Used this firm’s services twice (once for single sata drive and second time was a damaged RAID-5 config.) and was extremely happy with everything. Great customer service, knowledgeable staff and technicians, and a company you can trust to recover your lost data successfully and quickly. Great Company!

Master Computer Technician at DML Computer Repair
I own an IT company and have been reselling both Gillware’s recovery and online backup service for several years. The service is affordable and reliable. Their customer service is wonderful. I have always gotten the help I need, when I need it. You don’t have to ask them to give you what they offer new customers as they tell you about new and improved services and change your accounts to save you money. This is the way they show you they appreciate your loyalty! I’m a happy and loyal customer.
Owner at A-Z Used Computers
My first hard drive crash, and I didn’t know what to do. A local computer repair business recommended I contact Gillware. I was understandably nervous since I had personal data (credit card info, receipts, income tax information, etc.) stored and was worried about my data remaining secure. Gillware walked me through the entire data recovery process, both via phone and via email. Their professional and friendly service put my mind at ease. I recommend Gillware without hesitation!

Hands down the leader in Data Recovery with the fastest turn around and easiest process. Recommend them for my smallest and largest clients alike.
Director of Sales Capital Region at Oncall Telecom International
Highly recommend this company! When our computer crashed we were devastated and extremely concerned about the data loss. We took the computer to a local company and had no luck. I heard about this company through a friend after telling the story, and I thought I would give it a try. I am extremely happy that we were able to recover all of the data.Thanks Gillware!

Had 10 years of important work files/data all stored on one drive that decided to finally crash. Contacted Gillware and sent drive over and they immediately gave me results on all my data that was recoverable which was around 98% of everything. Glad to have all my files back and proper backup methods in place now. I highly recommend Gillware services.
SharePoint Administrator at American Cancer Society
My customers depend on me to provide data recovery when things go wrong. Often enough, things go wrong; in spite of my efforts to encourage customers to backup their data. I found Gillware a few years ago and have never looked back. They are the ONLY company I would trust with my customers data recovery needs. Gillware recently did another fantastic job for a customer; recovering all data from a hard crash. Thank you, Gillware!
Owner at Technical Resource Management Co.
Gillware absolutely exceeded my expectations and recovered my irreplaceable data. I was lazy and didn’t get a new external hard drive for my Mac and of course it crashed on me. After going through phone support with Apple, a local Apple repair shop, and a big data recovery company in California, a friend mentioned Gillware. The company in California had told me they weren’t sure if they could recover my data and, if they could, it would be a minimum of $2,400 to do so. Gillware responded to my inquiry within 15 minutes on a Saturday night and quickly mailed me everything needed to send in my HD for a free estimate. A few days later, they said they could recover my data and it would cost only $600 to do so! A few days after that, my data was back in my hands, 100 percent recovered. During the whole process they were courteous and helpful in making sure that I understood everything that was going on. I cannot thank you all enough!
I have been using Gillware data recovery for 2 years now with excellent results. Recently a client of mine lost 12 years of financial files due to hard drive failure. They are in the process of selling the business and needed the data to give to the bank. Gillware received, recovered and overnighted the data within 5 days! My client was astounded at the turn around time and very pleased.

I recently had a damaged memory card for my digital camera containing many valuable photos of present and future home listings I was working on and thought all was lost. Gillware was able to retrieve all my work to a CD and really saved the day! Prompt service, fair price, excellent communication along the way. This company is truly “Above The Norm”

I work for Accretive Health; we work with highly sensitive Protected Health Information. Gillware is our client whenever we have crashed hard drives.

Business Manager at Ruff Plastic Surgery
On the evening of May 20th, 2013 our business suffered a catastrophic loss when our main office and retail building was destroyed by a fire. We managed to recover the hard drive from a computer that stored vital information for rental contracts that represented thousands of dollars worth of revenue. Despite being singed and sooty, Gilware was able to recover all of the primary data from the drive and get us up and running within a day of dropping off the damaged drive.
IS Director at McFarlane Manufacturing
Gillware is a first rate organization. I was impressed with our down to earth conversation about my specific problems and concerns. Everything was done as explained – no surprises. I was given updates and a timeline for the recovery. I hope I don’t make this mistake again but if I have another data recovery problem, Gillware will be my first call. I would recommend Gillware without hesitation. Great job.

Professor at UT Dallas
Gillware was an excellent company to deal with. Their process and professionalism is top notch. When calling in as a new client, the first person I was in contact with was extremely knowledgeable as we talked about the technical issues, process, and quotes. They carried forward with the technical group giving regular updates on recovery status, and the personnel dealing with invoice and shipment. Would recommend to anyone seeking data recovery services.

Gillware’s extraordinary services far exceeded my expectations! From my initial phone call to the receipt of a new hard drive with all of my data, I had great confidence in Gillware. Representatives were professional, courteous, and sympathetic. I felt like I was one of their most valued customers. Their pricing as well as email and phone status updates all added to my feeling like a preferred client. Thank you, thank you Gillware for finding my data!!
Instructor at Palo Alto Adult School
At Vermeer Midwest we have used Gillware in the past for data recovery and their services have always been stellar. From the first engagement to the current one we just completed we have been very satisfied with the services they provide us. The ability to get an estimate and know the costs to a data recovery is something that I value. The process is quick, painless, and very efficient from the time you contact them until the recovered data is returned to you.

I use Gillware to perform data recoveries for my clients that I am unable to handle. They have outstanding customer service, and I have yet to send them a drive that they have not been able to recover data from.
Owner at NEPA Geeks
I broke the golden rule …. yes, I know better but I moved my office and because things were a mess I did not re-install my external back-up drive. Well, as Murphys law would have it, my hard drive crashed BIG !! My local computer store techs were unable to recover my data and pointed me to Gillware. To get to the point, I just received my USB drive from them with a FULL data recovery.Gillware ROCKS !! … excellent customer service and follow up !! they are a class act !!
Owner at 1CustomerPlus
I had the best experience with Gillware. Their Customer Service is incredible. They never give up explaining the issues (especially those of us to lack IT experience) and they worked with me patiently along the process to make sure I was 100% satisfied. And I am! Thank you folks.
Alexandra Santa Cruz
I was very pleased with the professionalism and sense of urgency displayed by Gillware. I greatly appreciated how pleasant everyone was given that I was under a significant amount of stress after destroying the hard drive on my work laptop. I highly recommend Gillware!

President at Wireless Legacy Corp
My clients are very happy with this service. This is what they had to say: “We are very pleased! Although expensive, after spending a few hours looking at all of the pictures that we recovered, my wife and I agreed that it was well worth it!! Thanks again for coordinating the process for us!” Thanks to all @ Gillware.
Alan A. Detor
Owner at Detor Computer Services
The loss of all data from my hard drive left me devastated. I phoned our IT provider who recommended Gillware Data Recovery. I trusted his advice and was glad I did. Gillware was able to recover 99.9% of my files. They had to do a lot of “handholding.” The Specialists and Technicians were great. I feel great! Thanks, Gillware.
Owner at Kapp Creative Group
Gillware has proven themselves time and time again. In any business relationship where there is reliance upon expertise beyond your direct control, you want to know that a company will represent themselves as if they were part of your organization. Well, I consider Gillware an extension of my franchise as they have performed well above and beyond any expectations from me, my company, and my clients. Gillware will continue to receive my data recovery work!
Area Director at Fast-teks Pro Business Solutions
Gillware recovered data from disks I had accidentally formatted. Important work data was recovered but the most important files were pictures that my daughter had trusted me to keep safe. They were very professional and concerned, they understood how important my personal files are to my family.Gillware was successful where the first place I contacted examined the disks and told me this could not be done. And Gillware’s prices were a third the price of what the first recovery company quoted.
Owner at Tom Cosgrove Consulting
Superior customer service. Best experience I have had with a Data Recovery company. Will do business with them again.
Network Services Manager at Crowley Maritime Corporation
After 18 months of many “firsts” with our 18 month old daughter, our PC crashed! We were devastated at the idea of losing the photos & video. We took it to several “experts” & got the same bad news.. After a brief conversation with Gillware, they instilled a new confidence. Gillware’s NO up front fees took the risk out of a potentially unsuccessful recovery. In the end they provide a firm price, recovered almost 100% of our data, & even went above & beyond to provide an external HDD of my choice.
Senior Major Account Manager at Martin Group
We recovered a critical video that could not have been replaced, the video data was irrecoverable due to a dropped 2T hard drive. Essentially you send your hard drive to Gillware and then “buy” the recovered data if desired. Viewing the data before committing to purchase is wonderful because we were not sure if the drive held our missing video.The staff reports of the various stages of recovery was excellent,the proof of the pudding was we did indeed recover our one of a kind data successfully.
Technical Coordinator at University of Florida
The local IT guy could not recover any data. Our online backup was useless. It had all the data I didn’t need. Gillware was amazing! They recovered all of our data that was said to be gone. If I ever find myself in this unfortunate situation again, they will be the first call I make.
Vice President at Quality Die Casting Co.
Excellent service, knowledgeable and professional. Great turnaround, thorough process, and fair price for services performed. I thought all was lost, and Gillware was able to recover 100% of my data. Thank you again!

Gillware’s service was excellent. Good communication throughout the process, and I was impressed with the ability to view the recovered data before committing to purchase it. I would definitely recommend them for your data recovery needs.
Senior System Administrator at City of Lee's Summit
When I was unfortunate enough to have a crashed a solid state drive, I was very relieved to learn that Gillware was able to recover data from it at a very reasonable cost compared to the prices quoted by other data recovery companies – who couldn’t do the job. When dealing with their customer representatives, they have been nothing but pleasant, helpful, and professional.
Project Manager/ Psychologist at Pearson Assessment
Gillware was exceptionally pleasant and helpfull to deal with. They went more than the extra mile to ensure I had all the information and feedback I needed, and most importantly, they managed to recover almost all of the data from my external hard drive after my own IT professionals at work totally failed.
Acting Associate Dean of the School of Art and Design at Fashion Institute of Technology
I made the mistake of having my data stored on only one drive. When that drive went down, Gillware recovered it where the local community college IT department failed. While the price was extremely high for a sole proprietor like myself, I had no choice. I had to recover any and all of my past work and treasured family photos. Gillware was extremely helpful, and everyone I had contact with was intelligent, professional, and had a terrific attitude. I highly recommend Gillware’s services.
Illustrator at Ryan Loghry Design
I would recommend their recovery services to anyone in the unfortunate position of needing this. Professional, quick and a standardized process that was very reassuring. They also beat, by far, the price of any local recovery services I found.
Director of IT at Preferred Legal Support
They did what they said they would do. All files were recovered.

Excellent service. They saved data I foolishly forgot to back up – all the data. Remarkable, and a better price point than other services.
Director of Content Marketing at VoltDB
The data recovery was fast and successful. Customer service was excellent, leads you from beginning to an end of the process. Answers all your questions, provides different options. Communication was flawless and competent. Your emails are answered in few hours the latest. I like that Gillware provides prepaid shipping label for UPS, free evaluation and later on a list of files that were recovered for evaluation. Affordable prices. I recommend this company and if needed, I would use it again.
Senior Research Associate at Marquette University
These guys know what they are doing, and they do it well. If you have a bad drive and need the files, send it to them.
IT Operations Manager at Origami Owl
Gillware saved our data from a crashed RAID 5 Array. The data recovered was very critical to our operations. The personnel at Gillware are the most professional people I have ever encountered. The engineers also did a great job of explaining the issue, and how it would be fixed in laymans terms, which made it very easy for me to understand. If you ever need these types of services, I would highly recommend Gillware.
Facility Manager at Windmill International
We have been using Gillware for almost 2 years now. When we can’t help the customer recover the lost data, Gillware steps in and delivers. With over 20 years in the IT industry, I have used several different data recovery vendors in the past. Gillware is the only provider who could provide best price, best service and best recovery time. They are a welcome end to 9 years of searching for the best data recovery company. I recommend Gillware to anyone needing data recovery.
Owner at Digital Cowboy Computers
Our organization recently used Gillware for the first time (on a recommendation from our IT provider). We had a major hard drive malfunction. We sent it over to Gillware and they did an exceptional job of data recovery for us. They were extremely quick and very thorough. Their staff communicated very well through out the entire process. We were extremely satisfied with the results. We would use them again and highly recommend them to others.

Great company to partner with for data retrieval.
Information Technology and Services Freelance
Gillware was helpful and offered me options. I liked that I could deliver my drive in person and pick it up myself to avoid the expense and delays of shipping.
Associate Researcher at University of Wisconsin - Madison
Gillware was able to recover a year’s worth of work and ministry files as well as 6-months of family photos. Their customer service folk were always helpful and made sure I had FULL answers to my questions each time I interacted with them. The tech support individuals explained EACH step of the process and NEVER seemed impatient with my unintelligent/uninformed questions. The service took well over 3 weeks, but met the desired result WITHOUT the HUGE fees that so many other services charge.
Webmaster at NAD Youth Ministry Department
I’ve now had 2 very successful data recovery experiences. (I keep working to have others back up their data, but I still haven’t achieved 100% coverage). Gillware’s process, professionalism, and personable customer service is unsurpassed. I will remember them for future needs. If your data hasn’t been backed up, you’ll want to know about Gillware.
Director of Information Services at Church of the Brethren
We had a RAID go down the day after Christmas on our main server. Two drives failed on our RAID 5 and that is catastrophic most of the time. Gillware was able to recover most of the data including all of the critical data from our Raid 5 Array. We are grateful. They were very friendly, informative, fast, and worked with us on payment. Thanks so much for your professional and courteous service! We highly recommend the service! The pricing was the best we found for RAID recovery as well!
Auto Flame Premium Artist/Colorist at CMG
We had a USB storage device fail with a large amount of laboratory data. I contacted Gillware and they were able to successfully recover our seemingly lost information. Even with our difficult schedule, they were very accommodating. I had heard of their services while working with New Vision Networks. They provided excellent service at the highest level of professionalism. I will definitely recommend them to all my IT friends and colleagues.
Information Technology Director at Cellular Dynamics International
Gillware was able to recover several terabytes of data for me from a Drobo system that had a 2 disk failure. Not a single file was lost. I couldn’t be more happy with their service. Communication was great throughout the entire process and they were very responsive the questions that I asked. Hopefully I won’t need any data recovery in the future, but if I do, I will definitely be coming back to Gillware.
Hardware Engineer at NVIDIA
Gillware specialists recovered all of my lost data and helped me every step of the way. Any time I had questions, every representative i spoke to would patiently walk me through the process until I fully understood what needed to be done. I would highly recommend their services.
Independent Consultant at Arbonne International
I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my data recovery needs. They saved me lots of tears and headaches. Very happy with the service & outcome.
Gillware has a 99% recovery rating on our end. They are wonderful to work with and very well priced. The entire process from start to finish is easy.
Owner at Creole Technologies
First experience. Their customer service responsiveness/quality of communication is very good. The recovery took a little longer than estimated, and was a little more expensive than I expected. It was a Western Digital Raid 1 set, so the work involved extracting from WD’s proprietary data format. However, their check up process (without a fee), view tools, and ultimately the success of retrieving the data was why I would recommend them. I will return to them if I need their services again.
Photographer at Houston Ballet
Great customer service.
Business Development Director at BI WORLDWIDE
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.
Instructor at DePaul University
Gillware was recommended to me by an HP employee. I found them online and submitted my USB Flash drive. They were able to recover nearly everything from my corrupted flash drive. Thankfully, what they couldn’t recover existed in a different format that they could. I got ALL my data back. It was well worth the price. My dreams for the future are now secure. And I learned a valuable lesson to always have my manuscripts in many forms and in many places.
Horseback Riding Instructor at Hillside Training Stables
Used Gillware to recover an SD card that I accidentally reformatted that had over 1200 pictures on it. Worked well and I got back well over 95% of the pictures.
Owner at Utter Precision, Inc.
Just used Gillware to retrieve data off a back-up drive. Process was simple and 100% effective/successful. I was really impressed. The service was reasonably priced considering the value of the data to me and my family. The staff at Gillware are friendly, well informed and focused on delivering excellent customer experiences. The process was extremely easy. The opportunity to decide if the data recovered is worth paying for is a great service feature. I highly recommend Gillware.
Director at A3E
Thanks Gillware, for successfully recovering all of my lost, priceless files! You are the best, and I will recommend you to everyone I know!
Education Manager at Shark Reef Aquarium
My hard drive went from clicking to dead. When I restored my backup, I found out that I was missing some key files that my program saved to an obscure (not backed up) location. I also lost a big chunk of my email and contact history in Outlook. Gillware did a great job quickly analyzing my data, providing me with a list recoverable files and sending me out a new drive with ALL of my data. The process was easy and painless, and was well worth the expense to retrieve critical data.
Certified Public Accountant
I needed to have an erased video recovered, so I researched several companies available. Not only was Gillware Data Recovery the best priced service, I was met with a person on the telephone who was very reassuring, listened to all the information I had and what I was looking to get in return, and the most convenient service. Gillware Data Recovery had my video recovered within a day, and for a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend their business!
Marriage and Family Therapist at Xcite Steps
Sadly, I was not properly backed up when the hard drive on my computer died. Although I did not drop my computer on the ground or immerse it in water or fire, somehow the drive became very damaged. After doing a LOT of research, I found Gillware. They were by far the best priced and most honest seeming of all the clean room data recovery companies. They spent a painstaking amount of time imaging all of the files that were recoverable, thus saving me a lot of family memories.
CEO and Co-Founder at Playdate Planet
I recently used Gillware to recover all of our family pictures from a failed hard drive. I had a steadfast back up running through Memeo (never use them!) that had the data encrypted with the key stored on the failed hard drive. Very little of my back up was attainable, so I used Gillware. A tremendous and professional service that had my hard drive recovered onto an external usb drive with the time frame they explained. The did what they said they would do when they said they would do it.
Managing Director at Alvarez & Marsal
We use Gillware for all of our Data recovery projects. As Matthew mentioned it is a great benefit to be able to see what is going to be possible before spending the customer’s money.
President at Branham IT Solutions LLC
Gillware recovered my critical files successfully. Clear, concise, prompt communication–no hidden fees or charges. Very customer-orientated.

Owner/Broker at Forrester & Co. Real Estate Appraisers
I lost an external hard drive and where others failed to recover my data, Gillware Data Recovery was able to retrieve 99% of my files. They are very professional from start to finish.

Best-in-class customer support, highly skilled engineers – this is the company you want in your corner when that mission-critical drive stops working.
Systems Engineer at Congressional Budget Office
Gillware was able to do a full data recovery on a very dead hard drive for me. The customer service was excellent. Through each step of the process, I was kept informed through emails or phone calls. I think I heard from someone every couple of days. I liked that I was able to ask if specific files were able to be recovered, and they were viewable before having to pay. The turnaround time was fast, and the follow up was great. Everything was clear and there was no guessing involved. Excellent!

Gillware has provided us (Friendly Computers Las Vegas) with excellent service over the years and we will continue to recommend them!

I tried other options first with zero results. A co-worker suggested Gillware. I had never heard of them. They guaranteed results or no charge. All my data was recovered. In 2 days! Great service, great turnaround, great results.
VP, Executive Creative Director at Stephan & Brady Advertising
I have routinely recommended Gillware to my consulting clients for timely recovery of sensitive and important data, and all have responded with rave reviews as to their technical competence and knowledgeable customer support. There really is no reason to look elsewhere for solid data recovery services.
Senior Consultant at Simple Dynamics
In both my MSP and my chain of retail computer repair stores, I have used Gillware dozens of times to perform data recovery on drives that looks 100% non-functional and dead.

Managing Member at RAK Industries, LLC
When you have a data recovery situation, you need the best and that is why Gillware came highly recommended to me recently. I had a malfunction with my raid array and had to send it in for inspection. Gillware Data Recovery was able to save years of valuable photographs, as well as many media files. They are the consummate pros with regard to data recovery and customer satisfaction at all levels. I highly recommend Gillware for any hard drive data recovery issues.
Owner at G2 Digital Media
I had a firmware issue on an external hard drive and went to Gillware on a recommendation to try and recover my data. They offered to see what they could extract free of charge, then once they were able to recover data (all of it was recovered in my case!), I was allowed to bring in my own hard drive for them to put the data on. They were fast and professional and did a great job keeping me in the loop via phone calls and email messages. I would definitely use their services again.
Human Resources Consultant at Thermo Fisher Scientific
Gillware is our go to for data recovery! Of course we always recommend having a verified backup on all important data, but when all else fails, Gillware has never let us down! They are prompt and have great communication. You always know what to expect. I highly recommend them.
Vice President at Dental PC
A drive got dropped. Clicking. Local diagnosis lead to Gillware. Calls. Conversations had. Emails. Packages. Diagnosis. Gasp! (of course). Data was critical to success of our business. It took longer than we had been told, but they did deliver on the promise. Communication was clear throughout the process; and while expensive proposition they did a great job. My first reco is that you don’t drop your drive. But you wouldn’t be here if you hadn’t. So, my second is that you use Gillware. Now.
Account Director at Thalo Blue Design
What an excellent company to work with. Communication through the data recovery process was excellent, and my client is happy with the results.

President at Lightly Photography, Inc.
I have been a loyal Gillware customer for nearly as long as they have been in business and have found them to be above par in terms of their capabilities, service, support and expert staff. Prior to Gillware I had used a number of other recovery companies which were far more costly and with less than stellar results. Since then, I have never even considered utilizing any other organization for my data recovery needs and they have always been able to provide me with 100% results.
IT Operations Admin at Mastech Inc.
I first heard about Gillware on a forum 7 years ago and have used them ever since for crashed hard drives for my IT clients. They have by far the best prices and great customer service. Then they called to pick my brain about a back up system they were developing. I was honest and said it would work for my larger clients but not my smaller ones. So they worked to change this by improve their offering and pricing with continued communication. They have THE BEST customer service and relationships!

I have been working with Gillware for close to five years.

To date I’ve deployed the online backup solution to over 80 clients with 100% satisfaction.
President/CEO at Computing Technology Solutions, LLC
We are partners with Gillware and recently used them in an emergency situation for one of our clients, a CPA.

Gillware saved the day!
President at The Computer Warriors, Inc.
With my lifetime of my data getting a data wipe and being told it was not possible to retrieve, I tried Gillware because of my IT friend’s advice. Gillware retrieved almost all of my data fast. I recommend Gillware as one of the best in the business of data recovery.

Working with Gillware on data recovery for my customers is a no-brainer. Gillware has made every step easy and straight forward, from requesting service to receiving the recovered files. They not only will explain each step of the process to my customer, they keep the customer updated with the status. All of my customers who have used Gillware have stated to me they are very pleased with Gillware and their service; very professional, great communication, great service, very good pricing.

Gillware recovered all my files on a dropped portable hard drive. They did an excellent job communicating the extent and cost of their services up front and then delivering.
Director of Investments at Cleveland Clinic
I have used Gillware twice to retrieve data from defective legacy test system hard drives. The service was fast and the recovery was 100% effective in both of my situations. I highly recommend them.
Supervisor of Test Engineer Staff at Plexus Corporation
Gillware provided a quick recovery of data that was stored on a non-functional hard drive for my school. We were able to use the recovered data to restore valuable information to the network and our student database.
Comp Sci Teacher at Christ King School
The service really did save a 40 year marriage and all the pictures that went with it. You know what they say when your home is threatened by fire the first things people grab are the photo albums as those are irreplaceable and for us the thought of our “Cloud” backup (Crashplan) not having backed up our pictures when our hard drive failed was truly devastating.. Gillware saved the day, did so very reasonably (for that type of a service) and we’re thrilled with the results and back to having all of our memories in place.

We have known about Gillware for some time now. We just recently had a data loss situation with one of our clients and were able to utilize the hard drive recovery services Gillware provides. The process went very smooth and the data was completely recovered. Computer Know How recommends Gillware Data Recovery to all of our customers that suffer a data loss incident. Its nice to know you can get it back even when the circumstances look really bad.
Owner at Computer Know How
The Staff of Gillware are awesome. They have recovered multiple drives for my company and they allow me to take care of customers quickly and efficently. Their Backup Solutions are also a good tool to keep from doing a data recovery in the first place.
Area Director at Fast-Teks Pro Business Solutions
My client had an old hard drive from a Windows ME system where the read/write heads were failing. Gillware was able to recover a large portion of his data including several pst files. Client was happy with the cost and the recovery of otherwise irreplaceable pictures. For this case I worked with Justin and he did an outstanding job. I would not hesitate to recommend their services and will continue to use their services in the future.
Owner at Capable Computers LLC
When my computer crashed, I thought I lost many years of pictures, documents and much more. Several other places would not promise any recovery from my hard drive. After a few calls I found Gillware and they were located only a few miles from me. They checked the hard drive and gave me an estimate and expectation of what could be recovered. Gillware exceeded my expectations for content recovered, pricing, and service. This company delivered more than promised. I highly recommend them!
Director of Operations at Compliant Pharmacy Alliance
I had tried other data recovery services with limited success when I discovered Gillware. My experience with them, by contrast, has been great. They have a very consumer-friendly business model and our success rate with recoveries has been outstanding.

Owner at NEPA Computer Consulting
I recently used Gillware for the second time for recovery of a seriously damaged drive. They do an excellent job on data recovery – thorough and fast, communicating clearly throughout the process, and their service is risk-free – you can review what they can recover and decide whether or not to proceed. A highly professional operation that I am happy to recommend.
President at Axios Foundation
Gillware did a fantastic job recovering data for a client of mine. This was a critical situation, and they did this in speedy fashion and kept me apprised of the progress throughout. Gillware was recommended to me by my computer consultants group. I would highly recommend them to anyone needed to recover data from a dead drive.
Owner at Linden-Ray
Dell recommended Gillware after my hard drive failed and they came through with flying colors. After the first evaluation didn’t result in recovery of all my data they worked several more days until they had recovered everything, all at the same quoted price.
Project Manager at Insulation Technologies
My client suffered a fire in their building and, as a result, damaged hard drives caused by the buildings sprinkler system. Gillware guaranteed their work: they charged no fee unless data could be restored, and charged no shipping cost for sending them the damaged drive. Throughout the restoration process they initiated progress updates and were transparent. My client received their critical data and is extremely happy to have all their QuickBooks information back in tact. A win for everyone.

I was told my hard-drive is literally dead, but Gillware successfully restore all the data out of it. Wonderful job, saving me months of work.
Research Associate at Mayo Clinic
I hate data loss. When customers come into TCR Solutions with hard drive failure my guts crawl. Some people cry. Some people blame themselves. Some people swim in recrimination. I wish I could help but I cannot bring a dead dog back to life. The folks at Gillware are definitely better at resurrection of data from a locked up drive than I am. They are also efficient and effective. I recommend them everytime as the next step when we cannot get the data ourselves.
Owner at TCR Solutions LLC
This was my first time using Gillware to recover data from a defective drive, and I am so relieved! Gillware was very responsive and was able to retrieve a large portion of data off of the ailing drive for us.
Systems Administrator at Syncsort
We have used Gillware on a couple of occasions now, once for a difficult recovery of VMs from a RAID 10 array and once on a single disk that had failed. Both instances they were able to get the data needed in a timely fashion. We have used other drive recovery vendors in the past, hint – the color red, before we learned of Gillware just down the street from us and have been very happy to discover them. Gillware does a superb job and at a much more competitive price than the competition.
Network Engineer at First Weber Group
My company was referred to Gillware Data Recovery when my PC hard drive died. Gillware was prompt in responding to my request, sending the shipping box, and returning all of my recovered files (huge relief). Also, we wouldn’t incur any expenses if they were unable to recover my data. We also were able to take a look at the document names/titles in an email to make sure that the recovered data was what we were looking for. Good service!
Administrative Office Manager at University of Rochester Medical Center
Never thought it would happen to me … but it did as I recently dealt with a complete and total hard drive crash on my laptop. After the initial panic, I was truly fortunate to have my path cross with the skilled team at Gillware. In short order, I had my recovered files back with virtually no loss of any of the years of data collected and stored. I wholeheartedly recommend the Gillware team for anyone in need of their services.

Culture and Integration Leader at GE
My story with Gillware thus far reads about the same as the other reviewers here. I have used other recovery outfits before, but I am going to be using Gillware’s services from now on. Gillware’s no-risk, reasonable cost (Finally!), and customer service makes Data Recovery with them an easy choice for the customer and I, the business owner. Gillware’s recovery services are an easy-sell to my customers and I am proud to offer them when needed. I really feel as if the search is over! Thank you.

I own an IT firm and send all of our clients to Gillware for any type of data recovery. Every client we have sent there has gotten a full recovery.

Owner at Blue Frog
I had a customer not too long ago who had a hard drive crash. I went to his house to diagnose it and we were in an obvious recovery situation. I told him about Gillware and his immediate response was “Oh, yes, you mentioned them once before when your business was just getting started. I used them and loved the results. It is one of the reasons I continue to use Friendly Computers,” So just by recommending Gillware I picked up a customer for life!
Owner at Friendly Computers
Gillware were able to quickly and accurately recover all the data from a 3 drive RAID 5 span resulting from a failed controller. Our client was pleased with the speed and relative ease of the recovery.
Senior Consultant at PC Specialists, Inc.
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.
Owner at PCMD Enterprises
I’ve worked with several of Gillwares engineers in past projects at the University of Wisconsin and I know firsthand how dedicated and intelligent they are. If I ever have a drive crash, I would immediately send it to Gillware for data recovery.

I’m so glad I shipped my customers drive to Gillware. Crucial data was recovered and my customer is happy – and has learned not to unplug their backup drive!
Owner at ConnectNC Inc.
I highly recommend Gillware’s recovery services. I have used them many times over the past three years, and they have saved my customers from major data loss. The staff at Gillware is very friendly, and they bend over backwards to help you. Their services are reasonably priced, and their turn around time is fast.
General Manager at ATS Tech Solutions
We had a home hard drive crash. Sent it to Gillware and they were able to recover everything on the drive. The service was very good. The contents of the drive were sentimental (family photos and videos). The cost was disclosed up front and you only pay if they recover what you want They provide a menu of items recovered prior to sending the data. All in all, I would recommend them for data recovery.
SVP at Wintrust Commercial Banking
Gillware Data Recovery was a life saver for us. After our laptop experienced the Hard Drive click of death, they were able to recover 99.9% of the past 9 months of our un-backup life. Their policy was worry free and very convenient to work with. A+ all the way. I wish I didn’t need them, but I was sure glad they were there when I did.
Technical Design Manager at TEAGUE
Gillware saved the day! I thought I had lost 5 years of files, every loan and grant application, photos, reports, etc. They were great about keeping me informed about the process of recovering my data and were able to recover nearly everything I’d lost. I hope to never go through data recovery again, but if I do, I’ll call Gillware.
Economic Development Representative at Kansas Department of Agriculture
Gillware bailed me out big-time when my laptop hard drive dumped and I lost all of my work and personal files. But they were able to recover all of the data that I needed. Excellent work!
