Data Recovery Prices

Price changes coming into effect June 1st, 2017

As with most reputable data recovery labs, Recovery Force offers no data, no charge data recovery services, with only the exception of add-on services and when parts are needed.  Our assessment is free, but we do require that clients pre-approve the minor recovery price as outlined below.  This way, when our team assesses your hard drive and are able to recover your data at our base rate, we keep moving forward until the recovery is completed, speeding up the overall recovery process and helping us keep your costs down by our not wasting time on recoveries that aren’t worth our minimum fees.

If the cost to recover the data is more than the minimum price, we will provide a quote and will only move forward with the data recovery process after we receive approval from the client.

RAID Data Recovery Pricing

RAID data recovery prices will vary based on several different factors:

  • Number of drives in the array
  • Condition of each drive in the array
  • Complexity of the RAID (ie, RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 10, RAID 50, etc)
  • Type of file system on the RAID array

Minimum price is calculated on the number of drives times the minimum price ($350 CAD) for a single hard drive.  For example:

A 3 drive RAID 5 minimum cost is: $350 x 3 = $1050CAD
A 6 drive RAID 10 minimum cost is: $350 x 6 = $2100CAD

As RAID recoveries can get very complex, we are unable to post a maximum price.
