Ever find yourself in the position of not being able at access your pictures, music, documents, tax returns, QuickBooks, etc… and have that awful feeling in the pit of your stomach that it’s all LOST?  If you find yourself in this predicament, don’t panic.  We can help.  Just because your computer is “dead” doesn’t mean the data is all gone.

The Good Geeks have numerous specialty tools designed to extract data from “dead computers.”  In most cases (apx. 95% of the time) we can locate the data and back it up onto another device or DVD for you.

Our Best Advice

Regularly back up your data, either manually on a local device, or subscribe to an online back-up service like CARBONITE, or BOTH.  The online back-up is safe and secure and works automatically–for only a couple of dollars a month.  This is worth ever penny if your data is critical.  (Irreplaceable photos, tax/accounting records, expensive music collections, PhD thesis/ self-published novels…)
