My prices start at $375 for hard drives and $175 for thumb drives. With hard drives the prices can go higher if parts are needed or if a lot of work is required. I always discuss the price with my customers before starting work on a drive.
I have been in the IT business for thirty-two years mostly working on disk array systems. When I decided to start my own data recovery company six years ago I did some intensive training with Scott Moulton and earned my CDRE (Certified Data Recovery Expert) degree. I have since done over 1400 recoveries and the best thing is I love doing it.
I had been in the IT field for a long time and I was making a clone of my work hard drive when it froze up. I ended up turning the computer off and when I turned it back on nothing happened. I was able to get the data back by hooking the drive to a computer with a different operating system. It was thrilling and I realized that I wanted to start my own data recovery company.
