  3. Drives will be evaluated to determine if it is a "software" or "hardware" failure.
  4. Cherry will provide a flat-rate price, and require authorization before proceeding.
  5. Evaluation results for most devices are guaranteed within 24 hours (1 business day).
  6. Call us at 770.955.2395 or 1.800.500.2840 if you need help or assistance.

NOTE: RAID, NAS, SAN, Cell Phone & Tablet evaluations are exceptions. A 48-hour evaluation is necessary to determine condition and recoverability for these devices, and their may be some fees involved. We will always get your approval before moving forward.

Also, Optional Services will let you choose how you want the device returned.

STEP 3: Discovery File Listing

You may choose for us to pull a file listing before going to the data recovery process. A file listing will show the recoverable documents found on your damaged device before committing to the price of the full data recovery process.

If you choose to go this route, we will require payment up front, and a 48-hour window (2 business days) is provided to review the file listing. After reviewing the files, you may choose to stop the process and the investment you have already paid will be your only cost. If you choose to move forward with the data recovery process, we will credit the investment you paid toward your data recovery total.

The data recovery process is time scheduled based on your urgency. Needed replacement parts are pulled from our extensive inventory or ordered from our network of suppliers.

You choose the most convenient and cost-effective option for you.
