The Decline Of Data Recovery Services

After the fallout of the tech boom of the late 1990’s, Internet marketers had few money making options left. The get rich quick scheme based on a potentially good idea was no longer feasible. However, one market did stand alone, unwavering; the data recovery services and software industry.

Prior to the new millennium there were only a handful of legitimate data recovery companies. Data recovery was expensive and a necessity in certain situations. With an expensive necessity, the new Internet marketers made their way into the data recovery industry.

To date the amount of data recovery companies has increased exponentially over the last 5 years. How did all of these companies emerge with a claim of decades of experience? The truth is, more than likely, that they are not qualified to do any type of data recovery other than logical system failures that can be performed with data recovery software.

Companies making claims to recover data from any drive, regardless of size from $199.00 to $300.00 is unrealistic. In reality, if they were to exhaust every option of recovery on each drive they would quickly become bankrupt.

Data recovery from internal failures of the hard drives read/write heads can be quite costly in parts alone for a data recovery company. Do the math. Let’s say we have a 250GB Hard drive with malfunctioning read/write heads. The data recovery company would need to replace the read/write heads. This constitutes an expenditure on the behalf of the data recovery company equal to the price of a 250GB hard drive. Let us also assume that the platters have acquired damage in an area that originally caused the head crash, which has now caused the replacement read/write heads to crash. The defective area on the platter is noted and avoided after another head replacement. Again, another cost acquired by the data recovery company equal to the cost of the 250GB hard drive.

So indicative of the math there is no way for a data recovery company to stay in business using this business model.

At DTI Data Recovery we offer flat rate pricing on the majority of hard drive recovery. The only exceptions are on RAID systems. DTI also offers a no data no charge policy on the majority of hard drive recoveries. Again the only exceptions are on RAID systems or if the hard drive was opened outside of our clean room. Don’t be fooled by companies that offer low prices on physical data recovery. On the other side, there is no reason whatsoever for a company to not give a flat rate price on single hard drive data recovery! Companies that quote prices in a range from $500 to $3500 will more than likely to charge as much money as they think that you will pay for data recovery.
