NOVATO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--DriveSavers, the worldwide leader in data recovery, eDiscovery and digital forensics, today announced it will provide free data recovery services to North and South Carolina residents who have lost critical data as a result of Hurricane Florence and resulting floods. The company is donating time, resources and years of expertise to provide up to $1,000,000 worth of data recoveries from water-damaged hard drives. Eligible devices include external hard drives, desktop computers and laptops.

“DriveSavers is known worldwide for recovering data from severely traumatized devices including those that have been dropped, burnt, crushed, and submerged in water,” said Scott Moyer, president of DriveSavers. “We offer our expertise to those who’ve lost irreplaceable data like photos and videos of loved ones, business files and financial records.”

The free recovery service is available now for victims of Hurricane Florence and resulting floods. Because exposure to water and air cause corrosion on circuitry, customers must contact DriveSavers and ship devices no later than October 31, 2018. Limited to one device per business or household. Customers needing additional recoveries, and those with multi-drive devices such as RAID, NAS and SAN devices, are eligible for a 50% discount off regular service fees.
