  • 5 star review  Thank you to Nicolas and the team, for rebuilding our hard drive for us, leading to the recovery of some very precious family memories and moments - that couldn't be recreated if we tried (ie: first steps, learning to ride a bike, and moments with my beautiful mum). With that, my family and I unreservedly recommend Computer Forensics NZ Ltd, whose customer service and technical capability are �. If you're in a situation like ours, make contact! The technical jargon is kept to a minimum, the recovery service is quick, and the price - when compared to what is otherwise lost - is well worth it. Can't thank, and/or recommend, this team enough.

    5 star review  These magicians saved every photo I had ever taken when my hard drive died. Was worth every penny to have our family's memories restored. Very grateful to them and the person who recommended them to me. Was also grateful for all the advice they happily provided.

    5 star review  We used Computer Forensics NZ (CF NZ) after our Laptop spat the dummy and we lost everything. After sending it to another company to get fixed we got it back reset to the factory settings. We were hugely disappointed as we had lost thousands of photos and hours of footage not to mention important documents we had saved. After requesting our C Drive to be returned from the aforementioned company, (they had told us it was useless) we sent it out to CF ZN where they preformed some sort of miracle and returned to us a hard drive loaded with EVERYTHING!! we had lost. I could not thank them enough which is why I am only too happy to write this review, what they did was amazing and I am so glad I made contact with them after I thought all was lost! I have and would again recommend them to anyone in a similar situation.

  • 5 star review  Computer Forensics are fabulous! Any nurse will agree with me that their 3 yearly portfolio at expert level is a nightmare to complete with a ridiculous amount of work and heart ache involved. To lose it off a USB just before submission was horrendous! A friend suggested these guys - 6 working days turned into less than 2 - and I’ve been smiling ever since! Never say never ....lessons learned. Highly recommended, great service and communication.

    5 star review  I had some invaluable film footage disapear and thought it was gone forever. Nicolas and the team at Computer Forensics not only recovered all my precious footage, they did it for a very reasonable cost. I was also fully informed of the progress right throughout the recovery. I have no reservations about recomending them to anyone who is unfortunate enough to find themselves in the same situation that I was in.

    5 star review  It is a long time since I have experienced such excellent customer service , Nicolas has been a pleasure to do business with despite the crappy circumstances. I lost 20+ years of files after a HDD crash and a corrupt back up !! Despite the frustrations and ongoing problems, eventually Computer Forensics won out and retrieved every file - I lost nothing. How good is that. . . . . . .

  • positive review  I highly recommend Nicholas and the team at #ComputerForensics. In fact, no words can describe the extremely professional manner in which they relate and communicate with clients in a timely and professional manner keeping them up to date with progress and the chances of #recoveringfiles from computers and external hard drives. I first used #ComputerForensicNZ back in 2012 to attempt to recover 2 Tb extremely important business files off an external hard drive. With much perseverance, patience and skill, they recovered 99.999% of the lost data, which saved our business. Again in 2016 I sort their help with recovering crucial evidence of computers and hard drives for a Court battle. In 2019, for a long-running High Court battle, they have once again come to the rescue with recovering over 25,000 emails and documents and data files of approx 34Gb off computers. Whether you are stressing out over loosing your favorite family photos, or pivotal evidence for Court battles, get in touch with Computer Forensics.... If your #computerharddrive hasn't been smashed to smithereens with a big hammer, chances are Nicholas and his team to save your day... If not rest assured they would have tried their hardest.

    positive review  I approached Nicholas from Computer forensics with a my broken external hard drive. To make matters worse I had taken it to another 'Data recovery' company first and they had attempted unsuccessfully to extract my lost data. My drive way to me without the external caddy and i was charged an inspection/ appraisal fee. Thank you Nicholas and your team. You reinstated my faith in your industry with your professionalism, communication and your understanding of a clients concerns. My data was fully recovered. I only wish i came to Computer Forensics first. Cheers!

    5 star review  A HUGE thank you to the team at Computer Forensics. Without them I would no longer have a business. I was unfortunate enough to have Amazon lose my date (how unusual) and two days later my backup crashed. Computer Forensics came to the rescue with a complete restoration of all of my data. Thanks so much Guys! Forever Grateful.

  • positive review  Both my computer and external hard drive managed to fail at the same time and I lost 4 years worth of photos and documents. 4 years may not sound like a lot but it has been a very busy time with traveling and family. Nicolas and the team were incredibly professional, thoughtful (you need to be in this situation), helpful and detail-orientated (right down to the files in the folders). I was lucky enough to have a 99% recovery of my files and I can now confirm it is all there. I am truly grateful to the team at Computer Forensics. Would not hesitate to recommend their services!

    5 star review  I would like to say a huge thank you to Computer Forensics for saving my life. I had a whole lot of really important data on multiple drives that just decided to disappear. I went into panic mode to try to recover the data. One specialist after the other couldn't help until I was finally told by the experts that it couldn't be done, and I shouldn't bother even looking further in the Southern Hemisphere, as there was nobody that could recover the the complex nature of my data corruption. In a final attempt at hope I tried Computer Forensics. From day one they reassured me about the process and held my hand as they went about their business. After a few days I was told that there was hope and before long(actually it seemed like eternity) I was given the good news, well great news, all my files were recovered... 100%... it was amazing, nobody else could do it!!! So thanks again to the team, very much appreciated, keep up the great work and hopefully we will never have to meet again! 🙂 I would wholeheartedly recommend these guys!

  • 5 star review  I used Computer Forensics when my laptop broke down and was told by two other computer companies that ALL my data/files/photos etc were irretrievable - Nicholas that I dealt with there was fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful and even better, they managed to retrieve just about everything! highly recommended!

    5 star review  Absolute life savers! Computer Forensics were able to recover all of our personal data from an iMac HDD which another company had advised us was unrecoverable. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

    positive review  Nicholas and the team at Computer Forensics NZ Ltd are absolute lifesavers! My laptop got water damaged and another company in Newmarket had a look and said that there was nothing they could. I got a second opinion from Computer Forensics and they managed to get ALL the data off my laptop! Thanks so much guys and I just wish I had come to you first. Highly recommend!
