Data Transfer, Backup &
If you need your data and software transferred to a new computer, we can ensure that ALL your data is
transferred properly and software is re-installed. We will migrate your files including: Documents, Desktop,
Favorites, E-mail Address Book, Emails Sent & Received, Music, etc.
If your hard drive crashes or you accidentally delete a file, we will assist with recovering both
system files and personal data.
We can recommend and implement a data backup solution to ensure that your vital data is backed up
properly. We offer both off-site and on-site data backup solutions depending on your needs and budget.
Although we hope disasters won't affect us, they can happen at the worst of times. It is still a fact that
the majority of small businesses do not have a comprehensive backup or disaster recover plan or procedure. If you
do not plan for it now, you'll have nothing to work from in the event of a real disaster.
Given that most of your crucial data is stored on a computer, it is probably time to consider implementing a
rock solid backup strategy with clearly designed procedures and documentation. A backup strategy is the heart of a
feasible disaster recovery plan.

Data Backup &
As part of our support of your IT system, you can opt for on-site or even online data backup. External
hard drive backup is fast becoming the backup method of choice for small businesses as it has relatively simple
setup and management costs. As your data is backed up onto a removable hard drive, you can have peace of mind that
a copy of all your data exists in case of disaster. Contact us if you are interested in learning more about
safeguarding your data.
Don't worry about it all sounding complex, time consuming and jargonized. We'll do all the work for you, explain
what we have done and why in plain English. We will define clear procedures to follow in the event of data loss or
a disaster. Remember that it may cost you at least ten times as much (if not everything) to start a non existent
disaster recovery scenario after a disaster. Consider how much time and money it would cost to reproduce all of
your lost data.
#1 Rule: Backup your data!
#2 Rule: Backup your data!
#3 Rule: Backup your data!
Nothing is as good as a full backup of your documents, records, and databases, configured to automatically
backup your data overnight. Having it performed automatically eliminates the chance of the user forgetting to start
the backup at the end of the day. However, be certain to check the error log for backup errors.

Run an error checking program, such as scan disk, on a weekly basis. This will help clean the drive of data
Defrag Your Hard
Run a defrag program on your hard drive monthly. This will organize your data and speed up the overall
performance of your system.
All computer systems should be connected to a high quality UPS (Uninterruptible power supply). Power surges can
cause undue data loss and hardware failure. Do not install a laser printer or a scanner on a UPS.
