"I have successfully recovered the file using EaseUS with the superb good talent and expert customer team (Jesse) assistance. I truly appreciated EaseUS help and efforts in taking the trouble to look into my faulty disk issue. Thank You."

"Amazing...I had all my files - with years' worth of information - and Vasilli recovered the files and REPAIRED the drive! I began using the product on a Mac, but the files, while recovered, were all over the place under different names. It would have taken me forever (literally) to get it organized again. I contacted Support, and they recommended setting up a remote session on a Windows computer. I took the company up on their offer, and my Thumb Drive was repaired, and it looks like all the files have been recovered! This is hard to believe! I cannot give this company a higher rating. Thank you!"
