Can I send a drive for the recovered data, instead of purchasing one from you?

Yes, provided the drive that you send us is  a new (boxed) USB 3.0 external hard drive with sufficient capacity for all your data. We regret that we cannot accept slower (USB 2.0 or lower) or used drives, or any media with data already written to it. Please note that we do not encrypt (password-protect) customer-supplied drives.
