Data recovery from a fire or water damaged computer is often a difficult and time consuming process. Melchiori Technologies has successfully recovered critical data from drives that were warped from intense heat, covered with soot and still damp from firefighters' hoses.
If you ever have the misfortune to seek out data recovery services after a fire Melchiori Technologies will do what it takes to recover as much data off of the damaged hard drive as possible. The fee for data recovery from heavily damaged drives typically runs between $800 - $1500. Full inspection of the drive would enable us to better determine the extent of the damage. After a fire please do not try to operate the drive since running the drive may cause internal components to break down further and may permanently damage what may have been still salvageable. Do not try to remove the drive yourself. Proper grounding of the device is critical to prevent further damage to delicate electronics.
