“The plus was that they do the evaluation for free”
I had many years’ worth of digital pics, ALL my ITunes music, and tons of movies on my external hard drive when it stopped working. It was just dead, totally unreadable. I took it in to the ‘Geeks’ at Best Buy. They told me that there was nothing they could do for me. My only hope would be a data recovery service adding it would be pricey. There was a guy behind me in line who told me he had good luck getting data back from a flash drive with the dudes at My Data Recovery Lab. The plus was that they do the evaluation for free. The dudes at My Data Recovery Lab were cool and easy to work with. They did exactly what they said in my evaluation. They were able to retrieve my files in 3 days for the price they quoted, plus I had to buy another drive. The guys at Best Buy said it would likely cost around $1000 but I got much better price than that, so I was pretty happy about that. After my positive experience my BF decided to try them out with an old drive he had given up on after being told it would cost him a minimum of $500 with no guarantee that the files could be recovered. He really wanted his pictures mostly but couldn’t justify $500 with no guarantee. My Data Recovery Lab said that they would not charge him if they were unable to get the files he requested so he went for it. Again, success! They were able to recover all the picture files and about 75% of the rest.
