Warren quickly diagnosed my problem. Got me a new computer. Set it up and transferred all my documents for a fair price. He even brought my old hard drives back to me. All done within just a couple of days. Highly recommended!!!
Brandon is professional and very thorough. I asked him to do a data recovery job on an external hard drive. He explained to me the inner workings of the drive and the techniques he would use to retrieve the data. Although the data was unable to be retrieved in the end because the drive was too old and corrupted, Brandon went above and beyond, dedicating extra hours to attempting to fix it. I appreciate his work and would recommend him to anyone looking for an IT fix.
My hard drive went kaput last week between backups and so I found myself rather urgently need of data recovery. After doing some internet research, I came across Steve on Thumbtack, who offered to do software based analysis and recovery on the drive for a remarkably reasonable rate. Steve was very helpful the whole time. He was especially accommodating of me and my schedule and took very good care of my hardware; he even have me updates as he worked on it, to keep me in the loop. As it turns out, because the problem with the drive was a hardware malfunction, Steve was unable to retrieve the data, but returned my things at no cost and as a bonus replaced the faulty drive with a working spare, for which I am immensely grateful. He was professional, kind, and cordial during our interaction. I highly recommend him to everyone.
Once we finally communicated for a day and time to meet he was on time and very knowledgeable and finished the work expertly and within his estimatde time that he quoted me. He installed an internal hard drive in my new computer. He even went a little further to make sure everything was working properly on my new computer and showed me how to transfer data from my old computer to my new computer and made a few suggestions on some short cuts in doing it. I would recommend him.
Thought my files were lost on my busted hard drive. Nope not with Mr. Rodriguez. Transferred all files to another hard drive and still was able to fix the old one. You made this customer very HAPPY!!! 1 day wait time. All 5 stars.!!
Huge job- charged to image a hard drive full of data, make Windows XP work on Windows 7 and fixing specialized software. In short - cleaning up Microsoft to create a useful application. On the other hand Microsoft shortcomings and crappy offshore electronics provides a living for this good IT company. they are accountable, communicative dream employees without the entitlement and whining.
Paul swapped out 3 SSD drives for 3 hard drives in 3 laptops. He made my old hard drives externally backup drives I can access via USB plugin for each laptop. Excellent work.
Michael arrived when he stated. He took care of removing the hard drive from my eMac. Michael was very friendly and professional.
Chris came out to the house and got our dead computer up and running. Others told us we needed a new hard drive. I have taken it to the Geeks before who did this and that but after Chris it's working like new. Would use him again (hope I don't have too!)
I brought my hard drive to J-Mac Computer Repairs, to help me recovery data from my hard drive which crashed. He was not only able to recover, but he cloned, installed the drive and was able to install/repair the OS. I had a working computer again ;-) I wouldn't hesitate to use his services again, and his pricing was very fair. Thanks Jimmy

I had a laptop with a failing hard drive which my Windows 7 wouldn't boot anymore but Chris was able to recover my pictures and also reinstall my windows 7 back on my laptop. He was so knowledgeable and well spoken. I told him if have him back to upgrade my laptop to windows 10 soon. He's now my personal tech
Eric helped me back up my computer and save all my files on a flash drive. In addition, he helped me to set up a new flash drive and create a password for my flash drive. In addition, Eric helped me to check my computer hard drive and remove cookies out of it. Moreover, my laptop has a virus program that kept popping up on the screen, and this virus did not let me access any documents on my computer. This virus program wanted me to purchase a program to fix the computer. I contacted Eric to check if he can check the computer and fix it. Sure enough, Eric removed the virus, and helped me to fix the computer without purchasing the antivirus posted on the website. I contacted Eric lately to check on the recommended laptop brand as well as the stores that provide great offers on laptops. Eric provided me with hints and advices to help me select a laptop that matches my needs. I asked Eric if it would be possible to meet him at Starbucks store closer to my house because I do not have a car. Sure enough, he accepted that and he asked me to pick the time that works best for me. Eric never spends more than 30 minutes in fixing any problems I had with my laptop, and he charges a fair price. I was impressed how Eric set a password for my flash drive. This procedure is very helpful to provide protection to my data saved on the flash drive. I was very happy that Eric removed the virus out of my computer, and he fixed it without making any anti-virus program purchases. I met Eric twice, and he always been on time. In fact, he had all of his programs and software ready to be used so that he does not spend long time to fix the computer problem. Eric always contacts me to check on my computer progress and to check if there are any issues going after the computer being fixed At this point, I am very satisfied with all services provided by Eric. I do not have any negative comments about Erics services. I strongly recommend contacting Eric whenever you need help fixing your computer or laptops.
I had an issue where my laptop wouldn't detect the hard drive anymore. The Techies replaced the broken hard drive with a new one with the operating system and other essential softwares to get my system back up and running. I appreciate their excellent service and attention to the customer during the whole process. I recommend them for anyone out there facing computer issues!!
Upgraded OS to Sierra on 2 Macs, replaced hard drive on a third. All working well. Reliable and pleasure to work with.
Ricardo was a good technican. He was able to provide what you asked for. Most importantly on any computer hard drives, Make sure you backup all your files, cause you will loose them. He wanted me to purchased a new internal laptop harddrive, but ended up not using it because he did not have the proper cable to make the transfer. I lost 5 days without using my laptop because Monday was a holiday. He ended up giving me his used internal hard drive replacement. Not sure why? He did indicated he was able to save 90%, but as time went on, then it was 70%, at the end it was 0%. I was semi bummed out cause I had to reinstalled all programs files, but mostly with a new hard drive replacement, it would not reinstalled the program files because it only take one computer to register for that computer. Bottom line, I had to purchased new softwares in order to get back in business. Overall, I ended up buying a new computer and reinstalled all files and new programs so it is register for that computer. All programs files are non transferable. Had I known these issues, I could've save myself alot of headache for not saving my old computer. (It was 7 yrs old computer). Ricardo is honest, accountable and reliable. He will help you if needed. My issues was complicated and our communications was slightly off base. I deducted one star because I cannot return the internal hard drives once its opened and costed me $89.90. Plus my time from leaving work also costed me many down time to reschedule with other clients.. Overall 4 strong stars! !
Great support. He configured my lap top, cleaned up my hard drive and got it running faster. He helped me with software issues too. Fun, friendly and gets what is needed done.
Brian was the tech that came to handle my issues with my laptop. He determined the laptop was fine and working properly. He then did a check and I was advised that my drivers were all installed. He further advised me on cloud storage. I had heard of the cloud,but he gave me information on a service to back up not only my computer, but all my external hard drives as well. He even offered to help me remotely if I have or her issues while out of the USA..the service was great. Thanks Brian
If you have the experience of losing your data and paying a significant sum to have it retrieved, you will have a backup plan in place. I can say in all honesty that the sum took my breath away but when I divided it by 365 and looked at my typical daily spend for coffee and such, it was a deal. I will also share that when I saw the snapshot of my data directories and the files, I was so relieved that the amount became nearly insignificant. My theory is that folks reading this missive will be here because they did not have a backup process in place. All I can say is, don't let it happen twice! Overall, I would recommend Secure Data Recovery Services for anybody who finds themselves in a position to recover data.
Alan has replaced a hard drive and installed new software and hardware, including security software, a wireless printer, and a wi-fi cable modem for me. I have been completely satisfied with his work, and appreciate that he is readily available.
