Working with Disklabs

Working with us to recover your data couldn’t be simpler.

  • Get a quote: Call us on 01827 55999.
  • Tell us what’s wrong: We’ll give you a realistic assessment of the likelihood of recovery, based on your specific circumstances.
  • Send us your hard drive: Make sure it’s well packaged and use a ‘tracked and signed’ form of delivery.
  • Wait for an update: We’ll inform you on how we’re getting on and how your data recovery is progressing.

On our Standard No Fix/No Fee service, you now have two options:

  • Option 1: You’re happy that we have recovered data that is important to you. You therefore pay our invoice, and we transfer the data onto another hard drive and ship it back to you.
  • Option 2: Unfortunately, the data you were looking for isn’t available – you pay nothing.

If you have chosen one of our other levels of service, the process will be different. Contact us for details.
