Data Recovery FAQs

  • What is data recovery?

    Data recovery is the process of retrieving inaccessible, lost, corrupted, or formatted data from storage devices such as hard drives, SSDs, USBs, or memory cards when the data cannot be accessed through normal means.

  • How much does data recovery cost?

    The cost of recovery can vary widely depending on the complexity of the case, ranging from £50 for basic data retrieval to over £1,000 for more complex recovery efforts involving physically damaged drives.

  • How do data recovery services work?

  • What are raw files in data recovery?

    In data recovery, 'RAW files' refer to a system state where the file system is unreadable by the operating system, making the data appear as a raw stream of bytes. Recovery software is needed to reconstruct these files into usable data.
