We have earned our reputation as the most advanced and progressive data recovery and digital forensics company in the industry. Our staff has extensive experience developing unique technology with major drive manufacturers to give you the most accurate results possible. At DriveSavers, “We can save it!” is not only our slogan, it’s our solemn pledge. And our track record proves it.

1. Call for a Free Estimate

Call our data recovery advisors at +1.800.440.1904 seven days a week for a free estimate on any device that has experienced data loss. You will receive an estimate with a unique job number.

2. Ship Your Device

Ship your device to DriveSavers Data Recovery. Upon setting up your job on the first call, we will email you a prepaid overnight shipping label for sending your device to our Certified ISO 5 Cleanroom.

3. Free Evaluation

All devices received will undergo a free evaluation from our data recovery engineering team. This is done to determine the severity of the failure and complexity of the work involved to recover the data. A data recovery advisor will call you after the evaluation is complete with a firm, all-inclusive quote in writing that will never exceed the initial estimate you received when you first called in. If at this point you decide you don’t want to proceed, there is absolutely no charge.

4. Data Recovery

After you give the okay on proceeding with the data recovery, our data recovery engineers will perform the data recovery. In the highly unlikely event that your data is unrecoverable, we send the device back and you owe us nothing for the attempted data recovery.

5. You Receive Your Data

We ship your recovered data back to you on a new device. Every device that DriveSavers performs data recovery on falls under our no data, no charge policy.

In the News

DriveSavers Data Recovery

Stories of our miraculous data recoveries have been featured by major media outlets such as CNN, CBS, The Discovery Channel and print publications such as The San Francisco Chronicle, Wired, Time, PCWorld, PCMag, and many others.


Authorized by Manufacturers

Our close and long-term relationships with leading hard drive manufacturers help us keep pace with changing data storage technology and offer the best data recovery results in the industry. Our proprietary software and hardware is so advanced, we consistently rescue data other data recovery providers simply abandon.

All leading manufacturers authorize DriveSavers to open sealed drive mechanisms without voiding the original warranty. Our data recovery allows you to receive an in-warranty drive replacement from the manufacturer.

All Operating Systems | All Storage Media

DriveSavers works closely with all storage device vendors and leading computer makers to help guarantee your original equipment’s warranty is never compromised.

Hard Drive Data Recovery

If you own a desktop PC or a laptop, Mac or Windows, or any kind of computer, then you have a hard drive! Hard Disk Drives (HDD) and Solid State drives (SSD) store all your important information, files, photos, video (assuming adherence to copyright laws), etc. Unfortunately, they can be susceptible to data loss due to hardware failures, physical damage, and malware. Not to worry – We can save it!

RAID Data Recovery

RAID technology is omnipresent among enterprise-level storage devices and many high-capacity consumer storage devices. It utilizes multiple hard disks to help protect data in the event of a failure. However, not all RAID levels provide redundancy and are vulnerable to data loss. Mission critical? Unit down? We can do that! Recovering data from RAID storage devices is among our specialties.

Hard drive recovery begins upon receipt of drive – 365 days a year, including nights, weekends, & holidays.

iPhone Data Recovery

If you dropped your new iPhone 11 in the pool or your data has been deleted from your iPhone, then Apple’s built-in encryption could prevent a successful data recovery from being possible. But not here at DriveSavers. We pioneered the first data recovery from an iPhone after it was introduced to the market. Your iPhone data isn’t lost – we can help!

Mac Data Recovery

If you’ve lost Mac data, we have you covered! Our technical systems and proprietary software can effectively restore deleted files and regain complete access to your lost data. Our process is 100% safe and our relationship with AppleCare and Apple Service Providers means there is no risk to your warranty when using our data recovery service. Check out our recovery options for apple products.

SSD Data Recovery

A solid-state drive (SSD) is a term referring to a storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies rather than physical spinning disks & movable read-write heads used by conventional hard drives to store data. SSDs are typically more resistant to physical shock & external threats, but they are still vulnerable to data loss as other storage devices.
