Skilled data recovery professionals dedicated to providing expert help.

A lot of companies claim to offer data recovery services.  It is absolutely critical for clients to choose a company that is qualified to handle their problem. Improper data recovery attempts can and will damage your prospects of a successful extraction. We are often able to recover data from hard drives or other storage media where competitors did not achieve success.

Damaged hard drives require specialized help.

Your lost photographs (RAW and JPG), Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Adobe PDFs and other office document file formats; CAD files, music, Quicken and Quickbooks data, Outlook PST and other file formats can be restored. Envescent has a unique set of capabilities that give us the cutting edge in getting your lost information back. Our engineers often recover data that other companies cannot.

We frequently encounter hard drives and other equipment that have been mishandled or destroyed through improper measures. Our process is the most comprehensive possible and no cost or effort is spared to reunite you with your valuable information.

 No two cases are the same. We will ensure your data recovery is handled diligently.

We have three phases of service. Prices and turn around times vary depending on the condition of your hard drive and its file system. Encrypted drives, SSDs,  RAIDs, multiple drives and other non-standard configurations will incur extra data recovery fees depending on the amount of extra effort required.

Your drive will be diagnosed to determine which phase it falls in to and you will be provided with an exact price quote for the data recovery, as well as an estimated turn around time and information about recoverable data (if we are able to determine that post diagnostic). Data recoveries only fall in to one of the following phases (rather than one after the other).

The prices below reflect regular level service. We also have faster expedited service for at a higher cost for emergencies.

  • PHASE 1: If your drive and file system are in relatively good condition and you require a simple extraction. We can extract and copy data to an external hard drive or another computer the estimate cost is usually about $220.00 to $275.00. This covers removal of malware, minor file system repairs, file permission repairs, etc.The PHASE 1 data recovery process usually takes about 2-3 business days (after diagnostics). Please note that PHASE 1 data recovery does not include the removal of encryption from ransomware infected drives or files.
  • PHASE 2: If instead your drive has been damaged and it needs advanced data recovery the estimate ranges between $330.00 to $660.00 depending on the amount of damage and how that complicates the process for us. The average cost of a PHASE 2 data recovery is between $330.00 and $440.00. Most of the cases we see fall within this range.The PHASE 2 data recovery process usually takes about 1-2 business weeks (after diagnostics) depending on the transfer speeds the damaged drive can achieve and any damage that we need to clean up to gain access to your data.

  • PHASE 3: Some drives may be extremely damaged and require mechanical data recovery services. Our clean room invasive data recovery process involves performing microsurgery on the hard drive. This process involves removal of the exterior cover, replacement of the headstack or other components such as the spindle in a clean room environment. This level of severity is only seen in about 10% of our data recovery cases.The PHASE 3 data recovery process costs a flat fee of $990.00. This process usually takes about 3 business weeks (after diagnostics). Turn around times may vary if your drive is extremely damaged.
