Family Run Data Recovery Service

Hi! My name is Aaron and we are the Hook family. My wife Angie and I saw a need for honest data recovery services, and Yellow Brick Data Recovery was born.

Our small business has the same equipment and expertise as the big guys. We can recover data from hard drives, solid-state drives, and flash drives. We are excited to provide one of the few recovery labs offering clean room data recovery services in Kansas. Most other labs ship their drives out for cleanroom services. We provide it in-house.

All our services are available nationwide through our mail-in service. We recover lost data from all over the country every week.

Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to helping you get your important data back.

    Yellow Brick Data Recovery was really great! My 5TB hard drive crashed on me, and they were quick to recover the data for me for a really good price! They are very nice and very helpful. I'll definitely use them in the future if I … More need to!

    Fixed a completely corrupted hard drive from our all-in-one computer!
    I had gone to computer repair store in town and they recommended Aaron at Yellow Brick Data Recovery for they couldn't recover the info. They spoke highly of him
    … More and referred to him as a specialist with very few in the nation with similar skills. I knew I was in good hands when the experts appreciated his work.
    Apart from his technical skills, his customer service matches his quality. He had it ready for me in 24 hours and still took the time to drop it off close by to me in Wichita.
    Don't look further, he's the guy to use.

    My backup hard drive failed, unknown to me. I found out when the laptop’s internal hard drive failed. Lifetime of personal & professional data was missing! Computer repair outfit installed new hard drive and tried to recover the … More data. However, the recovered data was only empty folders. They recommended Yellow Brick. Aaron got it all recovered. Moral is to check your backup drive regularly and keep Aaron’s phone & email handy! Thanks!!!

    Like an idiot I had all my irreplaceable family photos and videos on a single 4TB hard drive, and when I accidentally plugged the drive into the wrong power supply, I fried it. Burning smell, awful clicking noise, the works. I was afraid … More to tell my wife what I'd done, that I'd lost our ENTIRE family archive. So, I decided to try to find somebody to recover the drive. A google search led me to lots of companies, and I sent them all messages describing my dilemma. I got lots of canned responses, and one personal email from a guy named Aaron at Yellow Brick Data Recovery. When I told Aaron about my drive, he patiently explained what it would take to see if the files were recoverable, and what it would cost if they were. His prices were in-line with many of the others, and cheaper than most, and I was encouraged by his personal interaction, so I sent him my hard drive along with many prayers. Lo and behold, I get a message a couple of days later that said Yellow Brick had recovered 100% of my files! It's been a long time since I've gotten such welcome news. I'd highly recommend Aaron and Yellow Brick, both for their excellent communications, and also for their technical ability to recover a fried hard drive. THANK YOU AARON!

    I'll never go anywhere else for data recovery needs! After a frustrating experience with a big name data recovery company (in which they first quoted me over 2k to repair a dropped external hard drive, but when I said I couldn't … More afford that magically came back with a quote 1k lower) I did a second google search and found Yellow Brick Road. I'm so thrilled I did! Aaron is incredibly personable, straight-forward, communicative, and more than fair in pricing. I ended up having to pay a little bit more for a donor hard drive, but I did not mind because Aaron was so thorough in explaining why and it was still well below the quote I got from any other company. And he was able to recover every last bit of data on my broken hard drive. 20/10!
  • Avatar Scott Gordine ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    SMG Unlimited would like to give a huge shout out to Yellow Brick Data Recovery. We had a client come in with a failed hard drive. The drive had an internal mechanical issue with one of the heads. Aaron at Yellow Brick DR was able to … More replace the bad head from a donor drive and do a full 100% recovery of all the data.
    He is our go to for data recovery. Thanks Aaron!
  • Avatar Courtney Ast ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    Yellow Brick Data Recovery helped us with an external hard drive that we could not access any files on. The process was made easy with Wichita drop off at Ribbit Computers. He was able to recover invaluable photos and files that we thought … More might be gone forever. Highly recommend!
  • Avatar Charles Cope ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    I appreciated the fact that they had a "No Data, No Charge" policy. I put the Recovery Room for my quote, but when they contacted me they stated that until they got the disk, they may not need that extreme of a measure (i.e., … More they were willing to save me money). When they figured out the issue, they contacted me and gave me the Percent chance of success and let me decide if I wanted them to continue. Great service, professional and friendly.
  • Avatar Varigated Productions ★★★★★ 8 months ago
    Incredible! I called them freaking out after a drive with over $100k worth of client data on it. They were able to recover 100% of my files and saved my business. THANK YOU!
  • Avatar Katie Hammond ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have used Yellow Brick twice now. The first time was with an external hard drive that we had taken to another company (geek squad). After being told they couldn't recover anything, Yellow Brick was able to save all of our family … More photos and videos! Then we had him do a recovery from an old PC that hadn't been used in a decade and wouldn't work at all. Once again, all of our photos were able to be saved. Aaron kept me up to date throughout the process and the turn around time was exceptional. 10/10, don't waste your time with the bigger companies, we love YBDR!
  • Avatar Sarah Delgado ★★★★★ a year ago
    I cannot thank Aaron and Yellow Brick Data Recovery enough for helping me recover all of my family photos! After taking my WD Passport to Best Buy (Geek Squad) once it stopped working, I was told that there was nothing they could do and … More it would cost me thousands of dollars to have it shipped elsewhere to have the data recovered. I was upset thinking that was it, but decided to look online for any data recovery professionals in the area and found Yellow Brick Data Recovery! Aaron was wonderful to work with! He was very knowledgable; identifying and explaining what the problem was and then quickly fixing the issue; recovering all the data that I though I had lost. It was a huge sigh of relief! Thank you, Aaron! You are a life saver!
  • Avatar D C ★★★★★ a year ago
    I must say that Aaron offers not just a fairly-priced service, but also a friendly and very personalized one as well! He keeps you updated on the entire process via email, text, signal flags -- whatever you use to communicate. He rescued, … More 100%, an external hard drive that got damaged, as well recovering 25-year-old emails from my wife's father that were stuck on a hard drive inside a dead Gateway Handbook from 1994. Superb and fast service. Thanks, Aaron! David
  • Avatar Connie Newcome ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    Yellow Brick was very helpful. Retrieved all my information which was a HUGE relief. I appreciated so much their friendly service which went above and beyond what was required.
  • Avatar T.J. Kiser ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    Wonderful company, excellent service! Successfully recovered all of the files from a corrupted SSD when several other companies in town could not. I would definitely recommend!
  • Avatar Jalen Cooper ★★★★★ a year ago
    Aaron was very professional, friendly, and helpful. He did a great job of staying in touch and communicating while he worked on my HDD and SSD drives. He's even willing to go above and beyond to help me sort out a truly dead SSD.
    … More prices are not deceptive at all and when broken down via itemized invoice it is actually quite affordable given the services. With Aaron's help, I was able to recover thousands of dollars of work very quickly. While I hope my drives don't ever die again, I know exactly who to go to if that's ever the case.
  • Avatar Shane Kagle ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    What an awesome service! I had been hanging onto two old damaged hard drives just waiting for something affordable to come along. Aaron pulled my data from the two damaged hard drives with 100% success. I was fortunate that he was also … More in the area to pick them up and drop off my new hard drive when he was done. Fast, friendly, and affordable; I could not have asked for better service! I highly recommend!
  • Avatar LISA GASSMANN ★★★★★ a year ago

  • Avatar Theepebble ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    It was a fantastic recovery of all my data! My drive was spinning when I plugged it in, but the computer wasn't registering my device.

Thank you so much!

  • Avatar Scott Kliewer ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    My experience with Aaron was great! I had received his name from another computer tech and everything was very positive. He was willing to pick up and deliver my hard drive (I live in another town) and communicated several times throughout … More the process, letting me know his assessments and even gave me his estimate of which price tier I would fall under before he was finished. Everything was very professional, but with a personal touch. I would highly recommend Yellow Brick for data recovery services.
