As time goes by it becomes easier and easier to put it off one more day, week, month…..
Who knows if and when your hard drive will crash? Sometimes there are signs and sometimes not. I wish this on no one, but we’re so busy with life that something has to be pushed to the back burner.
For some the loss of data is no big deal, but for others it can mean a loss of family photos, personal records, business records and so on.
Should your system crash and no longer boot up there are options.
- – Format and install the operating system. There is the chance of losing some files.
- – Replace the hard drive and install the operating system
- – Call a friend
For those who must get their data back I recommend data recovery services. We use specialized hardware designed specifically for data recovery. There are software packages. Some work, some don’t, but this is another blog buzz for later.
I know the costs for data recovery can seem expensive, but you have to look at the value of the services. Retrieving priceless photos, personal or business records will make the costs seem negligible. Can you imagine losing one day of business records? So what happens come tax time? You see where I’m going. Look at the bigger picture.
Until next time from Data Buzz
