how much does it cost to recover data from a hard drive

This post will be divided into two parts. The first part - Part 1 is about how much does it cost for data recovery software. While the second part - Part 2 is about how much the data recovery service charges. Usually, you only need data recovery software if you deleted or formatted your hard drive accidentally. If you encounter a problem that cannot be solved by the data recovery software, you need to turn to a manual data recovery service. Now, let's talk about the data recovery prices.

Part 1. How Much Does It Cost Using Data Recovery Software

Everyone asks us on our chats "I formatted my hard drive by accident. Can you recover the data for me? My data is very precious and important." Your money is important, so is your data. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard offers a complete range of data recovery options to recover deleted data according to different data loss scenarios. Choose the most suitable data recovery option according to your need.

The Factors That Determine Data Recovery Costs

Data recovery costs can vary between $0 and $149.95. The factors that determine data recovery costs include:

1 - The Size of Data

EaseUS data recovery software also offers a free version to recover up to 2GB of data for free. Thus, if the lost data less than 2GB, you can recover hard drive data for free. If the data is more than 2GB, you need to spend at least $69.95 to get back lost data.

2 - The Problem Type

The other thing that determines how much you spend is the type of problem you encounter. Usually, EaseUS file recovery software can do the following things for you:

  • Deleted file recovery
  • RAW recovery
  • Formatted recovery
  • More data recovery (virus attack, human error, power failure, system crash, OS re-installation/upgrade...)

Factors That Affect Data Recovery Service Prices

Customers look for professional data recovery help when data storage devices are not being recognized, data gets corrupted, and more. Several factors affect the cost of data recovery services.

  • The type of device failure
  • The size of the storage devices
  • Data recovery lab equipment and operational costs
  • Professional data recovery engineer labor
  • Desired turnaround time

Data Recovery Service Charges for SD Cards, Hard Drives, and SSD

Data recovery professionals spend their days recovering lost data from all kinds of devices, including HDDs, SSDs, USB flash drives, memory cards, external hard drives, and more. But despite the huge differences between these devices, there is not much difference in the cost of data recovery service. Look at the table to know the cost of the data recovery service.

Storage Device Data Loss Situation Data Recovery Cost
HDD Logical/Physical Hard drive recovery cost starts from $199 to $999
(Varies as per capacity of the hard drive)
SD Card/Memory Card Logical/Physical SD card recovery cost starts from $199 to $999
(Varies as per capacity of SD card)
Pen Drive/Flash Drive Logical/Physical Pen drive recovery cost starts from $199 to $999
(Varies as per capacity of pen drive)
SSD Logical/Physical SSD recovery cost starts from $199 to $999
(Varies as per capacity of SSD)

Which Is the Best Choice? DIY or Data Recovery Services

When you are considering choosing one of the services, you can take the following questions into account:

  • Is the issue mechanical or logical?
  • Which do you value more: convenience or cost?
  • Do you have the time/knowledge to perform this work on your own?

If you are experiencing mechanical difficulties, it's best to have a professional perform the work. And either way, you may find that sending your hard drive to a specialist is the safest, most reliable way to ensure you get your data back.

Conclusion

Data recovery software applications can be used to recover deleted files, formatted hard drives, and other data loss scenarios involving logical damage. They can't, however, recover data from mechanically damaged storage devices. There's no way to overcome this limitation of data recovery software applications.
