Hard Drive Replacement/Upgrade

Disk drive replacement tips, security & back up solutions

Replacing Drives

Desktop and laptop hard drives are the most common component to malfunction – especially traditional spindle drives. It’s often not a matter of if one will fail, but when it will fail.

Losing a drive when you’re in the middle of working on important things can be a real pain in the ass. Thankfully, replacing your old hard drive is typically an easy upgrade.

In some cases, hard drive replacement can become a pesky issue when you are not aware of the where the hard drive is located. Personal desktop computers are easily accessible, by removing the side case of the desktop pc, and the viewing which serial ATA cable is connected to the hard drive.

Disk Drive Replacement For Mac

The most common computer repair shop issues for Mac or Apple products are for laptops and desktops. For Mac laptops, the most common repair issues are logic boards, hard drives and screen replacements. Logic boards are compromised of tiny integrated circuit chips that make up the computing power for the unit.

Signs of trouble issues with logic boards usually stem from not having any power or beeping when it tries to power on. If you experience these types of issues, it would be your best choice to find a local repair soon, before matters get much worse.

Common Mac Hard Drive Issues

It might be common for Mac users to experience hard drive issues by seeing flashing folder icons with a question mark when you attempt to boot up for when you attempt to access information.

Data Backup & Solutions

Make sure all your content is on a backup, whether it be a USB external drive backup, cloud storage, or a NAS backup. Once your hard drive is removed, it”ll be almost impossible to recover the data from the hard drive.

Creating a clone of your hard drive

Creating a clone of your drive is the same process as imaging your hard drive. A cloned drive is an exact replica of your current drive and can be used as a method when you are ready to swap out a hard drive for a new SSD (solid state drive) storage drive, for faster and much better performance.

Windows 10 Backup Solution

Windows 10 comes equipped with handy little feature called Windows File History for backing up personal files built into your operating system.

Essentially, File History takes snapshots for your files, as you go, and stores them on an external USB hard drive connected to your personal device. Over time, File History builds a compiled library of previous versions of your documents to assist with your image recovery.

More information on File History in Windows can be found on Microsoft’s support website.
