Owen did a great job removing malware from our PC, and then transferring our data to a new hard drive. He was courteous, he kept us informed of his progress, and his prices were incredibly reasonable. I'd gladly recommend him to anyone who needs upkeep on their PC.

Prior to me hiring Owen for Data Recovery on a micro SD card, he he was extremely responsive and even offered a few trouble shooting / diagnosis tips. We meet in Central Austin, off of Burnet Rd and Owen quickly diagnosed the faulty SD card.

While we were unable to recover all the data that was lost I believe he did all that could be done. Pleasant to work with and very prompt.

I was so impressed with how quickly they were able to recover data from my dead flash drive. The latest version of my dissertation was on that flash drive so I was pretty panicked that I had lost everything. He recovered everything within a couple hours and the price was much lower than I expected. I will definitely recommend to anyone I know having computer issues. Thanks Daniel!

Outstanding work! Daniel (and all the gang at Capital) went the extra mile to get my wife's data back after she dropped her laptop and the HD stopped working.

My Lenova laptop was damaged when it fell from the lap onto the floor as well as had a heavy object fall on it. Although the laptop was not physically damaged (thanks Lenova for a well built case) the computer would no longer boot, it stopped at the home splash screen. I looked online for a place that could do either a hard drive repair or a data recovery since unfortunately, the laptop had not been backed up and the data is very important. I found many places but so many of them are expensive, which I totally get, hard drive data retrieval can be difficult, time consuming and costly depending on the techniques used to recover the data. Many places offered to come to me which is something I liked, but many of them charge a mileage fee which I have a problem with. Gas is cheap these days so a .50 a mile fee charged both ways can be costly once added to the $85 an hour most of these places charge. I tried Thumbtack for the first time, I had three quotes right away, one of which was not going to work since he is an apple laptop repair technician. Of the two remaining companies, I liked them both. I had a difficult time deciding but when it came right down to it, Luiz took the extra step to ask my model number so he could determine how that laptop is built to determine what he would need and if he was capable of even working on the machine. Additionally, he didn't charge a millage fee. Although the other company I liked had 35 reviews all of them fantastically good, I sometimes want to give the new guy a try to help him build his business. Sometimes you get burned in doing that and sometimes you get a great value. Luiz was FANTASTIC, not only was his pricing much lower then the competition, he also stated he wouldn't charge me if he was unable to retrieve the data, so right off the bat I had nothing to lose. Luiz was on time, he was very friendly, he explained what he was going to do and how he was going to do it. He put me right at ease. He took my hard drive out and connected it to his magic black boxes and was able to eventually get the damaged hard drive to show some data. Luiz worked for almost 3 hours recovering what data he could while at my home, but then he took the computer and spent countless hours recovering everything else that was not completely lost from a hard drive that was gravely damaged and almost unworkable. Along the way he replaced my hard drive with a solid state drive (SSD) and reinstalled Windows 10 along with the other programs I would need. He provided a photo of his driver's license when he took my computer which made us very comfortable. A couple of days later he was back at my house and showed us everything he was able to recover. Along the way he was very polite and very knowledgeable with this stuff. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND having Luiz come and take care of all your computer needs.

Luiz methodically trouble-shot my 4 yr-old desktop HD in an effort to re-set it and recover data when it stopped working. That did not succeed since the HD had failed. Fortunately, I subscribe to a "cloud"-based backup service, and all the data was recoverable. Luiz recommended installing a SSD, which he kindly purchased, and I reimbursed the cost. He then installed it in my computer and transferred all the recovered data to the new HD; he tried for several hrs to recover data from the old HD (unsuccessful). He then came back on site and installed software, apps, and reconfigured the monitor display/computer to the way it looked and worked before, and he re-set my emails. He was exceedingly patient and pleasant on both visits and clearly knew precisely what he was doing. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs this type of service and certainly would have him do computer work for me again, if needed.

Vincent was prompt, informative and very creative in retrieving data from a failed external drive that had all my son's baby pics & videos on it. After several software recovery attempts failed, he put it in the freezer (apparently this is a thing!) and it worked! He also spent extra unpaid time giving me recommendations for a new external hard drive. I would highly recommend him for his professionalism, efficiency, and cost.

Mauricio Ramos responded almost instantly to my Thumbtack Request for an IT Professional to come to my Apt & set up my new laptop & printer. He was able to come out to do this 3 days after he contacted me, which was exactly when I was wanting this done. He was clearly very experienced at what he did (as was indicated from the information on his website, IT Austin.) He set to work immediately, unpacking my printer & setting it up quickly with an ease that demonstrated his expertise in this area. He did the same with my new laptop as well. In addition, at my request, he transferred all of my iTunes music to my new laptop as well as all my photos. I wasn't sure if this would be possible for the music particularly because I didn't have the original cable that allowed my iPhone to connect directly to my laptop. However, Mauricio was able to do this even w/o this cable! It was quite clear to me that he most definitely 'knows his stuff' when it comes to technology! Not only did he figure a way to do this w/o the original cable but figured out a work-around immediately. To me, a person who is not at all tech savvy, he was like a genius. Bottom line - Mauricio did my set up quickly, efficiently & with tremendous expertise. He also charged a very reasonable fee for his service. He was friendly & personable while working, yet always remaining completely focused on the work. I will definitely be using him as my 'go to' IT Professional as needed. He also offers private computer tutoring by the hour & I will be seeking his services for this, particularly to help me setup my Dragon Voice Activation Software. Based on my experience you can't go wrong by hiring Mauricio for any of your tech needs!

You always wonder when using someone for the first time but Michael and the level of service was wonderful. He listened to me and definitely went above and beyond in not only recovering my computer from a nasty virus attack but was honest with me and advised me along every step. Plus I found his services to be very reasonably priced. He's definitely won me as a new client.

Great service. I sent a note via Thumbtack, and within minutes Michael responded and was eager to try and help me. The service was great; he was able to retrieve all of my lost data (which the manufacturer said it couldn't be done) and had it back to me within a day.

I have 2 1/2n year old HP Envy dv6. When I bought it, I had just been diagnosed with Stage IV throat cancer and was told my recovery (if any) would be very long and painful. I bought the best non-gaming machine I could buy. Long story short, I got some kind of crazy virus, so I chunked the hard drive and bought Windows 8.1. Unfortunately for me I installed, I installed the 32 bit version of Windows instead of the 64 bit version It barely ran for 6 months until I realized my mistake. I took it to a place in San Marcos, Texas to install the 64 bit OS. I didn't have the disk, but I still had the original password that came with the software. After a month of them telling me they were working on it, I asked Thumbtack to help find a competent company to fix my computer. Betaone was the first company to return my phone call. They came to my house, replaced a computer screen on another laptop I own in less an hour and took my Envy home and brought it back the next day and it has been running perfectly ever since. They only charge an absurdly low $15 an hour, and they don't charge for travel time. They look up the parts you need and you buy them online.I am an extremely satisfied customer.

Betaone Computer Repair went above and beyond the call of duty to diagnose a recurring problem with my computer. I give them exemplary scores in customer service, integrity, and response time. Despite all of their testing, monitoring, and analysis, however, the problem remains. I am hopeful that they will continue to research the issue, as promised, and that they will ultimately find a solution. If that should occur, then I would give them an unequivocal 5-star rating.

I'd like to thank experts from ACE Data Recovery team. I contacted them for their prompt assistance with file recovery when I had a boot problem with my laptop. I sent laptop's hard drive to ACE Data Recovery and in a week I got brand new external hard drive with all my priceless files on it. Now I know there is at least one company capable to recover files in a professional way.

They were unable to service my drive. I was informed it was too severe. I thought I wouldn't be charged if they couldn't save my data but they charged me for shipping.They can just recycle the HD. Very disappointing experience.

Steven is very nice. I was having computer issues and then it wouldn't turn on and I needed to get photos off of my hard drive before the hard drive failed. My brother in law apparently took my hard drive out last month when tinkering with it and took it with him to pull the info and didn't tell me. Steven opened it up and saw the hard drive was missing and contacted me right away. Even though he couldn't help at that point, he was very nice about it and I'll be using him in the future with any computer issues or if my brother in law can't pull the data from the hard drive.

My husband & I have used Computer Werks for several years and have found that Claude does an excellent job. He has rebuilt computers, transferred data from one computer to another, and in general, done anything that has been required to "get or keep us up and running - quickly". We have, on occassion used other services and never have they met the quality or promptness that Claude exhibits. We recommend him because we know that he will do excellent work, is reputable and will always meet the standards of a "professional." In addition, he always stands behind his work. Claude is our "go to" guy for any computer issues.

Claude has been my special "Guru" for many years, having built several very reliable systems for me which have always worked as desired and lasted well beyond their expected life. He is always available with answers to my questions and help with my problems. He comes to my home quickly as needed for service and repairs and has never failed me. In addition to his excellent computer work, I'm proud to consider him a friend as well. I recommend him enthusiastically for your compting needs.

Somehow my laptop had been completely wiped out and I was unable to access important photographs for my photography business, among some photos of family members whom I had lost. I trusted that Alex would be able to not only repair my laptop to working order, but to retrieve my photos! As expected, I was right! I'm so glad to have a contact like Alex for computer repair diagnostics.
