Editorial review from Citysearch 8/27/2012

Flashback Data saved our company. When you have a server that crashes and you have 14 years of data stored in a single .dat file you tend to panic, particularly when you also find out the backup you thought was happening everyday behind the scenes, was turned off. First mistake? We panicked and we made poor decisions that ultimately cost us time and money. Had we gone to Flashback Data to begin with we would have been back in business quickly. Instead we opted to go with a different local company or should I say a guy who apparently works out of his home with a virtual office front. Had we stayed with him it would have cost us thousands, one because he didn't have the technology to analyze and recover our data from a SAS Raid 5 drive configuration and two he knew we were desperate. Lots of things happened and I'll spare you the details, bottom line we got our drives back, no recovery and out a whopping chunk of change, but not the thousands. Fashback Data was referred to us by our awesome local computer place VicomPC, see their review. Flashback Data was miles above in every way compared to the other company. They actually have an office, they are extremely professional, knowledgeable, reasonable, fast, communicative. After dealing with a guy who was definitely playing us for thousands, dealing with Flashback Data was like a breath of fresh air. Within 2 days we got an analysis of our situation and a full recovery, including the .dat file with 14 years of data that our software company was able to integrate back into the system. We are back in business today because Flashback Data had the technology and the know how to get the job done. Don't make rash decisions like we did, it was a hard lesson learned, we are just so thankful that we found Flashback Data, they are definitely the experts in town. more

Great service and value. Lifesavers! 1/18/2012

Downloaded new drivers onto my work laptop and voil?, the blue screen of death appears! My company said send it to them and they'd repair it but would not guarantee that my personal data would be there when I got it back. I had one company try to recover it all and they were unsuccessful. Then I called Flashback on a friends recommendation. Jessica and Eric were really great to deal with and kept me in the loop throughout the very quick process. Their service was worth every penny to recover what I thought was gone forever. Thanks Flashback! more

Total Data Wizards 10/5/2011

After 30 years as a system administrator I can say these folks are professionals. My server builders in San Antonio told me to take the drive to Flashback in Austin. I am so glad I did. These people did treat me very well.They solved my catastrophic hdd data loss by recovering it quickly, at a good price. more

Saved the day! 9/19/2011

Last week, we awoke to the dreaded blue screen on our work laptop. Being self-employed in the current economy, we were instantly in a panic to fix the problem as soon as possible. I ran to Geek Squad at Best Buy & waited for them to open in order to try to recover the much-needed time sensitive data. We were devastated to hear their diagnosis: nothing can be done -- hard drive failure. They said our only option would be to mail the hard drive to their off-site office for further inspection with a minimum turnaround of 5-7 days. This was not an option for us as we needed the data immediately! And he even said, most people who pay to send it off don't get anything back anyway. I was turned away with more

FLASHBACK DATA can do it !!!! 10/15/2010

Techno-idiotically I ""formatted"" ( as in deleted ! ) all my photos on my digital camera of Lady Gaga in Big D and NYC Art Deco 5-hour tour w/Fred Cookingham ... broken-hearted , I finally found Flashback Data . Several other places in Austin told me ""it can't be retrieved"" . BUT the clever folks at Flashback not only retrieved them from my digital camera memory card , but also installed them on my computer . I would have paid a thousand dollars .... but they charged so much LESS ! They are all friendly , helpful , and ""you are special"" , no matter if your pics of Gaga or Grandma . Totally great place ! more

Fantastic service from Flashback Data 8/18/2009

My backup hard drive crashed. Before, during and after I sent the drive, FD was efficient and polite. They were able to assess the damage quickly and get my files on the way to me pretty fast. Pros: Great communication and fast service. Cons: Price, but worth it if your data is. more

Great Place for Data Recovery 6/11/2009

recovering data is an expensive process so I do not really know if the cost can be improved upon. Flashback Data was great to work with. I have no legitimate complaints. Pros: great customer service, prompt service Cons: cost more

Live Saver 6/9/2009

Flashback Data is a very professional operation. What drew me to this company initially was the professional webpage, which provided enough detailed information on their service. Next was the actual meeting of their staff, which they were all friendly and professional. The service was superb and less costly then comparable companies. Their contract was straight forward without a lot of small clauses. And the best thing about their service is that if the data can't be recovered, then the evaluation is FREE! Plus you can track their work through their online status report -- Now that's customer service for you. I'll definitely spread the word about FLASHBACK DATA. Thanks guys. Pros: Courteous, Friendly, Professional, Good Price Cons: N/A more

Very Professional 4/10/2009

I am pregnant with twins and started a baby journal the day we found out. Our dog knocked my computer off the counter and broke the flash drive. We took it to another company in Austin that was TERRIBLE!! In fact, they took apart the drive without consent from us. We picked it up from them and the next day took it to Flashback Data. Within a week we had all our data back (including the baby journal) for a fair price. Each person I spoke to was polite and encouraging. They have an online tool where you can track your restoration which helped me know what was going on. I highly recommend this place! Pros: Knowledgeable & Speedy Cons: In South Austin (we live in Round Rock) more

Data recovery 3/30/2009

Very responsive by email and phone. Did what they promised and helped me recover valuable data from a disk that my local support people couldn't provide. Definitely recommend them. Pros: fast turnaround time and first class service Cons: I haven't found any yet more

Very Competent, Great Service 3/3/2009

I needed to recover data (iphoto, itunes and some miscellaneous doc files) from my iMac Hard Drive that would not boot. I inquired various places for price. These guys were courteous and very competitive. In my case, damage was related to sector problems. They completed the task at the lower end of the estimates and a quick turn around. I would strongly recommend them for any data recovery work. Pros: Competent, Priced competively Cons: none in my case more

Best Data Service in Austin 12/27/2008

I was hesitant to use a company to restore years worth of photos and documents, especially with fraud & cyber threats out there. But Flashback data provided the safe environment that I knew I could trust. They were informative as to what was going on with my computer, which is great to know. They brought back the data SUPER QUICK and was very professional and friendly. I would recommend them to any one and everyone who wants dependable and reliable service. Pros: Friendliness, Trustworthy, Dependable, Expedient more

Great Customer Service 11/10/2008

I went to Flashback Data after accidently doing a system recovery (instead of a system restore, duh) and the folks there were able to recover all the pictures and videos of my kids. Thanks to them my wife has suspended my death sentence! Nice folks and great communication. more

Outstanding personal service 4/19/2007

What a great experience. My daughter's computer in Honduras crashed with many of our grandchildrens pictures and her business documents. The Laptop Specialist, BJ Associates in San Antonio (great service also) replaced the hp1000 hardrive with a Toshiba and recommended Flashback data in Austin to recover her pictures and the hp 1000 hardrive. One telephone call to them and Shawn Prytula took care of everything including having BJ Associates ship her hardrive to them for recovery. The expedient recovery of our daughters data enable us return her computer to Honduras at a 100% recovery on our previously scheduled trip to Honduras. Pros: Painless, fast and successful service more

Best data recovery company in town 4/18/2007

Flashback Data saved my life!! These guys know what they are doing. I had thousands of pictures of my children as well as all of my financial information on my computer and one day it just died. I heard a loud clicking from my computer and every computer shop that I went to said there was probably nothing I could do. That is, until I found these guys. They were quick, friendly and affordable. I now have my data restored and a great backup solution, thanks to Flashback Data. If you need data recovery, don't take your computer anywhere else. Pros: Customer Service more
