Magnext Data Recovery

Magnext Data Recovery is the only lab in the Columbus OH area! Anyone else claiming to be a data recovery lab is generally using usually a virtual office location or UPS mailbox with a purchased 614 phone number. If you try visiting these locations you’ll see right away that these businesses are non-existent there, and they’ll want you to ship your drive with your priceless data all over the country.

We offer a free evaluation and have a strict “No Data, No Charge” policy. Beware of places charging an evaluation fee, these places typically make most of their money off of evaluation fees, shipping your device back and forth, and only taking on the easy jobs.

Free Evaluation

We offer a free evaluation / quote for any project at our convenient Columbus, Ohio location. You can drop-off, ship, or have us pick your device up for evaluation.
Stop on by or give us a call today!

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
