Price guide

Recovery jobs are all very different, so a fixed price list is not possible.  The following list is a guide, and remember there is our ’no fix no fee’ promise. In addition, no work will be done that exceeds the typical costs listed below, without full agreement of the customer. CnW will always charge a fair price. There is no advance payment required, and there is no evaluation fee, and so we will investigate  media and let you know if we think it will be possible to restore all or just some of the data.

    Hard disks

    Due to the number of files on a hard disk, and the potential variations of damage or corruption the costs are very variable.
