$300 Data Recovery Offers $50 Discount For All Data Recovery Services to Those Affected By the Wildfires

We recover what you can't replace.

$300 Data Recovery, the number one rated data recovery company based on customer reviews, has announced a $50 discount on its services to anyone affected by the wildfires in the Canadian municipality of Fort McMurray in Alberta.

“As people return to their homes they may not realize that it’s often possible to recover data from hard drives damaged by different factors related to natural disasters like heat, moisture, or impact,” said owner and founder Brian Cometa.

The Canadian has government announced that a portion of the 80,000 evacuees may begin returning to their homes starting on June 1, weather permitting. Some may find that their single hard drives or RAID systems have damaged by heat, impact, fire, water, or power surges related to the wildfire. All are eligible for the discount.

Cometa explained that, as a rule of thumb, do not power on or tamper with a damaged hard drive; it could make the data more difficult or impossible to recover. “If a hard drive has been damaged by smoke or fire, don’t try to clean it,” Cometa said. “And if it has gotten wet during firefighting don’t dry it off. Put it in a sealable, airtight plastic bag.“

$300 Data Recovery can help victims of the fire learn whether or not their data is likely to be recovered before mailing in their hard drive with an online Chances Form. Prices are clearly stated and they can call (323) 230-0622 if they don’t have Internet access yet.

The company places a high value on pricing transparency. Few data recovery companies explicitly listed the cost of their services when Cometa founded $300 Data Recovery in 2007-- so he took his business in a different direction. There is no diagnostic fee and no charge if his team cannot retrieve a customer’s data.

“I felt like other companies took advantage of stressful situations people are in when their hard drives don’t work,” he explained. “They’ll reveal additional fees after the work is done and many don’t list the cost of their work at all—you have to send them your hard drive and wait for an emailed cost estimate. Then they might only provide a range of prices (e.g. $1200-$2500). With us, there are no surprises and we’ll keep you informed of our progress every step of the way.”
