As someone who pays ETS for online storage I HIGHLY recommend it. The backups have saved us a number of times and ETS staff have responded to any issues at all times of the day.

Subject: Re: failed hard drive -- data recovery?
Please post the quote in $$ for the recovery if you go that route. I see a lot of researchers using external media and I’d love to tell this story – among others – to get them to use network storage.

This is a grad student. I'm surprised he doesn't back up his data to
our disk space, he said it was only around 150 GB.
He would need to map any space onto his PC (I think Windows something)
using smb. Do you supply 150 GB?
I'll have a conversation with his faculty advisor in any case.

You can ship the drive to them and they generally do a free appraisal on the likelihood of success and will quote you the cost to proceed with recovery, which you can agree to and pay or say "no thanks" and they'll ship the drive back to you as-is. I've had 2 or 3 interactions with them over the past decade, and they've always been courteous, honest and professional. Be prepared for the possibility of a hefty fee though. Price varies depending on quantity of data, type of data, amount of damage to disk, file system of disk, size of disk, encryption, etc.
