Do you know that Recovery Force provides RAID data recovery services at a fraction of the price of our major competitors? Most major data recovery labs seem to be quoting anywhere from $1000 – $1500 per hard drive in the RAID array, as a base price, while Recovery Force’s base rate is always our single hard drive base rate (currently $350) per hard drive in the RAID array.  A common 4 drive RAID 5 NAS would cost between $4000 and $6000 plus at many labs. At Recovery Force, the typical cost for such a case is $1400 Canadian Dollars which is about $1100 US Dollars based on the exchange rate the day this post was written.

To quickly answer the question of many who might be reading this post, “what is a RAID?”  Simply put, it is the joining of multiple hard drives in a way that makes your computer think that there is a single large hard drive connected.

We recently had a 5 drive RAID 5 from a QNAP NAS that was brought in with multiple drive failures. We quickly diagnosed the case, found that a few drives had some bad sectors and firmware issues and we completed the full recovery in 2 days for $1750 (5 x $350) which is our base rate for a 5 drive RAID. The client later informed us that he was told by another lab that their minimum price would be $15,000 USD which is approximately $19,000 CAD. That is 10 times the price he paid Recovery Force. Furthermore, he had his data back in his hands before the other lab would have even received the drives if he had shipped it to them in the US.

As the complexity of RAID recoveries increase, so will our prices and those of our competitors; but, not at the same rate. Things that would drive the cost of a RAID recovery up are damaged heads, virtualization, unusual file systems, RAID configurations and damage caused by attempted repairs and/or recovery attempts which alter the data.

If you are looking for a data recovery lab who can provide you with more affordable RAID data recovery services, without compromise, quality and security, Recovery Force is the data recovery lab you are seeking.  We also provide discounts for clients who are reselling our services.
