Our affordable data recovery service, starting at only £249, offers a fast and efficient solution for recovering your precious data. It’s important to note that the actual cost of data recovery is highly dependent on the type of data loss experienced and the extent of damage to the storage device. Data loss can occur unexpectedly and frequently, catching individuals and organisations off guard. It’s a pervasive issue that can result from various factors, including hardware failure, software corruption, human error, or malicious attacks. Being prepared with regular backups and understanding the potential risks are essential steps in mitigating the impact of such an event.

Determining Factors in Data Recovery Costs

Several key factors significantly influence the varying cost of data recovery. The type of device, such as a hard disk drive (HDD), solid-state drive (SSD), or other storage media, crucially determines the cost. Additionally, the extent of damage, whether physical, logical, or both, directly affects the complexity of the recovery process and, in turn, the price. Each element can substantially impact the total data recovery costs.

Type of Device and Storage Capacity

Various devices, such as hard drives, SSDs, RAID arrays, and USB drives, possess distinct architectures and storage methods, impacting data recovery complexity and costs. Higher storage capacities typically entail more extensive recovery processes due to the larger data volume, often requiring advanced techniques and tools.

Extent of Damage

The extent of damage to storage media greatly influences the cost of data recovery. Minor issues can result in simple, cost-effective recovery attempts. However, severe damage caused by fire, water, or falls demands advanced recovery techniques. These techniques, which necessitate special tools, prolong the recovery process and escalate expenses. Furthermore, challenges like ransomware or software errors call for distinctive strategies, impacting costs in varying ways.

Turnaround Time

Faster data recovery times usually mean higher costs. This happens because professionals may need to work extra hours or use more resources to meet tight deadlines. Urgent projects often require advanced technology or more skilled technicians working simultaneously, driving up the costs.

Type of File

Some file formats require specific recovery methods or specialised software, which increases the cost. Encrypted files, for instance, often pose greater recovery challenges. Therefore, efficient data restoration relies on utilising the appropriate file recovery techniques and software.

Learn Price Estimate for Your Data Recovery Needs

If you require data recovery services for your hard drives, flash drives, or SSDs, it’s crucial to understand that the price estimate will depend on several factors.

Data recovery costs depend on factors like data loss complexity, recovery techniques required, storage device size, and damage extent. Understanding these factors helps estimate recovery service prices.

How Much Does Data Recovery Typically Cost?

Data recovery costs can indeed vary widely based on several factors, including the type of device, the extent of the damage, and the complexity of the recovery process. It’s only possible to charge the same for some data recovery cases. While some companies offer fixed prices, the final quote can change significantly after the device is diagnosed.

It’s only possible to charge the same for some data recovery cases. While some companies offer fixed prices, the final quote can change significantly after diagnosing the device. The different levels of data recovery process complexities can explain price variations.

Each situation involves a unique set of challenges, whether it’s due to the specific way data was lost, the condition of the storage medium, or the intricacies of the data itself. Therefore, a preliminary evaluation or diagnostics is essential for accurate pricing, ensuring that the cost reflects the work necessary to achieve recovery successfully.

How Much Time Does the Data Recovery Process Take? 

Data recovery duration varies based on device damage, data size, complexity, and task urgency. However, most standard data recovery processes take two to five days to complete. In some cases, it might take longer if more specialised techniques are needed for a successful recovery.

Only One Company Does Remote File Verification Session

Our file verification process via remote session is crucial for customer satisfaction. We are the only company offering this unique service. After successful data recovery, we initiate a remote session, allowing our customers to review and check their files.

Are There Other Options Besides Professional Data Recovery?

When data storage devices fail, users face significant problems due to inaccessible files, creating stress and urgency. Many attempt DIY fixes with online tutorials, but we advise against this. Data storage devices are complex and should only be handled by experienced engineers, preferably in specialised data recovery labs.

If you’re exploring cost-free alternatives to professional data recovery, you can use free software tools for self-recovery. However, this approach may only sometimes yield success.

Labor, Parts, and Procedures Cost Analysis for Data Recovery

Data recovery requires skilled technicians, advanced equipment, and sometimes the replacement of damaged parts. Labour and parts costs greatly influence the total recovery price, a key factor for individuals and businesses.

Case Difficulty and Labor Allocation

Deciding to assign a case to a junior or senior data recovery engineer depends on its complexity. Junior engineers charge £40-£60 per hour, while senior engineers charge £150-£300 per hour.
Costs range from £500 to £1,500 for juniors and £1,500 to £3,000 for seniors per case.

Spare Part Usage and Resource Allocation

Apart from labour and parts, the total cost of data recovery can rise due to specific hardware needs. For instance, a low-capacity drive may cost about £40. If you need five drives, especially high-capacity ones like 4TB, the price per unit could go over £70. Additionally, setting aside £80 to £1,600 for Quality Control (QC) specialists is crucial to ensure thorough verification and data integrity.

Specialised Procedures and Cleanroom Needs

Allocating between £150 to £750 for cleanroom expenses is essential, particularly for hard drive recoveries involving physical damage for tasks requiring microscopic soldering, such as those for USB flash drives, SSDs, SD cards, and similar devices with bodily harm, budget between £150 to £1,500. These costs reflect the specialised nature of these recovery processes.

Turnaround Time Considerations

For urgent data recovery, prices rise due to quicker delivery, incurring additional fees for prioritised resources and overnight work. Waiting a few months can cut expenses by two to threefold, especially for non-urgent cases. Providers may allocate resources more efficiently over time and offer discounts for longer turnaround, a cost-effective solution for patients.

We were thoroughly impressed by PITS Global Data Recovery Services since these guys could recover not only the half or majority, but all of our data that we sent them on Seagate NYTRO SSD. There was ... more than 1TB of data saved up on that device to which we had no access anymore. Despite difficulties, PITS recovered everything and transferred the data to a new HDD. Extraordinary you may ask? Not for PITS and their professionalism 💪🏻Absolutely brilliant

I believe this is the only company in the UK that has its own data recovery lab and doesn't send customers' devices elsewhere. I have been searching for such a company for a while, as it's hard for me ... to trust anyone after previous unsuccessful data recovery attempts. Besides having their own lab, PITS definitely boasts amazing customer service. They handled my complicated data loss situation with great efficiency, recovering every piece of lost data. During the final step, which I believe was called the verification session, we had the opportunity to check the recovered data and give our approval. It was a huge relief. Cheers for the brilliant service and the data recovery!

The place is next to the Nee Wimbledon Theatre and Polka Theatre. I was visiting PITS because of my issue with LaCie 1TB HDD that had a water damage and wasn’t working anymore. The device not working ... wasn’t that big of an issue but then I remembered that it had all my academic files in it. That’s when PITS came in clutch and recovered every file that was saved in there. I got all my ~700gb back with no missing data! Imagine the work they had done, which is pretty impressive. Well deserved 5 ⭐️

I took my Synology NAS to PITS for assistance after one of its four drives failed unexpectedly, leaving me unable to access any of my data. PITS immediately understood the critical nature of my ... predicament and wasted no time getting to work. They even completed the data recovery much sooner than I had anticipated. They also organized a verification session, allowing me to review the recovered results. Honestly, I was skeptical about the possibility of a full recovery, but to my surprise, all of my documents, media and the rest of the files were successfully recovered. The service was truly commendable. Should I ever face a similar issue in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again.
