What Factors Determine the Cost of Recovery? There are several factors that data recovery engineers consider when determining cost. The main factor is the time required to perform the necessary steps to ensure a safe and effective recovery procedure. Other factors include technology research and development, and when necessary, parts and equipment fees.
What is Data Recovery? Data recovery is a professional service in which digital information is recovered from a hard drive, web server, cell phone, or other device. This process is usually performed in a cleanroom by trained engineers. Damaged devices are temporarily repaired or data platters is moved to a working device and the data is transferred to a second device (usually an external hard drive or flash drive). When files are deleted, corrupt, or otherwise damaged, engineers will work directly with the data to restore them, using software tools to return access.
