Many people refer to data recovery services as a spare part. You keep it around or know where it is, but hope you never have to use it. And like spare parts, services for data recovery can be the only way to make things work again. Or, at least at a drastically faster rate than getting a new part. In this case, this spare service can restore lost, corrupted, damaged, or deleted data from a variety of storage devices. And, while some use software to retrieve data remotely, the companies on this list of the best data recovery services in USA primarily physical repair and restoration. So, let’s begin, shall we?
1. ACE Data Recovery
ACE Data Recovery is our top choice among the top data recovery services in USA. It’s also likely the oldest – it was founded in 1981. Furthermore, the company bills hourly instead of a one-time fee, which is unusual. Plus, they have a rare A+ rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Moreover, they have 3 ISO 5 Class 100 labs in Chicago, Houston, and Dallas. Luckily, there are plenty of drop-off points across the United States. They perform data retrieval from HDDs, SSDs, SD cards, USB drives, and tape drives, RAID arrays, WMware virtual machines, Novell networks, and keep the data for 5 days.
2. SecureData Recovery
SecureData Recovery is our runner-up for the best USA data recovery services title. Based in California, it has 40+ locations across the U.S. The service provider can extract data from hard and solid disk drives, RAID arrays, NAS/SAN, USB, and tape drives, servers, virtual machines, desktop, and mobile devices, and even databases with a 96% recovery rate. The company also boasts an SSAE 18 Type II security certification, free evaluation, and a “no recovery, no pay” policy. What’s more, it offers a 24/7 Emergency (up to 48 hours), Expedited (2 to 4 days), and Standard (4 to 9 days) retrieval process.
3. Ontrack Data Recovery
Ontrack Data Recovery also landed a spot on our top data recovery services in Toronto list. Evidently, its American headquarters ranked higher and has been active slightly longer, since 1985. They boast the same success rate, though, over 90%. Likewise, they offer a free evaluation within 4 hours, and free shipping on an encrypted HDD or uploading to the Internet. This service covers restoring data from HDDs, SSDs, magnetic tapes, USB drives, laptops, RAID arrays, and cloud services. It also applies to servers, mobile devices, virtual machines, and CCTV DVR equipment.
DataRecovery.com, like SecureData Recovery, has had ISO 4 Class 10 clean rooms, only this time in Illinois, California, and Arizona. Also, on top of what you’d expect regularly, the company has the ability to recover files after a ransomware attack, from virtual machines, and even lost or stolen Bitcoin. We also love their “no data, no recovery” policy. They also commit to charging the initially estimated price, even if more work is needed later. The company works with NASA and the Department of Homeland Security and has retrieved medical data after the 2001 9/11 attack, which speaks volumes.
WeRecoverData, on top of free shipping, consultation, and evaluation, offers a “no data, no fee” policy and multiple urgency-based payment plans. Moreover, they have both ISO 4 Class 10 and ISO 5 Class 100 labs and SSAE16 Certified & HIPAA certificates. This ensures a high degree of security, and the ability to handle medically sensitive data. It’s no surprise, then, that they work with the local and federal US government agencies. They also invest heavily in research, development, and application of new processes, and unlike others, offer emergency on-site recovery of data.
6. SalvageData Recovery
SalvageData Recovery, besides the free delivery, evaluation, and estimation, has a “no data, no charge” guarantee, and a 96% success rate. Additionally, you can submit the drive/device to 40 locations in America. They will be forwarded to the company’s ISO 5 Class 100 labs for restoration. Furthermore, the company has HIPAA medical and an SSAE 16 Type III SOC security certificates. Unsurprisingly, they’re the official GSA (General Services Administration) contractor. Another outstanding thing is that they upload up to 50 GB (Economy), 100 GB (Expedited), or 500 GB (Emergency) of retrieved data.
7. DataTech Labs
Like Datarecovery.com and SalvageData, and unlike ACE Data Recovery, DataTech Labs has a HIPAA certificate. The service also has 3 ISO 5 Class 100 clean-rooms in Denver, Dallas, and Boston, and a plethora of drop-off locations throughout the USA. Furthermore, they don’t charge shipping, nor examination, and estimation and offer a Rushed Service for an extra fee. The company is also accredited by the BBB with an A+ rating, works with the U.S. government, and offers both digital (up to 9 GB) and physical (9 GB+) transfer of recovered data.
8. Disk Doctors
Disk Doctors has ISO 5 Class 100 clean-rooms in Georgia, their headquarters, and Maryland, and an abundance of affiliates in the U.S. The company also abides by HIPAA standards and is known as one of the low-cost data recovery services in USA. The service deals with RAID arrays, SAN/NAS devices, HDD, SSD, SD cards, USB and tape drives, and other devices you’d expect. Disk Doctors offers free shipping, drive/device examination, and price estimation. They also sign NDA, and destroy data from their servers after 2 weeks, and upload up to 40 GB of recovered files.
9. DriveSavers Data Recovery
DriveSavers Data Recovery has the usual features: free shipping, evaluation, and no charge unless recovery is successful. The company also accepts devices and drives you’d expect and does the work in ISO 5 Class 100 clean-room. Where they excel is 24/7 Customer Service, expertise (founded in 1985), and service plans. By the last option, we mean ASAP (Priority), within 1-2 business days (Standard), or 5-7 for desktop/10-14 business days for smart devices (Economy). Top storage device and drive manufacturers also authorize DriveSavers to open mechanisms without voiding the warranty.
Gillware Data Recovery is among the newest data recovery companies since it was founded in 2004 in Wisconsin. And, even though they have a single ISO 5 Class-100 certified clean-room, the company has 2000+ affiliate services, which you can use for advice, referral, or to submit drives/devices. Additionally, the company claims to have worked on 100,000+ storage devices and performed over 200,000 hours of data recovery work. Speaking of devices, they support all you’d envision, but the service provider is best known as a VMFS data retrieval expert recommended by VMWare.
