If a mobile device containing sensitive information is discovered in a trash can, that user can lose all of their data. The finder can report the discovery to the local police if they believe the device is linked to a crime or contains sensitive data. If the phone falls into the wrong hands, the person who finds it could access the sensitive information stored on the device. This can include personal data, contacts, messages, photos, documents, and more. To minimize the risk of data loss, it is crucial for individuals to take proactive measures to secure their mobile devices. This includes setting up strong passwords or biometric authentication, enabling remote tracking and wiping features, regularly backing up data to a secure location, and encrypting sensitive files if supported by the device.

We are always ready to find the best price for you and to beat any data recovery competitor quote by 10%.

Our Class 100 Clean Room and Why it's Crucial

Wildfire Data Recovery proudly operates a Class 100 Clean Room, an impeccably sterile laboratory where air particles are meticulously monitored. Every mechanical hard drive is susceptible to air particles, such as dust, that can settle onto the platter surface. Businesses equipped with a class 100 cleanroom, like professional data recovery service providers such as Wildfire Data Recovery, can offer numerous benefits for complex hard drive failures that others cannot match.


A class 100 cleanroom is a meticulously controlled environment designed to minimize the presence of dust and other impurities in the air, which is vital for hard drives requiring cover removal to access the platters. Our Class 100 Clean Room ensures a secure environment for dismantling mechanical storage devices.

Our Wildfire Data Recovery experts, clad in protective gear, skillfully remove the hard drive's casing. This critical moment requires precise tools and unwavering focus. The platters, illuminated by cleanroom lights, safeguard your digital data. They are incredibly delicate and must be handled with extreme care to prevent damage.

Once the platters are exposed, our specialists utilize top-of-the-line equipment such as ACE Lab to embark on a relentless data recovery journey. They expertly coax the bytes and bits from their hiding spots on the platters, piecing together the puzzle of lost memories and critical information, leaving no room for compromise. The recovered data undergoes a rigorous transformation and verification process to ensure its integrity, guaranteeing that no aspect of your digital life is left behind or altered.

  • What is data recovery and how much does it cost?
    Data recovery is a complex and at times, very time consuming process. It is a combination of many fields from computer science and engineering, IT to electronics, to software engineering, coding, electrical engineering and much much more. Due to this extremely specialized and difficult process, a data recovery engineer is a self taught professional that has a passion for all of the aforementioned fields and it is this passion that leads to their ability to sometimes do what is considered "impossible". Furthermore, the software, hardware and the many tools that go into data recovery are extremely specialized and very costly. Every electronic device and digital storage media contains information, and that information can be made inaccessible due to mechanical or logical failure. The process of accessing, retrieving and restoring that inaccessible data is called data recovery. The data recovery process varies based on the type of media. If the failure is logical (deletion, operating system failure, etc) then specialized software is used to recover the data. If a mechanical failure occurs such as physical damage, water or fire damage, recovery requires a professional staff and certified Cleanroom facilities.
  • How long does it take to get my data back?
    Unfortunately there is no easy answer here. Most of the recoveries we perform are completed within 48 hours. However, sometimes jobs can last 2-4 weeks (especially with servers and large RAID combinations). Your engineer will inform you thoroughly of your wait time.
  • What data recovery packages do you offer?
    Our data recovery plans start from Level 1 (Basic Software Recovery) to Level 5 (Complex Malware, Ransomware, Hardware plus other damage). Complexity dictates which category (or level) your device will be placed in and the final cost that you will incur based on the successful return of your lost data. Different devices also incur different costs. For example, a RAID system (which can contain anywhere from 2-30 hard drives or more) will have a higher data recovery success fee then an individual hard drive at the same complexity level. Our basic data recovery packages are: 1. LEVEL 1 – SIMPLE LOGICAL DATA RECOVERY SERVICES: $299+GST. This level includes all devices with basic logical issues such as deleted data, formatting, accidental deletion due to human error, operating system malfunctions (this includes software glitches or bad updates that affect the function of your operating system), virus and malware issues, file system errors, overwriting of data plus much more. 2. LEVEL 2 – COMPLEX LOGICAL DATA RECOVERY SERVICES: $520+GST. The complexity of data loss can increase based on various factors that go beyond simple logical data loss scenarios. Some of the factors that can contribute to increased complexity in data loss situations include RAID configurations (data loss can become more complex due to the interdependence of multiple drives and potential issues with RAID controllers), file system damage, disk or hardware issues from logical problems (damages sectors, corrupted data which prevents the drive from being read), encrypted data, legal or compliance implications (in certain cases, data loss may involve legal or compliance issues, adding complexity to the recovery process).
  • How does the data recovery process work?
    Wildfire Data Recovery begins each case with a risk-free media evaluation. Our certified and trained Engineers test to see if your device has recoverable data, after which we provide a price quote and estimated turnaround time for the recovery. Based on how complex this recovery is and the level of damage, the time can range from a few days to several weeks. The evaluation we provide here at WDR is no-obligation and we will return your media to you if you decide not to use our services, FREE of charge. We provide free diagnostics with our standard service and stand by our “No data, No recovery fee” guarantee. If you accept the quote, we treat physical media issues with tested and safe technology and utilize a Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom. Engineers will make a copy of your drive and treat logical issues to restore files to a working condition. After the recovery is complete, we will send a list of recovered files and will send your data back on FIPS validated portable storage or on transfer media you provide.
  • When can data recovery be performed and what are some examples of the different forms of data recovery?
    Data recovery is possible on almost any device that can hold data. Data recovery is even possible on cloud based operating systems, servers, locked-out iPhones, and Samsung mobile phones plus much more. All data recovery problems can be placed into one of three categories, logical damage, physical damage, or a combination of the two. Devices with logical problems can be restored using software only or logical solutions. Recovery is also possible for a device that has sustained physical damage (such as dropping a mechanical hard drive from a height). In this case, engineers would use our class 10 ISO 4 clean room to replace the faulty parts and recover your data. Wildfire Data Recovery has successfully recovered data from media that has been burned, submerged in water, and physically damaged. Our forensic toolkit and expertise gives us the edge over other data recovery companies and we can perform data rescues determined to be impossible by others.
