CPR Computer Recycling

We all have electronic equipment that eventually reaches the end of it's useful life.

Willis IT Services is now happy to promote the services of CPR Computer Recycling, who although based near Gatwick, will arrange collections of any IT equipment nationwide. All data is safely destroyed and certified. Many parts are re-used and made into working computers again for business, educational and charity use.

Ashdown Solutions

Ashdown Solutions
Ashdown Solutions are an IT specialist providing business maintenance and infrastructure solutions, sales and hosting. Ashdown Solutions and Willis IT Services cover slightly different areas of the IT industry.

Ashdown Solutions cover a similar geographical area to Willis IT Services. In fact, the two companies often collaborate on large jobs to combine forces and knowledge, and to refer work to each company's specialist areas. To find out which company suits your needs, contact either company and you will be referred appropriately.


Data Recovery Specialists

http://www.datarecoveryspecialists.co.uk/
Willis IT Services provide data recovery for accidental loss of data and failing hard drives. However, sometimes that level of recovery just isn't sophisticated enough. This is where Data Recovery Specialists can help with your broken hard drive. They have laboratories capable of rebuilding most failed hard drives to enable recovery of your valuable data.

Estimates are always free. All you have to cover is the delivery cost to their lab.

They have an incredible recovery success rate, and provide a detailed description of the work.


FileHippo

FileHippo
I use this site most days to download free software. FileHippo contains copies of free software from other sites. What makes it useful is the speed and ease of use. Many software company's sites can make it hard work to download free programs, littering the page with adverts and registration forms.

FileHippo makes it easy to download this free software, and also contains old versions of software, with fast servers throughout the world.

The site contains user reviews and suggestions to help you find whatever you're interested in.
