$9500 for a Recovery?!

December 2nd, 2008 No comments

It happens more often than you might think.  A poor soul send their disk to a “world class recovery specialist that has been in business over 300 years” and gets taken for all they can afford. It works like this: Promises are made to recover the data for a low price, the disk is delivered to the promise making party, the price is raised – many times based on the emotional state of the customer, the customer ends up paying a ridiculous amount for recovery.

Please don’t fall victim to this! Be sure you have a clear view of all prices and markups before doing business. Be sure you ask the right questions. We have seen “estimates” for single volume disks without massive hardware issues totaling over $9500. Luckilly, that customer opted out and sent the drive to us. If you want to be taken care of without the hassle, give us a call.
