IN-HOUSE or ON-SITE SERVICES

We strive to succeed in your satisfaction with our services. If we cannot fix your computer or network related problem (software or hardware) no matter how long we spend working on it, there will be no charge for that service. We always recommend backing up your data before we service your computer as we are not responsible for lost data. When Customers ask us to backup or transfer data, it is the customer’s responsibility to tell us what specific files or folders they want backed up or transferred. We typically only backup the Desktop, Favorites, My Documents, and/or folders directly under the user name unless the Customer says otherwise.
