About Shaw Data Recovery Services


Located in Ellicott City, Maryland, Shaw Computer Services has the same advanced hardware and software as the large national companies that charge $1500.00 or more to retrieve your vital files, photos, and anything else of value to you on your hard drive. This includes a PC3000 (without a doubt the most powerful tool in the data recovery industry), Deepspar Disk Imager, clean room bench, etc., and advanced technical support if needed. We are a CDRE (Certified Data Recovery Expert) company.

Unlike some companies, we offer free estimates and we will not charge you if we can’t get your data back. Our prices start at $375 for a logical recovery. The cost of other recoveries can vary due to time required, complexity of the job, and parts used. We can provide local pickup if you are within a reasonable distance of Ellicott City. Please call us at 443-364-8518 if we can be of assistance to you.

What Our Data Recovery Clients Say?

Testimonials from clients that have data restored that has been lost, accidentally deleted, corrupted or made inaccessible from a desktop, laptop, server or external storage system.

I was so lucky to find Phil Shaw. I had a 2TB Western Digital hard drive that appeared hopeless, and I had already asked two people to help me, without success. He found the data, moved it to a new drive, and saved our project which had a ton of video data. His price was less than half of what a national chain was quoting me. Then he did it again with a Toshiba hard drive (as I recall). Both the WD and Toshiba had external power. Then we had an SSD Drive, and the people at the Apple Store hooked me up with a new national service, telling me that I could expect to pay close to a grand to get the data off, and that the SSDs were much trickier and could be impenetrable. Phil found the data, moved it to a new drive, and got us back in business, for less than half of that. In the meantime, I had recommended him to a film-maker friend of mine who had a similar good experience. I highly recommend him.

If anyone has lost their data I HIGHLY recommend Shaw Data Recovery. I only had to pay if he succeed, and he was completely upfront with prices, telling me what would increase my price and what wouldn’t. (Geek squad was asking for at the least $250 for me to just send it to them, and up to a thousand bucks for me to get my data back. And they wouldn’t guarantee anything.). I didn’t tell him I needed the data ASAP but he still got it to me the VERY NEXT DAY! He even suggested and followed through with screen sharing so I could see what he retrieved and if it was good enough for me before I went to pick it up. Also it was a simple pleasure to just talk to him over the phone. Very personable, nothing like talking to a faceless rep.

I first went to the Geek Squad at Best Buys and was told that they would have to send my external hard drive out and that it would take 2 to 4 months for me to get it back. In addition to this disappointing news, I was also told that it could cost up to $1500 for them to retrieve my data. Thank God I found Shaw Computer Services. Mr. Phil was able to retrieve my data not only on the same day but at a much more cost effective price. Thanks so much Mr. Phil. I sincerely recommend Shaw Computer Services. You will not be disappointed.

Philip was unbelievably fast in recovering my thumb drive data. I called on a Monday morning, dropped off the thumb drive on Monday afternoon, and was back working with my files by early Tuesday afternoon. Very pleasant and professional, reasonably priced. You can’t go wrong with using his services.
