Data Recovery Services

The Hard Drive Data Recovery service is available for non-RAID HDDs on select products that include: Dell OptiPlex™, Precision™, Latitude™, and Vostro™ computer systems. These services must be purchased separately for each supported product.

Data Recovery Service Includes:

  • Attempt to recover data from failed HDD within the warranty period.

  • Use of class 100 clean room lab, if necessary, to rebuild the drive in order to recover data.

  • Recovered data that is provided to the customer via external USB Memory Stick, USB HDD, or CD. Fulfillment is at the Partner's discretion depending on the quantity of recovered data. The approved media depends on the size of the recovered data and is determined by the Data Recovery Team unless the customer makes a special request. Once the data is recovered, the media remains with the customer at no additional charges.

  • Services for the term of contract as indicated on the invoice.

  • Access to the Dell Data Protection portal, a secure, password-protected online resource that is used to monitor the status of your data recovery.

Keep Your Hard Drive Warranty

Keep Your Hard Drive (KYHD) warranty add-on is available to Dell ProSupport customers at point of sale to retain control over your sensitive data.

You can add this service to your warranty from the services section when configuring your order online.

Key Benefits of KYHD service:

Greater Security – Your sensitive data and hard drive never have to leave your control. Retaining physical possession of a failed hard drive is an effective way to help ensure security of classified, proprietary, or sensitive data.

Complete Control – By keeping failed hard drives in-house, you decide how and when to dispose of your data, on your own terms. Tracking failed hard drives in-transit becomes a nonissue. Covers multiple drives in a system and multiple failures.

Compliance Enablement – Help comply with current data privacy regulations and internal company policies by ensuring sensitive information about your hard drives is not compromised.

Risk Mitigation – Proper control or disposition of sensitive data can mitigate risk of expensive civil liability by helping to prevent potential exposure of confidential customer data or intellectual property.
