our standard data recovery process

Step-by-Step
  1. Create a ticket at DigiBandit.com/ticket,
  2. We’ll test, inspect and diagnose your drive,
  3. Pay a deposit and sign the Data Recovery Agreement,
  4. We’ll start the Data Recovery Process and get as much data back for you as possible,
  5. We’ll copy your Recovered Data onto a new drive and have it ready for you to collect,
  6. Pay the final invoice, collect your Recovered Data on your new Drive and you’re done!

 

Fees & Paperwork
  • The Non-Refundable Data Recovery Fee covers the diagnostics, base rate, tools and software that we use to recover your data,
  • The Data Recovery Agreement (example) covers a general agreement that covers what we are doing and protects both of our interests.

 

Service Fees
  • The pricing of Data Recovery Service fees are tiered, meaning that if your estimate shows “Standard Recovery”, but turns into a “Minor Recovery” you are only charged for the “Minor Recovery” as this includes the cost of performing a “Standard Recovery”
  • If any changes happen that would increase the final price to you, we will ask for approval before continuing!
  • We only charge you these fees if the Data Recovery is successful. We judge success by recovering any amount of data from a drive.
  • For “Standard Recovery” we charge $1/Hr that your drive is being scanned, this is to cover costs for our workstations, power usage, and time.

Covers physical/mechanical issues.

our advanced data recovery process

Please Note

As with most reputable data recovery options, I offer no data, no charge data recovery services, with only the exception of add-on services and when parts (donor drives) are needed.  

The media assessment (non-refundable is $250 (taxes in) and I require that you pre-approve the minor recovery price as outlined below.  This way, if your data is recoverable at the base rate, we keep moving forward until the recovery is completed, speeding up the overall recovery process and helping us keep your costs down.

If the cost to recover the data is more than the minimum price, we will provide an updated estimate and will only move forward with the data recovery process after we receive approval from you.

Step-by-Step
  1. Create a ticket at DigiBandit.com/ticket,
  2. Pay a deposit and sign the Data Recovery Agreement,
  3. We’ll test, open (if needed), inspect and diagnose your drive in Data Recovery Lab,
  4. We’ll send you an estimate for the Data Recovery,
  5. Once the estimate is approved, we’ll start the Data Recovery Process and get as much data back for you as possible,
  6. We’ll copy your Recovered Data onto a new drive and have it ready for you to collect,
  7. Pay the final invoice, collect your Recovered Data on your new Drive and you’re done!

 

Deposit & Paperwork
  • The Non-Refundable Deposit covers the opening and the testing of your drive in a Data Recovery Lab, along with fees for the tools that we use.
  • The Data Recovery Agreement (example) covers a general agreement that covers what we are doing and protects both of our interests.

 

Starting Out
  • The bulk of the cost is determined once the recovery process starts. This is based on how long and how much work is necessary.
  • To start, you must agree to pay the “Minor Recovery” fee, but if the job is more advanced and is considered a “Major Recovery” you will be contacted for approval.

 

Service Fees
  • The pricing of Data Recovery Service fees are tiered, meaning that if your estimate shows “Minor Recovery”, but turns into a “Major Recovery” you are only charged for the “Major Recovery” as this includes the cost of performing a “Minor Recovery”
  • If any changes happen that would increase the final price to you, we will ask for approval before continuing!
