Hurricane Katrina/Rita Flood Data Recovery Service

September 28, 2005

Hurricane Katrina flooded thousands of homes and businesses, and the destruction left in its wake will probably prove to be the worst flood damage from a hurricane in US history. If you have a home or business data loss emergency resulting from Katrina or Rita, would like to help in the only way we know how, and that is to recover your data. For cases in which a data loss emergency has resulted from hurricane Rita or Katrina, we are offering a 20% discount on all of our services as well as a free 100GB Maxtor Onetouch hard drive for data return. If you are considering using a data recovery service, one thing you should know is that time is critical when attempting recovery on a flood-damaged hard drive or RAID. This is because corrosion can take place in a matter of days. A complete diagnostic hard disk data recovery evaluation will begin immediately after receiving the disk(s) via walk-in, courier, or FedEx Priority Overnight. Our data recovery experts will then be assigned around the clock (24/7) until your data is recovered. After the evaluation, you will receive a not-to-exceed (NTE) quote and turnaround estimate. Price is based on time required for completion. Most priority flood recoveries have a five to seven day turnaround (single disk). When the recovery is finished, the data is shipped via Federal Express priority overnight. Please call us at 1.800.237.4200 for more details, and to check availability.
