Most Bestbuys do data retrieval, as do most smaller local shops. A smaller shop will treat you better and have a much better price. Bestbuy is darned expensive.

Unable to read data on drive


Hi Franoisebis,

I can help you with that, you will need a data recovery pro to attempt to retrieve your data. Unfortunately Geek Squad really isn't equipped to do that. If you reply with your Country, State and City I will direct you to an appropriate Pro nearest your location.

Toshiba satellite is having issues


First thing to do is stop booting up the computer. This message means the Hard Disk Drive (HDD or "C Drive") has errors. Errors can mean disk corruption including bad sectors and/or physically damaged hardware inside the disk drive.
Since you are able to log into the computer, if even briefly, perhaps the HDD is what I like to call "fail-ING"; there may be hope of retrieving some of your data (pictures, etc). Ask your local Geek Squad Agent help you - if damage is severe, this is not necessarily something you can fix yourself (e.g. "fail-ED" HDD).
Remember, I said not to keep booting the computer - the more times you boot a "fail-ING" drive the less likely you will retrieve anything. If you insist, however, on a DIY method - you could learn more about the following:
1. New HDD installed
2. HDD Enclosure (USB)
3. Acronis Software
4. A nice drink and a couple of hours to clone the old HDD

OR 1. Geek Squad Agent
2. Credit Card/Checkbook

HINT: if you talk to a Geek Squad Agent and s/he can't explain Acronis software, find an Agent who can...

Noisy Hard Drive


Hey nerjake,

If you are in need of service on your computer, you may always bring it into your local Best Buy™ store location for service and repairs. Geek Squad® agents should be able to provide you with assistance under the manufacturer's warranty, as long as you are able to provide proof of purchase. Typically, a copy of your original receipt or Best Buy Performance Service Plan information is all that's needed in order to verify your warranty coverage.

You may wish to back up any important files you need prior to bringing the unit into your local store however, as software and data recovery work is typically not included in most manufacturer's coverage. Geek Squad® agents can always provide you with this service if necessary, but please remember that operating system and data backup services are an additional charge.

Additionally, the type of noise your hard drive is making can often be an indicator of how quickly you should seek assistance. Any kind of grinding or clicking noises made by the hard drive can often be signs of a serious problem, which may require the hard drive to be replaced.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Memory transfer


You have several ways:

Pc transfer cable: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8136956&st=vista+transfer+cable&lp=2&type=product&cp=1&id=1158323064562

USB Flash Drive: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8281352&st=sandisk+flash+drive&type=product&id=1171672069828

External HDD: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8744727&st=external+hard+drive&lp=3&type=product&cp=1&id=1202648989640

The transfer cable is usually used when you buy a new computer and you just need to transfer a bunch of data from one computer to the next. It comes with simple software to easily transfer your data.

The USB Flash Drive is used when you only have a small amount of data to transfer. A lot of people use it as extra storage if they need to constantly use data from multiple computers or if they always want to have a particualr file handy.

An external Hard Drive is most commonly used for backing up data or when you need to transfer a lot of data but you won't be able to have both of them right next to each other.

And finally, if you don't want to deal with the hassle of any of these solutions, you can take it to a tech center like Best Buy's Geek Squad who can transfer the data for you.
