Introduction
Data Recovery is HACKING
Dealing with Client
Under Promise, and then see what happens
Data Recovery can take a LONG TIME
Don't let the client look at data before they pay
Avoid ID10T errors.
Upsell external hard drive, do not copy data to DVD or CD
Procedures
Pick a set of procedures and then stick with it
Avoid "Rabbit Hole to Hell"
Have a file server that can keep data for a few months
Money
A Small shop could charge up to $1000 for data recovery services
I would advise at least a minimal fee $49 because it can take a lot of work
Determine what TYPES of files need to be recovered and then bill based on that, NOT ON SPECIFIC FILE
Final Thoughts...
Data Recovery is EASY money for a service that your clients need
Do you want your kids to go to Harvard? Don't worry about the client's pocketbook.
