Data Recovery

Bring your drive to us now for data recovery and we will start with our free diagnosis. Just make an appointment below to drop-off. We will let you know if your recovery is considered a tier 1, tier 2, or tier 3 recovery. If you decide to not go with the recovery service for any reason, you may pickup your drive without charge. The diagnosis is completely free.

Tier 1 Data Recovery $199

Some failing drives do not require hardware data recovery tools in order to recover the data. In cases where data can be pulled off the drive using software techniques, the charge for the recovery is $99. A perfect example of this is when you have a drive that has been erased and needs recovery. Another example would be a drive that has a problem that does not allow the computer to boot from it, but the required data is accessible using just software methods. Another example of a Tier 1 recovery is partition corruption. This can cause the data to lose its names and folder structure. While software recovery methods will be able to recover most data, it may take some time after the recovery to sort through the data looking for your most important files. Most Tier 1 recoveries are normally completed within 1-3 days.

Tier 2 Data Recovery $329

If your drive does require hardware data recovery tools (software recovery is not possible) but does not require a head swap or other cleanroom service, it will fall under our Tier 2 service. An example of a Tier 2 issue is a drive with bad sectors in the area that holds the catalog file. Another example would be a drive that has a weak head causing the drive to not work properly, but the data can still be recovered without swapping out the head. A third example would be a drive that has power issues due to an issue with its PCB (printed circuit board). We have found about 85% of drives that have failed (but have not been dropped) are recoverable without the need of a cleanroom and therefore are recoverable under our Tier 1 or Tier 2 services. Tier 2 recoveries are completed in 1-3 days after drop-off on average. If a part is required for a Tier 2 recovery, the turnaround time increases to 5-10 days.

Tier 3 Data Recovery $699

Tier 3 recovery is needed when a drive requires cleanroom services such as a head swap. Many times what is believed to be an internal issue is still recoverable with our tier 2 service, so be sure to bring your drive in for a free diagnosis to be sure if you need a cleanroom repair or not. If your drive was dropped and failed, there is a 60% chance it will require a tier 3 recovery. If the drive was not dropped, there is only a 15% chance it will require a tier 3 recovery. Tier 3 data recoveries are completed in 10-14 days on average.

PC data recovery

PC Data Recovery

We don’t offer PC repair services, but we certainly offer PC data recovery! As soon as we started working with data recovery we knew we wanted to be able to provide the service to everybody including Mac and PC users. We even work with some PC repair shops that send their difficult recoveries to us. We can remove the drive from your PC if needed, and recommend a good local repair shop to take your PC to get a new drive installed. We can always recover data onto an external backup drive if you prefer not to repair your PC. learn more

RAID recovery services

RAID recoveries

We are one of the few shops in Boise that offers RAID recovery in our location. Most shops have to mail the RAID out for recovery due to the difficult and time consuming process of rebuilding the RAID. If you are shop and need help rebuilding a RAID recovery, please contact us and we can discuss the project. If you have a RAID and need recovery, we can help! We charge our Tier 2 service charge on a per drive basis. So if you have a 4 drive RAID 5 and need data recovery, the total cost would be 4 x $379 = $1516. Please contact us with any RAID recovery questions and to discuss the recovery of your particular RAID. learn more
