NOTE : Protect your support. If it's a hard drive, put it, if it's possible, in an antistatic envelope, and then
wrap it in a box or several padded envelopes reinforced by example. If it's a server or RAID system, the ideal is to send it in its original packaging. The RAID system must be sent with his controller card,
drivers and configuration (the number and size of blocks,
the order of hard drives).

It usually takes between 1 and 3 days to obtain the result (temporary or definitive) of the diagnosis. The deadline for data recovery varies between 1 week and 1 day as the case. See also section
