Chip & Bytes Data Recovery can help to recover your lost data without spending thousands of dollars for traditional data recovery. We are able to help a large percentage of our clients recover all or most of their data for our set rate. Most hard drives do not need expensive physical repairs or replacement parts for data recovery
Will you be able to get my data?
When it comes to Data Recovery, there is no way to know without inspecting your drive. Our famous Free Diagnostic enables us to confidently say whether or not we feel data is recoverable. We do diagnostics in-store for all of North County, from Oceanside to Escondido, at our San Marcos, CA and Carlsbad, CA locations.
When it comes to Data Recovery, if we do not recover anything there is no fee – so we will not recommend to proceed unless we feel there is a high chance of success.
Do I have to pay if you only get some data?
Unfortunately, there is no way for us to determine exactly what was on your hard drive before it failed, or exactly what files you were using or not using. Therefore, if we do recover any data with intact integrity (files that can be opened and are functional) our flat rate will apply.
What if you are not able to recover my data?
If we are not able to recover your data we can recommend organizations that will take your data recovery to the next step. This can be a very expensive option.
If you would prefer that we deal with these organizations on your behalf we would be more than happy to. Our standard Data Recovery rate will apply, and we will ship, negotiate fees, and receive the drive on your behalf.
What type of external hard drive should I buy?
We strongly prefer full-size external hard drives such as the Western Digital My Book. External hard drives that are compact in size utilize laptop hard disks internally – often with little or no shock protection or heat mitigation. These units are failure-bound compared to the large, better protected, more ventilated units.
I am in the Marine Corps serving at Camp Pendleton and due to deploy soon. Will I get my data in time?
Due to our close proximity to Oceanside, and being that we are the only computer repair shop near Oceanside, CA to offer flat rate fees – we are able to help a lot of men and women serving in the US armed forces headed to our location from Camp Pendleton. We are very sensitive to your needs around deployment time, and will make every effort to recover your data (or complete any other computer or iphone repair for that matter) on time!
