Tech Support Specialist: Michael, Computer Software Engineer replied 20 days ago

I wish I could but that can only be done when ur computer boots. I'm going to look for an alternative and if I do. It could take up to 45 minutes to fix ur computer. Since this is much longer than usual and i can help multiple people in the same time. To do that cost an additional $45. would you like to proceed, considering that this is a catastrophic crash. you may have lost all that u had in there.

Oh shit, ok,no I won’t proceed I might take it somewhere local thanks for your time
Tech Support Specialist: Michael, Computer Software Engineer replied 20 days ago

I actually am specialist in data recovery. It is going to cost you over $700 is your hard drive is actually crashed. It requires a specific kind of skill that not many people have and they could damage the hard disk in a way that make it impossible to recover any data. I think i gave a deal that you won't be able to find anyway. but, it's absolutely your choice I only provide information. Plus remote access will cost over $40 anyway. Let me know and I wish you much success.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
what you are saying I need to pay you $700 to fix it
Tech Support Specialist: Michael, Computer Software Engineer replied 20 days ago

No. Not at all. Data recovery is a time consuming and very delicate operation. if you take your computer to get it fixed if they can fix it and you are dealing with knowledgeable and experience staff depending on the amount of data you want retrieved it will cost you minimum $700. When I was working for another company we paid $3000 and that was the best deal. If you come to me outside That's what I would have charged. Keep in mind that I still may have to tell you that if u need ur data back you have to go to a local specialist. I am betting right now I might be able to fix ur drive temporatili, long enough for you to get a back up. but ur drive is dead or will be soon and u r going to have to replace it very soon.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Michael, Computer Software Engineer replied 20 days ago

I may not be able to fix ur drive in which case you get refunded and you have to seek a local data retrieval specialist.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
Ok and that will cost me an extra $45 but if you can’t remotely access my computer how do we do this?
Tech Support Specialist: Michael, Computer Software Engineer replied 20 days ago

I will instruct you what to do. If we could not succeed to do it remotely then I refund you and ask u to go to a local specialist. May I ask how much you have already paid?

that's right. there is also an option for the bonus. Vicki, I don't want to be rude but I think you don't feel comfortable doing this. I understand completely. I am thinking maybe to put your mind at ease ask you to search locally and it could cost you less than $45. anyway if you don't feel good about this I think we should stop right here. especially that it may not even work. I have to leave for about 10 to 15 minutes now. There is absolutely no hard feelings on my side. I understand what you might be thinking. It's just fine. If we did not talk Good night and good luck.

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
