RESCUECOM Shares Seven Ways to Avoid Needing Data Recovery

SYRACUSE, N.Y., May 17th - One quarter of computer users experiences the need for data recovery. Do not put your data at risk. RESCUECOM offers seven simple ways to protect yourself and avoid the need for data recovery or computer repair.

1. Back Up

The simplest protection is regular data backups. There are many back up options: flash drives, external hard drives, or secure offsite backups. Regularly backing up your data guards against the need for costly data recovery.

2. Guard Against Viruses

Computer viruses are a main cause of data loss. Employing updated antivirus software protects your computer. A strong antivirus program will minimize your need for costly data recovery or computer repair.

3. Shut Down Properly

Shutting down your computer without properly closing out files and applications can cause data loss. Always close out all programs before shutting down.

4. Protect Against Power Surges

Power surges can cause data loss. Prepare for surges by using an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and a surge suppressor to protect against data loss and the need for computer repair.

5. Exploit the Experts

Some computer repair and data recovery processes are impossible without proper training and equipment. RESCUECOM offers 24/7 computer repair and data recovery services to handle these difficult tasks.

6. Practice Good Maintenance

Proper maintenance can prevent the need for data recovery or computer repair. Removing unnecessary files, defragmenting and checking for hard drive errors, and installing updates are essential preventative maintenance steps.

7. Look For Warning Signs

Unusual noises or sluggish performance are signs of trouble. If you notice warning signs, back up your data and contact a computer repair specialist for a diagnosis.
