“Task was not completed after diagnostic tests were performed. It was as per Christo's suspicion that the hard disk was defective and he was nice enough to reimburse transport costs.”

Ok - you can do in Concord west tomorrow or you can do in CBD next week (+ additional pickup/dropoff to you) - doesn't have to be Mon/Tues - I will let you choose
I will attempt a recovery without formatting the system as it will remove all configured application and data. If it's a hardware fault, no amount of formatting will do it any good.
If that's the case, I can go to your place at Concord West before noon tomorrow.

I'm running another task full time on Monday and Tuesday and should be able to reach the CBD by 5.30-6pm.

If you can try to recover without wiping that would good but understand if you cannot.
