The time that it takes for data recovery and its cost to you will depend on several factors. To give an easy example, the recovery of a single file that you have accidentally deleted yourself can be so simple that it could probably be recovered by you, yourself, if you knew just a little about computers.
At the other extreme, if some physical element inside a hard drive has been damaged or broken, or if the surface of the magnetic media has been damaged, this would mean dismantling it in our clean room and this is usually a very involved and lengthy process.
The cost to you would be proportional to the amount of work carried out, whom it was carried out by, and the cost of any replacement parts. If you need a quotation or need further information regarding data loss, contact us on 083 415 5154
