Hardware failures can happen and you can be left with a paperweight instead of a functioning computer.  If your hard drive fails, we can attempt to retrieve the lost data and relocate it to a useable location.

Data recovery is a service that is performed when you have had a computer failure that does not allow you to access your hard drive and data. The failure could be caused by a virus, corruption, power loss or just complete hardware failure.  We understand that your data is valuable and we will make every effort to recover it. Even a partially damaged hard drive may be recoverable. We will physically remove the hard drive and directly extract the data. We will back up your data to another computer or an external hard drive and relocate it to a useable location, depending on your preference. There may be some instances where your hard drive has been too physically damaged to the point where retrieval is not possible. If the data retrieval process is unsuccessful, it will be at NO COST to you outside of the standard Checkup fee.

NOTE: Files that can be recovered are files such as pictures, music, videos, emails, word documents, excel documents, etc. Programs themselves cannot be backed up.

"Computer Hard Drive" by Grant Cochrane



If you do not own your own external drive. You can have GPcuztomz provide you one for additional cost or you can purches a external drive from almost any electronic retail store.


When you are looking for an external hard drive here are a few things to consider:

  • Size - How much data you can store. Most people range from 50GB to 100GB worth of data. However, if you have a lot of videos, music, or pictures, you may want to consider a larger size such as 500GB to 1TB (1024GB). This is based on previous services only. To find a more accurate size amount, we suggest scheduling a Checkup appointment.
  • Software - Some brands may come with their own setup software to be configured as an auto backup. This means that you don't need to worry about backing your data up manually.
  • Portability - Desktop drives are stationary and require a power source as well as a USB cable. Whereas, portable drives are smaller and only require a USB cable for power.
  • Speed - The speed of an external hard drive is stated as a numerical value.  If you have a compatible port, a USB 3.0 can transfer information up to 10x faster than a USB 2.0.  These drives are also backwards compatible; meaning that you can use a USB 3.0 on a 2.0 port and vice versa.
