About Us

Brian Cometa is the owner and lead technician at $300 Data Recovery. He started his career in Mac Repair, providing affordable drop-off and on-site Mac Repair services in Los Angeles. But, when his customers had damaged hard drives, the only option was to refer them to extremely expensive data recovery companies. Back in 2007, there were no data recovery companies charging fees that his customers could afford. So, he set out to learn and demystify "data recovery" and provide an affordable alternative to the unjustified prices other companies charge.


15 years and 4500+ customer reviews later, Brian has mastered the art of affordable data recovery! He's recovered more than 26,000 failed devices while staying true to his primary goal of offering affordable data recovery services, charging his customers a fair flat fee of $300, $400, or $500 per device (not including donor parts, shipping, tax, or a Transfer Drive, if necessary).


Use $300 Data Recovery's Instant Rate Calculator ( to find out the total charge for your recovery in about a minute (no contact info required). Or, submit a Chances Form (, and Brian will personally respond with an estimate of your "chances" for a successful recovery, along with a firm price quote.
