The Best Hard Drive Recovery Services of 2019

The Verdict

WeRecoverData.com offers a free evaluation of your hard drive, with an in-depth diagnosis and cost estimate. You don't pay for files it can't recover. It's one of the few data recovery services with an ISO 4-certified cleanroom, but this isn't verified.

Cost Structure

WeRecoverData offers multiple levels of service with varying turnaround times. Its standard lab service averages three to five business days, and priority service averages one to three days. Weekend service is also available, and emergency service aims to recover your data between 12 to 24 hours. For special cases, on-site recovery is available as is remote recovery through a secure connection.

Evaluation Process

WeRecoverData's services accommodate all types of data loss, including simple user deletion, mechanically damaged hard drives and RAID failure. Depending on the type of data loss and the severity of the situation,  WeRecoverData can come to your location, recover lost files remotely or perform a recovery at one of its labs.

The service has 47 locations across the U.S. and Canada, which is more than any other data recovery service we reviewed. The ability to drop off your hard drive or other media in person rather than mailing it is an important consideration in a data recovery service, because you don't pay for shipping, and it typically jump-starts the evaluation and recovery process.

WeRecoverData's evaluation process is one of its biggest strengths. It offers a no-recovery, no-charge guarantee and a free evaluation. The free assessment includes a detailed diagnosis of your hard drive's condition and what it'll cost to recover the data. The standard evaluation takes eight hours to one day, which makes it one of the fastest data recovery services for evaluating a damaged hard drive.

Recovery Environment

WeRecoverData doesn't post third-party certification for its cleanrooms on its website. The company informed us that it complies with ISO 4 Class 10 (which is a more stringent standard) and ISO 5 Class 100 requirements, a standard used by hard drive manufacturers. However, the labs are self-certified.

Security Features

Like other top data recovery services we reviewed, WeRecoverData has several security measures in place to protect your data. It is SSAE 16 SOC 2 (Type II) and SOC 3 certified. This is the only service to have undergone both audits.

Security is one of the most important aspects of a hard drive recovery service. Each of the service's locations is equipped with physical security features, including 24-hour surveillance. Additionally, all personnel undergo thorough background checks and sign confidentiality agreements.

WeRecoverData.com provides excellent hard drive data recovery. It has experience in all types of data-loss situations and proprietary recovery technology to handle complex cases. It's one of the few data recovery services claiming to have cleanrooms that meet ISO 4 and ISO 5 standards, but they haven't been certified by a third party. The security features are comprehensive and come with a SOC 2 (Type II) and SOC 3 audit from a third party.
