Well, 2 things on this:
When a hard drive fails, they attempt to "decode" the information from the drive. They could take everything off, but they just want to put the least amount cause each has to be "decoded" seperately.
Depending on how Tekserve is about their business, they could rummage through your files and say they didn't. They could also charge the $800 and not get it done at all, considering the fact that hard drive recovery is somewhat risky.
And a question to you-- is the information on your hard drive worth $800? A hard drive nowadays is under 100 dollars (500 GB- 1TB), and the external hard drive they place the data on is worth 100 dollars. So all together, the items you will need is going to cost $200. So really, is your information worth 600-700 dollars? Is it a lot of music, business files, photos, memories, etc, or is it just files you already have but some that you have deleted off their primary source?
Who said I couldn't have everything?
