No, that is not necessary. The only thing registered mail provides is a proof of receipt. I will, of course, accept delivery, and I will immediately confirm the package’s arrival via email. Registered mail is no safer than a standard mailing. I have received thousands of orders since 2007 from worldwide customers, and nobody has ever reported a loss.
If necessary, I will arrange a discount that is fair to both parties.
Usually 5 business days. If you require a quick turn-around time, please note it on the order form. Rush orders will be completed within 1 to 3 days without additional costs.
By bank transfer or with PayPal. Payment details will be included with the invoice once the data recovery is complete.
For the retrieval of the raw data, the storage medium is opened and the memory chips are removed from the printed circuit board. The data in the memory chips, however, are not changed by this procedure, leaving the possibility of repeating the rescue operation.
There is a charge of 24 € if you choose data delivery on a storage medium. If you would like the demounted storage medium to be returned to you then there are costs of 5 € for the return postage.
The return of the demounted memory card/USB drive together with the rescued data is associated with increased cost and is only possible if you have stated it explicitly in your order.
No; the cost of the rescue procedure is not substantially reduced in such a case. Given a particular storage medium capacity, the work involved in the rescue procedure is the same whether I recover 1 or 1000 files.
|I had a problem with a 4GB PNY SD memory card for my camera. I came back from holidays having taken hundreds of photos only to find that it no longer read the card. I tried several other cameras, card readers, laptops, desktops etc, but they didn’t register or recognise the card either. I called into some IT and camera shops in Dublin but after paying €25 each time to see if they could fix it, I had no option but to try elsewhere and had to send it away to a specialist data recovery company, where they would preform some physical 'surgery' on the card. I contacted several places in Ireland and the UK, but their quotes were so expensive: at least €300, and in one case €600! Other places wanted to charge a minimum €45 investigation fee, but wouldn’t provide any rough cost estimates as to how much it would cost afterwards, thus leaving me totally open to being exploited, and being charged whatever they liked. I spent days trying to find a place and almost gave up, but eventually came across a company called Recoverfab in Germany. They’re prices are listed on their website, so everything was totally transparent and correct. I sent the memory card on Friday evening, and at 7am Monday morning I got an email to say it had arrived. 2 days later they confirmed that they had retrieved all the data and provided a sample 50 photos for inspection. They were thoroughly professional and efficient in their approach and service, and would definitely recommend them! Hope this helps!|
|I was recently in a similar situation and had a physically damaged memory card. I am a professional photographer and had just completed a paid shoot when out of nowhere, some of the electronic pins on the top of the card quit functioning. After having about 20 panic attacks, I calmed myself down and started looking into my options. I initially tried a camera chain store's data recovery, but they were unable to save all but 10 out of 300 photos. A colleague recommended a service called Recoverfab, where they actually unsolder the memory card to access the chip inside and pull the data off. I looked into it and shipped my memory card off with my fingers crossed. Lo and behold, within a day of receiving the card, they saved EVERY SINGLE photo (in both .jpg and .nef formats). Not only did they save my photos, but they totally saved my reputation, too. I highly, highly recommend them if you want to get your images back. (I do not work for Recoverfab. I am simply a very satisfied customer.)|
|happend to me too! i dont think software will work if the controller on your card is corrupt. I found this out the hard way - i had just returned from vacation and found my card to be inaccessable. Once you cant read the card no software is going to work. So i looked around for card recovery and found one company - they are in germany which made me somewhat unsure about it. but i sent them the card priority mail and 4 days later i had a preview of my lost pics on their website. Company is RecoverFab, i would use them again.|
|Hey, I've had a similar experience and it's been resolved successfuly making me very relieved so just thought I'd recommend the guys that helped out. My memory card stopped working after I removed it from the computer without first clicking on remove hardware. maybe it was a surge or something, the result was my camera and computer wouldn't read it no matter how hard I tried. I got a new reader, tried different computers and even downloaded some free software but still couldn't get any sign of life from it. There were loads of photos on there from a friend's birthday so I was really stressing. After searching online I found Recoverfab, within three days of posting they had found the photos and recovered all of them.|
|MY SD data was recovered! Recoverfab is one of the best companies I have EVER dealt with, online or otherwise. I just looked at my recovered pictures today, actually. I'm so excited. At least look at this site. A tiny piece of the case (the corner) of an 8GB SD card broke off inside of my camera. The lock was not damaged and still operational. There were no other damages to the case that I was aware of. Desktops, laptops, other cameras, universal card readers were all useless. I tried EVERYTHING I could think of, but nothing would even recongnize that there indeed was a card inserted into the device. Other SD cards inserted into the devices worked just fine.I initially even downloaded some data recovery programs, but because my SD card couldn't be detected, I couldn't tell the programs what to recover from where. When I realized that there was no hope for me to fix it, I was quite upset. My husband and I had saved up and went on our first vacation abroad together for our 20th anniversary. ALL of my pictures from that time were on this SD card.They weren't 'just pictures' to me. Every site I went on and every person I spoke with basically said the same thing; all was lost and could not be recovered. OR I could try soldering, or buying another SD card to put my chip into...I knew I couldn't realistically be successful at these. Thankfully I wasn't ready to throw out my memories just yet, and I found a company based in Germany called Recoverfab who, based on their website (www.recoverfab.com) sounded like there may be hope for my pics. I emailed them and explained my situation and I was shocked and so happy to receive a reply so quickly! (I had emailed two other companies for information and I didn't even receive a response).Recoverfab already had so much information on their website about the process of recovering and after seeing first-hand how professional they are, I knew I wanted to send my SD card to them. As soon as they received my card, I was notified by email, AND ALSO given a date as to when to expect my card to have been looked at. In my case, it was two days. True to their estimation, I received another email from Recoverfab saying that they had recovered my pictures, and they put them on a secure site for my inspection PRIOR to purchase. I can't describe how happy and relieved I am! Everyone should go to this company when having problems. There IS hope for dire situations with memory storage devices! Don't throw things away that you think are beyond repair until you at least email Recoverfab for their opinion. It's free to ask! Source(s): Recent personal experience. I researched Recoverfab.com and used their services. Would definitely use and recommend this company over and over! What a relief!|
|One of my SD card with 200 holiday snaps went defective. Camera was showing card error. I tried all kinds of software solutions to recover the images, but none were able to read the card. I had given up hope and was ready to throw away the card as I suspected hardware failure. After a bit of googling I came across Recoverfab and decided to send the SD card to Recoverfab and let them have a go at recovering the images. After only a few days I received an email from Recoverfab; they had recovered all of the 200 images. Recoverfab provided an excellent and very professional fast service at a very reasonable price. Communication with Recoverfab was top. Highly recommend it.|
|I had the same problem.. After coming back from vacation I wanted to transfer all my data from the SD card to the computer but when I inserted the card NOTHING happened. I tried inserting the card back to the camera and got and CARD ERROR message. The SD card was DEAD. I tried couple different data recovery programs with no success, I was about to give up when I came across Recoverab.com I contacted Leopold from Recoverfab and told him about my dead SD card problem. He told me that its a common problem and that he can recover the data. I sent the card to Recoverfab and after 3 weeks I got and email saying that they recovered the lost photos along with a preview of them.... If your not able to recover data using recovery software try Recoverfab.com. It worked for me!!!|
|I noticed your posts while searching for a cure to SD card failure. Have just been on vacation in Nicaragua and managed to drown my camera in salt water! Realised my camera dead but hoped to recover photos from SD Card. A friend attempted to recover them using software but only managed to see some corrupted data. In the end i sent the card to an outfit in Germany called Recoverfab. They managed to recover my photos. Not free but it works. Carl M|
|I had a similar issue with a memory card that my wife and I used during our trip to Africa. During one of our safari drives, the card stopped working and was no longer recognized by the camera or computer. As such, there wasn't really any way to use the widely available recover software. Stupidly, we hadn't backed-up our photos from the first three days of our trip so we thought our photos were lost. Luckily, I found a guy in Germany who uses a special technique to recover the files (http://recoverfab.com). You can watch a youtube video on the technique, if interested. I highly recommend the service as it was fast and effective.|
