  • Data Recovery
    Hard drive crashes can come suddenly and without warning. You may turn on your computer one day and receive an "Operating System not found", "Inaccessible Boot Disk", or similar error. Hard drives typically last 3 to 5 years before failing but can fail as soon as 6 months to 1 year depending on operating conditions or physical trauma. Even if your computer is still under warranty the manufacturer will not assist you in recovering your data, they will simply send you a new hard drive. Data recover labs charge steep fees typically ranging from $500 to $3000 and upwards. If mission critical data worth thousands of dollars is on the line, it may be worth it for you to pay the premium and go with a company like Ontrack or DTI Data. But for many individual users and small businesses, spending thousands of dollars on data recovery is simply not an option. Whether your notebook, desktop, or external hard drive has crashed, there's a good chance your data can be recovered utilizing sophisticated software analysis. Here at On Demand Computer we have successfully recovered accounting and Outlook data for small businesses, years worth of research and writing for graduate students, mp3 music libraries, personal photos, and even a film student's half terabyte of digital video. We can also recover accidentally or maliciously deleted files emptied from the Recycle Bin or deleted via other means. Not sure what happened or when it happened? Just tell us everything you know and we'll give you our honest opinion as to whether the data can be recovered.

     

    When requesting data-recovery services from On Demand Computer, you agree:

    There is a possibility that none of the requested data will be recovered, or that if some data is recovered, it may be corrupt or unusable.

     

    If ANY portion/percentage of requested files are recovered successfully (the files are intact and usable), I will pay the successful data recovery fee of $125.

     

    The data recovery fees On Demand Computer charges are separate from the normal repair procedure of my computer. If requested, additional repair costs will be included to repair the machine in question.

     

    Attempting data recovery on a faulty hard drive MAY CAUSE FURTHER DAMAGE to the drive if the device is malfunctioning. On Demand Computer can only do software-based recovery - there is a chance that working with a failing drive may REDUCE chances of recovering data later, if it is required. Mechanically damaged devices never fix themselves, but they do get worse.

     

    If On Demand Computer does not successfully recover your data, there are other options. A dedicated, clean-room equipped data recovery service may be able to resurrect your drive and bring your data back to life.
