Imagine Losing All Your Data — Now Imagine Saving It

  • Seagate Recovery Services In-Lab Recovery

Customers' data is precious

Imagine losing all your data

Your photos, documents, music and movies — your entire digital footprint, gone in an instant.

More than half of all consumers have faced data loss at one time or another. But only 17% of consumers regularly back up their data.

Think it can’t happen to you? Accidents happen. Screens get cracked, files get mistakenly deleted, and viruses can lead to untimely system crashes. These incidents put you at risk of losing priceless data.

If you have a data loss incident, whether at home or at work, you want a result as quickly and easily as possible.

You’ve heard about about Seagate Recovery Services here before, and some of the cool and amazing cases we’ve solved — now check out specifics about the simple and cost-effective ways Seagate can help you with all your data-recovery needs.

Seagate Recovery Services offers 3 ways to get your data back:

Professional in-lab recovery

When your situation is bad and you need to call in the cavalry, you’ll want to turn to our in-lab data recovery services. Seagate brings more than 30 years of storage technology expertise to every recovery case. Our lab technicians work quickly and efficiently to restore your data in as little as 2 business days.

Your part is easy: visit and click Submit a Case. From there you’ll fill out your info and let us know what types of files need to be recovered. We’ll let you know the total cost of your data recovery (and shipping is complimentary — just print a label and send us your device).

Our experts will recover your data in a secure Seagate lab, with status tracking available every step of the way. Once it’s done, we’ll send your data back on an external Seagate drive. And if your data can’t be recovered, there’s no charge.

“We lost our son due to cancer, and all his pictures were on this drive. Losing the drive would have meant that all the memories would have been destroyed as well. You guys never gave up, even after several tries, and did a phenomenal job recovering the data. You have an awesome team there.” — V.J., Allen, Texas

DIY recovery software

Our recovery software is a great option if you prefer a DIY approach. If your hard drive is still accessible, and the damage isn’t too severe, Seagate’s recovery software allows you to restore data on your own, right from home.

You can download the trial version, and follow the guided steps to find out whether or not your data can be recovered — all before you shell out a single penny. If your files can be recovered, just buy the license and run the full program. Once the software has recovered your files, you can easily transfer them to another drive for safekeeping. The license is valid for a year, so you can use it again at no extra cost.

Protect against future failures for just 10 bucks — Seagate Rescue Plan

Why wait for accidents to happen? Instead, take a proactive approach to protecting your data. Save time and money by getting a Seagate Rescue Plan, an affordable and reliable way to safeguard against potential data-loss incidents.

Choose the length of your rescue plan, and for as little as $10, your drive is covered. Whether you drop it, dunk it, or delete it, that’s peace of mind, at a low cost.

If something does happen to your data or device, filing a claim is easy. Just call our rescue Plan service line to open a claim, and we’ll give you a pre-paid shipping label so you can send us your device free of charge. We’ll recover your data in the lab, and send it back to you on a new drive, saving you thousands of dollars on in-lab recovery services.
