How Much Does Data Recovery Cost?

Go away blue screen!
Ok, so the worst has just happened and rather than the dog eating your homework, your computer has decided to crash and gone is all your hard work, pictures, music and emails. Well, don’t fret; gone doesn’t really mean gone where computers are concerned.

There are two places you can turn for help in order to recover your data. The first is an actual computer repair shop and the second is do-it-yourself software for data and USB data recovery. So that begs the question: how much should data recovery cost? Well, the answer is: it depends. It depends first on the computer shop. They’re going to charge you based on the number of files, size of hard drive and if any damage was done to the hard drive. Data recovery cost in this case can range from less than $100.00 to more than $1000.00.

Software, on the other hand, may be able to perform USB data recovery and other forms of data retrieval, and these programs typically range between $100.00 and $200.00 depending on the sophistication of the program. The data recovery cost in this case is minimal but you’re taking the chance that there is no physical damage to the drive which would require a trip to the repair shop for your hard drive.
