Packing & Shipping:
Hard Drive Recovery Disk Packaging Instructions
DTI Data Recovery recommends shipping your return via registered/certified mail or with a carrier that provides a tracking number like Fed-Ex or UPS.
- Remove all brackets, adapters and cables.
- Do not send the hard drive in its external casing or with any type of adapter, cable or converter.
- Enclose each hard drive in an anti-static electrostatic discharge (ESD) bag and seal. Aluminum foil can be used as a last resort.
- Use thick foam rubber to secure the hard drive on all sides during shipment. When shipping more than one hard drive, ensure that the hard drives do not touch and are cushioned individually.
- DO NOT use foam peanuts, cloth, paper, newspaper or padded envelopes.
- Use a corrugated cardboard box for the exterior packaging.
Basic Laptop Hard Drive Recovery Disk Packaging Instructions:
Fill out a hard drive recovery request form and include it in your package.
- If at all possible, remove the media from the computer. Get expert help if necessary. Send us just the hard drive(s), tape(s), floppy, jaz, zip, optical, flashcard, microdrive etc..
- Handle a hard disk drive as you would handle an egg. Handle failed hard disk drives with the same care as new drives.
Use the original shipping materials, if you still have them. If not, they are relatively easy to replicate.
- Wrap media in an anti-static bag or tinfoil to prevent Static Electricity.
- Use a box that is at least twice the size of the media so that the media can be suspended in the middle of the box. We recommend a minimum of two inches of insulation all around for a 1 Kilo drive.
- Pack securely with foam, bubble wrap, or newspaper so the media will not move from the middle of the box. Avoid using peanuts as contents will settle to the bottom of the box.
- If sending a computer, laptop or notebook, use great care to ensure proper cushioning and protection. We recommend at least 6 inches for insulation. The heavier the unit, the more insulation required.
At one point or another everyone will face the need for hard drive recovery. Call DTI if your disk is making any peculiar noises or acting slow.
