How To Ship Your Drive for Data Recovery

Data Recovery Shipping

Have you considered professional data recovery services for your lost data but you're not sure where to start? Are you ready to ship your hard drive or flash drive to 24 Hour Data for a free diagnostic, but you're afraid it won't arrive safely?

Don't worry! Lost data is stressful enough. These easy-to-follow instructions will help you package your hard disk drive, flash memory card or USB drive quickly and easily, so you know it will arrive to the 24 Hour Data diagnostic lab safely. Once we receive your storage media, we'll offer a free diagnostic within about two hours.

Pack up your hard drive for shipping to our data recovery facility in three easy steps.

- Call 24 Hour Data for your ground shipping FedEx label -- shipping costs are on us!

- Wrap your hard drive in at least 2 inches of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or other packing materials and a plain brown shipping box or a box from FedEx. Seal with packing tape.

- Call FedEx for a free pick-up or drop off your packaged hard drive at the nearest FedEx location.

Still sound difficult or  time-consuming? Don't have the right size box? No worries. For a fee, you can bring your hard drive to FedEx, where they will package it safely for shipping, marking it as “fragile electronics.” The company even has special boxes available for shipping hard drives, laptop computers and other sensitive electronic equipment.

You don't want to do more physical damage to your hard drive prior to a data recovery. Save time and money -- and improve the chances we can recover your lost data -- by packaging your hard drive carefully.
