These 7 Questions Will Help You Choose a Trustworthy Company To Recover Your Files...It is important for you to ask these questions if you are looking for a local data recovery service because most data recovery companies want you to believe they are local when in fact they're not.
If you're like most people, this is probably the first time you have been faced with a serious data loss situation. You don't know what to do, where to go or which questions to ask.
Losing your pictures, QuickBooks files, SQL database or any other data puts you in crises mode. It feels like you've lost everything. Because of that and the fact that for most people, getting data recovered from a failed storage device is a once-in-a-lifetime event, you are vulnerable to less-than-truthful practices that this industry engages in. That makes finding and choosing a trustworthy data recovery company a very difficult task.
We encourage you to call several companies and ask these key questions so you can avoid being deceived and to help you make an informed decision about choosing a company to recover your data...
Ask these questions to help you choose a data recovery service provider you can trust...
1) Where do I take my drive to start the recovery process?
2) Do you have a cleanroom technician and employees in that location?
3) Can I see your cleanroom when I bring my drive?
4) Can I talk to the engineer during the recovery process?
5) What do you charge if you only recover part of my data?
6) Is a new drive or device included in the recovery price?
7) Will my data be recovered at the location I'm dropping my hard drive or storage device off at?
The answers to those questions will reveal the fact that most data recovery companies are using virtual offices and drop and ship locations to make you believe they're local...
We do not use fake (virtual) business addresses like many other data recovery companies who claim to perform local data recovery in most major cities across the U.S. There are no data recovery services or staff at a virtual office. The address is real, but no physical space is allocated to a virtual office. It's a deception.
Companies who use virtual addresses just want you to think they perform recoveries locally so they can get your business. However, as soon as your hard drive is dropped off (handed over to the lobby receptionist), it is shipped by the building's staff to an office or lab elsewhere. This is a very deceptive practice, common in the data recovery industry. It is legal but not ethical, of course. Google the address you're considering taking your hard drive to, and if you find other businesses using the same address and suite number, you can bet that your drive will be shipped out of state and that your data will not be recovered at the location where you dropped it off.
