Data Recovery

I am so pleased with the service I received from Roger. He was able to fix and retrieve all of the content on my old broken computer’s hard drive and input it onto a new drive, saving over 5 years’ worth of old photographs and videos which I thought I was going to lose forever! I would highly recommend his services if you are ever in need of a repair. Friendly, efficient and communicative.

Who doesn’t make mistakes? Have you ever deleted something by accident? Consider yourself lucky if you’ve never lost weeks, months, or even years of work by way of the bin.

If you ever find yourself in this miserable situation don’t worry because Computer Repair Essex offers a full data recovery service from £150.00 for hard drives, USB pen drives Apple computers, and even camera flash drives.
