To be honest, I am super happy and satisfied with the delivered service by PITS Global. I have met so many people and read reviews of many others with their amazing experience at PITS. Firstly, I had ... a nice chat with my account manager, John, before shipping them the device. He even sent me a prepaid shipping label for my 4TB WD blue HDD)) Happy to say, I shipped then the device very next day and waited for ny evaluation results. So after 3 days, they sent me an email with the quote and a whole explanation of my hdd’s problem, so I can have a better understanding of their service. The pricing was fair and I decided to move with the standard procedure. Fast forward, after couple days, I got a call from Filip for the verification session. The final results were not what I expected because PITS could get ALL of my data without a missing file. These folks are the real professionals in their field and I am super blessed that I had a chance to work with them. High five for excellent results!)

I have been using my brother's 2TB WD HDD for a while but last month when It was connected to my laptop, we had a power surge which affected the device. I knew that he will be furious if he finds out, ... so I needed to move quick. A whilee ago, I already had a talk with PITS but never used them, so I believe this was the time. I explained them the situation, shipped the device, approved the recovery process and just waited, just waited.....But thankfully within only few days, Filip called me that they recovered everything, so it's time for a verification session. I jumped on my computer, had to see all of the files like nothing happened to the drive and approved the same second. Thanks to PITS, my brother never found out, so I am incredibly thankful for the job they have done

During a routine system update, our office’s 24TB RAID 6 array with operational data experienced a catastrophic failure. Thankfully, PITS Global Data Recovery in Los Angeles was recommended by a ... fellow technician. We had a good talk with Eric and moved forward to the recovery process after receiving our evaluation results. I personally was in constant in touch with them because of my stressful situation but they were incredibly professional and never let me down during any of our calls. I am putting 5 stars for their communication and another 5 stars for the successful recovery of the data. Losing this data could have definitely disrupted our tech startup's operations for months
