All data retrieval cases are different, and the price of a data retrieval case may fluctuate wildly depending on the situation. The dimensions of the hard disk and also the severity of the damage the drive has endured have a large impact on the amount of work a data recovery professional needs to have the ability to salvage data from it.
By way of example, a clicking hard disk may need its heads replaced to be flashed. Or it might need its firmware repaired and its heads. It may require a number of sets of replacement parts, and its platters may need before the information can be successfully recovered by an engineer from it burnishing.
