Introduction to Data Recovery
Purpose of Class
This class teaches students the purpose of data recovery devices and what to look for when purchasing their own.
Why you need a Data Recovery Device
What to look for when buying a Data Recovery Device
Data recovery devices generally only extract the bits and bytes from a dying hard drive and put them on a good hard drive so that you can extract the data from a stable hard drive.
You can use Linux for the same results, but you have to know linux…
Generally cost between $1000-$5000
More expensive devices do more then you need
We use a YEC Ninja, but there may be better devices available
Data Recovery Devices can scan hard drives in reverse and do other things software alone cannot do.
We billed at least $200 if a client hard drive was connected to our Ninja. You could realistically charge up to $400.
Linux may be better, but beware the “Rabbit Hole to Hell” if your employees start troubleshooting the data recovery computer versus just pressing a button on a data recovery device.
Data Recovery devices can take a long time to run!
