NewEgg Launches Data Recovery Plans
Newegg.com, the online retailer of electronics and computer products, has expanding its services into data recovery services plans, the company said Tuesday.
NewEgg has partnered with DriveSavers which will provide data recovery services to customers whose storage devices fail. The service–which works beyond backup and recovery to recover critical data from a failed or corrupted storage device–will cost $29.95 for one year of service for a hard drive and $49.95 per year for laptops.
Newegg said it will offer the plans with the purchase of hard drives and notebooks. The plans essentially act as insurance policy against a hard drive failure; data recovery efforts typically cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars, if obtained after a failure.
