Great value, super fast, top quality expert technicians - mac repair and data recovery in Santa Rosa for at least 15 years! Mac Repair Santa Rosa has been our family apple computer repair service in Healdsburg, since I was a kid. When my little brother spilled juice on my dad's macbook pro, Apple referred him to Mac Repair Santa Rosa, even though it was still under warranty (juice spills aren't covered under Apple's warranty, it turns out). Mac Repair fixed it and saved my little brother's hide (so to speak ;). When I took my still under warranty mac to the apple store, they sent me right back to mac repair to recover the videos that disappeared from my hard drive. Apple doesn't do data recovery and that isn't covered under the warranty either! Mac repair santa rosa saved my original videos, installed a larger hard drive to accomodate my video work, and set up an automated back up system, so I won't risk losing my someday to be academy award winning photography and videography. When the memory card failed on my Mom's camera during a family trip to Spain, mac repair santa rosa recovered over 1000 photos from the trip! They set up the wireless network at my parents ranch so we had internet access in the house, studio and stables. I don't know if we're just unlucky with macs, but I think the whole fam has mac repair santa rosa on quick dial. They're always there when we need them for anything apple computer repair store related!

World Class Mac Repair - Patience of Job, Skill of . . . well the most skillful & knowledgeable tech imaginable. Never had a mac problem he couldn't repair or an Apple question he couldn't answer - and answer in a way that I could comprehend. Tam & all his techs there seem to live and breathe Apple - but manage to be all around nice & well informed guys.

My brand new Macbook Pro keyboard was waterlogged when my toddler niece spilled a full mug directly into it! Expected the damage to be beyond repair. My friend works at the Apple Store and he told me the liquid spill would void the three year Apple warranty I'd purchased, but recommended I take it to Mac Repair and Service near the Santa Rosa Apple Store for a less costly repair. Mac Repair and Service was calm, confident and awesome. I needed the data for a project due that day (OMG!) & they were able to email the needed files to me within an hour of drop off - and I met the deadline. I had my whole macbook back, purring, good as new in about a day and a half!!!!

Fabulous one on one Apple Mac training in a serene & quiet space, with a super knowledgeable teacher who tailors the session precisely to your interests, needs & abilities. What more could you ask for? I find mac tutoring sessions at MacAdvantage to be the fastest & by far the most pleasant way to learn new software. They have expertise not only in the mac operating system, but in many 3rd party software programs as well - like photoshop, illustrator and microsoft office.

Tam at Mac Repair never ceases to amaze us with his generous customer service and the unparalleled value of his support. When a hard drive I'd had replaced nearly two years ago began faltering - I brought it in for replacement under warranty. He had only larger hard drives in stock & replaced it immediately with the larger hard drive at no cost to me! I'm here now, just waiting for updates and wanted to appreciate him out loud and on line! (Two years ago - Tam did data recovery when the original hard drive that came with my computer failed. He recovered all my photos, videos, music, financial records, email, documents for around $300 in a day or two! He also got me set up with an automated backup so I'll never risk losing data again.) He's also repaired two of my family members' macbooks after liquid spills - one had a cup of coffee spilled & wouldn't boot up at all. It was fully repaired & works like new - for less than $400 (half of Apple's quote)!

Data Recovery Santa Rosa - MacBook DATA Recovery: GREAT VALUE & Super FAST Service & Exceptionally Professional & Kind Customer Service!! I am at the MacAdvantage now - having just picked up my hard drive full of irreplaceable photos & videos, financial and other business records, original music and everything else! I don't even want to leave without having expressed my tremendous appreciation (and jubilation!) - by way of recommending Mac Advantage Data Recovery Service online. The experience has been outstanding from the initial frantic phone call I placed - in which a calm & empathetic real live person answered by the 2nd ring - to how efficiently she recorded the details & instantly relayed them to the technician I spoke with. When I arrived at the shop - check in was fast & professional - all the information I'd relayed to the tech & receptionist was already listed on the contact card that had been set up for me - so I didn't have to repeat everything. A perfect experience!

Bravo! Mac Advantage is the Cream of the Crop. Soon after opening during a repair at the Apple Store in the mall, all my data was lost. the Genius referred me to Tam at the Mac Advantage who recovered all my data, set up automated back up online & to an external hard drive - and I've never looked back. Tam exudes a tranquility & integrity. I trust him 100%. I appreciate that he never tries to sell me something I don't need. You can't help but feel calm walking in to the place. Parking is just outside the door. They carry in your equipment if you ask.

Extraordinary Value - including Free Diagnosis and very speedy repair. I'm impressed by the consistently excellent service and attention to detail I receive each time. I've dealt with 6 or 7 different MacAdvantage team members and each person who's answered the phone or checked my computer in or out has been efficient, respectful, knowledgeable, friendly & helpful.

Having been a professional photographer for three decades, there's no way to excuse my having not backed up a full day shoot (with out of pocket expenses around $33,000 in time/travel/assistants/equip.) But, I found myself in a pickle when my HD crashed. With no way to recreate the shoot, an associate recommended MacAdvantage. Miraculously, my entire shoot was recovered in less than 48 hours and at a third the price quoted by data recovery services in Marin & Fla which estimated a week turnaround (and much more $$ for two day service!!!). My client never even knew there was a problem. Don't tell MacAdvantage, but I'd have paid triple for the fast, local, courteous service I received! Kudos to the whole crew there - from calm speaking receptionist, to the reassuring counter checkin person and the amazing tech who saved my . . . reputation. They also set me up with a three level backup system, so I'll never be in that career crushing predicament again! I'll be singing praises for this fine company ad infinitum. As a bonus, one of the techs has an extensive photography background.

I have used the folks at MacAdvantage for about a year - from dealing with the coffee I poured on my keyboard to a crashed hard drive to better sound for itunes. They are wonderful - very knowledgeable and very patient for dealing with a computer doofuss like me. They had opportunities to charge me for stuff they did not take - they really try and give their customers what they need.

The Apple Store referred me to Mac Advantage when my hard drive failed and the genius at the Apple store couldn't access or recover my data. Within 48 hours the tech at the Mac Advantage had recovered ALL my data - music, photos, email, artwork and financial records and set me up with an automated back up so that I won't ever risk losing data again. Fast & Affordable. Excellent service from initial contact (they answer the phone!) to check in & quick turnaround. Bravo! Call to verify address. They were moving to a new location!

Within 12 hours of drop off with Tam all my data was recovered & restored. (This was after being told it was unrecoverable by techs at the biggest nationally known computer tech squad. The geeks had been unable to recover any of my data and still charged a fee!) How I found Tam was this: I mentioned the data loss to a financial officer (whom I also consider a friend) at my credit union. He highly recommended Tam for Data Recovery. The bank officer told me Tam had set up the whole computer network at the credit union, including an automated backup system. Truly World Class Data Recovery Service.

After hours and hours on the phone with Comcast and Apple over several weeks, and after having another company send a tech out who spent several hours trying to figure out the problem, we still had intermittent internet connection. A client recommended Tam at the Mac Advantage Apple Store - and within a few minutes of his arrival - the problem was solved never to return.

When I bought my Mac Pro at the Apple Store, I paid to have an extra 4GB RAM installed at the time of purchase. About 13 months later, one of the RAM chips went bad and I was surprised to find out my RAM purchased through Apple only had the same 1 YR warranty as my Mac Pro - and not a lifetime warranty as I expected. So I had to pay for a new RAM chip. A month later, I had Mac Advantage add four more chips of RAM and it was about half the price, came with a LIFETIME warranty and the RAM was identical to the 1 YR warranty Apple RAM! (same manufacturer/type) Besides, they're a local business and just great to work with.

Words can't convey the gratitude we feel for the exceptional skill of the data recovery specialist at Mac Advantage Apple Computer Repair & Data Recovery. When our server hard drive crashed & our company's IT guy came to restore our data from our backup drive - he found our data hadn't been backing up for 6 months - and what was backed up was a scrambled mess. After two days of trying to restore our data, he gave up and called in a local data recovery company. After several more days with no success and a $300 invoice despite their failure, the data recovery company who was windows/pc oriented referred us to Mac Advantage Apple Computer Repair. They are Apple Computer specialists who specialize in Macintosh Data Recovery. Within a few hours of dropping off our hard drive, the Mac Advantage tech called to say they'd recovered all our data! Three techs tried - they succeeded. I like that they are confident enough in their abilities that they only invoice if they are successful - unlike others, there is no charge for a failed attempt.
