Kem: Came over the same day I needed help and was able to build the Windows 8 recovery drive I needed for my laptop. While we were unsuccessful in getting into my files that was only because of Bitlocker (always keep your Bitlocker recovery key and keep it separate from your computer and as we found out, if you want your data secure use Bitlocker. It is pretty much impenetrable). Anyhow, Kem was very professional and knowledgeable and I would definitely hire him back if I have anymore problems. It was a pleasure to work with him.

My experience was very positive. Caliph was able to recover the data from my damaged hard drive. He picked up as well as delivered the hard drive from my office, saving me a lot of time. He was able to finish the job in one day. I couldn't be more pleased.

We were searching for a well-reviewed, but less expensive technician to help us retrieve over 10 years of family photos and a consequential music library. And while we initially questioned whether we should've used one of the larger and established businesses, playing the safe bet but paying out the nose, we were very pleased with Mr. Shaw. He was able to retrieve all of the data from our damaged external hard-drive, transferring it to a new external, and completed the work in 2 days. He communicated openly and in detail about the issues he identified and the steps to resolution, and he charged a fair price. Having learned the lesson on the importance of backing up our data I don't expect to be back, but I wouldn't hesitate to contact Mr. Shaw again should the need arise.

I needed to transfer all data to a flash drive an remove all data from the laptop hard drive. Mr. Arrington was the first to respond to my request. He met me at my home within 2 hours. Completed the task within 1:15 minutes. He was professional, excellent technical an product knowledge. He showed genuine concern for my immediate time frame an had taken time to explain in detail what he was doing. An to top it all off his prices were extremely reasonable. I have already scheduled more projects for next week. Kudo's to V-TecPro Stop 8-18-2016

I brought my computer to his shop expecting I needed a new board or a recovery from a failed hard drive. It turned out to be a virus and my computer is back working better then it has for a long time. Very happy with the results and the cost to have my system back home Bill

My laptop hard drive failed, and they were able to recover virtually all of the personal content and organize the files on a new external hard drive. I highly recommend their service.

My external USB hard drive wasn’t recognized by three PCs. Even after I removed the drive from the casing and connected it through ATA cable to my desktop PC, it wasn’t recognized. Paul was able to recover more than 200 GB of data from my drive. I think that it’s all data that I had on this drive.

The bottom line was that they were able to recover my data. My only complaint was that I was led to believe that mine was an easy job that would likely be at the lower end of the cost estimate range. Once they got my damaged hard drive, the estimate turned out to be near the top of the estimate. Not sure whether this is their normal business practice or not.

I can not tell you how happy I am to have called these guys. I lost all my pictures, songs, important school papers, you name it... Apple referred me to a data recovery service that wanted between $1700- $3000 to try and recover my files, and they also charged simply to look at the hard drive, regardless of whether or not they recovered anything! I'm a poor college student and this was out of the question. After doing some research, I called Blueridge Data. They got everything back within 4 days, gave my daily email updates on the status of the recovery, and answered all my questions. No hidden fees, and THEY met ME to pick up the drive. I paid $149 instead of $1700! Amazing and friendly! I highly recommend them!

Had a crashed external hard drive and could not access the majority of my documents. Staples tried to recover the data but was unable to do so in the store, saying that to retrieve the data, it would have to go to the "deep recovery" unit and it would cost $2500! Other companies quoted me prices upwards of $1500. I then contacted Mr. Jonass, who came to my home, arriving even before the scheduled time. He assessed the hard drive to determine the problem, which actually did not require deep recovery. He returned it the next day with all the files intact. His rates were very reasonable and he carefully assessed the problems with the drive. He was very professional, pleasant to work with and explained each step of the process in clear, laymen's terms. It took less time that I anticipated to retrieve the data. I plan to refer anyone asking for a referral for IT support to Mr. Jonass!

My computer was barely alive and I used Thumbtack to find someone that could come to my apartment (b/c my machine is a desktop attached to four monitors and I really didn't want to lug it around NYC). I chose Marc because my Google searches on him revealed what I believed to be a competent, trustworthy person. My choice was good. Great, actually. He showed up exactly on time. He has an easy-going, pleasant manner about him that made me immediately comfortable in his presence. Perhaps most importantly, he is very good at what he does - fixing computers. We had settled on a flat rate beforehand. However, my computer was a likely candidate for a clean sweep and reformatting of the hard drive (basically erasing everything and starting over with a practically new computer). Yet, despite this being the likely outcome, Marc spent 2-3 hours trying to do other workarounds so that he wouldn't have to wipe my machine clean. I found this tactic honest and professional - I wasn't paying the man by the hour, yet he ended up spending five hours at apartment fixing my machine because he wanted to do it the best way possible. In the end, we had to reformat the hard drive (I had already backed up my data on an external hard drive before Marc arrived b/c I anticipated this outcome). And now I can happily say that my computer runs like brand new. Outsourcing this to Marc saved me immense time and untold headaches. I hope my computer is good for another five years. But, if it's not, then I hope Marc is still in the business. Thanks, Marc. Kyle

I was having one of those technology weeks - computer was on the fritz and my external hard drive died. These guys got my computer up and running again and recovered the data on my hard drive – all without me leaving the house. The house call model is great, service was quick and top notch and responsiveness could not have been better. These will be my go-to guys for all computer issues in the future.

Barnabas did an outstanding job recovering our lost family photos and documents that we thought were gone forever. We shopped around and found them to be very reasonably priced. We also like their dilligence and service. They called us three times in one week to keep us up-to-date. We highly recommend them.
