PITS is truly professional in data recovery. Six months ago, I dropped my 2 TB external hard drive, and it stopped showing up on my computer. It has been an awful experience for me, as whoever I ... approached, no one could recover the data from it. Thankfully, I found PITS Global, and they started the recovery process immediately. John and Eric were always in touch, providing updates regarding my case. In the final results, I had my verification session, and everything was there. I could see all of my photos, videos, and files. I am super grateful and happy with the results.

PITS Global Data Recovery Services lived up to their reputation. I entrusted them with recovering data from my damaged SanDisk USB drive, and they exceeded my expectations. They kept me informed about ... every step of the process, and I never felt in the dark about the status of my data. From the moment I contacted them to the final verification session, their focus on customer satisfaction was evident. Eric addressed all my concerns and went the extra mile. I got all my data back, and from now on, PITS is my go-to recommendation for anyone facing data loss challenges.

I had been searching for a data recovery company for a while and finally found PITS. With many positive reviews, I decided to choose them. My 5TB Hard Drive contained crucial business and governmental ... documents. After talking to PITS, I understood that this was the right place and they could recover all of my data. As expected, within only a few days, I was looking at documents that I couldn't access before through their verification session. They were fast, reliable, and, most importantly, got me all my data back

I was really worried when my external drive with important work files got messed up. I contacted PITS Global for help. Even though I had lots of files, John and the team understood how urgent it was. ... In just a few days, they showed me all my files, and I was shocked since they got everything back! Hundreds of my Excel, Word, and PowerPoint files were there and I could check each of the file during the verification session. Afterwards they transferred everything to a brand new 4TB external drive, so I can have an easy access to all of the data. Received the drive yesterday and am super happy with PITS. They did a fantastic job

I've been using my 1TB SD card since I started taking photos as a hobby. By now, I've collected over ten thousand photos of my journeys. Everything seemed fine with the card until my computer stopped ... recognizing it, which was weird because it was never an issue to begin with. In regards to that, I immediately sent it to PITS since they have successfully recovered my drives previously. Eric quickly opened a case for me, and we started the recovery process. Within a week, I got all my photos back, and I didn't expect anything less from them since these guys are the best in their field. Communication was on point, service was fast, and most importantly, I got all my data back
