Kroll Ontrack offers new service to address surge
in digital photograph recovery needs

Minneapolis - March 25, 2008 - Kroll Ontrack®, a leading provider of data recovery and legal technologies products and services, today announced the addition of a new photo recovery service to its Ontrack® Data Recovery suite of services to better serve individuals and their growing photo recovery needs. This offering directly addresses a recent surge in individual recovery requests paired with research that revealed digital photos are second only to Microsoft® Office files as the most requested files for recovery.

Specifically, Kroll Ontrack’s photo recovery service includes:

  • A $495 flat-rate
  • Recovery of photo files on a single media or computer hard drive
  • Free inbound packaging and shipping via participating The UPS Store® and Mail Boxes Etc.® locations
  • Recovered photos provided on DVD media at no charge and mailed to the individual  

Today, there are many types of digital storage media available, ranging from tiny memory cards that come bundled with cameras to high-capacity microdrives. Regardless of the format, it is a known fact that people are trusting their pictures to a different media than traditional film - and with that new media, comes new problems. Instead of overexposure or a damaged roll of film, individuals have to deal with corrupted files and media damage.

“According to Photo Marketing Association International (PMAI), 122 million digital cameras will be sold in 2008, and over half of all U.S. households will own a digital camera. Because digital media can suffer from damage or corruption like computers, losing precious, irreplaceable photos is a very plausible experience for families,” said Todd Johnson, vice president of operations for Kroll Ontrack. “Fortunately, recovery is often feasible and Kroll Ontrack has both the expertise and experience to help.”
