  • In May 2007 I accidentally plugged a wrong voltage power cord into my external hard drive which damaged my hard drive and my pride.
    The hard drive had over 3 months worth of completed video editing and was crucial to business.
    I quickly did a search for sydney based data recovery and was completely shocked with how expensive and, more importantly at the time, how long the service would take. A Sydney based company had a fee of $550 just to give a quote and the minimum return time was 14 days.
    After searching the net I found Toba Data Recovery, at first I was concerned to even think about sending my precious drive to another state but after speaking to staff I felt confident and safe in their expertise and mailed the hard disc. 
    A few days after I received an email confirming the drive had arrived and within a week another email confirming the drive with all the data was again working and on its way back to me. I do recommend Toba Data to anybody who wants a great speedy service at minimal cost.

  • I was very, very happy with the data that was recovered by Toba from two hard drives. One that crashed back in 2003 and one a few weeks ago. All unreplacable family photos, documents were recovered.
    The service was prompt, efficient and excellent. This particular staff member who helped us also went a bit further to ensure our computer was working okay and provided us with technical and software assistance. Thanks Toba.

  • We run our hotel booking and door pass systems on a RAID server. On Thursday 20th December we experienced a hardware failure. Subsequent attempts to revive the system by our existing third-party technical support could not resolve the problem - our server could not boot. By Saturday afternoon we still had no solution so I called Toba Data Recovery. A technician met me at our hotel and took away our server. They worked Saturday night and all day Sunday to resolve the problem. I was regularly updated with SMS and phone calls. On Sunday evening they returned with our server, fully restored to its previous working condition and with our data intact. The technician stayed with us until we were happy everything was ok. A great outcome for us.

  • I would highly recommend Toba Data Recovery to anyone needing data retrieval. I can't speak highly enough of the skill level and customer service I received.
    It was obvious to me Toba Data Recovery took on my job to get an outcome for me - their customer - rather than make an opportunistic quick buck.

  • Toba Data Recovery really saved the day. As a new business, the last thing I needed was my back up drive to fail. Toba provided a highly efficient and professional service. And unlike the drives manufacturer, they were very keen to help. Many, many thanks.

  • After an unfortunate accident in which my laptop was run over by a 4WD, and totally destroyed, like most people my first thought was for the 3 years of data I had acquired. I travel worldwide for my business and my laptop is the only practical place to store my data, the files contained therein are vital to me and my business. So after a lengthy search and many phone calls I found Lester at Toba Data Recovery. Lester certainly made me feel better about the prospect of getting my data back, and was at all times honest and forthright about the status of the recovery. I found Toba's costs to be far and away better than others I spoke to, and the turnaround time of less than 5 working days was amazing. In the end, all of my data was recovered, and I cant thank Lester enough for his efforts and his personal service. The recovery of data for me was a major worry and of high importance, and lester certainly made me feel better about the situation.

    I will certainly use Toba again when my next laptop gets run over!!

  • Thanks, what a relief, I was told that I had lost my European vacation photos with the cracked cd. Thanks again for the speedy and great priced service now I can relive the great moments again!!

  • I do appreciate the in-depth knowledge of Toba Data Recovery personnel. My external hard drive crushed on a Sunday. I did a quick search on internet, found Toba, emailed my problem and within two hours they gave me a quote. Three other companies wanted me to send first the hard drive for analysis. Then Toba Data Recovery personnel not only recovered the disk, but they recovered some files I deleted by mistake some time ago. Great work, great value for money.
