To summarize, while selecting a data recovery service provider, simply have the following in mind:
- Do your own research and have some basic ideas of data recovery, the vendors etc.
- Do not be too taken in by sweet numbers and nice write up on the web sites. Nothing can beat visiting the vendors' office to get a good feel.
- Consider the price, time and any other hidden or fixed cost.
- Consider carefully the capability of vendor, the service credential and data confidentiality
- In case of doubt, ask around
