Your computer files are important to you.

The fact is, hard drives fail. If you have not backed up your information, you could lose all your data. Luckily, there is a way to get your files back. Data recovery helps you recover important files, photos, music, and videos.

What is Data Recovery?

Do you know about the recovery process? Hard drive recovery is the process of restoring lost files. To perform data recovery, you have two steps. Recover data from the hard disk. Save the data to a new hard drive.

The Pricing For All Of This Was Incredibly Affordable.

I bought my computer from someone who custom-built it. It had every program that I needed to do graphic design work and had many files that I had yet to transfer to storage. It was an incredible workhorse. Then one night, inexplicably, my workhorse of a computer simply stopped working. It would not even connect to the monitor. Fearing the worst, I found IQ Computer services and resigned myself to perhaps having my data recovered at best. I found hope, however, in some of the reviews, I read on Yahoo. So, I dropped off my modem and hoped for the best. A couple of days later I received a phone call that not only was my data intact but that my computer was up and running. Marcus was able to clear the system of viruses, as well as getting it to run faster, and the service was fast and friendly. The pricing for all of this was incredibly affordable. I recommend IQ Computer services for all of your computer service issues.
