Digital Data Recovery
If recovering a particular set of images or files from a flash card requires searching through multiple cards, there is $20 charge per card on top the standard recovery cost. For declined or unsuccessful recoveries, there is an $8.00 return shipping cost if you wish to have your card or drive returned to you.
Hard Drive Recovery
We also recover External Drives, Portable Drives, Laptops, Computers, Hard Drives, Digital Wallets, Nixvue, Digibin, MindStor, Imagetank, External Drives, Portable Drives, Laptops, Computer Hard Drives or any other type of storage device.
We offer a free diagnostic service to look at your drive and determine the amount of work required, after which we will give you a firm quote for recovery. Once a quote is made, we will honor that price in all situations unless a Level 1 recovery is later determined to require Level 2 work.
Level 1 versus Level 2 recoveries depend on the severity of file corruption or physical damage to the drive. Level 1 work accounts for approx 80% of all recoveries and covers the recovery lost files and corrupted data tables. Level 2 work accounts for the remaining 20% and covers most instances of physical damage, failed logic boards and crashed read/write heads. Level 1 work is frequently completed within a week from being quoted. Level 2 work requires a minimum of two to three weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of cloning my hard drive?
In case of a major hard drive failure, you would be back up and running
in a matter of minutes allowing your business to continue with minimal
I do daily backups of my data, isn't that enough?
Daily backups only back up your data, NOT operating systems, programs, system configurations, settings etc.. This is why we can not emphasize enough the importance of cloning your hard drive. Tallyn's Drive-Cloning Service will replicate all of your programs, software and configurations. Your data will be cloned as of the date that this service is performed. As long as the cloned drive is put in a SIMILAR machine with SIMILAR hardware, a cloned drive will function just as it was prior to your original drive failure. This service is not intended to replace your normal backup procedure which is extremely important!
Should I clone all of my drives?
In most cases you would only clone the primary server or workstation that is most important to your business. You will have peace of mind knowing that your business will not shut down in case of a drive or hardware failure.
Where should I store the cloned drive?
We highly recommend that you either store the cloned drive in a fire proof safe or store it off site.
What happens if my drive fails and I have no clone?
Without a cloned drive, you would have to find a replacement drive, install the operating system with drivers, redo your configuration, and reload ALL your software before you could reload your last backup. Now consider this, is a copy of your operating system software, programs, and drivers for your systems hardware readily available? Did you keep any notes on your system configuration? What about all the updates to your system since you've been using it? This process could take anywhere from 8 hours to two weeks to complete and most would require some professional help to get this done. Can your business afford to be down for a few hours? ...Days? ...Weeks?
