Can Geek Squad recover your data?
Geek Squad does not do most data recoveries on-site.
Geek Squad can more than likely recover your data depending on what has happened to it. Although Geek Squad can recover your data, this doesn’t mean it will be the best option for you. Most Geek Squad repairs are outsourced to another facility – this means that although they may be able to recover your data, it could take months for you to get it due to the backlog of repairs prior to yours. Due to repairs being outsourced to another facility, this also adds more cost into the recovery process.
Outsourcing means a lack of details.
Don’t expect to be able to ask the clerk for any specific details. Differentiating whether your problem is simple software corruption, bad sectors, a firmware issue, bad heads, or platter damage isn’t going to be happening at the store – it’ll be happening at the facility it is mailed to if your problem is serious.
Here, you’re welcome to check out our facility and also speak to the individual actually performing the data recovery. They’ll be able to give you an idea of what is going on with your drive, and you’re able to speak to them about your problem, rather than having communication diluted through an intermediary.
We don’t outsource.
Unlike Geek Squad, we can recover your data in-house for you due to our dedicated expert team at data recovery. This means you will be supporting a local business in New York and will be up and running with your data far faster! And the best part about it? We can do it for much less than what Geek Squad will offer.
