ESS launches iRetrieval

ESS Data Recovery has announced its new data recovery service for iPods. Billed as the first service data recovery solution for the iPod, customers can send their iPods to one of ESS Data Recovery's locations where the drive's information is recovered and returned; ESS says it will repair/replace the iPod's hard drive and other parts, if necessary, bringing the unit to a completely usable condition. ESS says it has developed special methods for recovering data from iPods using the company's patent pending Mediasafe technology and claims an "exceptionally high" success rate. Pricing starts at $290 for 10GB-40GB iPods models.

"The way iPod drives are built, there's not much of a chance that the data on the drives could be physically destroyed," said ESS Data Recovery engineer Nathan Wright. "Even in cases where an iPod's been dropped several stories or thrown, we've been seeing completely successful recoveries nearly every time."

ESS has been in the data recovery field since 1997, and is considered one of the leaders in the industry. Their past clients include Sprint, Sony Ericcson and NASA.

"The iPod is quickly becoming the most important music device for the new millennium," said ESS CEO Ben Carmitchel. "We're hoping that this service is viewed as an alternative to painful data loss."
