I'm currently working on a tool which is supposed to carve fragmented files, like, extracting fragmented JPEGs from a volume without referring to any kind of filesystem metadata. However, the process is very computationally expensive, and any practical speeds require pretty high-end hardware. If I ever was to sell the resulting tool, which would you prefer, - a standalone software with some ungodly hardware requirements, or a website where you can upload your disk image and get the recovered files back after a while, for a reasonable per-GB price?

Likely option A. Customers are overly paranoid about data security.

First option too.
Not easy to upload the entire image of a HDD.
