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.
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 was able to retract all the data from my hard drive!
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.
Chris installed a hard drive and a RAM for me. He is very responsive and knowledgeable.
Joe is super friendly as what his profile name said. He knows about computers a lot. Although he has been through hard times right after he accepted the job request, he still fixed my laptop very well. We understood each other well. I do appreciate this kind of cooperation. If you have any questions, he would love to answer, even after finishing fixing my laptop. If have any problem about your computer, he is the right person to reach.
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.
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.

It is an Austin based company. I started since 1995 doing CCTV and went back to school and obtain my certifications in fiber and voice over IP.
Issues with the hard drive on one of our office PCs. Korrey was able to transfer files that I needed off the hard drive that had issues. He also confirmed what we had been thinking, that the PC I had for my work load was not the right one. Very affordable, and knowledgeable. Thanks Korrey!
I have been to Crazy Dad's for several lap top repairs and have always been satisfied. On one occasion something was just loose. He took time to fix it and when I tried to pay him he would not accept it. Another time, he helped with a repair of a fan and did it on the spot while I waited so I did not have to make two trips. I'm pleased with the service I have, thus far, received.
Martin came when he said he was coming, worked hard and did the job of putting together a metal cabinet and some store bought shelves. He was learning as he went along and was not speedy, but then, he wasn't expensive.

They did the recovery which was important to us. Alec was helpful in overseeing the case. It wasn't quite as fast as we had hoped. The file ownership and permissions were not preserved, but the contents were.
