My Groundhog Day started out simple. Drive to my office, go into my office, sit down at my desk and start working. Unfortunately, before I could sit down my IPhone charging cord was stuck under one of the wheels of my desk chair. All I did - All I did, was simply pick it out from under my chair and throw it to the side - BIG MISTAKE! It landed not just on the floor, oh no, that would be easy, it landed right into an open outlet on the power strip next to my desk. Not just ANY power strip - oh no, that would be to easy, this power strip had my computer (now fried), monitor (now fried) and two External Hard Drives (now fried) with all my data from the last 6 years.I was referred to Magnext by my Computer Repair facility also in Columbus that I have faithfully used for 26 years in business, so I fully trust their recommendations. They said that "Magnext is the place to go to recover your lost data". And BOY were they right.Magnext diligently worked and worked, and worked and was able to recover my data. Oh I know it took some doing and some research but the point is, they took the time, didn't give up, and recovered all of my data (which included a major project for a current client on deadline - I might add) and also my daughters wedding of 1/14/23.Thanks for Magnext and the whole team, for taking the time, and the adventure, and not giving up and helping me recover, and use again, in a more safe way, my data!I guess, I could have made this shorter and said, "MAGNEXT Saved the Day". Because they did. I highly recommend them!

Friendly sales associates will do their absolute best. In a somewhat bad location to get in and out of the parking lot.

I had given my hard drive for diagnosis. It was mentioned that one of the 4 read-write heads were damaged and I was provided a quote to have it replaced from a donor drive and data copied. I politely declined as it was something I was not going to afford for the data I had in the drive. I had said that I would pick up the drive I went there and I was provided with an disassembled drive (drive in a SCS bag and cover in my hand) See picture. I expected them to put it all together and hand it over as I went like 3 full days after I conveyed my decision to pick it up.I am not very satisfied with the way the drive was handed off which is why I am giving a 3 star. Though I understand the diagnosis was free, it doesn't mean you provide a dismantled drive.

Great place if your valuable data goes in the fritz. Staff is friendly and did a great job walking me through their process.

Fully recovered all data from a drive that I was pretty sure was destroyed beyond help by a combination of an electrical short and a brief ensuing fire. Being local is a plus too!

I have genuinely never felt as cared for by a tech company before. These guys are more than fair with their prices, give very good explanations for what the problem is, and are VERY friendly. I'd highly recommend them to anyone I know, without a second thought.

My HDD backup drive was slow and making strange noises, so I dumped my data onto my desktop. I wasn’t able to move two large media files, and after force-quitting the drive, it wouldn’t show up in externals on my computer. I dropped off the drive to MagNext yesterday, and Mark checked me in within 5 minutes. He said the diagnostic was free, and contacted me a few hours later with the result. To fix the drive would be cost prohibited compared to returning it to the manufacturer for a replacement, so I didn’t end up paying them for repair. I picked up the drive today, and Mark explained the findings in detail. He even provided me with a letter of my results to include with my warranty return! I’m so grateful he was honest with me and they offer the free diagnostic, because now I’m eligible for a replacement. In the future, I will bring all my devices to them for repair help!

So I’ll start this off by saying I don’t leave many reviews unless a place has made me feel some type of way. As soon as I called, Mark answered and was extremely knowledgeable about the issues I was having with my 1996 Hard drive. The files on this were very important as it has software that’s no longer available. I took the hard drive in to Magnext this morning and got a phone call late afternoon saying the drive is ready! These guys are the best. They have a lab and do onsite recovery which makes going to them a non event. Thanks guys for saving me. I will definitely recommend 10/10. Till next time.

They kept my hard drive for a year pulling me along telling me that it'd be able to get fixed one day. I finally found a company in California who could fix it. When I called Magnext to let them know I would be there shortly to pick up my hard drive, they seemed a little flustered and told me they "would get it ready for me." Once the hard drive was diagnosed by the other company, they called me to tell me the disc inside of the hard drive had been broken and my hard drive was extremely poorly & loosely put back together. I had never taken a part my hard drive or dropped it. It's always been well taken care of. Therefore, the only way for the disc to have been broken was by the person who opened it. Unfortunately for me, this is costing me now a LOT more money to fix, and there is a possibility it won't be recovered at all due to the disc being broken. (Mind you - Magnext had never once mentioned a broken disc.). I will say the people who worked there were always nice to me and the pricing was affordable. However, I no longer trust them and will not be using their service again.

My brother and I brought in some drives they then veryified the integrity of the drives for free then we had them migrate the data and they were super helpful and reasonably priced! Will definitely use them again if I need to.

Full disclosure, I work here.Mark cares about the customers and works hard to give them the best chance possible. No over promising or gratuitous up selling.Sometimes customers are in a really tight spot and it's a good feeling when you can take a catastrophe and make it like it never happened. Sad when you can't help though.

Wonderful experience. Super anxious to lost all of my important data, family photos, old school documents and files. They quickly and easily pulled the data off my old drive and transfered it to a new drive. Mark and Andrew were extremely helpful and informative throughout the entire processes.

Even though they weren't able to recover the data we needed (BADLY damaged drive), they swapped in replacement parts and spent several days working with me to identify target files and sent outstanding reports. Communication/responsiveness was excellent. I'll definitely use them again.

Magnext helped me out in a big way. Help me find some important documents on a flash drive that was reaching it shelf life. They recovered the items I needed and I am so grateful. They also gave me some good advice. They definitely know their work. A Must Go place when you're having issues of all kind in computers and more.

When my flash drive wouldn’t work 5 hours before a deadline. I called and came right in and they looked at my flash drive and pulled everything off and moved it to a new flash drive! AMAZING SERVICE AND AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!!!

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.
00:33 04 Jul 18
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.

I lost all my work files on my hard drive and needed them back ASAP for my project. I contacted MagNext and they retrieved the files in a quick manner!

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.
