Typical Scenario: Chances are you have a lot of important stuff on your computer like financial documents, email, digital photos, music and more. Unfortunately, computers are vulnerable to hard drive crashes, virus attacks, theft and natural disasters, which can erase everything in an instant. Current statistics show that one in every ten hard drives fail each year. Hard drive crashes are one of the most frustrating experiences one can have with a computer. The inability to read data off of the hard drive can render a computer useless. Even if the OS can run, the data may be inaccessible or damaged. The cost of recovering a failed hard drive can exceed $10,000, and success is never guaranteed. Don’t put your important files at risk and consider backing everything up today. We offer many different data backup options from backups to CD, DVD, Cloud, external drive, or even remote offsite server.What would you do if you suddenly lost your data? How much would it cost to recover? Would your business survive? The only time a business owner asked who backed up the computer last is when you have a crashed hard drive, too late to ask this question.
