Don't forget to backup

We've seen a spate of problems with hard drives recently with irreplaceable data at risk. Luckily we can recover the majority of files from hard disks but inevitably there is always a chance of that precious photo or document being lost. So remember to regularly backup your data to removable media such as DVD or CD.

Oh, and be aware that deleting files on a hard drive before you dispose of your old machine is not enough to prevent data being retrieved and used fraudulently by those so inclined.

If you need help with data recovery, advice on safe backup, or hard disk disposal give us a ring. But don't leave it too late...
