Gillware recovered hundreds of photos, music files and documents from my ancient, corrupted portable hard drive. The recovery rate appears to be 100%. I was especially pleased with their customer service – they communicated clearly with me at every stage of the process.

Gillware helped us recover a customer’s data from a failed SATA drive that would have otherwise taken us a considerable amount of time and money to rebuild. The recovery process was very straight forward and fast. Thanks for the exceptional service!

I have added Gillware to my resources for “White Room” level data recovery. They have been able to recover important data for a few of my clients. Their pricing is very reasonable for their high level of service. Over all, they provide a high quality level of service.
