put the drive in a static bag (or wrap the drive in aluminum foil.
Fourth, find a sturdy box, and suspend the drive
inside using foam pellets or cushy bubble wrap all around (use
a good quality mailing tape). Lastly, try selecting
UPS or FedEx. This is a more expensive way to ship, but not only
does the package reach its destination sooner, it also experiences
less handling. And you'll be able to track the package's progress.
Upon reception of your media you will be assigned
a case number. Our data recovery specialists will perform a comprehensive
diagnostic to determine exactly what has gone wrong.
After a full and accurate evaluation of your media you will be
emailed a list of recoverable data to make sure the files you
need are present.
As soon as the file list is complete, ComRecovery will send you
an authorization form including the price for recovering your
data to be filled out, signed and faxed back in order to complete
the recovery process and get your data back to you.
Upon reception of your authorization to proceed along with your
method of payment, the recovery specialist will complete the recovery
process by transferring your data on CDs, DVDs or external USB
hard drives. Rest assured that your data is SECURE
as every member of CompRecovery is under strict nondisclosure.
The price of recovery depends on the amount of recovered data
and the complexity associated with the recovery. CompRecovery
charges $200.00 for Emergency/Expedited recoveries and $200.00
as well for RAID diagnostic. Desktops and laptop hard drives are
generally $495.00 to $1,495.00. Floppy Disks, Memory Sticks and
Smart Media are in average $250.00. RAID systems can vary greatly
in price depending on the complexity of the recovery. RAID systems
are charged per drive. The only other charges incurred are the
cost of donor drives if needed, the cost of shipping and if you
need to purchase a hard drive from us to put your data on. Most
customers ask us if we can just get a little bit of the data instead
of it all. The answer is that generally it takes as much time
to get a little bit of the data as does to get all of it.
