Client Testimonials

Everyone at Magnext was extremely helpful with my deleted data problem. From the moment i walked in, they all jumped into the problem and answered every one of my questions. Work was begun immediately to restore my deleted files and i had answers back several hours later. I found additional issues after picking up the recovered files which were promptly resolved by telephone and email. Although my issue was rather small, it was very serious to me, and I could not be more pleased with their efforts to get me back working.

Very friendly and fair. I was able to just stop in and drop off my external hard drive without an appointment. After they did the free assessment and gave me the estimate, I did some more searching and found that I had a backup of what I needed already, so we didn't end up going through with it. I was able to stop in and pick my things up without any trouble. Thanks!

Tim and the crew are the real deal. After getting no where with microcenter, but lost time and gas. They were able to pull all my files off a bad hardrive. Amazing turn around time. I hope never to go thru this problem again, but if I do I know who to call.

From start to finish, exceptional service and a great value. When my hard drive failed and I was a few months behind in backing up, Magnext did an incredible job getting every last bit of data back. Tim stayed in contact every step of the way, giving me updates, pricing and options. I am so grateful these guys exist - the only other option would have been to send my laptop away for up to 2 months, spend up to $2K and hope for the best. From start to finish, it was one week, and the pricing was very reasonable. Highly, highly recommend.

After calling a few other places around town(all seemed to be fake), I gave Magnext a call. I was able to talk to a real person on the phone who help guide me down the right path. They saw me the same day and had my files within a couple days. Dropping your external hard drive is not advised(just in case you didn't know). The peace of mind I gained from this was a memorable experience.

Magnext Data Recovery is an outstanding company! The C and D drives on my son's PC both went bad at the same time ... then the USB backup drive with Acronis backups also went bad. Tim (tech rep) took me to his office and we discussed each of the 3 drives in detail and the possibilities and cost of repairs. I left the drives with them and he called me promptly within 3 hours after techs had examined the drives in-depth. He indicated that one of the drives could be repaired with a very high percentage of recovery for minimal cost (Level 1 Repair). The second drive had multiple issues and would be considerably more expensive to repair. They would take a look at the USB drive to see what could be done. I gave them the go-ahead on the Level 1 repair at 5 pm on Friday and they promised to have the drive ready at 10 am Monday morning. They arranged a remote preview of the repair from my home before copying their working image to my new drive. The Level 1 repair was perfect. When I picked up the drives they also indicated they were able to repair the USB drive ... no data but a working drive! Outstanding, very professional company. And Tim made the whole process pain free! I highly recommend this company. Larry Cross

Our computer would not boot up and we thought all of our wedding and kids' baby pictures would be lost. I contacted Magnext and they were able to recover all the data from our computer. The service and professionalism of the staff was incredible. I cannot thank them enough for being able to save such priceless family momentums.

The data recovery specialist (Mark) at Magnext worked on my formatted MacBook hard drive to get my erased pictures back. He was able to get all the data that was recoverable back for me. Their service and customer care is exceptional and I would recommend their services. I wasn't charged anything for evaluation.

I knocked over my USB drive and it wouldn't work anymore. Took it in to Magnext and they got my files back at a very reasonable price.
