In fact, it seems to some that data recovery companies hide their prices. Since the prices are not published on the website, it is difficult for potential customers to get an idea of the costs involved. However, there are a few reasons why we don’t publish our prices at Ontrack:
- Every data recovery job is different. Some are simple and require little time and equipment, while others can be complicated and require special tools.
- Remote reviews are not always reliable. Although they give a data recovery company an idea of the problem, some customers are unable to describe the cause and symptoms of data loss.
- Online offers can unintentionally mislead customers. Because every data recovery job is different, it’s difficult to commit to a fixed price online, as customers may be disappointed if their bid ends up being higher. That’s why we offer free diagnostics and are happy to examine the device before we quote a fixed price.
How Can You Estimate The Cost Of Recovery Your Self?
Accurately estimating the cost of a Data Recovery is complicated as there are many factors to consider such as:
- the type of device
- the cause of the data loss
- The location of the data recovery service
- The desired time frame
If you’re wondering about the cost of data recovery, your best bet is to contact a data recovery company like On track, who can give you a no-obligation estimate.
Do Data Recovery Prices Different Between Personal And Business Devices?
In a way, yes. The cost of data recovery depends on the type and extent of damage, as well as the damaged device. Losing Youtube data on a private laptop may or may not cost the same as it does on a work laptop – it all depends on the type of damage.
A business is more likely to have higher data recovery costs due to the amount and type of hardware used, such as raid systems or servers. Because companies generally have more devices than private users, natural disasters such as fire or flooding also result in more devices being damaged, which increases the amount of damage.
