Andrew did such a wonderful job. He finished everything in a timely manner. He got me back on Windows 7 (I don't like Windows 8), did data recovery, and he fixed my hard drive. He also got my Windows 8 laptop sold for me. He worked very hard to resolve the situation with my hard drive, and I'm very impressed with his work.

Chris came to my rescue the very day I reached out to him to help with data recovery. Chris found my data really quickly and saved the day! Chris stayed several hours after his work day to back up my computer, too. I'm looking forward to having Chris help me with organization and storage of photos and videos.

Joshua came out to check on my faulty Lacie external drive and had it spinning in no time! I was able to back up everything I needed from it. He also found a possible future problem with my Mac desktop's internal drive, so I'll be asking for his help in the very near future.

I would highly recommend Anthony for any computer related issues. As promised, he was able to recover all of my data and get my computer working again. He was very personable, knowledgeable, and right on time. I will definitely call him for any future computer repair needs.

My external hard drive stopped working and all my data would have been lost forever. Rick was able to save almost 100% of the data and at a very reasonable fee. He did not try to sell me additional hardware or services which is greately appreciated. I would definitely recommend his services.

I contacted Southtown Computers to recover data from a bad hard drive. They gave a free quote and a timeframe to complete the work. They even came and picked up my computer and dropped it off. I am extremely happy with the work and the detail they provided. I was so happy that I also had them optomize my wife's laptop for better speed. Highly professional and recomended. I can not say enough about the quality of service.

No games, no gimmicks, straight to the repair. My laptop's hard drive burned out and needed to be replaced. Had a free diagnostic done, got quoted at an excellent price, and had my hard drive upgraded and repaired in two days. Fantastic customer service. Very fair, and extremely friendly. I would recommend this service to everyone.

We were looking for someone who could recommend, install, configure, and transfer all of our data to a new PC. As if that wasn’t a tall enough order, we we’re also moving from Windows XP to Windows 10, so we needed someone with a lot of patience to be able to show my wife and I the differences in how the operating system changed over the years. We told Ken what we were looking for, and he provided us with a refurbished PC that fit our price range. He upgraded the RAM and the also upgraded the PC to Windows 10, and scheduled a time to deliver at our convenience. He transferred all our data, showed us the differences in new version of Windows and explained the ongoing technical support that Dymax offers. We were up and running with the new computer in no time. When my wife had a question a week later, Ken was able to answer it quickly. We are very satisfied with both the hardware itself as well as the service we received and we would highly recommend Dymax to friends and family without hesitation.

After photos were deleted from my phone I consulted several data recovery services, none of whom could work on mobile phones. I consulted Geek Squad at Best Buy and was told it would cost $250 - $700 and could take months. I searched online and found Nerd Rangers who retrieved most of my lost photos within days for a very reasonable price. I communicated with them online and by phone and received prompt, professional response and explanation of their process. I was able to mail my phone to them for service. I highly recommend Nerd Rangers without reservation for their top-rate expertise, timely service and kind responsiveness. I felt they genuinely cared about doing a good job and were very attentive. It was truly a pleasure doing business with them in every way!

I got a partial data recovery done on my external hard drive this month and I was really sceptical at first as I haven't used thumbtack before but I was pleasantly surprised with the service I got from IT. My consultation was quick and clear and I was able to get my data pretty prompt. Ronnie was very professional throughout the whole thing and kept me posted on progress which I liked as sometimes these tech people can go a bit MIA on you while they do the job. I work as a graphic designer and save like 80% of my files on this drive due to lack of space on my Mac, so this was honestly a lifeline for me. Very good service!

Glenview Computer Land is excellent, reliable, quick and affordable service shop. I needed to recover 1 TB of data from a collapsed external hard drive. My data was recovered quickly and for a lot less money than all of other data recovery companies estimated. I especially recommend this shop to my fellow independent filmmakers. If you think you lost your important files on a bad hard drive, do not despair. Stefan is there to help you get it back. I highly recommend this small computer and cell phone repair shop.

My son spilled water all over the Mac laptop that I use for my graphic design business. All of my client files were on the hard drive, and I was so worried that I would never see them again. File Savers was able to recover all of them! Thank you again... you will never know how grateful I am! File Savers literally saved my business!
