New York Computer Repair: Hard Drives

A hard drive failure is about the worst thing that can happen to a computer user who doesn't back up regularly. Rather than having to learn this lesson the hard way, ensure timely back ups and make sure to address any potential hard drive issues the minute you get an inkling that something is wrong.

In many instances, continuing to operate a failing hard drive will make the situation worse, and your data will be harder to recover. There are many available diagnostic tools to verify hard drive integrity, and two of the most popular are built right into the Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.

Even with a perfectly functioning drive, you may find yourself running out of space. Not to worry, New York Computer Repair offers a full range of hard drives and can get you a storage solution you can live with. Whether you've got a desktop or a laptop, there are a stunning number of options to chose from. If you have one of the newer generation laptops, SATA drives come with a capacity of up to five hundred gigabytes. Desktop towers now max out with SATA drives of 1.5 terabytes. Contact a representative today to find out what hard drive options are available for you.
