Mike is absolutely unbelievable. I have known and worked with many experts in this field, and nobody even comes close to Mike. His ability to troubleshoot an issue, coupled with his demeanor, make him an A++ resource. He took a problem which was very complicated (essentially a failed hard drive) and was able to install a new drive and fix the issue with no difficulty. His communication the entire time was excellent. I was very nervous about recovering the data from this drive, and Mike made everything easy. His prices were incredibly reasonable as well. I would recommend Mike unequivocally to anyone experiencing a hard to solve technology issue.

Mike was extremely easy to work with. He was able to recover photos from a corrupt SD card. We highly recommend him.

Just image that someone convinces you to go for a hike by yourself on a mountain and the weather changes and you don’t have the right clothing, shoes, food or shelter. That is the problem that I found myself in emotionally when I lost many years of photos and videos when I tried to eliminate a tremendous number of duplicates that were produced by the update of iPhoto to Photo which created many unnecessary duplicates. A well-meaning friend suggested that I use an app that removes duplicate files i.e. photos etc. So for $.99 let’s give it a try, mistake #1. The instructions were very unclear so I tried to experiment with its procedures, mistake #2. I included every file that had anything to do with photos and movies moving them into the trash can, mistake #3. I then tried to view my photos to see if my duplicates were removed and just my initial photos remained. A message stopped me saying “an error occurred while repairing permissions” So I started investigating how to repair permissions and nothing I tried worked. So I updated to Apple’s latest operating system, then tried to reboot the system. When I turned on the computer and activated the Photo App there were no photos or videos. Since my 1TB hard drive was 90% full I thought the thing to do would be to empty the trash to make room for my Time Machine to reload photos, Mistake #4. When I reloaded photos from the Time Machine I found that only 534 photos out of 34000+ photos and videos were available. I concluded that I had a failed backup system, Mistake #5. I called Apple and asked them to recover deleted photos since the tag was removed but the file still existed. They referred me to Thumbtack and I found 3 service companies one of which was Precision Tech Services and best of all Rob the owner was local and willing to come to my home as opposed to me carrying my 27” IMac into the mall to the Apple store to have them remove the C drive and then to drive the C drive to the recovery company. The helicopter was coming and I was about to be airlifted off the mountain. Everything said in the prior reviews about Rob proved true. He is a hard working, polite, knowledgeable, logical and most of all patient man. He went out of his way to buy a special firewire cable to fit my 2010 iMac unfortunately the port was not responsive so the program he used had to be downloaded to my computer. The recovery process proved to have many corrupted files. Rather than leaving me with only some of my photos he investigated my backup and found that there was a file labeled “Photos Library 2” which didn’t show any volume and when highlighted did nothing. But Rob realized that it contained a massive file and when left to run overnight revealed 564 GB. Today all my photos and videos have been restored. I should also mention that Rob worked remotely from his home as the process took 3 days to complete. Obviously, I highly recommend him.

Thanks Rob for all the work done. I had accidentally formatted all the data in my laptop and I was looking for some expert who can restore all the data. Others were charging anywhere between 300-1000$ but Rob did it in 90$ with a great level of dedicated service and alternatives for the problem. It was pleasure to do business with Rob and fortunate to come across to know him. I would definitely recommend/refer him for future business. Thanks once again Rob!!!

Had a data recover issue develop after a Windows 10 "Creator" update. The update was a challenge for my older desktop, but my older laptops hard drive just could not take it. Rob was able to recover the data (downloads/documents/pictures, etc), but needed to replace the hard drive and re-install Window 10. 1 day turnaround to boot! Great job to Rob & Precision Tech Services. Many Thanks!

I had an external drive fail, full of precious, but not urgent content. In this situation, I'd never care to spend near-thousands for catastrophic/heroic data recovery. I only wanted to spend up to a very finite dollar amount to take modest steps. Only a small part of what was on that drive was precious, hence the margins of interest/expense. I put a work-request up through ThumbTack, and SPpcR / Matt was the only person that fit my particular needs. Matt was very clear and communicative about the options, odds, and prices of the work they could provide for me. Matt made a house call, was a pleasure to help. In the middle of the "free-evaluation", we actually figured out a better way to get the "precious" stuff of of another drive (from a previous machine), that would be easier to recover than the one I called SPpcR for. Matt is incredibly patient, flexible, and helpful during the free evaluation. I have never known another computer business to take such a personal, open-ended approach without charging huge fees up front. S.P.pc.R. is a very talented, generous and attentive business to work with. It's a shame to think people would not play fair and satisfactory with such a professional. I highly recommend these services, and they'll be my first to call in the (unfortunate) case they're needed again.

Matt helped recover data from my desktop PC, which took a hit during a move earlier this year, and did so successfully and with efficiency. What's more, he strikes the right balance of professionalism and personability while he works which made for a pleasant and assuring experience. I highly recommend him.

Matt was great, very communicative, prompt and responsible. He was honest and did not charge for an evaluation of my hard drive. Sadly he was not able to recover data but I paid nothing. I would use him again.

I messaged with Garrett on thumbtack about my laptop going kaput. I brought it in the following week and Sam was quick and helpful in diagnosing the problem (hard drive). It was replaced and ALL of my data was saved! Sam was nice enough to include the data from another dead laptop I brought in as well! I got my laptop back faster than ever in 1 day! Helpful, quick, friendly, and reasonable price. Will definitely call them again if I run into any problems. Thank you!

After talking to a few handymen, we decided on Fred because he was the sharpest and most professional of all the people we talked to. We had a complicated situation, a TV going over a fireplace and all the connections on a another wall on the complete opposite side of the living room. Fred was very knowledgeable, he understood my project and came up with an efficient plan to resolve my connection and install issue and executed with minor changes. He was on time, prepared and even worked with us on the rate so we could stay under budget. We would recomend Domino Effect to our friends and family and are more than happy to give them a five star rating.

Tom's partner, Fred, went out of his way to fix my PC which had a crashed hard drive. Fred set up a convenient time to meet, diagnosed the problem, ordered a new hard drive and a spare to make a mirrored copy, installed the new drive then helped get the PC back up and running. I was ultimately able to reinstall all the necessary software and retrieve my data from a backup. Great experience and would certainly use these folks again for any PC problem!!!

They are always on time and typically provide better solutions than expected. I will add that they weren't the lowest bid, but they ended up offered a far better, more reliable, and actually cheaper solution that we had budgeted for.

This is the only computer service to contact me about my problem, and it is local, and affordable. If the data is recovered, I pay. If not-nothing owed. It's hard to beat that deal, so yes, 5 stars so far!

I wish everyone did business like File Savers. They explained everything to me, communicated throughout the entire process and even worked with me on the price. They made me feel like they really cared about getting my files recovered. Chris at File Savers understands the definition of customer service.

Mike and his company were very professional. My case was not a severe problem but they took a look at my drive to see if it was recoverable. They felt they could retrieve data but for me the cost of the process to recover was not in my budget. They went above and beyond to see what could be done. When said and done I decided to stop process. But in the future, would call them again if I have a case that is needed I would use them. Thanks for your efforts.

Mike at DriveCrash set my mind at ease immediately. When my drive crashed I didn't know how much of my work I might have lost. Turns out, Mike and his team were able to recover everything in a matter of days from across the country with free shipping and everything. I can't even express how grateful I am for this service and everything they did to communicate clearly how and when they would recover my files.
