Why you need a Data Recovery Device What to look for when buying a Data Recovery Device Class Notes
Introduction Data recovery devices generally only extract the bits and bytes from a dying hard drive and put them on a good hard drive so that you can extract the data from a stable hard drive. You can use Linux for the same results, but you have to know linux... About Generally cost between $1000-$5000 More expensive devices do more then you need We use a YEC Ninja, but there may be better devices available Data Recovery Devices can scan hard drives in reverse and do other things software alone cannot do. Final Thoughts We billed at least $200 if a client hard drive was connected to our Ninja. You could realistically charge up to $400. Linux may be better, but beware the "Rabbit Hole to Hell" if your employees start troubleshooting the data recovery computer versus just pressing a button on a data recovery device. Data Recovery devices can take a long time to run!
