Do I need data recovery?

A small number of example questions that I received over the last two weeks or so are written below. In all cases these hard drives and phones would benefit from a data recovery service.

I have a 2TB Seagate Barracuda SATA HD that powers up and is visible in Windows and can sometimes copy data very very slowly and then dissappears from Windows Explorer with an IO error. It contains mainly pictures/videos/films and ISOs. Can you provide an estimate as to the cost of recovering this HD. Thanks

unresponsive iphoneSeagate 500gb hard drive can not be found on windows computer. Tried on an other computer still can’t be found. There are no clicking sounds. I think the drive spins up but I can’t remember.
Please can you provide me with a realistic quote for date recovery.

Disk Utility is recognising the name of my drive, which suggests that it is not a mechanical error and more a reading error. The disk wont mount to the computer. I need a quote on work where you can order the “table” correctly for my drive to be read and so I can recover the data please.

iPhone is unresponive, screen has come off and it’s all smashed etc. Doesn’t seem to take power. Was intrested in getting a quote in getting a copy of my photos that are saved on my phone/ how your pricing system works.

I have been cycling with my External HD and may have given it a knock. It’s a “WD My passport for Mac” and it no longer works. Symptoms are similar to that you describe for hard drives that have been dropped.

I have two tapes generated a long time ago on IBM mid range systems that I would to copy to DVD if possible. One is a DC6150 150Mb and the other is a 3490E 1100 ft tape. The data is likely to be program sources and compiled objects. Please can you advise the cost of doing these conversions.
