Alle meine Daten meiner externen Festplatte konnten wieder hergestellt werden. Innerhalb von einer Woche bekam ich meine Daten auf einer neuen externen Festplatte zurück. Vorab bekommt man ein Angebot und zahlt diesen Preis auch nur, wenn 80% der Daten wieder hergestellt werden können. Netter, zuverlässiger, professioneller Service, welchen ich uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen kann. Bin sehr glücklich meine ganzen Fotos wieder zu haben!
