Portable HDDsOur experience with dropped Western Digital My Passport and Seagate Backup Plus drives allows us to maintain a near perfect recovery rate. We also have experience with Toshiba Canvio portable and external drives which are some of the best drives for recovery in our experience.

Data recovery for portable and external HDDs that don’t require clean-bench work typically costs $295. Unlike many recovery companies, this includes recovery media for your recovered data*. For stuck heads and advanced firmware repair the cost is $395. Damaged or crashed drives that need to be opened in a clean bench and have the heads cleaned and/or replaced typically cost $550 for recovery*.
