In CSI: Miami, the data from a device is acquired in a 10-second scene with their laser-beams, precision robotics and flashing diodes. Moments later, the data is revealed, and on huge screen, decoded and organized with all of the suspect’s deleted pictures and messages in their original quality.
Unfortunately this is not reality. Though, minus the flashing diodes, we are getting there. We make constant advancements in our decoding software, equipment and techniques. However, in many cases, such deep access and recovery of the physical memory data results in a pile of hex data that we have to manually carve through and decode.
For this reason, our typical turnaround is 7-14 days.
If the fate of the western world hangs in the balance and it absolutely positively must be done immediately, a while-you-wait appointment can be arranged.
Our rate to perform chip-off data recovery is $249.
We offer USB flash drives and return shipping for a small fee.
