Chris did an outstanding job recovering data from a broken damaged hard drive. He was able to recover 8 years of precious photos and videos that I was afraid were lost forever. He was professional, punctual, and friendly. His prices were reasonable and he seemed genuinely happy to be able to provide this service. Highly recommended!
My hard drive crashed suddenly, but Philip was able to recover all of my files, and for a very reasonable price at that. He was extremely professional from the start, communicated with me throughout the data recovery process, and even offered recommendations for data backup in the future when I went to retrieve my recovered files from him. I have never experienced such great service in any field. Philip is the go-to guy for data recovery problems. 10/10 would recommend!!
I live in Singapore. My Dell HD had crashed and I was advised by data recovery expert that drive heads were beyond repair and drive had to be sent to a clean room to access data from the drive platters in the US. I was visiting Columbia, MD and through internet search located Shaw Computer Services in Ellicott City, MD and sent service request on Thumbtack. Shortly after entering my request, Phil contacted me and accommodated to see my hard drive the same day. He had an assessment within few hours and was well on way to recover my data. I had over 99% of my data recovered with only few files that were affected due to platters being scratched. During the entire process, Phil kept me updated on the process and the status of my data recovery. I would endorse Shaw Services and would not hesitate to use their services in future. Thank your Phil.
I am a thumbtack pro so I know how important it is to make sure that the people you are looking to hire have the proper information. Especially with computers, no 2 are the same. I was out of town, and hadn't touched my computer in 2 weeks, came back, the computer indicated I needed to have an update, and when I hit update, everything went wrong. The desktop computer basically wouldn't turn the operating system on. Its only 1 year old. I tried everything I new, including trying to restore it to a point before the problem existed. I made a determination that I needed someone who had far more experience. This happened on a Friday night. I put it out on thumbtack got 2 responses in minutes and I decided on Tony. He did a great job ! He came out on a Saturday morning , he tried a couple of things, then had to open up the desktop and find the data, which he did and then transfer it to a separate drive. He then had to do a total reinstall of Windows. All in all he was there about 6 hours and most important, honored what he quoted me. No one knew the job would take this long. Please note Tony is as good as the information you give him. I had all my passwords for Office 365, QuickBooks and even a government certificate IDEN. So in summary, Tony is a pro's pro, very patient a true professional. My business quickbooks is intact, as well as office 365, Mozy for backing up to the cloud. Look no further, hire Tony
Caliph did an excellent job! Requested him to transfer extensive complicated data to a flash drive which he did masterfully. Also did troubleshooting on another computer which took considerable time which uncovered the problem. All of this was done for his one hour charge. He was extremely professional with both excellent technical and people skills. We will use DYNAMIC for any and all computer issues in the future and recommend him to anyone requiring computer service.
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.
Not so long ago something went wrong inside of my external hard drive and I almost lost all my files. Following my friends' advice, I contacted ACE Data Recovery. They were able to fix the issue and extract all my data from the dead drive! Frankly, I could hardly believe it was possible, but ACE engineers did their best and deserved my appreciation. I got 100% of my data back!
Craig diagnosed my MacBook Air free of charge and once the issues had been explained to me, he then let me know all of my options for repair. Because my computer was already several years old, I had some questions about repairing it versus replacing it with a new one. Craig helped me weigh my options, and ultimately we decided to switch my hard drive into a used MacBook Air of the same year that he had in the shop. At no point during this process did I feel as though his primary interest was to get money out of me. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a computer repair!
Excellent service from knowledgable engineers and technicians. They maintained dialogue throughout the recovery process and thoroughly explained the process along with the details of the recovery
I've known Paul Lozovsky for 20 years...he is the owner of Ace Computer. He taught me everything i know about desktop computers. But due to my failing health, and poor eyesight, I farm out a lot of work to him. Two weeks ago, I dropped my laptop because my hands were sweaty. Dropping the unit caused the hard drive to fail. I gave Paul a call and he said to bring it to his shop. He ordered a new, very good hard drive, which he got at a good discount. He knows I live on a fixed income, now that I am retired. He not only put the new hard drive in, but he did a clean install of my operating system, recovered my data (which I really needed, and reinstalled my basic programs and utilities. The laptop works better than itdid when I bought it. Paul's prices are very reasonable and his turn around time is fast. He will do the work on site, if possible or bring your broken unit to his shop and return it when finished. Paul is fully certified in every computer and networking service. I recommend him highly!
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!
Express Computers performed the scheduled work in a professional and timely manner. Following their bid, they were out on the next day to assess the situation and the scope of work. I would recommend them for any of your computer / networking needs.
Martins went above and beyond in helping me recover data from a ca. 1994 Toshiba laptop (!) and in wiping two laptop hard drives. He's is professional, knowledgeable, and delivers on what he promises. I would recommend him without reservations!
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.

My computer desktop needed a hard drive "recovery". My husband's AUTOCAD program needed to be recovered asap. I spoke with other techs and Chris was the most knowledgable. Chris came to our house on a Monday and came back on Wednesday with our computer fully functional. We highly recommend Chris, he is very professional. His prices are reasonable. He is is a very kind and honest person.
