That's what I just did. I got a quote back $65 for diagnosis.
Then it's about $700 to $2000 depending upon various factors.
At that rate, I now understand why none of my customers
actually went through with having their data recovered.
I was just curious what the reality was by people who
actually contracted to have it done.
If I'm not mistaken, a friend of mine recently crashed a 1tb Seagate drive - bad sectors up the wazoo. He took it over to the local Seagate Recovery office and they quoted him something like $700 for a partial recovery.
Yeah, even that is way too much for the average home user.
So I guess it's still something out of reach for most home users.
