Registering for our Data Recovery Service means a safe feeling for you. For a period of 3 years, you have the right to one data recovery of your hard drive in case it has crashed.

Why not just take copies ? far cheaper than this

or use a free program, like PC Tool's excellent one they do.

This is effectively insurance.
It would cost more than £25 to get a 2nd HDD to protect yourself, and you DO have to keep backing up to avoid the problems.
Personally I wouldnt bother as I would rather just back up things I cant risk losing.
That said, this is probably a good deal for a family who have a few laptops etc kicking around as there is an increased risk of 1 going wrong, coupled with the extra hassle of backing up numerous systems.

Are we not talking about a HDD failure instead of you accidentally deleting something?

If your only drive fails you could be into 100's of pounds to get the data back a £25 insurance policy to get you out of the brown sticky stuff. People using single drive nas devices with odd partitions like the buffalo linkstations would struggle to recover using so called free appliactions that do not deliver the goods when you have lost your family photos etc

I just paid $129 for software from a Seagate affiliated company to recover info from a seagate 1.5 triple interface freeagent drive for Mac because it refused to mount or be recognised after 1 year. It is a design fault in the machine and having to pay to recover data from a faulty drive really *?!%ed me off. All the drive manufacturers should provide free recovery software but none do. Personally I think it's morally reprehensible but then that's not good business.
The alternative was to go through their suggested data retrieval company who quoted £600-£900 or go through a third party data retrieval certified specialist who could provide a T1 letter. The cheapest option was this software. You have to use one of their options otherwise your drive's warranty is nullified and you lose your right to a replacement drive. When they take your drive you lose the info on it.
As it stands the corrupted information was the drive software it comes with which reduces the capacity down to 1.4TB. All mine was fine. So I had to pay for their incompetence.
So sure I can now get a replacement (probably refurbished) drive and I will have to get a large enough capacity drive to act as a back up - now I have the seagate recovery software it makes sense for me to get another of their drives. I hadn't backed all the information up as I'd recently gone through a cpu change and my smaller drives all had more recent info on them. So I got caught on the hop.
It really annoys me that I'm even considering another of their drives since by all rights I should never buy another Seagate product again.
This guarantee might be worthwhile to some and I wouldn't dismiss it since it's a lot cheaper than the alternatives but be warned it probably invalidates your drives warranty.

Dropbox free account is 2GB (may have been 3GB in the past?).

2gb online is no way enough. I need around 20gb given a 12 meg pixel photo is 2.5 meg each and I have loads + my HD video. With virgin throttling my uploads it would take some time to put the up there in the first place.

Would be better paying google for storage

20 GB ($5.00 USD per year)
80 GB ($20.00 USD per year)

microsoft give a free 20GB storage.

there is a deal about it but it never got far.

I think it's called SkyDrive (google it) - 25GB

Why this is cold is beyond me!! People insure houses, posessions and cars why not your data.

£25 or a £900 bill to recover the files you forgot to backup.

YOU ARE BONKERS for voting cold !!
#14
People insure cars and buildings generally because it's a legal requirement, not because they have an urgent need to throw money at a scheme where you're effectively paying for "peace of mind".

p.s. SkyDrive has a max file size limit of 50MB which will do for pictures & music but maybe not for all files.

yeah but surely you would have photos backed up multiple times already externally and not rely on some third party company mayeb trying to restore it :-D

I use about 4GB of my dropbox free storage safe in the knowledge that all my day to day important stuff gets backed up online immediately it is updated / deleted / created.

csimon... As I said previously, it is not feasible to put a 2nd HDD in a a laptop, let alone if you have a few of them for kids etc.
I can see when this is useful.
Personally, I would not want to send all my personal data straight to a 3rd party as companies have been known to lose things.
That said, as you say, this company is not guaranteeing any recovery at all, so it may be a waste of time. I cant see them trying extra hard to recover anything in exchange for £25.

It is worth noting that this deal is Freecom (who make HDD's). It therefore would not surprise me if this deal actually has T&C which says that it is only for new Freecom HDD's..

good point for laptops but I would expect you have to pay for a new drive else how would you get your data back? :w00t:

"When the recovery process is completed, we will send you a list with the information we have recovered."

its a bit like generating future hard drive sales in the event they can recover your data and getting paid £25 regardless
#19
Not worth much unless you intend playing football with your computer.

Can it get your your data back when someone steals your laptop or desktop?

You are better off backing up the data, either online or via an external drive.
I use software called Casper [Not Free] , to back up my laptop harddrive, if the original drive fails or the laptop walks off, then I have an exact copy of the drive that can be installed in the same laptop model and I am back where I was a couple of days ago.
No installing programs etc just plug and play.

I have used it many time to copy a laptop hard drive to a bigger drive and just swap the drives out no installing programs etc.

Ah but would it surprise you to learn that it applies to [COLOR="Red"]"any hard drive or hard drive equipped device"[/COLOR] ?

Sometimes people can be TOO cynical.

For three years insurance, I reckon that its not a bad deal.
Anyone had any other quotes for such insurance?

It DOES include insured transport - not sure what value they might put on your data though.

Important to understand that its £25 per drive, for three years cover.

I saw it on Amazon, and considered posting it here.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Freecom-34946-Data-Recovery-Service/dp/B003BPY5WA/

So, an interesting proposition - but not a unique deal from Play.
Voted hot because it doesn't deserve to be voted down.

There are millions of software programs available for data retrieval, but if you need a physical recovery specialist, I suggest you try Fields Data Recovery. You will have a guaranteed good result and quick service.

My IT friend recommended Fields Data Recovery for my HDD.He has used them before and when they gave me a good price quote I used them. They were good and quick.
