Many times, customers call for their free diagnostic and free estimate for the recovery of their important data on a hard drive, flash drive, SSD, Mac device or other form of storage media.
When they hear our hourly price for data recovery services, they often reply with the price of their hard drive. “My hard drive only cost $100! Why should I pay any more than that for data recovery?”
This is especially prevalent when data is missing from an extremely inexpensive flash drive.
Data Recovery is More Than Just Repair
It's important to remember, we're not just repairing your hard drive or storage media so you can use it again. Our experienced data recovery professionals are retrieving your important lost data. The real question to ask yourself is: How much is your data worth?
What's On Your Hard Drive or Other Storage Media?
If you're a photographer, your flash drive or memory card may contain photos you can sell for thousands. If you're a grandmother, those photos from your digital camera may be hard to put a price tag on -- you could even say they're priceless.
If you use your computer to run your small business and your hard drive fails, the data you lost is probably worth thousands. Accounting information, client contacts, templates -- you need it all to run your business. Keep in mind that many businesses who lose their data for more than 10 days file bankruptcy within one year of that data loss. How much is business continuity worth to you?
If you're a student, the data on your hard drive could mean the difference between a 4.0 GPA and a better job after graduation, or struggling to get back on track all semester. How much is your sanity worth?
At 24 Hour Data, we can tell you how much it costs to restore your crucial data. But only you know how much that data is really worth to you. We're willing to bet it's a lot more than the value of the storage device.
