  • Honestly couldn't recommend Tecleo more! They managed to recover vital data off our hard drive after another data recovery specialist couldn't. They were professional and made every effort to get the job done. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing data restored.
  • Very helpful and understanding staff. Over delivering on what was promised in record time. At a very reasonable price. Definitely worth contacting them with any data recovery problems.
  • Tecleo managed to clone my dying hard drive to a new drive, and they retained my operating system and all my programs and data. So I just booted up and carried on where I left off, with everything in tact. And all this, at a price I could actually afford, as an individual. I was extremely grateful and relieved. Thank you Martin, and the rest of the team! I found these people to be skilled, professional, friendly and helpful. I was very happy with the service I received, and would definitely recommend them.
  • Note that data recovery for an individual is typically a very costly procedure. I received quotes from several service providers, and Tecleo was still the cheapest option. Remarkably, Tecleo was the only company capable of successfully retrieving my data from a crashed SSD hard drive after others had multiple failed attempts. Their team of skilled technicians demonstrated exceptional expertise, and their service quality generally is truly commendable.
  • The Team at Tecleo went the extra mile to recover my data in a professional and efficient manner, keeping me updated throughout the process. What a pleasure to have such good service! I would gladly recommend them. Thank you, Martin, Heinrich, and the rest of the Team for saving my data!
