Reduce Operating Cost with Preventative Maintenance

Reduce Operating Costs
Preventative maintenance helps minimizes breakdowns or unavailablity that disrupts your business and lost time by waiting for service.  A fixed monthly price for preventative maintenance will ensure that your system has the most recent patches and that all services are running correctly.

Tips and Tricks

thumbtRun Scandisk and Disk Defragmenter at least once a month. This will keep your hard drive healthy
and prevent crashes. Alternatively, you can purchase 3rd party software utility software like PC Tools
Disk Suite or Norton System Works.

Purchase a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) for your computer. This will keep your computer
from crashing during power outages, and will protect your computer from brown outs and voltage surges.

 

thumbt A UPS is far superior to a surge protector and will save your computer from almost any
power disaster. Losing the power can also result in lost data or Windows files. We highly
recommend you purchasing this.

thumbtBackup any data you cannot afford to lose. The time to backup is when you create something you
can’t afford to lose. I recommend you save your information to a removable hard drive/flash drive drive, tape
drive or online. It’s easy to use and very secure.

thumbtUnplugging peripherals from the computer when it is powered up is a no-no. Unless it is considered
“hot pluggable”, you can damage the motherboard or the physical socket by accidentally shorting it
out.
