They were able to recover all files. It was a difficult task and they worked day and night and on the weekend to complete the task. When it was realized it was a more work than they quoted they completed the extra work at no additional charge.

Kotar Data Recovery diagnosed my drive and sent me a response within hours about the problem with the drive and they were able to get my files back on time for me to finish and submit my project. I'm very happy with the experience and the service!

Description of Work
I had a HDD on a Mac computer that stopped working during a file transfer; I had to turn off my Mac and to my surprise it never booted up again; this happened before having to finalize an important project and I needed help to get my files back immediately.

Just days before a critical business deadline, Windows said it could no longer recognize the only memory stick that contained files critical to meeting our obligations. Because the files were on a memory stick, the back-up system we have in place had not backed up the files. Earlier versions of the files turned out to be months out of date. In a word: disaster. Called Robert Kotar and he said he could meet us within an hour. He assessed the stick and decided that while it was fried, but said he thought he could access the data and there was a 90% chance of success. The next day, he called to say that he had recovered all the data and the file structure was in tact. He could see the folders and the files. He stayed at his office until 8 PM, the first time we could meet him. We started opening the files and realized that though he'd been able to extract the file structure, the files were still a shambles -- unreadable and unusable. No problem, he said. Because he had all the data, there was a 99% chance he could restore the files, but it would take more time. He worked that night and at 1 am we got a message that he had found the problem and that we'd get the repaired data the next day. The day we had the data back, all files working as intended. Brilliant!

Description of Work
He recovered the data on a memory stick that had crashed, including files critical to meeting a deadline within the next week. The files were both corrupted and encrypted. He recovered all the data.

I spent the last 4 months recording my EP to send out to different record labels in LA. I stored all the songs (drafts, ideas, lyrics, music sheet, etc.) on a 1TB Seagate hard drive that I, conveniently, never thought to back up. There were over 30 songs on there, along with hundreds of other crucial documents such as photos from my gigs, resumes, contracts, and, schedules. My whole life as a musician was on that drive, and when I accidentally dropped it on the floor, my heart stopped. I quickly plugged it in a computer, trying to see if I had done any damage to my data. When my computer didn't even detect the drive, I started panicking. I had no idea what to do. Luckily, one of my friends told me she had a similar thing happen to her, and recommended me Kotar Data Recovery in South SJ. She said they were very nice and professional, and she was able to get all her data back. Having no other choice, I drove to their office the next day. I was greeted by the owner, Robert, who was indeed very professional and seemed to be very knowledgable about his work. He was friendly and immediately gave me the feeling that everything will be alright. He described me in detail the process of recovery. As I was researching other data recovery services online, I saw a lot of them have a fixed price of recovery (and not based on the problem the drive suffers, which seemed very wierd). That's where Kotar convinced me: they first do a free estimation of your drive, and send you an exact price of recovery based on that on the next 2 hours. Although it was pretty expensive, the price seemed to be completely justified and fair so I decided to give it a go. I regularly received updates on the recovery, and was informed a few days later my data was recovered 100%. Hooray!! I couldn't believe it! Because I couldn't come down to their office, they sent me a new drive with all the data through UPS. They also gave me a free UPS shipping label so I could send them the drive back once I copied the data to my computer at home. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with Kotar. As a product of many years of experience in the field, they seem to have perfected the process of data recovery so it is fast, efficient, and customer friendly. These guys are the best! Thank you!!!
