    I picked Shaw Computer Service because he had an honest response and I felt my job would be in good hands. I was correct and would recommend this company to all of my friends, family and professionals requiring data retrieval.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My prices start at $375 for hard drives and $150 for thumb drives. I have been giving a discount to Thumbtack customers, though. With hard drives the prices can go higher if parts are needed or if a lot of work is required. I always discuss the price with my customers before starting work on a drive.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have been in the IT business for thirty-two years mostly working on disk array systems. When I decided to start my own data recovery company six years ago I did some intensive training with Scott Moulton and earned my CDRE (Certified Data Recovery Expert) degree. I have since done over 800 recoveries and the best thing is I love doing it.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I had been in the IT field for a long time and I was making a clone of my work hard drive when it froze up. I ended up turning the computer off and when I turned it back on nothing happened. I was able to get the data back by hooking the drive to a computer with a different operating system. It was thrilling and I realized that I wanted to start my own data recovery company.
