Shipping your media for data recovery or digital forensic services

Shipping your media correctly is a critical part of ensuring that your data remains recoverable.

Below are a number of important tips you should follow when packaging your media for shipment:

1. SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT

Shipping your media

Fill out the online data recovery form, sign it, and include it along with your package when shipping your media to Capital Data Recovery Inc.

Please, sign it, and include the form with your package when shipping your media to us.

2. PREPARE THE MEDIA FOR SHIPPING
Package your media in ESD, or anti-static bags, or a zip-lock bag. Avoid touching the circuit board or electrical connectors when handling the hard drive.

Use a foam or a double layer of bubble wrap around the hard drive or a solid drive. Pack hard drive in a suitable shipping carton with a minimum of 2 inches packing material between the drive and carton.

We don’t suggest using the shipping “peanuts” as the drive might become loose while transportation and get damaged.

3. SHIP YOUR MEDIA TO OUR DATA RECOVERY LAB

Capital Data Recovery Inc.
1827 Woodward Drive, Unit 306
Ottawa ON K2C 0P9
Canada

If possible, use a shipping service with tracking capabilities. For faster service, use an overnight or 2nd day service.

4. CONTACT US
Contact us once the drive is shipped and let us know the tracking number (if applicable).

Once your media is received and evaluated, you will be contacted by phone or email.

    Hello, I made a very large mistake. I formatted an external hard drive that had 8 years of memories on it. Capital Data Recovery was able to save my files for me. Time frame from drop off to pickup was … More very good.
    Professional treatment from beginning to end. They also provided great suggestions for my future projects.
    I definitely know where to take my equipment if I need this work performed again.
    Thank you so much for the quality work and friendly communications.

    GREAT service. Levon was super kind, patient and informative every step of the way. My HD failed just before Christmas and he made sure to let me know the status of my recovery so I could relax over the … More holidays. Very fast and comprehensive service. I had 250GB of data on the drive and they were able to recover basically everything (bar 5 random photos).

    G'evening,
    After years of capturing those special moments and most importantly the first 7 years of my children life, to important documents I lost everything. I made the mistake of not backing up
    … More all pictures & documents. My hard drive crashed and I was devastated.
    A good friend of mine recommended me contacting Levon at Capital Data Recovery Inc. From the very beginning of communication with Levon he was responsive, professional, friendly, understanding and provided great customer service. He was successful in recovering ALL that was on my hard drive in a timely manner.
    I would most definitely without hesitation or doubt recommend everyone to contact Capital Data Recovery Inc and ask for Levon, you will not be disappointed.
    For a less than ideal, emotional situation Levon was able to turn it all around for me. I am forever grateful for his hard work and dedication in retrieving my data, he did an amazing job! I think from my tears of joy he understands what he did for me and how thankful I am and forever will be.
    Thank you so much for the amazing experience, help & service you provided, I couldn't have asked for better.
