Computer Dead – Recovery for a Functioning Hard Drive
Don’t despair if your computer, laptop or Mac cannot be repaired or is too costly to repair – it is still likely that we can still retrieve your valuable files and invaluable family photographs for you.
If the hard drive in your failed machine is still functioning and stable, we can put the hard drive into an enclosure which you can then use as a portable hard drive or we can transfer your valuable data to your external hard drive. This only costs you minimum charge to half an hour labour depends on how much data you have.
Alternatively if your hard disk is unstable we will endeavour to successfully recover your data and transfer your files, music, photos etc for you onto your new computer. We could also provide them to you on an external hard disk.
Hard Drive Recovery – Hard Drive Failure
It depends on how damaged your hard drive is as to whether we can successfully retrieve your data from it. For file system corruption we have great success to recover the data, no matter it's Windows NTFS, FAT, FAT32 or Apple Mac HFS or even Linux ext3 and ext4. For the hardware failure we still have 50% recoverable rate.
If your data is recoverable we have a set fee of $165 to transfer your data to your portable hard drive. For this low fee, we need you to bring your computer to our workshop in Taree.
Hard Drive Data Recovery Diagnostic Fee
To find out if your data is recoverable charge a diagnosis fee of $39. We only charge this fee if after a thorough examination of the hard drive, employing several different methods of data recovery we determine that the drive is too damaged for us to successfully recover your data. The diagnostic fee only partly covers the time that we take to determine whether or not your data is recoverable. We only offer this service in our workshop in Taree.
We will not charge you the diagnostic fee if we are able to successfully recovery your data for you. You will only be charged the data recovery fixed fee of $165.
It is more cost-effective to have this service undertaken in our workshop as we are able to multi-task and thus save time and the cost to you for what is often a lengthy data copying process. If we undertake the data recovery at your home or office we will charge for the full time that we are on-site at our hourly rate of $110. If you request we undertake a diagnosis to determine whether your data is recoverable or not at your home or business, our normal hourly rate of $110 per hour would also apply.
External Hard Drive, USB sticks and sd-card Data Recovery
It is also sometimes possible for us to retrieve your data from your damaged portable hard drive or camera sdcard and USB sticks. External hard drives are very delicate devices and need to be treated with great care. If you knock or drop your external hard drive while backing up your chances of data recovery are unfortunately reduced. If this is what has happened to you and your drive, please give Jim a call and we will discuss your options with you.
