a physically damaged SD card will depend on the type of damage.

Briefly, data recovery from a physically damaged SD card is a more complex job and hence, data recovery charges are higher.
