A customer from Hallett Cove contacted me saying their old family computer was running very slow and often crashing in Windows 7. I took a look at the hard disk SMART status and it showed that the disk status was in critical condition and a replacement was suggested immediately. As the PC had all of their family photos and data on it they were keen to get it fixed so I supplied them with a new SSD + HDD and cloned all of their data across 1 for 1. All up, they were back in action with no data loss and running faster than ever at less than a third the cost of a new PC.
A customer from Trott Park contacted me saying his laptop was running super slow and had been crashing quite a lot over the weekend. I ran some tests on his system and was able to identify that the SMART status of his hard disk was in critical condition and a replacement was strongly recommended. I quoted him for a high speed SSD upgrade and he was more than happy to go ahead. The end result was a laptop that now runs better than new and boots up in under 15 seconds!
Today I’m having fun repairing ethernet cabling and resetting a few wireless access points at a school in Aberfoyle Park so that the kids can get into online resources and access nationally broadcast lessons. There’s always something on the go in an ever evolving technology focused environment 🙂
Today I’m helping a large earthmoving business sort out some issues on their file server. They have a scheduled backup that’s being sent across the network to a NAS but at the moment they have no proper and reliable offsite backup. I’ll be supplying them with two USB 2TB drives that can be taken offsite in a rotation basis as well as giving them options for a cloud backup so they can rest easy knowing everything is safe if the worst happens.
