Jeff B.Yoga Instructor
I brought my almost 10 year old broken external hard drive in after being told many years ago by 2 other data recovery companies that it could not be salvaged unless I wanted to pay upward of $1000. Within less than a week, Noel had recovered it all for a fraction of the previously quoted price from 10 years ago. So happy to have all of my old photos and videos from 200-2009 now recovered. Thanks Noel!

They were able to recover all 31GB on my data for a lot cheaper than the other places charged (trust me, I looked). I highly recommend them.

Noel is patient and honest. I recommend BYOD for data recovery solutions.
Alina Z.Wedding Photographer
I appreciate the work! I had problem with my flash drive. And I couldn't take files from it. It were really important pictures and videos. And thanks to BYOD computer services, I recovered the files. I'm happy! Pleasant communication and understanding of my problem and solution. Great!!
I really appreciate the honest, communicative service Noel provided me. My old 2010 MacBook stopped charging, and it turns out that living in Ktown means power surges will sometimes fry your devices! Baagh. Noel was able to order the hardware needed to recover files from my old laptop, recover most of my files, and transfer them onto my new laptop.
Jose M.Real Estate Attorney
Great company. My desktop could not reboot and we had files that we could not lose. BYOD came to the rescue. Within 24 hours BYOD was able to retrieve the documents and photos on the hard drive and reinstall the OS. Very prompt service at a price less than 1/2 others have quoted to do the same job.
David E.Music Producer
I wish I could give more that 5 stars. Noel is the best. So patient, kind, knowledgeable and professional. He really cares about what he does and goes above and beyond to take care of your data.
San C.Computer Animator
I like to think of Noel as 'The First Noel' because he responded to me first and also because he was my personal (computer) savior. He was very professional and trustworthy and he miraculously managed to recover all the data from my damaged hard drive. He was very generous with his time and spare hard drives and also offered to help me diagnose the repair for my laptop free-of-charge. I can't thank him enough, thank you Noel!
Duchess T.Cal State Professor
As others have already mentioned, Noel is really responsive. Not only responsive, he provides updates throughout the day and provides realistic outcomes. I really appreciated his transparency and the reality that I may not get my stuff back. With that said, he offered kind words and consoled me like a therapist. Best of all, he retrieved my data in 2 days. I think kindness and empathy go a long way and compared to his competitors, was the most human in his interactions. Thank you Noel, I hope I don't have to use your services again, but if I do, I know I'm in excellent hands!
Professoreric M.USC Professor
I had a family film that was on a hard drive, something that to me was irreplaceable. The drive suddenly died and I feared I'd lost my grandmother and grandfather's archived films from the 50's. I was devastated.Luckily Noel saved it and was very gracious about the entire process. Once he gave me back the data on my new drive, he waited until I confirmed that all was well before deleting the backup on his server. Professional, affordable, skilled, personable. Thats a winning combination!
Wendy C.Business Executive
We took him 2 company hard drives that crashed within days of each other. One was mine and had SO much information that I use every day, I was lost. Now I know that our system doesn't back up each computer, I am doing that from now on. He recovered everything on both hard drives! Thank you thank you.
Trevor P.Sports Videographer
TLDR version: Crisis averted, Noel is a hero. Best rate and service in town. Not only that, but the service was top notch. I learned a valuable lesson as well - all important data should be backed up. Thanks for everything Noel! I'll be back if I need computer services in the future.
Tina A.Special Ed Teacher
Noel did a superb job on my Macbook Pro. I knew I had a hard drive issue and I could not retrieve any of my data. He was very kind to accommodate my emergency and fixed it in 2 hours!!! I was so happy! He was also considerate of my budget! I've dealt with other companies but I will go to him from now on. Overall, excellent on customer service, work and price!! I would HIGHLY recommend him and no other!
Jay L.Chemical Engineer
Has your hard drive failed and need to recover your precious data? Look no further than BOYD! Call and talk to Noel about your needs. Took my hard drive to a competitor in La Habra and was told the data could be recovered in raw format. If that wasn't bad enough, the quote for the service was outrageous. I contacted Noel and offered to look at it no charge. He indicated if the data is recoverable, he would let me know. Noel called the next day to tell me he recovered the data in its original format! I went down took a look at what he recovered prior to transferring the data and paying for the service. His prices are extremely reasonable for his service. I live in Irvine and the trip to L.A. was totally worth the drive. Thank you BOYD for recovering the data, especially all the irreplaceable family photos!
Margaret L.PhD Grad Student
My boss' computer stopped working and he thought all his data was gone (he is not one to backup his data). He's a professor and hours of power point presentations for all his classes were part of that data. I was lucky I discovered BYOD! Not only was he able to retrieve all the data, I was able to get it the next day. His prices are very reasonable and he said if he was not able to do it I would owe nothing. He is very knowledgeable, kind, and fair. I highly recommend BYOD for the best tech support.
Nathan K.Apple Employee
Noel at BYOD, was incredibly helpful and insightful with my data loss situation. He gave me some options and tried various tactics to restore some hard drives that had been surged with electricity due to a power outage... he was honest and upfront with a very fair price. Highly recommend Noel BYOD!!
Jay P.Graphic Designer
Like a total idiot, I dropped my laptop on the ground and bent the flashdrive that was connected to it. All of my files for school were on that drive (with no backups saved anywhere) and because the flashdrive was bent, I couldn't get any computer to read it (I tried on at least 5). After a quick search, I found BYOD and THANK GOD I did. I brought the drive into Noel who worked his magic and recovered all my files within 24 hours. Because of Noel, I won't fail my classes (or, at least, I'll only be able to blame myself if I do).
Kw K.UCLA Student
My sony vaio hard drive went bad and along with it were all my files from my school. I brought it to another computer placr and they told me that the files could not be recovered at all. So i searched some more on yelp and found BYOD and called in for an appointment. The technician gave me a very reasonable quote for data recovery and very next day he was able to return my trusted sony with most of my files intact. Great technical service with very reasonable price. Thank you for saving my files and i will highly recommend you to all my classmates at my school.
Grace C.USC Student
My laptop broke in the middle of finals week, and Noel helped me recover my data and told me that he would keep my data for one month. He was a nice, professional, and considerate guy who gave me a discount after knowing that I am still a student at USC. He told me that he only charges half of what other guys out there are charging for data recovery services. I went on Yelp and Google and searched for data recovery services and found out that other guys are charging $300 or even more.
Had a external HDD crash with a lot of very important family pics. Brought it from Tokyo to LA on a biz trip and Noel was able to work his magic to fully recover the files I needed. Can't say enough good things about Noel -- his expertise, professionalism, patience -- he's just a cool dude that's very good at what he does.
Xunan S.USC Student
I got my data back! Finally! I asked for so many places about the surface pro 3 data recovery, this is the only one help me get it. Thank you so much! I am a USC student and it is nice to find a great computer repair place!
Had a system failure with my external HD and every other company was charging $400.00+ other cheaper options required meeting at someone's apartment and an overall situation I was reluctant about. But BYOD computer services is located in a nice office building and as soon as I met Noel, I felt at ease. The process was so easy and quick, he had my hard drive available within 2 days and all my data was recovered for $149.00. Really glad I found this place, will be coming back here if I have issues with anything else.
I had lost all my data on my external hard drive. BYOD was able to recover all of it! He even lent me his personal drive for me to use during the fix. I highly recommend Boyd and will be back to use his services.
Bingran C.USC Student
Noel is super helpful with retrieving data from my macbook pro. He worked extra hours to get out my most important folders in two hours (We are talking a lot of GBs). He is very efficient and patient. This store is in a nice building in Ktown, easy to find, plenty street parking space, close to USC.
Rosalina A.Real Estate Agent
After the hard drive on my MacBook Pro crashed, I frantically searched for data recovery service that wouldn't charge me an arm and a leg. I'm SO GLAD I found BYOD Computer Services. Noel quoted me $149, but said it would be free if he wasn't able to recover any data. Within a few hours of leaving my laptop, I got a call from Noel saying that he was able to recover everything. How incredible!
Kathy A.UCLA Teacher
Spilled some tea on my Macbook Pro and the computer just froze and wouldn't turn on at all. Its only now that I realized that I have thousands of photos and videos from way back and I had no back up plan. Took it to the apple store and they couldn't do anything. Took it to two other Mac places in Hollywood. Nothing. Searched some more on Yelp and found BYOD. The guy Noel gave me a quote and told me to wait for his call. The next day I get the call and got the best news for Thanksgiving ! All my photos, videos and documents all intact. What three other places couldn't do, this guy did it ! Thank you you're a lifesaver !!
Gaurav S.USC MBA Student
I dropped my laptop 2 days before an important exam. A friend suggested Noel's BYOD Computer Services. Noel was a big help. He navigated me on the phone to his office building. My laptop's hard-disk was damaged. Noel was able to recover most of the data, install a new hard-disk and reinstalled a new Windows 10. He even installed a 1 TB hard-disk even though my earlier was 500 GB for no extra cost. Noel is very popular among USC and UCLA students. Highly recommended for any mobile/computer repairs!!!
Ralph H.Music Producer
noel is a genius, he saved my life as far as recovering 12 years of valuable musical compositions that was locked on my "going bad" seagate drive.. within a fast turn around period of about 48 hrs., joel had all my files recovered and backup on the new drive... he's amazing!!
Lisa H.USC Student
I am a student of USC and had a broken macbook pro. Noel was super helpful and fix my screen for much less time than apple store. So he was the first to go to when I dropped my phone in the water. I can not believe that he was able to RECOVER DATA and photo are on phone. SUPER QUICK, SUPER HELPFUL.
