Why should I backup my computer every week?

Why you should back up your computer every weekA computer backup is a process of creating a second copy of important documents and files from your hard drive and saving the copy on a remote server. Duplicate copies of your important information saved in a remote location keep the information safe in case anything goes wrong with your computer.

While we would like to believe our hard drives are immune to incidents that cause data loss, in actuality, there are many ways to lose important files and information:

Computer crashes – "the blue screen of death" always happens when you least expect it and certainly when you do not need it to, and can lead to a loss of data, file corruption and the need for a complete restoration.

Virus/Malware infection – with malicious hackers working overtime to create viruses, trojan worms, and malware that can get around anti-virus software, aggressive viruses corrupt files and completely disable computers.

Hard drive failure - Because they have a limited lifetime, hard drives fail suddenly and without warning. The sudden death of your hard drive causes the catastrophic loss of several months' or even years' worth of irreplaceable files

Physical computer damage – While PC's come with a few issues of their own, your files are even more at risk on a laptop. With light and portable convenience comes reduced durability. Laptops are sensitive and one misstep, drop or spill causes easy damage

Theft – computers are a high ticket item for thieves who can strike at any time. Without a data backup, a thief is in possession of both your physical equipment and your sensitive data, photos and documents.

The bottom line is that it is wise to take steps to protect your information from sudden loss. A backup to your own computer's hard drive is ideal for restoration purposes, but in the event of a total computer breakdown or loss, your information is vulnerable. Weekly backups to remote locations make far more sense and are safer and easier.

Michael came to our office and fixed our iMac. He was very thorough and had it up and running in no time. Our office never missed a beat!

They did a great job in setting up my new laptop. They loaded new software and they moved over all my data and programs from a 12-year-old desktop. I'm thrilled with the new, faster computer and having all my old systems still working!!

I had a hard drive go down on a piece of video equipment. Michael and Computer Corner had me up and running in just a few days (parts had to be ordered). Thank you Computer Corner!

My son owns a computer businness in NC so when we needed someone local, we got a recommendation for Computer Corner from a friend. I am more than pleased. I will recommend them in a heartbeat. They communicated the status of my computer to me by text and the work was done very fast and the turnaround would probably have been faster if it hadn't been Thanksgiving week.

Best experience I've had with laptop repairs in Florida. Answered my many questions quickly, informed me of all of my options, and made sure I took home a well tuned machine. All repairs are costly no matter where you go, but at least you get what you pay for with the helpful staff here. As I type this, I'm planning another trip to see them.
