Data Recovery Scenarios Causes, Solutions, and Cost Estimates


The graphic above shows the variety of causes for lost data and the general costs for recovery.

The prices shown are based on an estimate of $70 – $90 per hour, and going clockwise, the estimated time required for recovery increases.

When drives have a mechanical or circuit board failure, then additional equipment and time is required to perform the recovery. The extend of drive damage will determine the cost of recovery.

These are estimates only. The actual cost may be above or below these estimates.
