Press Release: WPPI and DriveSavers Partner to Add Data Recovery Services to Membership Benefits

Recover Critical Digital Images in the Fastest, Most Reliable and Only Certified Secure Facility

NEW YORK CITY, NY (PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo – WPPI Pavilion Booth #N1511) – OCTOBER 26, 2011 – Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) and DriveSavers Data Recovery, the worldwide leader in data recovery services, have formed an exclusive agreement to offer WPPI members discounts and benefits for data recovery services with a “no data, no charge” policy.

“Losing digital images is one of the biggest, yet rarely thought about fears of most professional photographers,” said Arlene Evens, Manager, WPPI Operations. “The thought of losing images from once-in-a-lifetime events, such as a wedding, is heart wrenching. If the unthinkable does happen, DriveSavers can help our members recover digital images and other data from memory cards, hard drives, RAID systems, iPhones, iPads or any storage device.”

Recommended by all storage manufacturers to perform data recovery on their digital media products, DriveSavers has successfully performed digital camera data recovery since the inception of flash-based memory technology. Recently, DriveSavers successfully recovered over 750 images from a digital camera that was submerged in over 60 feet of 46 degree Alaskan waters for 3 days. DriveSavers has successfully completed more recoveries on Flash memory-based devices than any other data recovery company.

DriveSavers has helped photographers with a variety of seemingly impossible problems including the recovery of digital photos from USB drives, hard drives or media cards as well as the recovery of accounting records, client information, calendars and customer mailing lists. DriveSavers has recovered data for film and audio studios, photographers, musicians, game developers, web / graphic designers and other creative professionals. Satisfied customers include companies such as Dreamworks, Lucasfilm, MTV, NBC, Universal Studios, Sony Entertainment and many others.

Through this partnership, WPPI members receive a discount and benefits for DriveSavers data recovery services. If the data is not recoverable, members will not be charged a recovery fee for Standard and Economy Services. (For network and multiple drives, there is a minimum discounted attempt charge.)
