“I had to take my computer in last week as it was just not working and that dreaded blue screen had come up. I walked up the street to Toronto Computer Shop. The technician told me I may or may not lose all the info on my hard drive. He had to get in and look first. I don’t know what magic he wielded but even though my hard drive was totally messed, he was able to retrieve all the important info for me. He was kind, informative and massively helpful. Much as I hope my computer never needs a new hard drive again, if it does, I will be running back to them. Thanks very much.” Rachel
