As we begin a New Year that will move us closer to the end of the decade, many people in Victorville and across the High Desert are contemplating how they will act upon their resolutions without breaking them. As it happens, the most popular resolutions are also the ones that are more commonly broken, and they include losing weight, giving up smoking and paying off outstanding debts.

The problem with many New Year’s resolutions is that they are too broad and ambitious; they tend to lack clear goals are often too individualistic. For 2018, PC Performance Pros recommends one important resolution that we can certainly help you with: effective and secure data backup and recovery solutions.

Prevention Preparation In Case of Data Loss

If you have not yet implemented a data backup and recovery solution for your system, here is something for you to consider: every year, more than six percent of all personal computing devices in the United States suffer a complete and irreversible episode of data loss. Partial data loss situations happen to 31 percent of all computer users, and 60 percent of small companies go out of business a few months after a data loss incident.

With an adequate data backup solution installed on your server, desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, you will be able to enjoy peace of mind in 2018. Think of all the ways you could lose your documents, photos, videos, music, and apps:

  • Once a hard drive reaches its fourth year of operation, its chances of critical failure increase by 50 percent.
  • A tablet or smartphone accidentally dropped in a swimming pool or natural body of water could render flash memory storage inaccessible.
  • A fire could melt the microprocessors of solid state drives.
  • A ransomware attack that you cannot afford to pay will require you to reformat your hard drive or flash memory, thereby wiping out all information.

For 2018, your data backup options include cloud storage with file synchronization, remote server solutions, and external drives. To learn more about these methods, contact PC Performance Pros and speak to our technicians about backing up important files or imaging your entire device so that you can easily recover your entire system in case of total data loss.

With our lives becoming increasingly digital, the need for data backup solutions is crucial. This is your chance to protect your information and start your New Year with a smart resolution you will really be able to keep.
