Fantastic experience! From start to finish, Vahan and his team were amazing… incredibly knowledgeable, kind, comforting, and easy to talk to. And…. even better, they were able to save most of my corrupted files. Highly recommended!

Vahan and his team were very communicative and helpful. I had an external hard drive that crashed. It was a 2TB Seagate. He was able to get all my files back. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for data recovery to come to 5 stars. They’re very friendly and respectful. They will answer all your questions.

Excellent, courteous, and professional staff. From the front office staff to the engineers they’re all pros! I was told by other places that my data probably wouldn’t be able to be retrieved. And their quotes were ridiculously expensive. One place wanted to charge more than twice the cost of my Mac. Five Star were quite different: Pleasant, never pushy, reasonable prices, and excellent service. They were able to recover all my data and had it ready in less than a day! Highly recommend 5 Star. BTW Ellen is super cool!

Losing data is never a fun experience. However Five Star Data Recovery makes you not feel as bad for dropping a hard drive, or losing any files. The facility is neat and clean, and they have a certified clean room for all the repairs which automatically makes them better than your average. The ladies at the front desk were inviting & sweet. The communication throughout the process was transparent and clear. My hard drive was fixed, recovered, and transferred to a new drive in only a few days, and at a competing, or even better price than the next. Thank you guys!
