John was friendly, interested in our network problems, systematic in investigating them, and comprehensive in solving a range of other computer issues that needed tidying up with a number of computers in our household.

Lovely review from Andrea Mon 14 Nov 2016 At Computer Repairs Fast, we really enjoy giving GREAT service and speaking in simple terms with people. We also really appreciate when people notice. :-) More
Recent testimonial from Phil Fri 28 Oct 2016 There are back-ups and there are back-ups that work for people like me - we're capable of using the software we need in our businesses, but not competent and quick in using software tools once in a "blue moon" to do our own system recovery.
John Nayler's Computer Repairs Fast service set me up to protect me in perpetuity from ransomware and virus attack, hard drive failure and my laptop being stolen, all of which have happened to me in the last few years. Now when it happens, I can do the ‘fix' myself in a heartbeat. John's backup recovery system keeps a mirror image of my computer - all the programs and data, everything; all together, so you just load it on to the replacement. It's a process that entails just a few steps I can write down and easily follow ….. and there's none of the delay or financial rape that I've experienced on

As tempting as it sounds, there is one fatal drawback to their use and relying on cloud storage places your files, pictures, documents, spreadsheets at risk.
Unfortunately, the most likely to fall prey to the flaw is small business, students and people that are not so good with computers.
All these people and others think that storing files on cloud storage will save them from all possible loss... The files are on the "cloud" right - so they are safe from
